Question about JVC AV-20921 20" TV

1 Answer

Remote The above model TV was given to us without the remote control. Worked fine with universal changer, but has now gone into 'timer' mode (we have no idea how it did this as the universal timer used does not have a timer function). We have tried leaving the TV 'on' and 'off' for extended periods, but the 'timer' light remains persistently on and the TV remains unusable. Any help gratefully accepted. Or, where can I buy a remote for this TV? Many thanks........................lightbbrown

Re: Remote

I went to JVC and looked up the user manual ,the troubleshooting section describes the symptom you have and it says the set has an internal problem and should be taken in for service.You can go to ,click on the manual number and the instruction book will open ,scroll down to page 21 and you will see the note.The problem in the set could be related to the horizontal output transistor being bad(shorted) It might have caused a fuse or safety resistor to open and create a dead set condition.If you are familiar with tv service you have a place to check but if you are not too familiar take the set to a servicer for an estimate.Let us know if you need more information.

Zenith menu without remote

Without a remote control, you can't program it. If you wish to buy its original remote control, you have to contact the authorized service center. If you wish to buy a universal remote control, you should know about, which brand remote control have setup code to your TV/device brand. You should first make sure about the number of digits in the codes to your device have. There are 3-digit, 4-digit, 5-digit and even 2-digit codes. You can get this detail by the code list attached to every universal remote control. The brand name of the remote control you select isn't a matter; but, its code list should have setup codes to your TV/device brand, otherwise you can't set it up with your device. For more information; check the links given below, and find which brand remote control has setup codes to your TV/Device brand. Setup code list & setup procedure to some popular brand remote controls are given. Check it, and determine which brand remote control should be bought, and buy that brand remote control, according to availability.

Durabrand TV stuck on AUX mode

You can program a Comcast remote to work with the TV. Press the "TV" button on the Comcast remote. Then, hold down the "Setup" button until the red light blinks 3 times. Enter a 5 digit code:
These are the Durabrand codes: 10171 10463 10180 10178 11034
The 10171 code worked for my Durabrand DWT1905. Then use the TV/VCR button located beneath the "7" to switch inputs.

Lost remote

I just purchased one of these televisions and it didn't come with a remote. However, a Philips Universal Remote (SRU2103/27)
with a code 0520 works fine. I haven't explored all the codes but I can easily change from tv stations to Video 1 and Video 2 merely by pressing the "Input" button on the remote. Another reply mentioned using a duraband model instead of Emerson and it worked for him.

On Screen Clock Display

Without the original remote or a universal remote that does not have a display button, try unplugging the television for at least 2 minutes and plug the tv back in. This should reset the tv display. If the universal remote has a display button, depress the display button until you get the desired display results.

Yippie, I figured out a solution that worked!!! I have a univeral remote from comcast, on that remote near the bottom left is a small button that says (input) tv/vcr, press that one time and whala!! the tv video screen was gone, I had to manually change the channel from the tv channel button on the unit. once I changed the channel to 3, my universal remote worked... the button is the second one from the bottom left... I was on hold with sanyo for a long time and just kept trying on my own, so good luck!!!!
