This would depend on what brand/model # you bought. However, nearly every television remote whether universal or not will always have a couple of buttons that are used for going up or down (one for volume and one for channel) many time the channel up & down are on the same button. It may be one long rectangular button that has a plus and a minus sign on the appropriate end of the button (up or + at the top down or - near the bottom) . If this is the case then most likely you have only 2 buttons as I said and the other will be for the volume. In some cases these buttons could be placed horizontally instead of vertically on the remote and in that case, usually pressing the right side is up and the left side is down. If by chance there are 4 separate buttons (vol up, vol dwn, ch up, ch down) then I can say with a large degree of certainty that these buttons will be placed either in a group all together in the center of the remote and may look like the 4 quarters of a pie placed in the center near the top or front end of the remote. If this is the case usually the button with the arrows pointing up or down are for the channel and the buttons with the arrows pointing left or right are for the volume. You'll be able to figure out which is which by simply pressing one of them to test the volume. You may want to familiarize yourself with these buttons, particularly the volume buttons before you settle into a chair to watch your favorite television show. You will want to keep the remote handy because it quite possible that you'll need the volume elevated when the show is broadcasting but when there is a commercial break, often you'll be unpleasantly surprised by how much the volume increases when the commercials are airing! This is at the least annoying, and there have been some elderly people or those who suffer from a heart condition who although they appear the picture of health have been known to become so startled by the sudden extreme increase in volume that it causes an unexpected 'bout of arrhythmia or even a mild heart attack. Knowing the layout of the buttons and keeping it close by is the best way to be guaranteed to have a relaxing and entertaining evening, The volume up button can also come in handy if you have a guest who has a habit of talking during more than commercials. When you want to hear the show but you don't want to be rude and interrupt, all you have to do is turn up the volume slowly and without looking at the remote if you've memorized where the volume button is and , voila', your guest gets the message, stops talking and may even apologize for "talking instead of paying attention". All you have to do is be your usual gracious hostess and say, "Oh gosh I nearly forgot the show was back on too, thanks for bringing me back to it, this is my favorite show and I don't want to miss it!" Universal remote......Universal secret weapon! Works every time!

I have a TruFlat RCA model # 27F520T have lost original remote and FPA lock is on how do I unlock without original remote? Dish universal remote not working to unlock tv, it will pull up menu but cannot...

Try this -
  1. Press menu for main menu.
  2. Press CH + or CH - to highlight preferences.
  3. Press "OK" to enter preferences submenu.
  4. Press CH + or CH - to high light "FPA"
  5. Press VOL + or VOL - to turn the FPA on or off.
  6. Press MENU repeatedly to exit.
  7. Back to normal
  • FPA stands for Front Panel Lock. It makes it so kids don't push all the buttons on the front of your TV. The power button on the TV will still work and the remote will still function as normal.

Regards, Tony

Need code to reprogram phillips universial sru2103s/27 remote to an Orion TV

Apparently, the S series autoprograms.
Hold the setup button until the remote's light stays on. Then, quickly press and release the TV button and it should blink off once. After that, just press the up channel button (CH +) until it changes channels.

"ch set" appearing on screen

Need to get into the menu pages to setup the tuner. Just buy a under $10 universal remote but make sure it has a menu button.
Or - many other products that use remotes often have an option for programing it to work with other equipment.
