    We recently got this TV/VCR combo from my mother in law. Remote has never worked with the TV. TV will not work with CABLE. Being that remote does not work, we cannot use menu to do setup and put TV on channel 3.

No wonder I don't find Emersons anywhere. You can try this , use a TV/AUDIO cable from the back of your cable box to the front inputs. Then use the channel button until you get LINE. You will get TV signal but you still have to turn it ON/OFF manually. Same goes for VOLUME. Good luck.

I bought a rca tv from a hotel closing down it didnt have the remote to it and I cant access all my channels how can I reprogram it with a universal remote

The universal remote will have several possible codes that can be used to work your TV. If the one you have programmed in is not doing the job reprogram another code. If only one code exists then you have a remote that is not fully compatible with your set. Some of the universal have this issue. Some of the RCA set required a dedicated and locked in remote. You would have to contact RCA and tell them your model number and serial number to get another remote. Beware these can get really expensive. I have included a site that you can use to find codes just in case you have lost that little paper that has the codes.

Universal remote for RCA tv channel 1

Something missing here. There is no channel 1 on a TV set. None of the universal remote instructions I have or have seen specify that as a first step. From your post, I believe you want to use some kind of universal remote to control an RCA flat panel TV, Can you tell me the brand of universal remote you are trying to use? The answer to the last line of your post is you don't need the original remote to "reprogram". That's what universal remotes do

My RCA Universal remote is not working (will not turn the TV on or off). There is no poroblem with the battery.

The remote may have lost the code for the TV. Reprogram the remote.

I hope this helps.

(I had a universal remote that would lose the program code due to the program button being pressed when the remote was picked up or put down.)

VCR stuck on menu screen

Thank you. I did fix the problem. Reviewed the instruction manual for the Samsung VCR and removed the SAFE reading on the VCR by just holding down the TV-VCR button on the RCA universal remote for several seconds which then released the frozen menu screen. From there I was able to reprogram the TV using the instructions and codes for the RCA universal remote. I still have to reprogram the VCR.
