Since your remote is responding, you may want to check if it is producing an IR signal. To do this, take a picture of the remote when someone else presses a button. (Have the other person point the remote at the camera lens. With a digital camera (cell phone or other camera), if the remote is producing an IR signal, the resulting picture will show a flare of light.) Taking pictures of several different button presses may indicate which functions are compromised. You can try resetting the codes for the different devices the remote controls.

Unfortunately, you may need to replace your remote with a new one. I've never had much luck cleaning the contacts after they were damaged.

In the future, if you spill water on the remote, first remove the batteries. Then dry the bulk of the water off of the unit. To finish drying the water from the contacts inside, fill a bowl or other container large enough to hold the remote with some uncooked rice. Place your remote (with the battery compartment open) into the rice and leave it there; then cover the bowl. You can rotate the remote in the rice at intervals but leave it in the rice for several days. (The drying process can take a week.) Do not replace the batteries until the remote is completely dry.

Alternatively, get one of the cell phone drying bags and use that to dry the remote. It will still take several days to get all of the moisture out of the unit.

I hope this helps.

Program the universal remote following the instructions manual for that model TV. Usually holding the power and TV button until the TV power light comes on. Or, try the combination codes for that model TV.

I don't have the original control remote for Apex Ad-1201 DVD player. I would like to use my Universal Remotes: Radio-shack USA "flag" 4-IN-ONE Remote and / or RCA 312W three component remote. I got the codes from the manuals but my DVD player doesn't work or turn off (only ejecting; open and close) with pause button. Could I get a possible code (s) for these Universal Remotes?

Step1, press the code search button until the led light stays on, then release button, Step2 press what equuipment you want to control, (tv, vcr, dvd, audio) then release. Step3, If you know what codes were used, press the code numbers in and the led will blink 2 or 3 times to comfirm it accepted the code. if you do not know the codes, do Step 1 and Step2, then Press the power button continuosly until the equipment you want to control comes on.
Hopefully this will work for you. This is the way my RCA Universal Remote works.

Hello I have a philips universal remote, don't know what model it is I thought all Universal remotes was one Model. Last night I tried using it for my TV to swich from TV to DVD and it just stopped...


Great News!! We can program most Philips Universal Remotes with Automatic Code Searh. Here's how it works on most of our remotes.

Programming with Code Search

1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.

2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.

3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.

4. Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.

The above assumes that you want to store the VCR you want under the VCR but, Cable codes under the CBL, etc

Note: if the device does not have a chat channel at a button, you should Play (VCR only) or Power instead.

Here is a Code List on PDF that shoud be universal for most remotes. It worked for me.

Hope this helps you out, good luck.

Dvd code


Try preforming an automatic code search:

1) Make sure the device is on.
2) Hold down the DVD button and the power button simultaneously until the red light stays on solid.
3) Then press the power button - it will flash one time - keep pressing slowly, letting it flash until the device turns off.
4) As soon as the device turns off, press the stop button

If your the remote does not power the device off after cycling through all the codes - You will know this when the power button blinks and deluminates - then your "universal" remote will not work with the DVD player.

The best of luck to you!

Philips universal remote codes


For the majority of phillips/magnavox universal remotes: Hold code search button down till red light satys on. Press the tv button and the red light should blink and stay lit. With the tv on, push the power button repeatedly until the tv turns off.(dont push the power button again after the tv turns off or it will go to the next code). Push the mute button to save the setting.
