If the regular television remote is the one that came with the set, try new batteries. If it still doesn't operate the TV, try the cable remote again after making sure you have properly set it for your brand of TV. If after all that the remotes still don't work the set, the remote sensor in the TV has probably gone bad. It's a part that can be replaced, although I can't give you any precise cost. A repair call to replace it would have been between $75 and $100 when I was a road technician, but that's been several years now.

I'm going from cable to an antenna, and the remote will not work, I've put in new batteries, any help would be appreciated. I can turn on the tv without it but cannot do anything else.


If your going to a regular antenna, you have to use the tv remote to operate the tv. unless you have a cable box. Sorry if I did not understand the problem. God-Bless!

Why won't television turn on with remote control?


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience.

My remote will not operate my tv ?


you may need to change the remote code to the one for your model tv, or replace the batteries. instructions for this should be in the manual that cam with the remote.

Tv code search


I can give you these. You should try them until one works hopefully. 0506, 0311, 0612, 0002, 0428, 0802, 0412, 0619. Sometime the universal remotes will not operate everything so be sure to try the power on/off and the volume and try changing channels before assuming the code is wrong. One of these should work...

Lost remote


This is a common problem and one thing I dearly hate about TV's.

Unless your TV has more than just volume and channel buttons then you will be unable to change from cable to regular TV.

My recommendation is that you go out and buy a Universal remote cost anywhere from $ 8-15 dollars cheapest.Most of them will come with a manual including the codes needed to program them.

Menu feature on pltv-3750 is not functioning on dtv source.


ATSC is not a cable tuner, it is for antenna only. Qam tuner is for HD cable. If you dont have a QAM tuner you need a cable box.

I have a 2004 Toshiba color TV 27".


simply look up the codes or contact your cable company for the toshiba tv codes to input into the cable remote. you may also be able to operate the cable box via the TV remote if the correct codes from the tv owners manual are entered.

Can't get channels I just got cable


Call your cable company! Whoever installed your cable did not set up your remote or give you one of their remotes. Most of the time your tv must be set on channel 3 or 4 and your tv has to be set to cable. Then you can use your remote or the cable company's remote.

REMOTE OPERATION


Looks like a common frequency and coding problem. Try to keep the TV and Cable box far away and try the remote. If it works, then, escalate to Cable operator for providing a new box with remote or ask for a different brand of cable box.

Tv/remote input problems


Try plugging your cable box in using a/v cables (red,white,yellow) and see if you have a picture on a different input from the box. If so, go into your general settings in the box and change the output channel to 4 instead of 3. Then try your TV on 4 and see if your picture comes in. I have seen TV tuners go out on just one channel before.
