Unfortanatly, your gonna need the original remote or a simular one to get to the channel programming mode in the menu. You can go to or call 1-800-remotes and get one for your set. Im sorry i couldnt assist you more. Good Luck

I can't get the VCR mode off the TV screen in order to watch TV.

try looking for either "source" button on the remote or ""input" choice. also you can try using the channel changing buttons, sometimes you can get out of vcr mode by just going up or down on the channel selector

Black Box on screen

By your description it sounds as though the closed captioning option has been turned on on the TV. Only certain programs are CC capable and that accounts for the box moving from channel to channel as some broadcasts are not CC CAPABLE. Go to the menu on the tv and ensure closed captioning is disabled. This should resolve the issue. If you need more help please let me know.

Black area on screen,

Hi omsoc,

This could possibly be an issue with closed captioning. While some closed captioning is a marquee-type text near an edge of the display, your television may have an option turned on to display a different channel of captioning that would likely display a large black box on your screen if there is no data to display. This would explain why this would take place suddenly at the same time each night, as well as why pressing the display button would cause it to disappear. I suggest you look into your menu to try turning this option off, then watch the channel you normally watch at this time. If this does not resolve the situation, I recommend you contact your manufacturer’s product support line.

Thank you,

Input for cable

Most tv's dont need to be on an input for cable. Just channel up and down or change from LIne1 or Input1 to TV or CATV.

Only receive 2 channels.

Can you punch in the channel numbers directly to go to the channels, but just not tune to them with the Channel Up/Down buttons?
If so then try tapping the favorite button on the remote until the screen shows "favorite mode off". This mode likes to stay [or perhaps turn] on when you scan for channels, but scanning clears everything in the favorite list except for the channel you are on when you start the scan (so it seems), thus leaving only one or two channels showing up. (This happens whenever I re-scan for digitals.)
To pick out favorite channels, go into the channel menu in the tv menu and with "Favorite: Analog" or "Digital" highlighted near the top, hit OK on the remote to toggle favorite status.
