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.

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

One for all universal remote i am trying to program my seiki television. I lost the original remote and the power button on the television is broken so I cant turn the television on

Always better to buy a genuine replacement. The problem is that if I remember correctly, Seiki don't actually make the television, which is why it never features in the Remote Code Lists. I have just checked three sites.

Getting a universal remote. If your tv has buttons look for source or input. If no buttons some tvs power button will bring a menu up if you tap it. Some do not and need a remote.

The tv that i have is a old model and does not have a hook up for a dvd player so i bought a s video cord but i don't have the remote for the tv to switch it to video so do i have to buy a converter

Maybe. What tv do you have? Does it have any buttons on the tv itself (other than the power button)? (Some older TVs reached the "change source feature" by scrolling up (past all channels) or down (below channel) with the channel up/down buttons. Unfortunately if you can't reset the channel skip list from the TV itself, this may not work - if that source is currently skipped.)

You may be able to get a replacement of the original remote or a universal remote that has a compatible source/input button code. (This may take a higher end universal remote.) Try for a direct substitute remote (search on the tv model without including the brand).

If neither of these suggestions work out, then you should consider the RF modulator (video to RF converter) and setting the TV to channel 3 or 4, as needed.

I hope this helps.

(if you provide the model, I'll check my pile of manuals to see if there was a channel down/up option for changing the source. I can also check if has a compatible remote for you.)

Need the prizmo tv codes for a universal remote

Prizmo TV no universal remote codes work. I called RC Willey (where I purchased the Prizmo TV) to get a replacement remote for my Prizmo 19" TV. Customer service finally gave me a number for Red Rock Sourcing 1-702-252-5049. Red Rock took my Prizmo TV model number and they apologized for any inconvience. I told them no universal remote codes work for the Prizmo TV. Red Rock Sourcing is sending me a free replacement Prizmo remote by Fed-Ex. I hope this helps you.

I have an AKAI LCT2715 and the codes Comcast gave

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...
