Alright...I own a Symphonic 32'' TV......I'm no expert on this so I'm not gonna try and pretend I am......I lost the remote to the TV a while ago....I am currently using an RCA universal remote control....my cable runs through A/V jacks therefore needs an input channel....(ie:video1,2, so on) but my remote wont let me go to the input channels stating they do not exist...before when I operated this TV they worked fine
Just wondering if there is a way to fix this

Re: no input channels
Universal remote control are normally programmed for basic functions, ie. chennel up down, volume up down, numbers, etc.
This is even written in the manual that they do not guarantee that all functionality can be used.
Here are your options:
1. Try all the codes that match your TV, there is a slim chance that the other code have the functionality that you need.
2. Buy the original model remote control.
3. If you know of someone that have the same TV, buy a universal remote control with 'learning' function and copy the signal from the original remote control.
I have the same problems before. Now I use my Casio wrist remote control to copy the special functions such as A/V so that even if the original remote control is lost, I can still use these functionality

The input from the Sega wont be on any channel number - you need to select the correct input for the Sega using the "INPUT SELECT" button on the Symphonic remote control supplied with the TV. Switch on the TV the Sega, then press this button repeatedly until you can see the picture from the Sega.
- If you are using the sockets on the BACK of the TV, the correct input is "VIDEO 1"
- If you are using the sockets on the FRONT of the TV, the correct input is "VIDEO 2". You can also switch to the "VIDEO 2" input by pressing the "GAME" button on the Symphonic remote - if you still have it.
If you don't have the Symphonic remote, look for a button marked "INPUT" or "SOURCE" if you are using a universal remote.
If you don't have any remote for the TV, you will only be able to use the sockets on the front of the TV. You will then need to switch to "GAME MODE" by using the buttons on the front of the TV:
1. Switch ON the TV and the Sega; 2. Press the MENU button; 3. Press the VOLUME UP button to open the PICTURE MENU; 4. Highlight GAME MODE using the CHANNEL UP/DOWN buttons; 5. Set GAME MODE to "ON" using the VOLUME UP/DOWN buttons; 6. Press MENU again to close the menu
You should now be able to see the picture from the Sega. If not, check you have correctly connected the Sega to the TV. When you have finished using the Sega you will need to use the method above to switch game mode off again.
Hopefully, I've covered every possible angle. If you have a different Symphonic TV model from the one listed above (ST420FF), the method should be similar, but if you have any difficulty, please post back for further assistance.
Yes go to menu with the buttons on your TV and go to CATV sometime u can press your channel button until your channels run out and if u keep pressing the channel button it will go into game mode or in other words switch to the RCA jacks in front of your TV
