I'd like to be able to give a more positive answer but I don't think this combination of remote and TV will work together. One-for-All do not list codes for Curry's brand devices. These are simply 'badged' TVs from an often unknown manufacturer.

As there are no codes listed for your brand, identifying a code which will work is limited to trying to identify the original manufacturer of the TV and hoping that your TV shares common components with a TV that your remote does have codes for. There are too many codes in the remote to try to guess a code or to try them all using the manual code entry method.

Your best option is to try the Code Search:

1. Switch the TV on.
2. Press the "DVD" button on your One-for-All remote
3. Press and hold the "MAGIC" button on the remote until the red LED under the POWER key flashes once, then twice.
4. Enter 9 9 1 using the number keys on the One-for-All remote

The LED will blink twice again, indicating that the code search is active.

5. Press the "POWER" button on the One-for-All remote
6. Point the remote at your TV and press the "CH+" button slowly and repeatedly until your TV switches off.
7. As soon as (or if) your TV switches off, press the "MAGIC" button again to store the code.

8. Test the remote with the TV for the common functions, i.e. POWER, VOLUME and CHANNELS.
9. If the TV does not respond (or does not respond as you would expect), go back to step 1 and continue the code search . This does not restart the code search from the beginning, it simply picks up from the code that is currently set and continues through the code list.

Please note: There are hundreds of codes stored in the remote so it can sometimes take half an hour or more to search through them all.

Your TV is a DVD combi so this means the correct code should be stored in the code list for DVD players. However, as it is impossible to discover the true identity of your TV, it is also possible that there may be a code that will work with your TV in either the TV or VCR code list. You can try repeating the code search as above, but in step 2, press either the "TV" or "VCR" button instead to run through the codes for these device types.

It is also possible to control some TV/DVD combis by using two codes. Run through the code search in "TV" mode first. If you can find one that will operate the TV functions, store it, then run the code search again in "DVD" mode. You may then find a second code that will operate the common DVD functions, e.g. PLAY, STOP, PAUSE, etc. If this method works, you simply need to remember to press the "TV" or "DVD" button on the remote first - depending on which function you are trying to control.

There is a "pot-luck" element to getting any universal remote to work with any device. There are hundreds (maybe even thousands) of universal remotes and thousands of brand/model combinations of TV. This means there is an almost incalculable number of combinations of TV and universal remote and expecting there to be a code for every device is unrealistic. Unfortunately, this element of luck also increases for devices from a lesser known brand and even more so when the TV is newer than the remote.

Please try the code searches as detailed above. This can require a lot of patience. If you still can't get any response from the TV, then it's unlikely that your particular combination is one of those that will work. You would also be taking the same chance with any other universal remote, even if you bought a new one.

If you can't get any results from the code search, please post back for further assistance.

Manual on URC-3940

Note: most remotes allow you to find the code by manually turning the TV (or other device) on first, then press the appropriate button (cable, DVD, surround, etc) then setting the the remote in the "program" mode, then keep pushing the "off/power" button until the TV (or other device) turns off, at that point the code is set.

I have a Currys Essential TV and the remote does not work. Help! Model is C15DVDB10

Have the remote tested--simple and most shops have a tester you point the remote at and press buttons--tester will flash if remote is working(can test every button on the remote).

Some digital cameras will also do this when remote is pointed at them you will see in the LCD screen a flash if remote works.

If the Remote is good----the remote receiver in the set is bad.

The remote sends a infrared signal to the front of the set (little dark or clear lens) and the lens there (cannot be dirty or blocked) sends it inside the TV for it to be processed.

I have URC 3940 and I have a TV (Panasonic TH-37PX60B) which switches on when I press SATand I wish to change this to the correct button -TV. Alson I am unable to find the correct code for my DVD...

Hello Kenneth
Here in your probem post, I do see two numbers of URC remotes. URC 3021 & URC 3940. Our of which, what brand do you want codes and instruction manual. I've all thesed detals for both remote controls. But I can't send it to you by this window, as it does not allow me to upload any PDF files by it. Both the manual [along with codes and proceedings], are in PDF format. Proceedings to synchronise in detail.
If you send me your email address, or, send me a mail at, I'll send both the manuals to you by return mail. It will be best, rather than typing more with this window I thinks. Anyway, I hereby includes the setup codes for both the remote controls for Panasonic brand.

Setup codes for Panasonic Brand TVs with URC-3021 remote control are:
0051, 0250, 0650
Setup codes for URC-3940 remote controls are 5 digit codes. They are:

10650 10226 11650 10108 11636

11310 10037 10556 10163 10208

10508 10896 10361 10853 10367
You ahve to check these setup codes, one by one, and find out which code gives you maximum functionality with your TV. That is the way to do.
