Hi,
I've got a Watervue Bathroom waterproof TV model: WV19TCB
Now stuck in standby as remote has stopped working, not batteries.
It's needs a new remote control, but can't find one online?
Purchased a one for all remote control but don't know the code, can anyone help please?
Is Watervue based on another brand like toshiba, panasonic, vestel, JVC ??
if i know then i can try codes for that brand, many thanks.

That's a very niche product so you might struggle to find someone with the same issue here - I would contact the manufacturer.

A quick Google search gives a couple of options (black and white) for replacement, original waterproof remotes - is it neither of these ? You'll need a waterproof remote in a bathroom - I wouldn't have thought a normal remote would last long, with the water and humidity.



That site appears to be the official outlet for those TVs, according to the Watervue site.

This old Amazon link suggests that the screen is made by LG. This doesn't necessarily mean an LG remote code would work, but it's worth a try.

If that doesn't work, then I think your best option would be to contact Watervue directly, due to how unusual this product is. A quick search of AV Forums for 'Watervue', for example, only gives a handful of results - the majority of which are from this thread :D

It might also be worth bearing in mind that, while a faulty remote is probably the most likely cause, it isn't the only one - it could (for example) be the IR receiver in the TV itself that's faulty.

All universal remotes have a code search facility, it will be detailed in the user manual of how to do it.
Basically with the TV switched on and the remote pointing at it it sends a series of standby IR code commands about 1 per second, when the TV switches to standby it's found the correct or similar code. You then try other commands like switching it back on and volume/channel change etc.
