Rca truflat pfa off. without remote. it's an older model

Customer Question

Rca truflat pfa off. without remote. it's an older model without digital but I have a digital converter box. I also bought a new universal remote by RCA, entered the. Tv code via code search method they recommended. It did turn the TV on, but nothing else. Àlso Recoded the Dolby
Digital Converter (dsconverter.com)
com). the remote didn't work at all. had to turn it on manually. conversely none of RCA's toggles work manually... only by reprogramming the code each time I turn the TV and remote on. the code goes awa
y when I turn the TV off although I
followed instructions on how to lock it in
. I'm quite frustrated because I tried
every combination of buttons I could on
both TV and remote, even unplugged the
TV and digital converter to see if that would reset both or even one. no dice. I found your site by Google search.
please help me before I smash that damn TV . thanks. Dave

Hi Dave,

Unfortunately there is no combination of buttons that will make this particular remote work with the TV.
