Opening the case of a JVC Remote Control

I have an RM-C742 Remote control for my AV27750 JVC TV. This Remote sends all codes correctly except the channel up and down, the volume up and down and the power on and off. Because these were the most frequently used switches on the remote, I believe they need cleaning or burnishing, but I can't open the case of the Remote Control.

Can you tell me how to open the case of the JVC RM-C742 Remote Control?

Re: Opening the case of a JVC Remote Control

Not having seen that particular one, remote cases usually have a couple screws under the battery to lock the case together and then a number of plastic tabs around the perimiter that hold the joint closed. find the screws (sometimes they hide them under labels) - I don't know what it is about screws that manufacturers don't like to show. Either think they are not cosmetic or don't want us take-it-apart maniacs to get in. Anyway, get the screws loose then (this is the hard part) carefully pry open the case joint, feeling where and how the tabs snap out and then be careful not to have everything inside go flying when the last one lets loose. Almost impossible to not leave little gouge marks in the joint.
Hope Ya Fis It!

I accidently locked my TV. I have no idea what the code is. When I switch on the TV there is a blue screen with lock written on it. The remote control is CHUNGHOP RM-441e Universal PLZ do help. The Whole...

You can unlock the FPA lock of your RCA TV. But, you must ahve its original remote control to perform the proceedings. if you haven't it original remote cntrol with you now, just try to buy a new one, of just borrow it from any of your friends or relatives who owns the same model Tv.

Most RCA TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.

1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked

3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.
One amoung the above process will surely unlock your RCA TV. OK.

There. Is a channel lock on my tv. So I can't change the channels. How do I take it off?? Help!

you have to unlock your jvc set, and reset the V-Chip settings. There are two ways to unlock JVC TVs, you have to find out which proceedings frome below mentioned will work with your TV.


Press the "Menu" button to set the lock code for your JVC TV. A padlock icon will appear on the menu display.

Press "Zero" to access the lock code function then use the left and right arrows to select the four-digit number for your code. Use the up and down arrows to move to the next area of the display.

Select the up or down arrow to finish your lock code then use the left or right arrow to save your lock code settings and exit the menu. You can return to this display if you forget your four-digit lock code and set another code.

Write your four-digit lock code down and keep it in a safe, private area.

Select the locked TV channel you desire to watch or want to unlock. A message will appear on the display requesting you to enter your lock code to unlock the channel.

Unlock your JVC TV by entering your lock code on the 10-key pad. The message "Invalid Lock Code!" will appear on the screen if you enter the wrong lock code.

Select "TV" from the menu then select "V-Chip" from the drop-down list on the screen. "Please Input Password" will appear on the screen.

Enter your four-digit password by selecting numbers on the 10-pad that appears on the V-Chip menu display or your remote control. Create a new password if you forget it by unplugging your TV power cord from the outlet then reconnect the power cord. This procedure resets your password to "0000." Enter four numbers for your new password using the keypad on the screen or your remote and select the arrow to advance to the next number. Press "OK" on your remote or select "OK" on the screen to set your new password.
Unlock a TV rating or TV channel by selecting "MPAA" or "TVPG" from the V-Chip menu. Use the up or down arrows to select the locked rating then select "OK" on the display or press the "OK" button on your remote control to unlock it. The MPAA represents the U.S. Motion Picture Association of America rating system, such as "NC-17," meaning not intended for viewers 17 years or younger. TVPG provides you

My t.v changes single the channels, if I am seeing a channel the minute changes to another one

Just a word of thought. Make sure your remote control is not pointing at the TV. Ive seen this many times. A faulty remote control sending out random signals to the TV due to fluid spillage in the remote. Try keeping the remote well away from TV and see if it still changes channels. If not, check the channel up and down buttons on your TV. Do they feel faulty when compared with volume buttons etc? If so, you might have a channel button on the TV that is half stuck in. Hope this helps :)

I was able to program my Comcast remote to control the volume of my tv, but was unable to get it to change channels. Is there something else that I should do?

Controlling the TV power and volume is probably all you'll be able to do with that control. The Comcast remotes are meant to be used with their converter boxes, and normally people want to change channels on the box while the TV stays on the box output channel (usually 3, sometimes 4). The remote's channel up and down buttons and number keypad only send out the codes recognized by the converter box. You'll need to fall back to the TV remote if you want to control more than power and volume.

Reprograming my tv remote

Hi chevry,
universal remotes vary with respect to button options. For a Sanyo TV you can try these codes. (This is manual mode).
0098, 0066, 0091, 0023, 0017, 0027, 0080.
Press the TV button on the remote. Than press & hold the set button until the LED stays on. Enter the four-digit code. When the remote control recognizes the correct code the LED will turn off. If the code is not correct the LED will flash several times & stay lit. Enter the next code. (You'll have less than 25 seconds to try another code) or the remote will exit the programming mode.
How to use the auto search. (One code at a time). This will take some time.
Turn on the TV. Press & hold the set button until the LED comes on, point the remote at the TV & press the volume + once (This moves the remote through 1 code at a time. Continue to press the volume + (Do not do this very fast or you'll miss the correct code), until the TV turns off or changes channel. Than press the set button again & the LED will go off. The remote should now be programmed for the TV. Test TV by turning the on/off button on remote. Check volume up & down.

Good Luck!
