Question about Pioneer SD-P50A5-K 50" Rear Projection Television

Universal remote(s) won't work

OK I broke the parent remote am trying to get a RCA D770 universal remote to either change the menu or change the input on a SD-P50A5-K pioneer TV. I've tried all the codes I've tried all the codes I can find. At best i can change channels, volume, use PnP to limited degree, and open and move the cursor on the menu. Thats it. I cant select anything on the menu because the enter button turns on the PnP when menu isn't open and does nothing when the menu is open. What I'm trying to accomplish is to change the TV to the secondary antennae and I'm really ticked off right now cause this is the second "universal" remote that has pulled this (insert expletive of choice) on me. Anyone know how or even if I can fix this?

Rca hdtv channel changed by mistake

RCA channel setup and selection is not easy to understand. You may try to add channel 3 on the add/remove channel section. If that doesn't work try pressing the input button. Good Luck.

Lost remote for sanyo ht30746 tv

You can buy an exact remote from a company called Remote control warehouse for 39.95----Google the model number and you will find them.

It is very common that "universal" remotes will do many functions but not ALL that the original remote did--considering this it may be a good idea to get an original remote---part number on this site is: 6450750977for the remote for this model Sanyo.

I hope this helps you and if you have any questions let me know.

I need a remote code for a rca remote for the olevia remote control can you help

Unfortunately Olevia is one of those t.v. brands that is not compatible with many universal remote controls. They make a Universal Learning Remote specifically available from Olevia on their web site that may solve your problem if your universal remote control turns out not to be compatible with your Olevia television.

As for what codes you can try, there are many, and the codes depend on your universal remote control brand. Many times, an RCA code will work for Olevia televisions, so you should try the RCA codes that come with your universal remote first, before trying any of these other codes.

If you have a Dish Network Universal Remote you can use code 506 or 127.

Direct TV remote codes vary by model number on the remote control, but the following codes work with most Direct TV remotes: 506, 127, 11144, 11240, 11331, 11610

Cable Vision use code 506

Charter and Movie Box remotes you can use 1144 or 1178

Comcast codes are 11144, 11240, 11331, 21075, 10159, 10154, and 10088

Cox code is 1610

Brighthouse remote codes are 1610, 1144, 1240, and 1331

Time Warner remote codes are 1610, 1144, 1240, 1331, 432, and 1610

If none of these brands are what you are looking for as far as your Universal Remote Control is concerned, many universal remote controls will work with Olevia televisions if you use the codes found under the RCA, LG, Phillips, and Yamaha in the code listing included with your remote control.

Hi, I have a problem with my rca television model number RCAS01BA. My dauther has somehow put the child lock on without using the remote control as we had lost that a couple of months ago. (God bless...

You don't need the remote to unlock the TV. Any RCA universal remote will change channels etc if you want a remote.
Now from the manual: simultaneously hold down the menu/OK button and the Volume down button for 3 seconds. This resets the pasword and unlocks the TV. You can then enter the menus as usualI believe to control/clear parental settings etc.

Locked ext inputs

I'll give you the master reset, with set on, and from the remote hit Menu-1-2-7-0 this will bring up the Intilize screen and the word Initlize should be highlighted, if it is hit enter on the remote, this is the factory default settings so now if the set ask for a parental code it will be 0000
