Question about RCA Televison & Video
RCA remote cratered, purchased multiple universal remotes. Each instruction starts with tuning the tv to channel one....without a remote that is not possible. Using the up/Down button alone will not get me to channel 1. Can you tell me how I might be able to use a universal remote when I don't have the original remote to reprogram with?
Something missing here. There is no channel 1 on a TV set. None of the universal remote instructions I have or have seen specify that as a first step. From your post, I believe you want to use some kind of universal remote to control an RCA flat panel TV, Can you tell me the brand of universal remote you are trying to use? The answer to the last line of your post is you don't need the original remote to "reprogram". That's what universal remotes do

Turn your TV off and unplug it for several minutes. Remove the batteries from any remote controls that you use for the TV, press all of their buttons, and install fresh batteries. Reset the TV to factory defaults. The universal remote control should not have caused any damage to the TV. If the problem persists, we recommend that you seek service by calling 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada.

I think the point he is making is that he only has a universal remote - not the original, so the problem isn't not being able to find the channels, but not being able to select the retune option in the first place. I have same problem - the remotes that shipped with this TV were rubbish (I have gone through 2!) and some buttons stop working. The retune / setup memu is seperate to the other basic set-up stuff and many universal remotes don't have theis 'other' button. Best solution, get a replacement remote that is MADE to work with this TV then you can auto-tune to your hearts content.

To confirm if the remote control is working, point the infrared emitter directly to your cellphone camera and then press any key, you will see the flash of an infrared every time the button is press. Watch this sample Video.
Once you've confirmed that the remote control is not the issue, this is an indication of faulty infrared receiver(sensor) inside the tv. Check the front panel of the tv where the sensor is located, clean the surface as much as possible which may block the signal. If the symptoms still persist, I would advice you to look for a qualified tv technician to troubleshoot its circuitry.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using fixya.
