Some remotes are preprogrammed with codes for certain devices. You turn on the device you wish to control (TV for example), press the TV button, and press the power button to see whether the TV turns off. If so, you're in luck. There might be an ENTER key or something similar to store your selection in memory

SOURCE: programming the innovage remote

To have the remote try each TV code it knows one at a time, follow these steps:

  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH button for at least 3 seconds until the red LED lights up and stays lit.
  3. Press the TV button on the remote so that the LED blinks once and then remains solid red.
  4. Press the ON/OFF button slowly and repeatedly until the TV turns off. The LED will blink once each time you press the ON/OFF button.
  5. Once the TV turns off, press the ENTER button to store the code and the LED will turn off.
To program the remote for your VCR, repeat this process starting with turning the VCR on, then follow the steps substituting the VCR button for the TV button.

I hope that helps.

I need remote control code for Dawin TV

If you do not know the code, you can use the code search function to program the remote control.

Using Code Search:

1. Turn on the device you want to program into the remote.

2. Point your remote control at the device

3. Press and hold the "Code Search" button for about 3 seconds until the light on the remote stays on.

4. Press the button on the remote for the device you want to program. Push the "TV" button to program the TV, press the "DVD" button to program the DVD player, etc. The light on the remote control will blink and stay on.

5. Slowly press and release the power button repeatedly until the device turns off. Each time you push the power button the light should blink once.

6. Press "Enter" to save the code into the remote and the light will turn off.

Dont know how to program devices

  • Turn on the electronic device for which you'll be using your remote control. You will have to do this manually by pressing the "On/Off" button on the device.

  • Locate either the "Code Search" or "Setup" button on your remote control. Which one you have will depend on the remote control.

  • Hold that button for anywhere between five and 10 seconds. The light on your remote should then turn on. Depending on your remote, the light will either blink or remain on after you release the button

    Press the corresponding button on your remote for your device that you are programming. In other words, if you want to program your remote to your television, you would press the "TV" button.

    How do i program my remote

    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.

    Remote control

    I was able to get my Motorola DVR Cable Box to work with my Universal Remote using the following instructions:

    The Instruction Manual for Manual Code Search seems incorrect. (Page 5).

    A) Manually turn on the device to be controlled. (O.K.)
    B) Press and hold the code search button until the red indicator stays on, then release the code search button. (O.K.)
    C) Press and quickly release the desired mode button (TV, VCR). The red indicator blinks off once. (O.K.)
    D) Face the remote control directly to the device you want to control. (O.K.)
    E.) Press the ON/OFF Button (this should read CHANNEL UP button) repeatedly until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red button blinks off with each button press.
    F) Press and release enter to install the code. (O.K.)

    -Note, the remote is able to change the channel, however, it does not control the volume.
