Advent tv/dvd 27 inch flat screen. Weird Cable and power and volume problem

First the power button on my remote stopped working. So I got a universal remote. I pushed a weird button on that one and now my tv is squiggly and has asian writing on it. I changed the language to English and it didn't fix it. Also, the volume is barely a 4 or 5 when I turned it up all the way! Please someone help

    The exact same thing just happened with out T.V!!! What the heck? Same lack of volume, asian writing with symbols, and weird "star wars" like picture. It all happened after trying to use the the RCA universal remote we bought, after the original remote kicked the can. We will try unplugging it and i'll let ya know the outcome!

    The tv is cheap. The repair guy told me to call the company for a new chip. The chips go out on these tvs. I bought the tv because it was cheap. I can't find the company phone number. I guess after a repair guy replaces the chip it will be good as new. Wish me luck:)

I have read that if you unplug the unit for more than about 4 hours, it will reset to the factory settings, and that wont be a problem.

Sylvania 6727fde universal remote code


Hello goyitos,

I would contact the TV manufacture and then see if they can send you a replacement remote. They will usually do this for the cost of the remote with shipping and handling.

I hope this helps
Thank you,

DTV remote code


KZXten,

Don't know if this will help but I have Comcast as my cable TV provider and am using a Motorola DCT-6200 STB and the remote Comcast provides with the STB. To get my Panasonic TV/VCR combo (PVQ-2510A) to work with the Comcast remote I had to do the following:

1) Do the remote code search in AUX mode (or VCR or DVD mode if your remote has that button instead) using the instructions for searching ing remote codes. I had to toggle back and forth between AUX and POWER on the remote until the TV turned off. I saved that code on the remote, but it only controlled the power on the TV, not the volume control.

2) Next I did the remote code search using the TV button on the remote and toggled between the TV button and the volume control until the volume +/- bar appeared on the screen. I saved that code too.

I use the AUX button to turn the TV on and off. Once the TV is on the volume control on the remote operates the TV volume normally. I still need to toggle between CABLE and AUX depending on which device I'm controlling, the cable Set Top Box (STB) or the TV. You may have to experiment some to get it to work correctly.

Here's a link to the remotes Comcast is providing in my area.
