Comcast Remote Can't Program My Sceptre HDTV

Supposedly the Sceptre HDTV's use the Sony remote code (0000 or 0111), for the Comcast 3 n 1 remote. Not so. Does anyone have a clue what it may be? I have seen other people have this problem. Some have found a code that will turn on and off the Sceptre HDTV, but will not control the TV volume from the remote.

    I feel like such a fool. I didn't realize there were so many different kinds of comcast remotes. It turns out that I have a OnDemand DVR remote and that uses a 5 digit number, instead of the 4 digit number.

    I started with the basic Sony 5 digit code (10000) and ta da! It worked! And, the sound button also works.

    I hope this will help others that are remote control challanged, like myself.

Thanks...this worked great for me. I used code 11100 on my Sceptre tv and it appears to be working perfectly!

I tried the same thing and it worked. Odd thing is that the rocker key marked "volume" doesn't do anything -- but in the TV mode, the left-right buttons around the OK button control the TV volume. I guess the "whatever" theory works, too. ;-)

    The 11100 code works for the X42 Naga and the left/right buttons on the comcast red ok remote do control the volume. Thanks so much!

Need a code for my Sony RM-Y16 Remote to split screen with my Comcast DVR

It is possible that this remote will not program to your Comcast dvr. Your DVR is probably newer than the remote and has new codes that the remote doesn't support. The only thing you can do now, is either purchase a new universal remote that supports both units. or use your Comcast remote to program it to your TV. the Comcast remotes are programmable.

I have a Sceptre 46 in. LCD TV. It worked fine with Comcast until 4:00 AM EST last Wednesday, when it turned itself on. I came into the living room and saw the display on the COMCAST DVR flashing on and...

Try reprogramming the remote the code for scepter is
10889 if you have a RED ok select button on your remote or if you have a DARK SILVER remote

Brand: Sceptre

Most likely code: 10889

  1. Turn on a device (e.g., VCR or DVD Player) and, if applicable, insert media, (e.g., video cassette or disc).
    NOTE: Please read steps 2 to 6 completely before proceeding. Highlight or write down the codes and device you wish to program before moving on to step 2
  2. On the remote control, press a device key once (i.e., or TV).
    NOTE: Use the AUX key to program control of an Audio Amplifier or Receiver, a DVD Player, a Home-Theater-In-A-Box Device, a PVR (or DVR), or a VCR.
  3. Press and hold Setup until the selected mode key blinks twice, then release Setup.
  4. Locate the code for your device in Manufacturer's Codes listed below. Brands are listed in alphabetical order with the most popular codes listed first.
  5. Enter the first five-digit code for your device. If you perform this procedure correctly, the selected mode key will blink twice.
    NOTE: If you enter an invalid code, the selected mode key will display one long blink and exit the programming mode. Repeat steps 2 to 5 with a valid code.
  6. Aim the remote control at your device and press Power once. The device should turn off. If it does not respond, repeat steps 2 to 6, trying each code listed for your brand until you find one that works. If it still does not work, try Searching For Your Code.
    NOTE: If the device does not have a Power key, press the (Play) key

Comcast Remote Control - Won't accept remote codes

To reset the remote control, just take out the battery from the remote control, and reinsert it after an hour or so. The remote control will reset itself.
After that try to set it up with the setup code said for your device. You might have to try many codes before getting a code that'll have the most functionality with your device.
Setup procedure and set up code list of many popular brand remote controls are given by these sites.

Can't find remote codes for comast remote

Comcast has not added remote codes for that brand to their cable remote. This is likely because they haven't received the IR frequencies from your TVs manufacturer. This is a common problem with TV companies that are small and don't yet have a lot of models or total sales.

I'm afraid for now, you'll have to use two remotes. Unless you want to purchase a learning remote that can replace both the TV and the cable remote. A learning remote works by picking up the necessary frequencies directly from the remote you want to replace.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today!

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.
