Can not access menu from universal remote

When I program in my universal remote, I can not access the menu. I get there and the buttons dont work to scroll. The original remote is broken in half and can not use it. How can I get through the menu without a remote?

    I have the same problem. The original remote is missing so purchased a universal. I cannot access the menu to program. Toshiba says universal remotes are not compatible so to purchase a Toshiba remote by calling a parts distributor in Miami. I live in Georgia. Not very helpful!

How can i scan supersonic tv without a remote


Many universal remotes have a code database that you can use to access at least the basic tv functions. I'm assuming you are asking how to program a universal remote when you do not have the original remote. If you are asking how to program stations via buttons on the TV, there is probably a menu button to get in the main menu, then use the channel up/down and volume up/down buttons to navigate the menu.

Tip

Acessing Menu with universal remote


We used a One4All model URC3021BOO remote. We programmed BOTH the TV function and the DVD/vcr button with code 0807.  To access the menu PRESS TV then MENU button then DVD/VCR button will allow you to change menu functions using left and right and select buttons. *TV button will access Menu screen BUT NO menu functions. * DVD/VCR button will NOT access menu screen but WILL control menu functions if menu is already displayed. May work with other sharp products, or other universal remotes? These original (RRMCG1330PESA) remotes run 38.00+ to buy new so try this FIRST!

My ge universal remote is already programmed to my


A universal remote isn't a replacement for the original. The idea of these is to perform the basic functions of up to several pieces of electronic equipment to simplify life and reduce armchair clutter.

When the menu needs accessing it will be time to reach for the original remote.

If the original is lost or broken a dedicated replacement will need to be bought. I bought one from Amazon for my tv for little more than a universal.

How can i access the menu without the remote control?


On older Televisions such as the one you have listed, you cannot access those menus without a remote control. Just to make sure I skimmed the user manual found here. The only suggestion I have is to get a universal remote with a menu button. Dont forget to check with your other remotes to see if they have universal functionality. Most receivers (surround sound units) have multi-function remotes. Also check your satellite or cable remotes to see if they have universal functions. You can tell, because they will have multiple buttons that say things like "TV, AUX, CABLE, ETC" If so, you can program one of these remotes (or grab one at most electronics stores to program) and have your menu available to you.

Also, check the link to make sure there isnt some functionality hidden away that I didnt see.

Cheers!

Original remote lost. have universal remote. cannot program TV


On the right hand side of this television there are panel buttons. It appears that your son in law knocked the tv out of the correct input. Press the input button in order to cycle through the 5 inputs. Typically pressing the input button on the side panel of a television and pressing it again and again and again will make it change inputs. Universally the buttons on the tv panel function as follows: Channel up moves the cursor up. Channel down moves the cursor down. Volume + moves the cursor right. Volume - moves the cursor left.
Hope this helps

I cant get SAP off the tv


Access your menu, and navigate through.

Look for the Audio option then something with the words "SAP" or "Secondary Audio Programming"
then, of course, change it to mono or stereo.

With your universal, press the "TV" button or the button you would press to have it communicate with your TV, then press menu or settings.

Can't turn subtitles off


I want to thank whomever suggested the following...it works. I had been trying for days. Here is the solution:
Turn off the cable box and hit the menu button on the universal remote. The screen with the closed caption selection appears. Scroll down to the line regarding subtitles and turn it off.
