Universal remotes My original remote stopped working. Somedays it would, then th next day it wouldn't. Threw it away or actually I threw against the wall and it broke. I have bought 5 universal remotes. Three I was unable to program and get to work. Took them back. Two actually worked for a day, then they quit, then they worked, then they quit. Took them back. Batteries were fresh, new. Must be the tv. Now I'm without one. Help! I may throw the TV out. The model is TVK131, S/L# J42172535, Oct., 2001.

How to change input on tv without a remote


Which TV do you have? Some will have an Input or Source button on the front panel. A few will have an option to change the source from the menu. Both of these options require the front panel lock to be inactive.

A few older TVs allowed you to find the A/V input by pressing Channel Down on the front panel buttons until you passed channel 2 (or Channel Up until you nearly reached Channel 2). This option wouldn't work if the A/V inputs had been deleted when someone minimized going through unused channels.

If the Source or Input button was only available on the remote, you will need a universal remote that includes this feature. These cost a bit more than the lowest end remotes. Then you will have to try all of the codes to find the one that makes the Source button work with your TV. (Several codes may work for On/Off but not the change input.) The Universal remotes that can be programmed from a computer (USB connection) will be the easiest to set up. Remotes.com may have a replacement original or substitute remote for your TV that should work for all of the TV functions.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the TV make and model for specific options for your particular TV.

What kind of device can be used to inprove my tv #2 remote.got a new tv (hd tv) noe tv #2 remote wont work threw wall & doors real good anymore.what kind of device can i use?dish book said something...


Hello! Dan Busa here with Dish Network customer support. There isn't much in the way of any additional devices you can purchase. The best thing to do is to check the silver remote antennae on the receiver, if it's standing straight up you probably need to reprogram the remote.

I am trying to find a remote that will work my Sylvania 32" digital tv. I have tried 3 different remotes and none work. The remotes I have will work everything else.


Try remotes.com with the model of your TV. They often have exact duplicates of the original remote or a substitute remote that will handle most of the features of the original.

Alternatively, look at the high end remotes that are programmed by a computer.

I hope this helps.

(the age of the TV and the build date of the universal remote affect the codes. My universal remotes from early 2000s or late 1990s did not work on newer TVs with digital tuners.)

I don't have the code for a Prima TV on the list for my RCA Universal Remote. I lost the original remote. Can you tell me the code? Thanks!


Try this code... I am not 100% sure but it may be the one you need.

code:1138

Or try to seek the code with the remote..

On the Universal RCA remote press and hold the TV button and at the same time press and hold the power button, the red light will go off and after some time come on, then let go of the buttons. Next, keep pressing the power key at 4 minutes intervals until it turns the TV off.
This should be the correct code then press the stop button to save it.

Can i use a store bought universal remote and if so which one


Just about all of them will work these days. However, I've had great luck with the One For All remote's.

Another option is a learning remote. With a learning remote, you can learn any remote you own to the one. Again, the One For All 8910, is a universal and learning remote. This one is my fav:
