I have a Sanyo Flatscreen, the original remote was lost. Now when I turn on the TV the picture is to big to fit. HOW do I adjust it without the remote?


use the menu button on the side of the tv
that brings up the screen menu
using the channel and volume buttons move around until you find aspect ratio
find the one that fits the screen and press the menu button to save and exit
it could be a pixel setting so find pixel settings while the menu is on the scree and adjust to the correct pixel setting
there are plenty of remotes for tv units on e-bay
all you have to do is select one that is for sanyo led/lcd tv's and read the details to see it it works your model tv

How to I adjust the settings of a TV with a universal remote? I am using this TV as a computer monitor.


Firstly having tried TV's has a computer monitor, I personally wouldn't recommend one for that purpose. The screen appearance will never look as good as a proper monitor. Even a second-hand monitor will give you better picture quality, plus it will shut down when you power the system down.
Universal remotes have to be set up with the correct code for the make of TV and model. Not all codes will work all functions. Unless you actually know the correct code for your TV try all the other codes for the brand. Choose the best one.
Again the "Universal" on makes of remotes referrers to the fact you can get the basic functions for all makes of TV. It does not mean that it will work ALL functions on all TV's. The more expensive "universal" remotes will do more functions, but nothing will beat the "original" remote.

Blu ray shows the "Blu ray Disc" Logo on TV screen and then just show a black creen


Hi! and welcome to Fixya!

It looks like your tv is unable to handle the output video resolution from your bluray. The reason why you do not have picture on the tv screen after the bluray disc logo appears.

You can follow the instruction below to set the video resolution on your player to its lowest resolution:

1. Using your bluray remote control, press the following buttons in order... STOP button (press and release) ....HOME button (press and release)....POP UP/MENU button ( press and release )
Note: press the buttons in order with 1 second interval. Make sure tv and bluray are ON when you try this. If first attempt nothing happens, try this again.

2. When the home menu screen appears after doing the above instruction, you can set the video resolution again manually. Follow the instruction:
Using the BD remote control press HOME button > then go to SETUP > select screen settings > then change OUTPUT VIDEO RESOLUTION to Auto > change also 24P OUT to 1080P // set the BD-ROM 24P OUTPUT to Auto

The next time you turn on the bluray player you will have picture again.

Let me know if this works!

The pip got stuck using a universal remote..i cannot clear it no matter what button I use


If you can access the Menu options with your present universal remote, get into it, and surf thorugh picture adjustment and PIP adjustment screen, and set the PIP option to OFF. If you can't access the Menu option with your present remote control, there is no other way to do this without its original remote control.

Lost remote for emerson lc320em8 32 in. lcd tv, how can i adjust the screen mode to get full screen without the remote?


Hello
It is immpossible to set its screen resolution or screen size, without it remote control. Try to get one original remote control, from the authorised service center for Emerson at your town, or buy a universal remote control, which have setup codes for Emerson TV with it. OK.

I have a 19in Emerson Flat Screen TV that I am using as a PC Monitor and it isn't using the full screen. How do I fix it to use the whole screen?


You might not be able to. If the screen size doesn't adjust with the wide/view mode/picture format button on the television remote control you have to change the resolution on the pc. You right click on an empty spot on the desktop, choose properties, and then choose the settings tab. A lower resolution will cause the image to fill the screen but the icons get really big. The image isn't as refined. However you may be able to play around with it enough to find a good enough resolution and a view mode with the Emerson remote that will work out for you (a combination of the two).

Choose Screen Resolution For higher legibility of documents on screen, you can adjust the screen resolution of your monitor (for monitors that support more than one screen resolution option). The higher the number of pixels, the more information you can display on your screen and the smaller items appear. Lower screen resolution makes items appear larger and can benefit people with vision impairments. This procedure tells you how to adjust screen resolution through Display Properties in Control Panel.
