I have a Durabrand 1301 TV, and I seem to have lost the instruction manual for it.
Unfortunately, my cat has knocked the remote on the floor too many times, and the button to allow me to play my DVD player no longer works. Is there a way to access the DVD player using the buttons on the TV? I haven't found one for it, but have noticed that the volume buttons on the TV have subtitles 'set menu + -' and the channel buttons 'enter' and 'reset'. I don't know how to access these 'subfunctions' or if it would help me even if I did.
On a related but different note, I do have a 'universal' remote. So far, I've gotten to about 0135 without finding the code to make it work for this TV. Any ideas?

Re: dead remote = no dvd access?
Try a RCA universal remote with an input button. Try the codes for Orion , Sansui and RCA. Access the menu by holding down both volume buttons on the front of the set. There is no access to the jacks on the front of the set without a remote. If all else fails get a RF Modulator. This will allow you to watch your dvd by using the antenna jack on the back of the set.

Unfortunately, if there isn't a button for it on the panel of the TV, there is no way to switch the mode without the remote. Just like these new DVD players that only have a power, play, and eject button on the unit itself. Without the remote, you can't access any other feature or command.

unfortunately not. I had the same problem, in the end i had to go and but a universal remote (which are very cheap, depending on where you look!). After you have your remote, the code you need to sync. the remote to the TV is 210
I own a One-for-All universal remote, and my booklet says the setup code for a Durabrand TV (without a built-in DVD or VCR) is one of the following numbers: 0171, 0178, 0180, 0463, 1034. I can not guarantee that these numbers will work with your remote, but it is worth a try.
Sorry to say but it is very hard to get parts for this brand. I don't take them for repair anymore. I have a few Duraband remotes. If you can give me the model number of yours, maybe I have a matching one for you.
I am not sure about Direct TV but dish network does not allow the hookup to go through their box...it must go through the TV only. Speaking with Duraband at 1-800-256-2487 confirms you have to have a Duraband remote and universals won't program to it. Ask for parts dept. and order a new remote. Sorry - not good news for me either!!!
