After programming my new universal remote, the tv keeps changing chanels! wont stop!
So the old remote finally stopped working, and i bought a GE universal remote. Now the tv as soon as you turn it on, keeps changing channels. Im not even holding the remote in my hand. in fact, the tv keeps changing channels even when the remote is in the other room! HELP!
things ive tried:
1.unplugging the tv for more than 24 hrs, hoping it would "de-program" itself
2. pressing "menu"
3. pressing channel up and channel down to make it go the other way, didnt stop!
4. removing the batteries from the possesed by -satan-remote!
Re: after programming my new universal remote, the tv...
You need to program your remote control. take the battaries out. and maually turn the tv on. then hit the source you want to view. for example, I want to control the tv set. I push, code search and hold it then push the source button and then release the source button and then release the code search button. now, aim at the tv and then keep pressing power button till it goes off. when the tv is off, hit return or set or something like that.( every remote has different calling for it but still the same function) it should work. try it and let me know.

I have this same TV and the input cannot be changed with the remote control. Some older universal remote controls can be used with TV. With the newer remoter controls the GE codes do not work and one must use the code scan search and hope that one of the other generic TV codes works (they usually don't). The motorola DRC800 universal remote that comes with some cableboxs will work with this TV when performing the universal code search. Good Luck. I'm junking this old TV and getting a new one as soon as I can afford it. (I bought new in 1994).
It depends on the TV a bit. Which model of Broksonic TV do you have? Do you have the original remote? (remotes.com has replacement remotes for many TVs.) Look at the TV (or the original remote) for a menu or channel add subtract option. (The TV is probably programmed to skip the channels that didn't have a signal in the past so you need to reprogram this.) If the TV is a really simple TV (with just the channel and volume controls on the TV), you'll need the original or a direct substitute remote (or a higher end programmable remote). Most basic universal remotes will control power, channel and volume but not the reprogram channels option (in my experience). If you can program the add/remove channels, press 60 on the remote, wait for the TV to go to that channel and then press the Add Channel button. Alternately, with the satellite receiver on, press the combination to search all channels and program the skip to channels with signal.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (I had a really old Emerson TV; when the original remote started to fail, the cheap universal remote didn't handle the channel programming. Fortunately, the original remote would usually still work for that.)
Come on, lets try to solve this. Take the batteries out of the remote so it can't interfere and try changing the channels and volume with the buttons on the tv. If this works then someone has spillled something onto the remote and gummed it all out. You simply need to take the remote apart and clean it out. If the buttons on the tv do th same as the remote did then yes, take it back.
