Instead of spending money on a repair, try by-passing problem =
Hook-up from yellow,red and white out of source box into
yellow,red and white on the back of tv = select that input...T.

Moved tv to another room turns on but cant get pic from sat


Hey there, this is Cheri Torres with DISH Network customerservice. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could be of someassistance. I do have few questions about your system that would help me togive you a better answer on what you will need to do to resolve this issue. Iwould first like to know what type of DISH Network receiver you have; youshould be able to find the model number on the front left side of your receiverbox. Is the type of receiver you have a dual receiver (plays two TVs from onereceiver)? Did you also move the receiver into a different room along with yourTV? If you are working with TV1 (the TV that is in the same room as yourreceiver) you are going to want to make sure your TV is either on channel 3 or4, or that it needs to be on a input (i.e. video 1, video 2, input 3 etc.). Youcan usually determine this by checking which type of cables you have. If youhave coax cables (black cable with silver end that you can screw into the TV)the TV will need to be set to channel 3/4. If the cables are RCA cables (yellow,white and red) or a HDMI cable (black cable with thin end) the TV will need tobe set on an input. For TV2 the second TV off of your receiver which should neverbe in the same room as the receiver the channel should be set for either 60 or73. I hope you find this information useful and if you are able to answer thequestions I would be able to help you a lot more with this issue. Feel free topost back here with a response or you can also email me atCheri.Torres@Dishnetwork.com. :)

Puppy completely destroyed our remote,we have dish network also, in the process of eating remote she changed setting to cable and it needs to be on analog,so therefore all that is on screen is fuzz. Is...


With the other Mintek remote that is still intact first try to change the channel on the smaller Mintek television. Usually the remotes have a . or - in order to accommodate analog or digital channels. So directv is usually channel 3.0/3-0 or channel 60.0/60-0 or sometimes another channel as advised by direct tv. Try pressing 03 first or 60/61/whatever channel you are supposed to be on. If that doesn't work try 3.0/3-1 and then the enter/ok key. Try the channel up and down button as well.

My Harmony 890 remote has a difficult time inputing numbers


Hi. This problem is caused because the 'repeat' setting on the device that you use to change channels (TV or cable box) is too high.

1. In the software, click 'Troubleshoot' next to the icon for the device that you change channels on.
2. Select '<device> responds to some commands either too many times or only occasionally' and click NEXT.
3. Decrease the setting by one (the default is usually 3).
4. Update your remote and test it.

RCA DTA800 TV Converter Box I need TV codes for the remote to work. The TVs are a GE, phillips magnabox


Good day,
I might be missing something, but you are describing a converter box that converts digital signals from an antenna to analog.
The converter box will be set to channel 3, and you should set your tv's to channel 3 as well.
Using the remotes that came with the tv's go into setup and if available as an option, you will find an option to select cable/antenna or automatic. Select automatic or antenna and save. If there is a selector switch on the back of the tv's, set to 3.

Connect antenna cable into input, and use supplied cable to connect from the output of the converter to your tv.

plug in power supply for converter box, tune tv to channel 3 then follow instructions to setup converter box including channel scan.
When done, the converter remote will control everything. However, the tv volume control will work even though the converter remote will have volume as well. The tv remote as well is needed to shut off or turn on tv. These functions can on most tv's be performed on the set as well.

No codes are required. The converter remote will work on any tv.

If you want to use both tv's then you will need a splitter on the output of the converter to send the signal to both tv's. Only one channel can be viewed at a time.

Viewing separate Chanel's requires a second converter box and a splitter connected to the antenna cable for viewing separate channels.

More options are possible, but I hope this helps you get started.
The converter box takes place of the tv's tuner and in essence disables it.

I have a rca dvd recorder+vcr combo drc8320n i want to set up watching/changing cabletv channels on the dvd remote. i have tried buying universal remotes cheap& expensive but they no longer work on my


With cable input connected to "RF in"on rear of unit make sure vidoe input is set to "Tuner". This will show up on the TV screen. Change channels numerically or using up/down arrow keys on DVR remote. Note there is a slight pause between changing channels.You probably will have to "autoscan" for channel setup/etc. If you say your TV set is old; it probabaly is equiped with coax
connection only/set TV channel to "3" or "4". when yot opt to play vcr/dvd it will override your
cable channel selected. Hope this helps!

Can't get channels I just got cable


Call your cable company! Whoever installed your cable did not set up your remote or give you one of their remotes. Most of the time your tv must be set on channel 3 or 4 and your tv has to be set to cable. Then you can use your remote or the cable company's remote.

Thanks but i need more help


Don't be panic.
Check the batteries of your remotes control. FIRST
Be sure to aim the control to the sensor of your tv.

Usually you have one remote for your tv and the other to control the cable box or digital box.

You have to set the RMC10 again using the code of your tv Silvania (like the first time)
Then set your tv on channel 3


Another thing, be sure that you are hitting the right buttons.
The control doesn't work if you hit on the top any key instead of cable
What i mean?

The remote has on the top 4 key usually (tv, cable, vcr, aux, etc).
You must hit first cable to set the control to cable

1, Manually turn on the device(TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
2. Press and hold the code search button until the red indicator stays on, then release the code search button.
3. Press and quickly release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, ect.). The red indicator blinks off once.
4. Press the Channel up button repeatedly(up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks off with each button press. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press channel down button to backtrack through the library until device changes channel. Pressing Channel up changes direction forward again.
5. Press and release Mute to install code.

Snowy picture, no reception?


Hi, Your question "Do bigger TV's need an aerial booster or something?" - No, normally it should work straight out. Boosters are used for fringe location not bigger TV. Pls a questions and some ideas: 1. "TV worked fine the night before" was it hooked up to Cable or aerial? 2. If cable, it is necessary that you change the settings of the TV from cable to STD or Air or something like that. Normally this can be done via the remote, menu, setting, set-up; 3. If aerial, you would probably need the assistance of a qualified service personnel. Apparently something got loose inside the Philips TV, not a big problem because you can still receive (BBC 1) but not the other channels, possibly a loose wiring, a disconnected connector. 4. If you feel comfortable working on it yourself, unplug the tv and the aerial, open the back and poke around. Trace from the aerial jack, the lead wires used, the connector to the main circuitry. Wiggle the wires a bit for any loose connection. 5. If #4 is not to your liking or if you do not find anything or no significant improvement after closing it up and running it again, guess you're back to #3. Hope this gives you some idea. Lots of luck and kind regards from the Philippines.
