Question about Symphonic ST420FF 20" TV

1 Answer

No remote and cannot change to video mode!

Hey friends I need your help. My Symphonic TV doesn't have a remote. I was able to watch dvd before I hooked up cable. After I added cable and all the channels I cannot watch dvd anymore. I even tried to unhook the cable line and hook back the dvd the same way it was before but it wouldn't change to video or dvd mode. I even tried many different channels to no avail. Is there a way I can change it back and forth without a remote? Thanks

    i have a remote that has the option for video source bypass that allows me to switch between them, but it does not belong to me and i need to find out how to do it without the remote. I have new cable set up and programmed its remote as a universal remote but the bypass option on that one does not work wither.

Hey i can not get tv to swap over to vidio mode to watch dvd how do i do that

Just hit the button on the remote. It should be labeled "tv/video" or something close. There may be a button on the TV itself.

If its not working try getting a universal remote. You can program it for your tv and get it switching.

Try these and get back to me. If this does not work we will look at other things

I cant select games mode manually on the symphonic

I think, after you have the rca jacks inserted into the tv and to the game you're playing, youshould be able to move the channel button down past channels 3 and 2. And or hit menu on the tv and look for setup. Try that!

I have no remote and want to watch DVD

You need the remote . Sorry to tell you this but you can go to to see if they have a cheap one for sale . Some universal remotes do not let you function your tv completely . Most of the time they just let you turn it on/off - volume up/down - and channel up/down . The exact remote is always the best. You never have to worry about codes ! Good luck

Video mode

I went to add/delete channels in my menu on my symphonic and it let me scroll through the channels, make sure you have them all set to add (by pushing the volume buttons to make them light blue instead of purple)....after adding all of your channels (or just the one if you use dish) just power the tv off while on a channel and then power back on and you should have tv.

Can't find a channel to watch a DVD pre-recorded DVD

you should have a input select button on your remote. video 1 should be the front and video 2 should be the back. i had to buy 3 or 4 different universal remotes when mine messed up just to get the one button to change to change it to the inputs because there is no other way to change it to that with he buttons on the tv. kinda surprised that you didn't try and push that button yet.
