Can't program a RCA451 universal remote

I dropped the remote yesterday and it has not worked since then. I have also tried to reprogram the remote to our Magnavox TV using the codes that I have found on-line with no luck. I even tried using the codes for a RCA450 and that did not work either. I do not have the original instructions that came with the remote either. PLEASE, CAN ANYONE HELP! I am going crazy with this thing!!!

SOURCE: need codes for the RC450 remote

took me awhile but I figured it out


Put your TV/DVD/VCR on
hold in what you want to program TV/DVD/VCR BUTTON
(you dont need codes or anything)
then while holding in what you want to program (TV, DVD, VCR) hold in ON/OFF
both at the same time

when the light comes on and stays on
keep hitting ON/OFF BUTTON
do it slow, when the TV turns off hit the STOP button at the bottom
then hit the button you just programed
then hit the ON/OFF button, the TV/DVD/VCR will turn on

if it doesnt work, repeat. make sure you hit the stop button when the TV/DVD/VCR shuts off, if you hit it an extra time while the TV/DVD/VCR is off it wont work.

took me about 30 mins to figure it out.

I lost my codes too, but I wanted to help all you other people too.. now since I helped you.. check my band out...

If you are using a universal remote the program is lost anytime the batteries are removed or sometimes when the remote is dropped the program is lost.
If that is the case you only have to reprogram it.

Purchase a replacement universal remote control and follow the instructions to program it. Available codes are stored in the remote.
If you wish to obtain a replacement Funai remote, search online for sources.

I always have to reprogram my prestiage remote why do i always hav to reprogram my prestiage remote?

Hi, its probably getting de-programmed somehow. Either batteries are not making good connection. or you are pressing the wrong combination of buttons every so often, causing remote to de-program. Try buying a more expensive universal remote (they do not loose programming), or the original remote for you unit.

I have tried to program my FiOS Verizon remote control to recognize my Proscan HD TV so that I don't have to use two remote devices. I don't like using two remotes and my Proscan remote control is so...

Thank you. I did solve my problem with some diligence. The instructions from Verizon were correct. I realized that there are two buttons on the Verizon universal remote that look alike - the "play" arrow and the "fast forward" double arrow. Once I used both of these buttons in the proper sequence, reprogramming the TV remote with the new code worked.
