Easiest way to bypass that is buy a different remote. There are several programmable remotes out there. But since your tv is pretty fancy. I would go with Logitech Harmony. While they are little more expensive. They also do a lot more.

Familiarize yourself with the different options the remote has and pick which that works best for you.

The List & Labels part of the setup lets you edit your channel list and choose or create a

Note: Changing List and Labels can be time consuming. You can change these at a later time by accessing the

Setup menu.

1. Press the left or right arrow to scroll through the available channels and choose the

channel you want to edit.

2. Press the down arrow to highlight the In channel list option. Press the left or right arrow

Rca hdtv channel changed by mistake


RCA channel setup and selection is not easy to understand. You may try to add channel 3 on the add/remove channel section. If that doesn't work try pressing the input button. Good Luck.

Access the menu options manually


Press the set's Volume (+) and (-) buttons simultaneously to activate the Menu display. Use the Channel Down button to scroll to the desired menu item, then use Volume (+) or (-) to change that item, or to activate a sub-menu if any. (If in a sub-menu, again use Channel Down to reach the desired item, then Volume (+) or (-) to change its setting or value.) When finished, press Volume (+) and (-) simultaneously as needed to "back out" of the menu.

Not all set functions can be reached this way, especially a few involving numeric entry; but this will get you started. Good luck!

How to change channels to channel 3 without remote?


Will your tv allow you access to the menu from the front of the set? (try holding down different combinations of buttons on the front of the set if there is no menu button) If you can get into the menu, run the automatic channel memory feature. Make sure the device you want to see on channel 3 is on and connected to the set. (if it's a vcr make sure it's in vcr mode) This should find the device and set your tv to channel 3. Use the channel buttons on the front of set if its not right on ch3.

My Vizio plasma TV won't change channels with the remote or side buttons, but if I input a channel number, it will change that way.


Try unplugging the TV for a few minutes and then doing an auto channel search through the menu button. That has solved my problem, at least for the time being.

Can't change channels!!!!


take the batteries out of the remote...now check if you can change channels manually on the big screen. if so the remote is stuck on one signal that channel u said. get a new remote. if still same trouble on big screen look hard at the buttons and make sure none are jammed. also try to get to your setup menu and auto-program the channels it should search everything and then try changing channels. new stuff alot times plugs come loose, goes back to the factory workers...not pushing them tight have a tech check that at your home.
