SAMSUNG PN42A400C2D 2008 model In the past 3 months tv has started turning the volume all the way up & down by itself. Sometimes it stays at the highest level and sometimes it does not. I can eventually get the volume to stop moving with use of remote. BUT... now (this month) it is also changing channels all by itself too & it will not stop even with use of remote OR buttons on the side. Also while I am watching tv a box will pop up that says something like (this action/function not available).

I have a Sony Bravia kdl 32w5500 and it periodically switches itself off whilst watching programmes on one particular channel (WIN TV AUSTRALIA).

I programmed my sudden link remote to my tv and turns my tv on an off, controls the volume, but when I try to change the channel of my television with the remote, the red cable light on the remote lights up as if it thinks I'm trying to tell it to change the channel on the sudden link channels and not the channels of my tv....help?

Sony kdl-46ex710 Hi, My remote control stopped working for my kdl-46ex710. The remote itself works, changed batteries etc. and have tried the remote towards my mobile camera to see that the ir flashes. Have also tried the remote with another sony tv, same model, and it works. It seems like it is the ir receiver in the tv that have stopped working. I don't have a warranty left so what to do? Can I repare or exchange the ir receiver my self? Any other solution is appriciated.

I have all possible favorites entered, all HD channels, most are 600 numbers (my carrier is Comcast). They have stopped working: it'll get as far as the 6 and then go to channel 6. Sometimes it will get the second digit, but never the third. Also, entering in the channels manually on the number pad doesn't work either. I changed the batteries but still experience these symptoms. To avoid channeling up from 6 to the 600 series I access the onscreen Guide, but even arrowing down through that
