Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

My remote is inconsistent--both shutting down and starting.It is particularly difficult when switching from TV to DVD/CD. I bought the remote on recommendations from Circuit City and twice had assistance in setting up although it seems more troublesome now than earlier after installation. Last installation was bymy computer but conducted by a firedog. Although these remotes are able to handle many devices I wonder if ,when reset, that leaving the satellite out of the equation (Left ON like we used to with the old system) would simplify the problem? Thank you in advane--Lloyd Hetherington -Gold Canyon, AZ 85218 PS The remote was urchased Jan/08

Check the battery to be sure it is installed properly.Point the remote control at the Interface module. Relocate the Interface module, making sure it is in a clear line of sight to the remote and there are no obstructions. Make sure the protective film is removed from the lens on the front of the Interface module. Check that the source button on the remote blinks when a button is pressed. Check that the green LED on the Interface module blinks off briefly when a remote button is pressed.

Hope this helps

Thank you for using Fixya

Many times when a remote has difficulty turning the devices on and off, or a few buttons aren't working like they used to, the remote is simply wearing out. The most commonly used buttons are the first to go, and the optical eye is another thing that goes. If reprogramming doesn't seem to fix the problem, then it may be time for a new remote.

I am trying to get a remote code for my slyvania 6719


I also can't find the remote for my Sylvania
TV/VCR/DVD combo...
Model number 6719DF. I don't normally use this tv
(it's an extra spare that I plug into our generator when
the power goes out... since our regular family TV is
quite big and set into the wall making it difficult to
track cords around, I drag this crappy Sylvania down
from our dining room to our family room) I did
happen to find an old Zenith universal remote that
does work with it in some ways (See directions
below). I can turn the TV on and off, set the channels,
language, clock.. etc through the Input select button
on the universal remote but can't set to "Game Mode"
after using connections with video/audio input cords
plugged into the front panel of the TV. So
Playstations, extra dvd players or vcr's, etc won't
work.
Switching from the VCR to DVD and vice versa does
require manually setting the tv itself (remote doesn't
work with that) but at least I can set sub titles, fast
forward through chapters on Dvd's and control the
volume, etc without having to constantly walk over to
the tv.
Programming the remote: I've noticed a lot of people
have tried using codes supplied by different universal
remote providers and couldn't find a code that
worked using their lists with this particular model...
there is a way that it can be done but it's a bit more
time consuming:
Many types of "universal" remotes give the option of
"scanning" the electronic device for a code if one is
not available or the one provided with lists does not
work... Every universal remote though needs certain
buttons pushed during the "scan" and they are all
different! Ha! So if you lost or misplaced the MANUAL
as well (like me!) you might need to do a search on a
manual for your particular universal remote, but I can
at least give you directions on programming a
"Zenith" Universal remote to "scan" for a Sylvania
TV/DVD/VCR combo model 6719DF:
Using the Zenith Universal Remote or any Universal Remote using it's "scan" method:
1: Shut off the TV
2. Press and hold "Code Search" on the remote until
the red LED
light lights up and stays lit.
3. Press the device button for the device (In my case,
for my crappy Sylvania combo, I pressed "TV".)
The LED light will blink once.
4. Scanning: Slowly press and release the "Power"
button on the remote, waiting a few seconds between
while watching the TV to turn on. It's very important
that you pause in between because if you do it too fast
and the TV turns on before you press the power
button again... you'll have to start all over. I've
learned that lesson.
It took 160 presses each time on that button to get the
correct code scanned! I had to do it over 3 times
before I stopped myself beforehand because I was
pressing it too quickly..
5. Right after the TV power turns on, press the "Mute"
button on the remote to set the code. It should work with few limitations (no "game" mode)
after that.

I have bought an Antsig universal remote control for my Sony DVD CMT-GP8D but the 4 diget code is not in the operation book. Please help


Have you tried the manual option? Turn on your DVD player. Press "TV" or maybe a different button for DVD players, then a red light on your remote blinks once. Then hold both the "up" volume and "up" channel button down until your red light is permanently on. Then whilst holding your remote control 1mm away from your DVD player signal light (usually red too), hold down the "power" button until your dvd player switches off. Then switch it on again and try other buttons. However, I've only tried this on an LG TV, but took me 2 days until I really put the remote in front of that signal light. Took about 1 minute or more while holding down the "power" button. Hope it works =)

This is a very common problem in these sets. I would recommend taking it to a certified repair shop. What normally happens is that the x-ray protect transistor starts to "leak" (electricity, not fluids) and shuts the unit down. The repair is not too costly.

Harmony 550, TV comes on, then shuts off


Can you test it again, and look at the remote. Does the remote flash, indicating that another command is sent that is powering off the TV?
