The codes are to program the universal remote control to communicate with the Sony VCR. Try programming the universal remote using one of these: 60000 60032 60033 60035
The acceptance of the cassettes may not be related to the use of a universal remote control. If the URC doesn't have the "equivalent" functionality of the VCR's original remote control, you may not be able to use the URC to perform the functions of the original remote control.
These folks have a broad range of originals which are not cheap but will give you all the features you had originally;
If you want to use a 'universal' remote, you may be disappointed. Before buying one of these, check the mfr.s website with the model number to see if your VCR is included.
All features may not be supported in a 'universal' remote since none of them really are or ever can be.
While a universal remote might be able to do intrinsic functions like menu function, an original is always the best bet. Below are links to the manual and an Ebay auction for an original remote. Give those a try.
You should have no trouble getting a universal remote to work the basic functions: power, tape motion, etc. But you may have problems with advanced functions such as programming or accessing any special features the model may have. Often only the original remote has all the buttons needed. Universal remotes don't usually give complete control. If you're just looking to play tapes, you should be good with any basic universal remote that.
Following the instructions I have been able to program a Philips SRU4105WM/17 universal remote using the first Mitsubishi code from the code list. However, I had to have the universal remote "learn" the vcr/tv button function (I assigned it to the Exit button). Good thing I still have the original Mitsubishi remote:-) I haven't tried having the universal remote learn all the functions, such as Cancel, Counter Reset, Audio Function, Video Function etc. I could see if I'm able to program those, if you'd like. LMK if you have any other questions.
Most late VCRs of the last 10+ years had just basic operating functions with the VCR mounted buttons. Setup of timed recording, and other advanced functions require a remote box, either the manufacturer original, or a universal unit which specifically is able to do advanced. Not all universal units have that capability, so if you go to your local electronics store, check this out carefully.
Manufacturer remotes are available: Look here- http://www.electronicadventure.us/Merchant2/merchant.mv?screen=prod&store_code=EA&product_code=6711R1N051A
Zenith may offer their own universal remotes- again, check them out for the capabilities required.
Im really sorry But theres nothing that can be done, unless you borrow a freinds fisher remote, or see if a local store has one you can borrow. You can purchase one at http://remotes.com, but its probably going to cost at least a good 25 to 45 bucks. Borrow a freinds video machine that does have a remote or a new machine is only 40 bucks these days. sorry to have to deliver the bad news to you.
