    Trying to set up media on my technika tv and it's telling me to get the full key pad to press the unlock button on my remote. I'm pressing it but it isn't unlocking.

Hi, I would first download the manual for this tv. Try searching online for it. Then read to see what it says. I believe you may have to press and hold two buttons together to get the menu to appear.

I'm using a Time Warner remote as a universal for my TV but when I go to change channels, it just lights up the CBL button and doesn't change the channel. Can I program it to my TV or will it


Hi, you need to de-activate the "programming channel control lock" option. You can see instructions in the manual for the remote. They are as follows:

  1. On the remote control, press CBL once; It will blink once, Press and hold SETUP until the CBL key blinks twice.
  2. Enter 9 7 3. The CBL key will blink twice.
  3. Press CH- once. The CBL key will blink four times.
    Now the remote control will provide TV and VCR channel-control capabilities while in the TV mode.
for any other information with programming this remote:

Just bought an RCL3210 TV. The odd thing is that the Channel up/down key on the remote control does not change the channel. Also, the up/down channel key on the TV itself also does not respond. When you...


You need to find how to CLEAR the auto channel settings. Sounds like the TV is set to SKIP all channels. Look for a MENU and then look for an AUTO setting that will walk through all channels and set those where you have reception as the "list" that the remote and the Up/Down buttons on the tv will choose.
PS: GREAT writeup on your problem and the things you have tried.

1. the newstar universal tv remote contrlol i bought, cannot change the channel, although i can use the adding/minus the volume. 2. in as much as wanted to use also for te change of channel, i follow...


Unfortunately, universal remotes often do not work as well as the packaging says.... but all hope is not lost.
First, try ALL the programming codes listed for your brand of TV. Often, one will work. Be sure to follow the programming instructions, which usually have you trying the POWER ON/OFF button first after reprogramming.
If that fails, most universal remotes have a "scan" feature that, when you start it, will cycle through every code it has stored. During a "scan" you keep the remote pointed at the set and when the set powers off, you hit the ENTER key (or the key specified in the remote manual) to stop the scan and test the functioning of your remote (channel +/-, VOL +/-, etc.)- it takes a long time and can get frustrating, but keep trying and you should find a set of codes that will operate your TV correctly.
If you have no luck, do not give up hope completely- I would next recommend that you purchase a Philips brand universal remote- this is the brand that I have found to be most flexible.

Looking for At&t uverse remote control code for 24inch Dynex tv


you dont need the code for real all you have to do is follow the steps necessary to enter a code but instead of entering code press the channel up button repeatedly until it changes the channel when it does press enter/ok or similar button and you have a nice working remote for your tv without the code!!!! Hope this works out for you, it has for me everytime i get a universal remote its just a lot faster to just keep pressing the channel up button instead of unfolding the paper finding codes and what knot. GOOD LUCK!!!!

Same problem as above.Disney p1310ATV lost the remote. No Phone # in orginial manual.Television system NTSC (American TV Standard) I have tried other universal remotes also I have a Sony RM-V210 universal...


there may be a problem with the tvs remote sensor. most universal remotes you dont even have to enter any codes you just have to follow the same steps to enter the code but instead of entering a code all you have to do is press the channel up button after following all other steps, just keep pressing up until it turns the channel on the tv then press enter or similar button after it changes the channel and this should lock in the code without entering a specific code.And if all other remotes only half the buttons work on if it happens with every universal remotes then it probably a problem with the remote sensor or the tv . Good luck too ya!!!

There is no way to accsess the tv video without the remote i have a G E universal remote and need the correct code for this model


most universal remotes let you search through the code base by simply following the steps to enter a code then just keep pressing the channel up button instead of entering the code, just keep hitting the channel up button until it changes the channel on the tv. 9 out of 10 times this will work! GOOD LUCK!!
