Question about RCA Universal Remote 3 Device Remote Control

1 Answer

Input button on my new universal remote doesnt work

The dvd and tv are correctly hooked up, and the old remote is able to change the input (on my tv) to video, but my new rca remote only flashes the channel and time ("display") when i push "input," it does not switch to any video mode. Does this indicate there is something wrong with the remote?

You'll have to try a new code for your TV.

http://66.77.167.109/rcaaccessories/RcaaccessoriesController.do?ACTION_TYPE_ID=ACTION_TYPE_CATEGORY&ACTION_CATEGORY_ID=STR_CATEGORY_UNIVERSAL_REMOTES

Click the remote code finder link on the left towards the bottom of the page.

Select your remote and device (TV in this case) from the dropdowns.

Scroll down the results page to your brand of TV and try all the codes until you find the one that works with all the functions you want.

Best of luck!

Wheni push input, i get the options but no arrow i push will move down to option to play vhs


not enough info , if your trying to change the tv input , make sure you select tv on the universal remote first , you either need to keep pushing input til it moves down to your desired input , or use the arrow key to move it down to the input. some require you to hit enter or ok to select , others just wait a second , it should change. if your getting the options menu when your hitting input , then the remote is not compatible with your TV / VHS / DVD...
If you get the input to change and your successful , make sure you hit VHS in order to call a command , if its still in tv mode , your only going backwards , make sure whatever your trying to control , the remote is selected to that device ... Good Luck ..

When i press the input button on my universal remote nothing happens


There are several codes for the same brand of TV. Make certain you have the perfect code to control all functions for your model, and be sure to change the remote to "TV" before pressing input button.

Sounds like you need to change the input channel of your TV with your TV remote. Look for an Input or Video Source button. Once you've found it, insert a DVD then cycle through the inputs with that button until you see something on the screen. As always this could be undermined by incorrect connections to and from and the DVD player. Double check these as always!

RCR460 with Emerson Tv doesnt change channel to input sources


found the answer but it doesnt help.......i got the number to who makes RCA remote controls and called them and talked to tech support to see what i could do for this problem. According to them, some universal remotes are compatible with most tvs but sometimes the remote can only give you the basic functions (chan up/down, volume up/down, #'s, mute an so on.) i dont really understand why it wouldnt work for the input channel but i do know i have a lower end and low priced tv. so....just like everything else the more you pay...the better it is. I checked the remote on my other tv in the living room and everything works just fine, even the input button. Hope this helps...
