Question about Emerson EWF2704 TV

1 Answer

Remote not communicating with TV

My elderly mom has an 2002 EWF2702 Emerson TV and this seems to be a close model #.  In the past few weeks both her Emerson remote and a universal remote stopped working.  TV works fine if you use controls on the front of the set.  I have changed batteries, unplugged everything and checked connections and reprogrammed channels.  I wondered if the sensor could be bad, if that is an expensive fix or looking for any other advise of suggestions.  Don't have the manuel but see the one for 2704 online here.

Remote doesn't work for model ewf2702

Check the infrared emission from the remote control. If it is OK, the infrared sensor inside the TV is faulty. To get more details about how to check a remote control, visit the site named 'Electro-help'. You can search for it either by Google or yahoo.

I have an Emerson TV that was given to me by my brother. The TV was working fine until a few days ago. I am getting a "protected tv" message. I thought the problem was with my Dish provider. I called them...

info is hard to come by for this tv. I can't find a pin or anything for it. Have tried to contact emerson??

the number is: 18006058457. They ask that you have the model/serial but you already have it.

If I find any info I will let you know. Please comment if they get this to work.

Universal remotes won't work for Emerson 20'' CR2020EM9

It might be less costly to go to the Emerson web site, locate your model and check what remote control it answers to. Then buy the specific one.You can also go to a store that sells the particular model, take the refrences for the remote (model and Part number) and order it.

One thing though: It seems strange that a remote control made by Emerson, for a TV made by Emerson, cannnot, cannot activate an Emerson TV. Could it be a manipulation error? Just a thought.

Hope it helps.

I had the same problem it ended up being the speakers I had on top of my tv, so I had to move them. If you have anything on top of your tv with a signal move it. :)

Remote will no longer work

Your best bet is to buy a universal remote that would work with your model television or a replacement remote from your manufacturer.

This one is pretty cheap (and may be your exact remote?)

You could probably buy a universal remote cheaper at walmart or target, but the cost savings will cost you the time and hassle to program the remote (and if you buy a universal, you must make sure it works with emerson TVs).

Cant get sound from some of the channels!

Try locationg the "Play Seconday Audio" option in settings and change it either from YES to NO or NO to YES. An elderly friend of mine had the same problem and that solved it. He uses Time Warner Cable, not sure what you are using, but it is worth the try.

Get a universal remote or go online and order a replacement original remote for your model. Then use the remote to enter the menu, unlock any child locks, make sure the set is in standard cable mode and do an autoprogram.
