I have a Sony Trinitron TV and bought a universal remote but it wont work?

Someone gave me a Sony Trinitron TV but lost the remote. I have a cablevision box but wanted to buy a remote for the actual TV. I went to Radio Shack and bought a universal remote. I followed all the instructions and the back up instructions but nothing is working. Im wondering if its because a universal remote is not compatable with it or if something else is wrong please help

    Get the Brand of your Remote and try entering that along with the Model Number in the Search Box at the top of the page and look through everything that comes up.The first few Postings will offer a Code Book for sale.Skip them and keep looking and eventually you should find a site that has the Codes for free along with some ads.If that doesn't work, try http://www.remotecentral.com http://www.XDIV.com/remotes http://www.universalremotecontrolcodes.c… The last one will have a few choices to try.Hope this helps !

    I personally have never had a so called universal remote that I have been entirely happy with.

    My father in law lost his remote and we got him a new OEM remote here that was just exactly like the original. Here is where we bought the replacement. http://www.replacementremotes.com/

    There are also programmable remotes and some, such as those from logitech, that are programmable over the internet that I have been very happy with.
