I have a Haier TDC1314S (13" TV/DVD combo). I am looking for a replacement remote or the remote code for my RCA universal remote (RCU310BB) or a recommendation for a different universal remote that will work. I have found hits on this board that recommend some codes and in some cases they do work with the RCA remote but only for the on/off functions and mute. Channel, volume, etc..do not work. Some hits also mention that Insignia or Advent remotes might work with this TV/DVD.

Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks

Where did you find those suggested setup codes? And what setup codes were they?

Knowing which signals work for on/off and mute would get us very close to knowing what the whole code set is. Otherwise, the only Haier TV IR data I found is one JP1 upgrade for a different model.

I looked at RCA's online list of setup codes for the RCU310BB and see no obvious pattern relating it to the UEI setup code numbers (that are normally discussed in this forum). I expect that means the RCU310BB is not a UEI model nor even licenses the setup code database from UEI. But given the list of their setup codes by brand we probably can guess at the code set for whatever setup code(s) you found that have on/off and mute work.

Thanks John. A couple of codes that worked with the RCA remote were 140 and 191. I say worked in that the on/off and mute buttons worked correctly. However with these codes other buttons did not work. for example Volume+ took me to the setup menu (while Volume- worked fine). Number pad works but turns channel immediately after hitting one number (for example entering 25 takes me to channel 2). I'm not familair with "JP1". Thanks

TV/dvd combos usually use a dvd codeset, so searching tv codes usually fails. Problem with most non-UEI remotes is even if you did find a working dvd code, you can never get the vol comands, since on most universals the vol commands come from either tv or a audio source, not a vcr or dvd code.

Thanks. Can you recommend a universal remote that might work? Or can you recommend a resource that might carry OEM remotes for the Haier TDC1314S? Thanks again

You can get the oem remote here:

As for a universal I suggest either a One-For-All urc-6820, 8820, or 10820.

A couple of codes that worked with the RCA
remote were 140 and 191.

That told me less than I expected. In the RCA list, 140 is just listed for Hitachi and 191 is listed for Emerson, Orion and Sansui.

In an OFA list, the only setup codes in common among Emerson, Orion and Sansui are setup codes for Philips RC5 protocol, device 0.

If that is it then lots of other setup codes should also partially work. But if that were it, I'd expect the digits to work perfectly. I don't get the instant change after single digit symptom.

I'm not familair with "JP1".

It is a cable and associated free software for programming some OneForAll remotes (and rare models of a few other brands that are made by the manufacturer of OneForAll). With that you can program the remote to generate whatever signals you want, as long as you can somehow determine what signals you want.

It sounds like the set of signals is a rearrangement of some common set (probably RC5:0, but even if not RC5:0, something common) so it shouldn't be hard with an OFA remote to find a partially working setup code.

Even without a JP1 cable, most OFA remotes allow "KeyMoves" that allow you to rearrange buttons and add new ones (by advanced codes) within a code set (such as RC5:0).

So it is very likely you could get this working right with a OneForAll remote and end up with a good universal remote at less than the cost (but more effort) than buying a third party replacement for the exact original remote.

If you're not going to try JP1 programming the models I recommend are the same as Edmund just recommended.

If you are going to try JP1, the best choice is to get the 8910 and JP1 cable together from Rob. See his page at:
