Remote control assistance

My dog stepped on the remote and somehow "lost" the factory preset code, now the remote doesn't work. The same thing happened a couple of years ago and I was able to get an answer from Best Buy, but of course I didn't write it down and no one there can help me now. They tell me to call Insignia, and they are not only RUDE, but refused to help because it's "out of warrantee." All I need is the remote reset procedure. Can anyone please help?

    Apprecite it, but I know there is a factory preset code and procedure for reconnecting the remote to the TV.

    My bad...I rated it poor because it didn't solve the problem.
    I've been through this before and know there is a factory preset code and procedure for "reprogramming" the remote. If there is a way to change the rating let me know and I will. Thank you for the assistance and I apologize.

I'am not sure of the procedure to clear the unit i thought it was hold the volume button for 3 minutes... i have the same 23 lcd monitor and remote and it has happened to me several times... the code given to me was 990 and i inscribed it in the back of the remote it seem that insignia is rude to all customers and i will never buy another product with ther name on it... it seems the last time i called best buy you need to ask for tv repair department over 21 inches and just ask for the universal code i believe they gave me a code 999 but it didnt work setup and tv button at same time until the red light coomes on... then 990 i guess is all i have to offer.

It shouldn't loose the code for the television it was made for. It will possibly loose the codes for other items such as VCR's,DVD players, amplifiers etc..Try taking the batteries out for 2 minutes allowing the internal capacitors to drain then trying again. Otherwise make sure if towards the top or the bottom of the remote there are buttons to select the function you want to do such as control the TV,VCR,DVD etc. that you press the TV button before pressing the power button. If all that does't work theb time for the dog to purchase you a new remote.

Lost the remote to my philips HTL2101A and it has no power button, so i can't use a programmable remote.

It should still be possible to use a universal remote to power on your TV.

Some universal remote instructions will say that the device has to be turned on in order to properly program the remote. This is not necessarily true, and you should still be able to use the universal remote to find a preset that will at least turn your TV on so you can then follow the instructions for the remote to find the exact preset that will work with every button on the remote.

First, look in the instruction booklet of the universal remote for the section of preset codes. It should be a huge list of 3-5 digit numbers with corresponding device names. There should be at least one or several for Philips devices. Find the code that matches your device.

Then, follow the instructions to program in that code. Should be something like: Hold down a certain button until the light on the remote blinks. Enter the code. Press another button to program the remote for that code. Keep in mind every universal remote is different and will have different steps to follow, but all generally work the same way.

At this point you'll want to just try the POWER button on the remote. If your TV turns on it means the code you entered is the correct code, or at least close to the right one. If it's not the exact correct code some of the other buttons won't work or will command your TV to do the wrong thing.

If your TV does not turn on with the first code you tried, you will need to program the remote with on of the other Philips codes. Just follow the same instructions you used to enter the first code and try another one from the list. Try the POWER button with each of the codes used until the TV turns on.

If none of the Philips codes work you will need to follow the universal remote's instructions to cycle through all of the codes (I have had to do this before). There should be another section of instructions that tell you how to do this. Again, try the POWER button for every code until the TV turns on. Once the TV is on, you will want to follow the instructions for the remote as normal to find the exact code preset that will work correctly with your TV.

If all else fails you might want to purchase a remote that is at least newer than the TV you are trying to operate because an older universal remote may not have the correct preset for a newer device.

I hope this helps! Good Luck!

How do I program my remote for the ihome ... I lost the manual and I cant find it.

According to the manual the iHome IP90 line does not have a programmable remote. Have you checked the battery in the remote? It requires a CR2025 battery. The remote also has a 30ft. range, not sure if you are trying it at a further distance.

In any case, first thing I would do is to get a replacement CR2025 battery and give that a shot. If that doesn't work then the remote might be defective.

Remote control doesn't work

The only thing that comes to mind is somehow the remote became unprogrammed. This happens with some factory remotes, if you reset the code for the remote it may start working again.

There are other times (both of these Ive had experience with) when the remote will just stop working due to a defect.

Post back for any further help, thank you for stopping by Fixya!
