Codes wont work on sanyo tv

Ive tried every code I found for my sanyo tv, and none of them worked. Is there a way to have the remote auto search for the code. I know the remote works on this tv because it was programmed before.

Re: codes wont work on sanyo tv

Visit and go to their Support tab for a code list and generic instructions on most of their remotes. They have come out with a new line recently that have 4-digit codes. Manually turn on the device to be controlled Press and hold the CODE SEARCH button until the red indicator stays on, then release the button Press and quickly release the device button (TV, VCR, etc). The red light blinks once. Point the remote at the device to be controlled and press the ON/OFF button (up to 300 times) until the device to be turns off. The red indicator blinks off with each button press. Once the device turns off, press the ENTER button to install the code. If after 300 tries the remote does not turn off the device, chances are there is no code in this remote for the device you are trying to use.

Re: codes wont work on sanyo tv

Yes there is search mode, but unfortunately you have to look in the manual. I am using 3 universal remote controls (one from sony) and all of them have different procedures for entering the code or searching for the code. The idea is, once the rm is in search mode, you have to wait until the TV turns off (or no) and you have to stop the search and save the setting. If you have no manual and the code is just 2 digits, you can try the 99 codes. This may take you maybe an hour or so (better than nothing). If it has 3-digits, it's a problem.

How do i program my onn remote for my flat screen Sanyo tv

If your ONN remote is programmable, you can search for a code to control your Sanyo TV. If a thorough search through all codes in the remote is unsuccessful, you may have to try another programmable remote.

Sanyo TV Code for Dish remote 21.0 IR/UHF PRO only operates TV Power and Volume Functions.

Hello Witt Thomas,

I can understand the concern and wanting the remote to work the TV Menus. It is possible with our remotes, however it depends on the TV itself. I've seen instances where there are 2 TV's in one house, and 1 will do it, while the other won't.

If you have tried all of the remote codes, and none work, the only other options we have available are to try a powr scan, or teach the remote. This link can provide the steps on how to teach that model of remote control!

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Need codes for a Sanyo TV

I have a 15-2147. The codes from solution 1 didn't work for my remote, so I used the codes listed on Radio Shack's page for the 15-2142. The first code worked. Those codes are: 0154, 1907
