Question about Sony RMT-V501E Remote Control

1 Answer

Can't change channels.

I have a 20 year old sony TV that is set to channel 0 because all the other channels were appearantly deleted from the TV's memory. I can't "add channels" because I don't own a remote with an "enter" button. (not sure they make them anymore either). I use to have to press the number buttons first coresponding to the channel I wanted then press"enter" to get the TV to go to that channel. Then it can be added by pressing the add button. Is there any other way to add channels?

    in the menu there is an option for cable or antenna, most of the time anyway. In the cable mode you can choose auto program and it will scroll through all available channels and and afterward you can just use the channel up or down to scroll through avail channels. Usually auto program is avail for both cable and ant. Not sure about anything older than ten years. usually on older sets and remotes u have to use the menu button as as return or enter and volume and and or channels to scroll through.

you can also buy a universal remote and it might help you. keep in mind, the remotes don't always have the right buttons labeled, so sometimes you have to try all of them first before finding the right button to bring up the setup menu.

I have a Sanyo tv ( model #DS19330 ) and using a Sony remote to operate it. I am trying to restore channels 14-69 by scrolling through the channels with the remote. I can punch all channels in by...


It sounds like that the TV was set to skip certain channels. You need to rescan for channels or manually edit the channel list. To manually add channels, press Menu on the TV (or the equivalent key on the Sony remote if you found a code that works). Then use the Up/Down arrows (channel change keys) to select Ch Scan Memory + . Then enter the number of the channel (numerically or up and down arrows). Press + (volume + key) to change the setting from Deleted to Added or vice versa. Since you do not have the original remote, I'm not sure if the Sony remote will match the Reset key of the original remote. Unfortunately without that key being pressed twice, you can't reset the entire channel list and cause the channel search to begin automatically.

The manual for the DS19330 TV is here: http://www.sanyotv.com/DS19330%20%28ESF%29%203764--.pdf . (I'm assuming you haven't recently added cable after only receiving only OTA signals. If you have changed inputs like that, you need to go through the menu and change the source.) Menu > Cable or Air .

I hope this helps.

Unlockin all the channels


In order to get all the channels u have to have the original remote or a universal remote that has a menu button, an enter button, and directional pad (the directional pad cannot control the volume and channels it must be for navigating). push and hold the menu button, the menu will appear then disappear, once it disappears release the button and enter 9876 then press enter. a different menu will appear and it will b three black lines, one at the top of the screen, one in the middle and one at bottom. the middle line has 3 sections the first part is the item number the second part is the description and the last part is the on/off switch using either a 0 or 1. push down on the directional pad until u get to the 00 factory settings 0 and change the 0 to a 1 with the right button on the directional pad. then scroll up to 20 channel lock 0 (i think its 20, it may be like 22 but it is in the twenties for sure) and change the 0 to a 1. then go back down to the 00 factory settings and change the 1 back to 0 then turn the tv off. when u turn the tv back on it will either automatically ask u to auto tune or u will have to go to auto program to program the channels. there are like 80 different menu items, be sure not to mess with any other ones unless u know what ur doing, u could cause ur tv not to function properly or even be able to turn on.

this problem frustrated me greatly and im very happy to help whoever i can with the solution

Sony 37" Flat Panel Bravia--cant change from channel 2?


Hello,

On the original Sony remote control, try typing in a channel manually. Try pressing the numbers "0-4" or "0-5," and waiting for a moment. If the channel changes, then the TV needs to be autoprogrammed. Using the SOny remote control, go into the MENU (or HOME on some Sony remotes), and look for the initial setup screen. It will walk you through the process. The process is also in the original users manual, available on the www.SONY.com website.

Hope this helps you....

20 year old Quasar colour TV (no remote)


That is because the switches of the front panel buttons are stuck or defective.

Try first unplugging power for ten minutes, this probably wont work.

To fix this the TV must be taken apart from an expert, and front panel replaced.

You can enquiry here for parts.

What you can do at home, is getting a replacement remote and using TV with a remote, or buying a freeview box, and watching and changing channels through the box.

You can get a replacement remote here: Replacement Remote Control orReplacement Remotes

My suggestion, if it is supported in your area, get a set top box with 30 channels : Freeview - digital TV from Argos.

Sounds like it lost programing, if it has an "auto program" feature try that, or some older models need it to be done manualy and have a "add/erase" feature, instructions for that should be in your owner's manual.

Delay with channel surfing


Two things I would check before contacting JVC. In the on screen menu does it have a setting under tuner controls to disable AFC? It sounds like the tuner is seeking the proper channel frequency before it locks it in and displays a picture. If there is no such setting, then I would try a channel autoprogram in the cable mode. I'm assuming you have no cable or satellite TV box hooked up to the set. JVC is usually a pretty good brand name.
