Yup you can, but your remote generally need to be able to do what is called a macro. It can be programmed to do several button presses in sequence for you to setup different arrangements for your AV. What model remote control do you have? I can check it out for you. Make and model is good :)

How I change the video input on my kp-65wv600


There are a couple of ways to cycle through the inputs on the KP-65WV600. The front panel TV/Video button will cycle through the inputs. (This is near the bottom of the button cluster between the Volume - and Flash Focus buttons.) On the original remote, you use also use the TV/Video button; it's above the 1 in the number pad section of the remote. For a third party remote, you will need to find the code that will enable a Source or Input button to cycle through the inputs on the TV.

These are shown in the manual which is available from the product support page: https://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=KP65WV600&template_id=1®ion_id=1&tab=manuals#/manualsTab . (This is the Manuals, Specs, Warranty tab.) The direct link to the manual is currently https://docs.sony.com/release//KP65WV600.PDF . See page 14 (page 15 of the PDF) for the front panel buttons; see page 48 (49 of the PDF) for the remote control buttons.

I hope this helps.

After a quick power outage, we lost everything, just snow on the screen. Was hooked up to Direct TV via the sat input before the outage. Now the TV is on the rooftop antenna input evidently because it...


On my Dir.TV box is a door in the lower right front. Behind this door is a red button. Press it and turn the box back on if it doesn't come back on by itself. It will go through a reboot cycle of 5 to 10 minutes. That should get the satellite going but I'm not sure about the TV input problem. Do you have a menu button on the TV? If so you should be able to find a way to change the input. If not, find your model number, then Google "TV remote" and you should find sites that will sell you an original remote. They will have a box that you can enter your model # into and tell you your remote number. Then Google that part number and shop for the best price. Good luck.

Make sure your cable box is on and on a channel that you normally watch so that we know there is video being transmitted to the TV,then useing the remote that came with the TV press the button that is labeled " input" or " source" multiple times until you see a picture back on your TV screen. Good luck and Happy Holidays!

How do I change my remote for TV to Input Video 1?


There should be a button on your remote denoting "Input." If you connect the DVD player to the TV on "video input 1" then push the input button on the remote or TV itself until the DVD appears on your TV (which will be Video 1). Some TVs must have the component (in your case) the "DVD" player connected to the TV before the TV will recognize it. Make sure the DVD is powered up and then push the input button until the DVD player appears on the TV. Depending on your TV inputs, there may be multiple inputs like, Video, Component, DVI, or HDMI. The above are listed in the respective order of "quality." HDMI being the best. Whatever input you hook the DVD player up to on the TV will be the "input" you will look for when pressing the input button. Hope this helps.

MODEL WS-65611 TV DOES NOT RESPOND TO REMOTE. HAVE REPLACED BATTERIES AND RESET THE TV. REMOTE LIGHT WORKS.


Is your remote one of the "universal" ones that allows you control multiple boxes?

If so, be sure you are selecting the correct input (TV, DVD, AUX, SAT...etc).

It's also possible that you will have to reprogram your TV to accept the remote's input. This can happen even if the TV and the Remote were sold together. Check your TV/remote manual for the syncing instructions and associated codes.

TV does not recieve a remote


Hey, Have you tried to power cycle your remote? That may work, do the TV too. I'll give ya the steps, just follow them and you should be ok. I'll throw in a factory reset as well, but if you're not using a cable box you will have to run another auto scan. anyways start off by unplugging the TV and removing the batteries from the remote control. Let them both sit, you don't have to let the remote sit really, but I do for good measure. You have to let the TV sit for a minimum of 5 minutes. at the end of 5 minutes, you have to find the physical power button on the TV, this means NOT on the remote, but on the TV itself, you have to find this power button, and you have to hold it down for 1 solid minute. Again, any time you can do something extra for good measure, it can't hurt, so if you want to leave it unplugged for 10 minutes and hold the button for 2, go for it, it may help. After you're done with that, power cycle the remote control. Being that your remote seems to be haywire, go ahead and press every single button, this means channel up and down, even if they're on the same button, every one from the top to the bottom, 5 times with no batteries in it. Then hold down the power button on the remote for 30 seconds. Then replace the batteries, preferrably with new ones. This completes the power cycles for both the Remote control and the TV. Now, before plugging the TV back in, we have to do the factory reset. Again, hold the power button on the actual TV, and then, while holding down the power button, plug in the power cord, wait for a couple of seconds, and then release the power button. Wait for a moment, and then turn the TV on. This completes the factory reset.

The reason for all of this, is, power cycle the remote to drain it's capacitors and reset it, power cycle the TV incase the Remote sensor is affected by a static electricity build up. Factory reset incase any settings may have caused this. Hope this helps.

Hooking a Wii to Dish Network reciever(not a hd tv)


It sounds like you have a pretty new TV. This means that there should be multiple AV jacks in the back for setting up your many components. Plug in the receiver into #1, the Wii into #2, and any other equipment you may have (DVD, VCR etc.) in the same way. You should then use the original TV remote to switch between Video 1, 2, 3 and so one for each compnent you want to use. The button on the remote will be labeled video, tv/video, input select, or input, something like that.

Hope this helps!!

On my modle 32u-s508b t.v. the channel keeps changing to input 2 and back again sometimes rapidly sometimes it will be stable for hours.


Hi,

Pls check if any of the buttons on the front panel control, more specifically the Source/Video/Tuner button is stuck in the pressed position. Alternately, check the same with the remote. You could also try removing the remote's battery to observe if problem persist.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

i am not familiar with this model, but on most sets you will have a button on the remote to activate pip, when active you should be able to adjust channels on the small display with the remote and cycle through inputs. depending on the tv you will either have 2 inputs for your cable/sat/tv feed, or will have 1 with a dual tuner.
check the connections in the back for a second cable input, or hook up a dvd/vcr/game console/etc to test the pip.
start dvd or tape playing, press pip button to display the mini-screen, then use the tv/vcr or input button to cycle through the modes and see if one pops up. most tvs that have pip will also have a swap button on the remote, it may be labeled with text, or it may just look like one screen overlaying another, press that one to swap between displays.

hope this helps,
trin
