Re: can't get video option off tv

Don't see what kind of tv you have. Look on the remote to see if there is an input or source button. If it is there you must have a remote that works. Sometimes depending on the remote you can take the remote apart and clean and dry with rubbing alcohol and try again

The power went out and my RCA tv needs to have the time set to continue watching. But the remote does not work, and I can't access the menu from the tv

If the remote control doesn't work, just buy one RCA RCR model universal remote control. Without remote control, you can't set the time to this set.

Front Audio Video inputs not working

What model TV is it?
it may be you need to change the input to video 1 or video 2 to get those front jacks to work. if there is a TV/Video button on the front you should be set. If not you may need the remote control. Sometimes changing the channel to below channel 1 will give you that option.

Sanyo tv stuck on "video 2"

I had the same problem and had to buy a new remote. Just Google Sanyo remote--it's the more expensive one with more buttons. Good luck.

Sanyo stuck on video mode

Yippie, I figured out a solution that worked!!! I have a univeral remote from comcast, on that remote near the bottom left is a small button that says (input) tv/vcr, press that one time and whala!! the tv video screen was gone, I had to manually change the channel from the tv channel button on the unit. once I changed the channel to 3, my universal remote worked... the button is the second one from the bottom left... I was on hold with sanyo for a long time and just kept trying on my own, so good luck!!!!

Video mode

I went to add/delete channels in my menu on my symphonic and it let me scroll through the channels, make sure you have them all set to add (by pushing the volume buttons to make them light blue instead of purple)....after adding all of your channels (or just the one if you use dish) just power the tv off while on a channel and then power back on and you should have tv.

if you have a sky remote or know someone who does you could try programming it by using one of these codes, try them all one at a time

Sanyo 0159, 236, 073, 100, 064, 174, 185, 367, 039, 245, 246, 398, 241, 572, 583, 037, 132, 182, 244, 191

TV screen on video 2 and remote died

The only way your going to change the video mode is with the original remote. If you need another remote go to or call 1800 remotes Theres a button on the upper left hand side of the remote called video mode. A universal most of the time will not work this function. You could ask around to your friends and buddies or relitives if anyone has a working Sanyo remote or go to a local retailer that sells Sanyo and see if he would let you borrow one for a little while so you can switch out of the video mode. Good Luck
