I have a rca246 remote that came with tv and the volume button is not working. I have purchased 4 remotes -3 of which are rca remotes- and am unable to program any of them to use with the tv. What do I...


Many of the RCA TVs are not compatible with universal remotes. Only the RCA 246 remote works with many of the TVs. I bought a floor model RCA from best buy, at a discount, without a remote. I had to purchase the RCA 246 remote for the tv to work. I found one but I recently cracked the screen of the tv so I have no need for the remote. I listed it on ebay at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140550835863&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT

Remote doesn't work


here's a tip to test all remotes

point it at your digital camera/webcam
although the human eye cannot see infared, your camera lense can
watch the monitor to check if its flashing.


also - if you have moved the set, perhaps something inside - such as a wire loom - has fallen in front of the infa red reciever? or it may just need the window cleaning

No remote-


Have you bought a universal remote for the tv? That is what we had to do to get to av mode and when you do make sure you try the input button before settling with the first code that works. We stopped at the first code that changed the channels and still could not get into av mode. Finally I tried the rest of the codes and found the correct one. HOPE THIS HELPS

The input button


On some sets you can use the menu button to enter the menu and navigate to the page which shows what input is currently selected and change it there. If your set does not have that option, then you will need the remote to do it. I have found that on some universal remotes, the TV/VCR button switches the inputs on the TV when the remote is in the TV mode. If that button does not work on your remote for your set, and you have tried all possible codes for JVC TVs, then the only way to switch inputs is to invest a few dollars more and get an original remote from JVC or have the set repaired so that the input button on the TV functions again.

Remote doesn't work


Possibly some of the dry wall dust could have gotten into the buttons on your remote. You can check the remote by holding it close to an AM radio receiver and listening for popping sounds as each button on the remote is pushed. You may have to move the remote around to find a position where the radio will pick up the signals. (usually close to the antenna ) also you may have to tune you radio up and down the dial. With this method you can test each button on your remote! Hope this will help you! Stargazer

27" MAGNAVOX W/ CHILD LOCK ON- NO REMOTE!


On those particular Magnavox TV's you have to use the original type of remote to power it back on then un-lock the parental lock. It is a bummer that nothing else will work. Here is a link to purchase a replacement remote.. http://www.electronicadventure.us/Merchant2/merchant.mv?screen=prod

Cant change channels


Your in the video mode so you have to change the input. On the original remote, its the button left of the power button. A universal may not work for this. If you need the original remote, Its available at http://www.remotes.com Good Luck
