Question about Emerson EWF2004 20" TV

Open Question

The TV seems to be stuck in some kind of diagnostic mode....

My grandmother picked up the remote and somehow mysteriously punched in a sequence of numbers or buttons that seems to have put the TV into some kind of diagnostic mode.

There are 4 numbers 2's one in each corner, there is no sound and the channels will not change. when I push the menu button on the TV the menu changes to various gibberish codes such as "DL/CH =" or BRT [349] + [129] or CNTRST {235} + {150-}
please tell me how to pull this out of diagnostic mode.

    The tv is an Emerson made in 2004
    model number EFW2004
    it's a 20"

    I've had this thing unplugged since I posted the problem, I will plug it in tonight to see if it's cleared up on it's own.

    This is "superjunkbox" the poster of the original thread.

SOURCE: Emerson Spongbob tv broken remote...cant change input?

Then the only way to reach your tv is through coaxial antenna port. So you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your red yellow and white cables (rca cables from a dvd, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me.

SOURCE: how to change the input

First, the bad news: Unfortunately, you are correct - the only button to change inputs is on the remote, which you no longer have.

Now, the good news: You can buy a universal remote, set it for your TV model, and have control of your inputs again. The first link below is for the URC R6, which is available at any Walmart for about 20 bucks. You can set it up for an Emerson TV, no problem. Here's the link for it:

Also, here is a link for the owners manual to your Emerson EWF2703, in case yours has gone missing with the remote:

Not a perfect solution, but it will work, and it will work just as fast as you can get to your local Walmart or equivalent.

Cheers

SOURCE: Can't find the input/video channel for my Emerson TV

universal remotes are tricky, if you have the pamphlet, often times there are several codes for each brand. you have to try all the emerson codes for your universal even tho the power, volume and channel functions may work with several emerson codes, some of these specialized buttons (like input) may only work on your TV with one specific code.

also, if there are any unlabeled buttons on the universal try them with each new emerson code.

SOURCE: remote turns on/ off tv but will not change tv channels

that particuar remote might not work for this television completely. that is not unusual at all. it will understand some commands but not all of them. i would advise using a little black remote with white buttons that sells for $5 at the dollar general store. i have yet to see a tv that it does not work with. please rate me it would be greatly appreciated.

How do i watch my tv with a broken remote


You can buy a universal remote and program it to work with your TV. I have always had good luck with RCA universal remotes. You can also program the remote to run your cable/sat box and your DVD/blue ray player. You could also go to the web site of the company that made the TV and order a new remote. This would be more expensive but the remote would run all the funcitions while the universal may not.

Devant ER 31951D remote


Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. 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. Pull up older posts. If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician.
