Having problems with your Standard (CRT) Televisions ?

Older RCA Entertainment Series tv won't change channels or control volume with remote.


\015 Tv seems to work fine in that it turns on at the set and I have sound and I can even control the volume from the set top and get to the menu (but only for the sound option) but I can't use remote and can't use buttons on set top to change channels --I have tried another remote with no luck. Am I just going to have to trash the tv?\015

I programmed my sudden link remote to my tv and turns my tv on an off, controls the volume, but when I try to change the channel of my television with the remote, the red cable light on the remote lights up as if it thinks I'm trying to tell it to change the channel on the sudden link channels and not the channels of my tv....help? (I know this sounds lazy because normally people would just say get up and change the channel but our tv buttons don't work and I don't have the original remote)
