Manual code entry

Step 1: Turn on the equipment that you want to control (TV, DVD, Cable Box, Soundbar, etc.).

Step 2: Press the device button ("TV", "DVD", "CBL", "AUX", etc.) and the "OK/SEL" button simultaneously for 3 seconds. The corresponding device LED will turn on indicating that it is ready to be programmed. The LED will remain on for 20-30 seconds. The next step must be entered while the LED is on.

Step 3: Point the remote control toward the equipment and enter the 3 digit code assigned to your brand. If there is more than one 3 digit number listed for your brand, try one code number at a time until your equipment turns off.

Step 4: Store the code by pressing the same device button you pressed in Step 2 once again. The device LED will blink twice to confirm that the code has been stored.

Note:

  • Even if your equipment turns off in step 3, you should verify that you have entered the correct code. Press the "POWER" button once. The equipment should turn back on. Try other functions on the remote control (e.g., Volume, Mute). If any of the functions do not operate as they should, repeat Step 3 using the next code from the brand list.
 

Auto Code Search

If none of the 3 digit codes assigned to your brand of equipment works or the code table does not list your brand, you can try the following:

Step 1: Turn on the equipment that you want to control (TV, DVD, Cable Box, Soundbar, etc.).

Step 2: Press the device button ("TV", "DVD", "CBL", "AUX", etc.) and the "OK/SEL" button simultaneously for 3 seconds. The corresponding device LED will turn on indicating that it is ready to be programmed. The LED will remain on for 20-30 seconds. The next step must be entered while the LED is on.

Step 3: Press the "CH+" or "CH-" button one at a time or keep it pressed. The remote will emit a series of Power ON/OFF code signals. Release the "CH+" or "CH-" button as soon as your equipment turns off.

Step 4: Store the 3-digit code by pressing the same device button you pressed in Step 2 once again. The device LED will blink twice to confirm that the code has been stored.

Note:

  • Even if your equipment turns off in step 3, you should verify that you have entered the correct code. Press the "POWER" button once. The equipment should turn back on. Try other functions on the remote control (e.g., Volume, Mute). If any of the functions do not operate as they should, repeat the instructions from Step 3 to continue the Auto Search Method.

Code Retrieval

Step 1: Press the appropriate device and the "OK/SEL" buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds. The device LED will turn on for 20-30 seconds. The next step must be performed while the LED is on.

Step 2: Press the "INFO" button. The device LED will blink a number of times indicating the number of each digit for the code. Each digit is separated by a one second interval of the LED being off.

Example:

One blink, (pause) three blinks, (pause) eight blinks indicates the code number 138. Note: Ten blinks indicates the number 0.
