I agree. Over 300 codes and not one worked.
Sylvania needs to provide the right code to the hird party companies.

Sharp aquos flat tv sound can not be control with remote, remote okay


I am not certain what you mean by remote is OK but the way remotes work with TV sets and cable boxes is that the remote sends channel info to the cable box and sound control to the TV set. Is the sound on full blast? Some cable boxes allow you to adjust the sound too. Without more information it is difficult to know where you are having a problem.

What is the code for xfinity cable xr2 remote control?


Your XFINITY remote can be paired with XFINITY X1 TV boxes, allowing you to control the TV box even when it is placed out of sight, such as in an entertainment center or in another room (up to 50 feet away). XFINITY remotes can be identified by the model number on the back panel or within the battery compartment of the remote.

Note: Once your remote is successfully paired with a TV box, it will not control any other TV box until paired with the other TV box. XFINITY remotes can only be paired with one TV box at a time.
To Pair an XFINITY Remote Note: These instructions apply to XR2, XR5 and XR11 model remotes only.Make sure the remote batteries are installed and your TV and TV box are powered on.Set the TV input to the input connected to the TV box.Press the Setup button on your remote until the LED at the top changes from red to green.Press the xfinity button on the remote. The LED will begin flashing green. (Note: When pairing an XR2 or XR5 remote to a DTA, you may need to press the xfinity button up to five times).Follow the instructions by entering the three-digit, on-screen pairing code.
Once the on-screen pairing code is correctly entered, your remote is paired with the TV box. Note: If you do not see on-screen pairing instructions after pressing the xfinity button in step four, press the xfinity button again. You may need to press the xfinity button multiple times if there is more than one TV box in range.

TV will not let us manually put in channels


Do you mean using the TV or cable box remote? If you are using a cable box remote, then the TV remote control may not work due to having the TV on one specific channel so the cable box remote will work. Or, if just using a TV remote with no cable box remote, then the keys on the remote could be overused and pressing them might not be allowing the key(s) to come in contact with what the key(s) are suppose to come in contact with on the circuit board below the key(s).

I have comcast remote and granddaughter turned tv on side panel. Now screen is fuzzy and I can't find remote that came with tv. I get picture back?


Hello Mary and thank you for choosing FixYa today for your online technical support needs.

When you say the TV is FUZZY, do you mean that there is no picture there at all?

It is possible that your grandaughter may have changed the VIDEO INPUT MODE SELECTOR on the TV by accident when she tried to turn it on with the controls on the TV itself.

Most TVs have a button right on the front of the set itself labelled INPUT which allows you to switch between the various input modes. That button should be located right beside the POWER, CHANNEL, and VOLUME buttons on the TV's front panel.

You may simply need to press the INPUT button and select the proper INPUT SOURCE for your Comcast cable box.

The proper INPUT MODE for your particular setup will depend on how your Comcast cable box is connected to your TV. If your cable box is plugged into your TV with an HDMI cable, then make sure your TV INPUT MODE is set to HDMI.

I hope this helps out, and please feel free to comment back to this page with any additional questions or concerns and I will respond back.

If you do need additional help, please be sure to include the exact model number of your TV and of your Comcast cable box as well as how the two are connected.

Good luck and take care.

Joe.

Tv is stuck on Video 1 and the remote is missing.Won't respond to the cable remote except on and off. HELP


Try pressing tv first on your cable remote then the video/source/input button on the cable remote. If there is no button on the television itself to switch video inputs a temporary fix for now is to connect the cable box to the video 1 female parts on your television. Buy the cables to do that if you don't have a spare set lying around. You can purchase a remote for your television with the model number from http://www.replacementremotes.com or even a Sanyo remote from a thrift store should be able to allow you to switch inputs.

I am having problems getting cable on my TV. The cable man told me on the phone to change it to either #4 on the back of my cable , and then the cable will work. The problem I have is when I look into the...


There are several possibilities here Brenda. If you have a cable box, then the signal is coming out either as component (5 individual connections of varying color) or High Definition (1 cable that supplies both audio and video). If you don't have a cable box, then the cable runs directly into the back of your TV. This is calle da coax cable. Either way, each "input" on the back of your tv should be labeled as a number. Take note of this number and Once your TV is turned on, locate the "Input" or "source" button on your remote. This will allow you to switch which device you would like to view on your tv. If you have a DVD player or gaming unit hooked to the tv, this is how you would choose to display it. Once you've chosen the correct input number, you should eb able to view cable. Hope that this helped

This Remote is capable of transmitting two control codes; one set
to respond to A code control signals and another set to respond to
B code control signals. This Remote control is preset to send A
code signals because your VCR is initially set to respond to A code
signals. You can easily modify your VCR and the Remote to
respond to B code signals. When using two JVC VCRs, set two
VCRs and their Remotes to different codes, so that you can
operate these VCRs separately.
