Press Menu on the TV (second button from the left) or the remote. Use the Vol + / Vol - buttons to highlight Tuner, only available when the input is the TV (press TV/AV to get to the correct source) mode. Press Ch+/Ch- to highlight AutoProgram and then Vol+ to start the search for channels. The TV will show Tuning Finished when done and then go to the lowest channel found. If you want to add or remove stations, tune to the desired channel, then press Menu, and highlight Tuner, Ch+/Ch- to highlight Add/Erase, then Vol+/Vol- to set Add or Erase. Press TV/AV/Exit to get out of the menu.
Try website like Remotes.com to buy an original remote.Tries video button on the tv front manual for video input 1 or 2.Or press the manual button channel + - couple times to enter input.If,no video button.
I would suggest you try to find a universal remote that has an "input" or "source" button and program that one to your tv. By pressing the "source" or "input" button, it will change the input to the tv.
I hope this helps!
If there is a mode button, otherwise if there are not other buttons on the set itself, try tuning channels with autoprogram or channel add/edit and see if there is an INPUT or AV channel. Otherwise you can get universal or origonal remote online.
Actually I found there are several remotes that work. The first is the Bright House networks remote, the larger one...The second is The Universal Remove Control by GE. It's numbered 24944 in the upper right hand corner of the paper. It's sold for $4.94 at Walmart in the checkout area...
I found that manually inputting the code for the remote doesn't work. You have to do a search for the code using their method...on this particular remote from Walmart, its hold the setup button down until it lights up, then press and depress the TV button...then press channel up until the TV changes channels. It worked once, but I just kept going, the 2nd time it worked, then I pressed the mute button [to keep the code] and it works...you simply press input and it switches to AV.
I have to admit I thought it was ridiculous that you can't use this particular TV without the remote, but I was happy that I went through the effort the first time to keep trying remotes...
This is the first kids TV that I have found that you can't find the AV channel by going through the channels AND you can't hook up two items to the AV outlets because you have to disconnect the back or front ones, to use the other....PLUS it only comes with a dual AV outlet, instead of the 3 plugs [red, white, yellow] only has the white and yellow.
You should be watching tv in no time. Email me and let me know how it went I would like to know if I was able to help. email@example.com
1-You didn't say what model tv you have. Is it a HDTV? 2-Are you using an over the air (roof) or set top antenna connected to the tv? 3-Are you getting the no program or weak signal message on all channels? 4-Have you tried first cycling through the source or input button to make sure you are on TV and not on an input. Sometimes if you are on an input and for example the device connected to that input is off you wil get a no signal until you turn the device first but you probably already know that. 5-When you were in the process of scanning for channels assuming you had an over the air antenna connected did you make sure and select the ota option and not cable? if you have an ota antenna and not cable you need to select ota before scanning for channels.
Now assuming you have an ota antenna and you chose ota before scanning or doing a re scan and after the scan you still get the no program or weak signal message that means there is no signal and you may be using the wrong antenna or try moving the antenna in the direction of the television tower if you know where that is or turn in another direction but unless you are using the wrong antena you should get something.
Assuming you received some channels or even if you did not, try to and add channels by hand. Heres how: first you need to know the RF frequency channel or digital channel its transmitting on you just cant input the number of the display channel you want like on a tube at least not initially but you can after you first input the rf or digital channel number first and saving it on your tv then you can just input the display channel number you are used to. Heres how to manually force the tv to enter a channel without a scan or re scan and possibly loosing other channels with a rescan.
Go here http://www.rabbitears.info/search.php and go to state search choose your state from drop down list and click search now do you see the list of stations? on the left you have the display channel (thats the number you usually entered on a regular tv) and next to that is the digital channel (thats the number you need to enter on an hdtv or dtv initially to force the tv to accept the channel because if you just enter the number your used to initially the tv wont find it) the tv should now automatically redirect you to the channel you are normally used to and any digital equivalent and any sub channels for that channel. Now save it into memory in your tv menu channel list. do this for every channel for your area if you were unable to pick up any stations during a scan.
From the manual (search Google for CM27101S):
Normally, your TV displays the signal coming through the antenna terminal. However, If you?ve
connected another component to your TV(such as a VCR) using the Video/Audio input, you will
want to be able to view the signal from the component.
To do this, you will need to switch from the ? TV ? input to the ? Line1, Line2 ? Input, as follows:
1 With the TV on, press the MENU button twice, then ? Set-Up ? menu will appear.
2 Use the WCHVbuttons to select ? Input ?.
3 Press the CVOLB buttons to change from ? TV ? to ? Line1, Line 2 ?.
4 Wait 10 seconds, or press the MENU button to return to normal TV viewing.
