Re: How do I switch to Av manually?
You may have to get an exact replacement to get ALL the set's functions to operate. Universal remotes don't let you access all the functions of some TV's
If you can use the buttons on the front of the set to bring up the menu, you may be able to scroll through it and find where you can select the type of input you want. You would select AV.

Without remote control you can't change its mode to AV. Buy one "Atlas OCAP 5-device remote control; by Universal Electronics. Emerson is listed to very short numbers of universal remotes, and this is one amoung them. The codes will be with the attached manual, and you can choose if from it. OK.
There should be channel buttons on the TV itself, try using those. Also, you may want to try changing the input from the Cable Box. I am curious as to why the remotes don't work. Also, how did it get onto channel one. Did you get the TV used? Here is a link to the AV Science Forum. It seems other people have challenges with this TV as well. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=745952
Philips is the maker Magnavox. You can find their array of remotes >>Here<< and >>>Here<<< and find a replacement at your local Best Buy or even Ebay (That's where I found one for my old DirecTv receiver!) If you want more details - Just ask! Thanks! Len
good day , what button can you see infront of your TV screen?
Not familiar with this model but if you'll manage to locate a button marked as "TV/AV" or "AV" press this button until it the display switch to A/V mode (audio/video). Or if this is a really old model, from Tuner mode or channel model. set the channel station to 1 then press the " - channel " button and see if it will change from tuner mode to A/V mode
have you tried buying a universal remote? you can get a decent one for
£10 these days from any electrical store, such as curry's or maplins.
it gives you a 3 digit code for the tv to link up with the remote and
then you can switch over to av. some hitachi tv's also link up to av
automatically if you connect your game station via scart socket (in the
back of the tv) if you turn the tv off and link your wii up to the back
and make sure the power is turned on before the tv is switched on,
there's a chance the tv will auto detect the av channel. not all do but
it's worth a try. hope this helps!
