I bought a prima tv but they didn't have the remote with it, so I bought a remote the same make as the prima tv and I don't have a manual on how to program it. The remote is Prima Rc- S10-OB TV/DVD/VCR/CATV/SAT Remote Control. I would appreciate some help on how to program. Before that I bought a RCA universal Remote and couldn't get that to work either.

Re: can't get the remote to work
Try pressing the TV button on the Prima remote to make it work on the TV. It should work on the Prima Tv without new codes. Codes would be needed for your cable box.
Consider calling Prima at 866-447-7462 for the codes. They should have a website for the codes or email you the codes for free.

Hello Check the remote first for its infrared emission. If it is OK, the infrared sensor inside your tV is faulty. It should be replaced with same type and number. It can be located just behind the infrared window at the front panel of your Tv. You ahve to open your TV ot access it. It will have three solder terminals, and will look somehat brownish black in colour. Will look like this.
Looks like a lot of people are having problems with connecting Prima TV's I would suggest you go to the website then select the contact us option. They should be made aware of the problem so that a proper solution can be done by the manufacturer
I'msorry I did also attempt to locate a Prima remote code within DISH Network's database aswell but unfortunately I was unsuccessful and have found no remote codesfor the TV you have. However, we can still attempt to program the DISH Networkremote to the Prima television without a remote code, this would be done bycompleting a Power scan. If you decide you would like to program the DISHNetwork remote to your TV using the power scan, I have included instructionsbelow to further assist you.
Withthe desired equipment on, press and hold the correct Mode button (In this casethe mode button will be "TV") until all the other mode button back lightsilluminate, then release.
1.Pressand release the Power button.
2.Pressthe Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment.
Note: If the code for the equipment comes up, theequipment will power off.
3.Pressthe POUND (#) button. If the codeentered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.
After successfully completing the power scan to program the DISHNetwork remote to your T.V the remote should now control your TV. I hopethis helped! Please feel free to let me know if you have any other questions orneed additional help. -Kirstie DISHNetwork
