Re: Remote Control Menu

Acquire universal remote.
acquire exact replacement from mfg if avail.

no alternative if your remote is destroyed.
based on your need to access menus with it.

then hope your dog develops a taste for something else.

to that, my dogs chew bully sticks. it satisfies their need to chew. which is a really big drive. and they cost a bit, but last a long time.
and its cheaper than replacing remotes and furniture, shoes and other things.
and your dog will be extremely happy.
costc has started carrying them.
most pet stores carry them.
they are also known as pizzle.
you really don't want to know more about them.
they will keep your dog happy when otherwise bored.

good luck
have a happy dog.

How do I access the menu from the tv touch panel as the remote isn't working

Hi Susan,
There is a menu button in almost every tv's touch panel. Please press it to access the menu.
Unfortunately if your TV does not have a menu button, there is no way you can access the menu without a remote control.

Controls not working onDaytek TV, 40 in LCD,

yes, look carefully in the manual as I think it has a lock out feature that will lock out both keyboard on set and remote except for on off features.

Cant get the remote to work for menu options just started setting it up already programed to my direct tv remote now nothing is working or either remote t.v or direct tv remote

To diagnose a remote control problem follow these steps.

1) unplug the TV power cord, count to five and plug it back in. (reboot)
2) try to power on with ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER remote.

if that works- your TV and original remote are fine.

if that does not work:
4) try to power on with buttons on the TV itself- if it works- check your remote batteries and try remote again.

Direct TV and Dish Network remotes will ONLY operate SIMPLE function of your TV such as power, volume, input.
They will NOT access your TV menu.

Our dog ate our remote control. Is there a code we can use to reset with a generic remote, as we need to reset for some channels

Well the reset on your dog probably won't work so it may eat another remote.

On the tv when you use a universal remote you enter a code for the remote. this lets it talk to the tv and should give you the same access to menus ie setup as the original. I don't see a tv model but when you get the universal it will have a list of all the codes. You just look up your manufacturer and then look for your model and enter the code. There may be a few codes per model so you just have to try each one until it works. Unfortunately for some off brand tv's the codes don't work but they are quite good for most. Your other alternative is of course getting a oem replacement.

And even with out a remote you can usually access the menus by pushing the buttons on the front of the tv. Its slow rather frustrating but should work if nothing else.

I have a flat screen Sanyo Model# ctl 2054 will a universal remote control work for this tv I don't have the orginal remote control?

Yes, a universal remote control should work on this TV since all remote controls utilizes infrared sensing technology. However, not all functionalities and features of your TV can be accessed using a universal remote control, thus only the basics like volume and channel controls but some advance features like menu setup might not work.

Are you sitting on the remote? Is your dog using the remote as a chew toy?
Just joking! Is your monitpr well ventilated? Some have overheating protection. Other is it could be the inverter circuit that powers the backlight is failing.
