That particuar remote might not work for this television completely. that is not unusual at all. it will understand some commands but not all of them. i would advise using a little black remote with white buttons that sells for $5 at the dollar general store. i have yet to see a tv that it does not work with. please rate me it would be greatly appreciated.

Trying to program my sansui tv with the cablevision remote control. unable to find codes


You have to do the universal way which involves:
1) turn on tv and dvr
2) press tv button + select, hold till the io button stays lit (5seconds)
3) once io button is lit, press up and down channel buttons and flip through them until the tv turns off.
4) press mute, this should turn the tv on.
5) press tv button to save the settings (turn off tv)

Pauz, we need the model number to be able to help you out, located on front of owners manual or on back panel of tv set. some of the GE/RCA built tv`s had problems with extra data bits from the satellite and it would kill the audio, yours may be one of those sets, heres the fix for them, shut off your tv, un-plug the tv`s AC cord from the wall outlet, wait 20 seconds, plug set back in, turn it on and see if audio has returned, you might get lucky :)
Let me know model number if unplugging does not re-set the audio, BMW Rider

This sucker will not turn on.


Check the buttons on the TV set and make sure they make a small detent like click to them, as sometimes these buttons will stick and cause the entire set not to work. Good Luck

Remotes do not work with TV


Since you can change the channels with the cable remote, I will assume that you are changing the channels on the cable box. You can find out if the Panasonic remote is broken by taking a camera with an LCD viewfinder (such as a camera phone) in a dark room, point the remote at the camera and in the viewfinder you will see a light coming from the remote if it is working. If you see a light, chances are the remote is good. You are probably correct that the remote receiving unit inside the set is the issue. To check it, if you have some technical ability.: There are three pins on the RRU. 1 is ground, 1 has 5 volt standby voltage and one has about 5 volts on it until a button is pushed on the remote, then it will drop to about 2 volts. If the last will not occur then it is the RRC. I cannot access a schematic at this time to give you reference numbers or the correct pin configuration, but, I can another time. Leadtech
