Question about Proscan 26LA30Q 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Pixel gone I purchased this TV just about a year ago, and other than not being able to find a code to program it any of my many remotes, it's been pretty good. A few days ago I noticed a pixel on the screen is not working or gone...any way it's white. Can this be fixed??

No this is whats called a dead pixel. Since it's white the transistor at that pixel area is shorted. Depending on the age of the unit the manufactor may replace the unit if not the whole panel will have to be replaced at a cost of more than the unit cost. Most manufactor says more then one pixel has to be bad before they will do anything.

What is the setup code for a Sylvania TV with Model Number RLC372AK01 and Serial Number 25014897? I need it to program a new remote control I recently purchased. None of the codes listed for Sylvania TVs...


The setup code may be different for each brand of remote, so a code for the TV will not help. You need to follow the instructions for the remote you bought to scan through all codes until you find one that works. Generally this is done by entering the programming mode and using the ch-up or ch-down buttons to scroll through the codes then use the power putton to see if it turns your set off. When you find the right one you press the button to 'store' it.
Your remote instruction booklet should step you through the process. If it does not have instructions for scanning all codes let us know the Brand and Model of the Remote you bought and we may be able to find the instructions.

How do you use your dish remote to power on a sylvannia tv


You will need to program the remote using the correct remote code for your model television. If you still have the manual for the television, the remote code should be located in there. If it's not there or you don't have the manual you can look up the codes online. There is no guarantee that the codes provided will work but most companies stick with a group of codes and use them in all of their products. Some good sources for remote codes would be:
http://www.hifi-remote.com/ofa/codes-tv.shtml
or
http://kbase.x10.com/wiki/Universal_Remote_Code_List

You can also just google your tv model using "remote codes" as a search field and something should come up.

Dish provides a decent tutorial on how to program the codes into their remotes here:
http://www.digitaldish.com/how-to-program-dish-remote.htm

Give the codes a try and hopefully you'll be able to control everything with one remote.

Also, if you find that you are having difficulty getting the codes to work, you can always purchase a "learning remote" which will allow you to program each remote key individually using the remotes to each individual device. I bought one of these:

and programmed it to control my Sony television, Xbox 360, PS3 and surround sound system. The instructions are pretty straightforward and it made my life a lot simpler.

First before I begin, please do not ask me to pay anything to get an answer for codes that is terrible. It is only numbers that we need. I purchased a emerson jumbo remote for my mother. She recently just...


Most likely the Emerson remote was programmed many years prior to the satellite receiver manufacturer loading their code into the box. (I have a similar remote) The fact is that remote may simply be too old to accept the newer code format that manufacturers now use. I cannot remember if that remote has a learn function, if it does you can teach it the satellite remote frequency though it may be button by button.

As an altertnative the links below may offer some choices.

Pioneer receiver sx-315


With persistence, I was able to program the Universal Remote Control provided with the cable box to control my new used Pioneer SX-315 receiver. I now can control the tv volume, cable box, auxiliary stereo receiver with speaker system with one remote. Thank goodness I did not have to resort to buying a Pioneer remote control.

I was able to program another previously unused universal remote which I purchased several years ago. However, since the other remote control did not list the Vizio TV. That brand is too new for the remote.
