Question about Emerson TC2556D TV

1 Answer

Television not getting all of the channels

I have an Emerson TC 2556D television that I had picked up at yard sale, with no remote. We have cable hooked to it; however, it only gets a few of the channels that are available. The picture is wonderful on the channels that we do get.

I hate to tell you this but you cannot add channels without an original replacement remote, and that costs about 40 bucks here This remote if you notice has an add, delete,and the auto buttons. A universal will not have these functions on it. Good Luck.

Can I make my own antenna for my Emerson TV to pick up analog channels?

Of course, analog channels are being phased out (or have already been phased out) & are being repurposed for use in other technology. This could make contriving such a device accessory unethical & possibly illegal.

As far as receiving free over-the-air digital television channels is concerned, it would be better to start the effort aequipped with information as to what is available in your local viewing area. HDTV Pub ( could help you with that.

If you have the technology for watching digital television channels, digital channel television antennae are availabe in a number of stores.

I just purchased a new RCA 32 inch w/ DVD. When starting up it asks if you will use Cable or Air. I have Dish Satellite and picked air. I only get one channel and if I try to go up or down channels I get a...

You should not have had to choose cable or air. When you have satellite it is considered the same thing as cable. Air is over the air rabbit ears antenna free programming. When you are connecting a satellite receiver you only have to turn to channel 3 or pick the correct av, component or hdmi input. Oh you must be connecting more than one television to the same satellite receiver. When that is the case tv #2 usually has to be set on a different channel and the satellite tv company tells you which channel. You still use the satellite remote to change channels and leave this television on one channel at all times. This television is good enough for its own hd satellite receiver connected with component cables or an hdmi cable though in order for you to see its full potential for displaying hd programs.

I have timewarner basic cable and would like to view the hd channels such as 5.1 or 5-1. how to I get there, the remote has no . or -?

go to the options with the remote on your tv, then do a channel scan. it will scan for any channels you are picking up. if you have basic cable you will only have a few HD channels. if you have a cable box then the cable box should show you what channels are HD

I got the tv at a yard sale and it doesnt have the remote and I cannot get it to the aux channel. It is not below channel 2 nor is it 23 or 4

The only way you can do it is maybe with a universal remote. There is no other way. Sometimes you may find an exact remote control for your TV at a local TV repair shop. Somtimes a customer who never picked up their TV or never was able to fix would keep the remote so they can sell them for a few bucks.

Is the emerson ewl20s5 digitally compatible

I looked up the specs for your TV. It says nothing about a digital tuner at all. I believe you must get a box from your cable provider. I'm sure that they want to keep you around, so they should give you a cable box for free.

I need help programming a TV

If holding down both volume buttons won't let you into the menu you may need the original remote. Call the phone number on the set. They may still have it available.
