Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I bought several RCA TVs model # J20010DW. They work well but I can't get to the menus to program the channels. I have an RCA remote, it turns them off and on, and does the channel scrolls. But I can not change the channels with the numbers. It will only go to the channels that are already programed in.

You are going to have to check all of the small tact switches behind the push buttons in the front of the TV set. In the past, someone may have cleaned the picture tube and the liquid dripped down onto the switches and corroded them, or one is stuck closed or the remote sensor is bad. The best way to test this would be to replace the entire switch panel in the front of the TV set. Good Luck

SOURCE: RCA TV won't change channels

Your set uses the 195 series chassis and you have something set wrong in your guide plus. Go into the TV's menu and do a complete set-up. Take the remote and press MENU, then "8" to enter setup, then press "1" for "begin setup now" and then press "1" for English, and so on. You must enter "set up guide plus+", then press OK on the remote to choose "setup", select "USA", enter your zip code, and then if you choose "yes" for "do you have cable?" you MUST then choose "no" for "do you have a cable box" If you choose "yes" for that choice, your tuner will lock on one channel no matter what channel you try entering. After choosing "no" for "do you have a cable box", choose "no" for "do you have a VCR?", exit the guide plus menu and then skip the rest of the steps by pressing "2", and then exit the main menu by pressing "0". Your channels will then work normally.

Check to make sure the channel down button is not stuck. If it is not the button is probably defective. Mits has had a lot of problems with the buttons.

So many times there are multiple codes that will work with TVs. I am not talking about the DUH..there is a whole list of codes. I am saying do not settlle on the first code that worked for you. Try them all and see if that makes a difference first. If you get really frustrated then I would move up to a remote that can be programmed for individual buttons. URC MX350 is the one that I use for my clients. They are a little tricky to program but you can program any button you want by teaching it with a "point and click" approach.

My Volume and Channel button won't work and so I have bout 2 remotes, neither of them have worked, one is the RCR311BR remote which has been noted to work for this tv. What else can I do


I have a 2000 model RCA P52923 and I had the same problem occur a couple of days ago. The sound hasn't worked for a couple of years, but the TV is connected to an RCA surround sound to resolve that issue. Most recently, while watching TV, it began to start scanning channels by itself. I shut it off and unplugged it for a couple of days, but each time that I turn it on, it begins to immediately start scanning each channel. Neither the remote, nor the channel buttons on the set are able to stop the scanning, and neither of them will perform any functions, including turning the set on and off.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Most TVs have both a consumer menu system and a service menu system. Assuming you stayed in the consumer menus, there maybe a reset or defaults selection. Look around. If you don't find it, use google to locate a downloadable manual for your specific model. An occasional TV resets to default settings if you unplug it for 48 hours. Many have resets in the set menu when you program channels, parental control and time.

How do I install a channel to receive satellite programmes? My model is LE19R8


If you have a satellite and it is connected with coaxial cable put the set to channell 3 or 4. If the satellite is connected with RCA cableput the set on that source the cable are connected to. No need to program the set. Use the cable remote to change the channels just use the tv remote to turn the set on and off and for volume.

The simplest solution would be to buy a new remote for testing purposes. I own a One-for-All universal remote (model URC-4220), which I bought at Walmart, for less than 10 dollars. It is compatible with Zenith TVs. (You can return it later, if necessary).
If the channel-changing problem is not resolved with your new remote, then you will know for sure there is a defect in your TV, which requires the expertise of a repairman.
