Remote control code for Philips VCR & DVD player DVP3340V/17

Dear Expert,
I am having no sucess in finding the remote control code for my newly purchased Philips VCR &DVD combo player. I simply prefer one remote for all home intertainment systems. The code cannot be found in the manual or is it in the list of codes that come with the universal remote. I've called Philips tech support for both the player and the universal remote,which is a Philips product, and it baffles me that no one can get me a simple remote code for this product!
Please help if you can, Thank You,

Re: Remote control code for Philips VCR & DVD player...

If you have Dish Network and I suspect if you have Direct TV or a cable providers, you can use your remote for that service provider to find your VCR code. For the Dish you can look in the user's guide on pages 9 and 19 to see how to do a "Device Code Scan" and "Check Device Code".
To Scan: #1: Turn on the device you wish to scan for a code, #2 Press and hold down the button on your Dish remote for that device until all the buttons light up and the specific device button is flashing, #3 Press the blank power button, #4 press the up or down button until until your VCR tuns off, #5 Press the POUND ( # ) key to store the code number and #6 Press the blank power key to turn the device back on.
To Check the Device Code: #1 Press and hold down the device key until all buttons light up and the device button is flashing, next press the POUND ( # ) key TWICE ! The Mode button will flash to code number with a pause between each number, i.e. 5 flashes, pause 3 flaskes, pause one quick flash is 530. Write down this number and you are rady to go !

Have a magnavox dvd vcr combo but don't have the right remote for it is it possiable to get the right remote for it

Possibly. Try and enter the model number of the unit (do not include the brand name). Otherwise, you may be able to find a universal remote that will work. Make sure that the remote is newer than the DVD/VCR unit by at least 6 months. (There is a delay between the release of a device and the codes for it getting to the people who build and program various universal remotes.)

I hope this helps.

Trying to find remote codes for model vr620cat

Not surprised, none match the codes for Philips VCR!
Here's the correct ones: 1009, 1033, 1065, 1066, 1067, 1100, 1133, 1145, 1162, 1163, 1164, 1200, 1207, 1239, 1240, 1243.
Remember some codes may work parts of the VCR and not all, so you might have to try several or maybe all of them to get the best match!
Good luck!

No manual or remote

Following the instructions I have been able to program a Philips SRU4105WM/17 universal remote using the first Mitsubishi code from the code list. However, I had to have the universal remote "learn" the vcr/tv button function (I assigned it to the Exit button). Good thing I still have the original Mitsubishi remote:-) I haven't tried having the universal remote learn all the functions, such as Cancel, Counter Reset, Audio Function, Video Function etc. I could see if I'm able to program those, if you'd like. LMK if you have any other questions.

Is there a channel to go to when you want to watch from a dvd player?

The VCR will most likely see the DVD player on AV1 try and find a button marked "input" or "av" on either the universal remote or on the VCR itself.
