    I have a 20' Esa television and my remote broke. I am now using a universal remote to subsitute my broken remote. It took me all day took figure out how to get it to work but i finally got it figured out. Now my problem is i need to figure out how to put my tv on input using the remote control so that i can watch my dvd player and play my xbox. Please can someone help me figure out how to do it. Buying a new remote is not an option right now.

    I have the same problem. I have a universal remote, nicely programmed, (which is no small feat for me) I have found the magic TV/VCR button, but all I get is picture. I called Circuit City, where I bought the TV, and they said they have a remote for $30.00 that will work. I guess that will be my next step if no one else has a soultion for this.

The question is not very clear and if you can confirm the make and model it will be better. Check if the connections are right and if the volume control of the remote works.

I don't have a remote for my ESA TV. How do I get onto the menu screen?

I have a 19" ESA. The Charter Code didn't work, so my sister suggested we go through all of the codes (for all the TV's). Thankfully, we didn't have to go past the A's. The code that worked for us was 052.

Lost remote codes & how to manual

Hello everyone,

OK Listen Up! `=] I found the solution to everyone's problem.

Got to this website and click on the brand name of your universal remote (Philips, RCA, whatever).

Next, download the corresponding file with all of the remote codes. This will be a great help. It comes with all of the universal codes for most TV sets, and also instructions on how to setup and install the remote code.

But, must be patient. The PDF file is very huge so the remote code is not going to jump out at you and shout "HERE I AM!". You have to READ and look for it.

The way I found my universal code was by pressing the channel up button (over 300 times, literally) until the channel on the tv changed. That is what the instructions told me to do, and that's what I did. So, when all else fails, just FOLLOW DIRECTIONS! I know it may be long and painful, but trust me it was worth it! I got my remote control to finally work!

Good Luck!

Gary M.

- By the way, sorry for the long reply. I tend to babble a lot. `=]

Need ESA code to program our Zenith Universal remote 425

I own a One-for-All universal remote (model URC-4220) , and my booklet says the setup code for an ESA TV ( without a built-in DVD or VCR) is 0171 or 0812. I can not guarantee these numbers will work with your remote, but it is worth a try.
The alternative choice, is to purchase the same remote that I have, which cost less than 10 dollars at Walmart.
