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.

I have horizontal white lines across the display of my LCD Tv, I've included more info in the details section below I have an Insignia model# NS-46L780A12 LCD TV MFG date July, 2011 , recently the display has been acting very strangely because the issue comes and goes consistently dependent to whether or not there's caption writing on the screen - examples being programming information , channel , time etc.....these info blocks are each in their own particular areas on the display , where this gets odd is when your watching live TV ,these info blocks are always filled in with whichever program that's on, the best description of this issue is from these individual blocks of written captions on the screen example - from the top , there will be a continuous vertical row of horizontal lines starting directly underneath said caption all the way to the bottom , this will happen consistently wherever there happens to be writing on the screens display, so you get multiple rows of these horizontal lines from top to bottom of the display and they'll stay there for the entire time you watch your show , some shows have more ,some less ,depending on the writing for that show , this is all on cable TV / live TV I guess you can call it , and when I use my Fire TV stick with certain apps , I'll get no vertical rows horizontal white lines on the display with the exception that I push the mute button or change the level of the volume and the lines start to want to show up and do partially just for a little while ,but almost as soon as the info on the screen disappears as far as mute/ no mute or the volume level , the vertical rows of horizontal lines go away , I should also say that in either case Fire TV stick or cable , these vertical rows of horizontal lines take a little time to develope all the way from where the caption lettering begin and same process for when they go away , it's not instant in either case , it can take up a couple of minutes for either process to happen , one other oddity I guess you could say , in watching a cable tv program where you may get let's say 5 vertical rows of horizontal lines top to bottom at the beginning of the process , if you happen to try to watch that show ,those individual vertical rows of horizontal lines of varying widths will eventually connect with each other horizontally across the display
