Remote programming issue

RC73 is programmed to control Sharp tv. It will turn the TV on and control the volume, but will not turn the tv off. What should I do?

What’s the receiver model? You’ll need to go to Menu, Settings, Remote Setup, and choose TV. Make sure to specify brand as Sharp as well as the EXACT model of the TV to eliminate the amount of codes shown onscreen. You may have to mess around with a few codes until one controls the POWER, VOLUME, and INPUT settings altogether.

If no fix, you can try ordering a new remote from your online DTV account (DIRECTV.com) or online stores like Amazon, eBay, or Solid Signal.
