  • With the desired equipment on, press and hold the correct Mode button until all mode button backlights illuminate (about 3 seconds), then release.
  • For AUX mode Power Scan ONLY: press 0 for a TV, press 1 for a VCR/DVD, press 2 for any other device, then press *.
  • Press and release the Power button.
  • Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will power off.
  • Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.
  • To verify the code works try several different functions for that equipment.

  • Power Scan Tips

    • When performing the Power Scan, periodically check that the mode light is not lit when the channel up/down button is depressed. This will ensure the Power Scan is performed correctly.
    • The Power Scan will start with the last code you put in. If the last code you put in was 656 it will then go to 657 when pressing the Up button when performing a Power Scan.
    • If there is no code programmed into the remote at the time of the Power Scan then it will start with 000 regardless of the type of remote.
    • Whether the scan then proceeds ascending or descending from this number depends on whether you scan with the Up or Down buttons on the remote. For consistency, and to most rapidly go through the most common codes more quickly, you should use the up button exclusively, unless you pass a functional code by accident and wish to toggle back down to it.
    • Manually turn on the device you are scanning for before you begin the Power Scan.
    • If the scan powers the device off, but does not give full function re-enter scan mode and continue (example: there are dozens of RCA TV codes).
    • Remember not all devices are supported, and many will only give you basic functions.
    • If performing the Power Scan correctly then it should not take more than six minutes. On average you should find the correct code within two minutes.
    • The Mode button will flash rapidly when you reach the end of the codes.
    • Never replace a remote simply because it does not operate a device. UNLESS it formerly did so and now no longer works and you have tried appropriate troubleshooting. (Tip: try programming code into AUX mode as a temporary workaround should a single mode like TV or VCR fails).

    If you are performing a Power Scan in AUX mode, the steps you should follow are below:
    • Hold down the AUX button so all buttons light up
    • Enter in prefix 0 = TV, 1 = VCR , 2 = AUX device
    • Press the asterisk button "*"
    • Power then press the Up/Down like you would with a regular power scan.

    Where do I find codes for Protron DVD recorder PD-DVR 100 for a Dish Network remote control

    I hope that you have found the codes by now, but if not, here are the codes we have, and also the steps to program that remote.

    1. Hold down the clear AUX button until all lights light up at the top of the remote
    2. Punch in a 3 digit code (provided below)
    3. Press the # (POUND) button
    4. Try powering the DVD on/off, and the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over from step 1 with a different code

    685 is the only code we have for this brand.
