I wish someone would bring a suit against any of these manufacturers using the term 'universal.' 
At best, they are 'multibrand' and, with the proliferation of 'brands,' there never will be one that can rightfully claim to be 'universal.'
There may never be a code for your brand available in every remote.

The instructions for searching for a code are pasted below stolen from another site:

steps for programing the rmc10 sentry really big universal remote
1, Manually turn on the device(TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
2. Press and hold the code search button until the red indicator stays on, then release the code search button.
3. Press and quickly release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, ect.). The red indicator blinks off once.
4. Press the Channel up button repeatedly(up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks off with each button press. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press channel down button to backtrack through the library until device changes channel. Pressing Channel up changes direction forward again.
5. Press and release Mute to install code.

Philips universal remote - tv codes for Sylvania


Several people in the on-line forums suggested inputting the brand search codes for Philips and Magnavox sets -- but it didn't work for me. Someone else suggested that Funai Corp (China) now makes some Sylvania sets, and their rep said that universal remotes don't work for their products. My Philips Universal Remote says to enter "0" for the brand search code, and that will instruct it search for all the codes installed in it. But there are approximately 300, so be very patient. And it didn't work for me anyway. . . but maybe it will for you.

If you do find an answer/solution, pl post it, OK? Thanks.

Turning off the closed captioning without the remote.


I had the same problem. I got a Philips Magnavox Universal Remote that has a closed captioning button [CC]. Here's a link to the same type:

TV does not poweron


Most universal remotes are not compatible for your set. I would suggest to order the original from Philips.

Universal remotes are only good for simple functions. Many of them cannot get in to the menus, and reliably work all the functions of the sets. This has to do with the complexity of all the many thousands of protocol codes that the universal manufacture has to impliment in to his low cost product!

Universal Remote not working


With nearly all brands of universal remote control, there is usually more than one code for Philips. Keep going through the codes until you find one that works correctly.

So if you know that the 1st code doesn't work, then don't save it, and move to the next.

You may find that several codes will actually put the TV into standby, but other functions will be different.
