I bought a 2nd hand CRT TV for testing my Nintendo Famicoms, which have only RF output.
Found a Sharp VT1428M with original remote. This is a PAL/SECAM/NTSC compatible TV, seems originally for the Russian market.
Anyway, the problem is that some of the remote buttons don't respond the way they should. Most buttons are OK (volume, channel, numbers), but when I press MENU and then + to browse through the menus, the TV turns off. Press + again turns it on.
Other keys seem to be completely off too, like the "VHS Play" button is a shortcut to channel 9, and "VHS Stop" is a shortcut to channel 32. I have no idea what's going on.
Also, using channel up and down, the tv misses many channels, e.g. it jumps from 1 to 4, then up to 9, then to 32. But I can select all channels manually with the _/_ _ function.
The remote was very dirty when I got the set, so I opened it and cleaned it completely.
Any ideas what the problem may be?
(Oh, and, I can't get a picture from the Famicom, that's why I wanted to access the menu, to try to scan all channels or do something from there.)
