Yes - Likely one of the front panel buttons is stuck on (shorted or changed value) and the TV refuses to accept any other commands until that stuck button is fixed - What is the model #?

The tv doesn't react when pressing the power button. What can I do to fix this?


Things You'll Need:
  • Batteries
    • 1 Press the "TV" button and then press the "Power" button on the remote. If the TV turns on, your remote was just switched off of TV mode.
    • 2 Reprogram your remote to your TV. Universal remote controls can be accidentally unprogrammed by sitting on the wrong combination of buttons or having the batteries disconnect from the inner connections.
    • 3 Unplug the TV from the electrical outlet for a few minutes and plug it back in. This will reset the TV in case a power surge caused the TV to become "confused."
    • 4 Replace the batteries with new ones. Do not use old batteries from a different device in your house because if the batteries do not work, you won't be able to determine anything because those batteries may not have enough juice to power the remote. Keep in mind that different devices have different needs, so the batteries may have had enough power for something else to work but not enough for your remote.
    • 5 Check the batteries to see if they are inserted in the right direction. It's possible that someone dropped the remote, the batteries fell out and then were inserted incorrectly.
    • 6 Press the "Power" button on the TV set to determine that the TV is not dead. A dead TV will not turn on from a remote.
    • 7 Program the remote to another TV. If the second TV works from the remote, the problem is with your TV's remote signal receiver

I have the radion shack hdtv remote. Cat no


Download the manual and codes from here

http://www.remotecentral.com/cgi-bin/files/dl.cgi?file=others/radio_shack/15135-manual.zip&area=other

Here is how to set the code...

1. Turn TV on
2. Press TV button on remote
3. Hold P button on remote until LED blinks twice
4. Enter the first 5 digit code for Magnavox TV's
5. Press Power button - TV should turn off. If TV doesn't turn off repeat steps 2-5 with the next 5 digit code, until either TV goes off or run out of codes.
6. If out of codes use searching for code method below...

TV codes for Magnavox

10047, 11454, 10054, 10154, 10000, 10250, 10051, 10180, 10060, 10030, 10171, 10092, 10706, 11913, 11904, 11755, 10019, 11365, 11254, 10802, 10386, 10282, 10020, 10187, 10186, 10024, 10179, 10096

Searching for code

1. Turn on TV.
2. Press TV button on remote
3. Press and hold P button until LED blinks twice
4. Enter code 991 on remote - LED blinks twice
5. Press 1 - Device key blinks twice
6. Press Power button once
7. Press and release CH+ key until TV turns off.

At this point in the manual, the manual is only correct depending on what type of TV you have.

In the manual if you press the Power on button the TV should turn itself back on, the fail to state that not all TV's turn on by the power button, the majority now are triggered to turn on, on channel change, however you can't use channel change here to check it as you'll go to the next code... here is my solution...

8. Turn TV back on either using original TV remote, or buttons on front (most TV's if you change channels they come back out of standby mode, very few now turn on by pressing the power button).

9. Press Power button on remote - TV should turn itself off again.
10. Press P button on remote to lock in that code.

If the device does not turn off press CH- to go back through the codes, press and release P button when TV turns off.

Finding code

If you used the search function you might want to know what code it's using. To do this follow these instructions...

1. Press TV button
2. Press and hold P until LED blinks twice
3. Enter 990 and LED blinks twice
4. Press 1 and count number of times LED blinks this is the first digit of your code (e.g. 1 blink = 1, 2 blinks = 2, etc).
5. Repeat step 4 pressing buttons 2 - 5 for the other digits (e.g. for the second digit press 2 count number of blinks.. etc)

At this point the manual doesn't tell you how to get out of this mode, I presume pressing any other button on the remote other than 1-5 will take you out of this mode, either that or leaving the remote alone for 5 minutes.

JUST BOUGHT AN OPEN BOX TOSHIBA T.V. MODEL #26LV61OU LCD-HD AND IT DIDN'T HAVE A REMOTE. IT'S WORKING WITH MY VERIZON FIOS BUT I CAN'T CONTROL THE SOUND. WHAT TYPE OF REMOTE SHOULD I GET FOR THIS T.V. AND...


The remote that came with your Verizon FIOS can be programmed to control the sound on your TV. There are four different remotes can come with Verizon FIOS, and there are three different procedures to program them. I will give you all three to print out try to fix your remote control problem.

Does your remote look like either of these two?

316d5d4.gif 050b5d7.gif

If so you have a Philips universal remote. Here are the steps to find the code that will control the sound on your TV:

1) Turn on the device you want to program into your remote, for example if you are programming your remote to control your TV, then turn on the TV.

2) Press and hold the device button for the device you turned on in step 1 (DVD, AUX, TV, STB) and press OK. Release both buttons. The mode buttons blink twice.

3) Press 922.

4) Point the remote control toward the device you are setting up and press the upper part of the Play button.

5) Press the Fast Forward button. If the device you are setting up does not turn off, keep pressing the Fast Forward button until the device powers off. (You can use the Rewind button to go back, if necessary.)

6) When the device powers off then you've found the correct code for that device. Press OK to assign the code in your remote control.

Note:
There are over 200 possible combinations for TV and DVD codes. The most common codes are tried first but you may still need to press the Fast Forward or Rewind buttons over 200 times to find the correct code for your device.

If you reach the end of the list of codes, the entire remote flashes twice and returns to normal operation. You can exit programming at any time by pressing the Exit button.


Does your remote look like this?

If so, your have a Motorola universal remote. These are the steps to find the correct code to control your tv:

  1. Turn on the device you want to program into your remote, for example if you are programming your remote to control your TV, then turn on the TV.


  2. Note: The DVD/VCR button can control a DVD, VCR, or a combination TV/DVD, TV/VCR, or TV/DVD/VCR.

  3. Press and hold for six seconds the device button for the device you turned on in step 1 (AUDIO, DVD/VCR, TV, CABLE).


  4. The lights for each device button light up and the light for the device button you selected remains on.

  5. Press the Power button on your remote.


  6. The device button blinks three times then turns off.

  7. Press the Up arrow button (this is the button directly above the OK button, not the Page Up button).


  8. Did the device turn off?
    Yes: Congratulations! You've found the correct code for that device. Press OK to store the code in your remote control.
    No: Repeat step 3 and 4 until your device turns off, then press OK to store the code in the remote control.

    Note: To retry the previous code, press the Down arrow button (not the Page Down Arrow button).


Does your remote look like this?

If so, you have a Scientific-Atlanta universal remote. Here is how to find the control codes for your TV:

  1. Turn on the device you want to program into your remote, for example if you are programming your remote to control your TV, then turn on the TV.


  2. Press and hold the Select button while also pressing the device button for the device you turned on in step 1 (AUX, DVD, VCR, TV, CBL) until the device button blinks twice.


  3. Press 991.


  4. The mode button blinks twice.

  5. Point the remote control toward the device you are setting up and press the Play button.


  6. The remote control tests each code in its library. The mode button blinks once each time the remote transmits a new code. When the last code is reached, the mode button blinks twice.

  7. When the device powers off, press the Select button.


  8. Verify the new code is correct by pressing the Power button.

    Did the device power on again?
    Yes: Press Select to assign the code in your remote control.
    No: Turn the device on and press the Channel Up or Channel Down button to step forward or back to the correct code. When the device turns off, press Select to assign the code.
___________

One of those three should work for you.
Hope that helps.

Universal remote px-rc1


Hi! This worked for me! I'm Leyz/leheart from the Philippines. I'm typing in CDRKing or CD-R King or CDR King Universal Remote Control PX-RC1 so that these keywords will show up if someone's looking for it too.
Mcneileric is right!
Real TV should be on! On the remote, press and hold the SET and DEVICE TYPE (in my case TV) at the same time. (Note: SET button is not any other button but the one with the word SET on it. You might have been searching on youtube and found that they are pressing other SET buttons but do press the SET button with the SET word). Then press SET again. Press the POWER button then + CHANNEL button then POWER button then +CHANNEL button then POWER button then +CHANNEL. (This process is so the remote could look for the code while you are pressing the +CHANNEL and the POWER is to see if the tv will turn off/respond to the remote). Do this repeatedly until the time that when you press the POWER button, the real TV turns off which means the real TV now responds. You will be shocked so DON'T press the +CHANNEL button anymore as this will instruct the device to look for another code. Instead, press the DEVICE TYPE button (TV for my case) to finish the set up.
NOW YOU CAN USE the REMOTE! Press the POWER button and this will turn on the TV!
Again...
TV onPress and hold SET button (yes, the button with the word SET) and DEVICE type button (TV/VCR,etc) at the same time for about 3 secondsPress SET againPress Power to check if the TV turns off^^If nothing happens, press +CHANNEL to search for codePress Power again to check if TV turns off^^If nothing happens, repeat the step between ^^ and ^^If the TV now turns off after pressing the POWER button, press the DEVICE type button to finish the setup.
Mcneileric, THANK YOU!!!!

Comcast Remote Control Code


comcast sucks and its tech support are a bunch of idiots. the book that comes with the remote is wrong (and for some reason no one in tech support knows this). the remote requires 5 digit codes and all the codes in the book are 4. typing the number 1 in front of any of the codes in the book, for any device and manufacturer, should fix this problem.

Lcd screen does not stay on.


Not really a solution, but a workaround. You can enter public mode menu and disable power off by power button. Hold the remote in one hand (you'll need it later), and with the other hand maintain "volume " and "input" buttons on the TV, and press the power button. Maintain the power button depressed otherwise the TV will power off. You can release the other buttons. The TV should display a "Public mode" dialog box where you can input a 3-digit password. Enter "027" with the remote. The TV should display the public mode menu. It is operated with the cursor arrows of the remote. Highlight the "power on fixed" item. Change it to "fixed". Then highlight "execute" and press OK on the remote. You should now be able to release the power button without turning off the TV.
In Sharp's own words :
In "Fixed" setting, the power-off by the power key of the unit is invalidated and the image is kept being received. The power can be turned off by stopping the power supply from AC.
Note that you won't be able to turn the TV off with the remote either.
Also, if you wish to enter public mode menu again, you will have to disconnect and reconnect the power cord on the back of the TV while maintaining "volume " and "input" buttons depressed, because the power button is no longer operating.
