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.
In the upper left hand corner of the DirecTv remote there is a button labeled "TV INPUT" just push that button. Each time you push it it will change the inputs for the TV. If that is not the problem, the remote needs to be programmed with a code for your TV. If that is the case push the MENU button under the circle in the middle of the remote. Scroll down to PARENTAL, FAV'S, & SETUP, push the yellow SELECT button in the middle of the circle, scroll down to SYSTEM SETUP, then scroll down to REMOTE and push the yellow SELECT button again. From there you should be right as rain. On my TV and setup, I have a device hooked up through DVI, but the TV won't recognize it unless it is powered on. In otherwords when pressing the TV input on my DirecTv remote it doesn't show the DVI device (PS3) unless it is powered on. I hope this helps and good luck. Please vote and leave a message.
Sounds like the input accidentally got changed. On the remote that came with the TV, push the INPUT button until you get your satellite picture again. If your SAT. remote is programmed to your TV, push the TV button, then the input button until you see your picture. If this doesn't work then the sat. cable is not securely attached or no longer works.
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!!!!
Look on the remote for keys that are labled tv/vcr or source or input... In fact, if you go to the front of the unit - that's a Sanyo right - find the grouping of buttons that change the channel, volume etc.. There should be a button marked source or input there.. Press it as many times as it takes to get back to the input source your cable is on...
If you have any problems let me know...
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.
