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.

Generally, converter boxes use their own remotes. The remote codes are unique and cannot be transmitted by your RCA universal remote

If you have tried all the codes for the tv, and none of them work, the tv might be too old to respond to the newer remotes. Check that the batteries are inserted properly into the remote.
Some older tvs are just not compatible with todays systems.

My universal control wont pair with my t.v, i have done everything the instructions say and it still wont work my control is a urc-22b and my t.v is a sanyo, please reply kind regards, aaron


If your remote was built and programmed less than 6 months before the TV was released or the TV is newer than the remote, then the codes in the unit will not include your TV. There is a lag in the codes being provided to the companies that build universal remotes.

Please check the date on the TV, since I see that the remote may have been released in 2006. It could be older than that. (There are requests for help with the remote with November 2006 dates that show up on a google search.) If the remote is older than the TV, try a newer universal remote.

If the TV actually is older than the remote, then try a different universal remote to check if the TV's IR receiver has failed or if the remote has failed. Some TVs can respond intermittently to a remote - hitting the sensor may bring the response back temporarily. Then you may be able to find a replacement receiver (try stores like shopjimmy.com or partstore.com). If hitting the unit works, you could try just resoldering the receiver to the board. (A solder joint that swells and contracts can lose contact between the board and the parts on the board.) When searching for parts, open the TV and find out the part number on the board that needs to be replaced. Some sites may have the part but not list the specific TV model that you have. The parts are often used in several TVs.

I hope this helps.

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.
