SOURCE: cant get the remote to

To diagnose a remote control problem follow these steps.

1) unplug the TV power cord, count to five and plug it back in. (reboot)
2) try to power on with ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER remote.

if that works- your TV and original remote are fine.

if that does not work:
4) try to power on with buttons on the TV itself- if it works- check your remote batteries and try remote again.

Direct TV and Dish Network remotes will ONLY operate SIMPLE function of your TV such as power, volume, input.
They will NOT access your TV menu.

My new toshiba 32 inch regza turns on but thats all it does? no picture, sound even menu dosnt come up


First if a "new" set and if in warranty--have them deal with the problem.

If nothing on remote except on and off works--it is a micro problem (microprocessor) in the set.

I assume you did unplug the set---wait and plug it back as that could allow the micro to reset.

The key clue here is nothing on remote works except on/off?

I can't turn off the demo mode on my sony bravia tv


Press Menu on tv remote, go to Settings and select Factory Reset and press enter button on remote, tv will reset to factory default settings and turn Off and On again itself, now select HOME mode instead of Shop mode to avoid demo mode and go by initial setup screen instructions.
Above are generic info about Sony bravia tv, let me know model number of your tv if you do not see factory reset option in settings menu.
Thanks.

Language setup for Mitsubishi HS-U510 VCR


I contacted Mitsubishi support. It is very likely the 510 and the 520 are similar. I was told to look at the back of the VCR (in the middle and lower) for a "timer reset" button. Pushing it will put you into initial setup mode and you can set your VCR to english menu. It works!

Channel stuck on TV


This may work;

Access the service menu by pressing, in order, whilst the tv is in stand-by mode:

info
menu
mute
power

when the tv comes back on you will have a service menu; select option 12 (reset) the tv will then switch off.

this will reset your TV back to factory defaults.

turn tv back on and you should be prompted to go through the plug and play setup again - go through everything and then all should start working OK (it did for me)
