Do a code search process.
If after trying "Direct Code Entry" your device does not respond, or if your brand is not listed, try doing a search of the code library for your code by following these steps.
  1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
  2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  3. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on.
  4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  5. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
Most users will want to store VCR codes under the VCR button, Cable codes under CBL, etc. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter ANY VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search.
Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for more details. Click this link. View it in "Timeslide" or "Flipcard" option, which can be selected from the drop down box menu by the [Sidebar] tag, at the top left corner of the display window.

I have a ge universal remote and a panasonic tv but i dont have the directions on how to program it or what the codes are to set it up. i need step by step instructions.please help


There are two types of GE universal remotes. Does your remote use the 4-digit code or the 3-digit code?

These codes listed below are not for combination TVs (TV/VCR, or TV/DVD). If you have a combination tv, see the appropriate code list here: http://www.jascoproducts.com/support/universal-remote-codes.asp .

The 3 digit codes for Panasonic TVs are 003, 054, 055, 062, 070, 148, 149, 170, 171, 374, 381, 437 . If you have an LCD or Plasma Panasonic only try 170.

The 4 digit codes to try for Panasonic TVs are 1182, 0171, 0148, 0054, 0170, 0062, 0374, 0381, 0437, 0950, 0003, 0070 .

Next to program the remote: Turn on the TV manually. Press and hold the Code Search or Setup button (depending on your remote). Hold the button until the indicator light comes on and then release it. Then press and release the TV button. Type in the first code for your remote and TV combination. The indicator light should go off. Then point the remote at the TV and see if the TV turns off. If it doesn't, repeat the above steps. Once you have a code that seems to work, check if the remote controls all of the functions that you need (based on the available buttons on the remote). If you have a code that turns off the TV but doesn't control other functions, continue trying other codes.

There is an option to search through all of the codes of the remote to program the remote. Press and hold the Code Search or Setup button. Release the button when the indicator light comes on. Then press and release the TV button. Now press and release the Power button on the remote repeatedly and wait until the TV turns off. Do this slowly (pressing the Power button every 2 seconds). When the TV turns off, press Enter on the remote to save the code. Then test the remote. If the remote doesn't control all the functions of the TV that you want it to, then repeat the search.

Please note that the codes in most universal remotes are limited to those for devices released 6 months or more before the remote was programmed. If your remote is older than your TV, then you may need a new remote.

I hope this helps.

Dish Network controller doesn't work if you happen to pause or stop when the screen is black or on a dark picture. You have to turn TV and control box off then back on to regain controller.

The remote works fine other than this stated problem? What type receiver and TV do you have? Do this just began occurring? Have you checked the batteries to make sure they are fresh? Is this on TV 1 or TV 2? One thing you may try is readdressing the remote to the receiver.

Remote: All Other Remotes
  1. Go to System Info screen (press Menu button 2 times on remote).
  2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
  4. Press the pound (#) button.
  5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful, the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

I am currently house-sitting for a family friend. Watching TV last night, the family pet jumped on me, causing me to hit the knobby button between the menu and reset buttons on a sony universal remote,...


This universal remote (or the TV's original remote) should have an Input button, which allows you to switch the various inputs available on the TV (such as HDMI, composite, over-the-air, cable, etc). You can try hitting Input until you see a picture, but be sure to turn on any devices connected such as set top boxes, DVD players, etc.

The TV should momentarily produce a sound and lighting effect,, and displaying on the dark screen a light blue screen.

The remote control has master button, menu on which every additional function is deriveable. Once the menu button is pressed with remote pointed in the direction of TV, should dicplay a list of options on the blue screen already established by power button. Every additional remote control device functionality is achievable by only after the first two buttons have been powered and pressed to display option results on a screen of TV.

A remote control could have several functionalities only accessible once made to display in screen. The three most common buttons on a remote control are First power button that powers on the TV, menu button that displays a list of functionalities on the powered on bl;ank blue screen, and using the arrow buttons on the remote would moves an indicator arround the screen area options. The selection button makes confrimation of the option.

Have a722 reciver uhf remote will not change channels onlly have picture from tv 1


kristinjacqu,

Your 722 receiver may be in single mode. This is the case usually when you have the same picture on both TVs and the remote won't function. On the receiver when it's in single mode, you will have a green light for TV 1 and an amber light for mode under the single box.

To put in dual mode, open the door on the right side of the receiver (the door will open to the right). Once open, in the upper left corner of that area you have a mode button (to the right of the power button). Press the mode button and the amber light will now illuminate under the 2 boxes. The blue light for TV 2 should also illuminate indicating the receiver is now in dual mode. This will separate the 2 TVs and you can now watch different channels on both TVS, plus the remotes will now work. I hope this helps.

Remote for box 1 is changing channels for remote 2 and remote 2 does not work


lieslmc

Are you getting the same picture on both TVs - TV 1 and TV 2? Depending on the receiver model, you have a mode button either on the front of the receiver or behind a door on the right side of the receiver. You also should have a green (TV 1), amber (mode), and blue (TV 2) lights on the receiver. If TV 2 is one, the blue light should be lit. The amber light should be lit under the dual mode. Press and release the mode button on the receiver to put the receiver in dual mode. The blue light (TV 2) should illuminate now and this will give you independent operation between the two TVs. I hope this helps.

How do you tune Sky+ remote into Sony KDL46W5710 Television

Or try this :-

With TV and sky box on.
Press the 'TV' button on the remote.
Hold down the 'select' and the 'red' button (of the four coloured buttons) together, until the red light on the remote blinks twice. (takes 2 seconds)
Press the 'TV' button again.
Now enter four zeros, the red light on the remote should blink twice.
Press the 'standby' button (top right).
If the TV turns off, then press 'select' and the light should blink twice again, job done.

If the TV does not turn off then press 'TV' followed by 'standby' again.
Alternate pressing 'TV' 'Standby' until the TV turns off.
When it does, finish by pressing 'Select.
Check the red light on the remote, if it blinks 3 times, then it has run out of options for 0000.
