JVC television-lost old remote-have universal /can't add channels
I have a JVC television in my bedroom which I know has all the cable channels (up to 50 channels) because I used to have another TV there and was able to get a lot of channels. Now with this old JVC tv, I only get about 5 channels. I have a universal remote control for this. help!

I don't have an answer for your question.
However, I do have a suggestion. You can hook up a vcr to your tv, then put the tv on channel 3 or 4 (whichever the vcr is set for) and change the channels through your vcr. You have to have the cable go first to your vcr and then out to the tv.

Your problem is stuck keys in your T.V. It usually just needs cleaning, BUT it is hard to clean, because you gonna have to open up the whole TV. I advice you just buy a new remote from JVC or just buy a "Universal Remote".
The replacement for model indicated is rather expensive. What you will find is all Hitachi remotes made from 1999 to date will operate that set.
2-12 means the set is in the Air band and not the cable band. A lot of these remotes are readily available on EBAY and other places, I have several Hitachi remotes and all codes for all their regular tvs, projection, LCD, and Plasma use the same codes.
All you need is a remote that will go into the menu and allow you to select Cable and then go and do auto program.
I have a Hitachi remote for a 1991 projection set and it works on all later sets, only a few features are missing for certain models.
It is either this or try a universal, but I suspect a Universal will not do what you want.
Do you mean no power or no cable?If you mean no cable,did you do a channel autosearch?Is it new or used?Even if it is 5 years old,an autosearch should pick up some digital channels.If it does not have the original remote,you will have to use the menu button on the TV to access the channel search.If none of these options work,it is simply a large paperweight.Universal remotes do not give menu access.Let me know how you make out.Just make a comment to this post and I will get a notice that you replied. Good luck! Greg
First you want to go press the menu button on the front of the tv. Second, choose channel set. Third, choose add/delete and manually preset each channel. You can try just adding channel 3 if you have cable. This will turn the tv back on and out of game mode...
some older tv's only go up to so many channels.you may not even need a remote to set up cable tv. if you are going to use a cable box on this tv, put the tv on channel 3.if not, look in front of the tv for a little door. behind it maybe knobs or buttons that can program the channels 1 at a time [+= add - = erase. there also maybe a switch for different cable types [hrc,std, etc]
hope this helps
Press (on your regular remote for your satellite) the t.v. button, then press info, this worked for me and I tried everything. another viewer posted this solution and it worked great! this is not the original remote, it is the satellite remote.
