Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have a GFM television, Model VO7LCD20. I cannot find a remote code that will work with my Comcast remote. The search came back with 11963...this does not work. Comcast suggested 10171, 11665,11864... these do not work either.

    Sorry, I tried that also.By the way the remote does work as it does control the cable box. It just will not control the TV.

Hi,

Before we proceed, i would like to share some Details.

Universal Remotes are NOT Universal in Real World. They could Operate a Set of Brands for which they were programmed. You might have seen when Universal Remotes were introduced , there were 3 Digit Code, then there were 4 digit Codes and then 5 Digit Codes. I could tell you many Brands are still not covered by these Remotes.

If you have the User Manual for the Remote,Check the Code List. If this Brand is NOT LISTED, this Clearly indicates that this Universal Remote was Never meant to Handle this Brand.

You never mention the Model Number of the Remote unless i should have checked the same for you.

There are Few Questions that ONLY Comcast could Answer :-

1. If this Brand is not Under the Code List for this Remote, How they Referred these Codes?

2. Have you tried Manual Search Option? It would ONLY work, if the Brand is Listed under the Remote Model Database and the Codes are not Working.

Note - If the Brand is not Listed, all the efforts would remain in vein. In the end, you need to Opt for a Universal Code that have this Brand under their Database.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    No the GFM remote was not listed in the printed user guide. However Comcast listed 5 codes on their web-site, one of which seemed to be valid when I used the code check function of the remote. When I tried it and the others they did not work. What I was hoping for when I subscribed to this service was some expertise in finding out from GFM (Meijer) just what are their code(s) is(are) and do they work on Comcast remote controls.

    Thanks for your response!!

    Well, it could be really tough to Find Someone Working In GFM.However, you would Find Experts who are Actually working and Repairing these Sets from many Years. I have seen many Questions in the Past like you mentioned. I know, it's frustrating, but that's why we always Refer to Check User Guide before buying any Universal Remote.You would agree, that if all Universal Remotes cannot be Compatible with all the Sets.

    There could be 100's of Codes. The codes that you saw on Comcast Website, is that an Official One's or Posted by any User?

    If that's an Official One, only Comcast would be able to answer. If the Remote is Compatible with this Set and Code is given on their Website, ( Officially ), it has to be in the Manual.

    On the other hand, User Posted Codes could be many. Most of the Forums, now a days would offer Incorrect Information rather than the Truth which has to be shared.

    Even if you get hold of someone who is in GFM, still he would not be able to help as it the Comcast Remote. There are plenty of Universal Remotes ( i could say Bunch, wait for few years, China already introduced a lot of Stylish Waste Stuff ) - he could only advise you to speak to Comcast. This is a Vicious Circle. That's what i initially mentioned, if the Code is not in the List, it's all about running for things that does not exist.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks
    for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!


    However, there is nothing wrong in trying Different Codes. You never know, which one might Fit .On the basis of the search, i would start offering you codes and you could revert regarding the success and the failure ( It is only hit and trial method )

    Most widely mentioned Code - 10030

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks
    for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

What you want to do is look in the user guide for a manual entry method it usually involves turning on the device you want programmed press and hold a couple buttons and than scroll through frequency's until the device turns off at which point you save it and have it programmed if you need the user guide for the controller we can get it for you as well


hope this helps
