Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
So you have lost, or, your remote doesn't work? You can't "Do anything" without it.... Right.... NO Wrong... ALL TV sets have a number, usually about 5 - 6, "Buttons" on the side, front, somewhere. usually close to the "Power ON" switch. Now these "Buttons" will perform nearly all, if not all, of the main functions of your "Remote" They WILL be marked, MENU, +, -, <, >, & OK or ENTER. Now you simply have to depress each button to access the "Functions" you want. One button WILL control the "Function" say Channel, and the <, >, will Go UP & DOWN. This is the same for everything. So one button will make it, say go UP, another will make it,say, go DOWN. Repeated presses on the "Function" Button will scroll through the "Functions" IE: Channel, Brightness/Contrast, Selecting Inputs, once "Selected" another "Button" will move the "Selector" through to the Bottom & another will scroll it back Up, sometimes the ONE button will simply continuously scroll "right around" Of course have a look in your manual... you know that paper thing you shoved away in the cupboard... This will explain it all. ALL TV's and devices that use a "Remote" are ALWAYS able to "Control" the MAIN functions of the unit,via keys on the actual unit itself. So don't despair, just spend a bit of time learning your "Buttons" that way even if the "Remote" does go walkabout, or the batteries go flat, or it just stops working.. well now you can still have complete control.. the only draw back is you will have to get put of your seat to do it. A small price to pay?
