I just bought a Polaroid 22 inch LCD DVD Combi,, I struggled for hours trying to find a code online,, and eventually researched that my Polaroid TV is made by Phillips,, I entered a Phillips 4 digit code (0081) and it worked.. I also found this link very helpful,, I used the 4 digit code routine. http://www.rtv.co.uk/remote_codes_for_sky_dig_remote.htm
First we need to know if the remote is working. Heres the "secret" way to check a remote. Use a cell phone w/camera.
Set the cell phone to camera
while watching the camera screen and a known good
remote, aim the remote at the lens and press a button (volume works
well) on the remote (not a device button ie; sat,tv,vcr,etc). You should see lights turn on/flash. Now you know your camera can detect IR light.
Do the same again with the remote in question. If
there is no IR light output, the remote is the problem. replace the
batteries, ensure good battery contact, retest the remote.
If the remote is working then the problem is in the unit.
Let me know what you find.
Neat trick, huh? Please take the time to rate this.
Slide top button on remote to tv. Press and hold mute and select button until the green light on the remote blinks twice. Then press 991. Then press 1. Then press the tv power button once. If the tv doesn't respond hit the channel up button on the remote. If that works press select to store the code and slide the switch back to the left. If it doesn't work keep hitting channel up until it does. It can take up to 30 minutes but it works.
