Re: Remote Codes for Philips Universal

These are dependent on your brand of Universal remote control. You should call the manufacturer of the remote control device or check their web site for an updated list.

How do I get the code to program my clo35a remote to my philips 3545v dvdr?

Codes are stored in the remote. If your remote is universal, you can use its "code search" (or similar) feature to find one that will work.

I need philips universal 4 digit remote codes

Not sure I can help. You might do well to call Samsung 800-SAMSUNG. But I have the codes that should work if you were hooking the Samsung to a Philips set top box or cable box. Perhaps they are the same? (And how lucky are you that you landed this jewel! I love this unit!

Hi, bought dvd ntsc format from US but can't play at our player. Are you able to assist ? Player type - Philips HTS3011/98

your dvd has regional code..only play dvd from where your purchase it.
you can do some hack.
try this

To convert this player for multi-region playback

This hack should work on all Philips DVD players with any firmware version, and other similar models by manufacturers such as Grundig, Marantz and Yamaha

Please note that if you experience problems with this hack you can obtain firmware version 7.03 and later by visiting the PhilipsSyndicate to obtain files that you can burn to a CD-R and flash your unit to the new version.

The following uses the machines own remote control:

We have heard reports that hacking some players using the units own remote control incurs a 25 change limit after which it will lock the machine in the last set region

We have heard other reports that hacking some players such as the DVDR-880 using the units own remote control can result in an inoperable unit, we recommend you use the OneForAll remote only and consult our Region Hacks forum for more information

  • Press the Play button on the player
    NB: You may need to press this button on the remote control instead
  • Press the 1 button on the remote control
  • Press the 5 button on the remote control
  • Press the 9 button on the remote control

Although the above may appear to work on many units, showing the correct display as indicated in Step 2, the hack may still not work. In which case you WILL need to use Step 1b instead! 1b.

If the above does not work, you will have to send the infra-red code RC6 (aka Codeset 4, Key 235 in nerd-speak) to your player with a OneForAll remote such as the OneForAll 6 (or URC7560) or OneForAll 4 (or URC7740) or OneForAll 4 Digital with the following instructions:

  • Configure your remote using the setup code 0 5 3 9
  • Press the Magic button
  • Enter the code 0 8 5, or if your unit requires a five digit code, enter 0 0 0 8 5
If you own a Palm Pilot, you may also use Pacific Neo-Tek's OmniRemote software to generate the RC6 code using a downloadable .pdb file.
  • Download the .pdb file into your Palm Pilot
  • Press the OmniRemote key marked as 955 Multizone
If you do not own either of the above units, it is possible to construct a cheap DIY solution by following instructions at the following website.

NB: Sending these codes to some players, such as the Philips DVDR-980, requires you to select a DVD player remote on the unit as the default IR device, as opposed to the DVD recorder remote it is factory set to. Please consult your player documentation to find out how to do this.
2. The onscreen display should show 11 spaces like this: '-----------'

NB: The actual display may differ slightly depending on the model of your player, may be shown on the unit itself, or may even not be visible on some models at all.
3. Using the number keys on your DVD player's remote control, enter the code 222 222 005 255. Note that this is 12 digits and the last digit will not show on the on-screen display.

NB: For players such as the Philips DVDR-980, DVDR-985 and DVDR-1000 units, you may need to use the code 121 212 005 255 instead. For players such as the Philips DVDR-880 you may need to use the code 121 212 005 00x instead, where x is the desired region, however this also works on other units including the DVDR-985 for setting a specific region. 4. Press the Play button on your DVD player's remote control 5. The onscreen display should now show the words No Disc 6. Power off your DVD player, wait 10 seconds and then power back on

Universal Remote says ''RC2'' for DMR-EZ27

Question (s): The remote control for my DVD recorder has stopped working. Every time I press a button, the display says "CHK REMOTE 1", "RC1" or "SET1". What is wrong? Answer/Comments: Your DVD recorder remote control can be programmed (with different codes), so it can be used with multiple Panasonic DVD players. When you press a button and the display shows [CHK REMOTE #] or [RC#] or [SET#] it means that the DVD recorder and the remote control are not set to the same code.To set the remote control code to that of the DVD recorder, press and hold [ENTER] as well as the corresponding code number on the display (1, 2 or 3) at the same time for more than 2 seconds.

Code for remote control of philips DVDR 3360D Hard disk / DVD Recorder

Also need to know what is the make and model of the universal remote you are using. Codes vary from one to the next.

If by chance your remote is Philips, the code for Philips DVDR's is one of the following:
0599, 0699, 1211

I have a Philips URC US2-PH5DSS and I use the code 0599 to control my Philips 3355 DVDR.

Need help finding DVP3140 remote programming code for comcast universal remote

Since the codes that Comcast gave you did not work, there is a very high possibility that the remote control is not compatible with the DVD player. You cannot expect universal remote control to work with all devices, regardless of its make. Philips does not have codes for this DVD player because it is the maker of the universal remote control that sets the codes.

Possible codes for Philips DVD Players are: 0441, 0442, 0943, 0177, 0599, 0799, 0699, 0247, 0447, 0598, 1211, 1214. More specifically, codes for Philips DVD Recorders are 0599, 0699, and 1211.

I have the Philips 3355 DVDR, and the code 0599 works on my Philips URC US2-PH5DSS.

You can visit the Philips Universal Remote Control code look-up page to find just about any manufacturer code for a Philips remote. The page is here: I don't see your remote there, but maybe you can lookup the codes under a similar remote.
