Remote control not working fully and loss of most of freeview

My freeview 'guide' key and the keys to scroll up and down through the menus are not working, although they are registring with the TV as the red light on the TV is flashing. I am also only getting 5 radio channels on freeview now so have no idea where the others have gone! My main stream TV is working fine still.
The TV is only 1 year old!

Please help!

Thanks,

Nicole

Using Remote Control Press SetUp
Using Remote Control Scroll To Preference using Left / Right Arrow keys (Just Highlight it do NOT select it)
Using Remote Control Press 1 3 8 9 3 1

Region Menu Screen Should Appear

Using Remote Control Select Desired Region Using Up / Down Arrow Keys (0 [Zero] For Region Free)

Hope this helps.

How to unlock my APEX 21" tv model 2002 without a remote control?


Hello
It is impossible to unlock Apex TV without its remote control. If you have its remote control do this.

Apex TVs use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for many models is 6688. Other sets may not have one, or may have a default code of 1225 instead of an override code.
  1. To use the override code:
  2. Hit the MENU key to get to the menus.
  3. Go down to the SYSTEM menu and hit the right arrow on the remote control.
  4. Once in the SYSTEM menu, go to PARENTAL GUIDE. It will ask for your code.
  5. Enter the override code listed above. From here, you can turn on and off different rating restrictions, as well as set a new code.
No matter what the V-chip code is set to, the override code will still work. If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desired
Ok

Where is the zoom on the remote control?


You have not mentioned the model to help you with the solution. But please check for any key that acts as the up /down control keys on the remote.
Sometimes the common scroll keys can be the zoom keys with a select mode.
so check this out.

Have bought a second hand philips 28pw6506, it has no remote control. Do you know how to change the aspect ratio or size of picture on screen? Have looked through the menus with the button on top of the...


Hello
To change its picture aspect ratio, you have to go to its menu. As you haven't its remote control there is an option for that, mentioned in its user manual. I hereby send it to you. Do the same and access the aspect ratio.

The television set has 4 keys which are located

on the front or the top of the set depending
on the model.

The VOLUME - + (- Vol +) keys are used to

adjust sound levels.The PROGRAM - + (- P +)

keys are used to select the required programmes.

To access the menus, simultaneously hold down

the VOL- and VOL+ keys.The PROGRAM - +

keys may then be used to select an adjustment

and the - VOL+ keys to make that adjustment.

To exit from the menus, hold down the 2 VOL-

and VOL+ keys.


Note: when the Child Lock function is activated,
these keys are unavailable
OK.

I have accidentally turned the child lock on and then turned of the tv and when i switch it back on it comes up locked on the screen and none of the buttons respond and i do not have the remote controll...


Get a Magnavox (or Philips, same company) brand universal remote and try this. I found this info at a tech website, but I haven't tried it myself (never have used parental lock on any set), so I don't know if really a solution.

Philips sets use 0711 as the override code to defeat parent lock. You may need to enter the code twice if it says "invalid code" the first time.

Using the remote control:

Press the MENU key. Scroll up or down until you reach AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK. Press the "right arrow" key. Enter code 0711. Enter it again if it says invalid code.

Once in the AUTOLOCK or SMARTLOCK menu:

Scroll to BLOCK. Press the "right arrow" key. Scroll to BLOCKING OPTIONS. Press the "right arrow" key. Scroll to MASTER DISABLE. Press the "right arrow" key. This should unlock the parental control.

Hope this works for you. Thanks for using Fixya!

Menu Scrolls Uncontrollably


The most common cause of the problem is a stuck/shorted button either on the television or on the remote. The worst case scenario is a faulty key control board. Remove the remote control battery or put it away from the television. Press the menu button on the television and check if the menu scrolls by itself. If yes, the DOWN button is stuck or shorted. You can actually hear or feel it click when pressed if it is not stuck.

Open the back of the television to gain access to the key control board. You can either repair/replace the faulty button or replace the key control board. Remove the screw holding it to the television casing. Disconnect the old board and install the new one.

Replace the remote control if the buttons on the television control are working properly.

I have a px-rc1 remote and I have it working with my DVD player. What keys do I use to navigate around the menus?


the problem with universal remote controls is that. Some keys are not recognize, because there are really general keys available. if you can tun on the dvd meaning that at least you can get communication in between sets. now try pushing different keys, anyway if there is something strange then push again that button that let you get back with no problem.
