After reading a similar issue on fixya about another person having a similar problem and holding down the setup button for 10 seconds, I tried it on my television (although I don't have a setup only a menu button) and it worked. Thanks.

Changing inputs on hitachi tv 46w500 with out a remote


The Hitachi 46W500 has an Input button on the front of the TV. (This is the second button from the right. The right-most button is the Menu Button.) You should be able to press this repeatedly to switch between inputs.

If the Front Panel Lock is engaged, you need a remote to unlock this. (Only the Power button works when the FPL is engaged.) A universal remote which has a code that matches that needed to get the Menu button to work will do the job.

I hope this helps.

How to change input on tv without a remote


Which TV do you have? Some will have an Input or Source button on the front panel. A few will have an option to change the source from the menu. Both of these options require the front panel lock to be inactive.

A few older TVs allowed you to find the A/V input by pressing Channel Down on the front panel buttons until you passed channel 2 (or Channel Up until you nearly reached Channel 2). This option wouldn't work if the A/V inputs had been deleted when someone minimized going through unused channels.

If the Source or Input button was only available on the remote, you will need a universal remote that includes this feature. These cost a bit more than the lowest end remotes. Then you will have to try all of the codes to find the one that makes the Source button work with your TV. (Several codes may work for On/Off but not the change input.) The Universal remotes that can be programmed from a computer (USB connection) will be the easiest to set up. Remotes.com may have a replacement original or substitute remote for your TV that should work for all of the TV functions.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the TV make and model for specific options for your particular TV.

We lost the remote and we are trying to hook up our Wii to the front panel box. How do we change the input to the front panel without the remote


On the side of the TV there are a set of buttons. An Input button is next to the Menu button and will let you access the different sources connected to the TV. For the front panel input, look for the source labeled Front. (There are also volume control and channel +/- buttons.) The button order is Input, Menu, Vol -, Vol +, Ch -, Ch +.

If you want, you can get a substitute remote that is guaranteed to match the original remote's features here: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=32V524T&uuid=12935850039140 .

I hope this wants.

Thats a bad button on the front keypad of the tv . The remote does not work because the tv micro sees a button pressed all the time and never listens to the IR reciever . If you pull the front speaker grill off you will find connector ZF just below the keypad or just inside the access panel. If you do remove that panel don't touch anything else.Just follow the wires down from the keypad to connector ZF. Connector ZF is inline with the wires to the front keypad. Unplug it . Then remote will work like normal. Use it like that or have the front keypad buttons replaced.

I saw your response to a question about the Toshiba 32A33 TV ...


Definitely, there is some keypad failure. There is a continuous contact anyone of the key. Since key is contiunuosly giving command to the processor Remote function is automatically cutoff. My simle Tips to find out key failure. Good key give "Tick" sound when you press the key softly. The sound is very very low, you have to observe carefully. Otherwise blindly change all the front panel key. Cost is very very low. When the keypad problem is solved, remote will function automatically.
