Question about RCA TruFlat 27F520T 27" TV

1 Answer

Unable to access Front Input Connectors

I do not have the original remote, I am using the Universal Remote that come with my DVR. It has some limited control over the functions of the TV, however, it will not allow me to access the front input connectors. Do i need a remote specifically for this TV in order to access these ports? If so, how do I order one ASAP? I have a nephew who is about to spontaenously combust due to severe Wii Withdrawal.

I have a toshiba theater view sd tv but my phillips universal remote input button won't work and allow me to get to video one in order to play dvd player


Universal remotes offer limited functionality such as volume changes and channel changes, muting. Often, there is no working input function with those remotes and you have to get the original one for that to work. Ouch.

I have an esa tv model EF420E. What channel does it need to go on in order to watch DVD's and play on the Xbox?


I assume you have the DVD or XBox connected to the composite video or S-video ports on the EF420E. These can only be accessed with a remote control that has an Input button. The original remote had the Input button near the middle of the remote on the right side of the remote. Pressing it allowed you to toggle between TV, Video 1, and Video 2. If you do not have the original remote or the remote's Input button doesn't work, you need a replacement remote or an universal remote with an Input button. (Many of the cheapest universal remotes don't have this feature button included.) A replacement remote is available from http://remotes.com/store/esa/ef420e.html . They have the original remote and a guaranteed to work alternative. If you choose to get another universal remote, you may need to try multiple codes until the Input button works for your TV. (Try Funai codes, if ESA isn't a listed manufacturer.)

The ESA EF420E was built by Funai. The manual is available from Funai Service: http://www.funai-corp.com/support/manuals.aspx . The direct link to the manual is http://www.funai-corp.com/support/om/EF420E.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have an Orion TV Model TV1934A and no original remote for it. I have a few questions. Could a universal remote be used for it? Could a universal remote change the TV input mode? Is there any other...


You could try a universal remote and it might let you select the aux input on the front of the set. If this doesn't work you could try an RF modulator that would feed the signal from the device you want to view on the tv through the antenna jack on the back of the set. Electronics retailers in your area should have one. Follow the instructions that come with the RF modulator.
I hope this is some help to you.

Can't select front input without remote


I had the same problem, had a universal DirecTV remote that was able to control the volume/mute, power and channels (both TV and DirecTV), but the input button didn't work. There was no av/tv button on the front of the tv, and the autoregistration of channels didn't pickup the gamecube on the AV channel. What solved it was simply to press "00". I couldn't believe it, but it was that simple. Hope this helps you like it helped me, since the tv was not going to be of much use since we were using the RCA inputs, not the coax. Didn't want to try to conver the RCA to coax either.

Can't access video input channel


I believe you need the original remote to switch the input to video . I found the remote shown at PartStore.com with the original RCA part number 242524 at about $37.00 and also at MCMelectronics.com at around $31.00. There may be other sources also. Good luck.

You need the original remote controller to be able to switch input modes.Universal ones usually don't work. If you don't have the original remote and can't find it ever or if it is too expensive you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your dvd player, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4 and other cable channels are still working,

You can buy the RF Modulator from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180299245670
