Your TV is made by Daewoo and is distributed by Daytek. If you call the 800 number on the warranty card you will reach Daytek.
So, what you need to know is this:

#1. A lot of new products won't have a website available. That does not say anything to their quality or the company, just that you've bought a new product and you're one of the first purchasers.

#2. A lot of times if you buy a "no name" TV, you're actually getting components inside the TV that are made by brand name manufacturers. For example, "Prima" uses LG panels in some of their plasma TVs (as well as Daytek). How do I know this? Because I'm the authorized service provider for Daytek, and Prima and quite a few other "no name" TVs, and I've been working on LCD and Plasma since they came out, as well as having worked in the electronics repair industry for over 20 years. I own an Insignia 42" LCD and am quite happy with it.

#3. Most new products that have remote controls will not have codes available for them no matter what brand of universal remote you buy. You have to wait for the people who make the universal remote to have time to make a code for this new brand of TV. This can take up to a year for cable companies, and cheaper universal remotes may never get the code. Expensive universal remotes may be able to have their firmware updated through the internet, so adoption of new codes for new products may happen faster.

#4. Stores like Walmart and Costco are excellent places to buy products like this because they usually have a "no questions asked" return policy if you get the TV back to the store within the stores time limit for returns (some stores are 15 days, some are 30 days, phone the store and ask them). I had purchased a 40" Digistar LCD TV from Walmart what had a flickering problem, I took it back the next day without any problem at all. Then I bought a 42" Insignia Plasma TV from Future Shop that I wasn't happy with. I took it back 3 days later and had no problem at all. As long as you know the stores policy for returns and follow the policy, you won't have any problems either.

#5. Try to avoid buying big-ticket items from smaller stores unless you know their return policies. Some smaller stores will not accept returns on LCD monitors, TVs or plasma TVs but instead require you to handle any problems through the manufacturer.

#6. Best bet it to call Daytek and ask them if they know of any universal remotes that work on that particular model.

SOURCE: Can't find codes for universal remote -- purchased for Vizio TV

Unfortunately, there does not seem to be any truly 'universal' remotes and we have two that won't 'learn' from the originals either. They should be called 'multibrand' remotes.
Use your Vizio model number of your set and try here:
Remotes 
This seems to be the best site but they are also not infallible.

I have a Sharp tv im trying to program a lg universal remote. I have no codes and can i even do that?


Universal remotes usually have a "Learn" capability.

First you need to figure out how to get into learn mode.

Then you face the Learning Remote IR LED to the current Remote LED. You select the Key or Button one the learning remote that you want to pick up, Then click the similar button on the current remote that is Teaching. The IR signal is picked up by the learner and indicates it has been received correctly.
Then the next key is done

Good Luck

Codes universal remote will any universal remote work on my system


Most universal remotes have many codes for many manufacturer's products stored in them. They may not have the exact code for your device, but they probably have codes that will work most of the functions of your device. If you'd like one that has direct mapping to keys, you'll need a learning remote. These remotes allow you to point your remote's IR emitter at the learning remote's IR emitter/receiver and map any or all of the buttons to the buttons you choose. On mine, I created a spreadsheet ahead of time that shows what buttons are mapped to which commands.

Remote says "blaster not responding".


Hi. If the blaster is not responding for your Harmony 900 remote, it could be caused by RF interference. Usually power cycling the blaster fixes this, but since that did not help I would look for sources of interference. This can be anything from an RF baby monitor, microwave oven, wireless Internet router, cordless phone, or any other RF device. If you have any of these things in the room where you use the blaster, try moving them out and testing it again.

My Sony Bravia doesnt work with remote control, with any remote including universals


You didn't include the Sony Bravia model that you own - so I can't be more specific. If the TV is set up to use RF (radio frequency) codes instead of IR (infrared) codes; the universal types probably will not work. This is because most universal remotes are the IR type.

The remote included with your TV may have inadvertently be switched to send the codes as an IR type while the TV will respond only to RF type codes. It may also be that the TV was changed to respond to RF codes only. Either way, check your manual (or your TV menu settings) to see how to set the TV and the remote to work in the same mode.

If you can't find your manual, reply with your TV's model number - and if possible the remote's model number, too. I'll see what I can find that is specific to your TV.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

I have a Panasonic home theater and am looking for a code that will work with either a starchoice IRC 550 or shaw direct ir/rf 600 remote


http://www.shawdirect.ca/images/support/downloads/550_Manual.pdf
This is the manual for the irc 550 ..and in the manual you have the codes for audio (cd ) which I believe to be the ones you need to use..They are on the end of the manual ..But ! If you read the manual carefully you see that it actually can pick-up the codes automatically if you follow certain programing procedure.described in the manual ..

I have a hr21-700 and bought a universal remote (logitech harmony 900) and the unit will not respond to rf commands? I went throught the setup process in the menu option, help


The DVR must be set to use IR instead of RF. The RF Blaster that comes with the remote converts the RF from the Harmony remote to IR commands.

We own the Logitech Harmony 550 universal remote and recently purchased the Insignia NS-L32Q-10A for some reason we can't get the Logitech to work with the Insignia, any suggestions?


Does the device not respond at all?

You can try learning the commands from the original remote to ensure that they are correct.

1. In the software, click 'Learn IR' next to the icon for the device. 2. Go through the list of commands and learn the ones you think you will need by clicking 'Learn'.

The important commands of course are the power commands and input commands. Also channel and volume commands.

Hope that helps :)

Hi there

A universal remote would do the job , as long as you make sure that the Universal Remote can learn IR codes which it uses to control the Projector.

IR frequency determination


The remote could be using RF, which is why your Niles equipment cannot handle it. There is no way to duplicate the RF or convert it to an IR signal.

If the remote is using IR, make sure the batteries are full and the light is low when you are learning the codes with tne Niles equpment. There is no way if it's IR that the freq is > 100.
