Hello -

 

Did you try 10047, 12187, 11781 or did you give the generic entries a test?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I tried over 100 codes. No luck. I tried you guys because it said RCA experts.
Expert:  TVGUY replied 2 years ago.

edit:

 

I edited my last post. added new codes.

 

L40FHDM11 (11781)

L40FHD41YX9 (12187)

Generic: 10047

 

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ya. No go. Sorry, but this probably won't work.
Expert:  TVGUY replied 2 years ago.

Mmmm....Those codes are direct from RCA. Please double check the model numbers?

 

Also, Did you try the bump n run method when you entered all those codes?>

edit: pull the batteries and leave them out for a few minutes.

  • Set the "Mode Switch" to the desired mode such as TV for a Television.
  • Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button until the visible LED blinks twice.
  • Enter the code "991" followed by the "device number"
    • "1" for Televisions
  • You can step through the setup codes for this mode by pressing the "Channel Up" key to go forward through the codes or pressing the "Channel Down" key to go back to the previous codes.
  • You can try out each code by pressing one or more function keys such as power, volume or digit keys.
  • When you've found the setup code that works for your device, press the "Select" key.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
still no success. RCA has screwed us over by changing and not updating with directv.
Expert:  TVGUY replied 2 years ago.

Ok thanks. I can't imagine these codes not working as they are available in the database. Did you have any luck with the manual method I provided?

 

Mike S.

Expert:  TVGUY replied 2 years ago.

Can you please check your TV manual and documentation kit for any update letter regarding Direct TV codes? Another customer had the same issue and solved hers by adding code 10178. Worth a shot.

Please let me know if any of these work. These are all RCA codes, and have no specific make.

Expert:  TVGUY replied 2 years ago.

Well. I am out of ideas. I am going to go ahead and jump out of your question unless I hear back from you. There is still the last block that I posted but I assume you tried these generic codes.

 

Thank you.

Hi, I’m a moderator for this topic and I wonder whether you’re still waiting for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will do my best to find an Expert to assist you right away. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thaat was a whole lot of codes to go through. Still doesnt work. I now have someone from directv saying that RCA started using 58khz whereas practically everyone else uses 38khz for tv remotes.
Expert:  TVGUY replied 2 years ago.

I had actually read the same thing in an online forum but I had not been able to confirm that the radio frequency had actually changed on your model. It may be true if DirectTV gets a lot of these calls then their support knowledgebase may actually contain this question. However - the database that I have has the codes listed - so I am not sure what is accurate. The manual does state that if you cannot find a code for your model, you must revert back to the remote from the original TV. Thanks for the update.
