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

My input button will not bring up the selection of options it should bring up.I cannot play any dvds without using the opton button on my remote. what am i doing wrong?

First of all, is this the first time experiencing this problem? Second, which remote are you referring to that has the 'input button', the TV's or DVD?

You also make reference to an, 'input button, and then an, 'opton button'? What is the difference between them?

In my situation, my TV's remote is used to toggle back and forth between an external source (i.e, DVD or VHS players), and regular TV.

MY TV remote has a 'TV/VIDEO' button, which when pressed allows me to display either 'video-1, video-2, or back to watching TV programs. In my experience, it has always been either a 'source or TV/Video button located on the TV remote that controls all external sources being viewed on the TV.

Also, a simple thought, are the batteries starting to fail. I have noticed that pressing remote buttons and not having something occur right away could be the batteries.

Just installed roku3 to TV. I want to watch regular local tv . How do I switch from Roku options to my regular viewing and then back to Roku later?

There should be a 'Source' or 'Input' button on your TV's remote. Press on that button and it will display your active Audio/Video sources, probably as HDMI ports. Identify which one is your TV and which one is your Roku and then press the 'Select' button on the remote.

The remote just magically stopped working, even after new battery

Have you tried pressing the 'input' button again this time to switch from video to tv? This happens in quite a few cases where 1 remote is used for many products. Please try and let me know.

Is the SAA7130 able to be hooked to a tv set, and can I then watch internet programees such as Hulu through it

The only way I know of is to buy an LCD TV most of them can be used as a computer monitor. I just helped a friend hook up a new Samsung. It only takes one button on the remote to switch from regular tv to computer to watch hulu he loves it.

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.

TV will turn on, but not respond

Good Day, mistymiles;

Try this before calling a factory authorized service center:

Press " menu 2 > 4 > 7 > 0 > enter", on remote. After settings have been initialized > press the system reset button on the front, once the LED stops blinking > reprogram settings and tuner channels (if not using box). IF NOT fixed call for service (get estimate before repair) and suspect repair of DM PCB (printed circuit board).

Good Luck, big IRISH.

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.

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
