Remote will not change channels

Remote will turn tv on and off, it will change inputs( antenna, inputs 1-8)and volume control. It will not change channels, either by up/down button, # buttons, favorites buttons. Menu button won't work and most other functions don't work. I have replaced batteries with 6 different new AA alkaline batteries and tried the remote reset proceedure in manual.

If you are using the original remote, it has failed.

SOURCE: My remote will not perform

If you have fresh batteries in your remote and its still not working, then try another remote and if you can't get another remote to work with the TV then you know its not a remote problem and its more then likely a problem with the IR sensor in the Plasma TV.

If thats your case after doing your troubleshooting then see if your Pioneer Plasma tv is under warranty, if it is contact Pioneer to get the TV covered under warranty. If its not then you would need to contact Pioneer to get the part # for the IR sensor on the plasma tv.

Then depending on price you can buy it from them or do a search on google to find the best price for the IR Sensor.

I have a Sharp TV model LC-32SB24U. I cannot access the menu screen because I lost the remote control. Is there another way I can change channels without a remote?


The Sharp LC-32SB24U has menu, input, volume up/down and channel up/down buttons on the top of the TV. When you access the Menu using the buttons on the TV, the Input button is the same as the Enter key. The volume up/down buttons map to the left and right arrows. The channel up/down buttons remain up and down. The Menu button is the closest to the power button (on the right). The volume buttons are the ones on the left.

Make sure that the input is set to TV to change channels. Then you need to program the available channels, access the Menu and navigate to Setup (left/right arrows). Press Input to enter this sub-menu. Then use the Up/Down arrows to select CH Setup. Press Input again to enter. Now you can set the channel source and let the TV scan for channels that have a strong enough OTA signal or are unencrypted cable channels. These are the top two options in the Channel Setup menu. The details are available in the manual which is available here: http://static.highspeedbackbone.net/pdf/Sharp_LC37SB24U_LC32SB24U_Manual.pdf . For OTA channels, you may need to check the signal strength under the Antenna Setup - Digital option in this Setup menu. OTA Digital signals will not be tuned in if the signal strength is low. It's an all-or-none tuning; amplifiers and external antennas may help. See tvfool.com for details of transmitters and the recommended antenna for your area. (Warning: damaged amplifiers can become filters and block the signal on some channels. Replace the amplifier if it is damaged.)

If you look to replace your original remote with a universal remote, you'll need one that was programmed more than 6 months after the TV was released. That may be 12/2005 based on the manual copyright date. Look for a remote that has a Menu and Input or Source button and check all of the codes to find one that matches all of the features on your original remote. Amazon has an OEM remote for the LC-32SB24U; remotes.com also has a replacement remote available that has been programmed for the TV. (On remotes.com, search for the LC32SB24U.)

I hope this helps.

I can not change channel con dish control


Verify that your TV input is set to whatever connection is used for the receiver box. If it is the cable/antenna input, make sure the TV channel is set to the receiver's output channel (usually 3 or 4).

It's possible the remote control's channel buttons are worn out, but usually one button will go flaky before the other (multiple presses required to go up channel or down channel; they would not both quit abruptly. It's even more unlikely that all of the number buttons would simultaneously fail while leaving volume and power buttons intact. They aren't organized that way inside the control. I'd sooner expect a problem with the receiver - maybe its remote pickup window is dirty. (If there is a smoker in the house, lightly dampen a tissue or cotton swab with soapy water and gently wipe off the window. Repeat until there is no tar visible on the window.).

Orion TVD2710. Lost remote, can't change signal input


I would suggest you try to find a universal remote that has an "input" or "source" button and program that one to your tv. By pressing the "source" or "input" button, it will change the input to the tv. I hope this helps! -Der Strom

No antenna tv signal


Your dish remote should be set to the code for your TV. Then you will be able to control the channel number, not just up/down, as well as volume and maybe even the input. But do try to get a real remote for your TV so you can get to its menus.
Meanwhile, use menu+menu to see the channel being output by the Dish receiver. (Must be a 622/722... based on the 60 you listed.) Try to find an unused UHF channel number that your set does have in its up/down list. Match Air/Cable setting of Dish and TV. The Dish output is analog (NTSC) although the tuner(s) only accept digital (ATSC).

TV input


it is likely that your tv is interpreting a random button on your remote as a signal sent for it to change inputs, next time this happens turn the tv off and back on and note what comes up on the screen, for example video 1,

Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.

You need the original remote controller to be able to switch input modes.Universal ones usually don't work. If you don't have the original remote and can't find it ever or if it is too expensive you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your dvd player, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4 and other cable channels are still working,

You can buy the RF Modulator from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180299245670

From the manual (search Google for CM27101S): Normally, your TV displays the signal coming through the antenna terminal. However, If you?ve connected another component to your TV(such as a VCR) using the Video/Audio input, you will want to be able to view the signal from the component. To do this, you will need to switch from the ? TV ? input to the ? Line1, Line2 ? Input, as follows: 1 With the TV on, press the MENU button twice, then ? Set-Up ? menu will appear. 2 Use the WCHVbuttons to select ? Input ?. 3 Press the CVOLB buttons to change from ? TV ? to ? Line1, Line 2 ?. 4 Wait 10 seconds, or press the MENU button to return to normal TV viewing.
