Volume Lock (100020904)

If you primarily use one device for controlling sound (for example a Sound Bar), it's possible to program your ONN 100020904 remote to only control that device when you use the "VOL+", "VOL-" and "Mute" keys.

To lock the volume keys to one device:

Step 1: Hold down the "SETUP" key until the LED under the device key blinks twice.

Step 2: Type in "9" "9" "3". The LED should blink twice.

Step 3: Press the device key for the device to always control volume, for example, "AUDIO". The LED will blink twice. From now on, pressing the "VOL+", "VOL-" or "Mute" keys will always control the programmed device under this key, no matter what mode you're in.

To unlock the volume and return the remote to controlling each device's sound individually:

Step 1: Hold down the "SETUP" key until the LED under the device key blinks twice.

Step 2: Type in "9" "9" "3". The LED should blink twice.

Step 3: Press "VOL-". The LED will blink 4 times and volume is now unlocked.

Learning (100020904)

Your ONN 100020904 remote control can learn any function from any other working remote control. This is a quick and easy one-time setup that allows you to control any IR controlled device you have. It also allows you to add a key or keys that may be missing to a spare key.

To learn functions, the original remote should be placed approximately 2-5 cm from the ONN remote, pointing towards it.

Step 1: Press the device key you want to learn functions onto (e.g., "TV", "STREAM", "STB" "AUDIO", "DVD", etc.).

Step 2: Hold down the "SETUP" key until the LED under the device key blinks twice.

Step 3: Type in "9" "7" "5". The LED should blink twice.

Step 4: Press and release the key you want to learn a function onto (for example the "Power" key). The LED will begin to flash rapidly.

Step 5: Press and release the corresponding key on the original remote, for example "Power". The LED will blink twice to indicate the key has been learned correctly.

Step 6: Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each key you want to learn.

Step 7: When you have learned all the functions you require, press and hold the "SETUP" key until the LED blinks twice.

Notes:

  • Some remotes send commands differently. If you find a function cannot be learned, try holding down the key on the original remote instead of pressing and releasing in step 5.
  • If the LED shows one long blink at step 5, the function was not learned correctly, try again from step 4.

If you want to delete a learned function and return that key to its original state, do the following:

Step 1: Press the device key for the device your learned function operates.

Step 2: Hold down the "SETUP" key until the LED under the device key blinks twice.

Step 3: Type in "9" "7" "6". The LED should blink twice.

Step 4: Press the key you want to reset twice. The LED will blink twice to indicate that the learned function has been deleted.
