Re: did not turn on

I'm having the same problem with my SVA. It would turn on and after an hour or so it would power off but the red light would still be on. It got so bad that after a few mins it would power off. Then one day nothing but I still had the red light. I opened the back of the tv and found some leakage of a transformer (maybe a cap) on the power supple board. I order a new board. I will let you know if it works or not. Email me if you figured out what was wrong with yours as I think we have the same problem.

SVA hd4208t3pdp. How do I turn on without remote?

Without a remote control, you can't. 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 Check this site too.
Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops. Visit some online sites too, which deals with electronic spare parts.

Is there a remote for SVA PDP HD4208TIII that is a universal remote or would I have to buy the original one for approx $40 ish ????

There are universal remotes that seem to be able to operate almost anything, available at stores, but I don't know how much you would save over the $40 original... The Universal remote could be used with a new TV when you replace this one, though.

If you have a universal remote you can use its "code search" feature to locate a suitable code. If the search is unsuccessful, there may be no suitable code available in the remote's library.

Lost remote-have universal remote

You can use any universal remote for any Electronics device
Here you can find almost all the Universal remote codes
you can also manually find it follow your universal remote control user guide If after trying "Direct Code Entry" your device does not respond, or if your brand is not listed, try doing a search of the code library for your code by following these steps.
Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.

Lost remote

You can try to buy a new remote from and see if they can ship it overseas. The unit that you need is an SVA-U01. Good luck.

Remote control codes

The only remote that works is the one 4 all. Call ONE 4 ALL for the right model number. They then can program the remote on the phone to operate the SVA tv. It worked for me until the set died this week. Guess why I am looking on this site.
