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 ?

Remote doesn't work is there a code like most TV remotes


If your ORIGINAL remote stopped working , check batteries, contacts, etc. you even might seek service but take note: oriiginal remote has no "codes". It's unique and specific for your MODEL.
Universal controls might cover many features but they are never as complete as original and need code input for each model / brand

Looking for remote code for Hitachi 37LD900DTA. THANKS


Set-up codes with universal remote control; to check with Hitachi brand TVs are 0271,0288. These are the general set-up codes, that intended to work with most models Hitachi sets. There are many other codes too, you should try, if these codes do not work with your TV.
If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
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 site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.

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.

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.

System won't play a CD without remote! We lost it, so we need a replacement please. How do we get one? Thanks.


What model?

Try http://www.remotes.com/ with the unknown model number, then zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site to get the actual remote model number for subsequent web searching if necessary. Also check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remote", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.
