Universal remote code for Medion TV/DVD

Posted in Technicalon Feb 11, 2009

My Medion TV and DVD

I have a Medion TV/DVD combo that I picked up at some black Friday sale a number of years ago.  It has been an OK TV, well used, with a few little quirks.

With the Digital TV conversion happening soon, I purchased an RCA DTV converter box and hooked it up to my Medion TV.  The problem is that the converter box came with its own remote and my TV wasn’t listed in its list of universal remote codes.

The universal remote codes in the converter manual were all three digits long, so I started putting codes into the remote starting with 001.  I eventually found a code that works sufficiently good; it works for the volume controls and the TV power button.

The code is 191.  It really only took me 20-30 minutes to get up that high, which especially wasn’t that bad because I was watching TV at the same time.  I’m just glad that it didn’t turn out to be a higher numbered code.

I have a Medion 13″ Color TV/DVD Combo, MD 6421 set. The TV works fine, however the DVD with disk installed and set on DVD control, it does not recognize disk and states on screen, NO DISK. Where do I get this repaired?

@George – A TV repair will cost you more than buying a new cheap DVD player. TV repair was a big thing in the 70s, but now days it is more affordable to throw away and buy new.

Thanks for this info! I was able to work backwards from your code to find that if you use the equivalent Advent brand instead it will work to program my DirecTV remote.

Where can I get a remote control for a Medion TV/DVD Model MD 6421. On the back it says it was made Oct. 2003 MSN# 50010231. I bought it new at a grocery store but I don’t know what happened to the remote. I have it hooked up to cable in a bedroom. The channels don’t change manually for some reason. I would like to purchase a remote.

It may not be your remote, but the remote sensor.(small red light that comes on in the spot next to your on/off button on front of the tv. Can any one tell me how to fix this?
