Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello there and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I am an engineer with over 30 years of electrical and electronic training, repair and installation experience. I will try and answer your question accurately and precisely so that we can get you on your way.
Can you tell me the make and model of the Universal Remote you plan to use please?
Are you sure it is "HR71H" I am not familiar with that model.
Ok. Give me a few minutes to look at this for you. I'll be back.
Ok, you said that you had tried codes. Did you have any success at all? You stated that you specifically were trying to change Sources. Does that mean that the codes worked EXCEPT for changing the source?
Ok, so you simply need the source changed once and then it will stay like that permanently?
Ok, since I don't know which codes you have tried, can you let me know if you have tried any of these?
11291 11480 10250 10178 10156Also, can't you just change the source from the buttons on the TV - especially if you only need to do it once.
Ok. Let me know.Here are the programming instructions:
Turn on the TV manually or using the original TV remote.Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button at the same time until the green light on the top of the remote blinks twice.Using the number key, enter the first digit of the code above. Wait for the green light on top of the remote to flash twiceEnter the remaining 4 digits of the code above.Aim the remote at your TV and press the "OFF" key once. Your TV should turn off. If it does not turn off, repeat the steps above, trying each code until you find the correct code.
Ok. Any luck?
Ok. which code works best, ***** ***** all?
This TV appears to be a hotel-type TV. Is that correct?
Ok, that may have something to do with it. Hotels wouldn't want the occupant changing the source which would then probably generate a call to the front desk because now the occupant can't find regular channels.Are you actually a hotel or so you just happen to have a few TVs in your home that you bought from a hotel?
Ok. There is a Hotel Mode setup so you can set the initial source input. Would that help? Then it sounds like we just need to turn the TV on and off?
Sure. It is shown here-----> https://www.manualslib.com/manual/118426/Panasonic-Th-32lrt12u.html?page=26#manual
I assume that you have one of the original remotes?
Ok, so that will set the source. Then we are just looking for something that will do power on/off and volume??
So ALL of those codes only do Volume? None turn the TV on or off?
I don't see how to step through the codes like you can with most other remotes. Do all 16 TVs have this same RC71 remote?
Ok. I do not have an answer for you unfortunately.
I am going to opt out of this question which will allow other Panasonic TV experts to chime in.I'm sorry.
Hold on please.
