Question about Hitachi 46W500 46 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Need a remote code that actually works!

Original Hitachi remote stopped working. Have tried two subsequent remotes--over 300 codes in all--won't even turn the TV on. Do I need to get a Hitachi remote again, or could it be the IR receiver is damaged (set is only 3 yrs old)? Please help!

I have never been a big fan of the universal remotes , but most of the times they do at least turn the tv on . You could possibly have a bad IR as well to . Whats your model # of the tv and what type of universal remote are you trying ?

I need remote code for my hitachi tv model#46f510


Its the same for almost every single Hitachi, if using a non Hitachi remote good luck as if it programs it will be missing key or needed features the original remote had.

Buttons stopped working


If there is a tv button on the remote, try pressing that..

Chances are its damaged and you might need to order a new one from Hitachi or possibly use a universal.. With remotes there really isnt much you can do when they stop functioning.

I have one of the old big screen tvs the hitachi rear view screen projector tvs I am trying to find a universal remote that would work perfect on it as we bought it from someone and didn't have a...


Generally universal remote controls won't work for all functions to any TV like its original remote do. Some functions may not differ, that is, if you try to up the volume, the tV's volume will go down, and so on. The most we can do is to try with other setup codes for the tV brand with the remote control, and synchronize it, check the functions, and accept a code which will give you most of TV's functions alright. I hereby attaches setup codes for Hitachi brand TV' both 3 digit and 4 digits. Try them, and see which code suits to your TV the most.
Three digit codes for Hitachi are: 001/ 004/ 009/ 013/ 059/ 061/ 079/ 088/ 091/ 137/ 139/ 140/ 141/ 142/ 143/ 144/ 145/ 146/ 179/ 210
Four digit codes are: 0088 0059 0142 0060 0072 0004 0009 0091 0001 0012 0061 0137 0139 0141 0179 0227

Direct Code Entry
  1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  2. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  3. Enter the 4 digit code from the code tables. Note: after a valid code entry, the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.
  4. With your device on, press CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. Note: If some buttons do not operate your device, try one of the other codes for your brand.

Code Search

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.

  1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
  2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  3. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on.
  4. 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.
  5. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
Most users will want to store VCR codes under the VCR button, Cable codes under CBL, etc. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter ANY VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search.
Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for more details. Click this link. View it in "Timeslide" option, which can be selected from the drop down box menu by the [Sidebar] tag, at the top left corner of the display window. It will make search easy. There are more than 1000 posts to different brand TVs now. Pull up older posts there.

Hitachi Ultrascan HD remote


Any Hitachi remote made over the last 15 years should work the basic functions of this model--Take a look on Ebay. Did the original get lost or stop working?

Polaroid remote tdac-02212 code?


If you are using a universal do not expect it to even if it programs to have all the functions you need or want or had with the original remote.

Universal remotes are far from UNIVERSAL.

The best argument for an original remote is even if it programs it will just not have all the features needed or wanted that the original had.

Hope this clears things up a little.

I lost my remote for hitachi CMP401XU and i dont know the remote # so let me know which remote i bye for it


any universal remote would work but hte hitachi remote for that model is expensive i suggest buying a logitec harmony universal remote for around 40 bucks from amazon. you plug it into you computer and just type your model number in it will install all the original options to this remote plus allow extra features such as activities where it can change the channel on your tv and turn your cable box on and let you change volume on your sound system without the hassle of having to use different remotes. and without having to hit different buttons i.e cable button to change channel and tv button for remote it will do it automatically

Remote code


Hello steeler,
I am David thank you for choosing FixYa.com for your answer.

I went to the comcast site and found the numers you have there is another way to try also here it is

Searching for a code If your home entertainment device does not respond to the remote control after trying all of the codes listed for your brand, or if your brand is not listed at all, try searching for your code.
Example: You've tried all the codes for your TV, but you still cannot get the remote control to operate your TV.
  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. On the remote control, press TV once.
  3. Then press and hold SETUP until the TV key blinks twice, then release the SETUP key.
  4. Using the number pad, enter 9-9-1. The TV key will blink twice.
  5. Aim the remote control at the TV and slowly alternate between pressing Power and TV. Stop when the TV turns off after pressing the POWER key. This means that a working code has been found.
  6. Press the SETUP key once to lock in the code. The TV key will blink twice.
I hope this helps you with your tv Thank you again for using FixYa.com
feel free to rate me on my answer thank you again.
