Question about Symphonic ST420FF 20" TV

2 Answers

Stuck in Menu and remote locked out

Symphonic ST424FF 24" Flat Screen. I programmed a new Jumbo Sentry universal remote and it worked until my daughter pushed the "OK" button on it. It muted the TV, rendered the remotes useless and put a menu on the screen that looks like a programers menu with HEX options. The TV Menu button will scroll through the HEX options but it won't exit this menu mode and go back to normal or turn the sound back on. I powered it off (all night) then on and the menu is still on the screen. The picture displays just fine - behind the mystery menu options.

    Removing the batteries and resetting the remote was the same suggestion the Sentry Universal Remote company gave me but the remote still didn't work even after I reprogrammed it. The old Symphonic remote doesn't work on the Symphonic TV now either but strangely the old remote works on another TV we are using in the interim. Is there some way to reset the manufacture's settings inside the TV? Thanks for the help tigger.

Try to reprogram the universal remote with that same code and try pushing the buttons on it to see if you can make it go away. i found a code for my remote that would bring up some text int he corners and i never found out what it was. got it to go away by pushing the same button.

1. When you cut on you tv the guide pops up.
2. On the tv remote there is a button that says "menu" hit that and the screen should go away, i just did it myself because i have my tv program with that Jumbo Universal Remote Control and just ran into that problem.
3. How to just program it out of the tv when its cut on all together, im on the hunt for that answer myself.

The TV has been 'Locked'. To unlock it press the DISP button for 4 seconds. Since you have a universal remote and there is no way to determine which button is the DISP button try holding each button on the universal remote for 4 seconds until, hopefully, you find the correct one.

Whats the tv remote code if i have a direct tv + remote.


The Directv remote isn't capable of fully emulating the native remote of the Symphonic Combo. You can get limited functionality though.

1. Move Remote slider to "AV1" position.
2. Hold down mute and select until you get 2 flashes of the green light, then release both keys.
3. Enter 20821 and observe 2 more flashes of the green light.

Next lock the volume controls to this device.

4. If you have moved the remote's slider from the AV1 position, move it back. The slider should remain on AV1.
5. Hold down mute and select until you get 2 flashes then release both keys.
6. Enter 993 and observe 2 flashes.
7. Press and release THE SELECT KEY and observe 2 more flashes.

You can control the TV's power using the big power button under the device selector.
