RC65 remote and Proscan 32 inch LED tv model PLDED3273A-B

Just bought this TV and would love to being able to use the DirecTV remote to control the volume and turn the TV on and off but so far all attempts have been futile.

 

I've tried a whole lot of codes and also tried scanning but nothing seems to work.

 

I understand that some remotes have a newer chip in them that supports newer TVs. Not sure if there is a newer remote than the oen I have which is RC65.

a failed codesearch is very good proof there isn't a code to find, sorry it happens.

 

just in case try searching by volume, with tv on, volume up but muted:

 

1. tv

2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release

3. enter 9 9 1

4. enter 1

5. press and release VOL UP key

6. point the remote at the tv, keep pressing and releasing the CH UP key, if and when the volume changes

7. press SELECT to lock in code

 

rememer there are over 300 brands of tv, many having more than one code, give it time. Do not use the ON & OFF keys to determine if particular code works or not, test ALL keys. the ON & OFF keys don't work with many top of the line brands.

Alright, there is nothing more than can be done, time for an aftermarket solution, learning universal remote, it probably won't have preset code either. So you use the tv remote to teach the aftermarket remote the commands one at a time.

Don't know what happened to my posts on this subject, but I just purchased a Seiki 32" TV and had problem getting RC65 operating all functions (could not change volume). I used your volume method for getting code and it worked on this TV. Gave up on the Proscan.

I recently ran accross a couple of these TVs while in the field. I was able to program an RC65 remote to both of them. The code that seems to work best is 12051. If TV Input button does not work use Mute + Select and 960 to get that working. Hope this helps!!

Thanks, troubled31707, but neither code worked, seem to need a 4 digit number. The way I was entering codes was to put RC65 switch to TV, press and hold both MUTE and SELECT until green light blinks 2 times, enter code #, press select and green light should blink 4 times, if accepted. Neither 12051 nor 960 were accepted. Am I doing it right? What is TV input button?

Program the remote by moving the mode selector to TV. Mute + Select until LED flashes twice. Type in 5 Digit code (LED will flash twice if code accepted). Test volume, on, off and Input (top left button on remote) buttons on the remote. TV should respond to all of them. If so you are done move mode selector back to DTV mode. If the TV Input button does not change the inputs on your TV (for example to watch a DVD) you will need to use the mute + select buttons on the remote and type in 960 to enable the TV Input button while in TV mode.

If the LED flashes 4 times that means it has deactivated a feature such as the TV Input button, or on the RC65R series remotes RF mode. When you are programming the remote the LED should only flash twice at any time.

For the proscan:

1. TV

2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release

3. enter 1 0 1 7 8 or 1 0 0 5 6

when testing the codes, try ALL keys, not just the tv ON & OFF .

Both numbers were accepted, LED flashed 2 times, but TV didn't respond to either, neither VOL or TV Input.

I was at my neighbor's house last evening and they got DIRECTV a couple months after I did and have a different remote, RC71. Do you think the RC71 has the code for controlling my Proscan TV? Will the RC71 work with my directv receiver, HR44-500?

The RC71 remote control shound have come with your HR44 receiver. Also if you have C41 clients you should have the same for those. Give DirecTV a call or flag down a tech in your area. Either way you should be able to get on for free as it is the rekote you are supposed to have with that box.

I talked to tech that installed my Directv and he said that I need to talk to corporate. Directv customer service told me that if I couldn't program my tv with RC65 I wouldn't be be able to with RC71 either. Suggested I buy a universal remote at Radio Shack.

The RC71 will work on IR only with the C31. However you won't be able to program your TV. Getting a universal remote control is a good idea

I think I'll continue to use the 2 remote controls for this tv. Thanks to all for your input. I will keep a copy of this thread for future reference should I decide to purchase another universal remote.

The RC71 will not work as designed with the C31 client it will however work the a C41 client. I would have a service call set up. An RC65X or RC65RX should be used with the C31 client. I am a field tech and have programmed a remote to this brand of TV...when it comes down to it the tech that was out at your house should have programmed the remote to work properly with your TV.

The folks over the phone are good people, however sometimes the information they have doesn't match real world applications. Have a tech come over to your house. We have techs that roll 7 days a week so you can schedule for your day off.

The tech that installed Directv did program the remotes with the TVs I had at the time of installation.  I purchased 2 new hd tvs that  work with the C31 clients, one being the Proscan that can't be controlled by the RC65. I'll continue to use 2 remotes on this tv.

There's no way for DirecTV to "swap" your C31 for a C41.  Their equipment system treats them as "identical".  If you must have a C41, you can buy from an authorized dealer, like Solid Signal, and negotiate with DirecTV to return your C31.
