Question about RCA DIRECTV Satellite Remote Control

1 Answer

Use of TV code 1235 disables remote for directv receiver

I have 2 different RCA Directv universal remotes (one gray, one black/red) and a Philco/Magnavox TV. I know how to use the remotes to select and control different devices.

When I program either remote for the TV with the Automatic Search method or directly with code 1235, the remote can control the TV but the remote is no longer able to control the Directv receiver. I can not program the aux to control the receiver either.

If I reset the remote (by removing the batteries and holding the "1" key), the remote can again control the receiver, but of course it can not control the TV.

Am I missing something? Is there a way around this problem, or is it simply a case of "defective by design"? It is hard to understand why this should happen, particularly when automatic search mode is used!

PS - Using one RCA remote for the TV and the other for the receiver is not an OK answer 8-).

Could you please tell me how to reset my tv? I have a blue screen


What should I do if my TV screen turned black, blue, or gray? print.png Print try this.

Proceed with the troubleshooting steps below only if you're seeing:
  • Black, blue, or gray screen
  • "No Signal" message without the DIRECTV logo
Note: If your TV screen appears "frozen" or you're seeing wavy lines or overlapping images, try this.
Solution 1: Check that your TV is set on the right input
[img border="0" alt="Image" src="https://cdns.directv.com/cms2/global/icons/sm_cl_blu__number1_icon.png">Turn your TV and receiver off and back on.
[img border="0" alt="Image" src="https://cdns.directv.com/cms2/global/icons/sm_cl_blu__number2_icon.png">Using your DIRECTV remote control, press the TV Input button to cycle through TV inputs (Component, HDMI, etc) until you see a picture. If nothing happens when you press the button, try programming your DIRECTV remote to control your TV Input and try again.

Note: You can also try changing the TV Input using your TV remote.

Still not seeing a clear picture?

Solution 2: Reset Your Receiver
[img border="0" alt="Image" src="https://cdns.directv.com/cms2/global/icons/sm_cl_blu__number1_icon.png">On some DIRECTV receivers there is a red reset button located inside the access card door on the front panel. Press it, then wait for your receiver to reboot.

Note: If you cannot locate the red reset button or your receiver does not have one, unplug the receiver's power cord from the electrical outlet, wait 15 seconds, and plug it back in. Then press the Power button on the front panel of your receiver and wait for your receiver to reboot.

Emerson Jumbo Universal Remote won't program Direct TV receiver.


Have you tried doing this:
Press and hold the TV button on the remote till all 4 buttons light up and flash(make sure your TV is on). Once they flash, press the power button, then using the channel up button, point the remote at the TV and keep pressing it till the TV turns off. When it does, press the # sign and that will lock in the new found code.

Hope that helps........

Directv remote will not program to rca L42FHD37R. What is the code? I have tried all of the codes given by Directv.


"This TV utilizes new remote control signal codes and may not be compatible with your existing universal remote (e.g. satellite box remotes, cable box remotes, generic universal remotes, etc.). Over time, newer universal remote controls that become available should pick up the new TV codes."
