Re: Tv will not turn on with remote or when I press the...

The P52960 uses the PTK195 series chassis. The most common cause of that set not starting up is a shorted flyback transformer. It is quite easy to test and replace the flyback transformer in that chassis, but that should be done by a qualified tech experienced in RCA projection sets.

Mitsubishi wd-73738 turns itself back on


It sound like the remote is powering off the cable box but not the TV. The remote control may need to be reprogrammed to the TV. When you press power it may only power off the Cable box. At that point, try pressing the TV button on your remote and then Power. If it does not power off the tV after pressing the tV button, the remote may need to be reprogrammed to the tv. Cable companies usually have the codes needed to program their remotes to the TVs.

If you want to try another code, start over from step 1.
Below is the website for the online manual which will give further instructions.

In looking at the manual no codes are given for the Coby brand TV. If the above process does not work, you'll have to call DishNetwork for further assistance. It may be that the remote will not work for your TV.

I want to program my remote control to work with my direct t.v.

Look in the user manual for your remote.
You should find a table with brands and types of devices.
Your direct tv should be listed as such.
There will be a number code for the direct tv that you will need to program the remote with.
The manual should also tell you what buttons to press in order to program.
Otherwise, have only the direct tv receiver ON.
point your remote at it and press the tv button and then the power button on the remote and hold it down while pressing the cursor up and down buttons. (not channel up and down. The up and down are the ones to select other things on the remote with.
When you have the right code the tv will shut off.
After it has shut off stop pushing buttons and then press the power button on the remote.
Your direct tv should now be programmed to turn on and off with the remote.
Note: be sure when you turn various devices on or off, have it selected for that devices you are trying to turn on or off.

In order to program my "dish network" remote control , I need the remote control code for "Haier" model HL 15 B-A.

The reprograming of my dish network remote to my Haier tv was accomplished by the following steps: 1. Press the clear tv button and hold down until all 4 buttons are lit. Release the button. 2. Press and release the large red power button. 3. Press the UP arrow button about once a second until the tv turns off. 4. As soon as the tv turns off, press the pound (#) button at the bottom of the remote.

The unit will now be reprogramed.

Comcast Remote Control Code

comcast sucks and its tech support are a bunch of idiots. the book that comes with the remote is wrong (and for some reason no one in tech support knows this). the remote requires 5 digit codes and all the codes in the book are 4. typing the number 1 in front of any of the codes in the book, for any device and manufacturer, should fix this problem.
