Question about Samsung WS32Z308P 32" TV

1 Answer

Samsung WS32Z308P TV has tuned out

Our Samsung WS32Z308P TV is no longer allowing us to change channels via the remote control. Volume and mute is still working via the remote but we just can't change channels. We tried to programme our "Sky" remote to operate the TV through that, but we can't do that either. We queried this with Dixons who advised that the TV may have tuned itself out. Does this happen, what needs to be done to correct the issue - do we just need to call out the service guy? Thanks

I have a toshiba theater view sd tv but my phillips universal remote input button won't work and allow me to get to video one in order to play dvd player


Universal remotes offer limited functionality such as volume changes and channel changes, muting. Often, there is no working input function with those remotes and you have to get the original one for that to work. Ouch.

If you forget your password, press STOP/EJECT on the TV/VCR front panel and MENU on the remote simultaneously. This resets the password, but not the limits you’ve set.
Televisions with Parental Lock Feature


If you forgot your password for this feature, press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
OR TRY THIS..
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS

CTC169AU
Channels that have been locked can be viewed only when the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to OFF. This can only be done with the remote control-it can not be changed with the buttons on the front of the TV.

Therefore, after you turn on PARENTAL CTRL, you simply hide the remote control so that your children can not watch the locked channels. The locked-out channels will remain unviewable even if the TV is unplugged or the channels are autoprogrammed again. The only way to view locked channels is to use the supplied remote control to set the PARENTAL CTRL function to OFF.

The PARENTAL CTRL and the CHAN CTRL functions work hand-in-hand. The instructions below will first tell you how to turn parental control on or off with the PARENTAL CTRL function and then how to lock desired channels with the CHAN CTRL function.
1. Repeatedly press MENU to select SETUP MENU, and then press + or - to display setup functions. Repeatedly press MENU to select the PARENTAL CTRL function. . When this function is set to ON, PARENTAL CTRL is activated and any channels you locked with the CHAN CTRL function will not be viewable. . When this function is set to OFF, PARENTAL CTRL is deactivated and all channels are viewable.

2. To lock channels, press the MENU button to select the CHAN CTRL function. Select a channel you want to lock by pressing CHANNEL up or down. Then press +. The CHAN CTRL setting will change from NORMAL to LOCKED when that channel is locked. To return the channel to NORMAL, press the - button. Repeat step 2 for each channel you want to lock. If the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON while you are locking out channels, each channel will go blank as you lock it. When the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON and a channel which has been locked out is tuned, the TV will display the words PARENTAL CONTROL to let your kids know you have locked it.

CTC185's
If the front panel function buttons don't work, (menu, ch up/dn etc.) but the functions work normal with the remote, enter the "Channel" menu with the remote and turn "Parental Control" off.

CTC203's
In the event you have forgotten your password, perform the following procedure:
Press and hold for 3 seconds the TV button on the remote while pressing the menu button on the TV.
This procedure will turn off the parental lock and erase the previous password .

Another Possibility To Try For Various Models: If TV's in the Parental mode and askes for a password that's forgotten, Press menu on the TV, select Parental Lock #4 on menu, then with the remote press Mute, Display, Clear, and Reset buttons in sequence.

TX808 Chassis
If Parental Controls have been set and you don't know the password, do this:
Press and hold the volume down and the channel up buttons at the same time for 5 seconds.
Now you can reset the password to 0000, and using that password you can now access the V-Chip menus.

TV's (Made by Daewoo or possibly Apex, ie. GE model 24GP653)
The factory default pass code of 6688 is also the override code, in case the owner forgets their pass code. If that doesn't work, another place in the owners manual says to push Function and Mute on the remote at the same time. Function is the top right button.

Apex model #AT2704S front panel buttons stop working? Menu, channels, volume, and power? Also has a red key in lower left corner and the screen is blue. I have tried mute and function buttons on univ


Your Apex TV has been locked by anyway. Just try this method to unlock it.
Apex TVs have parental locks that allow you to block certain programs based on
their rating. When this feature is no longer needed and you want your TV to display all programming no matter its rating, you must unlock your TV. Unlocking your Apex TV is done completely from your remote control and does not require any tools. The process takes less than 5 minutes.
• Press the "Menu" button on the remote control and use the arrow buttons to scroll down to the "Parental Guide" option, then press the "Enter" button.
Type in the default parental code "6688" if you have not set your own code. If you have set your own code, type it in. If you set your own code and forgot it, override it by using "6688."
Use the arrow keys to switch the parental lock to "OFF." This allows all programs to be viewed no matter the rating. Press the "Exit" button on the remote and start watching all your channels.

I have a small Tru flat and have lost my remote control. I am unable to tune into the A/V or Video (channel down from 2) without the remote, which I have lost. Is there a way to tune in without the remote...


You can order a replacement remote (other fixya's have it listed.

http://www.fixya.com/support/t8230570-dropped_remote

Another option would be getting a logitech harmony brand remote, (It is programmable via the PC) which will allow this.

I know that a lot of universal remotes will be able to do this as well. (For example ATT Uverse has remotes that allow this to be changed).

STB with Magnavox remote (need codes) - Samsung #TXK2766


Did extensive checking and finally found out that the remote for Magnavox TB100MW9 analog/digital converter is not made for volume control. The channel changing buttons are half-way operable--sometimes yes, sometimes no--and to think they call this a remote! Therefore you must keep the other TV ready remote that you have been using (tape them together probably) for volume and mostly channel change. I know what Magnavox can do with these remotes - and you know how much more Magnavox I will be buying in the future. Nada, none,---from a very disappointed, frustrated customer.
