Hold down the TV power and power buttons together until the indicator blink twice. Key in 9-9-1. The indicator should blink twice again. Press the TV power BUTTON, Aim the remote at the decoder and press the CH+ channel up button and wait for three seconds again. Repeat the steps until the TV turns off. You`re basically iterating through the TV codes in the remote`s database. Press the OK button once you find the correct code.

Also try codes 0067, or 3778, or 863 for Pensonic. Some people have reported that these codes worked for them. Good luck!

The sky remote will not operate the volume on my grundig gu22dvd have tried all the usual things codes etc but still doesnt work

Try an auto search with the remote, you might have already tried it :

1. press tv

2. press select and the red button simultaneously untill the LED light flashes twice

3. Then keep pressing the TV and Standby buttons one after the other (not at same time) until the tv swithches off, then press select to store the code, the LED should flash twice to confirm this.

Once you have the remote working the TV, you can get the remote blink back the TV code so you can write it down for future reference.

  • Press the TV button on the Sky remote
  • Hold down Select and the Red buttons together for approximately two seconds until the LED blinks twice
  • Key in 9, 9, 0
  • Key in 1 on the numeric keypad and count the number of times the Red LED blinks. This is the 1st digit.
  • Repeat for 2 and 3
  • Note: no Blink = 0 (zero)

Have lost instructions to Emerson universal jumbo remote

Using Code Search:

1. Turn on the device you want to program into the remote.
2. Point your remote control at the device
3. Press and hold the "Code Search" button for about 3 seconds until the light on the remote stays on.
4. Press the button on the remote for the device you want to program. Push the "TV" button to program the TV, press the "DVD" button to program the DVD player, etc. The light on the remote control will blink and stay on.
5. Slowly press and release the power button repeatedly until the device turns off. Each time you push the power button the light should blink once.
6. Press "Enter" to save the code into the remote and the light will turn off.

Program a Manual Code:

1. First turn on the device that you want to program such as your TV or DVD player.
2. Point your remote control at the device.
3. Press the button on the remote that corresponds to the device. If you want to program the TV, press the TV button.
4. Press the "Code Search" button for about 3 seconds until the light stays on.
5. Enter the code for your device using the number pad. The light will blink each time you push a button. If the code works, the light will turn off. If the light flashes, that means the code did not work. There may be multiple codes for a device. If a code does not work, start from the beginning by holding down code search until the light stays on and use a new code.
6. Press the power button to test if your device turns off. It it does not turn off, repeat the process with a new code.

Retrieving the Code for your Device:

If you used the code search function to program your device and want to know the code for future reference, you can retrieve the code from the remote. To do this:

1. Press and hold the Code Search for 3 seconds until the light stays on.
2. Press the device button for the code you want to retrieve. Press TV to get the TV code, etc. The light will blink once and stay on.
3. Press the number buttons from 0 to 9. When the light blinks once, that signals the first number of the code.
4. Repeat for the 2nd and 3rd digits of the code. The light will turn off after you retrieve the 3rd digit.

Programming the Sleep Setting:

1. Press and hold the "SLEEP" button until the light stays on.
2. Use the number pad to enter 2 digits for how many minutes to use for the timer (01 to 99 minutes). The light will turn off and start timing.
3. Make sure the remote is pointing at your device.
4. To cancel the sleep timer, press the power button once or hold down the sleep button until the light flashes once.

Here is a list of the Emerson Universal Codes:

I need the codes for zenith tv.

Try the following codes first: Zenith 0017, 0463, 0178, 0092 . You can also try the manual code search option. For a TV, press TV once then press and hold Set. When the red LED blinks once, release the Set button. Press 9 - 9 - 1 . The LED will blink twice. Aim the remote at the TV and slowly alternate between pressing Power and TV. When the TV turns off after pressing Power, stop and press and release Set. Check if the remote controls additional functions for the TV. If it doesn't, repeat the code scan. You can record the code by pressing 9 - 9 -0 after holding the Set key. Then press 1 (first digit) and wait 3 seconds to see how many times the LED blinks (no blinks = 0). Then repeat with 2, 3 and 4.

The manual and code list is available here: .

Please note that this remote was released in 2004. The codes included in the remote are limited to devices that were released at least 6 months before the remote was programmed. If your TV is newer, then you need a newer universal remote.

I hope this helps.

Sony Trinitron Wega Standby blinks & the TV won't turn on

Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

TV won't turn on

The 9 blinks usually mean that the power regulators are shot. This is a relatively simple repair and is a wear and tear item. Expect about $25-$35 in parts plus the local labor rate for the total repair cost. If you want to try and repair it your self, I can look up the part designations and numbers.
Keep me posted.
