Question about Remote Controls
I bought a universal jumbe remote control but can not get the codes that I have tried so far to work with the above TV---help!
Your TV is made by Daewoo and is distributed by Daytek. If you call the 800 number on the warranty card you will reach Daytek.
So, what you need to know is this:
#1. A lot of new products won't have a website available. That does not say anything to their quality or the company, just that you've bought a new product and you're one of the first purchasers.
#2. A lot of times if you buy a "no name" TV, you're actually getting components inside the TV that are made by brand name manufacturers. For example, "Prima" uses LG panels in some of their plasma TVs (as well as Daytek). How do I know this? Because I'm the authorized service provider for Daytek, and Prima and quite a few other "no name" TVs, and I've been working on LCD and Plasma since they came out, as well as having worked in the electronics repair industry for over 20 years. I own an Insignia 42" LCD and am quite happy with it.
#3. Most new products that have remote controls will not have codes available for them no matter what brand of universal remote you buy. You have to wait for the people who make the universal remote to have time to make a code for this new brand of TV. This can take up to a year for cable companies, and cheaper universal remotes may never get the code. Expensive universal remotes may be able to have their firmware updated through the internet, so adoption of new codes for new products may happen faster.
#4. Stores like Walmart and Costco are excellent places to buy products like this because they usually have a "no questions asked" return policy if you get the TV back to the store within the stores time limit for returns (some stores are 15 days, some are 30 days, phone the store and ask them). I had purchased a 40" Digistar LCD TV from Walmart what had a flickering problem, I took it back the next day without any problem at all. Then I bought a 42" Insignia Plasma TV from Future Shop that I wasn't happy with. I took it back 3 days later and had no problem at all. As long as you know the stores policy for returns and follow the policy, you won't have any problems either.
#5. Try to avoid buying big-ticket items from smaller stores unless you know their return policies. Some smaller stores will not accept returns on LCD monitors, TVs or plasma TVs but instead require you to handle any problems through the manufacturer.
#6. Best bet it to call Daytek and ask them if they know of any universal remotes that work on that particular model.

Turn on device that you want to set
Aim remote at the device
Press the device button for the item you wish to program and the LED will blink once
Press and hold the set button unti the LED lights up solid red
Using the number keys, enter the 4 digit code from the list. After you have entered the 4th digit, the LED will turn off, indicating that the code for the device was recognized.
If the device powers off, test the functions for the other buttons (except OK button). If all the functions work, press the OK button to store the code. If the indicator light remains solid red after blinking 3 times the code is incompatable. You then need to restart back on step 2.
Make a note of the correct 4 digit code for future use.
COde search setting is an alternative method to programming your device without using the code list
Turn on the device you want to set
Aim the remote control at the device
Press the decive button for the item you want to program

Press the MUTE/SEARCH button. The LED will shut off first then light up solid red.
When the device turns off, press the OK button to store this code.

Press the NUMBER 1 then count the number of flashes
Press the NUMBER 2 etc
Press the NUMBER 3 ets
Press the NUMBER 4 etc
If the LED light flashes 10 times the number is 0
Hope this helps

I recently bought a used LCT2060 that had no remote. I figured my comcast cable remote would work without a problem but it didn't. So 3 universal remotes later I found my solution...a radio shack universal gamer remote. It controls up to 5 components plus your xbox360, playstation and pc. The price on sale was a mere 12.97, not bad if you ask me. Hope this helped. The code that worked for the Akai was 11676. Take care...

My Daenyx DN-191 D TV remote stopped worked after a while. I didnt get one universal remote that works with this piece of junk. I called their customer service at 1-877-329-8351. They said the remote will be $30 + $7 (shipping) + tax. Your best bet will be to buy a replacement remote or better toss this junk off the window.
