My baby grand daughter has somehow pushed the remote for this 20 year old tv and now it continually has program features scrolling down the screen. I'm told it has happened before and can be rectified using the remote but nobody can remember exactly which buttons to push to stop this function. It is very annoying with this always on the screen but we are reluctant to part with this old tv as it has given us years of reliable service. Unfortunately the book for this tv has long since been lost and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Sanyo Pro-Ponent 14 inch tv
It is due to vertical section.
in tv there is one control called vertical hold control.
scrolling down the screen will be ok if you adjust it .
if you are not tech.person call tech for help.
as you say that it is 20 years old .

I can understand the concern and wanting the remote to work the TV Menus. It is possible with our remotes, however it depends on the TV itself. I've seen instances where there are 2 TV's in one house, and 1 will do it, while the other won't.
If you have tried all of the remote codes, and none work, the only other options we have available are to try a powr scan, or teach the remote. This link http://www.mydish.com/support/teach-learning-remote-20-21 can provide the steps on how to teach that model of remote control!
You should be okay just buying any generic universal remote. Any remote requires programming to work with a specific TV, but universal remotes are easily programmable. The instructions included with the universal remote will detail how you program that remote to work with your TV (usually along the lines of simply putting it in programming mode, and pressing the power button until it turns your TV off, and then locking it in)
Thanks for your time. My husband tried to fix the problem and we could not use the remote at all. So he gave up. Our 28 year old daughter called DirecTV and was able to fix the problem and even give us better access to other programs. My husband had inadvertently programmed the tv opposite of what it should have been.
I determined that the Philco Remote Control that I wanted to program for use on a Magnavox tv was too old (20+ Years) and dead. It also did not have the features of a new Universal Remote. So, I tosed the Philco remote and purchased a new Universal Remote Control.
I don't have a code book for you, but I can tell you how to program the RCR660 using the automatic programming feature.
Programming RCA model RCR660 (no code search button) While following these instructions, keep the following in mind: device = the component you wish to control with your remote (TV, DVD, VCR, etc.) DEVICE = the button labeled for the component you wish to program 1. Turn on the device you wish to program. 2. Turn off all other devices in the general vicinity. 2. Press and hold DEVICE 3. While holding DEVICE down, press ON/OFF and hold them both down until the LED turns on for that device. 4. Release both buttons. 5. Point the remote at the device, press and release PLAY and wait 5 seconds or until the LED stops flashing. 6. If the device does not turn off, then continue to press PLAY and wait the required interval (for a maximum of 20 times) until the device turns off. 7. When the device turns off, press REVERSE, wait two seconds and continue doing this until the device turns back on. 8. To finish programming, press and hold STOP until the LED turns off.
