Universal remote works for basics but won't change input
I need to set up a Wii in my son's room; it is an old Toshiba tv with av inputs on front panel. The original remote is lost and I'm using an RCA universal rcr311st that works fine for television functions but I cannot get it to switch the input to "aux" so he can use the Wii. I don't see any manual way to do this on the television itself.
Is there any way to do this?

Re: Universal remote works for basics but won't change...
good day , what button can you see infront of your TV screen?
Not familiar with this model but if you'll manage to locate a button marked as "TV/AV" or "AV" press this button until it the display switch to A/V mode (audio/video). Or if this is a really old model, from Tuner mode or channel model. set the channel station to 1 then press the " - channel " button and see if it will change from tuner mode to A/V mode

If the Wii is not used, and if some other source is used, does the set still stay stuck??? If it stays stuck with the Wii connected, but not with some other device, then the fault is with the Wii and not the TV. Maybe there is something in the characteristics with the Wii output that is the cause...
If that input stays stuck with any source, when I used to do TV service there were a number of things that caused this. I had to sometimes change the input control IC (input matrix IC), and or, one or a few of the components associated with this IC. These components were identified by following the digital control signal paths with a digital scope and volt meter and using the schematic diagram as reference. Sometimes I found the main uPC (micro-controller) in the TV set was the cause because it was not properly sending the command for the input change.
The most basic thing you can check is if the remote is sending the proper remote command signal to the set. If you do not have a remote control signal analyzer you can try another remote such a universal remote control to compare.
Sanyo sets, especially the old ones are like this, if no button on set the only thing you might try is run one channel at a time below channel 2 to see if one of the upper channels is the video input, other than that you are done.
You are trying to connect the TV by AV setup. You have to select the input selection to TV to AV. If the TV have a Menu button on its front panel, you can enter into its menu options, surf through, and select the input selection window. Here you can select input to AV. If there is no 'Menu' button on the front panel of the TV, you can'd do this selction. You must have its remote control to select this option.
The only way to change the source for the 28PW8608/05 is to use the remote. On the original remote, just below and to the left of the power button is the button you need. The image on it is a square with an arrow going into the square from one side. The inputs should go TV, EXT1, EXT2, (EXT3 on some models), Front). Depending on the set top box, you may need to enter the setup menu and set the digital source for the input (Press together Fast Rewind and Stop > Setup > Digital Source) or the decorder (next option in Setup).
If you do not have the original remote, you will need universal remote with an input or source button and to find the code that matches the function. Some codes may only operate the basic functions. (The lowest end universal remotes often lack this feature.) A universal remote that can be programmed via a USB connection with a computer will be the fastest to set up.
I believe on the Toshiba 14AF44 that you can change inputs by using the channel button on the front of the TV, as well. Either channel down to the lowest channel and then channel down again to start going through the available inputs, or channel up to the highest channel and then channel up again to start going through the available inputs.
Hope this helps!
If you have the original TV remote there should be a button that has Input or I Select or something similar. You need to press that button when you have the Wii turned on to find the right input it is connected to. There more than likely L1 L2 AV1 or AV2 or Front AV or something similar that your Wii is connected to. Or sometimes just going Channel Down past channel 3 will get you to one of the inputs I mentioned.
During a recent move the remote was lost. I have the 6420FF in my son's room and trying to set up dvd and wi console set up, but cannot adjust tv via menu button on tv. Is there any way to set-up game system and/or dvd without remote?
You may have to get an exact replacement to get ALL the set's functions to operate. Universal remotes don't let you access all the functions of some TV's
If you can use the buttons on the front of the set to bring up the menu, you may be able to scroll through it and find where you can select the type of input you want. You would select AV.
On some sets you can use the menu button to enter the menu and navigate to the page which shows what input is currently selected and change it there. If your set does not have that option, then you will need the remote to do it. I have found that on some universal remotes, the TV/VCR button switches the inputs on the TV when the remote is in the TV mode. If that button does not work on your remote for your set, and you have tried all possible codes for JVC TVs, then the only way to switch inputs is to invest a few dollars more and get an original remote from JVC or have the set repaired so that the input button on the TV functions again.
