Question about Vizio VX32L Television
MY TV CHANGES CHANNELS, VOLUME AND INPUT BY ITSELF, IT ALSO TURNS ON WHEN IT IS OFF. I ALREADY CHANGED ONE TV ONE WEEK AFTER BUYING IT BECAUSE OF THE SAME PROBLEM. I REALLY NEED HELP!
Is this tv the same model/brand? far be it from me to claim poltergeists are at work, but who knows... the very first thing i would do in diagnosing this issue is to grab some electrical tape and aluminum foil, tape a patch over the ir receiver for the remote, this should be a shiny piece of black plastic somewhere on the front of the tv, some are marked, some are not.. if you have it, aluminum duct tape works great for this purpose.
to me, it seems like someone is messing with you using a remote, tv-b-gone, or similar product like a keychain universal remote.. if the tape over the ir sensor fixes the issue, i would look at roommates, kids, neighbors, or possible interference from other ir or light sources..
possible culprits would be:
dirty remotes that keep sending a signal with nobody using it
laptops or cellphones with an irda port
palm devices such as palm, clie, etc that have irda
intermittent strobes (emergency vehicles, bad ballast in a light fixture, etc)
i can't guarantee this is your problem, but it seems like it since this is your second tv with the same or similar problem... as a sidenote, the sony clie came with a universal remote program, i caused much chaos in my local video stores by shutting down their video wall while browsing.
