Q:

Do I need to program a new remote for my TV model SRT2127S?

A:

It’s best to start with the obvious and eliminate a possible cause one by one. I would start with the batteries. Make sure that you can operate another device with the batteries and that they are installed correctly.

Next take the remote and try all functions. If you cannot turn the power on, turn it on from the front and try all functions, you might find that only a certain key is defective, which if everything else is working might be another defective remote.

Once we established that the remote is not working at all, we could also see if it is not transmitting anything. The light emitted by the remote is a wavelength not visible to the human eye, but is picked up by optical sensors. If you have a camera phone, a digital camera or camcorder you can point it at the remote while you press a button and see a light then we know the remote itself is not dead.

Once you know the remote is actually emitting a signal, eliminate the DirecTV box. It is rare but noise from devices can interfere with the remote signal. Try turning on the TV with the box off. Fluorescent lighting can have a light that does the same. If that’s in the room, try it with that light off.

If you run through that and everything checks ok I would start to suspect the IR receiver in the TV. There’s a possibility I am missing something but it would not be programming the TV remote since these remotes do not do that. This is under the assumption that you replaced the TV remote with Sylvania remote for your model TV, not a universal.

If you run through that list and find

Q:

Where can I get the TV code for a Sylvania model SRT2127S?

A:

When someone asks for TV remote codes, they generally want to program a new remote to work with their TV. The TV "code" is different depending on what remote you are trying to use. I recommend you look on the remote itself and with that model number you can look up Sylvania codes to try with it. Not all universals may control all functions. I have a Sylvania in a room with a cable box that I was able to find a code that turns it off and on, but does not control the volume for some reason. If you need help finding the codes for your remote, just ask another question with the remote model number included with the TV model.

Q:

new remote channel and volume button lights up when power pressed, nothing with tv help SRT2127S

A:

I can try to help you but there are some things I am unsure of. You said you purchased a new remote. Did you purchase a Sylvania remote made specifically for this TV or did you purchase a universal remote? I show the direct replacement part for this TV to be N0110UD.

If you purchased a universal remote, one made to work with a lot of TVs then you would need to program it. You will need to follow the instructions provided with the remote to either enter in the code for Sylvania or find it manual through the process listed in the guide. If you need assistance with that then I will need the company that made the remote and the model number of it.

If you have the original and you followed these directions here . If the original is working then it will most likely be the IR receiver inside the set that a technician will have to replace.
