Cannot find eject button or what to use to eject DVD from bauhn atv-32hdc1n. Lost the manual first time to use DVD and now cannot get it out. Hope you can help

On page v of the manual (if you had one), under the heading "DVD Mode", the first item in the list is an up-arrow symbol, with "Press to eject the disc" next to it.

That's simple enough, IF you have a user guide. But if you don't, and you weren't familiar with standard symbology for these types of buttons, you would be stumped by the moronic design of the remote control.

The up-arrow button is on the top row of the Remote Control buttons, next to the red Standby button. It's a standard Eject symbol, but not only did they just assume you'd know that, they obfuscated the situation further by marking it as "TV/Radio". So if you weren't familiar with the symbology, you certainly wouldn't be looking for something marked TV/Radio to eject a DVD.

But there's another catch: The up-arrow/eject button will only work if your Source is set to DVD. If for any reason you switched away from the DVD before wanting to eject it, you would find that the Eject button no longer works. You have to switch back to Source = DVD, then press the eject button.

IMO, there is no excuse for a Remote Control design that can't be figured out without the manual.

Non-tech old lady here. I have 5 remotes, one for each bedroom, & recent guests have been meddling with them & I don't have a clue what I should do. I want them on a/c, which symbol is that?

You can find the manual for your systems here. You can either print it out or look at it in the webpage. If you go to page 4, you should see a diagram of your remote control. You are looking for buttons 17 and 20. One has a little temperature picture with an arrow up and an arrow down, that will raise or lower your temperature. Button 20 is on the bottom right of your remote, which will change your mode (fan, AC, Auto, Heat, etc). Press 20 until you see an A on the display, which symbolizes "Auto" mode, then change the desired temperature with 17 until it's at the level you want.

If this isn't the proper manual for your system, could you please find the model number and post back with that? It makes it a little easier to find. The model number should be located on the unit itself somewhere, or possibly on the outside part of it.

I have an RCA tv and have lost the codes

Howdy, according to the manual, that remote comes preprogrammed to run your RCA television. There are no codes listed in their database, but here is the entire(very brief) manual:

If yo uare not familliar with PDF files, you will want to find the little + symbol in order to read the file without a magnifying glass.
Hope this gets you back in business.
