1st u press and hold the TV button at the very top till all 4 lites lite up, then u press the big red power button. Once u do that u push the channel up button slowly till the tv turns off. Last step once the tv turns off press the pound button and turn the TV back on using the big red power button. Hope this helps.
Good Luck....Most Emerson's will not work with our remotes. However, you can sometimes get one to work using a channel scan. If that don't work, you can get a 21.0 remote from dish (or E-bay) and you can actually program that remote to learn from the original TV's remote.
