If the volume buttons work when using the Radio, then the buttons on the Remote are fine.
Now if the volume on your TV is set to MAX and you can barely hear it.
The issue lies with your TV.. ()
Now if I understand correctly or if I am to assume you are using a Reviever.
If the reciever is used for all volumes... If this is the case.
I also assume the volume on the TV Speakers is set to off
Therefore when you use the Radio/DVD the volume control is using the Reciever volume.
and when you switch to TV it uses the TV volume thus the TV volume is not gonna work as well.
2 scenarios
1 The TV volume even at max is not giving you enough power to get the low receiver volume
2 the Receiver volume is at max and barely audible.. if this is the case just manualy adjust your TV volume to get it to a decent sound level.

Hard to explain but I know the 2 issues can be fixed.

    Forgot to mention

    by default the volume control would be TV

    if you do use the receiver for all volume you would need to change you option in the remote setup to use the reciever as the main sound and not TV

It is a common problem that some buttons to universal remote controls won't work. Just try an other code for the same device. Select and accept a code, which have maximum functionality.

Hi My matsui tv 1409T remote died (due to battery leakage!) so I have got a signalex universal remote as a quick fix replacement. I have set the remote to switch the tv on/off, change channel and adjust...


1) Change the batteries by alkalines
2) Retight the springs contacts with plyer for better contacts.
3) clean the contacts with special spray contacts.
4) Downloa the code or proceed with your instruction manual.
5) If the problem persist, you must return you remote control and buy other from Radio Shack I am recommending.

God bless you

Try to change channels by manually entering the numbers on your remote. If this works then you need to reprogram your channels.

Remote and caption problems


have you programmed the remote? or you can go into the menu button on the front of the tv, use the up down (either the volume or channel may move the selection) to locate the caption on/off control and turn it off that way. if you need the manual try here

RCR460 with Emerson Tv doesnt change channel to input sources


found the answer but it doesnt help.......i got the number to who makes RCA remote controls and called them and talked to tech support to see what i could do for this problem. According to them, some universal remotes are compatible with most tvs but sometimes the remote can only give you the basic functions (chan up/down, volume up/down, #'s, mute an so on.) i dont really understand why it wouldnt work for the input channel but i do know i have a lower end and low priced tv. so....just like everything else the more you pay...the better it is. I checked the remote on my other tv in the living room and everything works just fine, even the input button. Hope this helps...
