My pause, rewind and fast forward not working when watching tv

I ASSUME you are using the dvr function of a cable box or satellite receiver. I also ASSUME your other buttons are working, since you say nothing about them.

Check that pause, rew, and ff buttons have codes from the correct device. A code from your tv will not help if you need to control your sat receiver.

There may be multiple codesets in the Harmony database that work with your device, try all of them.

Sometimes the codes are poorly named or even wrong. You may need to try all the codes to find the right one.

I'm not sure if the Harmony One can learn codes from the original remotes, but that may be a better option.

How do i set the time on a vcr that normally uses a wheel but i'm using an universal remote

  • most universal remotes usually only do the simple commands like power, play, fast forward, rewind, pause, stop.
  • It may not be capable of setting the time.
  • If the remote is able to be switched to just work for your VCR you could try to press the menu, input or setting buttons to bring up any type of menus that would possibly help. If that doesn't work you may not be able to set it with the remote.

Can anyone provide the code manual for my Mega Control 5 universal remote control.

Try contacting Mega Control to request a manual (including a code list). Meanwhile, use the "code search" feature of your universal remote (although you don't identify it in the button list) to find a code for your device(s).

My dstv remote works well except the pause / fast forward / rewind

It sounds like a contact fault to its buttons inside the remote control. Your remote control need to have cleaned. To clean it, you have to open it and take the printed circuit board inside it. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.
One among the post by this site have details about how to clean and check a remote control. Surf the site with patience.

The buttons on remote stick. When I press FF, Play, List, etc. it doesn't make the connection. If I press and hold it will sometimes work.

The remote is failing, if buttons are sticking its not worth repairing. Go to ebay and search for a used remote, and buy it. Search for MX-7800 remote.

I need remote codes for a src-300a to a toshiba tv

One of these three codes should work: 0156, 0060, 0154

In addition, here are the commands to get your remote into programming mode should you require them.
  • Press the LED button and hold it down until the LED Flashes.
  • Press the REC button. The LED stops blinking at this point and stays solid.
  • Press and release the POWER. The remote is now in TV Code Scan Programming Mode.
  • Press the UP ARROW (above SELECT) button to scan through all the TV codes. When you reach the correct TV code, the TV will automatically turn off.
  • Press the SELECT button to store the TV code. The LED flashes rapidly then stops, indicating code has been stored.

My Toshiba SE-R0161 Remote no longer works.

There is most likely nothing wrong with your remote. I just had exactly the same issue with my SE-R0161 remote. (I had just changed my remote batteries too and was getting a DR-2 code on the Toshiba DVR RD-XS52 unit's display.) My DVR and my remote had to be realigned so that they both have the same infared (IR) code. The remote and the DVR can have DR 1, DR 2 or DR 3 as remote codes. Pg 54 of the Toshiba Installation Manual explains how to align both your SE-R0161 and your based unit so that the remote works again. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Configuring Sky remote

1. Press tv on your Sky remote control.

2. Press and hold down select and the red button together until the red light at the top of your Sky remote control flashes twice.

3. Press tv again

Then enter the remote control code using the number keypad. The red light will flash twice if a valid code has been entered.

Samsung Code: 0060

4. Point your Sky remote control at your TV and press the Power button. If this turns the off as you'd expect, then the tv should be set, press Select and the remote should work

5. If the TV does not turn off press tv, then press the Power button again, repeat this process until the TV turns off, when the TV turns off press Select.
