All universal remotes come with a code book that will tell you the brands they can control. So far there isn't a remote made that can control ANY TV because the manufacturer of the TV has to communicate information about the frequency their remotes work on to the people that make universal remotes. Some TV makers don't do that, so as a result their TVs can't be controlled any universal remote that's available.

The only way to see if a particular one will operate your particular TV is to find out if the maker of your TV is in the code book of the remote you're looking at purchasing. You may be able to find the information on the internet without actually making the purchase.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

Zenith remote codes


If it is the original remote control that comes with Plasma TV, there is no need for any set-up codes. It will be pre-programmed to work with the TV. If it doesn't, might have some other fault, either to TV or Remote control.

I cannot find picture controls for my tv? No sound controls button either!!


On most TVs, all the picture and sound adjustments are made through on-screen menus. To get to them, you need the original TV remote control (or a compatible replacement) with the proper MENU functions. On some sets there's one main menu to work through, while others have separate buttons for picture and sound control settings.

Some brands and models of TV have a front-panel menu button. Maybe yours does. Sadly, though, many sets now have just a power button and need the remote control for everything else. The biggest trouble I find is that people get used to using the remote that comes with a cable box, satellite receiver or similar device which will turn the TV on and off but that's all. The original remote mysteriously gets lost (I've actually run into people who threw the original control out because they didn't think they needed it), and then you find you can't get at any other TV settings. It's especially annoying if you can't switch to another input, say for a game console or DVD player.

Hopefully, you still have your control. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Hi Gerald P, just posted we experienced same problem. Few minutes later my husband has finally solved our problem. Don't know whether you can try the same. We had an old FOXTEL remote, got onto FOXTEL site and instructions how to program remote to control TV.

Dowloaded instructions with code for TV (after trying a few tries, the fifth code solved it). FOXTEL control needs to be programmed with the code suitable to TV. By pressing "ON", "AV", Red button and Select (at same time) then put code in. Turn "OFF" then "ON" see if code complies. If not try another one until you get it.

By using the FOXTEL remote on the "AV" you can change the channels on the TV and adjust volume up or down as well.

Hope this can help you in your situation. Glad we are up and running again. Bye
