Question about Panasonic PV-DF2004 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

No display with DVD, VCR, or tuner

TV was working fine, then I accidentally hit the r-tune button on the remote. Now, no display w/tuner, DVD, or VCR. Display works fine in setup modes, and if I play a VCR (getting sound only) and go into video menu adjust, I get the picture while the settings are displayed. It's as if the TV went to an illegal channel and I can't clear it out of memory. Reset all unit memory functions does not help; it then comes up in CH AUTO SET PROCESSING (blue background), but when finished, screen then goes off (gray). I also am able to get blue screen back if I hold down the channel button (it then comes on showing the channels changing), but it then disappears once I get off the channel button. I think I need some kind of massive reset or maintenance mode access. Any suggestions?

Re: No display with DVD, VCR, or tuner

It sounds to me without knowing the model or type unit that you may need to unplug tv AND take batteries out of remote for a few seconds, replug and start over. Hope it helps

Installing a dvd. how do i swithch the signal from tv to dvd

THE COMBO WHEN YOU HIT PLAY SHOULD BE AUTOMATIC AND DISPLAY PICTURE AND SOUND ON THE SCREEN---THIS IS LISTED AS A TV-VCR COMBO SO IF dvd hooked to one of the rear inputs (some are also on front on some models) in the menu you select that input and should see the picture and hear the sound from the DVD.

Acessing Menu with universal remote

We used a One4All model URC3021BOO remote. We programmed BOTH the TV function and the DVD/vcr button with code 0807.  To access the menu PRESS TV then MENU button then DVD/VCR button will allow you to change menu functions using left and right and select buttons. *TV button will access Menu screen BUT NO menu functions. * DVD/VCR button will NOT access menu screen but WILL control menu functions if menu is already displayed. May work with other sharp products, or other universal remotes? These original (RRMCG1330PESA) remotes run 38.00+ to buy new so try this FIRST!

I am trying to reprogram the channels available on an Orion TV VCR/VHS combo without a remote and no menu button on this device's face for access

It is impossible to make an auto tune function to this TV without its remote control, as there is no Menu button on its front panel. OK.

When on button is pressed( on the remote or TV) all I get is snow. My other TV works, so I don't think it's the cable

If your other TVs work on the same antenna, and only this Emerson doesn't work with it, eiter your TVs tuner inside, or it tuning has some trouble. Check by put the set to autotune refering to its user manual. Check whether the cable socket is tight or not.
If these are correct, replace its tuner, [it is inside the circuit board], with same type and number. OK.

I have a EWC19T3 tv/vcr/dvd combo my ex-boyfriend threw the remote and shattered it. I have a philips/magnavox universal remote but I've tried all the codes listed for emerson (which is a lot) and none of...

Unfortunately, the remote you picked up may be incompatible with your current TV. (I found older universal remotes didn't work with my newest set that had a digital tuner. These were remotes that worked with ~20 year old tvs (analog only). Similarly a new remote might not work with an older TV. Then you get stuck with the result you have.) has a substitute remote that has all of the functions of the original remote:
This one will work.

Your TV has Select, volume and channel change buttons on the front of the TV. So a tedious way to deal with the problem is to move to the TV to change channels. The Volume controls are under the DVD tray. Select (toggle TV/VCR, DVD, and external input) is the first one on the left under the VCR cassette slot. The channel up/down is to the right of the Select.

I wish that I could be of more help.

(However, you might try the Philips Remote Code Finder: and select your country and click on the right arrow. Then find your remote model and see if you can get a single number for your TV. On the newer remotes I looked at, it only returned a code of 0917 for All Emerson devices.)

We watched a dvd movie and now when the tv is turned on the screen has words Video and Connect the A/v jacks we did not change anything

There's a button on most remotes to toggle between the TV and Video (for VCR or DVD). You've probably hit the TV/Video button on your remote control so it's on Video. On the Samsung TV, that button brings up the "Video - Connect the A/V jacks" message. Try hitting that button again.

No remote specific to Sharp combo to turn off closed captionning

on some models the menu button is on the front disguised as the volume up/down or channel up/down buttons. you have to push both up/down buttons on either one of these to bring up the menu.

Remote control for Sharp TV

Hold down the tamper proof button on your remote for up to ten seconds, until the tamper proof light will blink and light will go off. This will turn off the Tamper Proof button.

Let me know how it goes.

No sound,volume bar works

Sounds like it may be something you did. Have you checked to see if you accidentally put the sound on mute? Try hitting the mute button on the remote control. Also, if the TV has the option to turn of internal speakers (which you would likely find in the menu under audio settings if it does) make sure they are turned on. If these checks fail then we have an electronic problem to deal with.
