Question about Emerson SpongeBob SquarePants TV
I bought this tv at Wal-Mart for my grandson. he has since lost the remote, so he can't play his gamecube. of course Wal-mart no longer sells them, and i don't know if a plain universal remote will work. there isn't even a brand name on the TV, although i heard it might be Emerson. any suggestions?
My son has a TMNT tv and the remote is broken or just the button to
turn it to the games. I bought a universal remote and it does work some
so that he can play his games but it doesn't let him enter two digit
channels to change them so he has to scroll through them to get where
he wants. It is an RCA - RCR312W remote and is universal but I had to
go through the steps for the auto code search which was a little
confusing and took a little while. The remote only cost about 8.00. All
of the features don't work and I am sure that with a little playing
around I could figure out the brand from the code but I haven't yet.
Hope that this helps and if anyone else has a better solution please
let me know.

This works on the spongebob TV -- so it might possibly work on the Teenage mutant ninja tv.
Actually I found there are several remotes that work. The first is the Bright House networks remote, the larger one...The second is The Universal Remove Control by GE. It's numbered 24944 in the upper right hand corner of the paper. It's sold for $4.94 at Walmart in the checkout area...
I found that manually inputting the code for the remote doesn't work. You have to do a search for the code using their method...on this particular remote from Walmart, its hold the setup button down until it lights up, then press and depress the TV button...then press channel up until the TV changes channels. It worked once, but I just kept going, the 2nd time it worked, then I pressed the mute button [to keep the code] and it works...you simply press input and it switches to AV.
I have to admit I thought it was ridiculous that you can't use this particular TV without the remote, but I was happy that I went through the effort the first time to keep trying remotes...
This is the first kids TV that I have found that you can't find the AV channel by going through the channels AND you can't hook up two items to the AV outlets because you have to disconnect the back or front ones, to use the other....PLUS it only comes with a dual AV outlet, instead of the 3 plugs [red, white, yellow] only has the white and yellow.
A disappointing TV to say the least.

My kid has a spongebob tv and lost the remote. I bought a 4 Device, GE Universal Remote Control at wal-mart today and entered code 210 and it works to change the inputs and changes the channels but I cannot get it to accept 2 digit numbers which is no big deal as the input is what she needed anyways. Hope this helps! :)
