Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a visco TV and I cannot get it off of channel 1. The remote does not work so I bought a universal remote but it still won't work. I tried to codes for NEC and Polariod as suggested by others, with no luck. It will work to watch dvds, but I want to hook it up to the cable box and need to get the tv to channel 3. It used to work, but not it won't go past channel 1. Thanks.

    I bought it new. It used to work fine, but I moved, the cable guy had it working when he did the install. My husband disconnected it to hook up a bigger tv on that box (I have a separate box, no dvr, for this tv) and now I can't get it to go anywhere but channel 1. I tried the channel buttons, changing the input from cable to air, the channel scan, etc. Nothing seems to work. I tried putting the input as AV1 because when I had comcast that is where it had to be to work. At the new house I have verizon but even so it does not work with anything I have tried. I have probably spent 4 hours messing with it, but I am not tech savvy. Thanks for your help.

There should be channel buttons on the TV itself, try using those. Also, you may want to try changing the input from the Cable Box. 
I am curious as to why the remotes don't work. Also, how did it get onto channel one. Did you get the TV used?
Here is a link to the AV Science Forum. It seems other people have challenges with this TV as well.

Universal remote for RCA tv channel 1


Something missing here. There is no channel 1 on a TV set. None of the universal remote instructions I have or have seen specify that as a first step. From your post, I believe you want to use some kind of universal remote to control an RCA flat panel TV, Can you tell me the brand of universal remote you are trying to use? The answer to the last line of your post is you don't need the original remote to "reprogram". That's what universal remotes do

Normally, universal remote controls buttons might not work properly to what it meant to be. It is a common fault to most of the universal remote controls. Just see, Original is always Original, and Universal is always so. Just try to setup the remote control by using an other setup code for your device. Choose the code, which will give you.
maximum functionality. That is all.

I have a VISCO 32' tv & lost the remote. Model # VSC-32V1. I need a remote to use to get to the HDMI area. I tried a universal but it only turns it on & does channel.


Check the operation manual and note down the model number and go and fetch it from any electronics shop nearby. These are available freely now in the market.

Why won't any universal remotes work with my LG tv?


The two possible reasons are:

1. None of the codes are correct for this model.

2. The remote infrared receiver in the set is bad.

(maybe the reason the other person got rid of the set?)

There are some ways around this depending on how you hook up and what you have for signal:

If a box (cable or sat) is connected to one of the sets of audio/video jacks on the set--switch to that input and change channels etc with the box!

Use the box remote for functions like channel and sound etc.

I bought a Radio Shack universal remote. It does not list Element codes. I've done the suggestions but it doesn't work. What are Element's codes??


hello!
"Element" codes could be: Polaroid, MAG, LG, Vizio.
Have you tried "code search" mode on universal remote? If you won't find the luck of those "brands" I suggested, do "code search". Refer to remote's owners manual. I did the same for myself: obtained RCA convertor box, without remote, RCA codes won't work, RCA is out of TV business. By using "code search" I made it work. Then, you may want to do "code retrieval" option, to know the correct code.
good luck,
Alex.

Sanyo stuck on video mode


Yippie, I figured out a solution that worked!!! I have a univeral remote from comcast, on that remote near the bottom left is a small button that says (input) tv/vcr, press that one time and whala!! the tv video screen was gone, I had to manually change the channel from the tv channel button on the unit. once I changed the channel to 3, my universal remote worked... the button is the second one from the bottom left... I was on hold with sanyo for a long time and just kept trying on my own, so good luck!!!!
