Lost functionality w/ Universal Remote

I lost the original remote and bought a universal as a replacement. I can turn off the TV, change channels, etc., but for some reason the remote won't allow me to pull up the menu or switch from cable input to video input. I can't even find a way of switching the input from the front of the TV or in the menu. Any ideas?

Then the only way to reach your tv is through coaxial antenna port. So you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your red yellow and white cables (rca cables from a dvd, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me.

Sorry to have to tell you bud, there is no other way except with the original remote. Go to http://www.remotes.com and enter your model and you will see what you have to spend if you want to use your tv fully! Its about %* bucks + shipping. Good luck

Now, it depends upoon the Universal Remote u purchased. If your remote has the neccesary buttons - AV/TV switching,Front - Rear Input Switching, Menu, etc, it should work! Since there are multiple codes for every brand, keep feeding the various codes one by one, and checking if the neccesary functions operate. If, finally, you are unsuccesful, then, folow techman's advice. Best of Luck.

Universal remotes have severe limitations and aren't suitable to replace a lost or broken original remote.

If a genuine replacement cannot be found, try searching for a compatible remote. These provide most of the functions of the original including menu access. I think I bought mine from Amazon or ebay and it cost little more than a good universal.

You need the original remote to change internal and setup options. Universal remotes can only do the basic functions.

Do a Google search to see if someone somewhere has an orignal remote for sale.

You need the original remote controller to be able to switch input modes.Universal ones usually don't work. If you don't have the original remote and can't find it ever or if it is too expensive you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your dvd player, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4 and other cable channels are still working,

You can buy the RF Modulator from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180299245670

No input channels

Universal remote control are normally programmed for basic functions, ie. chennel up down, volume up down, numbers, etc. This is even written in the manual that they do not guarantee that all functionality can be used. Here are your options: 1. Try all the codes that match your TV, there is a slim chance that the other code have the functionality that you need. 2. Buy the original model remote control. 3. If you know of someone that have the same TV, buy a universal remote control with 'learning' function and copy the signal from the original remote control. I have the same problems before. Now I use my Casio wrist remote control to copy the special functions such as A/V so that even if the original remote control is lost, I can still use these functionality
