Sylvania 6432FE Tv issues with Input button on any remote
Is there a way for the input command (to turn from tv to aux av cable) to be bad IN the tv? Neighbor's tv is not able to work with vcr/dvd now and the remote has been replaced. Every button works on the remotes but the input to switch from tv to vcr/dvd.
It does go w/o saying that if there is a quick fix, I would appreciate knowing HOW. I do have some knowledge inside tv's but if it is too complicated for me, then a complicated answer to give a tech at the repair shop is appreciated. All I am being told is that they would have to open it up and see what they find, no pricing on what it could run etc.

I was able to get the Sylvania TV to accept a different input (the remote was lost) by connecting the DVD to a Sony VCR using composite RCA jacks then connecting that to the TV.
You'll need two 3-jack (yellow, white, red composite) cables - cheap at any store. Here;s how: 1. Connect RCA output jacks from the DVD to the input female receptacles of the VCR (first cable).2. Connect output jacks from VCR to the female input jacks on TV (second cable). 3. Turn on all equipment (VCR, DVD, TV)4. Switch the VCR to "Line 1" (for my Sony VCR, this shows up as "L1") by pressing the TV/VCR button on the VCR remote (which I did have). Your system should now work. The principle is to "fool" the TV into thinking that it's primary input is through the RCA composite A/V jacks rather than the cable connection. No need to disconnect the cable at any time. Any functioning VCR should work well as long as you have the remote for that device. Remember, connect output on the DVD to the input on the VCR, then the output on the VCR to the input jacks on the back of the TV. If you have the connectors on the TV, VCR, and DVD, component cables should work as easily. Remember, output from the DVD goes to the input of the VCR. Theoutput from the VCR (for which you DO have the remote) goes to the input side of the TV. Good luck!
You might try hitting the MENU button on the tv itself to see if you are able to select input / source that way. Some TVs also have the Aux Inputs selected by scrolling through the channels until you come to the aux inputs.
On a esitmate around $90 with the parts. Now it might be higher where you live (who knows).
where I live $15 bucks but I am sure you do not want to take it to mexico?
Dependso n your area, and the labor going into it. But I would clock it at $90 respectivly. Now here is a wrok around. You can get a RF to RCA converter from radio shack hook it up to the tv put the tv on channel 3 and bingo! instant inputs.
OK! This should and WILL help solve you issue WITHOUT costing you a huge bill. Please do be considerate when passing threw fixya the Quality of answer you got for free and leave a rating and some feedback, Thanks
The tv should be on channel 3. Otherwise, you can go to menu on tv, then find "autoprogram" and it will search all available channels. Usually tv should be on channel 3 if hooked up with a coaxil cable and aux or AV or Input if you are using rca jacks.
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?
The Wii console should have included a cable to plug into the AV Multi-out Connector. This cable has the plug for the Wii on one end, and three RCA plugs on the other. They are color-coded yellow for the video output, and red and white for right and left channel audio outputs. These plugs would go into the corresponding RCA input jacks on your TV (if it has them), and you would select that input using the TV remote or front panel buttons.
If your TV doesn't have A/V inputs, you need to get an RF converter. This device takes the A/V signals from the Wii and converts it to a signal on channel 3 or 4 so you can tune it in on your TV. These cost around $15 at Wal-Mart and other retailers.
If you have lost your Wii connecting cable or didn't get one, you can order replacements from online vendors.
Aux is used for a buncha reasons, video, dvd, etc.... How is your video connected to your TV? Many TVs have a remote control button to change input, or TV/VCR button, try tapping that if you've got it. need the model of the TV if not applicable
