If there is no Menu button at the front panel of your TV, it will be difficult to access 70% of its controls. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability. Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the sites.

Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops. Visit some on-line sites too, which deals with electronic spare parts.

Model WD-65638. What are the instructions for programming remote?


If you have the original remote of your TV, it doesn't need to be pregrammed. If doesn't work, it's defective.
If you want to program a universal remote, you need the codes of the remote for your TV. If you don't have the manual you should look for it using google with terms

Manual make and model of remote

If you have a manual and no codes for your TV, follow the prodedure indicated to scan your TV with the remote till you find the code or cover all the range of the remote without getting a working code.

Philips 42pf7320a37 Plasma TV. Menu appears without being requested remotely or manually. Must select Menu Remotely (or manually) to regain screen. Screen stays on for a few seconds or up to 20...


Check that this is not caused from a stuck button, or a defective remote recalling the menu.

If it is not the remote, then you will probably need to replace the control board or the button assembly.

Operating a vivid tv without a remote


Remote controls can be had from several vendors on line. Just Google "replacement remote controls" You can find an original remote so you won't have to settle for a universal one. If you have a sound system connected to the TV you can get a Logitech remote that will operate the entire system and it will never be obsolete because you program the remote on their website.

How do i turn the Panel lock function off on my Regza 42xv600a without the remote?


This may not be possible; it may be designed to prevent children from operating the set without an adult with the remote present.
You can probably buy an original remote or a known substitute from:

My remote will not work the tv anymore


Hi,

there are three possible causes for this problem;

1. Batteries may be dead inside the remote.
2. Remote might be defctive.
3. TV remote sensor/infrared might be defective.

Battries; Simply insert new batteries into the remote and try again. If changing batterises doesn't help, problem as to be from the Remote or TV's infrared.

Remote: Check the remote battery terminal, see if its not rust. Also, disassemble the remote, can check the connection between the terminal and the remote board, see if there is no disconnection of any kind.

If after checking and all seems well, then it means the remote is defective. To confirm, borrow a remote, test it with the TV. If it works, then it means you need to replace your remote. But if the remote you borrowed does not work, then it means the problem is from the TV and not the remote.

TV: There is a sensor in the TV that communicates with the remote. If this sensor is defective, the remote won't communicate with the TV.

The TV sensor might have loosed contact from inside of the TV or it maybe defective and need to be replaced.

So do the above troubleshooting and let me know if the problem is from the TV or remote. If problem is from the remote, you need to do a replacement. But if otherwise, let me knows as well.

Yours sincerely

My TV does not respond to the remote. I can only turn the tv on and regulate the sound by pushing the bottons on the TV


Hi,

IS it a universal remote? If yes, remove the battery, wait for 10 seconds or more, fix the battery back in and re-register the remote with the TV by entering the code. But it the remote works with the TV without code, try again. If this doesn't fix the problem, please read further.

Try the remote with new batteries, ff new batteries did not fix the problem, then it means the problem is either from the remote or the TV.

I hope the above makes sense to you.....

I've got a samsung le32m8 tv. the remote is not working light flickers on remote and tv but nothing happens. the power button is the only one working


You should try another remote to determine if the remote is actually defective, or there is a fault in the TV set. I have seen both scenarios, of either the TV was defective, or the remote was defective.

I suspect the remote to be defective more than the TV having a problem. The reason is that you can use the remote to turn the power on and off in the first place. This means that in the TV the IR receiver module, and the remote circuit processing to the uPC is responding.

If it is not the remote that is defective and the TV's IR path is responding, there are several other possibilities. There may be lockout function in the user menu that locks out the main controls from the remote. There may be some other type of defect with the uPC system controller. This can be firmware, or some type of hardware failure which would be a bad device in this area on the circuit board.

There are control circuits for the functions in your set. In most TV sets they are shared with the front panel controls. There could be a fault in this area as well.

Anything past trying another remote to verify the remote functionality of the TV, and checking the user menu for a lockout feature, will indicate that there will be the requirement for technical service.
