Question about Emerson SpongeBob SquarePants TV

1 Answer

My kid's Spongebob TV SB315 model is all screwed up!! I try to hook up a dvd to it and can't watch anything!

Well first of all, my husband hooked up a portable dvd player to it because the one we had broke. It was fine yesterday, until last night I cam in the room and my kids had messed with it. So for some reason the portable dvd player remote(Polaroid) works on the Spongebob tv. Everytime I would hit 'enter' it would take me to a listof options first was ATV 2, DVD, AUTO, PMN-1, decoder 266 and alot of other things I don't remember. I think my husband screwed all those settings up and I did too because I tried to mess with it to. Well now I can't even go back to that menu option. So therefore they can't watch a movie. If anyone can give me advice I would sure appreciate it. It would be great if they could tell me what's supposed to be off and what number are the settings suppose to be at. 0-7.

I believe that what you are watching are the responses of the portable DVD player on screen menu. How about just trying to get the tv to work for now, then try the DVD again?...accordianman

I need to know how to unlock the parental lock on my daughter's Spongebob television model number sb305

Either in the owner manual (if lost Google the model number with "manual" to try to locate one) are the instructions for this.

A harder way is call Emerson and have them step you thru the process.

What channel do i put for input for model number SB315

Needs to be on channel 3. Make sure you have good input with video going and do a channel scan. It will stop on 3 and memorize the channel.

No sound

There are only two easy possible reasons:

1) IF it has a earphone jack of some kind it may be damaged or bad.

2) Place your ear to the speaker and turn the sound all the way up to see if you hear anything.

If not a problem with a earphone jack or a bad speaker it will not be economical to repair---for this size set better to just replace it.

I have a Spongebob tv/dvd player. When trying to

I looked through the manual and didn't see anything either. I assume that you are hitting the TV/DVD button and setting it to DVD when you want to use the DVD. Does the remote do anything besides turn the TV on (change channels, etc.)? Hope this helps and good luck!

Spongebob tv

You can only have one item plugged in to the ave jack at one time. Seems silly for a tv with two sets of av ins, but i ran in to the same problem and this works. Just unplug the dvd player or the game console.

No picture with DVD input

Your going to need the original remote to switch back to AV input in the menu. It should explain in the owners manual how this is done. If you do not have that or cannot find the manual go to a search engine and look up emersom dowmloads it will show up as I think PS dont forget to rate this.
