Question about VCRs
I am having no sucess in finding the remote control code for my newly purchased Philips VCR &DVD combo player. I simply prefer one remote for all home intertainment systems. The code cannot be found in the manual or is it in the list of codes that come with the universal remote. I've called Philips tech support for both the player and the universal remote,which is a Philips product, and it baffles me that no one can get me a simple remote code for this product!
Please help if you can, Thank You,
If you have Dish Network and I suspect if you have Direct TV or a cable providers, you can use your remote for that service provider to find your VCR code. For the Dish you can look in the user's guide on pages 9 and 19 to see how to do a "Device Code Scan" and "Check Device Code".
To Scan: #1: Turn on the device you wish to scan for a code, #2 Press and hold down the button on your Dish remote for that device until all the buttons light up and the specific device button is flashing, #3 Press the blank power button, #4 press the up or down button until until your VCR tuns off, #5 Press the POUND ( # ) key to store the code number and #6 Press the blank power key to turn the device back on.
To Check the Device Code: #1 Press and hold down the device key until all buttons light up and the device button is flashing, next press the POUND ( # ) key TWICE ! The Mode button will flash to code number with a pause between each number, i.e. 5 flashes, pause 3 flaskes, pause one quick flash is 530. Write down this number and you are rady to go !
