I would suggest that first you state WHICH Universal Remote you bought. They work in different ways and I am sure SOMEONE can help if they first know the make and model of yours.

Co-incidentally I have JUST returned from helping a neighbour with a Kameleon URC8305. I have one and it happily controls my now old Sony TV and even controlled HIS much more recent Sony.
As I understand the different makes of universal remotes work in different ways so - unless it is a URC one I can't help

My remote was working fine until i moved. I have Direct Tv and the remote from Direct Tv works on guide. I bought a new remote from Magnavox but it doesn't work my tv. what should I try? '


You have to program the remote control to synchronize with TV. If you wish to get moredetails; codes, three digits, four digits or five digit ones, check this link. Pull up older posts there. Setup code list and setup instructions to some popular model remote controls are given. Select the 'Timeslide' option from the drop-down list by the 'Sidebar' at the display window. It will make search easy.

The tv that i have is a old model and does not have a hook up for a dvd player so i bought a s video cord but i don't have the remote for the tv to switch it to video so do i have to buy a converter


Maybe. What tv do you have? Does it have any buttons on the tv itself (other than the power button)? (Some older TVs reached the "change source feature" by scrolling up (past all channels) or down (below channel) with the channel up/down buttons. Unfortunately if you can't reset the channel skip list from the TV itself, this may not work - if that source is currently skipped.)

You may be able to get a replacement of the original remote or a universal remote that has a compatible source/input button code. (This may take a higher end universal remote.) Try remotes.com for a direct substitute remote (search on the tv model without including the brand).

If neither of these suggestions work out, then you should consider the RF modulator (video to RF converter) and setting the TV to channel 3 or 4, as needed.

I hope this helps.

(if you provide the model, I'll check my pile of manuals to see if there was a channel down/up option for changing the source. I can also check if remotes.com has a compatible remote for you.)

Have an RCA remote i am trying to use with my Vizio 1080p hdtv. Instructions on the universal remote are as follows: -Turn on TV -Press and hold "code search" untill light stays lit. release. -Press TV...


Newer brands of tvs are using new codes that old remotes don't have. Only older learing remotes from original remotes or USB upgradable or newer one that were made after the tv was made will work.

Just bought a remote, instructions guided me here. looking for code for: rca colortrax2000 model:F27100AK serial:849530652


Not all the universal remotes are compatible with all the sets out there. Look on the list and see if there are any RCA sets to begin with. Try them all to see if there is one that will work.

If you cannot make the remote work, bring it back.

When shopping for a universal remote, always make sure that your model of TV set is on the compatiblity list of the new remote.

I would think that an RCA universal remote should work with RCA products. This may be a good start.

Just remember that universal remotes are not fully compatible to all the functions. They will usualy only work with the main functions of the TV set or intended device. There are too many limitations in the software and design when considering all the millions of code combinations that are out there!
