Re: Remote Programs To TV, But Buttons Are Not Working...
Program the remote with the code/codes provided by the remotes manufacturer until you find the one that gives you the functions that you desire, or you could look for the OEM remote from the manufacturer of the TV or on an auction site. A lot of times the universals won't perform all the functions that the original one does. Good Luck.

This remote control have no setup codes to Electrohome TV. If you wish to get more codes and other details check: http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/ It has setup code list, and setup procedure to many popular brand remote controls. View the site in 'Mosaic'. It will make search easy. If you wish to buy a genuine remote control, you have to contact the authorized service center. If you wish to buy a universal remote control, you should know about, which brand remote control have set-up codes to your TV brand, and buy that one according to availability.
Me thinks IF you tried the 'code search' function and none worked, I sincerely doubt if anyother 'codes' will marry your Philips Remote to your electrohome TV.
This is because your "SEARCH" effort already went through ALL of the possible codes THAT Philips Remote knows andcan deliver. It is also possible that a different MODEL of Philips Remote MAY stumble on codes that DO work!
IF you have a 'original' remote, SOME NEWER remotes can LEARN the proper codes from the original remote! BUT you NEED that original remote to send the desired IR data pulses to the smart student remote.
And GOD ~ those TV's are SO OLD, did they even HAVE remotes??
I HAVEN'T QUITE SOLVED IT YET,BUT I DID REALIZE THAT WHEN I AM UP CLOSE TO THE RECEIVER THE REMOTE WORKS, BUT AS I GO FURTHER AWAY FROM IT, IT SEEMS THAT THE TV INTER FEARS WITH IT. SO I AM NOT SURE WHAT TO DO.
3rd Party Universal Remote when trying to "scan" for correct codes inadvertently activates a diagnostics setting on the TV set.
The word "FACTORY" appears on the upper left quadrant of the screen in RED letters & suddenly all controls are "Locked Out." Television will not respond to button presses on original remote or on it's built-in-buttons on the side panel. All settings/options are "Locked Out" & the TV can only be shut OFF by physically unplugging it. Additionally, when the TV is plugged back in, it is still in the "ON" state & remains in "Locked Out" state.
The Solution: (thanks to a couple of hard-working Support Personnel at NESA)
Plug TV back into power source. Wait until it powers up and the word "FACTORY" is visible on-screen.
Press 6-4-8-3 on the TV's ORIGINAL IR remote device.
You are now in the diagnostic settings Sub-Menu, & the word "ADJUST" will be on the screen.
Press "MENU" on your TV's ORIGINAL IR remote device.
The TV is now back to it's former fully-functioning state.
