Auto Setup [set] -> Enter

I am stuck here with no original remote and the unit is asking me the following with a blue screen (with audio from the tv tuner in the background): Auto Setup [set] -> Enter I have used 4 different universal remotes and none successfully utilize the "Enter" button. So I sit here unable to backup my Tivo Stuff onto tape. I know, I will eventually purchase a DVR, but I am stuck. Please Help!

I agree with Techman. I also suggest that you try to program your your Universal Remote for SANYO, as a lot of the earlier Fisher Machines were sourced from Sanyo.

Im really sorry But theres nothing that can be done, unless you borrow a freinds fisher remote, or see if a local store has one you can borrow. You can purchase one at, but its probably going to cost at least a good 25 to 45 bucks. Borrow a freinds video machine that does have a remote or a new machine is only 40 bucks these days. sorry to have to deliver the bad news to you.

My flat screen Sylvania TV is flashing different colors what's wrong

Better late than never. The problem is that your TV is in the service mode. There are many ways this can happen. But, lets just get down to fixin this! With the original remote and the TV on. If the TV will not shut off, do this. Press the left cursor button on the remote, followed with pressing the right cursor. Power off the TV with remote, or press off button on TV.

Secondly, your TV will power on and off. But you have flashing colors. Do this. With the original remote and TV on. Press the up cursor button, on the remote, followed with pressing the down cursor. Power off TV with remote, or press off power of TV. Thanks for asking me, Matt of Martins TV Repair.

While the set is on, pull the power plug. Then hold and depress the power button in for about a minute. Then replug set and turn it back on. If that does not reset the tv then you do indeed have a serious issue with the set.
