I recently purchased a TCL TV on the Black Friday sales.  While I can change channels and go into apps and demand sections, the remote won’t turn the tv on or off or alter the volume.  I’ve tried all the codes provided by TELUS even the “if these don’t work, try this code.”  Nothing works.  I’ve even tried some codes from the TCL site itself.  It’s rather annoying having to go back and forth between two remotes.  

 

It’s a S425-CA 4 Series TV.

@BCTeacher  You can try the codes here. If they fail submit your info to ruwido. If those fail look at item 10 here. To “scan” for a code, it’s a slow process but may find something.

 

While the remote generally controls most brands there are times the code may only control volume, power off and off vice versa. If those options fail you can look at purchasing a Logitech harmony that will future proof you.

 

TCL is only starting to become popular in Canada and North America. Generally IR codes rarely change with manufacturer, not sure about TCL and what ruwido has.

Hi, were you able to find the TCL TV Slimline 2 remote codes? I am also in the same dilemma as you were wondering if you are able to solve the problem?

Your only options is to try what I suggested below. Otherwise will be two remote or a universal remote purchase.

Codes 1724 and 1544 both worked for my series 6 TCL. Basics only... Power and volume.

I purchased a TCL Roku tv (55S421-CA) also. After trying all the codes I could find on-line I finally went to telus and swapped my slimline 1 for a slimline 2.

I entered the 0029 code for "all other brands" and held down the TV button for about 5 minutes, and finally had success. This might have worked on the slimline 1 also, but I probably ran out of patience.

Code 1544 works for my Series 4 TCL purchased in Dec 2019.  Thanks for the codes.

I have seen a reply that 1544 works with slimline 2 and works on my tcl 50s425 purchased in 2020 (but does not work with slimline 1)

@JthoodThe reason the 2020 TCL TV doesn't work with the Slimline 1 remote is that the Slimline 1 was released many many years ago. The new TCL TV likely uses a code that is newer than the ones they were using at the time. The original Slimline remote codes are different than the Slimline 2 codes. The original Slimline codes for TCL are:

 

2088      2089      1840      1520      1434      1340
