Question about RCA F32650 32" TV

2 Answers

Keeps changing channels/volume by itself

The on/off button does not work, but the remote turns it off and on ok.

Then it just keeps changing channels and volumes.

It cannot be set to any channel with the remote or channel selection on the tv.

First problem ever.

The on/button has been split for a long time, but worked well up to this point.

I took the front switch unit to a repair man to have the switches replaced, or the whole cuicuit board.  He took one look, sprayed the whole board with WD40, and said try that!  When I put it back together, the on/off button worked, but everthing else did not.  I then took a can of automotive spray for wet wiring problems and soaked the whole cuicuit board and the switches  down and let it soak in. Then dabbed up the excess and put it back together.  Everything has worked perfectly now for two weeks!

One or more of the front switches are likely leaky.  They are less than $3 apiece and I just change them all to save future problems.  You might be able to push all of the buttons on the front of the set a few times such as volume up and down and channel up and down and temporarly cure the problem but the switches will likely need to be changed.

Cant use menu


You may need a different remote. Is this a universal remote? Some of them have these common problems. Mine, for instance, doesn't use the OK button at all; instead, the Menu button counts as the OK button.

Try navigating the menu with the TV's volume / channel buttons (the ones on the TV itself, not on the remote). This usually works. Try that until you get a different remote.

My tv was playing fine when I turned it off. Later, I drop the remote prior to attempting to turn the tv on.Tv will not turn on with or without remote.


OK, YES you CAN turn on the TV without the remote, in fact you can do nearly everything that can be done on your remote, on the TV itself, NOW look, CAREFULLY around the edged or sides of your set, you will find there are "Buttons" usually there are 6 - 7 Buttons, if you look carefully at them you will see they are marked, usually with a Volume Up & Down, word, or symbol, A Channel Up & Down, buttons a Menu, an Enter, and an ON/OFF button, & sometimes others. Now To turn on, Press and hold the Power button, the TV will Turn ON, you can change Channels, with the Channels, and Volume, with the Volume ones. The Menu button, will allow selection to all the other sub menus and settings. IF you need to get a remote, Please, get an original, it may be more hassle, it may take longer to get, it maybe costs more... BUT IT WILL WORK. Universal remotes, well, read through a few posts dealing with them, and you will see what I mean. IF you MUST get one, absolutely ensure that it performs every function the original one did, or you can have many headaches.

To restore full functionality to your set you must replace the remote that came with set. Universals only control the most basic of functions.
