Hanspree TV chgs channel w/ cable remote but cant turn on/off
My new 15" Hanspree TV won't turn on/off or adjust the volume via our cable remote. I can change channels perfectly well. This is not a problem on any of our other TVs. I do see people have issues with remotes in general because they say Hanspree doesn't have a sky code... but I've never had to program my cable remote before! And the channels do change! Is this the same issue? Something else? Fixable?
Any ideas very appreciated!
Re: Hanspree TV chgs channel w/ cable remote but cant...
Thanks but I no longer require assistance. I tried to remove my post but it does not seem possible. I no longer need assistance because I sent the TV back. There is no solution as there is no universal remote code --- ridiculous for a brand new TV set that most people are probably going to want to use with cable!

Connect the TV to external antenna or cable and do the following ot autoscan channels. If it autoscans, and doesn't store any stations in its memory, the memory IC has damaged and should be replaced with same type and number. Wait till autoscan completes and see whether the first channel receve will comes displayed or not. It will take some time to complete. the procedure is:
From Menu Press Vol [+/-] then Channel [UP/DOWN] buttons to find CHANNEL AUTOSCAN.
Press Volume [+/-] button, channels will be scaned automatically. OK
your rca does it have a button for cable. then you can program your tv remote to work with the cable box. go to the manual and try all the codes for rca tv. if this does not work then you have to try it manually. have them give you a different adapter. it might be in the box or remote.
If your connecting the likes of a DVD player, Virgin, Sky etc to your Tv via a scart. Then these should turn your tv onto the required Av channel automatically as a scart send power to the Tv.
Just make sure that you have everything connected up first of all before you turn the power on. Then what I would suggest you do is turn the TV on first then turn the DVD, Cable, Sky on after the tv is already on this should then change to the AV your appliance is connected to.
Hope This helps you out. Please Leave a thumbs up if this clarify things for you.
