    Do not have original remote, there is no universal remote that will work, can not manually change channel on TV to add a component, like tv/vcr input ot Aux..etc I looked up the Funai Corp and it confirms that this TV needs the original remote. I have tried to hook it up thru the satellite box but still wont play a component.

  • reeze Oct 21, 2008

    No a/v button on the TV. There are (3) jacks, yellow for video, white and red for audio. this is to add the DVD player but thats all, plug (3) to TV and other end (3) to DVD

    The TV used to work with a Philips universal remote but it stopped working also. I will try the RCA remote but I might as well just buy the original from Its a Emerson remote #NE116UD. I have already bought teo other universals.

    Thank you for your help

    Where is the sensor and how do I fix it?? If the TV is hooked to the sattelite box shouldnt the sattelite remote control the TV? (which it doesn't)


  • reeze Oct 22, 2008

    Sorry for the confusion. I can change channels thru the satellite box with the satelitte remote. The sattelite remote will not turn the TV on/off or allow me to add DVD player. I am pretty sure that I need to buy an original remote control so I can have that "input" button which will allow me to toggle between TV and DVD.

    thanks for all your help

    I have a Sylvania TZ combo tv/vcr. The TV doesn't respond to my remote. The remote is new. Is it possible to fix the sensor inside the TV?

    if the other remote just quit working then you might have a dirty IR sensor on the tv or the remote sensor needs to be replaced on the tv

  • jason Oct 22, 2008

    the satellite remote will only control the sattelite channels , I thought you were trying to change the tv's video source and channels

    the tv remote sensor will be on the front of the tv , usually it has a circled tinted plastic over it , but it could be dirty from the inside of the tv.

    try the remote close up as well to determine if the IR sensor works or not

    you can also use a flashlight to look thru the plasic that is in front of the tv for the IR sensor to see if it is dirty in there

Perhaps your dvd player output is set for channel 3 so you have to select that channel for the dvd player to play on your tv. Some older analog tvs have a separate input for dvd on the back or front. In that case you have to select that setting from the tv menu

Broken remote cant set to component

On most TV's you can select the source or input by going into the menu on the tv. It is usually under set up although all tv's vary. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If you need further assistance please let me know.

I have this same TV. The DVD player is either hooked up to the video or s-video input. Go to the Menu (either through the remote or from the front of the TV) and select the Setup option. Go to the part where it asks if you want to use a DVD player. Select yes. Then select Video Input. Exit the Setup. When you hit the DVD button, it will switch to the Video input. The second step is to go into the Menu and select Channel, then go to Video Input Source. From there, select which input you are using for your DVD player, the S-Video or the standard Video (yellow composite cable).

Emerson Spongbob tv broken remote...cant change input?

Then the only way to reach your tv is through coaxial antenna port. So you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your red yellow and white cables (rca cables from a dvd, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me.
