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 want to go to channel 3 so i can go on cable , but the remote doesnt let me !


Hello; All TV's made in the last 20 years are computer controlled. The TV wants you to do a "scan ", so it can MEMORIZE all active channels. IF you are connecting your set to a cable BOX or OTHER, the set can only SEE the Channel 3 output from the boxes. No scan will work when doing this! In this case don't expect to be able to use the channel UP or Down keys on the set or remote, because the set does not know any channels due to no memory of a scan. You can, however key in the channel # and the set should go to that channel, unless the set is defective. John

I need to know how to program it to my sony television


To programe the remote you will have to do a code search. Here is how below.

Lets you search for a code for a specific Brand within
the Code Library for a particular manufacturer.

1. Turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red
indicator remains on, then release SETUP button.
3. Press and quickly release the desired mode button
(TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks off once.
4. Press and release the numeric button (0-9)
corresponding to desired Manufacturer (see table on
code list sheet). The red indicator blinks off once.
Note, pressing “0” performs a full library search same
as normal Code Search Method on previous page.
5. Press the CHANNEL UP button ((or POWER or
PLAY (VCR only)) repeatedly until the device to be
controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks
off with each button press. If you accidentally
overshoot the code required, press the CHANNEL
DOWN
button to backtrack through the library until
the device changes channel. Pressing CHANNEL
UP
changes direction to forward again.
6. Press and release MUTE to install the code.
Brand Search Method entry is now complete.
Note: When all codes under a Brand have been searched
the red indicator flashes rapidly for 3 seconds.

I installed the converter box on channel 3 instead of channel 4


No reason to delete converter box from channel 3. Most converter boxes have a selection switch on the back for channel 3 or channel 4. Slide switch to 4 and set tv to 4.

Channel keeps skipping on rca t.v


Problem with channel skipping has rectified itself. I simply unplugged the set and and started over with remote intructions on signal and channel setting. The tv was also turning itself off and on, this also has ceased. Thanks, hope I don't need you later.

Code for Sony tv


http://www.remotecodelist.com/remotes/magnavox/Philips-Magnavox_PM525S.pdf
This is the user's manual for a Phillips remote control. There is a list of codes in it. They should be rather universal. There's also instructions as to how to program it. I believe that there is a way to program it without using the codes.

Programming with Code Search

1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.

2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.

3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.

4. Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.

Hope this helps :)
