Does the universal remote work with the TV? Does it have an AV or source or input button?

It has a input button
Expert:  Dimmu TV replied 1 year ago.

Does it work with this TV? If it does use that input button and it should let you cycle through all the connections on the back. Stop when it gets to the cable one. The cable input may be labeled as antenna on this model. If this did not work, please come back and let me know what happened when you tried it by clicking on reply to expert so we can continue. If it did work, please don’t forget to leave a positive rating - it is greatly appreciated.

Oh ok I thought it was already working since this is an older model it may not be compatible with the universal remote. If it is not you can get an original replacement from here:

This remote you would not have to program or anything like that. Just put batteries in and press the input button.
