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.

You will need book to set codes or search (google) for your uni remote codes for what device you are trying to work. The main thing to remember is to switch modes when wanting to work something. Like press tv mode button when using tv or dvd mode when dvd is being used, etc.

I had the same problem and had to fix with a work around. I take the audio directly from my cable box and pipe it in to an external 'theater in a box' system.

ILO universal remote code


I had the same problem trying to program my satellite remote to work with the ILO tv. I found that the emerson codes DO work. Yes local cable remotes will work as long as you have the code and the brand is getting more popular. The code that worked with both cable companys, Charter and DirecTv was 10171 I believe. You can find it under the Emerson codes. Hope this was helpful.
