On your remote try pressing enter and then the #3 this should program the remote to match the dvd player. It worked for me last night.

I am looking for a universal remote control that will operate a Samsung DVD-V4700 DVD-VCR combo. The original Samsung remote is part number 0008A.

The remotes I use for work are made by URC. They are a bit more expensive but will control just about anything.

Do you have a universal remote? Sometimes they will forget their programming, especially when batteries are removed, or get low. If you have the codes and instructions for your remote, I would try reprogramming it. If that doesn't work, take it back to the company that did the cleaning. It worked when you sent it to them, or at least if it didn't this wasn't wrong with it. Seems to me they hold some liability in this, and should make it right without charging you.

Can I obtain a new Remote Control for my Sylvania Video Cassette Recorder/DVD Player Model SRD3900? The original one is broken beyond repair. I was told at Sears that a universal control can only be used...

You can try a number of possibilities. Search for the model and name on the internet. It will turn up lots of info and possible used parts. Ebay is very good. And you will likely turn up the manufactures site with a possible replacement part. Expect it to be very expensive compared to a used part. You can try the universal controlers but get one that learns new commands. There is a modest chance you can find an identical unit and program it from the that. Ask sears to let you use the floor model. If the unit is still working but not reliably, you program each key and keep trying till each key works on the universal.

I have a Panasonic DMR-BW880 in New Zealand, expecting (for the huge amount that it cost) it would play DVDs from all regions. But it won't. Can you tell me an unlock code and how to use it please?


This player region hack is done programming a service remote, then using the programmed remote on the unit to unlock the region. There is no way to unlock this unit using buttons on the original remote, or on the unit.

You can purchase a programmed remote kit using the link below:

Looking for a remote control

Can't help with replacing original remote, but if you get a universal remote, you can look for the programming code here:

Instructions with universal remote will say how to program, then look up the code in the booklet that comes with it, or try the above site to get the 3 or 4 digit code to program it to work.

Hi there...
I purchased a new Malata 19", I do not know if the controls are compatibles, but they should be... I recommend you purchase a learner control remote and I can help you program it from my remote control... I know it sounds crazy, but that is the way that I had solved those kinds of problem before...
If interested, send email to

Universal remote for dmr-ez47v

if you're checking online retailers, you may be able to get the remote directly from Panasonic Parts. If you have a manual, look under the accessory list and get the part number - if you don't have the manual, the part number is EUR7659T80 and the phone number to the parts dept is 1-800-332-5368. If you purchased the unit as an open box, you would be charged for the remote as it's not covered by warranty. If it was a new unit and you're within 30 days of purchase, they can process a remote exchange if you contact the customer call center at 800-211-7262.
