Question about Toshiba CZ27T31 27" TV

1 Answer

I lost the remote to my Toshiba cz27t31. I bought an RCA universal remote. The RCA manual says the tv should be set to channel 1. But I can't change the channel without the remote. So I am SOL! How can I change the Toshiba channel to 1 without a remote? The channel buttons do work, but they skip over channel 1. It starts by skipping to channel 4 then channel 9, channel 11, etc. Is there a cheat using a combination of buttons on the tv/ that will let me get to channel1? Thanks!

  • You have to set the channel you want as a favorite first and you can do this from the TV. This is why the channels skip as you press up and down. Sometime or another those were someones favorite channels.
  1. Press "MENU" on the TV until "SET UP" appears on the screen.
  2. Now press ^ or v until "FAVORITE CH" appears in purple.
  3. Now press < or > to display the favorite channel FAVORITE CH menu.
  4. You will use < or > to got between "SET and "CLEAR."
  5. So now go to "SET" and press ^ or v until you get to channel 1.
  6. If you want to delete a channel first then select "CLEAR" and then add the channel you wish.
  • What your doing when you push the channel up and down on the TV buttons is going through the favorite channels. So make one of the favorite channels channel 1 and program your remote.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

My rca remote turns the toshiba tv on but it dont change channels


U are using an RCA remote with Toshiba tv. You are lucky that it even turns the set on. You have different remote frequencies involved and need to use the Tosiba remote or a universal remote that will operate volume, channels and power.

I bought a rca tv from a hotel closing down it didnt have the remote to it and I cant access all my channels how can I reprogram it with a universal remote


The universal remote will have several possible codes that can be used to work your TV. If the one you have programmed in is not doing the job reprogram another code. If only one code exists then you have a remote that is not fully compatible with your set. Some of the universal have this issue. Some of the RCA set required a dedicated and locked in remote. You would have to contact RCA and tell them your model number and serial number to get another remote. Beware these can get really expensive. I have included a site that you can use to find codes just in case you have lost that little paper that has the codes. http://www.rca.com/support/remote-control-support/

Universal remote works for basics but won't change input


Rich,

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

cheers,
mark
