Question about Mitsubishi CS-26201 TV

3 Answers

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. :)

Make sure, that when any kind sole, gives you this nice Mitsubishi TV  for free......that they cough up the remote. If they can't find it,  offer to search their house for it.
You end up like me, having a nice TV, that will forever have the "Closed Caption" fxn on until you find that remote.

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 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.

Hi, my TV name Supra, model-ST21K33F. My original remote has been lost. now which remote I can use for this TV?

Get an original to replace. Universals have very limited functions and will not access menus, inputs, etc.

Check ebay - might get luck. Or go to attached link for help. MCM Electronics Home and Pro Audio Video Security and Test Equipment

Sanyo dp19648 remote won't work

You have narrowed it if a universal works but the original does not--95% of the time the remote can be fixed.

I can point you at what to look for---I will post a link to a tip of mine here on this site--if you have questions let me know.

In addition remote problems fall usually into three areas:

1. something got spilled on remote

2. remote was dropped and the little led that sends signal is broken from the board or another solder connection was cracked.

3 issues with the battery connections dirty or loose.

You are going to have the original remote and the owner manual to do this--Universal remotes never had or will have key features the original one has.

I wnat to unlock my tv without the remote control

If you are referring to a parental block you are able to over ride that. It usually requires having the access code that came with your set and the original remote control. The universals won't normally allow access to the menus required.

I suspect that you may have the ability to do that from the front panel also. You will find that information in the owners manual... You will need to contact the manufacturer online to see if an owners manual is available online. Most of them are if the set is new enough. You will need the complete model number from the back of the set for that.

This is assuming that there is not a defect in the television itself that is always a possibility but less likely than it's a parental block situation and you will need the specific access code to override that.

Philips universal remote codes

For the universal remotes, most of the models have their own code proprietary set. There is no industry standard. You must look in the romote's instructions to have the proper code settings.

Not all universal remotes will work with all models of TV sets. The combinations of the protocols for the codes are in the many thousands!

You will find that with the universal remotes they are very limited to accessing the features in the set. The universal remotes are only good for the basic functions. You will need the original remote to do any serious operations and to access the internal menus of your set.

Call the manufacture support for your set to find out how you can order the original. You would be better off.

We lost the remote and can not change the television from cable to VCR. I need to know how to do this without the remote.

You need the original factory remote. A universal remote will not be able to access the menus. Enquire to the manufacture to find out the process to order a replacement remote.

Remote wont work

Our experience is that most "Universal" remotes do not support the menus used to adjust Akai product. I don't know who the US distributers of Akai are but if the original remote is still available this is usually the best way to access the menus & adjust the set. Some operating instructions may be available as PDF files online & it might be worth searching for them to get the best results.

Remote Broken

If you're looking to make the universal work with the Insignia Tv you need to research the remote (model/brand) to the Tv. You can do this at:
It would be my strong suggestion however that you purchase the original because no universal remote will allow you access to the service menus and all the features.. You can buy the original for about $32.00 plus shipping at :

Hope this helps!
