Access the menu

I don't have the original remote and my universal won't let me do it. Is there a way to manually access the menus? I just got this television from a friend that moved and I have no idea how to change the settings. For some reason the SAP is stuck on and it's driving me crazy during the football games. :)

No Im so sorry my friend, there is no way to turn off any functions such as SAP unless you have an original remote control. This is a problem that has been in exsistance since they came out with sets like this!.. if you wanted to get an original replacement remote, you could easaly get one at http://www.remotes.com. If you know of a friend with a Mitsubiishi TV set, ask to borrow the remote for a short time, just to turn off the unwanted functions or to adjust the set. It will always pay though in the long run to get a remote used from E-bay or from a yard sale. Good Luck. PS Please do not forget to rate this.

Will a universal remote work? How to access the menu?

A universal remote can work with your TV, but whether it can access the menu depends on the specific model of both the TV and the universal remote. Universal remotes are designed to be compatible with a wide range of devices, including TVs, DVD players, audio systems, and more. However, not all universal remotes have the same features or compatibility with every function of a specific TV.
Here are the general steps to set up a universal remote with your TV and access the menu:
  1. Check Compatibility:
    • Ensure that your universal remote is compatible with your TV model. The packaging or user manual of the universal remote should list compatible brands and models.
  2. Find the TV Code:
    • Locate the code for your specific TV model in the documentation that came with the universal remote. The manual should include a list of codes for various TV brands.
  3. Program the Universal Remote:
    • Follow the instructions in the universal remote's manual to program it for your TV. This usually involves entering a code that corresponds to your TV model.
  4. Testing:
    • After programming, test the basic functions like power, volume, and channel to ensure that the universal remote is working with your TV.
  5. Accessing the Menu:
    • Most universal remotes have a dedicated "Menu" button or a button labeled with a similar term. Press this button to access the menu on your TV.
    • If there isn't a specific "Menu" button, look for a button with an icon that resembles a list, settings, or options. Sometimes, these buttons serve the same purpose.
    • If you're unable to find a dedicated button, refer to the universal remote's manual for guidance on accessing the menu or adjusting settings.
  6. Navigating the Menu:
    • Once you've accessed the menu, use the arrow buttons or navigation buttons on the remote to move through the menu options.
    • Some universal remotes may have an "OK" or "Enter" button that you can press to select a menu option.

HTR-5750: How to access menu without remote control?

Unfortunately, you need the remote or a universal remote which matches the original remote to access the menus. The manual for the HTR-5750 is available here: https://usa.yamaha.com/files/download/other_assets/5/319575/HTR_5750_5740.PDF Amazon lists a few vendors with an equivalent remote.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I have set the t.v. up with a magnavox universal remote control, and I can't find the up and down or left to right to hookup wifi

If you are trying to set up WiFi on your TV using a Magnavox universal remote control, you may need to use the remote's navigation buttons to access the TV's settings menu. These buttons are typically labeled "Up," "Down," "Left," and "Right," and they are used to navigate through the TV's on-screen menus. To use them, follow these steps:
  1. Press the "Menu" or "Settings" button on the remote to access the TV's settings menu.
  2. Use the "Up," "Down," "Left," and "Right" buttons to navigate through the menu options.
  3. Select the "Network" or "WiFi" option and follow the on-screen instructions to set up your WiFi connection.
If you are unable to access the TV's settings menu using the remote's navigation buttons, you may need to refer to the user manual for your TV or universal remote for more detailed instructions. Alternatively, you may need to contact Magnavox or the manufacturer of your TV for assistance.

I need a remote for a Yamaha DSP A3090, Yamaha part VT974300. I'm OK with a universal remote as long as it can access and navigate the on-TV menu.

Be careful - most universal remotes only control the most basic of functions, volume change, channel change, mute, on/off. They rarely include operation of sources, menus, etc.

U are , no doubt, going to need an original unit for the menu access.
Check for remote on ebay or google.

How to get unit to play without remote

You can probably use the front panel buttons (STOP PLAY OPEN/CLOSE etc) manually, the only thing you cannot do without the remote is access certain DVD menus, including subtitles/language/special features etc. You can always obtain and use a universal remote for basic menu functions later on if necessary.

To play a DVD movie without the remote, simply load your preferred disc, wait for the player to finish reading its contents, then to skip copyright warnings and/or the 'play movie' menu screen, press STOP, then PLAY, or simply press PLAY button where 'play movie' (or whatever function) is highlighted in the menu. These buttons should be on the front of the main unit. Doing this should encourage the player to detect the appropriate title (the movie) and play it (basic playback operation may not be possible with some DVD releases due to the numerous interactive menus and title pages, such as film trailers).

If basic manual operation is not completely possible with some DVD titles, consider a universal remote for your player if you have either lost your original, or the player was purchased/received without one. Such remotes are relatively inexpensive to purchase, and are available just about everywhere.

Zenith B27A11Z 27" TV, can't get into menu, original remote gone

Most universal or multi-brand remotes will control a TV's basic functions, but almost none will support advanced functions like menus. If the TV doesn't have a front panel menu button, the best solution is to buy a universal remote of the same brand as the TV. If you get a Zenith universal remote, it should have a menu button that will work with the TV.

Zenith h32h38dt 32

The "H" model Zenith TVs are hotel/motel sets designed that
a roomer cannot access the menu feature. Your best bet would
be to purchase a name brand universal remote which has the
menu button feature or order an original Zenith master remote
which would not require programming. Once you have a workable
remote which will allow you to access the on-screen menus you
should be able to program the channels.
Hope this helps,
