Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My Sony projection tv had all the channels programmed in the other night. Then I hit a button on my universal remote and made favorites screen come up. After I did this I can't get any channels to come up. I have tried auto programming the channels again, I have tried unplugging the tv, I even have checked the cable wire. Nothing is working. I don't have the original remote. My husband and me truly love this tv someone please help what else can I try?

It sounds that the main system control memory IC to your TV is damaged. Contact any service technician to replace it. Electro help

SOURCE: tv is locked

I had the exact problem...tried a number of things that did not work. My dog "ate" my original remote. After reading your solution I took the universal remote that was programmed to work with the tv and tried holding down each button for a few seconds hoping that one would work like the display button on the original remote. It worked. I have a GE universal remote and the menu/info button worked for me. Again, you need to hold it in for a couple of seconds. Thanks for the help and I hope my added solution helps other people. Claudia in Minnesota

You'll most likely need a Sansui remote made to work with your specific model TV. I have similar problems with my Toshiba TV. Check eBay.

SOURCE: won't receive channels above 18, cable not at fault

Your "tuner" in the menu is set on "off air" or "antenna. It should be set on "cable" or "dish". See if you can go into your menu with the buttons on the set and change your tuner setting. Keever

SOURCE: no signal

Hopefully, anyway.


I had a similar problem, and my solution was this: I pressed menu on my TV and using my universal remote, went into setup, and then channel search (or near to that), at which point it began searching for analog and digital channels. This can take up to approx. 30 minutes. I suggest you occupy yourself while waiting; it is a sluggish process.

If you want assurance, your TV will have the majority of analog channels (basic cable), and a couple digital. I am basing this wholly on my experience, however. Once finished, it should switch immediately so a channel. Mine was a weather station.


I hope this is successful in helping you and those in the future.

I lost the remote to my Toshiba cz27t31. I bought an RCA universal remote. The RCA manual says the tv should be set to channel 1. But I can't change the channel without the remote. So I am SOL! How...


  • You have to set the channel you want as a favorite first and you can do this from the TV. This is why the channels skip as you press up and down. Sometime or another those were someones favorite channels.
  1. Press "MENU" on the TV until "SET UP" appears on the screen.
  2. Now press ^ or v until "FAVORITE CH" appears in purple.
  3. Now press < or > to display the favorite channel FAVORITE CH menu.
  4. You will use < or > to got between "SET and "CLEAR."
  5. So now go to "SET" and press ^ or v until you get to channel 1.
  6. If you want to delete a channel first then select "CLEAR" and then add the channel you wish.
  • What your doing when you push the channel up and down on the TV buttons is going through the favorite channels. So make one of the favorite channels channel 1 and program your remote.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

PROGRAMING A LOGITECH HARMONY ONE?


It looks like you are speaking about the soft keys when you are in the "watch TV" activity and you have a cable box. These buttons exactly match your original remote. In other words the "A" button on the screen of the Harmony will do the same thing as the "A" button on your original cable remote. If these buttons are not functional on your original remote or if your original remote does not have them I would get rid of them. This is done by logging into your software. Go to the activities page and you will see a link to "customize buttons" under the watch TV activity, click on that. You will then see a page with two tabs that will say "standard buttons" and "additional buttons". Click on "additional buttons" and you will see the "A" "B" "C" and so on. Click on the trash can icon and you will have reomoved that button.

As for programing favorites go back to the Activities page and click settings below the watch TV activity. Select "setup favorite channels and add icons" and click next. Now you are on the page where you can add your favorite channels. Have fun with this and pay attention to the hints on the right hand side.

Code for Sony tv


http://www.remotecodelist.com/remotes/magnavox/Philips-Magnavox_PM525S.pdf
This is the user's manual for a Phillips remote control. There is a list of codes in it. They should be rather universal. There's also instructions as to how to program it. I believe that there is a way to program it without using the codes.

Programming with Code Search

1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.

2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.

3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.

4. Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.

Hope this helps :)
