Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.

The model of the tv is KDL-40S3000, which is what you would need for a new remote. Are you asking for help with programming a cable/satellite remote? Or a recommendation for a replacement sony remote to buy?

I need help programing a new Xfinity remote
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 10 months ago

Okay, can you tell me how many digits your remote requires for its code - 3, 4, or 5? I can give you the appropriate code, but comcast will need to provide the actual instructions as it is their equipment.
