Setting the TV to the video input without a remote

What if we can't get a replacement remote ? There doesn't seem to be a way to do it from the tv's "video" or "setup" menu. Is there a way ?

I had this TV and lost the remote too. However, Walmart carried the exact same remote that came with the TV.

Direct TV remote "tv input" button won't work with my Sony TV

I came across this looking for a similar solution for my Samsung TV, and I found the solution on Apparently after you program the remote for your TV you have to hold mute and select again until it flashes twice then put in 960 to make the remote control TV input too. Note you're remote should be in TV mode while you do this. It seems silly that the DirectTV guy wouldn't do this when programming the remote.

How can I input my sylvania 27" into video 1 or video 2 without the remote? The menu does not offer a game option nor a video 1 or video 2 option.

Here are the instructions for the TV.
They do not say how to select Video or Game mode without the remote. Try connecting a vcr or game to the input and do the Channel Pre-Select process to see if that will pick up the input as part of the Channel Scan. If it does you will be able to get to Game or Video using the channel up/down buttons. Another option is to get a replacement universal remote that has a code for your TV and will assign a button for Game or Video.

Is There a way to go to video/input without a remote.

My answer will be generic.

With many of these TV sets the original factory remote is required to change the input mode of the set, or to access any of the user menus.

On some models of sets, putting the channel selection down to below channel 2, puts the TV in to the external input modes.

How does one change the video inputs without the remote control?

If you have lost the remote, go to any electronics store and buy a universal one. I have programmed many generic remote controls, and they all work fine for adjusting the video inputs. Not all television sets allow their video inputs to be switched without the remote. Most likely you will have to buy a replacement.

External input

I'm not overly familiar with your brand, but generally there are 2 ways to get to the AV input.

1) Use the TV/Video button on the remote (if there is one)
2) Channel up or down from the last channel at the high or low end. In other words: channel down from channel 2 may bring you to the AV input.

Hope this helps,

Input Selection without a Remote

On either the front of the TV or a universal remote (which I assume you have already programmed) hit the MENU button. Go to option 4 "Channel". Go down to "List and Labels." Hit the CH up or down key until you see "FRNT" come up under the channel # heading. If your DVD is connected and playing, you'll see it playing now. Exit the menu to watch. You'll have to reverse the process to get back to watching TV, but there doesn't seem to be any way around this if you don't have your RCA remote. This process is guaranteed to work on an F27442 and will probably work on some other RCA models.

Check in the TV menu, there should be a "Input" submenu that will let you change between the Tuner/Video/SVideo inputs.
