Question about RCA Universal Remote 3 Device Remote Control

Input button on my new universal remote doesnt work

The dvd and tv are correctly hooked up, and the old remote is able to change the input (on my tv) to video, but my new rca remote only flashes the channel and time ("display") when i push "input," it does not switch to any video mode. Does this indicate there is something wrong with the remote?

You'll have to try a new code for your TV.

http://66.77.167.109/rcaaccessories/RcaaccessoriesController.do?ACTION_TYPE_ID=ACTION_TYPE_CATEGORY&ACTION_CATEGORY_ID=STR_CATEGORY_UNIVERSAL_REMOTES

Click the remote code finder link on the left towards the bottom of the page.

Select your remote and device (TV in this case) from the dropdowns.

Scroll down the results page to your brand of TV and try all the codes until you find the one that works with all the functions you want.

Best of luck!

What channel on the hci tv can I view my dvd I hooked the red yellow and white jacks into the back of tv but cannot find a channel to view the dvd


You probably need to find a Source or Input button or menu item. Change the source from TV (if that is your current source) to A/V (or composite video). Depending on the model, there may be a source/input button on the TV. There will always be a sourc/input button on the original remote. If you are using a universal remote, you may need to try a different code to get the function to work.

On a few TVs, you can find this in one of the sub-menus. However not all TVs let you change the source in the Menu system.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of the HCI TV and whether you have the original remote or a universal remote to control the TV if you would like me to find the specific information for your TV.

(For example, the HCI RM22 III remote has the input button on the left side just below the power button.)

I'm trying to hook up my Panasonic DVD player (model DVD-S29) to a Comcast cable box but have not been successful. My DVD player only has Audio Out connections, with no audio in connections. I...


the cable in should go to the box and cable out from the box to the TV.These should all be coaxial cables correct?Hook up the DVD player to the TV using the red,white,and yellow cables is also correct.In order to watch a DVD,you have to use the input select button on the remote for the TV ONLY to change inputs.If you have a universal remote for the TV and not the original factory remote provided with the TV,you need to use the menu button located on the outside of the TV.I just searched on my flat screen and was unable to find an input select through the menu button.It may not be possible on this TV if you do not have the original remote and if you own a universal.My universal for one of my older TV's is about 7 years old so I do not know if newer ones have an input select option.If they do not,it is most likely due to patents and royalty payments which these cheap remote makers do not want to pay.Anyhow,let me know if this helps.Just comment here and i will get an auto link to your comments.Good luck!

Old TV and old DVD player


Make sure your TV is "tuned" to the proper input. To change the input, change the TVs channel below 02, find the "input" dialoge on the tv's menu, or press the "input" or "video" button on the TV or Remote.

Repairing a 20 year old VCR (By chance a BetaMax?) is not worth your time. Replace it with a $60 DVD/VHS combo unit.

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.

I have this same TV. The DVD player is either hooked up to the video or s-video input. Go to the Menu (either through the remote or from the front of the TV) and select the Setup option. Go to the part where it asks if you want to use a DVD player. Select yes. Then select Video Input. Exit the Setup. When you hit the DVD button, it will switch to the Video input. The second step is to go into the Menu and select Channel, then go to Video Input Source. From there, select which input you are using for your DVD player, the S-Video or the standard Video (yellow composite cable).

The input button


On some sets you can use the menu button to enter the menu and navigate to the page which shows what input is currently selected and change it there. If your set does not have that option, then you will need the remote to do it. I have found that on some universal remotes, the TV/VCR button switches the inputs on the TV when the remote is in the TV mode. If that button does not work on your remote for your set, and you have tried all possible codes for JVC TVs, then the only way to switch inputs is to invest a few dollars more and get an original remote from JVC or have the set repaired so that the input button on the TV functions again.

Cant get to input. front or back


A lot of universal remotes will not work some tv's. It sounds like you may have to replace the remote sensor within the tv.
