All in a triangle formation. The role of random,false or truth are

assigned to 3 players. These players must guess his and the
roles of others to win. No one know at the start his role or the
roles of player on his left and his right.

Holding a grounded device they  should press a button for a guess:
(buttons can be repeatedly press but 3 right ones will do)

Players       False      Truth     Random
Left                 O          O          O
Center             O          O          O
Right               O          O          O

1) The random player will get a jolt of volts (electric shock)
 if his last 2 succeeding  guesses are both true or  both false.
2)The false player will get a jolt of volts if his guess is true.
3)The truth player will get a jolt of volts if his guess is false.

What buttons they should press to win  with least try and pain ?

Sorry, TSLF. I don't think I understand your comment. Are you saying that it's possible that a liar gets jolted twice by pressing LT followed by LR? It's either a T or R to his left, so both of these cannot be true.
