Question about Sanyo DS27510 27" TV
The tv is stuck on video mode - I bought a universal remote - but it didnt work...please help.
Have a universal remote. Son turned TV on Video1 to play Gamecube. TV is stuck on Video1.
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!!!!

Try pressing the Input button on the remote. This is the TV/VCR button. If this doesnt work, go to Walmart and buy a RCA Unversal Remote. Then press the Input button. This fixed mine.

I have a Sanyo DS27580 TV that our RCA RCR311w remote had no trouble putting into video mode, but it wouldn't take it out for some reason. I tried all the RCA codes for Sanyo without any help. I tried a GE univ. remote but just got basic functions, then just before buying another I found an old Philips PHDVR8L universal remote and code 506 allowed toggling the video/tv mode. I've tried all the RCA codes for Sanyo I can find but can't repeat the problem so there must have been some other code in the remote that worked.

I also had this problem. Tried a universal remote and it did not work....then I tried my JVC RM-SVS701U DVD remote and I was able to switch out of Video mode. Just try different Universal remotes you might have...I used 13 as the TV code.

Okay, I had the Exact same problem, I bought a Philips universal remore and it worked great when my tv was stuck on normal channels. But when it was on Video1 and I dropped the remot by accident, the remote reseted. So I was stuck on video 1 for awhile, but I started to mess with the menu, and of course there was nothing there that changed it from video 1 to normal channels...until...I hit the Channel Set button, and it gave me the options add/delete. Well I hit that and Boom! it brought me back to normal channels again, so it was easy sealing from there to get my control working. Hope this helps!

We had a sanyo tv that was stuck on video mode and we did not have the original remote. I bought an AVEX R6 universal remote for $20 from walmart and it worked. use the auto search method. We were very suprised that it worked because everything we read and even the customer service dept at sanyo said No universal remote can take it off video mode.

I have had the same problem for days on my tv, and was very frustrated! I pulled some of the info from different sources here and wound up flipping through the channels using the up and down buttons on my 'clicker' that works with my dish network device. Went up to 10, then back to 03, and there it was! It worked! You all rock, big time!

Anyone have any other ideas on how to fix the stuck on video?. nothing worked so far!

Have you tried hitting the channel up button on the television?
It seems that if you can change to video 1 then changing back would be an option.
If there is a menu button on the television, then locating the antenna source could be in there.
