I solved the problem by unpluging the main power sourse and repluging. Evidently recyclining the unit! Thanks for your answer even though you were trying to get me to purchase a program! ds

My son some how used the universal remote to set the pass word on the V-chip controls. Now I am locked out and cant get any channels.


Most RCA and GE 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.
  4. 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.

I bought a used GE TV at a resale shop. It didn't have a remote with it though. I bought a universal remote and it doesn't work for it either. The universal remote does work on another tv in the house...


i would buy an GE Universal Remote. Any GE Universal Remote will work with any GE TV's. Just like a Magnavox Universal Remote will work with Magnavox without programming it.

Hi, I have a Magnavox #CD130MW9. It was working great until I sat the remote and the pictures zoomed in. There is no zoom button on the TV or remote. I've lost about 2'' of the picture (forheads/ top of...


Your set has a built in DVD player, which has a Zoom Function. Look on the remote for a button that says Aspect Ratio, or 4:3, or 16:9 or something in the dvd button area. If all else fails, try this; Press every button one at a time (the ones you are'nt sure of what they do) until you see a change in the screen size. If this doesn't work, you might unplug it and replug it in (electric that is) if nothing, leave it unplugged overnight to clear all settings. **Beware, if you have had to set-up this tv unplugging it overnight will cause you to have to do all that again, so its a last resort fix**

Find the codes andm menue for remote uRC3605B00 remote control


http://www.hifi-remote.com/ofa/codes-tv.shtml#tv

If none of the codes work then we have two other solutions:

1. Searching For Your Code

If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment ,or yourbrand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, trythe following procedure to search for your code.
If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when youreach the end of all the codes for this device type.
  1. PRESS the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), then RELEASE.
  2. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
  3. ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
  4. ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
    Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.
  5. When your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in the code for your device.

2. Learn the buttons from the original

Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing thefollowing steps.
  1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
  2. PRESS 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.
  3. PRESS the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function. The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.
  4. PRESS the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash rapidly.
  5. PRESS the button on the original remote to be learned.

Now you can repeat steps 3 through 5 to learn other functions onto other keysor press and hold SETUP until the Cinema's red light flashes twice to lock inyour new feature. (If the red light does not blink twice, stop and repeat stepsthrough 6).
To test the new feature, press and release the device key in which the newfeature was learned followed by the key on which the feature was learned

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions,please feel free to post them here.
Television Video - DVD Audio Satellite Set Top Box Video - VCR Brand: Model (optional): clip_image001.gifclip_image001.gifWe could not find an exact match, we think this code will work. 10054 clip_image001.gifclip_image001.gifSetup Instructions
· Set the "Mode Switch" to TV.
· Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button until the visible LED blinks twice.
· Enter the 5 digit Code above.
· Try your new code and tell us how it worked!
You'll have to settle for that, use the middle power key in the tv device to power on & off the tv.


hope this may help;

You need the original remote for that. Try "remote controls.com" and I believe they should have one. If not, let me know.

Universal Remote Code for Dynex 20" TV/DVD


I just bought a 32" dynex lcd and saw that i couldn't program my two $5 ge remotes to work it. From reading in this forum and others I'm not the only one with the problem, I thought I was stuck with only the dynex remote. But the dynex website tells you how to get universal remotes to work,
It tells you to try the codes for Orion, Emerson, Memorex, Sansui, Sylvania, Zenith. The second orion code worked for me. both my ge remotes look and work the same but one uses a four digit code and the other uses a three digit code. I used 0135 on one and 135 on the other. There is a good chance that if you try the codes for the brands dynex lists you will find one that works. The 0135 or 135 might work for most dynex tv's.
If you have a ge remote and haven't programmed it for volume punch through you might try it. It allows the tv volume to be controlled using the ge remote even when it's set to something other than tv.

Is there no buttons on the set to adjust the volume??? I've never seen a tv that didnt have at least under a door somewhere. Do you have an owners manual? You can get a universal remote to get this to work Good Luck!
