Input Selection without a Remote

RCA F27442 TV. Is there a way to select the front video input without using a remote? The remote was discarded when a converter box was attached, and a power outage apparently reset the input.

    I liked this idea, but the channel + - keys bring up the next available channel; I couldn't find a way to select zero or 00 without the remote.

    I have a SystemLink 5 Universal Remote and it won't let me choose channel 00 either. There is no input button on the remote, and I don't have the original remote (bought the tv at a garage sale). My son wants to plug in his WII but we can't get it to show on the TV. Any suggestions?

    Also have this model F27442 and do not have the original remote. 2 Universal remotes will not activate the input option, so there is no way to use the front RGB connection. I have tried all codes for RCA sets with no solution.

On either the front of the TV or a universal remote (which I assume you have already programmed) hit the MENU button. Go to option 4 "Channel". Go down to "List and Labels." Hit the CH up or down key until you see "FRNT" come up under the channel # heading. If your DVD is connected and playing, you'll see it playing now. Exit the menu to watch. You'll have to reverse the process to get back to watching TV, but there doesn't seem to be any way around this if you don't have your RCA remote. This process is guaranteed to work on an F27442 and will probably work on some other RCA models.

    Duh! Without the ability to manually input numbers, or an up-dn selection available, how do you input "channel 00"?

I don't have a remote for my tv. How do I get the tv back to tv/video?


If your TV has a 'Menu' button at its front panel, you can surf through its menus and can set the input select option to make it into tV/Video option. If there is no such button, no other way to select the input selection without its remote control.

How to get audio video button on rca tv without remote


Hello
If the TV has a "Menu" button at its front panel, you can select its menu, and can select the input selection. If not, you can't do with wthout a remote control. Just buy an RCA universal remote control. If there is no Menu Button at the front panel of the tV, there is no other way to get AV selection to your TV. OK.

F27442 - How to display signal from front panel RCA video input


Hello,
To display signal from that input you will need to change the input on the tv. This can be done either on the front of the tv, or by using your remote control. First power on and connect the desired source. Next on the tv or on your remote, press a button labeled either source or tv /video and scroll through by continuously pressing until you see the source you connected appear on the tv display.
Good Luck

Can't select front input without remote


I had the same problem, had a universal DirecTV remote that was able to control the volume/mute, power and channels (both TV and DirecTV), but the input button didn't work. There was no av/tv button on the front of the tv, and the autoregistration of channels didn't pickup the gamecube on the AV channel. What solved it was simply to press "00". I couldn't believe it, but it was that simple. Hope this helps you like it helped me, since the tv was not going to be of much use since we were using the RCA inputs, not the coax. Didn't want to try to conver the RCA to coax either.

Hooking up & seeing a dvd player?


does the dvd have a coax output for coax antenna input on the tv? you can use that untill you can get the video input selection straight with the tv and a remote that supports rca's extra functions such as menu , tv/av button
or
also if there is a( wake-up) on/off timer in the tv menu , then you can also set it to come on with the video input instead of a tv station,set it a few minutes after the time it is when you set it( then just turn off the tv set after the time is set and you have exited the menu, then it will come on with the video input instead of a tv station)
otherwise you will need that remote that supports the video input selection on your tv
