Maybe you just got all cozy on the couch and looking to have a great time watching your movie at night. But all of a sudden, your TV volume is going up and down all by itself. Is it time to call an exorcist or ghostbusters?
No. It is time for you to read the article thoroughly and look for the solution.
Why Your TV Volume Going up and Down Automatically and Fixes
1. Remote issues
The first thing that might cause problems is your TV remote. And the best way to diagnose this problem is by completely shutting off your remote control, take the battery off so it can not interact with your TV.
Now turn on your TV manually. If the problem is gone, then all of this was due to a faulty remote, which you can easily switch and get a new one. We highly recommended getting a universal TV remote.
If the problem still persists, then dive deeper into the article.
2. Software issues
The second reason why this may happen is due to a software issue. Most TV has software built in that is design to regulate and optimize the performance of the user. If the issue is not with your remote control, then there is a high chance that you are dealing with a software issue.
To fix this problem, go to the user setting on the TV screen. There you can find a software reset or factory reset option. A complete factory reset might just fix any issues with the volume slider, and your TV will be as good as new.
3. IR Sensor Issues
If both of those previous fixes do not work, then it is time to open the back panel. Always be cautious while working inside the TV, as the Electronic component tends to store up charge on its capacitors. You could get shocked!
So firstly, turn off your TV, unplug it and take it down from the TV Stand.
Then take off the back panel. In the bottom part of the TV, there will be an IR sensor. If you can find it, then check if the wire that connects the IR sensor to the main motherboard of the TV is damaged or not. If it is damaged, you can do some simple wire change and soldering to fix the issue.
Call a professional if you’re unsure!
4. Use Warrantee
If none of the above-mentioned fixes works, then it must be some sort of problem on the TV board itself. And we ever advise to try things out with the mainboard without the right expertise.
So, at this point, you should take your TV to utilize your warranty and let the company fix the problem for you.
5. Call a tv repairman
If the warranty is void already, get help from your local mechanics. Most of them have years of experience under their belt and will be able to solve the issues in no time.
So, you can go back to enjoy watching your tv without any hassle whatsoever.
