I lost my original remote control of my DVD Protron PD-800 and I do not know how to set up my Sony universal remote control because I do not have the code.
I will appreciate if someone can help me to do this.
The code I used and it seems to work is 0194, but while trying to program my receiver, It changed some setting and the picture keeps looping over and over on the screen, and I can't get it to stop, I even made it worse while messing with the settings....
There is a code. A few years back I was trying to figure out the same thing using a Jensen JR500 universal remote. It uses the same code as another company, but that was years ago and I can't remember which. Most likely it was Proscan, but thing is I couldn't use it under DVD or even AUX I had to use it under VCR. If I can I will try and re-investigate this problem so I can post the code for you guys.

Don't bother. Instead just go out and buy a Universal remote control that can control almost any device or devices. It comes with complete instructions to have each device "tell" the remote the code and the remote will then store each for each device. You can purchase a Universal control at your large drug stores or electronic stores.
The universal remote are very limited in functions for all original electronic devices,only like power on button,play button work only mostly.Try website like Remotes.com to buy the dvd player original remote control.
There are no codes for Protron DVD player you need to use the search mode on the remote here is how.
S earchching For Youour Code If your home entertainment device does not respond to the remote control after trying all of the codes listed for your brand, or if your brand is not listed at all, try searching for your code. For example, after trying all of the codes for your TV, you still cannot get the remote control to operate your TV, then: 1. Turn on your TV. 2. On the remote control, press TVTV once. Then press and hold Setup until the TVTV key blinks twice, then release Setup. 3. Enter 9 - 9 - 1. The TVTV key will blink twice. 4. Press and release the digit 1. The TVTV key will blink twice. Note: Substitute 1 with 0 if searching for a Cable code, 2 if searching for a DVD, VCR or PVR and 3 if searching for an Audio device 5. Press Power and aim the remote control at the TV and press CH + one or more times until the TV turns off. NOTE: In the search mode, the remote control will send IR codes from its library to the selected device, starting with the most popular code first. 6. Press Setup once to lock in the code.The TVTV key will blink twice. 7. To search for the codes of another device, repeat steps 1 to 5, but substitute the AUX key for the device you are searching for.

• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Do any of you think is any worht to spend a penny more on this Protron PD-800 DVD player ? I have just throught it away. I have no more time to loose.
Please just forget it. I am not a repairmen. Nice to know somebody else is capable of fix it.
I have the same problem, and you have two options:
(1) Buy a Logitech Harmony remote - they are expensive, but their database probably has the codes.
(2) Go to remotes.com and get the original for $40 or so. Use a learning universal remote to grab the codes, and leave the original remote in a safe place.
