I just bought a Toshiba 32AV502U HDTV, and the manual does not provide codes for my Toshiba SD-V392DUA DVD/VCR combo. Toshiba has been unhelpful. Does anyone know what codes might work with the TV remote or, better, with the Synergy V remote for my Scientific Atlanta 8300HDC cable box/DVR (Time Warner Cable)?

Use the code search provision of your universal remote to seek a suitable code. If a search through all codes stored in the remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not store all possible codes.
I would suggest to check the internal fuse as long as you feel confident and take the necessary safety measurements when working with AC voltages.
If your device is less then a year old, still under manufacturers warranty and you should call them if that applies to your device.

Most DVD players have region codes. If you play a DVD from your region 5 times, it will permantly set the code.
Blame the movie and record companies.
Even most computer DVD drives have region codes.
It's unlikely the sales person was educated enough in this topic to even know what a region code is.
Here's something else to consider. If the DVD you want to view is from
England, they use PAL not NTSC, so it's unlikely you could view it on
your TV anyway.
Get your son to copy the file from the DVD onto a USB FlashRAM drive,
then mail it to you. They don't have region codes. Now you can view it
on your computer, and make your own North American region DVD. Also,
you could always have him e-mail the video to you, then burn it
