Question about RCA 20F510TD 20 in. TV/DVD Combo

RCATV remote not working.

My tv remote is not working. Tried universal remotes and I even ordered a new remote specifically for the tv and no luck. I think the sensor in the TV itself must be bad. Where would I find one and what would the part number be.
Thank You

    My father-in-law is in a nursing home.

    The remote for the RCA 20F510TD was missing.

    I just purchased an RCA Universal Remote at Walmart.

    The codes - in the remote manual - did not work.

    Does anyone have the correct code ?

Good luck!! I just spent an hour on phone with idiots at AudioVox....The number I was given when I called RCA. I bought an RCA Universal remote, assuming it would be compatible with the RCA TV/DVD COMBO. They gave me a code of 1000/3160. Did not work. I called again and they told me that I should go and try a different model remote(higher price) I told them that I was going to have to pay a repackaging charge on the return and I didn't want to get another one unless they could assure it would work. they could not. I was told that it was hit or miss proposition. I can't believe that they don't have a cross reference of their products(since both are RCA), as which would work with which...They could care less the tv model# or the original remote model# . The model of the remote he suggested, isn't even listed on their remote list on the site. It is an 8 function one instead of 4. why I need 8 when I only trying to control a tv and dvd is also an unanswerable question This is insane. It is also insane to expect a customer to go out and buy something, trial and error method, and have to pay repackaging charges each return. I asked him if it were his money, would he do it, he responded "probably not" . I told him that this experience has taught me that RCA is piece of crap when it comes to support and I will never buy one of their products or branch products again....I was told I was being unreasonable, that it was an engineering issue. If this is as good as their support can be for a damn remote control, I hate to see what it is for more technical issues. My original remote still works, but it is a pain to use. Buttons are small and print even smaller.Virtually unusable in a poorly lit room. I plan on taking this up, higher in chain of command. Last person I spoke with was a supervisor in support at AudioVox (Francis). Crappy engineering, no cross reference available and even worse attitude by support team. Best of are definitely going to need it.

Universal Remote Codes Not Working

Probably your RCA remote control does not have a specific code for your Sylvania TV. all universal remote controls do not contain all possible codes. You may have to try a different universal remote control. Follow the specific instructions for programming.

Ceiling fan has no remote, does not work with switch

Home Depot/Lowe's etc have a remote kit specific to ceiling fans. your universal remote may not be compatible with your specific type of remote sensor that is up in the base of your ceiling fan. Check a user's manual to see the specifications of your specific Model # of fan to see what requirements they set for it. You would probably be better off just getting a new kit for an average $12 to get it working again.

Wish you luck.

Cant find code for my emmerson lcd tv tried auto scan for 4/days

How new is the universal remote? A lot of the time, older universal remotes are unable to control newer tvs (like most lcds). I would recommend buying a new remote or contacting the tv's manufacturer to see if they can provide one specifically for your particular set. Good luck!

I want to program my vcr to my RCA remote but dont know how.

Are you referring to the remote that came with your TV? If so I do not believe it is possible to program that particular remote to control other devices besides the TV. The first link below is to the manual for your TV. There is nothing in it about controlling other devices. They want you to buy a Universal Remote along with the TV. They are so thoughtful.":)

If you are taking about an RCA universal remote.
Since I don't know exactly which RCA remote you are trying to program I'm unable to give you any specifics on programing it. However I can provide you with a link to RCA remotes where you should be able to find your specific model and get a manual to help you out. Once you find your model click the picture and scroll down to the next page that opens at the bottom there will be links to Specifications, Support and Manuals and Accessories.
Hope this helps.

TV doesn't turn on with remote

The infrared receiver on the TV is probably dead. If you're handy or know someone that is handy you could pull the TV apart and get the part number to order a new one and try replacing it to see if your remote starts to magically work again.
