Hey Z,

I believe the model # is RC-278 and is supposed to be the remote that comes with the TV. FYI - This TV operates best as a "Stand-alone" TV. As in the remote itself is not designed to work like a "Universal" remote and you may have issues in the future trying to hook up various other types of equipment (ie. DVD, Tuner, etc..)

Hope this helps!! Happy Holidays..

I am no longer able to turn my tv on. The red standby light is on but will not turn to green with either the remote or power button on tv

The most common issue with these TV's are that the power supply for the TV are going bad. If you know a little about electronics and can soldier pretty good, you might be able to save this TV. Also if you dont tell me what kind of TV it is, i cant walk you through anything. Is it an LCD, Plasma? Model number?

Normally TV's don't switch from analogue to digital signals in quite that distinction. The 'Input' or 'Source' or 'Video Source' buttons usually cycle through the different kinds of input the TV has ports for. In most cases theres a Component, Composite, HDMI, DVI or VGA (or both sometimes), and S-Video.

They've probably changed the screen ratio from 4:3 to 16:9, or vice-versa. You didn't state which model of TV you have so I'm not sure which buttons you have on your remote, but there should be a button on your remote with "SCREEN MODE" or "SIZE" written on it. If you have this button try pressing it slowly but repeatedly until the picture size returns to normal or it says "AUTO".

If you don't have this button or can't get it to work, please post back with your TV model number and I will supply the correct instructions for returning your picture to the correct size.
