I have programmed my remote to an older JVC television. everything works, but i cannot change the input from the remote. I have a ps3 hooked to the tv. anytime i want to play my ps3 i have to manually press the menu button like a million times until i finally find the input option. is there a way to get the input button working? or at least find input in the menu? the menu button works on the remote.

After watching for about 10 to 20 minutes the tv does something weird like your'e pressing the input button. It keeps switching from tv to vidio or whatever else happens when you press the input button. When the screen keeps switching like that it just goes back and forth so your picture keeps coming on for a second and then back off. If you try to press the input button to fix it nothing happens. You just have to turn off your tv. It has its own dvd player on the bottom. I'm wondering if that

Toshiba 32AF44. While watching a baseball game yesterday, the volume bar appeared by itself and scrolled down to zero. The bar will not disappear. It's like someone is holding the down button. Tried using the TV remote to raise the volume, change channels, turn TV off. The remote changes nothing. So, I took batteries out of remote to isolate the problem to the TV. Using only the buttons on front of TV: On-off button will not turn off the TV. Volume-up button works until I release, and then
