    No input from the DVD player. Works fine with cable hook-up. I have the original remote, have used that..unplugged TV and DVD many times...took the thing apart and back together again (out of mere frustration). Screen remains blue with no volume when on DVD mode. I have used this combo a total of 3 times in a whole worked well before.

Your going to need the original remote to switch back to AV input in the menu. It should explain in the owners manual how this is done. If you do not have that or cannot find the manual go to a search engine and look up emersom dowmloads it will show up as I think PS dont forget to rate this.

    Nope the link is wrong. Just search for it and you will find it.



When watching tv, a blue box which covers about less than half of the bottom half of the screen pops up about 2 minutes into watching and will never go away. Only goes away if you press volume up/down, but comes back after 5-10 seconds later.

How do you hook up dvd/vcr to play on this tv

This television has front and back rca jacks. Those are the yellow red and white holes. You would get an rca cable and connect it between this television and the dvd player. Then you would have to change av inputs on the television's remote to access the DVD player's signal.

I have a spongebob TV and teh remote stopped woring can i buy just a replacement remote? My Cable TV remote wont work


Please contact for replacement remote. it's where I got mine or
just get a generic remote and any tv shop .

Actually I found there are several remotes that work. The first is the Bright House networks remote, the larger one that they provide you when you get digial service.

The second is The Universal Remove Control by GE. It's numbered 24944 in the upper right hand corner of the paper. It's sold for $4.94 at Walmart in the checkout area...

I found that manually inputting the code for the remote doesn't work. You have to do a search for the code using their method...on this particular remote from Walmart, its hold the setup button down until it lights up, then press and depress the TV button...then press channel up until the TV changes channels. It worked once, but I just kept going, the 2nd time it worked, then I pressed the mute button [to keep the code] and it simply press input and it switches to AV.

I have to admit I thought it was ridiculous that you can't use this particular TV without the remote, but I was happy that I went through the effort the first time to keep trying remotes...

This is the first kids TV that I have found that you can't find the AV channel by going through the channels AND you can't hook up two items to the AV outlets because you have to disconnect the back or front ones, to use the other....PLUS it only comes with a dual AV outlet, instead of the 3 plugs [red, white, yellow] only has the white and yellow.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Spongebob dvd player is not playing on Spongebob sb 314 tv

You need a TV with an A/V input option. I believe your set does not have this option.

You can look at getting an A/V modulator. Check with any local electronics store. The salesman can give you the details about how to set this up with an A/B switch so that you can select between the modulator and the cable system.

well if you change the channel to the highest it goes some TV can be changed to a/v mode

or the lowerest number under 2 sometime a/v might be there

No sound but plays the dvd fine

I think this is due to wrong Audio settings.
Try to change audio setting as Stereo/Right or Left/5.1 from the Audio setup of the Menu

Spongebob tv

You can only have one item plugged in to the ave jack at one time. Seems silly for a tv with two sets of av ins, but i ran in to the same problem and this works. Just unplug the dvd player or the game console.
