I assume you had new batteries in the original remote and that the Universal remote was programmed correctly for your TV.

Are there any lights on the old remote that flash when you press a button? If so, does it light?

If the TV doesn't respond to a remote, and the remote is verified to be in working order, then the infrared sensor in the TV is defective amd needs replaced.

Good Luck,
- Jim

I bought a small sansui tv from walmart, but cannot find out the code to program my Dish network remote to work with it. My Dish book is older and only lists one code (which doesn't work)

I most certainly hope that after all this time, you were able to program your remote! But if you have any questions, haven't gotten it working, or have another tv and remote that you would like to program, I am here to help! The link below is a link to instructions for a power scan. The scan scans all of the codes on the tv until it finds the right one for the remote. It sounds tedious, but it is a quick and simple way to get that remote programmed to the tv. This scan works for every DISH remote, and you can use it on any tv, so if you have a tv in the future that you want to program with the DISH, this will help! It's a very handy thing to know!!!!

Using a Jensen remote, can't access input mode

turn on your tv, press and hold tv button, then the on/off button, it will light up then press the power button.and it turns off....hold. After holding down both for buttons for 3 secs the light on the on/off key turns back on. Release both keys and the light should stay on. Now hit the On/off button repeatedly until the tv turns off, when it does hit the stop button to save code.
