Universal Remotes? No! What is a Facsimile Remote?

Your television or other device remote control fails and you think "I'll have to get a Universal Remote". In reality, no one buys universal remotes these days. They are so far back in the 1980s! You buy a 'facsimile remote' which is exactly the same as the original and requires no programming. Very often they are the same shape and the same button layout, so there is no learning transition. Google;

make model (of television) replacement remote

You will find somewhere like this

https://www.remotecontrols.com/
or
https://www.remotes.com/

For those that still want universal remote codes, the make of the universal remote is irrelevant, you only need the television make, as the codes are universal by maker. This link will find you the best websites for codes.

my 502 Apex remote stopped working,can i use a universal remote instead and if so,what code do i use?

It's always "hit or miss" with universal remotes. You never know which ones will work with your devices, and if the remote will control your device's features even when you've managed to make a connection. Why not purchase an Apex remote instead?

the philips universal remote codes for my apex tv don't wok. Since I put new batteries in none of the codes for apex tv work

Hello
Philips universal remote control cannot be synchronised with Apex Digital TV. There is no code for Apex with it. There are very rare remote controls which have codes with Apex Digital. Comcast On Demand Custom DVR 3-Device Universal Remote Control is one amoung them. Codes for Apex Digital Tv; with this remote are:
0748, 0765, 0767
Buy this one. It can be sychronised with most of the present devices. OK.

I need the code for the Universal remote control for a Sanyo TV

1. You always need to include ALL model numbers with your problem description, otherwise no one can help you effectively.

2. There is no such thing as a 'universal remote' since the coding is totally non-standard and may differ from one model to the next even within one manufacturer's current lineup.

3. You may be able to find a listing of models for a given remote here:


Remotes


When thinking about buying a 'universal' remote, get the model number and check the maker's website for a listing of models the remote can control.

Finally, if the remote is older than the set you want to control, it probably won't have the necessary codes to control all of the device's functions if any at all.
