TV Remote Issues

We've been using a small 12V TV / DVD combo for 2 years now. The other day after watching a DVD, it would not eject. Then I noticed that every time I pressed the eject button the fan in the WFCO panel would come on. I took the TV home and verified that it was broken, and then disassembled it to get the DVD out.

So, we bought a new TV, different brand. This time I'm using it on AC since we now have power.

Now, every time I hit the up / down button for channel or volume, the built in house radio / stereo is affected. One hit and the radio comes on at the default station (not where it was set). Successive hits and the channel changes. This is all with the remote. The buttons on top of the TV do not affect the radio.

I'm not sure if there's a question in here. Anyone else encounter a similar problem?

Does your built in radio/stereo have a remote control? If so the IR signal from your TV probably also works the radio. You can try blocking the sensor of the radio.

Yes.. We have a small Axess TV 19 inch. The channel changing button makes the radio come on. Its a shock when the radio volume is high. We set the radio volume to the lowest setting , cause we can't figure it out.

The radio came with the TT. The television did not.

If I had a question it would be, which to shoot?

I'll try that. I'm also going to try the old remote from the old TV.

Thanks...

Where IS the sensor on the radio. We tried duct tape over various parts with no luck.
