Found the answer but it doesnt help.......i got the number to who makes RCA remote controls and called them and talked to tech support to see what i could do for this problem. According to them, some universal remotes are compatible with most tvs but sometimes the remote can only give you the basic functions (chan up/down, volume up/down, #'s, mute an so on.) i dont really understand why it wouldnt work for the input channel but i do know i have a lower end and low priced tv. so....just like everything else the more you pay...the better it is. I checked the remote on my other tv in the living room and everything works just fine, even the input button. Hope this helps...

How do I change the channel on my Emerson LC320EM3FA 32" flat screen TV? I've tried the auto programming that does not work. When I press the channel button on the TV, it just changes the source...

Has it detected any channels? Are you connected to Cable TV wire or antenna? Has it worked before? Without it detecting channels, all it can do is change inputs.

Emerson EWF2006 TV access code

if your tv doesnt have a digital tuner, you cant, unless you have a digital to analog tuner converter (can be purchased in walmart, or other stores that carry tv s, electronics) you tune your tv to 3 or 4, use the converter box to scan for channels, and for changing channels instead of your tv tuner

My TV will not register channels

Think that your tuner section has been compromised by the surge. Happens. If your other audio/video inputs work you can plug an external tuner in there.

What channel does the tv have to be on to play a dvd

it doesnt mater what channel the tv is on, find the source or input button on the remote. when you press source button a list of input devices should display on the screen,the source you want should be VIDEO but it all depends on what input the player is connected.With the player on as you scroll through each of the items listed on the source menu no mater what input the device is connectedthe dvd player welcome menu will appear on the screen.if this doesnt work check to make sure the RCA cord is connected to video out(yellow)and audio out(white and red) on the player then on the tv there will be several input options any ony should work as long as it is an input port but ideally you want to use the one marked video/DVD in.

TV does't register the Nintendo

Probably so, if the video cables match up color wise then you should be ok there. Try changing the INPUT / SOURCE on the TV. Look for a button on the remote that says that and try different modes and inputs there. If you can't find that button try going to channel 2 on the TV and then going DOWN in channels with the the channel + - button.

Every TV is different in that regard.

Hope this helps

Lost remote control for an emerson tv. how do you change input from channel to video without the remote?

I just purchased one of these televisions and it didn't come with a remote. However, a Philips Universal Remote (SRU2103/27)
with a code 0520 works fine. I haven't explored all the codes but I can easily change from tv stations to Video 1 and Video 2 merely by pressing the "Input" button on the remote.

Can't find the input/video channel for my Emerson TV

universal remotes are tricky, if you have the pamphlet, often times there are several codes for each brand. you have to try all the emerson codes for your universal even tho the power, volume and channel functions may work with several emerson codes, some of these specialized buttons (like input) may only work on your TV with one specific code.

also, if there are any unlabeled buttons on the universal try them with each new emerson code.

Programing my remote?

you should be able to hold down the desired function you want to program......(for tv, hold tv) since i dont know what tv brand your trying to get it to work with i can only suggest holding down the tv button after you turn on your tv manually and hit the channel up button until it changes the channel. turn of the tv with the remote and see if it turns it back on. if it works you should be good to go. hope this helps
