In today's day and age, having a television remote control is absolutely essential to comfortable TV watching. No one wants to get up and change the channel or turn up the volume or turn the volume down manually when they are watching TV. Instead, this is all done from the comfort of your own sofa. The problem comes when you lose the remote control that came with your television. Then, you may be left wondering where to get a replacement. This is a common problem among all TV owners, and if you are a Panasonic TV owner who needs a remote control, you should carefully explore your options.
One of the first options when looking for a remote for your Panasonic TV is to contact Panasonic directly. You can find both a customer service telephone number and a customer service email address for your country right on the Panasonic's website.
Panasonic service number Call the Panasonic service number and provide the information about the model of your TV. Let the representative know that you are interested in a replacement TV remote control for that particular model number. There is generally going to be a charge, including shipping, to send the remote to you. However, you won't have to worry about trying a bunch of TV remote controls to find one that works if you get the one right from Panasonic, which was meant for your TV.
Get a universal remote
If you do not want to get the exact same remote from Panasonic, if they no longer have the remote or if buying it is cost-prohibitive, then your next option is to consider getting all-in-one remote. These are remote controls that are designed to work multiple TV and video components.
Working with different brands Since they are meant to work with multiple components, you can usually program them to work with different brands or teach them to work with your specific brand. You can buy these at almost any store including drug stores and electronics stores. Some are very simple and will cost under $10 or so. Others can be very complex and you can program them on computers. Things like the Philips Pronto, for example, can cost several hundred dollars, but is a complete remote.
You can also check Ebay to see if anyone is selling the remote for your particular TV. Someone may have an extra or may have a broken TV and just want to get rid of the remote.
