Your new FreeView remote will only support the essential functions of your tv. In some cases that's limited to volume up and down, sound mute and on/off only, but often they can do more. Sleep timers are rarely supported.
Your fix is to either set the sleep timer on the old remote, or to buy another fully programmable learning remote control, where you can customise almost every button and use your old remote to teach the learning version its tricks.
Press the TV button on the remote, make sure the TV is plugged in, check the electrical outlet to make sure it is live if the TV does not turn on. If these actions do not solve the problem, press the Power button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, replace the batteries in the remote control and reset it by pressing the number 1 button for 60 seconds. If necessary, reprogram the remote.
Unplug the TV for two minutes, then plug it back in if the buttons on the remote don't work. Make sure the remote is in TV mode.
Change the settings on the sleep timer if the TV turns off unexpectedly. Unplug the TV and wait five minutes before plugging it back in if necessary.
Check your antenna connections and cables if the sound is okay but the picture is poor. If all the connections are good, adjust the sharpness function.
With TV powered ON press: [DISPLAY] and [VIDEO STATUS] on the remote at the same time. -or-
Press the [SLEEP TIMER] key and set the SLEEP TIMER for "0" MIN. While the SLEEP TIMER information is still on screen, press the [DISPLAY] key and [VIDEO STATUS] key of the remote control unit at the same time to enter the SERVICE MENU.
Exit the service menu by twice pressing the [EXIT] key on the remote.
The following instructions are for the Emerson EWC1303/1903 tv/vcr. That's the closest match I could find to the Spongebob Squarepants 13' TV If it's actually in Sleep mode, do the following:
TO CANCEL THE SLEEP TIMER Press the WAKE UP/SLEEP button on the remote control until “SLEEP TIMER” appears. To view the time left for sleep timer press the WAKE UP/SLEEP button twice, then press the MENU button on the remote control to exit the sleep timer setting
If unsuccessful, try unplugging the TV for 1/2 hour, then plug it in and try turning it back on either manually or with the remote. Either of these should solve your problem. Best of luck to you!
