The channel buttons on the tv and remote only navigate through the channels programed into the tv. You will need to go into set up and scan for channels or manually add channels you wish to receive.

I have had several technicians at my parents house they have a sanyo pdp42xr9da with remote rcj17oa the remote dosent talk to tv we have had the tv for two years it did work but now dosent please suggest...


Most of the fault in this kind of symptoms is the remote control itself.
To confirm it, aim directly the remote control to your cellphone camera and press any button key at the remote control. While pressing the button key, you will be able to see the flash of the infrared indicating that the remote control is working fine. If you can't see the flash of the infrared this is an indication that the remote control is already faulty.


Remote control

If you've confirmed that the remote control is working fine, then the fault came from the infrared receiver(sensor) of your tv. It needs to check by the qualified technician to isolate the problem.
Feel free to ask question of you need further assistance.

Hi, i have 14 "


As I see it, your problem has something to do with your remote. I bet you have pressed the "auto search" button of your remote that's why your TV keeps on searching channels automatically from channel 76 down. Here's what you've got to do:

1. Get your remote control
2. Turn on your TV.
3. Press the "auto search" button to stop your TV from automatically searching channels.
4. In case it works, I'd advise you to look for channels manually using the number buttons or the "previous" or "next" buttons.
5. If it doesn't work still, contact your technician or your service provider about it. They are of great help for you!

I hope it helps. Thanks a lot.

TV is on one channel and will not work with remote or allow me to change channells from side of tv


I've run into this same issue. Although not a complete fix, I was able to program the tv with a basic universal remote. Try using the Goldstar remote codes. While I'm unable to use the channel buttons, I can change channels manually and turn the tv on/off and use the volume button. Again, not a fix, but a work around for now.
