    the problem is clearly NOT with the remote. NONE of the buttons on the TV work except the ON/OFF.

Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.

I went to turn up the volume on my TV and hit the channel up button instead. Now the screen is all snowy and I can't get a picture

You have changed the input to TV. Locate the INPUT/SOURCE button on the TV remote and change the input to the input that you want.

I have a Proscan pledv2488a. There is a disk in the DVD player, but I cannot find a way to eject it. There appears to be no eject button on the remote. What can be done?

Do you have the original remote or a universal remote? On the original remote, the Eject button is also the Favorites (FAV) button. It's just below the Volume - section of the Volume toggle on the left side of the remote. The button has an upwards arrow above a line on it. You probably need to set the source to DVD for the Eject button to work properly. (If the source is TV, the button will add or delete the current channel to the Favorites list.) You can cycle through the input source options by pressing the Source button on the TV or the remote. On the TV, the Source button is between the Power and Menu buttons. On the remote, the Source button is on the right hand side above the Up arrow key.

The manual for the PLEDV2488A is available from Proscan at the manufacturer's site: . Click on the Downloads tab. The direct link is . Page 8 describes the remote buttons.

I hope this helps.

What channel on the hci tv can I view my dvd I hooked the red yellow and white jacks into the back of tv but cannot find a channel to view the dvd

You probably need to find a Source or Input button or menu item. Change the source from TV (if that is your current source) to A/V (or composite video). Depending on the model, there may be a source/input button on the TV. There will always be a sourc/input button on the original remote. If you are using a universal remote, you may need to try a different code to get the function to work.

On a few TVs, you can find this in one of the sub-menus. However not all TVs let you change the source in the Menu system.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of the HCI TV and whether you have the original remote or a universal remote to control the TV if you would like me to find the specific information for your TV.

Cindy Wells
(For example, the HCI RM22 III remote has the input button on the left side just below the power button.)

Why is there a beautiful picture but no sound and cannot change input?

Re the sound, make sure that the mute switch is not on.

Re the input, did you try changing input at BOTH the tv and remote controls. Could be the remote source button is not working.

I have a Panasonic PT-56DLX75. Remote and TV buttons can only turn TV on and off. No other buttons work so I cannot control volume or use menu for dvd. What are my options?

Try using another video input source to see if it is just the DVD player, or DVD input, also try using another set of RCA plugs, you would be surprised how many times 1 RCA connector goes bad.If no other input sources work and you are sure your cables are good, speak to a local Tech about possible main board/logic board repair/replacement.

Hi, i was trying to turn down the volume on my tv (its an insignia) and i accidentally hit the channel button and i think it messed up the programming of my tv to my cable box. what should i do?

try setting the tv to channel 3 or 4. if that does not work, try finding a "input" or "source" or video" button on the remote and cycle thru them, this should get you back up and running. remember to have the cable box turned on during this so youll see when it comes back on.

Where do i find INPUT SELECTon zenith tv sy2779dt,trying to hook up Wii and default Wii screen does not come up. manual says to change IS. don't have orig remote, only dish there a way to change IS...

Most tv's have a physical button on the front and it will either be labeled input or source-source select. If thats not the case on your tv, look for a menu button and try to navigate through the tv menus until you find tv input or source select. If that still does not work, you can use your dish 500 remote and if you already use that to turn the tv on and adjust volume, you can probably use it to change the input. To do this, select the tv mode on your dish 500 remote, and then press the source or input button until you get to where you need to be. Once thats done, make sure you return your remote to sat mode or you will not be able to control the dish reciever. Hope this was helpfull to you.

I have a Toshiba TV/VCR/DVD combo, remote WC-FN2. I can turn the TV on,change volume but can not change channels. Help! Thanks,

Some tv remotes will do this if the TV is programmed to skip all but one channel (or the last scan for channels had only one active channel - like a tv connected to a set top box (3,4,60)).

See if you can navigate to other channels by typing in a channel number. Also check if the Tuner is the current source of the video signal by pressing the Source or Input button. If you have a menu button on the TV or the remote, try rescanning channels or editing the channel list.

I hope this helps.

When I turn the tv on, it comes on in DVD mode and won't change over to the tv mode.

You have two ways to change it to TV Mode.
1 - remote control (source button) -cycle through the options.
2 - side of the unit (source button) -cycle through the options.

If the remote doesn't work, try using the button on the TV to change the source mode.
If this doesn't work, you have a problem with the TV.

Another option is to check your inputs. If you have the input for the DVD in the wrong place, that may also be causing you the inability to change from DVD mode.
