OK, If it is Coby TV remote then it doesn't need any programming to work with Coby TV as it would be pre-programmed, please check following link to get correct Coby remote for your TV that will work without putting any code into..

One more question before I order the remote. I cannot make changes using the buttons on the side of the tv. Does that mean anything?
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

Yes, it does matter a lot in TV problem, what exactly are TV current symptoms and what appears on TV screen if press Power button on TV side panel?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Power comes on. Blue screen with TV name appears and then it goes to a gray screen that says no signal. I tried to change things but the arrow buttons wouldn't work.
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.

OK, please try to press a few times Input or Source button on side panel of TV OR try volume button as well a few times to see if it works?
