Have rcu310bb remote. Need how to use with rc5220p dvd player

RCA codes to check with RCA RC5220P are:
3150, 3356, 3363, 3372, 3412, 3423, 3424, 3426, 3443, 3470, 3480, HTIB: 3444, Portable: 3163

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 7 and 9 for Manual and

Auto Code Search methods.)

3* Press and hold the component key


wishto 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.

Code not turning off dvdplayer using dish network remote

This often happens when the remote is programmed to a code that's close but not the right one to control that specific model of DVD player. If the remote was powering off the DVD player before it may be a bad remote. Try this link you can try reprogramming the remote. Hope this helps!!

It's not working. The profanity still comes through when watching a dvd. I tried setting the tv on caption cc2. I think I did that. It did not make a difference.

U can't not stop profanity,if u watch NC17,PG13 or Rated R DVD movies.Captioning CC1,2,3 dosen't effect the DVD movie.It only have captioning on the tv that in tv brocasting shows,not in the DVD movie.If u want no profanity in movies watch PG movies.

I just rented a new dvd from Blockbuster and I get a parental screen that comes up. I can't get past it and can't watch the movie. All my other movies work fine. Even the feature dvd that came with the...

You have the rating set on your DVD player to lower than the rating of the movie you are trying to watch.

Somewhere in your setup menu of your DVD player (press the "setup" button on the remote with disc stopped or no disc) you will find a place to set the parental lock. Either turn it off, if that is an option, or set it to the rating of the movie (or higher) to enable viewing.

Have you tried that dvd in another player?
Have you tried another dvd in your player?
Since this began after you moved it, do some backtracking.
If someone quit AFTER I did...such and such, then THAT is most likely the cause.
I have solved many problems by backtracking.

How do you reset the parental control code?

Called Zenith.  They said: turn on the DVD player.  Hit "set-up". Scroll down to the "lock" icon.  Scroll over to "Rating". Scroll over to unlock.  Enter 0000.  Click on Ok.  Enter 0000 again, click Ok again.  Menu should read unlock.  Voila!
