what universal remote works with rca 55 in rtu5540?

ok, we have a 55 inch 4k rca tv, model rtu5540-c and have tried two rca and one ge branded universal remotes, none of these three worked with the tv. they worked with the set top box, bluray player and to my shock, my xbox one(all the way across the house no less)

so, question becomes, without breaking the bank...eg no higher than $60 if possible..what universal remote will work, no questions asked, with this 4k tv?

Hello xradierv17,

 

Universal remotes can really simplify your home theater experience. It’s discouraging to that you’re having trouble finding one that can work with your 55” 4K RCA TV.

 

Have you tried a Logitech one? I personally use this one. I attempted to use Logitech’s Device Compatibility finder, but it seems to error out on the full model number of RTU5540-C. If your TV uses IR it should be compatible. I’m sorry that the two RCA and GE branded ones didn’t pan out for you.

 

Please let me know if the Logitech does work out for you!

I just wondered if you found a remote that works for the RCA rtu5540-c television?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hello Nevin,

 

Thank you so much for posting to our community with the same question as xraiderv17. I’m sorry that he didn’t provide an update sharing if the Logitech option I shared with him worked, or not. I’d be happy to point you in alternative direction.

 

You may have to reach out to RCA directly for recommendations since the Logitech code list doesn’t include rtu5540-c, but shares it may work. RCA can be reached by calling 888-977-6722.

Hello friends,

 

Thanks for sharing that you’re all still having trouble with finding a universal remote that will work for your RCA 55” TV ! I know that can super frustrating when one remote can make things a whole lot simpler.

 

Have you guys reached out to RCA to see if they have recommendations at this time? Sometimes they may know which products are compatible. You can reach out to RCA by giving them a call at (800) 968-9853. Hopefully, they’d be able to make a recommendation for you to try.

 

Kindly,
