Question about Toshiba 27A34 27" TV

2 Answers

TV/Video My mother recently gave me this TV, but without the remote, so I bought a universal remote, and I can not for the life of me change the source to play video games or dvds, which is why it was given to me.. I have tried everything and unlocked the video function, and it STILL does not work.. just wondering if you can only change the source with the original remote or if there is something i can do to solve this.

Re: TV/Video

I actually found a remote from Giant Tiger. It is a Jumbo Remote, and it is the only remote i have found that is able to switch to TV/Video. It was actually a fluke that we discovered this because our intention was to use it to enter 9-1-1 to change traffic lights, and low and behold it works. i already had an rf modulator i purchaced from walmart, but it didn't activate, even though it was set to channel 3 and all the connections were correct. This is the remote i purchased that works thank you so much for trying, I really appreciate the support :)

If your tv is one of the old model you will have to buy a RF modulator or use a vcr.that is to say your tv will have to tune to channel 3 or 4.good luck

I just bought a Sanyo tv and do not have the original remote. I can't find out how to change the channel into a video input to use my DVD player. Any ideas how to do this without having to buy an...

In most cases, it will be immpossible to select inputs without a remote control. You can get more details about setup codes for Sanyo by visiting this site. "Electro-help". Just get into the site, and check the setup codes for Sanyo TV. Details about codes for almost all TVs are described here. By checking the setup codes, you can understand which universal remote has codes for your Sanyo TV, and can select it. Type the site name either google or yahoo. It is an electronic equipments service help site, I've came across recently. A good and useful site indeed. You can see it either at the bottom portion of the fist page of google search. Sometimes, you may have to go to second page.

Lost remote control for an emerson tv. how do you change input from channel to video without the remote?

I just purchased one of these televisions and it didn't come with a remote. However, a Philips Universal Remote (SRU2103/27)
with a code 0520 works fine. I haven't explored all the codes but I can easily change from tv stations to Video 1 and Video 2 merely by pressing the "Input" button on the remote.

Want to use only the cable remote, can't find the code

I recently bought a used LCT2060 that had no remote. I figured my comcast cable remote would work without a problem but it didn't. So 3 universal remotes later I found my solution...a radio shack2_bing.gif universal gamer remote. It controls up to 5 components plus your xbox360, playstation and pc. The price on sale was a mere 12.97, not bad if you ask me. Hope this helped. The code that worked for the Akai2_bing.gif was 11676. Take care...

Most universal remotes should have a TV/Video button. Look carefully on the remote. Or get another brand remote.

Also depending on your Sanyo model there may be a TV/Video switch on the front of the set. Look for a possible small cover along the bottom.

Sanyo stuck on video mode

Yippie, I figured out a solution that worked!!! I have a univeral remote from comcast, on that remote near the bottom left is a small button that says (input) tv/vcr, press that one time and whala!! the tv video screen was gone, I had to manually change the channel from the tv channel button on the unit. once I changed the channel to 3, my universal remote worked... the button is the second one from the bottom left... I was on hold with sanyo for a long time and just kept trying on my own, so good luck!!!!

Cant change channels

Your in the video mode so you have to change the input. On the original remote, its the button left of the power button. A universal may not work for this. If you need the original remote, Its available at Good Luck
