Can not access menu from universal remote

When I program in my universal remote, I can not access the menu. I get there and the buttons dont work to scroll. The original remote is broken in half and can not use it. How can I get through the menu without a remote?

Acessing Menu with universal remote

We used a One4All model URC3021BOO remote. We programmed BOTH the TV function and the DVD/vcr button with code 0807.  To access the menu PRESS TV then MENU button then DVD/VCR button will allow you to change menu functions using left and right and select buttons. *TV button will access Menu screen BUT NO menu functions. * DVD/VCR button will NOT access menu screen but WILL control menu functions if menu is already displayed. May work with other sharp products, or other universal remotes? These original (RRMCG1330PESA) remotes run 38.00+ to buy new so try this FIRST!

I have a Toshiba TV/DVD combo model MD20Q42 and revieved it without the remote. I need to get the television to memorize all channels so I can click the channel up and down buttons but my universal remote...

One option: get a replacement original remote from (direct URL)

The other option is to get a higher end remote that can be programmed from your computer to match the TV's remote (but check if your tv is supported first).

I hope this helps.

I have a Panasonic TV/VCR combo my kids deleted all the channels out of it, and we don't have the remote. Tried getting codes from the cable company but didn't work. Model # PV-C1321A Model # 120V AC60Hz...

A universal remote can be programmed for your tv/vcr. Then you can access the menu to auto program your tv. Otherwise there should be a button on the front that allows you to access the menu and then auto program the unit.

No remote specific to Sharp combo to turn off closed captionning

on some models the menu button is on the front disguised as the volume up/down or channel up/down buttons. you have to push both up/down buttons on either one of these to bring up the menu.

Can't get cable remote to operate GE 19TVR62

I found these remotes control VCR's only when programmed into the DVD button. It even says on page one of the manual that the DVD button is for DVD's, TV/VCR's, VCR's, etc. I got code 607 to control my GE VCR (using the DVD button). If that doesn't work, try 572 647 563 609 644 645 or 531.

Remote control

I used a GE Universal remote. The package has number 24921 and the instruction manual says it's a RM24912. Anyway, this model will control pretty much all aspects of this tv combo assuming we are talking about the KLH KDT133UY tv/dvd.

What you need to do is program the tv button on the remote to code 0029 which is a KONKA code. The real maker of KLH electronics. Then set the dvd/vcr button to code 0905. Now in order to access the tv menu, press the tv button then press the shift button which is the setup button. Then press the INFO button for menu. SHIFT, MENU, OK, and EXIT are printed with a black backgroung on the remote. Hince you need to press shift.

Took a while to figure it out, but here you go. Good Luck!

The universal remote does not bring up the menu so I can program all the cable channels in it. I don't know what to do. It is only receiving non cable channels. Help me so I don't have to keep watching...

alot of universal remotes dont let you program your tv with them due to how much more mem they would need. you have to use your actual tv remote or do it manually with the tv. sorry

I need to program my tv to Cable but I don't have a remote

You'll need to get a universal remote if not the original... The original can be purchased from places like and a good universal from Radio Shack... I'd strongly recommend getting the original because some features are ONLY accessible through the original remote. Good Luck! Bill
