Remote control code/daenyx tv/dvd combo
Your TV is made by Daewoo and is distributed by Daytek. If you call the 800 number on the warranty card you will reach Daytek.
So, what you need to know is this:
#1. A lot of new products won't have a website available. That does not
say anything to their quality or the company, just that you've bought a
new product and you're one of the first purchasers.
#2. A lot of times if you buy a "no name" TV, you're actually getting
components inside the TV that are made by brand name manufacturers. For
example, "Prima" uses LG panels in some of their plasma TVs (as well as
Daytek). How do I know this? Because I'm the authorized service
provider for Daytek, and Prima and quite a few other "no name" TVs, and
I've been working on LCD and Plasma since they came out, as well as
having worked in the electronics repair industry for over 20 years. I
own an Insignia 42" LCD and am quite happy with it.
#3. Most new products that have remote controls will not have codes
available for them no matter what brand of universal remote you buy.
You have to wait for the people who make the universal remote to have
time to make a code for this new brand of TV. This can take up to a
year for cable companies, and cheaper universal remotes may never get
the code. Expensive universal remotes may be able to have their
firmware updated through the internet, so adoption of new codes for new
products may happen faster.
#4. Stores like Walmart and Costco are excellent places to buy products
like this because they usually have a "no questions asked" return
policy if you get the TV back to the store within the stores time limit
for returns (some stores are 15 days, some are 30 days, phone the store
and ask them). I had purchased a 40" Digistar LCD TV from Walmart what
had a flickering problem, I took it back the next day without any
problem at all. Then I bought a 42" Insignia Plasma TV from Future Shop
that I wasn't happy with. I took it back 3 days later and had no
problem at all. As long as you know the stores policy for returns and
follow the policy, you won't have any problems either.
#5. Try to avoid buying big-ticket items from smaller stores unless you
know their return policies. Some smaller stores will not accept returns
on LCD monitors, TVs or plasma TVs but instead require you to
handle any problems through the manufacturer.
#6. Best bet it to call Daytek and ask them if they know of any universal remotes that work on that particular model.
