If you are fortunate enough to have a TV repair shop left in your area, they will have a simple device that will detect whether or not an IR remote is sending out any coded information at all. 
Unfortunately, because there are no standards in the coding schemes used, that tester cannot tell you if a specific remote will work with your set; the term 'universal' smells like a reason for a law suit, they should be called 'multi-brand' since I also have several, including 'learning' remotes that refuse to learn from Ilo or Olevia remotes.
The testers once cost ~ $30 US but checking eBay, I found one for $10:
IR Remote tester
It could be that the receiving end in the set, the IR receiver or its associated decoding circuitry has failed. 
The overall reliability of the sets (particularly flat panel) built within the past 5 years has really plummeted; there seems to be no company that is not impacted from this decline in quality. Part of the problem lays in the components (especially capacitors)  and these are all coming from China.

I have a TV of company texla vision 1444, I lost my remote, TV volume button is not work, pls suggest me where the remote is available or which remote is support.kindly solve my problem.regards


If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability. Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the sites.

If all other buttons works, except the ON/Off button, the remote is faulty.

My remote control does not operate my GVA TV, the batteries are good, the pair (remote/TV) just do not respond at all, no matter what buttons are pushed.


Hello,

If new batteries did not fix the problem, then it means the problem is either from the remote or the TV.

Remote: Check the remote battery terminal, see if its not rust. Also, disassemble the remote, can check the connection between the terminal and the remote board, see if there is no disconnection of any kind.

If after checking and all seems well, then it means the remote is defective. To confirm, borrow a remote, test it with the TV. If it works, then it means you need to replace your remote. But if the remote you borrowed does not work, then it means the problem is from the TV and not the remote.

TV: There is a sensor in the TV that communicates with the remote. If this sensor is defective, the remote won't communicate with the TV.

The TV sensor might have loosed contact from inside of the TV or it maybe defective and need to be replaced.

So do the above troubleshooting and let me know if the problem is from the TV or remote. If problem is from the remote, you need to do a replacement. But if otherwise, let me knows as well.

Good luck.

We lost the remote - how can we set the TV in a mode to watch a dvd


You could purchase a cheap (
That's assuming of course that there is no kind of TV / VIDEO or INPUT button somewhere on the front or the top / bottom of your tv that will allow you to manually switch back and forth.

Good luck and post back if this helps and with how you make out.

Cannot get RadioShack universal remote to connect with TV. Used codes listed time and again but with no success. Spent hours using automatic search, and, from time to time, the TV would switch off...


Hi,

On most RadioShack universal remotes, when you are running the automatic search, you have to press a button within 2 seconds of the TV switching off or it skips to the next code. If you fail to press the correct button within 2 seconds, the TV wont respond when you subsequently test the code.

I am not sure which is the correct button for your remote as you did not specify the model number of your RadioShack remote. On many models, it is any button other than the "SET" button.

Although getting the TV to switch off is an encouraging sign, there is still the possibility that your RadioShack remote will not work with your TV. There are hundreds of universal remotes, hundreds of TV brands and thousands of different models. This makes for an incalculable number of potential
combinations of remote and TV and many of these combinations simply don't work together.

If you have tried all of the codes supplied for your TV brand and completed the automatic scan with no success, then it's likely that you have one of the combinations that doesn't work. However, you
should ensure you are "setting" the code in the remote as soon as the TV switches off. For correct operation, please consult the instructions for your remote.

It is also possible that a code for a different TV brand will work for you as many TVs are not manufactured by the company with their badge on the front. If you can discover who manufactured the original TV (base-unit), then codes for this brand will sometimes work.

If you would like further assistance, please post back with the brand and model number of both your TV and the RadioShack remote. I will then be able to check on the correct programming instructions for your remote and possibly determine whether codes for another brand will work.

Regards,
BElectric

Looking for remote control code for Phillips/Verizon that works with the LD 4088


This is a solution for DISH NETWORK users that have the remote that comes with the system.

I just purchased my television yesterday and I did the same, as I spent about 3 hours searching online, and found about 600 codes to try, but ultimately, I didn't want to spend a month programming my remote. I ended up calling APEX the company and they gave me three codes: 591, 594, 11531. 591 didn't work for my tv, and 11531 is five digits meant for direct tv users, but 594 worked on my dish remote that came with the dish system. Hope this helps everyone, try the codes for yourself, you don't need to buy a new remote. I was told if these codes didn't work that you would have to call your cable provider to get the additional codes for your remote. The number I called and spoke directly with an APEX Representative was 866-427-3946.

Hello! I need the universal remote control for FLM3201 polaroid tv, do you know how i can buy this?


You can purchase a universal remote anywhere; walgreens, cvs, walmart, target, best buy etc...

I purchased mine at walmart for less than five bucks, GE Universal Remote. The code for this TV or any Polaroid isn't in the in package manual, so that kind of sucks. After serching online for a code for this mode, I found it fairly easily:

1019 is the code, just got it to work on mine.

Good luck!
