    We have a Sanyo AVM3659 with the same problem. Our universal remote does not have a reset button on it. Do we need to buy one?

    I have the exact same model tv, and problem. However, the above solution seems generic and does not seem to explain to fix the problem unless I have the original remote. Do I need a remote that has the "reset" button?

    My Sanyo TV is stuck on MENU. I can either get the MENU screen or it flips quickly from channel to channel. I cannot get out of MENU or stop the flipping. I only have a universal remote -- not the original one.

    Can you help?

    TV stuck in VIDEO mode. I only have a generic RCA universal remote. When I press menu on the tv it skips from language to auto/manual/game mode. The option to program tv stations is in RED not Green like the others? I think if I could auto program channels, I could get out of the VIDEO mode?

I have the remote for my sanyo mts tv but i cant find out how to get it to switch to video mode so i can play games on it there is no button

There is button on your remote labeled TV/AV . Press the button to get a blank screen with AV written on the screen. If your game device is connected at the back to this AV socket ( Yellow / Red / White ) you will see the game menu display.
On some of the TV remotes it might not be written TV/AV but INPUT SOURCE or just a picture of a TV screen with an arrow pointing inwards ( that LOGO is the universal symbol for INPUT )

There are universal remotes for around $5.00 at Wal-Mart. You can program them to your TV very easily.

Programming a remote

You should have instructions that came with your new remote that show you how to program specific buttons to specific functions. In general there is a similar button on universal remotes, it may be called input or some other button that implies changing the video source.

Good Luck

Sanyo DS31590 31" TV Can I get the tv to go into tv/video mode without a remote but from the tv menu directly?

Nope. Remote control is required... However some universal remotes come with this button available in the preprogrammed code. I had a cheap GE universal remote that I used to replace the original when my 2 year old smashed it. I now have a sony universal remote and it's default code (one of them) for Sanyo tv's also works for the video/input button.

Look on the remote for keys that are labled tv/vcr or source or input... In fact, if you go to the front of the unit - that's a Sanyo right - find the grouping of buttons that change the channel, volume etc.. There should be a button marked source or input there.. Press it as many times as it takes to get back to the input source your cable is on...
If you have any problems let me know...
