How can I turn to AV without a remote control (Samsung TV/VCR 19in Combo)

I have a Samsung TV/VCR 19in Combo I have lost the remote and wish to use a playstation with it. The TV has a scart port and an additional AV point. Yet with out the remote I can not use. Is there a combo of buttons I can press on the front panel to change to AV input? I have tried an universal remote, however it only works on the VCR setting and does not allow AV change.

    I have the same problem, I have the samsung cxj1952 and I can't get the dvd player to work with the tv. I guess because I don't have the remote to switch the input.

I had this problem with my TV/VCR combo unit (Samsung CXC1972) after losing the remote while in the dorms. I tried a few different universal remotes and dozens of codes before I tried the Philips 3 device universal remote as pictured below with code 037 programmed into the VCR/DVD button. I can't change the volume with this code but the input key switches between line in and tv. You can also change the channel, access the menu and operate the VCR functions with the code. I bought the remote for less than $10 at Walmart so it might be worth a try, and if it doesn't work you can always bring it back. Hope this helps.How can I turn to AV without a remote control (Sam - 98fe8a9.jpg

How do i get vcr to work with tv

The connection would be ideally a SCART cable or a phono AV cable ( red, white, yellow) which are you using? Then turn on TV, then turn on VHS, if the VHS does not show on screen, press the AV/Mode button on remote until VHS on screen!

We have an old style(not slim) Playstation 3 and cannot get either av channel, on the TV detailed below, to play it. all plugs are plugged in. we have tried both scarts and the side (yellow, red, white)...

If you've used the HDMI port or another sort of connector and you're switching to a DIFFERENT connector, you need to default the video output on the PS3.
First, you need to plug the PS3 into your tv with just the cables you're going to be using.
Then, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
It should beep and a picture should appear on your screen.

How do i connect the vcr to the tv so it records on the channel i want. i tried recording but was a different channel. i do not have the remote for the vcr

If the TV has a scart socket and the vcr also, you can connect it that way, with a scart lead. Then all you need do is press the channel button on the VCR till it reads AV. There may be more than one AV socket so use the one with the connection of the scart lead, it should say on the scart socket what it is. IE: AV1. All you need do is set the channel on the TV you want to record, the press record.
You won't be able to watch another channel though while recording.
Some TV's with multi scart have options for AV settings or recording from the TV, so check these out.
Consider buying a universal remote.

How can I turn to AV without a remote control (Samsung TV/VCR 19in Combo)

you might try going to channel 00
If you cannot just dial the number 00, go to channel 2 and then channel down.
Does not always work, but without the model number of the TV it is hard to advise further

No sound on TV but VCR is OK

Hi there, This sounds like an input control error.
If you find the menu section, then choose Av inputs, you can adjust the settings, I.e. stereo Video or Av (if you are using scart leads then choose Av.
Hope this helps, Chris
