Buttons on TV or remote not working. Can only cycle through video input options.

The only button that works properly is on/off button. None of the buttons on the TV itself work. A few (volume, channel up/down) buttons on the remote cause the TV to cycle through the video input options, but do nothing else. No other buttons work. I can do nothing but turn the TV on/off and cycle through the video input options.

My remote is not working and i am trying to switch to tv or dvd but its showing a screen with photo music movie text, how do i switch to tv or dvd

Without brand and model, I am hard pressed to help. Even if I had that, some sets have a limited number of buttons on the side that might allow switching input. I would even try disconnecting the HDMI cable or other cabling to a DVD, turning off the set and turning it back on.. But before you do that, look for an input button.

On the side of your TV, look for an INPUT button.
Press the INPUT button to cycle through each HDMI port and available option.
Keep pressing the INPUT button until you find the correct input for your device.
If your remote does not respond to a change of batteries, you may be destined to acquire a universal remote from somewhere like Wal-Mart or Amazon.

I have harwl led 24cm tv and don't have a remote want to unlock the device on the corner that locked the TV

To unlock your Harwl LED 24cm TV without a remote, you can try the following steps:
  1. Check the buttons on the TV: Look for any buttons on the TV itself. Sometimes there might be an "Input" or "Source" button that can be used to navigate the menu options.
  2. Use the control panel on the TV: Look for a control panel or set of buttons on the side or bottom of the TV. These buttons might provide options to navigate and unlock the device.
  3. Try a universal remote app: If you have a smartphone or tablet, you can download a universal remote control app from the app store. Connect your device to the same network as the TV and use the app as a remote control to access the menu and unlock the TV.
  4. Contact the manufacturer: If none of the above options work, reach out to the manufacturer's customer support for assistance. They may be able to provide you with some specific instructions or options to unlock the TV without a remote.
Remember to refer to the user manual or contact customer support for your specific TV model for more accurate instructions.

Ecco TV 32 D-LED it just stuck on USB Mode,the source button is not working and i don't have a remote.Help

Hello,

If your Ecco TV 32 D-LED is stuck in USB mode and the source button is not working, and you don't have a remote, there are a few things you can try to resolve the issue:

  1. Power cycle the TV: Unplug the TV from the power source and leave it unplugged for a few minutes. Then, plug it back in and turn it on. This can sometimes reset the TV and resolve minor software glitches.
  2. Try using the buttons on the TV: Although you mentioned that the source button is not working, try pressing other buttons on the TV itself, such as the menu or volume buttons. Some TVs have different combinations of buttons that can act as a substitute for the source button. Refer to your TV's user manual if you're unsure about the button combinations.
  3. Check for a physical source button: Look closely at the TV's physical buttons to see if there is a dedicated source button or a button with an icon indicating input selection. Pressing this button should allow you to cycle through different input sources, including USB mode.
  4. Borrow a universal remote: If you don't have the original remote for your TV, try borrowing a universal remote from a friend or neighbor. Universal remotes can often be programmed to work with different TV models. Check the remote's instructions or manual on how to program it for your TV brand and model.
  5. Contact the manufacturer: If none of the above steps work, it's recommended to reach out to the manufacturer's customer support. They can provide you with specific information tailored to your TV model and help troubleshoot the issue further.

How to setup sanyo dp50747 tv with no remote

If you do not have the remote control for your Sanyo DP50747 TV, you can try using the buttons on the TV itself to set it up. Here are the steps to follow:
  1. Locate the power button on the TV. This is usually a round button with the power symbol (a circle with a line through it) or a triangle with a line through it. Press the power button to turn on the TV.
  2. Locate the input button on the TV. This is usually a square button with the input symbol (a rectangle with an arrow pointing into it) or a button labeled "Input" or "Source". Press the input button to cycle through the available input options (e.g. HDMI, AV, etc.).
  3. Once you have selected the appropriate input, you should see the setup screen for your TV. Use the arrow buttons on the TV to navigate through the menus and select the options you want to change (e.g. language, time zone, etc.).
  4. To save your changes, look for a button labeled "Menu" or "Options" on the TV and press it. This will bring up the main menu, where you can select the "Save" or "OK" option to save your changes.
Note: If you are unable to navigate through the menus using the buttons on the TV, you may need to use a universal remote control or purchase a replacement remote for your TV.

How I change the video input on my kp-65wv600

There are a couple of ways to cycle through the inputs on the KP-65WV600. The front panel TV/Video button will cycle through the inputs. (This is near the bottom of the button cluster between the Volume - and Flash Focus buttons.) On the original remote, you use also use the TV/Video button; it's above the 1 in the number pad section of the remote. For a third party remote, you will need to find the code that will enable a Source or Input button to cycle through the inputs on the TV.

These are shown in the manual which is available from the product support page: https://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=KP65WV600&template_id=1®ion_id=1&tab=manuals#/manualsTab . (This is the Manuals, Specs, Warranty tab.) The direct link to the manual is currently https://docs.sony.com/release//KP65WV600.PDF . See page 14 (page 15 of the PDF) for the front panel buttons; see page 48 (49 of the PDF) for the remote control buttons.

I hope this helps.

How can i hook up a dvd player to a Sylvain tv with no remote

Ok the brand of the tv is not as relevant as the particular model number as each set varies. generically speaking without having to ask you for more information, some tv set allow you to access auxiliary inputs without a remote by pressing a combination of buttons or repeatedly pressing the channel up or down button until the inputs are cycled. A lot of set also allow you to navigate through inputs by the menu, a menu is often accessible by buttons on the set. If none of these options are avaliable try contacting your tv manufactor and asking how to navigate the inputs Witout the remote, which keep in mind is highly possible that you may not be able to do so. Consider replacing the remote with a universal remote.
good luck and thanks

I pressed the VGA button on my remote and lost my picture.

Find the button that relates to the input you want to view. IE "video" "composite" "s-video"
Or simply try any of the input buttons until the picture returns. 
Also try simply hitting the VGA button again.
If none of that works, please let me know the model number of the tv and the input sources you are trying to view.
