Question about JVC XV-501 DVD Player

1 Answer

JVC's remote won't work on the DVD, but works on the tv (RCA)

The original remote does not work on the dvd but works on a tv with a different brand. (RCA)
Do I need to reset the remote for the dvd, and how do I do it, if that's problem.

Thank you,
James Chapman

    Well thanks for the solution, but unfortunetly it did'nt work. After taking out the batteries and pressing all the buttons for at least 30 seconds, the remote still did not work.

    Do you have any more solutions?

    Do I have to reset the remote or the DVD codes? And how do I do it?



    Sincerely Yours,

    James

Before trying to reset the remote, take out the batteries, press all the buttons repeatedly for about 30 seconds, reinsert batteries, and try again

I cant find my roku remote any idea if I can use another universal remote? I also need the rca universal remote codes for rcr 311b1 for a magnavox dvd player..


you can buy a new magnavox remote at amazon.ebay and a whole lot of different places. you can also check online to see whitch product the different universal controls support. but usually the original remote is better as its set up for the spesific product rather than support everything from tv, dvd to air cons in some cases

Isn't this just a simple hookup? What am I not doing?


You either need to change the input source. Currently the source is TV, depending on how you connected the DVD player to the TV, it should be composite (A/V), component video or HDMI. (S-video is also a possibility. Very few DVD players are connected on the RF (coax) input which might be channel 3 or 4 without having a converter between the DVD player and the TV.)

Look on your TV remote for a button marked Source or Input. You may also find this button on the TV. (On some TVs, this may also be accessed through the menus.)

How did you connect the TV and the DVD player? If your audio and video were connected via three RCA plugs (yellow, red, white) on each end, then use the composite video input. If you used cables with 3 RCA plugs for video (yellow, green, blue) and 2 for audio (red/white), then switch to the component input. If you used HDMI which carries audio and video in one cable (with rectangular ends), then use the HDMI input.

Some older TVs only have the Source/Input button on their original remote. Not all universal replacement remotes have this button, you may need a different remote. Those that do may require you to try additional codes for your TV manufacturer to enable the button. (The on./off buttons often will work with more of the codes for a brand.) The ones that can be programmed via a USB connection to a computer are most likely to support the function. Please add a comment with the type of TV for additional help with this.

I hope this helps.

Need Remote fo RCA DRC8312N DVD-VCR Combo Thanks, Monte Haun mchaun@hotmail.com


My original remote malfunctioned for my RCA DRC8312N. I have purchased a RCA universal remote # RCR6473. I have used code # 3242 for the DVD code.It does almost everything that the original remote did except to open the DVD door. You just need to experiment with the onscreen info display in order to change title names and thumbnails etc. The remote also works great for other euipment functions as well as working features on my Sharp tv.

Need the remote code for a phillips dvd player


These are the codes printed in the owners manual for your dvd/vcr player.If they do not work you will have to contact Emerson and ask them for help getting the code. The contact number should have come with the instructions for the remote. Just give them the model number of you remote and the units model number and they should be able to help you. I hope this information helps you with your problem. Switch the input selector on your TV to an appropriate external input channel (usually near channel 0).
Press a button on the TV’s original remote control that selects an external input channel until the DVD
recorder’s picture appears. Check your TV owner’s manual for details.

Remote code needed


20839 is the DirecTV & Access HD universal remote code for Mintek, Shinsonic, & US Logic. None of which brands are listed in my Yamaha RAV283 remote code list (uses 4-digit codes).

20717 is also listed for Mintek by DirecTV. Other brands with the same code on DirecTV remote are: Apex, Blaupunkt, GE, Greenhill, Initial, KLH, Nesa, & RCA.

Of those brands, only Apex & RCA are listed in my Yamaha remote's list. I tried all of the codes for those 2 brands under types DVD, DVD Recorder, DVD/VCR, & TV/DVD. None worked. It appears to me that only those 3 brands for 20839 share the same remote code settings. If your remote doesn't support any of those 3, I doubt you will be able to use that particular remote with the Mintek DVD-1600.

I hope my research helps someone with this, as it was unfruitful for myself. Good Luck!
