Before entering service mode, be sure that the entire button on the remote control will work properly, if anyone found inoperative, do not use it to enter the service mode. If it is a universal remote control; check it well. With most universal remote controls, sometimes, all the button functions might not work as it should be. If so, try to set it with another set-up code said for your device, and then make sure about its working. I strongly recommend you to use the original remote control to enter service mode.
This is because;
Suppose you have to enter the service mode to adjust certain parameter. You haven't made sure that all the function of the remote control will work properly with your set or not. After entering the service mode, as you know, limited buttons on the remote control will be active. For example, in service mode, channel Up, Channel Dn, Volume Up and Volume down, and the OK button, Power button and Numerical buttons are used to adjust the data parameter. After adjusting all these parameters; you have to come out from the service mode to Normal mode. Otherwise, you can't operate the set. Suppose, the service mode procedure tells you that, you should press the Power button on the remote control to Power Off the set, to come out from service mode to normal mode. Power down the set by its main power button won't make it to normal mode. If the power button on the remote conrol does not work, how can we come out from service mode to normal mode? In fact, you can't come out of service mode.
The most important thing to note is this. Before you attempt to enter the service mode option, read and understand all the instructions. Be sure that there is enough detail to Exit from the service mode. If it is not there, never enter the service mode. For some sets, there will be no Exit option. To such sets, Power it OFF by the main power switch will do the same. But you should make it sure by reading the instructions.
For your information, I've included some set-up codes too here, to check with your universal remote control, if the present set-up do not work with all the functions it supposed to be. Set-up a universal remote control is a trial and error procedure. You might have to check with many set-up codes, before you get a proper code to your remote control to work properly with your set. The included codes are the common codes works for your brand. If you wish to get more set-up codes and set-up procedure, visit the sites linked here.
You can get more details by this site too.
After enter the site, just type in the brand name to your set; in the search box, at the top right of the display window; to get gathered the related pages that contains details. Please do not press the 'Enter' button, after type in the brand name into the search box. The search will start automatically, as you type in the brand name into the search box, and will list related pages.

How to operate remote if the ok doesnt work

Try an other code said to your TV brand to sync with the remote control. This is a common problem to all universal remote controls. You should try other set-up codes said for your TV brand; and select one which give you maximum functionality. Never expect all the buttons on any universal remote control will work as it supposed to be. Sometimes, volume Up will act as Channel down; Channel down will work as volume don; etc:
It will be best to buy its original remote control. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability.
Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site Check this site too. Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.
Type in the brand name of your device, in the search box [at the top right] of the display window, and press enter to get all related posts. It will make surf easy.

Have Comcast and need my remote to control the tv volume

If you have set it up with proper setup code, it should work almost all functions as it to be. Never expect a universal remote control work as an original one to all function of a TV. The only thing you can do is to try an other code to your TV. Refer the code list, and try to set the TV for an other code. The other, then other. Each time check the functions after setup. Select the code which have maximum functionality with TV. That's all. You haven't provided the Brand name and model number to your TV here. If so I might inform you the codes. Anyway check this to get some details, if you want.

Remote came w/coverter, no codes for Panasonic TV/DVD/VCR combo

Since you say the remote turns the box on and off properly, the control is probably working correctly. If you aren't seeing anything on the screen, you may not have the TV on the right channel (if you've connected it with an RF cable to the TV's antenna input jack). If you've connected the box using its video and audio outputs, you may not have selected the TV's video input.

As far as setting up the remote to work the converter box, that isn't necessary. If the remote is truly not working the box properly, and you have tried new batteries in the remote, you may have a bad remote or converter box and should take it back to the seller.

If the problem is setting up the boxes remote to work your TV, you may be out of luck. If you need to enter a brand code and your TV isn't listed, there is usually a code search function. The problem with universal remotes in general is that often they only give you control of a TV's basic functions but not advanced menu controls. The converter box remote may not be able to do more than just turn your TV on and off and control its volume. You may need to keep the original TV remote handy if you want to do things like adjust color levels, control closed captioning, or other functions like that.

Volume controls dont work when using remote

I would start by trying other codes on the universal remote. Sometimes codes will only work part of the remote such as the numbers or channels but not volume. Your motorola cable remote sounds like it may only need a good cleaning. sometimes when you take remotes apart it will look like somthing got spilt in it. I would start there first.
