I need code(s) for my DVD Video, Model #: NB093 remote control to program my Philips DVD Player/VCR, Model #: DVP3345V/17. Can you please help me? I would greatly appreciate it. Here is a picture of it. lists the code for your device as possibly being 1000, 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, or 1005. Of course, you also have the option of using the remote controller's "Code Search" button. 25300580-iv4burzhkawezvl2jbah1xae-2-0.jpg With Codes:
Turn on the DVD/VCR unit directly. Continue to depress the remote controller's "Code Search" button for about ten seconds, release, & the light on the remote controller should stay on. Enter the four-digit code (1000, 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, or 1005) for the DVD/VCR unit. The remote controller's light should go off. Press the remote controller's power button, & when the DVD/VCR unit turns off, then you will know that the remote controller has been correctly programmed.

Without Codes:

With the DVD/VCR unit on, continue to depress the remote controller's "Code Search" button for about ten seconds, release, & the light on the remote controller should stay on. Continue to tap the remote controller's UP or DOWN channel button ONLY UNTIL the DVD/VCR unit responds. Then, press the power button on the remote controller once the channel has changed. If the DVD/VCR unit shuts off, then press the power button again to turn it back on. If the DVD/VCR unit turns on, then the remote controller has been correctly programmed. Otherwise, repeat this whole process until the remote controller is correctly programmed.

Hello-- I believe the remote sensor in my unit is

Remote sensors are fickle beasts; and they can develop weird characteristics in any appliance, but they seldom fail completely. It is usually the circuit behind it which can fail, in particular, the function control IC (this IC is easy to locate on the board as the sensor is directly connected within close proximity to it).

When this circuit fails or it becomes weak, the unit no longer receives the correct pulses from the remote. It can be a fiddly repair job, add the cost of parts to that list, and it becomes expensive and time-consuming. You may be able to locate a replacement IRD from an electronics store, which will fit/work like the original did - note its pin orientation and voltage rating (IRDs are voltage rated, typically around 5V), as for the function control IC, unless you note the original's part number, this could prove impossible to obtain.

My guess is that for you it is simply a faulty IRD (or IR receiver) - if you can obtain the right one for your model, it should be an easy repair. It may or may not be soldered directly to the board. Hopefully you do not need a new function control IC as well.

Fingers crossed for you on this one.

I need the code for RCR311S universial remote to operate my dvd player (magnasonic)

Step 1: Press and hold the device key (TV, VCR, SAT, etc) you wish to program. The illuminated ON/OFF key(*) turns on and remains on. If you release the device key at any time during the Direct Code Entry procedure, the illuminated ON/OFF key blinks 4 times, and the process is exited.
Step 2: While holding down the device key, use the number keys (0-9) on the keypad to enter your equipment's code. While you are pressing the numbers, the illuminated ON/OFF key turns off.
Step 3: After the 4th number is entered, the illuminated ON/OFF key turns on. At this time, release the device key. If the illuminated ON/OFF key turns off, you have entered a valid code and have followed the correct procedure. If you enter a code that is not in the Code Lists or you do not follow all of the correct steps for Direct Code Entry, the illuminated ON/OFF key blinks 4 times when the component key is released - an indication that a programming error has occurred. In that case, repeat the process from Step 1 and try the next code in the list.
Step 4: To confirm that remote is programmed with the correct code for maximum functionality, test it. If some of the features of your equipment do not work, try programming the remote with a different code in the list until you find the code that allows the remote to control the majority of your component's functions as different codes can provide different levels of functionality.
* some models like the RCR450 have a LED indicator light in place of the illuminated ON/OFF key.

i hope this would work for your remote controll please contact me if it does

My ge universal remote control doesnt have the right codes for my Curtis DVD player model 1053. the code cearch function works but not correctly. i have to go through and press each button to see what...

All universal remote controls do not contain codes for all possible functions. Some just manage on-off. You may have to try a different universal remote control.

Remote want work on tv


Make sure that you're using the supplied Remote (RMY-906) to control the TV. If so, perform the steps given below to resolve the issue.

  • Make sure that you're using batteries which are having enough charge. Try using fresh alkaline batteries.
  • Do not use rechargeable batteries in the Remote.
  • Ensure that the batteries are inserted correctly with the correct terminals by checking the + and - symbol in the battery compartment.
  • Make sure that the Remote is set to operate with the correct functions. On the remote control, press the TV FUNCTION button to re-check this.
  • Press the POWER button and other buttons to test the operation.
  • Make sure that none of the buttons are jammed in the remote control.
  • Ensure that the remote control is being used no closer than 3 feet and no further than 10 feet away from the unit. Try using the remote control at varying distances from the TV.
  • When using the remote control, be sure to point it directly at the remote sensor on the device.
  • Remove any obstacles that may be in the path between the remote control and the device.
  • Ensure the remote sensor of the device is not exposed to direct sunlight or bright florescent lights, as this can interfere with the sensors ability to receive signals from the remote control.
  • Try resetting the Remote. To reset the Remote. remove the batteries from the remote control, press every button twice, and then reinstall the batteries.
  • Try resetting the TV also to check the operation. To reset the TV, disconnect the power cord for a short period of time (approximately 1 minute), then reconnect the power cord and power on the television.

If the remote control is able to operate other devices (such as cable box, DVD Player or satellite receiver), then the issue may be with the IR sensor on the TV. If this is the case then the TV that will require service. Otherwise, the remote control may need replaced.

Good Luck!

If you are using a third unit in the hook-up look in the owners manual for the correct connections and the correct setting for the use of it with the other two units.The only way to be sure you have you hook -up correct is by useing the owners manuals, because the have all the details for these set-ups.
