After battery replacement, you should set it up with the set-up codes to your device, because, as soon as you took out the batteries from its battery compartment, the remote control will reset to it factory settings. You should re-configure it with your device again.
If you wish to get more; check the site linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. See it in "Mosaic" view. It will make surf easier.

SOURCE: Reprogram RCA Remote to Sony Television

1 Turn on the component you want to program.
2 Press and hold both the TV/DVD/ect button and the power button untill the light comes on and stays on
3 Press the play button every 5 seconds until the device turns off. A bank of ten codes is being sent each time.
4 Press the rewind/reverse button to see if it turns off/on again. Wait 2 seconds and press again until it turns back on.You may have to do this up to 10 times until it searches through the bank of ten codes sent.
5 Press and hold the stop button until the light goes off. This saves the code.

The remote only controls the volume, not the channels, etc.

Laura, If it is a universal remote you will have to reprogram to your TV with the correct code. If it is your original remote change the batteries, if original does not work after new batteries, replace it.
I will post links to how and set up universal remote and codes.

Remote quit working, put new batteries in it. I believe it needs to be reprogramed. need code. Thanks

The manufacturers remote needs no code. It will default to the Akai.

if you are using a universal remote or cable or satelite remote you will need to contact that company for the code.
Once you find the code, the best practice is to write it on a piece of masking tape and stick to the inside of the battery compartment door of the remote...that way, everytime you change batteries- presto! theres your code!

My remote quit working for my tv. I can change the channels but cannot control the volume or power on the tv

It likely needs to be re-programmed, or the batteries need to be replaced. If the batteries have been replaced and it's still not working, then try reprogramming it:

This depends on whether or not you have a universal remote control, or just a standard one that came with your television. For this, you will need to goto RCA's website:
Type in your Model # into the search bar, located on the back of the unit. This will take you to a support page where you should be able to find some information on reprogramming the remote specific to your unit. If you can't find it, I would suggest calling RCA's technical support.

Is your remote one of the "universal" ones that allows you control multiple boxes?

If so, be sure you are selecting the correct input (TV, DVD, AUX, SAT...etc).

It's also possible that you will have to reprogram your TV to accept the remote's input. This can happen even if the TV and the Remote were sold together. Check your TV/remote manual for the syncing instructions and associated codes.
