Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts.

SOURCE: sanyo stuck on video mode

Yippie, I figured out a solution that worked!!! I have a univeral remote from comcast, on that remote near the bottom left is a small button that says (input) tv/vcr, press that one time and whala!! the tv video screen was gone, I had to manually change the channel from the tv channel button on the unit. once I changed the channel to 3, my universal remote worked... the button is the second one from the bottom left... I was on hold with sanyo for a long time and just kept trying on my own, so good luck!!!!

SOURCE: video mode

I went to add/delete channels in my menu on my symphonic and it let me scroll through the channels, make sure you have them all set to add (by pushing the volume buttons to make them light blue instead of purple)....after adding all of your channels (or just the one if you use dish) just power the tv off while on a channel and then power back on and you should have tv.

I have a 32" GE XS Stereo- Commercial Skip T.V. Model# 25GT270 Made in Mexico Aug 1999 > No remote. I purchased a GINORMOUS universal remote control new in the box from 2nd hand store. No instructi


:),a tv does not use either play or stop commands,in most universal remote u need to set the apropriate code for the tv set so u can use volum,chanells and other tv specific commands.
In order to do that u need the manual!!! many china remotes have printed on the back of the box a long list or have a very thin paper hide in the box eith several codes.
good practice:a universal remote use a SET button and a TV button,that if u press at the same time will enter the mode set tv code.if u don,t have the code,press once again set after set+tv,will enter the scan mode,keep the remote pointed on the tv,if lucky after a short time(1 minute) the remote scanned and found the tv so u can enjoy some commands.many tv set have comun codes that will make a remote with no apropriate set to stop in a not full mode,so u only will acces part of the commands...post video and fotos
best regards

Check the remote carefully for a stuck button. You may have pressed a button and it went a bit crooked getting stuck.
Also, remove the batteries of the remote and try operating the TV manually. If the remote is the cause, the TV will work correctly once you remove the batteries.
Another way to check is by using a digital camera, like the one in a cell phone. Turn on the camera and point it at the remote. If you see a white light coming from the transmitter, the remote is sending a signal. Look for a stuck button.
