Question about RCA VR552 VHS VCR

1 Answer

No remote - need code, and can only get one channel

I have lost the remote (and manual) for a VCR that I got a while ago, and when I hook it up to my TV and the Antennae (I don't have cable) I can only get one channel (the other channels are UHF or VHF, can't remember which but have high numbers - 24, 42, 54 etc) - when I go to these channels I only get a blue screen. I would like to program another remote I have to go with this VCR - my Hitachi TV remote has VCR type buttons, or I have a universal remote. Can you tell me why I only get one channel? can you tell me what the code is for this unit - to enter into another remote? any way to get a manual for this VCR? Thanks very much, July

I have apex dt-250a digital converter box and I lost the remote. Purchased RCA universal remote and I have not a clue what codes I need or how to enter them. Can you help?


I programmed a Radio Shack 5-in-one remote to my Apex DT-250. Select cabel/satelite, hold p until the light blinks twice, then enter the code 0749. It works! If your universal remote uses a three digit code, use 749. If it uses a five digit code, use 00749. I HAVE A PROBLEM THOUGH... I don't know how to scan for channels! It says "please do auto channel search", but how do I do that? Please, if anyone has this answer, let me know. I finally programmed the universal remote, but it's basically useless without being able to do an auto channel search.

Most universal remotes will drop the code memory if the batteries have been out for more than 1 minute - you will need your instruction sheet to reprogram, this will have the codes too.
If you have lost the sheet then google the remote model number

Lost remote programing directions


Great News!! We can program most Philips Universal Remotes with Automatic Code Searh. Here's how it works on most of our remotes.

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.

The above assumes that you want to store the VCR you want under the VCR but, Cable codes under the CBL, etc

Note: if the device does not have a chat channel at a button, you should Play (VCR only) or Power instead.

Here is a Code List on PDF that shoud be universal for most remotes. It worked for me.

I lost my remote codes


http://www.remotecodelist.com/remotes/magnavox/Philips-Magnavox_PM525S.pdf
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 :)
