Need remote code for DVD player

The remote for my Insignia DVD player got damged when my kids spilled water on it. I tried to use my Comcast DVR remote to control the Insignia DVD player but the code doesn't work. I bought another Universal remote but it doesn't work either (doesn't even have a code for Insignia). The model of my Insignia DVD player is NS-1UCDVD. I've searched all over for the remote code but can't seem to find one. The code that was recommended in the comcast manual is 21268 but that didn't work. Any help will be appreciated.

Hello wp-jaz,

 

Welcome to Community @ Insignia!  I consulted our technical team and found out that, unfortunately, there are no universal remote control codes available for our DVD players.

 

Sincerely,

John

Re: Need remote code for DVD player

So you mean, the only way I can use my DVD player is to purchase another Insignia Controller for my unit... 

 

I was able to program basic function with one FIOS controller 1 year ago - now that I have update my box, I am unable to repeat this achievement... I find if very disturbing that I now have a paper weight with no standard industry compatibility. (I guess you get what you pay for...) - I only hope the new firmware update resolves this issue...

Re: Need remote code for DVD player

Hi,

 

I stumbled across this thread while searching for the code for my brand new Insignia NS-DVD1-A dvd player. I wanted to program my universal remote to work with it. After reading this, I almost lost heart, but...

 

as it stands, you MAY be able to program your universal remote correctly. I have a Philips universal remote and tried all of the Insignia codes. None worked. Then I tried a code search by brand...nothing. Then I followed the Philips instructions for doing a code search by device. I had to go through 141 codes before hitting paydirt, but I finally found one that worked.

 

My advice is: follow the instructions for your remote for a code search by device and see if you can find one that works.

Re: Need remote code for DVD player

Limozine - Thank you for your input to this knowledge seeking post...

 

Posting to this support forum (for me) was the last case option - I followed all instructions for my Remote and also searched the FIOS support forums.  There is no support my particular unit; outside of purchasing another remote unit directly from the vendor. - and that is a upsetting option...

 

 Unfortunately, If I have to make a purchase - It will be for a complete whole unit with industry standard support. Thank you again for you insight....

Re: Need remote code for DVD player

I think there must be a universal remote code for my Blu-ray Disc Player NS-BDLIVE01. In order for the Insignia remote to work, I would think it has a code hard-wired or ??. The factory/engineering people know the code. Who makes the my player for Insignia? That manufacturer codes possibly could be used. Thanks. Bill

Hi rosebill4558 and welcome to the forum.

 

As explained by John, there are no codes to program a universal remote with our DVD/Blu-ray players.

Rest assured we are passing the feedback along to our product managers for future products.

 

Regards,

Gonza

Re: Need remote code for DVD player

I just bought an Insignia TV and was surprised that the Insignia DVD player code (21268) given in the manual didn't work for programming the remote!

 

But, I dug around and read on another forum that this particular DVD player (NS-1UCDVD) is just a rebadged Zenith DVD player. I was able to program my remote with a Zenith code: 20591.

Re: Need remote code for DVD player

I'm looking to see if there is a universal remote code for my NS-DVD1-A with the comcast digital's universal  remote. Like most of you I too am having no luck finding a code that will work. 

 

Anyone out there with a suggestion or solution?  perhaps an old code?

 

Thanks.
