Question about Universal Remote Control Remote Control
I have a 27'' symphonic tv and a new philips universal remote.....I cannot get the tv t recognize the codes or by searching . I have to manually shut off tv. The remote does work on my rca tv but not the symphonic tv...any chance the tv sensor is out ???? can that be fixed or do you recommend a different brand of remote?? I had a new rca universal and that wouldn't work either ( thought I bought a bad remote)
thanks for your help........gp
If the manufacturer of the universal remote cannot give you codes for the Symphonic you are out of luck. U will either have to get an original replacement or get a Harmony universal remote.

This is the user's manual for a Phillips remote control. There is a list of codes in it. They should be rather universal. There's also instructions as to how to program it. I believe that there is a way to program it without using the codes.
Programming with Code Search
1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.
3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.
4. Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.
Hope this helps :)
