strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

Just purchased a Westinghouse LCD TV. Looked up the codes and found the correct code. All was well, or so I thought. To power on or off the TV, I need to hit the TV button and then the power button. The 'all on'  button will not power the TV. Makes no sense to me because that button just cycles through the devices. Live chat was absolutely no help. Eventried another remote to no avail. Any ideas?

I suggest not using the "All On" button.

Try using another code.  Sometimes the first code found doesn't provide all the needed functionality.  These are the codes I found: 10885, 11577, 10890, 10889, 11282, 10451, 10000

 

 

Also, check the remote battery.  On my remote when the battery is low ALL ON flashes the light on the remote but the tv does not come on.

[ Edited ]

i just bought a westinghouse 46" lcd model # VR-4625 and none of the 7 remote codes listed in the codes book or online will program my comcast remote to power on/off the tv or change the volume. i have tried 2 different comcast remotes [grey with the red ok button] but still it is not working, and i even went today to get a new remote with new fresh batteries. i am on live chat right now trying to figure this out. i have tried unlocking my remote with the 993 code and the 994 code, as the agent told me to do, but still nothing. I have tried these codes: 10885, 11577, 10889, 10890, 11282, 10451, 10000. it's GOT to be an issue with the software of the remote and westinghouse brand tvs. the remote that came with the tv works but it's annoying to have to use 2 remotes, and even worse that it seems like comcast remotes aren't even compatible with westinghouse tvs.

 

is anyone else with this brand or model tv experiencing this problem?

Re: strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

I found that the code 11178 for LG tvs works! my power on/off tv button and volume now work on my comcast remote for the westinghouse tv.

 

looks like comcast needs to change their code listing.

Re: strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

I got a LCD Westinghouse television VR-4625. Used the codes for the remote that Comcast provided. Didn't work with volume, on,off, or mute. Called Comcast, no help. Searched online.....these codes worked. Remote with grey "ok" button.....0178 Remote with red "ok" button.....11265 Hope this helps.

Re: strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

Just got a Westinghouse TV. The remote won't program with ANY of the codes comcast listed. Called Comcast they said to return the remote. Read thread on RemoteCentral.com, apparently some of the Sony and Samsung codes work. My programmed with 10178 the first one I tried. Maybe Comcast could update their codes for their customers so we don't have to go searching the web to figure out how to work their equipment.

Cable Box does not respond while westinghouse tv on

Any body knows what could cause the cable box to not respond while the westinghouse tv is on, and as soon as tv is off, cable box then responds

Re: strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

Ok i just figured out the problem of box not responding while tv is on. I put the box underneath the table where tv is on, which probably blocks signal coming from tv. It works perfectly now. I guess the signal from the tv somehow interferes with the signal going to the box. Put a barrier between box and tv and problem gpes away. I got the westimghouse vr-5525z. I used the 11240 code for remote and it works to control tv.

Re: strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

There was a report here about Viso being on, caused Remote not to work with Comcast cable box.  Something to do with the backlight LED interfering with the remote's signal?

Re: strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

Same issue with same TV.  Don't bother buying a Logitech Harmony Remote - that is actually worse than the Comcast remote because the power button doesn't even work.

 

Any resolution yet?

Re: strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

I had the same problems for model VR-4625 46'' LCD. None of the codes on the comcast web worked. I found 11265 and 11240 however they did not completely control the TV. Then I found this code 10178 which works okay. I think comcast should address this issues.

Re: strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

Some newer LCD TV sets can interfere with the remote control frequencies when they warm up. You may need to adjust the TV set's backlighting setting, check your TV’s manual for how to do that.

This code works with the "All on" button on my Westinghouse VR-3730. Other codes work, but now with the "All on" button.

Re: strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

When the remote stops working with the TV on, but remote works with TV off, the problem is IR interference from the TV. Try adjusting the picture quality or turning off different video features until the problem is resolved. Otherwise you must shield the cable box from the TV screen like under a shelf or the like.

Re: strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

Did you ever get this resolved?  i'm having same problem with a new Westinghouse TV that I bought because I was having this same problem on my old Panasonic tv.....The Panasonic had been working fine with the DTA remote for several months, but quit responding to the Xfinity remote unexpectedly.  Comcast told me the DTA was bad and to exchange it for a new at the local office...which I did, and even with a new DTA and new remote, the Panasonic still would not turn on/off with remote.  Comcast then said problem was with my TV, which is why I bought the new Westinghouse.  I donated the Panasonic to a charity because it still worked fine, except for the Xfinity remote control problem.  Now I find myself with the same problem, and a new TV.  Is there any help out there?

Re: strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

Am going crazy!  Have tried apx. 16 codes. Maybe 4-5 of them will allow me to change volume, channel and turn T-V off. BUT won't let me turn it back ON! What gives?

Re: strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

Using the LG code 11178 worked like a charm. Thanks for the tip. I had tried all the Westinghouse and White Westinghouse codes as well as the code search feature to no avail.

Re: strange remote issue with Westinghouse LCD

My Westinghouse T.V. programmed somewhat. The mute button turns it on/off. The volume button is the 4 button the channel nitro is the five button. I called Westinghouse and they were no help. Took my name and number and said someone would contact me. If someone know how to change the input to HDMI on the comcast remote that would be great.
