    I have this problem, but the other way around. Universal Remotes do not seem to work for me. All the buttons work except for the TV/Video Button or "Input" button.

    I tried RCA variety, any luck?

    I have a Durabrand tv and I can't find the remote. The tv won't put out a picture on any channel. I went to the menu, opened the v-chip set up and was asked for the access code, which I can't, even if I had it, enter it because I don't have the remote. The model # is DWT2405. I would like the access code for this tv model and a solution how to enter it once I receive it. Please contact me soon with any answers at:

Fairly easy and resourceful fix for this. Spent the past hour on the net looking, and no one had any info. So, we post here!

Our remote was lost, and were in the same unable to use the input port situation on our Durabrand BH1304D. Tried 3 universal remotes with no luck. However--- we are back in business now, Houston!

My fix-- grab a DirectTV remote (we had a white one-- RC 32 is the model). It's compatible with this 13" Durabrand TV, and most people a neighbor probably have one!

To program it to the TV (at least in our case), you have to slide the top switch to TV, then hold and press MUTE and SELECT until the green light flashes twice under the TV switch. Then press numbers 11034 and the light should flash twice again. Ta-da! Should be in business. We were!

The input button also worked as is, no need for the other step listed in the remote manual. But if your TV is changing channels and volume, but no input button, quick easy fix there too apparently. Didn't have to use it, but the input button can be activated or deactivated as needed. Simply hld SELECT and MUTE down again, the hit 960 on the keypad. That should be the activate/deactivate code per the manual.

Hope this helps someone, as the durabrand remote situation stinks, but thanks to the power of internet and users like us, there's now a solution in your reach! :)

How to change the tv mode. Its on AV mode and i want to change it back to TV mode

You can set the Game mode and External input mode at the same time by pressing the GAME button on the remote control. "GAME" appears on the TV screen. To exit the the Game mode and the external input mode, press the GAME button on the remote control again. To cancel GAME mode only, adjust the PICTURE control. The game mode will be set ot 'OFF" automatically. In this case "VIDEO" instead of "GAME" appeares on the TV screen. When you press the GAME button if the TV is off, the TV turns ON and will be in the GAME mode and external input mode automatically.

The mikomi ctv14440 I have has a scart socket on the back. Plug in an scart to av phono adaptor which has an input/output switch. Set the switch to input and press AV on the remote control. Now you can use the mikomi ctv14440 as an AV monitor with suitable leads. Press TV on the remote control to return to normal TV.

Lost original remote. Can't access game mode.

Press the Video or AV button on the TV itself. Otherwise, may need to scroll down past Channels 0, to get Video or L1.

Lost remote

Actually I found there are several remotes that work. The first is the Bright House networks remote, the larger one...The second is The Universal Remove Control by GE. It's numbered 24944 in the upper right hand corner of the paper. It's sold for $4.94 at Walmart in the checkout area...

I found that manually inputting the code for the remote doesn't work. You have to do a search for the code using their method...on this particular remote from Walmart, its hold the setup button down until it lights up, then press and depress the TV button...then press channel up until the TV changes channels. It worked once, but I just kept going, the 2nd time it worked, then I pressed the mute button [to keep the code] and it simply press input and it switches to AV.

I have to admit I thought it was ridiculous that you can't use this particular TV without the remote, but I was happy that I went through the effort the first time to keep trying remotes...

This is the first kids TV that I have found that you can't find the AV channel by going through the channels AND you can't hook up two items to the AV outlets because you have to disconnect the back or front ones, to use the other....PLUS it only comes with a dual AV outlet, instead of the 3 plugs [red, white, yellow] only has the white and yellow.

A disappointing TV to say the least.

Old Sylvania model #6420FB lost remote how to switch to av mode

Unless the TV has a front-panel menu button and allows you to switch modes from there, you are out of luck. There are two possibilities. One is to try another replacement remote. If you get a universal remote made by the TV manufacturer (Magnavox), it may have buttons that will work. The other option is to purchase an RF converter, which will cost around $15. This will take the video/audio signals from the game and convert it to a channel 3 or 4 signal you can then tune in on the TV. The picture won't be quite as bright and clear as with direct AV input, but it will do the trick.

Try channel buttons on TV, if it doesn't work then you'll need a cheap universal remote control.

Teenage mutant Ninja turtles 13 inch TV

My son has a TMNT tv and the remote is broken or just the button to turn it to the games. I bought a universal remote and it does work some so that he can play his games but it doesn't let him enter two digit channels to change them so he has to scroll through them to get where he wants. It is an RCA - RCR312W remote and is universal but I had to go through the steps for the auto code search which was a little confusing and took a little while. The remote only cost about 8.00. All of the features don't work and I am sure that with a little playing around I could figure out the brand from the code but I haven't yet. Hope that this helps and if anyone else has a better solution please let me know.
