Question about RCA VR349 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Clearing program model vr616hf, original remote no good and long gone, universal remote can't clear a set program. When trying to get rid of it, can get so far and then prompt to press clear button, but there isn't one on the universal remote and unplugging the vcr doesn't work either. Any suggestions?

You are in a tough spot cause you probably keep the VCR to transfer old Tapes. FYI, did you know that DVD's have a shelf life of less than 10 years and VCR VHS tapes are good for 20 years plus? Keep your old tapes.

Write RCA and find out if you can get a new remote, it is basically the only solution.

Check with Ebay for a used one, you might get lucky.

How to I adjust the settings of a TV with a universal remote? I am using this TV as a computer monitor.


Firstly having tried TV's has a computer monitor, I personally wouldn't recommend one for that purpose. The screen appearance will never look as good as a proper monitor. Even a second-hand monitor will give you better picture quality, plus it will shut down when you power the system down.
Universal remotes have to be set up with the correct code for the make of TV and model. Not all codes will work all functions. Unless you actually know the correct code for your TV try all the other codes for the brand. Choose the best one.
Again the "Universal" on makes of remotes referrers to the fact you can get the basic functions for all makes of TV. It does not mean that it will work ALL functions on all TV's. The more expensive "universal" remotes will do more functions, but nothing will beat the "original" remote.

WHAT WEBSITE can i find a good stereo remote


Clearly you have searched, here is some advice:

1. When posting a question here or on other similar sites A BRAND AND MODEL NUMBER OF THE UNIT will encourage people to help you.

2. Some kind of explanation regarding what features you want (all of them) will also help.

3. People who snap a one line answer (I do that depending on wording of question) figure since little real info is given some answer is deserved on the faint chance it may actually help.

Experts here work for free to help and Frankly I saw this question earlier and passed on it--we are not mind readers and do not have a magic wand.

Some other advice:

If you have the original remote and it does not work there are ways to examine and repair it and even test it.

The problem with "Universal" remotes is that they are far from Universal--if they will program they usually are missing essential functions you are going to want and need.

Unless the set is some off the wall brand and the original remote is not available do not even consider a Universal remote. There are about 50 questions here each day where someone is trying to program a Universal for some set and cannot get it to program.

Sometimes we try to help people who have provided too little information for us to take the time to give an answer to.

It works both ways---poor information results in a brief answer that MAY not help.

I work here for free and for the last four weeks have finished #1 on this site, no money but people actually direct questions at me for good help. Hope this clears some things up just a little.

Ur5u-8780l not operating channels on Magnavox TV. Tried all codes and switched channel control to TV, still nothing.


If you are using a universal do not expect it to even if it programs to have all the functions you need or want or had with the original remote.

Universal remotes are far from UNIVERSAL.

The best argument for an original remote is even if it programs it will just not have all the features needed or wanted that the original had.

Hope this clears things up a little.

The system is limited in the number of openers it can store. Usually 3 though I don't know about your model..

You need to clear all stored openers, and then re-add what you want to use. If there are 4 or more it will not work.. The last one entered will be replaced by the new one. (What you're getting now)

Usually to clear memory, hold down the program button for ten seconds or so.
Wait a few seconds, start installing your openers.

Good luck
