    I purchased a Sylvania television at a yard sale but it had no remote. I am unable to change the inputs as there is no option in the menus to do so. Several Universal remotes were tried with no luck. (Perhaps the receiver is bad as I can't imagine why a "universal" wouldn't work on a major brand like Sylvania.) Changing the channel to below 2 does not roll through the front or rear AV inputs. Autoprogramming even with a signal coming from a DVD player into the A/V jacks doesn't detect the A/V channel. About the only thing left to try is an adapter to the coax jack that can be set for channel 2 or 3 if such a thing even exists anymore. Pity; it has a great picture and doesn't appear to be very old! Looks like no video games or DVD's on this one! (I guess Al Bundy was right, "Yard sales are where idiots sell junk to bigger idiots.")

If you have lost the remote, go to any electronics store and buy a universal one. I have programmed many generic remote controls, and they all work fine for adjusting the video inputs. Not all television sets allow their video inputs to be switched without the remote. Most likely you will have to buy a replacement.

How do I change video input from cable/ant to video 1 or video 2 on my Symphonicwf27f4 27in Flat panel TV so i can watch my rca home theater system dvd player?

You should have a remote control to select its inputs. It can be original or a universal remote control. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability. Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the sites Check this site too.
Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops. Visit some online sites too, which deals with electronic spare parts.

How do i change from the tv mode to video without a remote

On the control panel of your television you will find the input button, depending on the type of hook-up you are using for your video connection to the television.You must switch the modes with the onscreen display until you find your type of connection. You must turn on your video devise to have a signal input. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Is There a way to go to video/input without a remote.

My answer will be generic.

With many of these TV sets the original factory remote is required to change the input mode of the set, or to access any of the user menus.

On some models of sets, putting the channel selection down to below channel 2, puts the TV in to the external input modes.

Cannot return to TV from DVD play


If you have a Directv receiver, and you have to be on channel 3 on the TV to watch it, then we have to get you off the video input. On a Directv remote, there should be a button toward the top left hand side that says "TV input." Try pressing this first. If that doesn't work, then look for the button on the Insignia TV remote control that says "tv/video," "source," "input," or something along those lines. Press it (some TV's make you press it several times to change the input). Just make sure that your Directv receiver is on before you start pushing buttons.

Give that a shot.

Can't play dvd player on JVC tv; I don't have a JVC remote.

I hooked up a Pioneer DVD player to my TV and when I play a DVD the volume cannot be controlled by the TV. It just plays at one level and on the louder side. When I'm watching regular TV and the DVD player is on and playing a disc I start to hear the DVD soundtrack at the same time as the whatever I'm watching on TV. I should not be able to hear anything until I switch over to Video 1. Any suggestions?

Changing from 480i to 720p on VIzio VX37 with factory issued remote

If you use the hdmi input from your cable box and select either the HDMI1 or HDMI2 input setting it should automatically change based on the channel transmission resolution.

All this is currently controlled by the cable providers set top boxes, and depends on whether you have purchse the Hi-Def programming packages.

Hope this helps you.

RCR4258 Remote control

Sometimes these universal remotes will not do every function on your set . Best thing to do would be to take universal back and go to to get the exact remote . You'll never have to worry about recoding your remote. Good luck
