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.

Programming Universal Remote with RCA Sound System


You don't say whether you tried using the code search function to find something that works. As for the lack of a "sound system" button, you should be able to select any button other than TV to find a code.

I need the codes for a symphonic tv


The codes for your Jumbo Universal Remote to control a Symphonic television are 033, 053, 155, 189, and 198.

To program your remote by entering a code, follow these steps:

  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH button for at least 3 seconds until the red LED lights up and stays lit.
  3. Press the TV button on the remote so that the LED blinks once and then remains solid red.
  4. Enter the first set of 3-digit codes from the list. The LED will blink once every keypress. After the 3rd digit, the red LED will turn off indicating that the code was recognized for the device. If the code was not compatible, the LED will flash several times and you need to return to step 2 to try that code again or to try the next code in the list.
  5. After the LED has turned off, aim the remote at the TV and press ON/OFF. If the device turns off, you have used the correct code and the remote was successfully programed. If the device does not power off, return to step 2 and try again with the next code in the list.
