Hi bubba.

The keypad contacts in the remote will be contaminated I can talk you through fixing it. you will need

  1. a med thin guitar plectrum(pic)
  2. methylated spirits
  3. lint free cloth(tea towel will do).
Now I will take you through opening and cleaning the remote keypad.
  1. remove the batteries and clip om cover
  2. slip the guitar pic under the edge of the remote.
  3. run it around whilst gently levering the cases apart
  4. it will open with some patient effort and then pretty much fall to pieces
  5. clean the pcb/contact board with the cloth moistened with metho
  6. clean the button silicon rubber contact pads.
  7. be sure that no bits of lint or residue are left on either the pcb or the contact rubbers.
  8. let dry for 15 mins to be sure no condensate moisture or metho is left on boards or button assly
  9. reassemble by layering parts and clip together
  10. reinsert batteries and test
This process will cure most dodgy button problems. If they are still not good, then a new rubber contact sheet may need to be fitted. In the case of universal remotes, cost will probably dictate buying a new one anyway. Good luck and go FixYa!!

regards
Graeme

  1. Manually turn ON your device (TV, VCR, Cable Box)
  2. Press and "HOLD" CODE SEARCH
  3. Press and release the device button you want to set up (TV, VCR, Cable Box) However, if you are using AUX for a device, press and release AUX first and then the device button for the type of device to be programmed (TV, VCR, or Cable). The selected device button will flash once.
  4. Release CODE SEARCH.
  5. Press OFF/ON repeatedly until the device turns off (you may have to press up to 100 times at a rate of once per second).
  6. Once the device turns off, press and release ENTER.
  7. With the device on, press any other button. If the device responds, no further programming is required. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 1-6.

Tv on/off and volumn don't work on my dish remote


Hello,

If you are trying to use a Dish Network remote control, then you are probably out of luck. Most Dish remotes do not have remote codes for TV/DVD or TV/VCR combos. There are just too many codes out there to put into one remote control. I'm sure they tried to walk you through a code search (hold the TV button down, etc.), so if it didn't show up then, then you are probably stuck with using two remotes or adjusting manually.

If they didn't try a code search, then try this:

Turn the TV on manually. Then, press and hold the clear TV button at the top until all the buttons at the top turn red, then release. Press and release the TV power button (the smaller red power button), and press the channel up button. Repeatedly press and release the channel up button about once a second until the TV turns off by itself, then press and release the # button at the bottom right hand corner of the remote, and the TV button will flash 3 times, confirming that it took the code. Press and release the clear SAT button at the top left, and then you should be good to go.
If the TV never turns off during the code search, and the TV button at the top of the remote flashes a bunch of times everytime you press channel up, then there are no more remote codes. The remote does not have the code for your TV.

Hope this helps you.

Lost remote mrd 310


most universals will use this method.

Great News!! We can program most Philips Universal Remotes with Automatic Code Searh. Here's how it works on most of our remotes.

Programming with Code Search

1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.

2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.

3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.

4. Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.

The above assumes that you want to store the VCR you want under the VCR but, Cable codes under the CBL, etc

Note: if the device does not have a chat channel at a button, you should Play (VCR only) or Power instead.

Here is a Code List on PDF that shoud be universal for most remotes. It worked for me.

Hope this helps you out, good luck.

Hello Jason
Thank you for choosing FixYa.com for your answer my name is David
I have searched myself and you are right its a hard code to find But i did find
one thing that just might work for you that is doing a code search on your remote

  2. Press and hold code search until the LED lights up.

  4. Press and release the component button you wish to program. When this is done the indicator light for that component will blink and then remain steadily lit.

RCA remote help


I GOT THIS FROM THE RCA WEBSITE...IT WORKED FOR ME...THE CRUCIAL STEP IS TO KEEP PRESSING THE REVERSE BUTTON!!! MY REMOTE WAS THE RCA RCR312W
  1. TURN ON THE COMPONENT (THE TV, DVD, ETC)
  2. HOLD THE TV (OR DVD) BUTTON AND THE ON/OFF BUTTON AT THE SAME TIME.  IT WILL STAY LIT.
  3. PRESS THE PLAY BUTTON EVERY FIVE SECONDS until the component turns off.
  4. Each time the Play button is pressed, the illuminated ON-OFF button blinks ten times and a block of 10 codes is sent to your component. This process continues until all the codes in the Code Lists have been searched. If the component has not turned off after all codes have been searched, the illuminated ON-OFF button blinks four times, turns off, and the Auto Code Search Entry method is exited. 
  5. When the component turns off, press and release the REVERSE button, then wait two seconds to see if the component turns on again.
  6. If the component does not respond, continue to press the REVERSE button EVERY TWO SECONDS until the component turns on again. This will isolate the correct code in the last block of codes sent. Each time the REVERSE button is pressed, the illuminated ON-OFF button blinks.
  7. If the REVERSE button is accidentally pressed after the component responds, press and release the FORWARD button. Wait two seconds to see if the component turns off again.
  8. To save the new code, press and release the STOP button.
  9. The illuminated ON-OFF button turns off. You must press the STOP button to save the code.
