correct key.

remote to the mode for the equipment

remote has fresh batteries, check
whether you put them in the right way.
If you didn't, take them out and put

• Make sure your TV (and VCR, if
connected) is tuned to the correct
channel. Also try using the Recover
button as described on page C-6.
