    The other two remotes are the original RCA remotes that come with the set. One came with it and I ordered the other one. I just tried the universal remote as a last resort kind of thing.
    Thanks for your help

    The first two remotes I tried were ones that are OEM to the set. One came with it, the other I ordered from RCA

Hi.

If the problem persisted, even using different remotes, then it is not the remote, but the IR sensor on TV.

There are three models with same number:

The IR sensor is part of the Led assembly in front of the TV.

To access the sensor is necessary to remove back panel and main controller board.

Here the part for L40FHD41YX7, cost is about $10:

LED IR ASSY 40-0C5M19-IRD1XG from RCA L40FHD41YX7

Please do not forget to leave feedback.

Thanks.

I do not think that the problem is with the TV, but the universal remotes and/or the codes. Although they are supposed to "work" on the TV and other devices that they list, sometimes not all of the functions work on every device. Even though you have it sync'd to your TV, try other codes for your RCA and/or the "search" feature to see if that helps. Can either of the two remotes work any other TV's in your home? Are the remotes the same manufacturer? I have always had luck with the Philips Magnavox PMDVR8 - universal remote control which was around $10 at Walmart or Kmart.
You can also use a DirecTv remote as a universal remote (around $20 at best buy). My DirecTv remote works my Samsung TV, Sony Receiver, Samsung DVD player, and I believe is superior to other universal remotes. I used to use the Philips Magnavox cited above for all of the same before I got DirecTv, plus still use them on another Sony Trintron TV, Magnovox TV, Mitsubishi TV, Pioneer DVD player, and Toshiba DVD player perfectly. As I said even though the remotes you have work the TVs with the exception of the power on/off issue, try recoding them again with a different code(s). I hope this helps and good luck!

    Can you get any of the three remotes to work on any other device or TV properly?

I need the Dish Network code for my RCA L40FHD41 tv


You have hopefully gotten this resolved by now, but here are some simple steps if you still have questions, or need any more help.

To program the remote to the TV:
1. Hold down the clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up
2. Punch in a 3-digit code (provided below for RCA tvs)
3. Press the # (pound) button
4. Try to power the tv on/off, and change the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start again at step 1 with a different code.
5. Press the SAT button once the remote is fully programmed

RCA universal nor cable remote will program RCA L40FHD41 TV


might be able to use the cable co remote and autosearch thru the codes, but its too hard to explain, the cable tech should have ran that procedure. unfortunately, rca has 50 million models. it is common to have a tv and yes rca for sure, to not take the codes. sometimes the tv is too new for the cable company remotes to work. i am leaning toward the tv too new theory. give it six months and i bet there will be a new remote version.

No universal remote works with my rca tv model l40fhd41


I helped a friend choose this TV at WalMart. Since I know of the remote issues with Directv, etc., I recommended that he get the Philips 6 in 1 Learning remote for $20. The learning part is the key. I believe it is so new that all stores may not have it yet. It is not on the web site. I have used the Philips learning remotes with 100% success. Give it a try, you can always return the remote (but I believe it will work).
