Question about Sony RM-U185 Remote Control

Remote control won't work with cable channels

Hello!

My problem with the remote control is that it cannot detect the cable channels when going up and down the channels. You have to key in the number for the cable channel (ex. CNN key in 48).

What do I do?
I even bought a universal remote to solve but when I coded it, it did the same exact thing!

Sounds like the TV needs to be re-set thru the menu by auto-detecting the channels and remembering them.

What kind of tv do you have?

Philips 19PS50S122 TV does not respond to remote control


Hello,
Please check your batteries in the tv remote as they appear to be weak or dead. You will need to find the cable remote's paper guide in order to properly program the cable remote so it can change channels, volume, and power functions on the tv set.
Good Luck!

The channels on my remote won't work


If all other functions works, except channel buttons, your remote control need cleaning. Check the site liked here for more details about how to clean a remote control. Pull up older posts there. Do a search by entering the brand name to your device by its search box at top right of the display window, because, posts are not arranged in alphabetical order, but by brand name first.

I lost my remote and can't change the channel on the control panel. It is on channel 02 and it won't change even when I hit the channel+ or channel- button.


Hello.

Your problem is stuck keys in your T.V. It usually just needs cleaning, BUT it is hard to clean, because you gonna have to open up the whole TV. I advice you just buy a new remote from JVC or just buy a "Universal Remote".

Goodmorning, bought a zenith tv didn't get the remote. Wonndering how i can programme it using just the buttons on the tv. How do i get the menus up. it only catches threes channels as of now.


Hello
There are two types Zenith TVs. One type will have "Menu" button on its front panel and other will not. If your Zenith is the first type, you can programme it without a remote control. If it is the second type, you must have a remote control hanset to programme it.
Programming method
First connect the TVs antenna socket at its back with external antenna or cable.

* With the remote control in hand, press the POWER key to
turn on the Presentation TV.
** Press MENU repeatedly until the Setup menu appears.

*** Using the Up/Down arrow on the remote control, highlight
Auto Program on the screen

**** Press the Right or Left arrow to go to the Auto Program
menu.

***** Using the Up/Down arrow, choose either Cable TV or Off-
Air Antenna on the screen.
****** Press the Right or Left arrow to begin the Channel Search.
******* Press ENTER when the channel search is done.

Note: Auto Program finds channels being received by the TV
tuner
Cable will not work unless you subscribe to a cable service
OK.

I have a visco TV and I cannot get it off of channel 1. The remote does not work so I bought a universal remote but it still won't work. I tried to codes for NEC and Polariod as suggested by others,...


There should be channel buttons on the TV itself, try using those. Also, you may want to try changing the input from the Cable Box. 
I am curious as to why the remotes don't work. Also, how did it get onto channel one. Did you get the TV used?
Here is a link to the AV Science Forum. It seems other people have challenges with this TV as well.

I want to go to channel 3 so i can go on cable , but the remote doesnt let me !


Hello; All TV's made in the last 20 years are computer controlled. The TV wants you to do a "scan ", so it can MEMORIZE all active channels. IF you are connecting your set to a cable BOX or OTHER, the set can only SEE the Channel 3 output from the boxes. No scan will work when doing this! In this case don't expect to be able to use the channel UP or Down keys on the set or remote, because the set does not know any channels due to no memory of a scan. You can, however key in the channel # and the set should go to that channel, unless the set is defective. John
