Red face

Well, not long ago the channel changing button on my Zenith TV broke off. My little son took to poking with a pencil, where the button used to be in order to change the channel. Now it seems the "button?" is stuck, making the TV constantly changes the channels going up. Is there a way for me to fix this?

Thumbs up

Good Morning, Spud:
In answer to your question, not easily. Actually I am a little dismayed at the thought of a youngster pushing anything into a TV set. Sigh!

You will have to remove the back of the set and dismount the channel selector and associated circuitry. This is usually bolted to the front of the cabinet. The next thing is to determine the failure. The switch may be damaged from the pencil, the pencil lead (which conducts electricity) may be broken off and shorting something.

There's no easy way to answer this question except to open it up and have a look.
