Dear FixYa customer,

You can verify the output of the remote by pointing it at your Camera phone. If you see a bright spot like a flash light then you know the IR beam is transmitting.

You will need the remote control "Input" button in order to get the "L"ine input on the VCR. What source are you trying to record from? There may be an alternative if the other device has RF output.

The original remote is no longer available, however, here is a link to a replacement that has the "Input " button.

Thank you

To play videogames on an old tv PLEASE HELP


You'll need to switch the TV into Video mode. Most TV sets will have a button on the front panel labelled "input" or "tv/video," and pressing this button will cycle through the various inputs your TV has.

Alternatively, this button may be located on your remote control.

Rarely, no button exists, and video input is selected by changing the channel below channel 2; as if you were trying to select channel 1. This will select the video input on sets without a separate input selector button.

I cant hook up the red,white, and yellow wires to my magnavox tv


If you mean that the TV doesn't have a set of composite video/audio jacks, then you need a converter for the inputs on the TV. (Most likely you need a video converter (RF modulator) that converts the game console composite video to RF (coax) and set the TV to channel 3 or 4 usually. RF modulators are available from stores like Radio Shack for $30.)

If you have a TV with a composite video input and can't get the game console to view, then there is a different problem. First try new cables. Switch your input as needed for both the TV and the game system. This will depend on the TV and if you have the original remote/unlocked front panel buttons on the TV or a substitute remote that maintains all of the features of the original remote. On some TVs you can cycle through to the A/V inputs by increasing (or decreasing) the channels until you are between channel 2 and the highest available channel. (This doesn't always work if the TV has been programmed to skip channels that previously had no signal.) Otherwise look for a Source or Input button on the remote or TV (or an OSD menu (sub menu) that lets you change the source).

I hope this helps.

Cant get picture or sound...Proscan 27113


You can tune to 90 for input 1 S-video, 91 for input 1 composite and 92 for input 2 composite only.
Most RCA and GE brand replacement remotes will work using code 000, or 001. I use code 237 for my 5 in 1 remote and can get PIP and the setup displays to work.

RCA Colortrak Stereo Monitor won't play DVD/Nintendo


The way you describe having your TV/DVD connected you wont see the picture in the regular channel line-up.
You will have to tell the TV to to switch to the video input. This is usually done by navigating the menu to the "input" and selecting video 1, video 2 etc
Failing that try changing to channel 00 ( just type 00 in remote)
Some sets will allow you to type in 02 and then hit the channel down button on the remote.

If you have the user manual it will give you the exact steps you need to take.

Dvd wont work.


First, is the DVD player output (Video out, audio out) connected to the TV input? Have you used the Yellow cable from  DVD video out to the TV video in? Mixing the audio and video cables will result in no signal. Have you selected the proper input with your TV remote control. Most plasmas accept a variety of input signals; you must select the right one. I deal with a number of these issues. Usually the connections are made improperly or the correct input source is not selected with the TV remote. Put a DVD in the player and press play. Be sure you have made the proper connection from DVD player video/audio out into an auxiliary or video input on the TV. These could be labeled Line 1 or Line 2.  With the DVD playing, run through the input options on your remote control. The button might be marked source, video or input. The screen should display your choices i.e. video 1, video 2, etc. When you see your DVD program, you've got the right combination.
