Some universal remotes are not really universal. Some functions of your device may not work.

The AV button from my remote isn't working at all.I bought a new one but the catalog doesnt have Cosmo Communication TV brand.I would like to know what code I need to put so the AV can appear on the TV.

Read the manual that came with the remote. Most of the time you can find your device when you put the remote in a "search" mode and then you have to press a button several times, till the TV switches off. Then press anything again and your remote should be set up. Something like that should be on the remote for setup. When the TV responds, check all buttons, to see if any of the keys switches the AV.

I have a 27N-S100 TV. It was given to me with no remote. The Cable plug thing in the back is completely broken off, but I was told the TV could work perfectly by using the 3 colored cables (I believe they...

What you're trying to do shouldn't work unless the VCR has a digital tuner in it or your cable company still hasn't converted over to digital as of yet. You will need to get a digital cable box from your cable company.

Connect the av cables to either the front or back of the television. I believe the front is av/video 2 and the back is av/video 1. You have to choose either video 1 or video 2 from the television's menu in order to access these parts of your television.

Connect the cable box to the other end of the av cables and you should be all set. You would change channels with your cable remote and always leave the Sharp television on video or

What you're trying to do: Connect the cable to where it says in on the back of the vcr. and connect the av cables to the vcr where it says out. You will have to do a channel scan on the vcr.

How do I put the GE remote xs stereo monitor into input mode without the remote?

A good universal remote to use with that monitor is the RCA RCRN04GR, available at WalMart. I recently bought a 25" GE Remote Monitor XS Stereo from a Days Inn that was replacing all of those monitors with Flat Screen TV's. When I got it home I found that it would not go to channel 4 which was default with my COX Digital Cable Box. Channel 3 is the default channel on the monitor, so I ran an AV cable from the cable box, disconected the coax and hooked up the AV cable to the back of the TV and that solved the problem. I hope that answer was helpful.

Hi Gerald P, just posted we experienced same problem. Few minutes later my husband has finally solved our problem. Don't know whether you can try the same. We had an old FOXTEL remote, got onto FOXTEL site and instructions how to program remote to control TV.

Dowloaded instructions with code for TV (after trying a few tries, the fifth code solved it). FOXTEL control needs to be programmed with the code suitable to TV. By pressing "ON", "AV", Red button and Select (at same time) then put code in. Turn "OFF" then "ON" see if code complies. If not try another one until you get it.

By using the FOXTEL remote on the "AV" you can change the channels on the TV and adjust volume up or down as well.

Hope this can help you in your situation. Glad we are up and running again. Bye
