Tip & How-To about RCA DIRECTV Satellite Remote Control

Why Am I Unable To Program The RCA Remote Control To Operate My Components

Why am I unable to program the RCA remote control to operate a component? Why am I unable to program the RCA remote control to operate a component? If you are unable to program the remote control to operate a component, review the following information:

Compatibility
If none of the programming procedures work, the universal remote control may not be compatible with your components, based on the type of infrared technology and the age of the components. Some RCA universal remote controls will only work with components manufactured after 1990.

Distance
If you are testing the remote control after you have entered a code, you may be too far away from the component or you may not have the remote control aimed directly at the component. Because the remote control uses infrared (IR) technology to communicate with components, there must be an unobstructed path between the remote control and the IR sensor on the component.

Code Entry Methods
If the Direct Code Entry method was used to enter the codes for your brand and the unit is still not functioning properly, try one of the automatic code search methods instead. During automatic code search, the remote searches for the correct code to program.

Modes
For the remote control to know which component you wish to operate, you must put the remote control in the correct mode by pressing the corresponding component button.

Combo Units
To program the remote control to operate combo units, such as TV/VCR’s, TV/DVD’s, or TV/VCR/DVD’s, use the combo codes in the Code List to program the individual corresponding component buttons. Once programmed successfully, the TV button controls the TV functions on your unit, and the DVD or VCR button controls the DVD or VCR functions, respectively. The codes in the combo section should be tried first, using the Direct Code Entry method on the TV and DVD or VCR buttons. If this is unsuccessful, use one of the Code Search methods to program your combo unit.

Batteries
Make sure the batteries are new and properly installed.

    Things You'll Need:
    • RCA Universal Remote Control
    1. 1 Turn on the component you want to program.
    2. 2 Press and release the component button on your remote that corresponds to the component you want the remote to operate (TV, VCR, etc.). The illuminated ON-OFF button will turn on and remain on.
    3. 3 Press both the component and the ON-OFF buttons. The illuminated ON-OFF button will turn off, and then will come back on.
    4. 4 Release both buttons after the ON-OFF button turns back on. The button should remain illuminated.
    5. 5 Press and release the PLAY button. If the component does not respond after five seconds, continue to press the PLAY button every five seconds until the component turns off.
    6. 6 Press and release the REVERSE button when the component turns off, then wait to see if the component turns on again.
    7. 7 Press and release the STOP button to save the new code.
    Tips & Warnings
    • Each time you press the PLAY button in Step 5, the ON-OFF button blinks ten times and a list of 10 codes is sent to your component. This process continues until all of the code lists have been searched. If the component has not turned off after all codes have been searched, the ON-OFF button blinks four times, turns off, and the Auto Code Search is exited.
    • If you do not press the STOP button at the end, the new code will not be saved.

    how to program a rca rcr451 remote


    1. Manually turn on the component
    you want the remote to control
    (TV, VCR, DVD, satellite receiver
    or cable box).
    2. Locate the enclosed Code Lists.
    Find the list for the component
    you wish to program. Find your
    component’s brand. You will see a
    listing of four-digit codes for each
    brand. If your brand isn’t listed,
    use the Manual Code Search
    method to program the remote
    control. (Refer to page 6 for
    Manual Code Search method.)
    3. Press and hold the component key
    (TV, VCR, DVD, SAT·CBL) you
    wish to program. The LED
    indicator light turns on and remains
    on. If you release the component
    key any time during the Direct
    Code Entry procedure, the LED
    indicator light blinks four times,
    and the process is exited.
    4. While holding down the component
    key, consult the Code Lists for the
    four-digit code that corresponds to
    your component’s brand and use the
    number keys (0-9) on the keypad to
    enter it. While you are pressing the
    numbers, the LED indicator
    light turns off.
    5. After the fourth number is entered,
    the LED indicator light turns on. At
    this time, release the component key.
    If the LED indicator light turns off,
    you have entered a valid code and
    have followed the correct procedure
    for Direct Code Entry.
    If you enter a code number that is
    not in the Code Lists or you do not
    follow all of the steps for Direct
    Code Entry, the LED indicator light
    blinks four times when the
    component key is released. This is an
    indication that a programming error
    has occurred. In that case, repeat the
    Direct Code Entry process from step
    3 and try the next code listed.
    Throughout the programming
    of each key, be sure to keep the remote
    pointed at the IR sensor of the
    component you are currently
    programming the remote to control.
    6. To confirm that the component key
    is programmed with the correct
    code for maximum functionality,
    test the component. Attempt to
    control a variety of the
    component’s functions with the
    remote. If some of the features of
    your components do not work, try
    programming the remote with a
    different code in the list until you
    find the code that allows the
    remote to control the majority of
    your component’s functions.
    Different codes can provide
    different levels of functionality.
