I have a 220 with a lost remote. I want to use the phone app, but it can't see the unit. When I switch the 220 on, I see it light up the corresponding port on my network switch for a moment, but then it goes dark again. I suspect the 220 is configured to use WiFi (not my WiFi, mind you), and obviously I can't change this because I don't have the remote. So then I thought if I could do a factory reset it would probably default back to ethernet. Unfortunately it seems that the geniuses at Panasonic elected to use a button sequence reliant on the remote for factory reset, and again, I don't have the remote.

My Panasonic TV has a TV/BD toggle switch on it, but in BD mode it seems that the only commands the 220 understands are Power and Play, not the all important arrow/enter cluster (or the buttons required for a factory reset). The TV predates the 220, so I guess that's no surprise.

Is there anything I haven't thought of?

Factory reset won't help anyway since it's not enabled by default. If you have any other universal remote, from a cable box for example, it will work. Otherwise, you can get an old cable remote from eBay for about $3.

If a Panasonic V20 remote can't do it, then why would an old cable remote be able to?

Today I managed to get the enter key to work via an old Pioneer receiver remote (using it's code for Panasonic DVD players), but no arrow keys so it's useless. What I don't understand is why I can't even get enter with the V20 remote. The Pioneer remote is way older than both the V20 and the 220.

Because Panasonic TV remotes are designed to control TVs and just power (and possibly input/channel/vol) for a secondary device. Cable remotes are truly universal.

I'm just offering my expertise and a very cheap solution known to work 100%. The same advice I gave in the thread below, 7 years ago still applies. All Panasonic disc players use the same codes which are present in most universal remotes. Those made by UEI are the most flexible and programmable and can perform absolutely every possible Panasonic function. See my signature for more details and lists of compatible universal remotes. If you need more codes, I can post them. I have codes for nearly all Panasonic players. I have probably posted them in other Panasonic threads years ago if you'd rather search on your own.

If you decide to obtain such a remote, please post back so that I can confirm whether it will work and to what extent. The layperson generally won't be able to tell which remotes are UEI made or not. But f you've ever had cable or satellite, you've used a UEI remote.

My Yamaha rxv775 remote brings up all the menu and arrow keys in HDMI-CEC. Not as cheap as buying a new remote, but....

A: Yamaha RX-V775. Bose 401 mains, 301 Series III surrounds, Yamaha NS-C444 center, Hsu VTF-2 Mk4.
V: Samsung UN40ES6150, Panasonic DMP-BDT215, Yamaha DVD-S550.
