If the batteries are too weak, this type of malfunction can occur. Replace the batteries and check. If it do not function even with new batteries, it is defective.
Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician

Does the remote have a selector for which device it's controlling? Some are capable of multiple devices and if you don't have the right one selected they'll malfunction. Also be sure you have the correct remote control for your TV.

SOURCE: Menu not working.........

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

NOTE:
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

hope this may help;

SOURCE: mintex 37 inch wide screen. remote is working however cannot change channel, input source or volum. only turns tv off. The buttone on tv doesnot work connot change input source or volume

Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.

Unable to get tvchannels after using dvd


These days TV remotes have a "source" button on them. I'd suggest you keep pressing that until you get to the source that has your TV channels. If you don't have a source button on your remote you'll have to find some other way to switch the source channel on your TV.

How do I program for playing DVD's on the TV?


If the tv has a built in dvd player, you should simply be able to put a dvd in the drive and the tv will auto-switch to the dvd player.

If you have an external dvd player, ensure it is plugged into the tv.
On the remote you should have a button that says either "Source" or "Video"
Press this button until the video input your dvd player is plugged into is highlighted, then press "OK" or "enter" (some tv remotes have one button that highlights and also selects the input)
You may also press the "Menu" button and check in the "video" section if your tv supports "Auto input switching" This will allow your tv to automatically switch to whichever device (dvd player, game console) is turned on while the tv is on.

Please provide make / model of tv and possibly dvd player for further help.

I hook my antenna to the back and I'm not receiving a picture


Hi,

I'm assuming your Antenna is connected to your TV with a co-axial cable? If so, please make sure you have run the Analogue/Antenna/Air channel scan correctly:

1. Switch the TV on
2. Press the "MENU" button on the Curtis remote supplied with the TV.
3. Press the RIGHT arrow button five times to highlight the "Channel" menu
4. Press the "ENTER" button or the DOWN arrow once to open the "Channel" menu

The Air/Cable option should be highlighted.

5. Use the LEFT/RIGHT arrow buttons to set the "Air/Cable" option to "Air"
6. Press the DOWN arrow to highlight "Auto Scan"
7. Press the "ENTER" button or the RIGHT arrow once to start the automatic channel scan.

When the scan has finished, the TV should automatically return to viewing mode. If not, just press the "EXIT" or "MENU" button on the remote to close the menu.

You also need to make sure the correct INPUT/SOURCE is selected on the TV:

1. Press the "SOURCE" button on the Curtis remote
2. Use the UP/DOWN arrows to highlight "TV" in the INPUT SOURCE menu
3. Press the "ENTER" button on the remote to select "TV" and close the INPUT SOURCE menu.

This should be all you need to do to watch your TV from an antenna source.

Please post back if you are still unable to get it to work and need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

I can't find out how to switch the TV from cable to antena. Where is the switch?


If you have the original remote, it is the "source" button.
If not there, select menu and go to the source option and select "antenna", then press menu again to save & exit.

If no remote, the on the TV, press thge menu button and go to the source submenu and select "antenna".
At this point, you may want to do an automatic channel scan before you exit the screen via the menu button.

Hope this helps!

Can't find button on tv to change source in order to play dvd


I'm assuming that you do not have access to the remote for the TV. If you do, you can simply press "INPUT" on the remote.

If you have no remote, try this:
Press the "MENU" button on the TV.
Press "CH Down" until "Channel" is highlighted, and "MENU" to select it.
Press "CH Down" to highlight "List and Labels", and "MENU" to select it.
Press "CH Down" to go below channel 1, you should see "FRNT" displayed.
Press "MENU" to get out of the Menu system.
You should now be seeing whatever is plugged into your front connectors.

Simply pressing one of the channel buttons will switch back to normal TV mode. I could find no faster way to access the front connectors without using the remote.
