Question about RCA L26WD26D 26 in. LCD TV

Can't control DVD functions from remote

I bought this TV without remote (demo). It works fine and using any universal remote, I can control everything but the DVD functions (play, pause, etc.). Currently trying from Logitech Harmony 550. I'm beginning to wonder if TV itself is broken with respect to remote functionality in DVD mode, but tend to dismiss because every other function (including menus in DVD mode) work. I can manually control DVD functions from the TV itself. On a side note, even though this model is still sold at Walmart, RCA maintains the remote is no longer being produced, so I can't find a replacement original remote... Thanks in advance, Fred

    Same problem. I bought a display model from Wal-Mart, with no remote, and can,t find one that will control all aspects of T. V.. Love the T.V. but sure am frustrated at RCA.

    OK - I should have read this forum yesterday....I bought this model today - a floor model at walmart for $260...couldn't pass it up even though there was no remote nor any manual - I can get the manual online.



    But I haven't been able to get this TV working with the DirecTV universal remote. (a bit frustrated).

    Exact same problem here too.

  • Anonymous Sep 18, 2008

    Maybe not the same problem, but similar: My TV occasionally gets stuck on the DVD screen, (when I'm not even watching a DVD), and will not respond to remote nor buttons on the top of the set. I have to unplug the monitor, and then it "awakens."

My Emerson LD195emx TV is in service mode and I cannot get it out. I do not have the original remote for it, so I bought a universal remote, but I can't get it to work.


Just visit the site linked here. You can get more details. Without its remote control, you can't release the factory mode. just try by pressing the 'Power' button on the remote control; once. Sometimes it might help you. If not, buy its original remote control and make it as a service remote control to proceed. Just follow the instructions at this site. With a universal remote control; you can't do anything related to service mode functions.

If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.

How to play dvd


If you are using the built-in DVD tray, press TV (in case you have a Cable Set-top box). Then press Input and navigate with the up/down keys to the line labeled DVD. Then press OK. Finally press play on the Polaroid TDA-03211C remote or on the side of the TV. The remote play button is in the center of the row below the row with skip reverse and skip forward buttons.

If you are using a different DVD player, press the input button and then the up/down arrows to get to the input for your DVD player. Then press the DVD button to control the DVD player.

If you are using a universal remote control, then you may need to program it to the TV and the DVD player separately. (Some universal remotes may only support the TV functions of this TV.) Make sure that your universal remote has an input button that works. You may need to try multiple codes for Polaroid TVs.

I hope this helps.

(note: the DVD must be correctly installed so that the printed side (label) is facing the front of the TV. If you do not get a response, try the disc in another DVD player. The DVD player laser tracking can fail without warning. If the disc plays in other units, this may be the problem.)

Plasm tv remote control will not work have put in new batteries to no avail the tv works fine without the remote it,s just annoying to keep having to get up to changs stations


Remote issues and answers:

If you are using a "universal" remote do not expect it to if it evenprograms to have all the functions you need or had with the"original" remote.

If you are searching for codes for a universal to program it: GOOGLE the modelnumber of the remote for "codes" or if you do not have the ownermanual GOOGLE the model number of the remote for "manual".

Some remotes have a search feature that allows you to try all codes on at atime.

Universal remotes are far from UNIVERSAL.

If you have a remote that does not work at all--have it tested first: a remotetester is used at many electronic repair centers and places like Radio Shack for example.

Point remote at the tester and press any button and a strip or light willflash----some digital cameras will also react on display screen to this.

If dead check the battery/s and the connections where they go and if only somebuttons have to be pressed hard the unit may have had something spilled on it:it can be taken apart and cleaned in a proper way to resolve this.

If it has been dropped it can also be taken apart to see if the infrared LED/sat its sending end have come loose from the circuit board inside the remote.

Lastly is the best argument for an original remote is on many sets even if itprograms it will just not have all the needed functions the original one had.

Many companies especially on units with DVD OR VCR built in change the codewith each model and or year as most of these are not actually made by thecompany whose name is on the unit.

Let me know if you have further questions and I will try to help.

Lost a tv remote in a fire. Bought a universal remote but cannot fine a code to program it.


read the directions at the part where it says manually program, you have to do certian functions then push the channel up and down until tv responds then its programmed, this is actually finding the code as you go, instructions will explain it all because ech universal is just a little diff in its manual process.

Sometimes these universal remotes will not do every function on your set . Best thing to do would be to take universal back and go to www.replacementremotes.com to get the exact remote . You'll never have to worry about recoding your remote. Good luck

Need code for universal remote Sylvania LC320SL8


We bought a Sylvania LC420ss8 HDTV.

Our current universal remotes would not work, I followed the advice on this site and got a Sony
RM- VL600 Sony Untergrated Remote Commander, use page 16 in the manual to teach the new remote off of the remote that came with the TV. It really works. I am happy with the tv and remote.
