Hi Rod.

 

Its a portable first part of the model no is "T14TK".

HiCustomer

I get only a partial database response on that model number is XXXXX a Tatung TV? If so, are you located in the UK? I do not have any service information for that TV make, but I do have a source for a replacement remote if you are interested.

Thanks,
Rod

I am in the UK but I just want to use it as a monitor so do not need a remote just some way of getting it on to A/V.

HiCustomer

Since I have no technical documentation for that make and model, I cannot assist you. I will opt out and perhaps another expert can assist. But I will forewarn you, that a lot of TVs need the remote to change inputs. Some have a button called Input or Source, or the option of going to the menu with a menu button to scroll through the menu options.

Thanks,
Rod

HiCustomer

You can purchase a replacement remote from here in the UK. It may be your only option.

Only accept if this helps and you can provide positive feedback.

Thanks for the answer. But its not really helpful.

My question was how do i change to A/V on the tv without the remote.

I know were I can buy one but i dont really want to.

HiCustomer

I do not have any detailed information for that model. Some TV's have an input/select/source button on a panel, same as the power and channel switch. But a large majority of TVs these days have input select only capable with the remote. I will opt out and perhaps another expert can assist.

Thanks,
Rod
