Re: rca tv and rca remote

Is the remote control the one that came with the set or is it a universal? If the remote came with the tv, it may have a bad internal rubber pad board ( not fixable ), if it's a universal remote, you may need to change the code of add the codes for the dvd. The dvd and the tv work internally on seperate codes. I hope this has helped

Where is the eject button on RCA universal remote for DVD?

Universal remotes do not necessarily replicate all functions of an OEM remote. EJECT is commonly not one of them. You may have to eject right at your Magnavox combo.

Need a code please for tecknica tv 25-56D

1. Yes, a universal remote will work just fine. Buy a universal remote and then one by one, try the following codes until you find the correct one: 000,001,004,005,008,009,013,042,051,053,058,105,109,170,174.

2. Maxell is a recording disk and often times cannot be played on certain DVD players.

Rm-995 instruction

That Sony remote may if batteries removed erase what it was programmed for (several minutes) and should have program instructions on it--if not try to Google the model number of the remote for "manual" which will among other things tell you how to do what you want---Sony on their consumer site may have that manual for free or direct you to a place that does.

I want to know how to swich the tv to wach dvd player? the remote works with the tv but how can i swich to wach a movie....i dont want to set up the remote to the dvd...

Sounds like you need to change the input channel of your TV with your TV remote. Look for an Input or Video Source button. Once you've found it, insert a DVD then cycle through the inputs with that button until you see something on the screen. As always this could be undermined by incorrect connections to and from and the DVD player. Double check these as always!

Auxillary channel for dvd

You need to determine what output options your DVD player has. Take a look at the rear of the player. It will certainly have RCA jacks for video and audio outputs (yellow for video, red and white for right and left channel audio). It may also have RCA jacks for component video (marked Y, Pb and Pr). Finally, it may have a threaded connector marked "out to TV" or "antenna out" or something similar. This is called RF output.

Most players today don't offer RF output because nearly every TV has direct AV inputs available. If your DVD player has RF output, connect the output connector to the TVs antenna input. You need a coaxial cable with F-connectors on the ends. One may have been supplied with the player. RF output is on channel 3 or 4, set by a switch on the back of the player or by its on-screen setup. Just set the TV to that channel to watch a DVD.

If your player doesn't have RF output, you connect it to the TV using the AV jacks. You need cables with RCA plugs to to connect the video and audio from the player to the TV. Then you switch the TV to its video input to watch the DVD.

This is where you might run into problems. Many TVs need the original remote control to switch inputs. (Some older RCA sets used channels 90, 91 and 92 to switch to their video inputs so any remote would work, but these sets were made before 125-channel tuning became standard. If your set is one of those models, those are the auxiliary channels you heard about.) If you can't switch the set to video input with front panel buttons and you don't have the right remote, you're not completely out of luck.

If you can't use your set's AV inputs or it just doesn't have any, you need an RF converter. These cost around $15. They take the audio and video from the DVD player and convert it to channel 3 or 4. Then you hook that output to your TV as described above.

Unable to get remote to switch to tv/video RCA remote tv is sanyo

It took me forever to figure it out. Press the input key, just below the 9. The TV channel should be on 3. Make sure you put your DVD in and press play manually, so you can see that it is on.

Hope that helps

No code search button

Turn on your TV, hold down tv or vcr/dvd depending on what you want to program. Then enter the codes this site gives you. Then release tv or vcr/dvd and see if your remote will change the channels.
