Question about LG XBR342 DVD Recorder / VCR Combo

1 Answer

Remote Control My LG DVD/VCR Remote Control doesn't work. It doesn't need new batteries (tried that twice) and there is nothing interfering with the signal that I'm aware of. The machine itself is fine, but just won't respond to the remote. Any ideas?

I have just purchased a magnavox blue ray dvd player, but I cannot get the dvd player to operate after I press the startup button on thed remote.Can you please help me. Thanks

naturally, make sure everything is plugged in correctly, and that the batteries in the remote or charged.
if the player is new, you might want to check the manual to make sure you are operating it correctly.

if the player is not new, and has worked in the past, then the problem is probably something trivial like batteries, or wearing out of the iod on the remote, the plastic on the button in the remote, or something interfering with the signal.

Remote control does not work I have put in new batteries

Just make sure if you press anything, you see light on the remote control (usually green or red). This has nothing to do with your dvd recorder but having the batteries placed right, or having the remote control not being damaged.

If you see the light, a common mistake here is that your remote control is on the wrong stance. When pointed at the dvd recorder, you need it in dvd stance. On your remote control, you see "TV/VIDEO" "VCR" "DVD" and "SOURCE" on top under your "on/off" button. Make sure you press DVD first, or the DVD will not react on your signals.

If this does not solve it, don't hesitate to tell me.

Panasonic DMR-ES45V - DVD recorder / VCR combo Remote not workin

My remote is not working. When I press a button, I get the following message on my unit: U12, U30, SET #, CHK REMOTE #, or RC #. What can I do to fix this? The message displayed means that the remote control and unit are not communicating and the remote needs to be programmed. To program the remote, press and hold the same number that is displaying on the unit and the [ENTER] or [OK] button for more than 2 seconds. For example, if the unit displays “SET 2”, press and hold [2] and [ENTER] or [OK] for more than 2 seconds.

Need dvd code for symphonic WF104 I am using a scientific atlanta remote control

I'm guessing you have tried these already, but, you can try:

2017, 2213, 1029, 1134, 1150

if it is the ER1

014, 186

If that doesn't work, try a search by doing this:

Turn on the device.
2. Press and hold SELECT and the appropriate mode key (CBL, TV, VCR, DVD, or
AUX) until the mode keys blink twice. For example, to search for a TV code, press
and hold SELECT and TV at the same time.
Note: If you reassigned mode keys, you may, for example, press SELECT and
VCR to search for a TV code to assign to the VCR mode key.
3. Press 9 9 1. The mode key you selected in step 2 blinks twice.
4. Point the remote toward the device, and press PLAY . The remote automatically tests each code in its library, beginning with the most common codes. The mode key blinks once each time the remote transmits a new code. The mode key
blinks twice when it reaches the last code.
5. As soon as the device powers off, press SELECT.
6. Verify the new code is correct by pressing POWER.
7. Did the device power on again?
• If yes, press SELECT to assign the code.
• If no, complete the following steps:
a) Turn the device on.
b) Press channel up or channel down to step forward or back to the correct code.
c) When the device turns off, press SELECT to assign the code.

DVD recorder DMR EZ27EB

The remote control code is wrong. Change to the correct code. The batteries are depleted. Replace them with new ones. Point the remote control at the remote control sensor on the main unit. Remove obstacles between the remote ccontrol and the main unit. Remove dust from the transmission window and the unit's sensor. Colored glass may obstruct the signal reception/transmission. Don't place the signal sensor in direct sunlight or in areas that be subject to sun exposure. It may be necessary to set the code on the remote control again after changing the batteries. It may be necessary to set the manufacture code again after changing the batteries.
I hope this info can be of some help to you. Ms Tanya 2/12/08 4:02AM CST.
