What channel does the tv need to be on to operate the dvd player? The dvd player comes on but it doesn't recognize the button commands on the tv-do no have the remote.

channel 3 or 4. if that doesnt work switch the input on the tv. the input button might be labelled input/source/tv-video or av. if you arent getting a pic while the dvd player is playing look at the back of the tv and see where the cable from the dvd player is going into the tv. it is labelled what input it should be on. ex: video 1, etc. hope this helps.

You will have to disconnect the TV from the AC outlet for a few seconds(10-20) then reconnect the TV and press power. You should get the start up menu after you get a picture. What you have to do is use the vol up/dn , chnl up/dn keys to select the autoprogram setting after chosing from cable or antenna signal. the enter key should be one of the DVD keys either play or stop or some other key, you'll have to experiment a little with it. There is an owners manual available at in case you need it, but I am posting a brief description stated in the manual on how to do this.

Most HDTVs have ATSC, QAM and NTSC (analog) tuners. It sounds like yours does not have an NTSC (analog) tuner. QAM tuners only pick up digital cable channels. You may need to switch to your cable company's digital service if your not already on it. Call your cable company for further info

Quasar VV-1302: Cannot Program Cable Channels

If you let it autoprogram and all you get is channel 103. Move the TV back to the old connection and see if it autoprograms all the channels there. If that works ok then you have a problem with the cabe line that only has channel 103.

I lost my remote and only need it to set the TV to channel 3 for cable. Is there any way to do this manually?

If you are able to access menu and channel setup, you can go into autoprogram and it will scan all available channels and store them.
Otherwise you can get a cheap universal or even original replacement remote

I have the 13 inch and...

If you get channels 2 to 13 nice and clear but the rest are snowy, it means that the TV is set to the broadcast channels, which means that for the channels above 13 it is tuning in the old-fashioned UHF channels. If the TV is set to the cable mode then it tunes in cable channels above 13. To do this, enter the menu and navigate to the tuner settings, set the tuner to standard cable and then do the autoprogram, and the tuner's memory will be set for your cable system.

Program timer light blinking

The timer light blinks when the AC power has been disconnected and the clock is not set. This is how the set warns you that it can no longer do timer recordings. Setting the clock and doing an autoprogram will fix it, but both the remote and the remote receiver must be working. If the original remote is not damaged and has good batteries in it but does not work on that set and you cannot get any other universal remote to work, then the remote receiver (the IR "eye") inside the set has failed and needs to be replaced. I have seen many of those little receivers failing recently. If you do not have experience changing electronic parts on small PC boards then have a qualified tech change it for you.

Go back in the menu, find (input source) or (tuner) then click the cursor right side of the menu button or the left to move the (TV) to (CATV), after you bring it up then move cursor arrow up or down to page (AUTOPROGRAM) then tap the cursor arrow right of the menu button to start the CATV channels to be found , be sure you have the cable connected to the TV. Once the channels have been found, tap (EXIT) or (STATUS) button on remote to get out of the menu and close the page, or just turn set off and back on again.

Can receive only channels 1 thru 27 although connected to cable with 70 channels.

First you need to check if your set is in the cable mode and not antena mode,if the set is in cable make sure is in the standard cable mode and not another type of cable like HRC,if it is change it and try the autoprogram to set the available channels.I hope it helps.
