    It is a brand new Magnavox unit and remote. When I press the setup buttom, the displat reads "E1" indicating where I have plugged in the wires ( rear vs front=E2). And that's all that happens in startup. Thanks for trying.

The remote buttons are probably dirty (coke or coffee). If you feel lucky you may be able to open the remote and clean the rubber pads and the copper traces on the circuit board with alcohol. Usually there are only one or two screws holding the remote together. One may be in the battery compartment and sometimes they hide one under a sticker on the back. Pay close attention when you take it apart because parts (buttons/springs) may fall out. Good Luck!

    You can try fresh batteries (not the one's that it came with). Most likely the whole thing is bad and you should take it back to the store and trade it in on a good one.

How to program a rcr804bfdr to a sanyo tv


Programming the RCA RCR804BR or RCR804BFDR Series Remote Control
Programming with Direct Entry:
To program your remote to control up to four components, follow these steps:
  1. Manually turn on the component you wish to program the remote to operate.
  2. Find the four-digit code for your brand of TV, VCR, DVD, satellite receiver, cable box, or digital TV converter in the enclosed code lists.
  3. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH key until the indicator light turns on.
  4. Release the CODE SEARCH key.
  5. Press and release the TV, VCR or SAT·CBL·DTC key. The indicator light blinks and then remains lit. Note: DTC references digital TV converter. To program the DVD·AUX key: Press the DVD·AUX key. To control a DVD, press the VCR key. To control a TV, press the TV key. To control a satellite receiver, cable box, or digital TV converter, press the SAT·CBL·DTC key. The indicator light stops blinking and remains lit.
  6. Enter the four-digit code, using the numeric keypad. After the code is entered, the indicator light turns off. Note: If the indicator light blinks multiple times, you've entered an invalid code. Start from step 2 again.
  7. Aim the remote at the component and press the ON·OFF key. The component should turn off. Note: If your component does not respond, try all the codes for your brands. If the codes do not work or your brand is not listed, try the Code Search Method that follows.
Programming with Code Search:
If your TV, VCR, DVD, satellite receiver, cable box, or digital TV converter does not respond after you have tried all the codes for your brands, or if your brand is not listed, try searching for your code via the Code Search Entry Method. To program your remote via the Code Search Entry Method, follow these steps:
  1. Manually turn on the component you wish to program the remote to operate.
  2. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH key until the indicator light turns on.
  3. Release the CODE SEARCH key.
  4. Press and release the component key you wish the remote to control- TV, VCR or SAT·CBL·DTC key. The indicator light blinks once and remains lit. Important: Find the ENTER key on your remote (don't press it yet). You will need to press this key quickly in step 6 below. To program the DVD·AUX key: Press the DVD·AUX key, followed by the component key you wish the DVD·AUX key to control. For DVD, press the DVD·AUX key, followed by the VCR key. For an auxiliary component, press the DVD·AUX key, followed by the corresponding component key ( TV, VCR, SAT·CBL·DTC ).
  5. Press and release the ON·OFF key until the component turns off. Important: You may have to press the ON·OFF key up to 200 times.
  6. As soon as the component turns off, press the ENTER key within 4 sec- onds. The indicator light turns off. Note: If you wait longer than 4 seconds to press ENTER, the remote goes to the next code-you will need to start the code search from step 1 again.

My remote control has broken.


I would check out the Harmony 510 remote control. It may be a little pricey but it is the best universal remote on the market for the money. It also allows you to control your DVD unit as well as your TV without the requirement of selecting which one. Harmony remotes are activity based in the you pick what you want to do such as “Watch TV”, “Watch DVD” , “Watch VCR” etc.. Then It turns the appropriate units on and then sets them to the correct input. Makes it real easy once set up. Another advantage is the IR codes are stored on line and constantly updated so new products and codes can be added.
Check it out:

I have a rca dvd recorder+vcr combo drc8320n i want to set up watching/changing cabletv channels on the dvd remote. i have tried buying universal remotes cheap& expensive but they no longer work on my


With cable input connected to "RF in"on rear of unit make sure vidoe input is set to "Tuner". This will show up on the TV screen. Change channels numerically or using up/down arrow keys on DVR remote. Note there is a slight pause between changing channels.You probably will have to "autoscan" for channel setup/etc. If you say your TV set is old; it probabaly is equiped with coax
connection only/set TV channel to "3" or "4". when yot opt to play vcr/dvd it will override your
cable channel selected. Hope this helps!

I need a remote code for a emerson lcd lc195em82


1. Manually turn on the component you want the remote to
control (TV, VCR, DVD, satellite receiver or cable box).
Note: If you press an invalid key during the Auto Code
Search, the remote does not respond and the illuminated
ON•OFF key does not blink. If you do not press a valid
Auto Code Search key (TV, VCR•DVD, SAT•CBL, ON•OFF,
GO BACK, PLAY, REVERSE, STOP), the search times out
after two minutes. When the search times out, the illuminated
ON•OFF key blinks four times and turns off. The last
programmed code under that component key is retained.
2. If you are programming your TV or satellite receiver, go
directly to step 4.
3. To program the remote to control a VCR or DVD. The
VCR•DVD key can control only one component, either your
VCR or your DVD. To program your remote to control
either your DVD or your VCR, you must first put the
remote in the proper programming mode. Follow these
directions before proceeding to step 4.
a. Press and hold the VCR•DVD key.
The illuminated ON•OFF key
turns on.
b.While holding down the
VCR•DVD key, press and release
the number 2 key on the keypad to
control a VCR or the number 3 key
to control a DVD. The illuminated
ON•OFF key blinks, and then turns
back on.
c.Release the VCR•DVD key.
The illuminated ON•OFF key
blinks four times and then turns
off. Your remote is now either in
VCR or DVD Programming Mode,
depending on which you chose.
Proceed to step 4.
4. Press and hold the component key
(TV, VCR•DVD, SAT•CBL) you wish
to program. The illuminated ON•OFF
key turns on and remains on.
5. While holding the component key
down, press and hold the ON•OFF
key. The illuminated ON•OFF key
turns off.
6. After holding down both keys for
three seconds, the illuminated
ON•OFF key turns back on.
7. Release both keys. The illuminated
ON•OFF key remains on.

VCR•DVD
VCR•DVD

TIP: Throughout the programming of each key, be sure to
keep the remote pointed at the IR sensor of the component you
are currently programming the remote to control.
8. Press and release the PLAY key,
then wait five seconds to see if
your component turns off. If your
component does not respond,
continue to press the PLAY key
every five seconds until your
component turns off. Each time you
press the PLAY key, the illuminated
ON•OFF key blinks and a block of
10 codes are sent to your component.
This process continues until all of
the codes in the Code Lists have
been searched. (If your component
has not turned off after all codes have
been searched, the illuminated
ON•OFF key blinks four times and
turns off. The Auto Code Search
Entry method is exited.)

11. To confirm that the component key is programmed with the
correct code for maximum functionality, test the component.
Attempt to control a variety of the component’s functions
with the remote. If some of the features of your components
do not work, try programming the remote with a different
code in the list until you find the code that allows the remote
to control the majority of your component’s functions.
Different codes can provide different levels of functionality.

This Remote is capable of transmitting two control codes; one set
to respond to A code control signals and another set to respond to
B code control signals. This Remote control is preset to send A
code signals because your VCR is initially set to respond to A code
signals. You can easily modify your VCR and the Remote to
respond to B code signals. When using two JVC VCRs, set two
VCRs and their Remotes to different codes, so that you can
operate these VCRs separately.
