Resetting the TV If the
buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do
not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped
responding. Reset the TV as follows:
NOTE: Some TVs have a reset
button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before
using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time. 1.Unplug the TV
power cord from the power outlet. 2.Unplug any
connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...) 3.Press and hold
the TV power button for five seconds. 4.Plug the TV
power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV. 5.Open the
on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again. 6.Turn off the TV
and reconnect the devices. 7.Turn on the TV.
Find the button that relates to the input you want to view. IE "video" "composite" "s-video"
Or simply try any of the input buttons until the picture returns.
Also try simply hitting the VGA button again.
If none of that works, please let me know the model number of the tv and the input sources you are trying to view.
Universal remote alway work only the basic for the tv.Beyond that will have problems or stuck in some input or modes.Sorry i can't help u, because i don't know what is the reaction to ur tv by the universal remote,must use the universal remote again tries all the buttons like video modes or input botton.Or take the battery out like 20 mins of the universal remote to erase ur tv codes enter it again.Tries those buttons u pushes before,see if u can get out the video mode.All else fail.Try website like Remotes.com to buy the tv original remote to use.
Using the TV's remote and having the TV on, hold down the "reset" button and manually turn off the TV directly from the unit.(not the remote) Release the "reset" button. Turn the TV back on-directly from the unit.(not the remote) A dialog box will appear on your screen. Choose "Auto" by pushing the + on Channel Selection button on the unit (not the remote). Use the TV/DVD selection to return to your cable input.
There should be a button on your remote denoting "Input." If you connect the DVD player to the TV on "video input 1" then push the input button on the remote or TV itself until the DVD appears on your TV (which will be Video 1). Some TVs must have the component (in your case) the "DVD" player connected to the TV before the TV will recognize it. Make sure the DVD is powered up and then push the input button until the DVD player appears on the TV. Depending on your TV inputs, there may be multiple inputs like, Video, Component, DVI, or HDMI. The above are listed in the respective order of "quality." HDMI being the best. Whatever input you hook the DVD player up to on the TV will be the "input" you will look for when pressing the input button. Hope this helps.
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!!!!
First check for a button which is stuck down (activated) on the TV & remote. I have seen a stuck button on a remote box continually sending a command to the TV.
Also, try unplugging the set so the microprocessor will reset.
