I guessing that you input a code for you TV and only a few buttons work, like power, channels, and volume, but no menu or mute, etc.
have you tried a learning remote? sony makes one for about 20-25 dollars that will learn every button you like, no matter what type of TV it is.
I hope someone can help me, because I have pretty much reached the end of my rope.
Last October I purchased my first LCD TV and I am quite happy with it. It is a 19 inch Proscan model 19LA20Q. So far, everything has been working perfectly fine, but I have found that the remote is somewhat substandard from a build point of view.
Seeing as I have kids who accidentally drop the remote on a regular basis, I decided to get a universal remote to act as a backup. The only problem is that no matter which remote I have purchased, they have all failed to register with the TV. Proscan is always listed as one of the supported brands and I have tried all the the codes (manufacturer and even clicking individually through all the available codes) without luck. I have tried Phillips, RCA, JVC, and GE universal remotes and had to return each and every one.
I suspect that the Logitech Harmony remote might be my best bet, but that is WAY more remote than I need, and it is out of my planned budget.
Has anyone had any trouble with getting a universal remote to work with Proscan LCD TVs? What finally worked?
I really want to avoid having the remote break and not have a backup available.
