Getting channels set with out the remote

I bought a used TV from a store and told it wouldnt turn on. I get it home and it fires up and plays dvd's but when I hook the cable up to it I cant get the channels set. When I hit channel up and down I get differnt video options ( vid 1, cmpt1 ect. )...

When I called a TV repair guy he told me all I need to do is preset the channels for the tv by the sounds of it. Can anyone tell me how to do that without a remote??

Hello, we have an Orion DVD/TV combo and have no remote for it. Is there any way to play a DVD without the remote the Play button alone on the unit does not play the DVD from its menu? We live in...


Hello,
You should be able to do a channel search and come across the inputs either at the upper end or the lower end of the channel search. Using the channels on the TV itself, not cable or satellite, scroll through the channels until the desired input is found. Once on the desired input open the DVD player and insert a DVD and close the drawer. The DVD should start to play automatically. When it gets to the place on the DVD to actually "play movie" press the select/enter button on the remote. As for the replacement remote I would get a universal remote. They are far fairer in price than an original replacement remote and every bit as reliable. Just make sure to take the model of your TV/DVD player with you to make sure the remote you purchase is compatible. You probably need to go no further than your local hardware store or department store. Save on the shipping too. However if you are set on getting the original remote here is a place http://www.orion.newremotecontrol.com/catalog_item.php?catnum=076R0DT090 they also sell a few generic remotes for a few dollars less.
Regards, Tony

Prima HDTV has a black screen on TV, but works fine while Playing DVD


try turning the channel up or down with the tv remote to input 1 or 2 depending on which one is being used for the dvd player. tv should use input 1. dvd should be on input 2.
when turning the channel set it to show the dvd screen, then go up 1. if it doesn't show, return and go down 1.

Picture is fuzzy


Do you have a HIGH DEFINITION satellite / cable SERVICE? Unless you are specifically set up to receive HD - your picture will still be back around 400 lines - and both LCD and Plasma HD units are notorious for looking WORSE when viewing NON-HD PROGRAMMING.

Unless your DVD is capable up converting up to (pseudo) HD, don't expect much there either.

Not sure how the INSIGNIA is set up for inputs, but good old Wal*Mart sells a FANTASTIC UNIVERSAL REMOTE called AVEX that is an absolute JOY to program and work with - and it's only about $20!

Put a DVD in your player and turn it on and let it play. I doubt that you are actually looking for a "CHANNEL" - but instead an *input* that is electronically controlled by your tv.

Go to the "TV" position on your remote and find the "INPUT" button. Pressing it should bring up a menu of different inputs that your tv has. Use your center UP/DOWN button to switch inputs until you see your DVD playing through one of them.

Can't get to "Video 1" to play DVDs


try turning your dvd player on and then doing a channel search if that does not work just buy a RF modulator and hook up your dvd player to it and it will run on channel 3 or 4 and will switch over by itself when you turn on your dvd player

I am stuck on channel 2


some tv's default to channel 2 after being unplugged.since it is a older tv ,the buttons on the remote and the tv maybe worn down.on the tv itself try pushing the buttons down a liitle harder. if you have aux or line in/video inputs,scroll down on the channel button to log into a aux channel for the dvd player.as for the remote try buying a cheap universal remote to see if that works.
good luck
