Re: remotes don't work

The problem is likely with the remote receiver itself, p/n 0778000003 - It's about a $15.00 part if you can replace it yourself.

If you tried code search without results, you may have to try another universal remote. All universal remotes do not contain all possible codes.

The Emerson TV won't respond to the remote

If the Duraband doesn't work the Philips remote below worked on mine. If it doesn't then it probably is the sensor. I just purchased one of these televisions and it didn't come with a remote. However, a Philips Universal Remote (SRU2103/27)
with a code 0520 works fine. I haven't explored all the codes but I can easily change from tv stations to Video 1 and Video 2 merely by pressing the "Input" button on the remote.

Looking for a remote for an old Emerson TV


Call 1 800 Remotes or go to In the middle of the page type in the model number which in your case would be VT1920. I believe the original remote is not available anymore but you can get a substitute remote for that TV. Also have you considered getting a universal remote? Those work on any TV with any component. Try the first two suggestions and hopefully you will find what you are looking for...

Hope this helps,

Durabrand Tv need to program universal remote

Your sets were made by a Japanese company named Funai.  No guarantee, but you might try any Sylvania, Emerson, Durabrand, Symphonic, or Funai codes listed.
If none of those work, often has original remotes at inflated prices.

Comcst remote control code not working

look on the label on the back of your Emerson TV. Read the small print and see if there is a possible different manufacturer that actually made the Emerson TV. Just because it says emerson doesn't mean emerson made it. Also if no luck there try the UL listing code and search that code to the UL listing website. That may help also.

Remote not working

Sometimes dust is accumulated in tv remote receiver sensor. This will give you the malfunction. Because your statement says TV is about 8 yrs old. Better solution is make one general service. If you have remote checker check the TV original remote working or not. We say universal remote, sometimes even technical person does not know how to use. Because in each and every brand and model there is a secret code to initiate the version. So better make one general service and check in your original remote it is working.
