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.

I moved my drop down TV to another floor and had FIOS add a line so I could hook it up. I can only get channel 3, no picture. I've tried the polaroid remote that came with the TV and also the remote that came with the box I needed to hook in to the FIOS system. Which remote should I be using? Is there a code or something I need to program in. The TV was working fine until I moved it. Thanks for your help! I definitely can't afford to buy a new TV, and FIOS is charging me $140 for installation of the line.

Polaroid FLM-373B not responding to any ir remote controls. Neither the OEM one or a Direct TV universal remote that has supposedly been 'programmed' for the TV.


Hi there
My first reaction is to disconnect the power supply for 5 minutes (often works wonders) With the power on again look for the function knobs on the TV itself. They are usually down in the right hand corner on the front. They have the same function as the knobs on the remote.
Give it a try.
Good luck

Polaroid TV DVD Combo Remote Codes Can't find a code to program your universal...


Polaroid TV DVD Combo Remote Codes

e53cce5.jpg

Can't find a code to program your universal remote to control your Polaroid HDTV / DVD combo? Can't find a listing for Polaroid DVD in your remote control code list?

Many manufacturers recycle remote control codes, so often the best solution is to use the code search function of your universal remote.

Here are some remote control codes that have worked to control Polaroid HDTVs:

  1. My 19" w/DVD uses the following Mitsubishi code: 10178
  2. Dish Network remotes: 627, 659, or 688
  3. DirecTV RC64 remote control revealed a code of 10835. This means that 10835, 0835, 835 or some variant many work with many programmable remote controls. On my DirecTV DVR system, this was indicated as a Moxell and/or Motorola TV code.
  4. Use the mitsubshi tv codes they worked for me.
  5. Try Element codes if they are listed in your remote code list.

I hope that helps.

Program remote to a direct tv reciever


You are most likely out of luck using these as universal remotes. You are better off purchasing a Logitech remote and programing it for the Polaroid and your Directv box.
