Look on the remote for keys that are labled tv/vcr or source or input... In fact, if you go to the front of the unit - that's a Sanyo right - find the grouping of buttons that change the channel, volume etc.. There should be a button marked source or input there.. Press it as many times as it takes to get back to the input source your cable is on...
If you have any problems let me know...

Can't change channel from video 1

You might need the remote to change from video to tuner. Try buying a cheap univeral remote from Radio Shack.

All Ihaveis blue screen

You need to change the source (original remote) or the input (univeral remote). It needs to be in TV mode - not video.

Try with the channel up/down on the TV or look inside the configuration menu, if your set has one.

Sanyo DS31590 31" TV Can I get the tv to go into tv/video mode without a remote but from the tv menu directly?

Nope. Remote control is required... However some universal remotes come with this button available in the preprogrammed code. I had a cheap GE universal remote that I used to replace the original when my 2 year old smashed it. I now have a sony universal remote and it's default code (one of them) for Sanyo tv's also works for the video/input button.

Tv is stuck in video mode

The best thing to do is get an original replacement remote and then you will absolutely be able to enter the menu and perform the autoprogram.
