Hello philbarbara:
Here is the link for the manual for your Television:

"CLICK HERE"

It looks like this set has a lock for the menu which can be accessed only with the remote. Hopefully its not locked out.
But it also looks like you have buttons on top of your set. In which case you should be able to access the menu button from there.
As far as your universal remote goes, you might need to try a different code in order to control your televisions menu settings. Some codes only control on, off, volume etc. If you put the right code in your universal remote you should be able to get all of your remote functions.
You also might want to try watching out on Ebay for your remote that goes to your particular TV set. That would be the easiest way to solve your problem.
With the manual link I've provided for you, you should be able to solve this dilemma your in.
If this helped just click the thumbs up.

    The buttons also might be on the side of the television set.

Program RCA F20352SF television to DVD player


I just bought the same TV second-hand and had the same problem. Solution: Use remote to change channel to 00. You can't display channel 00 using front panel - a remote is required. I have a very basic RCA universal remote, & it does the trick.

Samsung DVD set up using Philips Universal remote SRU 5030/86


To get all the functions you need, a universal remote will not do - you need to get the OEM remote for the unit OR a remote for another unit manufactured around the same time since they usually employ similar frequencies and have similar functions.

Philips universal tv remote not working


http://www.remotecodelist.com/remotes/magnavox/Philips-Magnavox_PM525S.pdf
Thisis the user's manual for a Phillips remote control. There is a list ofcodes in it. They should be rather universal. There's also instructionsas to how to program it. I believe that there is a way to program itwithout using the codes.

Programming with Code Search

1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.

2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.

3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.

4.Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until thedevice could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks,then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, pressthe Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until thedevice changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction toforward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.

Hope this helps :)

Instructions please


Universal remotes are limited. Power, volume, channel and mute is often all you can get to work. Others buttons such as menu and source and video and antenna and CC (closed caption) will not work with any universal remote. I always recommend the original to my customers.
