Lost functionality w/ Universal Remote

I lost the original remote and bought a universal as a replacement. I can turn off the TV, change channels, etc., but for some reason the remote won't allow me to pull up the menu or switch from cable input to video input. I can't even find a way of switching the input from the front of the TV or in the menu. Any ideas?

Then the only way to reach your tv is through coaxial antenna port. So you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your red yellow and white cables (rca cables from a dvd, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me.

Sorry to have to tell you bud, there is no other way except with the original remote. Go to http://www.remotes.com and enter your model and you will see what you have to spend if you want to use your tv fully! Its about %* bucks + shipping. Good luck

Now, it depends upoon the Universal Remote u purchased. If your remote has the neccesary buttons - AV/TV switching,Front - Rear Input Switching, Menu, etc, it should work! Since there are multiple codes for every brand, keep feeding the various codes one by one, and checking if the neccesary functions operate. If, finally, you are unsuccesful, then, folow techman's advice. Best of Luck.

The remote only controls the volume, not the channels, etc.


Laura, If it is a universal remote you will have to reprogram to your TV with the correct code. If it is your original remote change the batteries, if original does not work after new batteries, replace it.
I will post links to how and set up universal remote and codes.

Why won't any universal remotes work with my LG tv?


The two possible reasons are:

1. None of the codes are correct for this model.

2. The remote infrared receiver in the set is bad.

(maybe the reason the other person got rid of the set?)

There are some ways around this depending on how you hook up and what you have for signal:

If a box (cable or sat) is connected to one of the sets of audio/video jacks on the set--switch to that input and change channels etc with the box!

Use the box remote for functions like channel and sound etc.

Universal remote code


I just bought one of those remotes to use on a Magnavox VCR because the buttons on the original remote are difficult to read (grey numbers on grey buttons).

The TV codes for Panasonic are: 0171, 0148, 0054, 0170, 0062, 0374, 0381, 0437, 0950, 0003, 0070. Good luck.

I had no luck with any of the codes given, so I tried the "Programming with Code Search" method and it worked.
1. Turn ON the device manually.
2. Press and hold the "P" button until the red light stays on.
3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.) The red light blinks, then stays lit.
4. Press Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the channel changes. (If you accidentally overshoot, press Channel Down to backtrack.)
5. Press and release the Enter button to set the code. (Mine doesn't have an "Enter" button, only an "ENT" button the left of the "0" and that didn't work, but I found the "M" button in the middle worked.)

You need the original remote controller to be able to switch input modes.Universal ones usually don't work. If you don't have the original remote and can't find it ever or if it is too expensive you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your dvd player, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4 and other cable channels are still working,

You can buy the RF Modulator from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180299245670
