Cannot program Dish Universal Remote for Emerson TV

We got our parents an Emerson TV LC320EM8 for Christmas. The only problem is that the Dish Network Universal Remote will not recognize any of the codes provided in the book. Any suggestions of codes or ways to program the remote so they don't have to have two remotes lying around?

    Hi, Bhuffman! I bought the LC320EM8 today and am having the same problem. I have an electronics degree and nothing gets past me. My local Dish Network provider says I need to sign up for another 18 month contract, which gets me new equipment and remotes; I've seen this dirty sales trick done before. The new remotes Dish Network has won't program a new digital tv any better than the old remotes. For now, until Dish Network or DirecTV convert to ALL DIGITAL and Hi-Def, I believe we're stuck using two remotes. In a few months (hopefully) some satellite provider will have real digital capabilities and compatability and connectivity for convenient and user friendly operation.

    I have the same problem with the Emerson LC320EM8A. Bought one for my parents for Christmas who are 87 years old and they need two remotes to operate the living room set. The Panasonic in the kitchen works fine. I've called Emerson and gotten codes for other makers and tried all of those and I've recently gone on line with Directv to get more codes some which I have already tried but there are some new ones that I haven't tried yet.

    I have the same problem with a Emerson LCD 32" digital tv I bought at Walmart. I cannot program the universal remote (I control) to operate the tv's volume and on/off switch. None of the codes work.

This worked for me. I had to scan down quite a few times but eventually my tv turned off and I set the code with the # button. It may work for you too and save you some money on a UR.
Scan For Device Codes If the code for the device you are programming is not listed in the user manual or on this site, try these steps to scan the remote controls memory for device codes.

1) Turn the power on the device on

2) Select and hold the mode button for which you are programming, such as the TV button, on the remote until you see all the lights of the mode buttons flash. Once you let go, that mode button that you chose should now be blinking. When using the Aux mode button only use the number pad to enter 0 for a second TV, 1 for a second VCR/DVD, 2 for a amplifier, tuner, or cable box. Then press the STAR (*) button.

3) Press the power button on the Dish Network remote control.

4) Repeatedly press the UP or DOWN button on the remote to scan for the correct code (do this slowly so you do not skip over the right code for your device). When the correct code is reached the device will turn off.

5) Press the POUND (#) button to store the code in the Dish Network remote.

6) Press the power button to turn the device back on and try using other buttons on the remote to make sure that they also work. Sometimes the power button will work while others may not.

I had the same issue. I purchased a Logitech Harmony 520 at Walmart and voila everything works. It's the slickest device I have seen. Setup by PC software it easily allows remote key customization. Highly recommended.

I also ran into this problem, the installation guy gave up on the code search. however, the universal remote idea saved me, and got rid of alot of remote clutter. i purchased a "sony rm-vl610" universal learning remote from target for $30, and recommend it highly.

Dish Network Remote Codes? Can't seem to get the few I have to work the dish remote

If your remote is a learning remote (has a little black glossy square on the top left side of the remote) you don't need a code, you just need the original remote. Place both remotes on a table, or other flat, sturdy surface, with the original TV remote facing the square on the DISH remote. Make sure both remotes have functioning batteries. On the DISH remote, hold down TV until the button blinks three times, then hold down record (for 5+ seconds) until the TV button lights up and stays on. Then, slowly, for each key you want to use, hit the key on the DISH remote (TV light blinks) then the corresponding key on the original remote (TV light blinks). For example: DISH Volume Up, TV remote Volume Up. When you are done learning all the keys you want to train, hit SAT. The TV light will blink three times, then the SAT light will light up for a moment. Try the DISH remote on your TV functions.

Lost remote for emerson lc320em8 32 in. lcd tv, how can i adjust the screen mode to get full screen without the remote?

It is immpossible to set its screen resolution or screen size, without it remote control. Try to get one original remote control, from the authorised service center for Emerson at your town, or buy a universal remote control, which have setup codes for Emerson TV with it. OK.

Emerson TV LC320EMXF Remote code for Direc TV

I got the same TV for my stepdaughter and had the same problem. None of the Emerson codes worked. We use Dish Network but I did the autoscan thing on the remote and found that it was 672 which is listed as a Sylvania. I don't know if it will help in your case but maybe try the Sylvania codes. Good luck.
