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

The remote that came with my daughters Spongebob TV was broken somehow....and I cannot seem to find any way in the menu on screen to change the input so she can watch DVD's or play her Vsmile? I have tried purchasing a universal remote a GE one if that helps...but I cannot seem to find the proper code either? Can anyone help by telling my how to either change the input manually, or what code I need for the universal remote? I still have the remote for the Spongebob DVD play that matches, but I dont see any buttons on there for changing the input either. Any help would be appreciated!

    It would have been so easy for them to inlcude the function as channel zero or a menu to switch the input on the tv menu itself. This is why china sucks.

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.

You did try the Emerson codes? Also try the Funai, Symphonic or Sylvania codes and see what happens.

Need to find a remote


I have found an exact match for you at this
website in which I used a couple of times:

I am unsure that this is the cheapest out there, but it is factory sealed, and will end your TV Remote search. Unless of course you go out and buy a Universal Remote that allows Emerson Programming..

Hope this helps and Happy Holidays..

What are you trying to do with the one that came with the set? Remember, you must have a good source for a signal such as antenna, cable, etc, in order for the set to work properly...accordianman
