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.

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.

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.

I have a sanyo DS25204 tv and found a sanyo GXDB remote. Can I use it for my TV and if so what codes do I use.

Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.
Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts.

Need a code for my tv its a tecnicolour by rca none of the rca codes would work and the auto code search didnt work either :

I have a different model of RCA but had the same problem, try this: Code for Comcast Remote Control is 13183
Code for Voice Control Remote Control is 12292, however when you go thru the automated process of programming your TV you need to select TCL as your TV brand. Do not select RCA for Voice Control Remotes.

I Need to Find coad to program Remolt For Sanyo TV/Dp37647

The universal code for most is 049 for a Sanyo TV. With your universal remote you press the code search key until it illuminates and then you press and release the TV key. Next enter the three digit code (3 digit remote code page) and the indicator light turns off.
If you enter in the wrong code the light will flash rapidly. Aim the remote at your tv and press the on/off key. If your tv turns off then you have found the right code!
Try these codes for your Sanyo TV also: 054, 069, 023, 025. If those do not work then also try: 004, 013, 049, 108, 110, 180, 209
