Try removing the batteries from the remote control, in case it is a sticking channel Up/Down button in the remote control.

If that doesn't resolve the problem then try pressing the Channel Up/Down button on the TV to see if this has any affect on the problem.

Try turning Off the TV and disconnecting the power for a little while then reconnecting the power to the TV and switching On to see if this has 'reset' the TV.

Hi @kelsypardue64,

What is the model number of the TV?


My tv is doing same thing. If I hit the menu bit then it pops up and continues to scroll it's a FW32D08F any help for this problem. I have taken batteries out of remote. Unplugged it for 10 minutes and the result was the same. It first started by the volume going to 100 and I could get the remote to turn down but it was constantly still going up so I remotely powered off. Then upon turning on it was flipping through the channels no noise and I could not turn off had to unplug


@blapip23 did you follow the answer outlined by @jayeff? did any of that work for your TV?
