Re: spongebob television

It may sound silly, but did you check the batteries inside the remote control? I thought I'd ask since you didn't mention it.

We do not have the original remote, it was broken last year. We replaced it with a Phillips Universal remote which has worked fine until recently. The tv was in video mode when the batteries were knocked...

It shouldn't make any difference what mode the TV is in when programming the remote control. After you replace the batteries, just reprogram the control with whatever code you used before. If you didn't make a note of the code, use the remote's code search feature. That only needs the TV to be on, so that it shuts off when you find the right code. Once the remote has the right code back in it, you'll be able to switch the TV out of video mode.

What is the code to go whith the spongebob tv on the dish network

I would suggest using a Power Scan to program the remote to this TV, if this doesn't work there is a compatibility issue.
Power Scan
1.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, then press 500 pound ( #)
2.) Hold down the clear "TV" button on the remote for four seconds, press the big power button once.
3.) Press the channel up button once per second until the TV turns off then press pound (#).

How do i program the remote to the tv?

The spongebob remote is preprogrammed to the tv. If the remote is not working then you may be able to find a universal remote to operate the TV. If the TV is not receiving then no remote will help...

Can I buy a universal remote for my spongebob tv?

Yes, I believe they use IR like most TVs. Therefor any "learning" remote will work such as an MX, Harmony or pronto.

I have a spongebob TV and teh remote stopped woring can i buy just a replacement remote? My Cable TV remote wont work


Please contact for replacement remote. it's where I got mine or
just get a generic remote and any tv shop .

Actually I found there are several remotes that work. The first is the Bright House networks remote, the larger one that they provide you when you get digial service.

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 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.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

My kid's Spongebob TV SB315 model is all screwed up!! I try to hook up a dvd to it and can't watch anything!

I believe that what you are watching are the responses of the portable DVD player on screen menu. How about just trying to get the tv to work for now, then try the DVD again?...accordianman

My 2 year old lost our Spongebob Television remote control. To replace, I contacted Emerson Radio at 1-800-909-1240 and they gave me their parts supplier's number 1-800-321-6993. They have replacement remote controls, but for $29.99.
