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 (
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

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