RCA Universal Remote stopped working


My RCA universal remote stopped working two days ago. Checked the batteries, brand new batteries are not working. I didn't this was the problem since the red light comes on whenever you press any button, the command you are requesting just doesn't work.

I tried to reprogram it by searching for the code like the instructions say on the inside of the battery cover, this did not work.

Any suggestions before I buy a new remote?

RCA DVD/TV remote not working

You may have corroded battery input terminals in the remote control. Try using some electronic contact cleaner to clean the contacts. If that does not work try putting in a new set of batteries. If this does not work, you will need to get a new remote control.Having it repaired will cost as much as getting a new one. I hope this information helps you with you problem with the remote control. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day.

First of all, make sure you have good batteries in the original remote(I have seen brand new batteries be bad) and make sure that the connections are clean. Then make sure that the remote is in TV mode and see if it will work your TV. If there are no codes for your TV that came with the RCA remote, you will need one that does, or you will need to replace the original remote. I have seen a lot of times where universal remotes will not work combo units at all, no matter if there are codes listed or not.

Hard to say what the code is without knowing the model number of the remote and the brand of TV.

RCA's website has a remote code finder you can use.

Good luck!

Did you install the batteries correctly?
Some remotes (Universal) need to be re-programed when you install new batteries.
