It's unusual for these remotes to break down, but they often suffer from bent contacts in the battery slot.

When the battery is inserted with the tray, if makes contact with a spring terminal on the main board, and a spring terminal at the back of the battery.

First check that the replacement battery is the correct type. If the replacement is too fat, then the board spring has probably been flattened, otherwise the back spring has probably been pushed in.

Either way, its quite easy to fix.

Board Spring: using a thin wire, such as a paperclip or precision screwdriver. gently lift the two contacts from the back until they stay up from the board.

Back spring: using the same tool, hook into the loop on the contact, and gently pull forward.

This will ensure that proper contact is made when the battery is inserted.

Don't worry if you pull the contacts too far, because the battery will push them back.
In this case, remove the battery tray

Cant change from av to any input


First try a simple "reset":

1) Turn TV off. Unplug all TV inputs, and the AC plug from wall. Wait 5 minutes (I mean it, a full 5 minutes!).
2) Connect your normal TV source (cable or satellite) ONLY, then plug in and turn on the TV.
3) You may need to press the RESET key twice after connecting the signal and turning on the DTV to restore some functionality.

Now plug in ONE A/V component at a time to test. You can also try replacing any A/V cables (RCA red/yellow/white, HDMI, etc.), as cables do occasionally go bad.

Make sure TV is "tuned" to channel 3 before pressing the "input" button on remote control This is easiest done with the actual channel up/down buttons on the front of the television itself, or possibly by pressing 03 (or 03, Enter) on the remote control.

You may find that only one A/V input is bad (ex, VIDEO 1 port), while others work.. or they may all be bad.

If other functions of remote control are working (but "input" button still does nothing), could simply be a bad remote. Try eBay for a cheap replacement.

If there is not a manual "input" button on the TV itself (I think not for this particular model), and you still can't change AV input, you are probably out of luck. I recommend read included instruction manual carefully, then contact the manufacturer if needed. Instruction manual may be viewed at:
http://www.manualslib.com/manual/599522/Sanyo-Dp42746.html#manual

Do not attempt to disassemble TV. There are no user-serviceable parts inside, and even an unplugged TV can retain enough electricity (in capacitors, etc.) to seriously hurt a non-trained human. This TV is probably ~ 9 years old; parts are available (eBay, etc), but may not be worth fixing considering huge price drops on new TVs available now.

Screen view area or size, font and channel logo are too large and outside the viewing area, how do we reset ?


Using your cable remote or satellite tv remote as well as the one that came with the television itself. Press the hd zoom # button on the cable remote. Satellite tv remotes will have format or aspect. For satellite tv receivers you may have to go into the menu on the satellite tv box to adjust the picture format i.e. 1080i crop and etc.

Make sure you have the television on the right input for hd and that the cable box or satellite receiver is displaying 1080 i.

How do i get the TV to play satellite? it just says weak signal when I turn the tv on. JVC RM-C18G


It has to be on the right channel. If you are supposed to be on channel 3, 61, 73, 113 (ask the satellite company which one you should be on) then you'll have to change the channel. If you are not supposed to be on a channel you have to find out which input you're supposed to be on (video 1, video 2, video 3, av 1, av 2, av 3, hdmi 1, hdmi 2, input 1, input 2, input 3 for example).

I have a visco TV and I cannot get it off of channel 1. The remote does not work so I bought a universal remote but it still won't work. I tried to codes for NEC and Polariod as suggested by others,...


There should be channel buttons on the TV itself, try using those. Also, you may want to try changing the input from the Cable Box. 
I am curious as to why the remotes don't work. Also, how did it get onto channel one. Did you get the TV used?
Here is a link to the AV Science Forum. It seems other people have challenges with this TV as well.

I have a 26" fluid plasma T.V. I did not recieve


If this is the remote that goes with this television, and this is not a universal remote or one for a different model it does not need to be programmed. There is often a button on the remote that adjusts the picture size. It may be wide, format, view mode, aspect, zoom, and etc. This option may also be in the menu if there is no specific button for this task. However there are reasons that the screen size will not adjust even when pressing the proper button.

Now if you are using a cable box or satellite tv receiver there may be a button on your cable or satellite remote that will adjust the picture size. It is usually hdzoom # on the cable remote and format or aspect on the satellite remote. Picture format may also be in the cable box or satellite tv receiver's menu options.

However if you are connecting with an over the air antenna or direct cable and you are watching a high definition program this sometimes happens. You will not be able to adjust the screen size. Also if you are using a cable box or satellite tv receiver and it is set at a higher resolution than what the television is designed to display then this will happen and there will be no way to adjust the picture size. The cable box or satellite tv receiver could also be connected to your television with a coaxial cable to the rf/tv input. If you are in that input rather than the av, component, or hdmi input then this can happen.

I have a Akai TV1420 and I am trying to operate a DVD from it - but cannot find an AV button on the TV remote control. How can I find a channel to view DVDs?


Look for a button marked "source" or "input" on the remote. Alternatively, press the "menu" button and look for an option marked "source" or "input" and selevt AV1, AV2 or DVD. hope this helps.

How do i adjust the picture to fit the screen?


The wide button on your remote adjusts the picture size. Each time you press it you adjust the picture. If repeatedly pressing the wide button is not changing the picture size check you cable/satellite remote control. Look for the hdzoom# button. There may also be an aspect or format button. When you adjust this the picture size changes and between the Sony remote and the cable/satellite remote you should be able to come to a happy medium. If the picture size still isn't changing you might not be set to the correct resolution i.e. 1080i on your cable/satellite box. It might be set too low or you might be in the wrong input (av 1 av 2 hdmi 1 hdmi 2) etc.

You can program most satelite remotes to work on any device. Most are universal. If not, I suggest purchasing a universal remote. You can view remote codes online to program your device to your remote. New ones come with instrucions and codes.
