It only displays "line" and channel 5 when I use the channel selector on the set. I don't have the remote; is there another way to change the channels? I want the connect it to a converter box that requires channel 3.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Make sure it is on the tv channel (5) in your case, then hold down play and FF buttons at same time for 5 seconds or so. TV will turn off. When it comes back on screen will show auto program screen, push the channel up button and you will be set. I bought a 6 dollar RCA grey remote at the Family Dollar store, pushed code search then VCR button and code 0162 then enter button. Remote works just fine.

The remote model number for the Quasar VV2008 is VSQS1570 and can be ordered from Panasonic at 1-800-221-7262 or Go to a Family Dollar store and purchase the grey RCA universal remote for $6.00 about 6 inches in length. When you are ready to program it for the Quasar VV2008 push the code search button then the VCR button and enter 0162 then push enter. The red light should go off and the remote should turn the TV/VCR off and on. It worked for me 4/19/2013
Sometimes the universal remotes do not compromise fully with certain models especially with combo models.
So you might a different type of universal type to connect with the Quasar codes, but it is ideal if there is the model mentioned in the manual of the remote.
Volume and channel working is what is most important and should be considered good enough.
Sounds like you need to go to the main menu and run the automatic channel selector again. It will take note note of which channels are not in use and then skip over them when you use the channel advance. Use your remote to get into the main menu and select the "TV" submenu. Then run the auto channel select. After that's done, you can also manually choose to skip channels you don't like. I believe the channel numbers appear in green if they're to be included, and yellow if they're to be skipped. Even if a channel is skipped, you should be able to get to it anytime by punching in the number on your remote.
You might be able to restore the factory settings by pressing "play" and "FF" simultaneously and hoding them down until the set shuts off (about 5 seconds). Then when you turn it back on it will lead you through the setup routine, which includes auto channel select.
