Buttons/ Remote won't operate TV

I turned the TV on and the remote would not operate anything. Managed to change from TV to video1, 2, 3, 4 but now TV is on channel 123 instead of channel 3. All of the buttons on front panel change the video/TV...even Menu and volume controls. I have tried unplugging for several hours but no change.

Can't get the tv to switch from cable to antenna mode using a RadioShack remote or the buttons on tv

It sounds that the front panel controls are locked with your tV. You have to unlock it first, if you want to change its input selections. If you cannot select the inputs by using the remote control [I thing you are using a universal remote control], setup the remote control with an other setup code. All codes to remote control won't work with some functions. You have to search and select, which code give maximum functionality with your TV.

TV doesn't respond to remote controller suddenly. I changed batteries of the controller and checked it. The controller is not a problem. I tried manual buttons on TV but it didn't work. TV turns on and...

This is caused by radio frequency and what i mean by that isyour tv unit is gettng confused with the crystals that control the connection between the tv and remote.The solution to this is to go to wal mart and buy a new universal remote and in the package should be an instruction manual to set the remote to the tv , First find your tv name in the pamplet,second there will show a code of the remote type it in and enjoy.

Lost remote control. can't change language

It is always more difficult to operate the menu features of a tv using the manual buttons on the tv. I recommend you unplug the ac cord of the tv from the wall for a day while you go out and buy a universal remote control. After plugging the tv back in and turning it on initially most television on screen prompts immediately direct you to the set up menu which includes setting the language.

Follow the instructions on the universal remote and program the remote to the tv using the power button on the remote to determine if you have reached the right code. It will then be possible to operate the menu features of the tv via the remote control and thus change the language back to english.

Won't receive channels above 18, cable not at fault

Your "tuner" in the menu is set on "off air" or "antenna. It should be set on "cable" or "dish". See if you can go into your menu with the buttons on the set and change your tuner setting. Keever

Remote problems and now FPA locked

In the worse case:
It is very possible that the remote recieve on the set has gone defective. It is also possible that there is a fault with the processor in the set, and the remote signals are not being responded to.

As for your universal remote, I don't trust them.

Did you try changing the batteries in the remote? Make sure the new ones are actualy in good condition.

No input channels

Universal remote control are normally programmed for basic functions, ie. chennel up down, volume up down, numbers, etc. This is even written in the manual that they do not guarantee that all functionality can be used. Here are your options: 1. Try all the codes that match your TV, there is a slim chance that the other code have the functionality that you need. 2. Buy the original model remote control. 3. If you know of someone that have the same TV, buy a universal remote control with 'learning' function and copy the signal from the original remote control. I have the same problems before. Now I use my Casio wrist remote control to copy the special functions such as A/V so that even if the original remote control is lost, I can still use these functionality
