Lost remote for 1985 model RCA

The house we recently bought included a 1985 RCA console tv (modelGLR660T) -remote missing. The cabinet is in lovely shape and it has a nice picture so I would like to use it in the living room but my husband will have a fit if he has to leave his chair to change channels, volume, etc. (LOL)

I already have 5 different universal remotes and none of them will operate this tv. Called RCA, she said the no remote was listed as being available and I should look for a universal that will operate older models. Does anyone know where I could find one?

Also when I hook it up to the cable it recieves most channels fine up to ch19. Will not get in channels in the 20's, 30's or the 90's which our cable co. also uses. BUT it gets ch 27, and 33 which are broadcast channels in our area. Any ideas on why it does this? I can set up through a VCR and recieve all channels fine, but would still like a remote to control volume and on-off.

Finally any ideas where i could get an operating manual?

Thumbs up

Try these sites:



As for the channel selection problem, you have to access the menu to change the antenna from BROADCAST to CABLE-TV in order for the set to receive the cable channels.

As far as the manual, try this site:

I don't know if this is any help, but I have a remote from a 1986
RCA set (don't know the model), that perfectly works my 1994 set
(TX826 chassis). My RCA universal also directly works it. BTW, RCAs (at least the TV and VCR I have), turn on by pressing the TV or VCR button on the remote, and off by pressing the off button.
