Question about RCA L26WD26D 26 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

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.

    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."

    I do not have the remote for model CD130MW8 and cannot arrow up or down to play or advance the DVD to lesson or section or workout 2, 3 or 4 etc.

Your remote is universal, so it probably has a code search function you can use to find a suitable code for your TV. If you search through all available codes stored in the remote without success, you may have to try another universal remote.

The remote doesn't work for any of the DVD functions.

1 replace the old batteries use new ones alkalines with the same mark and polarities.
2) clean the contacts batteries with c. cleaner.
3) open the remote control, and clean the keypads from dirty, oxide, corrosion, with c. cleaner.
4 Proceed again, if the problem persist, you must go to the repair shop TV or replace by new ones.
God bless you

Zenith B27A11Z 27" TV, can't get into menu, original remote gone

Most universal or multi-brand remotes will control a TV's basic functions, but almost none will support advanced functions like menus. If the TV doesn't have a front panel menu button, the best solution is to buy a universal remote of the same brand as the TV. If you get a Zenith universal remote, it should have a menu button that will work with the TV.

Samsung DVD set up using Philips Universal remote SRU 5030/86

To get all the functions you need, a universal remote will not do - you need to get the OEM remote for the unit OR a remote for another unit manufactured around the same time since they usually employ similar frequencies and have similar functions.
