Can't program TV

I have the s20 remote and for some reason it will no longer control the tv volume. I can still do mostlty everything else, bseides turn off the tv. The remote is no longer programmed to my tv. I have a coby tv. I have tried every manual code with no repsonse and have help down the fast forward button for about an hour in an attempt to auto program. Nothing seems to work. Is there some kind of override code like there was with the old s10 remotes. With the s10 remotes at least when this problem happened i could do the 955 code work around but when trying the volume programming by hitting the volume up button then the On Demand button to put the volume to the tv instead of the reciever(which its currently is controlling) I get nothing most likely meaning it is not programmed to the tv. Once again I have tried the manual codes multiple times and the auto program for at least an hour just sitting there holding the fast forward button. Can anyone help me...

@Sith_Acolyte Is something blocking the IR sensor on the TV?? Perhaps it was wearing out & finally broke.

 

If you cannot get it to work, then there is an s-20 equiv of the 955 "work around".

 

955 assigns the vol control to whatever mode button you select. It over-rides the defaullt of the TV. Or, it brings it back to the TV. In this case the TV must be programmed & you can do that without needing 955. 955 is mostly for when you want non-tv sound.

 

The default for the s-20 is the same for TV but different for soundbar.-

When TV programmed control TV sound

When sound bar programmed control SB sound.

 

So, if TV cannot be programmed the work around is to do the setting vol control & assign vol control to the STB - the green button is the STB selection.

Set the STB sound to 15 as seen on the TV screen

Set the TV sound (using the TV remote or buttons on the TV) to a comfortable level.

While watching you can vary the sound of the STB & hear the result from the TV speakers
