Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.
Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; to which you want set-up codes; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts

I assume you had new batteries in the original remote and that the Universal remote was programmed correctly for your TV.

Are there any lights on the old remote that flash when you press a button? If so, does it light?

If the TV doesn't respond to a remote, and the remote is verified to be in working order, then the infrared sensor in the TV is defective amd needs replaced.

Good Luck,

I most certainly hope that after all this time, you were able to program your remote! But if you have any questions, haven't gotten it working, or have another tv and remote that you would like to program, I am here to help! The link below is a link to instructions for a power scan. The scan scans all of the codes on the tv until it finds the right one for the remote. It sounds tedious, but it is a quick and simple way to get that remote programmed to the tv. This scan works for every DISH remote, and you can use it on any tv, so if you have a tv in the future that you want to program with the DISH, this will help! It's a very handy thing to know!!!!

you can't. You'll need to purchase a new (programmable) remote and program it for your tv.

Cost ? $5-$10

I'm sorry, but the TVM1916F is not digital. You will need a converter box if you have an antenna for your signals.

On later model Sansui tv's, you can bring up the menu by pushing both volume buttons on the front of the set at the same time. After the menu is on the screen, you can navigate using the channel and volume buttons.
