SOURCE: changing channels has become very slow.

Have you tried updating the firmware and making sure the inter-key delay for the device that you use to change channels is set to 0?

check your batteries to make sure they are good. if they are good you may need to default the remote and reprogram. if this doesn't fix it you will need another one

I have a phillips universal remote and I need the code that matches to a Liteon dvd player and recorder. Model LVW-1101HC1

The codes that I have are for the LVW-1101 ( and possibly 1105). The remote responds to the JVC remote code [0623] but the individual command buttons are scrambled and need to be programmed in-unless you have the remote w/ learning):

266-play 286-TV (as source)
292-Fast Rewind 296-Cursor Rt.
301-Fast Forward 304-Record
316-1 325-7
326-Cursor/Channel Up 328-Timer
329-0 330-Menu
364-Setup 365-Select
367-Stop 368-Previous Track
369-Cursor/Channel Down 385 Commercial Skip
389-Source 390-Next Track
413-Cursor Left 416-Display
417-2 420-Open/Close
421-3 427-4
431-Top Menu 433-Navigate Menu
452-5 453-Easy Guider
454-9 455-Power
459-6 462-Tools
474-8 479-Pause/Step
500-Channel Editor

Finding the codes is not hard-just tedious.

Channels are skipping

Turn the power off to the receiver and let it run its course. It should download a new program guide at this time. Another thing is to make sure you are on ALL SUB on the guide as opposed to a favorite self created guide.Thanks for using Fix Ya.

TV stuck on blue video screen

This usually happens when you are on a source that doesn't have a signal such as a channel with no signal or an AV input that is not connected.

You should look for a button that has TV/VCR or TV/VIDEO on it. I've guessing that you've already tried to change the channel but if not try that.

Last ditch effort in that case may be to unplug the TV for a few secouds. Warning- this may wipe out any settings you have entered such as the channel programming (which channels to skip while surfing) but along with that goes the blue screen.
