Question about Audiovox FPE1078 7.8 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Still having issues

Hi there,
You posted a solution to my problem before with only being able to use the remote to turn on & off the tv, continuous channel searching when I switch to TV from DVD mode, etc. I don't have a cable box, it's just a cable line from the tv to the wall, and the cable people have checked and think it's not the cable, it's the tv. Any ideas? Once I tried turning on the power and clicking the tiny "program" button on top of the tv with a pencil, which got it back to normal for a week or so, but now I'm back to the same 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

    Okay. It's coming back to me..Be sure that you have CATV selected as your antenna options, and then run a setup sequence (which I believe the set wants to do anyway) and see if that does it. If not, the TV will require what is known as a tuner pack, as this one might very well be toast. I hope this helps...accordianman

  • Michael Borelli May 08, 2008

    Pull up your on-screen menu and find the desired options you want. All the different options this set has to offer are done from the on-screen prompts....accordianman

Hello mrdavidmetca,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

I would start by pulling the batteries from the remote control. Manually turn the TV off and then back on, manually. If the issue resolves, replace the remote.
If the issue continues; you will need to find a local TV Repair Shop and have the Tuner Board replaced.

Have a great day!

I need a code for my element tv for the dish remote

Hi there! This is Cheri Torres with DISH Network customer service. I was reading through the questions posted here and wanted to see if I could be of assistance to you. :) We have a few different codes for each of our different IR remotes, so I will give you the remote codes that work the best for the most common remotes that we have. For the 3.0, 3.1, and 3.2 IR remotes the best codes are 627 and 659. For our 5.0, 5.2, 5.3, and 5.4 IR remotes the best codes for the Element TV are 627 and 902. I would also like to list for you the instructions for addressing your remote to your Element TV. I hope you find these codes and instructions useful. If you have any further questions regarding this issue or any other issue please feel free to post back here or email me at

Instructions for addressing your DISH remote to your TV

  1. Turn the Television On.
  2. Press and Hold the TV mode button for three seconds until all of the mode buttons light up. Once you release the TV button it should flash.
  3. Enter the three-digit code using the buttons on the number pad.
  4. Press the pound(#) button once. Note: The LED will flash three times.
  5. Test functionality with the TV
  6. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.

Hi there, this is Cheri Torres with DISH Network customerservice. I came across your post recently and wanted to see if I couldhelp you get this issue resolved. If your remote is controlling the receiver byitself, continuously scrolling through the channels and volume on its own,sounds like you have an issue with interference. The interference couldpossibly be by another person in your area having the same remote address asyou or you might just need to change your remote address to eliminate any otherinterference you might be experiencing. I would like to give you instructionson changing the remote address on your TV to stop this issue from happening. Ihope you find these steps useful in fixing your issue. If you have any furtherquestions or concerns feel free to post back here or email me :)

  1. Go to System Info screen. In order to get into system info you will have to press the system info button on the front of the DISH receiver box. If your receiver does not have this button you can also press the power button once and then the up arrow button once on the front of the DISH receiver. The last option you can try if all else fails, would be to open the smart card door on the front left side of the receiver and pull out the smart card.
  2. Once your in the system info screen you will want to find the remote address. For TV1 you will see primary remote address and for TV2 you will see secondary remote address. You are going to want to change the number that is listed in the small white box.
  3. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  4. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
  5. Press the pound (#) button
  6. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

Try taking the batteries out of the remote or taking it out of range from the tv. Then try turning the volume up on the Tv manually. If the volume continues to go down on its own then it is a problem with the tv set itself. If the problem stops with the remote out of the picture then it is a remote problem. As far as powering the unit off may be a similar issue. If there is an on/off button on the tv and it works to turn the power on but not off then it is a tv issue. If the remote turns the tv on but not off it may be something as simple as the wrong code being programmed into the remote(universal remote) or if it is the factory remote it may be an issue with that. You could try getting a new universal remote that works with your unit.
