Re: memorex mt2024 "A"
if your universal remote control only works the off and on, you need to try another code besides that your using right now. if it helps, you can try doing some codes and turning off the tv. this usually only happens when your tv is not readily working as fast as it should be and you should give it some time for the remote and tv to synchronize. again, have patience and just try and try.

If no one answers on that model TV (so many models), see following: All the digital TV's have a "search channels" function from a menu button either on remote or on front of TV. See if menu has something like "Setup" and "Auto Tuning" (or words like that) which indicates a digital TV, if no channel search likely analog TV. Once clicking to search for channels (arrow buttons to get there and enter button to start, or some other buttons I saw once did that), it scans the airwaves starting with Ch2 and ending with ch 78 or so. Takes about 30 seconds for it to find channels with antenna connected. Antenna can be old UHF antenna. Search completed, the TV can show the channels in normal channel viewing. If not a digital TV, you can get a DTV converter box to get free tv off the air, it is basically a digital TV tuner that works on analog TV's. You can get those on Ebay.
To unlock all its locked functions, you must have its original remote control A universal remote control won't go. Try to get its original one. Don't waste more money by buying a universal remote control.
Try these: 0004, 0009, 0049, 0051, 0135, 0031, 0000, 1007, 0268, 0310, 0001 and 0394. Good luck! I just a universal remote control from Walmart for $4.94. It has an "auto-search" for codes and took a couple of minutes to identify the code for my TV. Aloha!
The most inexpensive solution, is to buy a universal remote. I own a One-for-All universal remote (model URC-4220) which works with Memorex TVs. I bought it at Walmart for less than 10 dollars.
If you want to pay a little more money, here are a few websites to visit: REMOTES.COM 1-800-REMOTES
You can find a few more websites by typing in:
MEMOREX TV REMOTES into the Google searchbox.
Hope these suggestions help you out. Please take a moment to rate the info I have provided, but using the rating system below. Thanks.
THE ONLY SOLUTION IS TO ORDER A REMOTE FROM MEMOREX. I HAVE TRIED FOUR DIFFERENT UNIVERSAL REMOTES AND CONTACTED THE MFGS HELP-LINES WITH ZERO SUCCESS. I FINALLY GOT SOMEONE AT MEMOREX TO ADMIT THAT THEIR REMOTE IS THE ONLY ONE THAT WILL WORK ON THIS (MT2024) SET. "$88.OO".--- WHAT A DEAL FOR A NEW TV! IF YOU BREAK OR LOSE THE REMOTE, THE FRUSTRATION QUICKLY BUILDS AND ADDS UP TO MORE THAN $88.00
I see I'm not the only one with the same problem. There is another post with a date in December 2006, and mine started having the same problem in late December. Similar issue: It won't turn on using the remote or power button. If I unplug it from power and then plug it back in, it comes on, showing one channel (ch 6). It won't respond to any control on the TV itself, and if I press any button on the remote it immediately turns off. If I then press any button on the remote, it sounds like it will turn on, and the power light goes green, but after about 2 seconds, it powers down, without getting any picture. I suppose I can just leave it on channel 6, without making any other changes. I submitted a request for assistance on the Memorex website, but I'm not expecting anything from them. It's out of warranty.
