I can help you troubleshoot your TV.
I am having a little difficulty sourcing information about your model though, is it possible I haven't got the make and model correct?

You are having trouble with a Citizen brand, model JCTV 32428 or maybe 3242A?

And just so I understand your problem clearly, you have the remote for the TV, and no cable box is involved, but the TV itself wont let you into its on TV cable tv setup menus? Is it the case that you would like your TV to autotune your cable TV channels, because you cant access them? Even when you simply enter a number like 31 in?

(Because sometime TVs make you choose between an input source being Antenna or Cable, and if you choose Antenna, you are stuck with a limited amount of channels, even though the cable carries so many more.)

Regarding closed captioning, are you also looking to have the audio from programs written on the screen with the closed captioning system? Or did you mention these button to help me identify your set?

Please forgive my many qualifying questions; I would only like to understand fully.

Also, even if I can't identify your exact set and provide a manual for you, I can recommend to you that in my experience, when a TV wont let me access cable channels and options, it is because somewhere in the setup I have selected Antenna as an input source. This is the only restrictive selection I can think of, given what I know of your problem so far.

I hope that helps; do post back if I have my model numbers incorrect.

I am trying to program my universal remote control for a citizen tv model no JCTV3242A


Hell, depending on the brand and model of your universal remote, there are two procedures to program it to work with your citizen TV, first the direct code procedure(list of codes included in the owners manual) or the code scan procedure consisting of pressing certain keys on your remote untill the code that programs your citizen TV is obtained. I suggest going into the website provided by the manufacturer of your remote to obtain both procedures.

You would need to look up how to program that remote to your specific tv. I would look up the owners manual if you dont have it for the remote...and follow the instructions for it. However, you will have to directly use the tv to program it to the cable. The universal remote will only change the channels and volume for you. Use your menu button to bring it up, make sure its set to cable and not antenna, and use your channel + and - to navigate through the menu and vol + to select your option

Code for RCA remode


This is all I could find.

Programming Your RCA Universal Remote.

The RCA universal remote may already be set up to operate your brand of TV, VCR, or Cable Box. It is pre-programmed with following codes: TV-000, VCR-000, Cable Box-000, and AUX is programmed with VCR code 037. For brands that require programming, there are two ways to program: Using Code Lists or Code Search. Use Code Search if the code lists are not available or if the codes from the lists do not operate a device.

Programming a Device using Code Search: 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.

Programming a device using the Code Lists: 1- Find codes for each device and brand below. 2- Press and "HOLD" CODE SEARCH. 3- Press and release the TV, VCR or Cable button you want to set up. If programming AUX for a device, press and release AUX first and then the device to be programmed (TV, VCR or Cable). When the selected device button flashes proceed to the next step. 4- Enter the three digit code from the TV, VCR or Cable Box code lists. 5- Release CODE SEARCH. 6- With the device on, press another button, for example CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 1-5 using another code number from the lists.

The universal remote does not bring up the menu so I can program all the cable channels in it. I don't know what to do. It is only receiving non cable channels. Help me so I don't have to keep watching...


alot of universal remotes dont let you program your tv with them due to how much more mem they would need. you have to use your actual tv remote or do it manually with the tv. sorry
