Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
If you have a universal remote but dont have the codes or the codes dont work then what you can try is to scan all the frequencys using the remote to manually scan to work for your telly or other equipment your trying to control.
Follow these simple instructions
1. Turn on the device you want the control to control ie the tv or dvd or stereo etc
2. You need to now press and hold the button for the device you want to control and also the power button untill the light on the remote stays on( for this case we are going to program it to control a tv) so press and hold the tv button and power button hold them down untill the light stays on
3. press the play button once every 5 seconds( a bank of 10 codes is being sent every time you press the play button)
4. when it turns the tv off wait press the rewind/reverse button and check it turns the telly back on if it does then you need to hold the stop button untill the light goes off.
Once you have done this check the remote is working properly ie changing channels ets if it dont work properly then follow the instructions again and try again you may need to do this a few times till it gets the right signal
