Tip & How-To about Televison & Video

Simple way not to lose remote control codes.

A simple method I've developed to keep my remote codes handy for my universal remotes is this:

- Write the name of the device and it's code as small as possible on a piece of paper. (Or if your handwriting isn't so good print it out in a small but legible font.) Like so:

TV - 1234
VCR - 5678
DVD - 9876

- Take this small piece of paper (fold if necessary) and put it inside the battery compartment of the remote. Now if for some reason your remote should forget it's programming due to bad or replacement batteries, you've got all the codes right there to reprogram the remote instead of having to hunt down the code book which you can never find.

What is the URC-383 Universal Remote Code for Yamaha DVD S700

0281,0274,0210. Try these codes. If you wish to get more details; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Common set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the "device's brand name list" in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts.
Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; that you want set-up code, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Can't program universal remote to control a 2005 Panasonic HDTV 1080i Model #CT-27HL 14J

If code search method too cannot help you, the remote control won't have a setup code to your TV. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service center, or authorized dealer to your device brand.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its user manual. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. If you see the site by "MOSAIC" view, will make surf easier.

how do i program the RCRN04GR universal remote to a sylvania tv?

Here is the proceedings for direct code entry.

Direct Code Entry lets you enter a code from the accompanying

code list for your brand of device. It's not as easy as the other
methods, but it's potentially the fastest method

TIP: Each device key is associated with a type of device-

the TV is preset to search for TVs, SAT•CBL•DTC for satellite

receivers, cable boxes or digital TV converters, DVD•VCR

for DVD players, and DVR•AUX for DVRs. To program a

device key for a different type of device, see the Changing a
Key's Device Type section.

1. Manually turn on the device you
want to contro

2. Find the Code List that came with

the remote. Locate the section for

the type of device you're trying to

program, and find your brand in

that section. Circle the codes for
your brand and keep them handy.

3. Press and hold the device key you want to program (the

POWER key illuminates).

While you're holding down the device key, use your other

hand enter the first five-digit code for your brand in the
code list (the POWER key turns off after the first digit).

4. When you've finished entering

the five-digit code, keep holding

down the device key and look at

the POWER key.

Is the POWER key


YES: You're done! You've programmed this device key.

NO, it blinked four times and turned off: You have

either entered a code number that is not in the code lists

or missed a step in the code entry procedure. Try step 3


Test the remote with the device to make sure the device

key is programmed with the correct code for maximum

functionality. If some features don't work, try a different code

in the list.

Remember to enter the code for future reference in the box

provided in the Code Retrieval section of this manual.

If your brand isn't listed in the code list, use one of the Code

Search methods to program the remote control. (Refer to the

Auto and Manual Code Search methods.)

If you release the device key any time during the Direct Code

Entry procedure, the POWER key blinks four times, and the

process is exited. The last programmed code under the
device key is retained
Codes to check with Sylvania are:
20035, 20081, 20000, 20043, 20593, 21593
11864, 10054, 10171, 11271, 11314
