I assume you were just entering manufacture codes. Some times this won't give you all the features you're looking for (like skipping tracks). Try going through the manual to assign buttons a particular function. It's a learning remote so it can learn from your other remotes by putting the two facing one another and going through the necessary button sequence laid out in the yamaha manual (page 104 in the RX-V1800 manual, it's in the advanced operation section)

CAUTION: All buttons are reprogrammable so make sure you have your source slider (on the right side of the remote) set to Source and not AMP or you'll overwrite the Amp functions and you'll have to reset the remote to factory settings and start over.

Remote doesn't control on/off,volume or channels


Remote won't workThe most common reasons the remote won't work is that the batteries are dead or it hasn't been programmed properly. It's often easy to fix. Here are the steps to take to troubleshoot the problem.
Make sure you have a clear path between the remote and the infrared eye on your equipment. Clear any dust or debris that may be covering the eye.

Try unlocking the battery-saving mode. When a button is pressed for longer than three minutes, the remote goes into battery-saving mode. Press the SAT mode button at the top to unlock it. Your remote should work properly.

Check the batteries. When you press a mode button, does it light up? If not, you may be out of juice. Check to make sure they are in the right way, with the metal ends making good connections with the metal in the remote. If they're in correctly and you still don't get power, try replacing them. They may be dead.Learn about batteries

Check to make sure the remote is programmed properly, which basically means you reprogram it to work with your receiver, TV and any other components. Start with the receiver and work your way through programming each component that isn't working. We tell you how to program remotes in our guide to remotes.Learn about remotes

Still no go? You may have an internal problem with the remote. You'll have to talk to a Shaw Direct customer service representative. Call 1.888.554.7827.Be prepared to tell us:What components you have.All of the steps you've been through to try and solve the problem yourself.Can't change channels on receiverThis is almost always caused by a programming problem with the remote. Here are the steps to take to troubleshoot the problem.
Make sure you are in SAT mode. The receiver will only change channels when the remote is in the correct mode.Look for a timer. If you have a timer set, the receiver won't let you change channels. This ensures you don't miss recording a program with an external device. If a timer is set and you want to watch another channel, simply turn off the receiver and turn it back on.Learn about timers

Make sure the problem is with the remote and not the receiver. Try the buttons on the front of the receiver. Try to change channels. If your model doesn't have channel buttons, try to turn the machine off. If you can't change channels or power off, the problem is with the receiver. Try unplugging it for two minutes and plugging it in again.

If you can change the channels or power off, the problem is with the remote. Press any mode button on the remote. It should light up. If not, you probably have low batteries. They should be replaced.

Try unlocking the battery-saving mode. When a button is pressed for longer than three minutes, the remote goes into battery-saving mode. Click on any of the mode buttons at the top to unlock it. Your remote should work properly.

Try re-programming the remote to talk to your receiver.Find the manual for your remote control

Check to see if your Shaw Direct Receiver is using the same remote control address as your remote control.If you are using the DSR 319, HDDSR 505, or HDPVR 530 receiver press the Options button on the front panel of your Shaw Direct receiver. An options menu should appear on your screen. Using the direction keys on the front of your receiver navigate to 6 - System Setup and then press the Enter button on the front panel of the receiver. Using the same directional and Enter buttons go to 4 - System Setup. Then 3 - Installation Settings. Followed by 2 - Remote control Address.If you are using a legacy receiver such as the DSR 315, DSR 405, or any other receiver with front panel buttons, press the Options button on the front panel of your Shaw Direct receiver. An options menu should appear on your screen. Using the direction keys on the front of your receiver navigate OPTIONS and then press the Enter button on the front panel of the receiver. Using the same directional and Enter buttons go to 6 - Change System Settings. Then 3 - Change Installation Settings. Followed by 2 - Set Remote Control Address.Follow the on-screen instruction to reset the remote control address on your receiver and remote control.Check the back of your remote, if you own the IRC/URC 550 or RT-U50 remote controls you will need to enter the remote control address differently from what is displayed on screen. To program these remotes, hold the ENTER and MUTE button on your remote at the same time until the mode buttons at the top start to illuminate then enter the last three digits of the number displayed in "Current Address" column on the screen, then press the MUTE button to lock in the code. For example: If the remote address on the screen displays 0002, you would hold ENTER + MUTE until the mode button illuminated and then enter 0 0 2, followed by ENTER on your remote control.If you own the IRC 551 or URC 551 remote control you can follow the instruction depicted on the screen, but you must substitute the follows numbers in place those specified: 00869 for 0000, 01870 for 0001, 01871 for 0002, 01872 for 0003, 01873 for 0004, 01874 for 0005, 01875 for 0006, 01876 for 0008. For example: If the remote address on the screen displays 0003, you would hold the SAT button until it flashes, press 01872, then ENTER, to lock in the new code.Still no go?

How you program the control on the tv what the steps?


Hello
If you know the codes for your tV with this RCA RCR312W remote control; the proceedings to enter the code follows:

Direct Code Entry

To program your universal remote to control your components

using the Direct Code Entry Method, follow the steps below.

1. Manually turn on the component you want the remote to

control.

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 one of the Code Search

methods to program the remote control. (Refer to pages 3
and 4 for Manual and Auto Code Search methods.)

3. Press and hold the component key (TV,

VCR•DVD, SAT•CBL) you wish to

program. The illuminated ON•OFF key

turns on and remains on. If you release

the component key at any time during the Direct Code

Entry procedure, the illuminated ON•OFF key 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

illuminated ON•OFF key turns off.

5. After the fourth number is entered, the illuminated ON•OFF

key turns on. At this time, release the component key. If the

illuminated ON•OFF key 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 illuminated ON•OFF key 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.

Tip: 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.
OK.

I have tried programming my wii remote but it won't work. I pressed both the sync buttons, but all it does is flash on all 4 dots and then quits. I've changed the batteries in both remotes, as...


Here's what to do. I've had this happen many times.

1. Open up the SD Card compartment on the Wii.

2. Open up the battery cover on the remotes.

3. Press the red Sync button on the Wii, and then on one of the remotes.

4. Repeat for whatever remotes need synced.

This will make every remote act like the P1 remote. For temporary syncing, just go into the Home Menu and click Wii Remote Settings. Click on another option(it'll say to press 1 and 2) and follow the instructions.

I am trying to program my universal remote control for a citizen tv model no JCTV3242A


Hell, depending on the brand and model of your universal remote, there are two procedures to program it to work with your citizen TV, first the direct code procedure(list of codes included in the owners manual) or the code scan procedure consisting of pressing certain keys on your remote untill the code that programs your citizen TV is obtained. I suggest going into the website provided by the manufacturer of your remote to obtain both procedures.

'99 chevy tracker power locks work intermittently


You might thing about either taking the remote apart and cleaning the contacts. Or get a new remote of ebay (make sure to check the FCC ID and IMED ID of the back of the old remote to make sure they match the new remote)

You will also need the instruction on how to program (usually the seller on Ebay will provide these free of charge if you ask for them upfront)
