Remote lost: My TV/VCR Combo only displays 12 channels

I have lost my remote for this combo unit and it is stuck on 12 channels. I have an expressvu remote and a universal remote that I got from Radio Shack. neither seems to have any buttons that will give me access to the on-screen programming so I can change it from Antenna to CATV. Any suggestions?

Go to or any similar site and order the original remote. That way you are sure to get a remote capable of doing whatever you need. The alternative is to keep buying universals until you get lucky and find one that works all functions on that set.

A universal remote should solve your problem. You should be able to find one on ebay. You may even be able to find one for your particular TV on ebay as well.

VCR plays tape with only sound and some channels seem deleted.

Needs the vcr heads cleaned, and get a universal remote with a menu button to change the tuner setup.

How can I turn to AV without a remote control (Samsung TV/VCR 19in Combo)

I had this problem with my TV/VCR combo unit (Samsung CXC1972) after losing the remote while in the dorms. I tried a few different universal remotes and dozens of codes before I tried the Philips 3 device universal remote as pictured below with code 037 programmed into the VCR/DVD button. I can't change the volume with this code but the input key switches between line in and tv. You can also change the channel, access the menu and operate the VCR functions with the code. I bought the remote for less than $10 at Walmart so it might be worth a try, and if it doesn't work you can always bring it back. Hope this helps.98fe8a9.jpg

Tv wil not change channels unless vcr is on

You must go into the menu, go to the channel setup and do a channel scan.. Your TV simply lost the channel memory. Good Luck
