Continuous Channel Searching & Power Button Issues

I'm having several problems with my tv. First, as of today I can only turn it on using the remote, not the power button on the tv itself. When I do turn it on, it goes automatically into DVD mode, but when I switch the mode to tv, it goes through a blue screen channel search, climbing into the 100s, briefly flashing a picture on channel 2, then goes back into the search endlessly. I can only turn off the tv at that point by unplugging it. Is it the tv? My cable? Please help!

What source are you using? If cable, you should only be able to pickup channel 3 or 4 if you're using the box. If there is no antenna, that would be the only other answer if the set checks out...accordianman

Samsung 42 flat screen 1080 we can't get rid of closed caption


The closed caption option is--or should be--a function of the TV. You should be able to turn that off by pressing the button that's marked cc, ccd, or closed captions that is on your original Samsung TV remote. Press the button until the word "off" appears and then stop.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Zenith TVBR1352Z TV/VCR combo. I cannot get a code to allow my Philips/Direct TV remote to control the TV/VCR. All I really need it to do is control the volume


Turn on your TV (or other device). You will have to do this manually until you program your Philips remote control

Look for the "Setup" or "Code Search" button on the Philips remote control. Which button your remote has will depend on the exact Philips remote control you are using. This button may be a different color or may be labeled.

Hold either the "Setup" or "Code Search" button for about 10 seconds. If your remote has a light, the light should begin blinking. If there is no light, you can just count to 10 and then let go of the button.

Press the "TV" button on the remote to program the Philips remote to your television set

Find and press either the "Up" or "Down" channel button on the remote. Continue pressing either button until the television channel changes. This may take several minutes. Once the channel changes, press the "Power" button on the remote to turn off the TV. Your Philips remote will now be programmed to your television.

New remote won't program to switch to cable input.


That's a problem with universal remote controls. Often they don't control every function of the TV. They just don't have the buttons needed to control everything the original remote did. You'll have the most basic controls - power, channel and volume up and down - and maybe a menu button. But you'll frequently find other things don't work, like switching inputs. There isn't anything you can do except try all the codes for your TV brand and see what each button does. You might find that the buttons have different functions depending on which code you've entered. You might also look for another brand of universal remote that has more functions available.

Tv on/off and volumn don't work on my dish remote


Hello,

If you are trying to use a Dish Network remote control, then you are probably out of luck. Most Dish remotes do not have remote codes for TV/DVD or TV/VCR combos. There are just too many codes out there to put into one remote control. I'm sure they tried to walk you through a code search (hold the TV button down, etc.), so if it didn't show up then, then you are probably stuck with using two remotes or adjusting manually.

If they didn't try a code search, then try this:

Turn the TV on manually. Then, press and hold the clear TV button at the top until all the buttons at the top turn red, then release. Press and release the TV power button (the smaller red power button), and press the channel up button. Repeatedly press and release the channel up button about once a second until the TV turns off by itself, then press and release the # button at the bottom right hand corner of the remote, and the TV button will flash 3 times, confirming that it took the code. Press and release the clear SAT button at the top left, and then you should be good to go.
If the TV never turns off during the code search, and the TV button at the top of the remote flashes a bunch of times everytime you press channel up, then there are no more remote codes. The remote does not have the code for your TV.

Hope this helps you.

Remote will not work


No wonder I don't find Emersons anywhere. You can try this , use a TV/AUDIO cable from the back of your cable box to the front inputs. Then use the channel button until you get LINE. You will get TV signal but you still have to turn it ON/OFF manually. Same goes for VOLUME. Good luck.

Sylvania 6313CB 13" TV/VCR replacemnt remote


We have a Sylvania 6313CB TV/VCR combo.  I bought a universal remote and the code would not work when I tried to program it to the "TV" button using all those possible codes listed in the books.  So, on the universal remote, there was a button named "VCR" and when I programmed in the code "0000" all worked.  This was a $6.00 universal remote named "One For All"  we bought at the Big Lots store.  
Specifically, here is what I did:
Turned TV on Pushed the "VCR" button and light blinked once Pushed and held the "set" button until it blinked twice Released the "set" button and entered the numbers "0000" Pushed the on/off button and it worked including volume, channel up/down and channel change by entering the channel number.
Hope this works for you too.

DTV remote code


KZXten,

Don't know if this will help but I have Comcast as my cable TV provider and am using a Motorola DCT-6200 STB and the remote Comcast provides with the STB. To get my Panasonic TV/VCR combo (PVQ-2510A) to work with the Comcast remote I had to do the following:

1) Do the remote code search in AUX mode (or VCR or DVD mode if your remote has that button instead) using the instructions for searching ing remote codes. I had to toggle back and forth between AUX and POWER on the remote until the TV turned off. I saved that code on the remote, but it only controlled the power on the TV, not the volume control.

2) Next I did the remote code search using the TV button on the remote and toggled between the TV button and the volume control until the volume +/- bar appeared on the screen. I saved that code too.

I use the AUX button to turn the TV on and off. Once the TV is on the volume control on the remote operates the TV volume normally. I still need to toggle between CABLE and AUX depending on which device I'm controlling, the cable Set Top Box (STB) or the TV. You may have to experiment some to get it to work correctly.

Here's a link to the remotes Comcast is providing in my area.
