Need manual or help for Fisher Price INTERACTV controller set-up

This was given to us in really good condition second hand, and we would like to give it to our 4 yr old for Xmas ...but neither of us are "technically inclined" and can't figure out how to program the controller to our TV....HELP please....Thanks :) We set the InteracTV up and used it a couple of years ago w/ our son but now our daughter is old enough to use it and we have a different DVD player than we did then. I downloaded the Quick Set up instructions but they weren't very helpful. They said to insert the "Set Up" card - we have a Programming Card and a Test card but nothing that just says "Set Up" like it shows in those instructions. Also, it says to place the InteracTV controller and DVD remote 3 inches apart and then follow the audio instructions from you InteracTV controller (and your DVD player is supposed to be off this whole time). Well, I don't see anywhere for sound to come out of the InteracTV controller so that doesn't make sense to me. Also, is there a DVD that is supposed to guide you in part of this? I really thought we kept everything together here but I don't see one that just says "set up". If there is a DVD for set up what does it look like - what is the picture on it? I truly appreciate any help or guidance here - I feel pretty lost.
Thank you,

    I don't think the person who answered me previously read what I said my problem was. I already downloaded the Quick Set up instructions and said they weren't very helpful - all they gave me was a link to do that again.

    If you read what I wrote in my original problem I am questioning everything in the Quick Set up instructions that I had already downloaded before coming to this website for help so another copy of that is not an answer for me.

    Also, not that it matters, but the first 3 lines of my post were not written by me - that is part of someone else's and maybe they are not getting any help b/c theirs is being added into my post. Mine starts after their "Thanks". Just thought someone may need to know that.

    I paid $9.99 to ask you all for help in clarifying what the Quick Set up instructions were saying - please help me with that - the last person I'm sure meant well but didn't give me anything that I didn't already have. In fact, that was my very question - I have that already, now, what does it MEAN???

    Thank you so much for explaining!!!

    Dear Madam, the guide provided by fisher price seems to be quite clear to me. You must have the set-up card to setup you interactv on a new device. It should be the one with set up card written on it. I do not know if on older models the programming card can be used to do setup, but I do not think so. Most likely your setup card is lost or missing. You should contact Fisher Price to get a replacement, here is toll free number for USA


    For the rest you should follow the few easy steps illustrated.

    Best regards

I need to program the Fisher Price Inerac tv to the dvd and or the tv so I need the instructins on how to I lost the and the dvd it was programed to is broke, can you help it is about 7 years old. it says...


spacer.gifThe following steps will allow you to program your InteracTV controller:
  1. Make sure the InteracTV controller has good batteries. Slide the 3 position memory switch, on the back of the controller, to the desired memory position. The controller is capable of being setup for up to 3 different DVD players in 3 different locations.The controller must be setup and tested individually for each of the 3 DVD players, but once that is done the controller will retain the manufacturer's code and does not need to be setup again.If the consumer accidentally enters a new valid 4-digit manufacturer’s code, then they must set it up again for that DVD player.It is a good idea to write the 4-digit manufacturer’s code in the labeling area provided on the back of the controller.
  2. Insert the compilation DVD into the DVD player and turn on the DVD player and TV.
  3. Insert the programming card into the controller; the green light should blink twice.
  4. Locate the manufacturer’s codes in the user’s manual.
  5. Enter the first 4 digit code listed under the manufacturer. Use the right arrow button for the number. The light should blink after each button press and blink a long blink after the 4th digit is entered.
  6. Remove the programming card.The light should double blink when the card is removed
  7. Insert the test card into the unit;the green light should double blink.
  8. The DVD should skip to the test screen, if it does not, repeat from step 3, choosing the next manufacturer’s code on the list. If the test card skips to the footage, which resembles the test card, then proceed with testing the unit.See Testing the unit section of you manual or quick setup instructions.
  9. If you have tried all of the manufacturer's codes listed and you cannot locate an acceptable code, see programming the unit using manual search in your user's manual.

I had a similar issue. Check and see if you have 2 Fisher-Price file folders under C:\Program Files. Go to My Coputer, then c drive, then program files. You should see only 1 Fisher Price folder. If you see another with Fisher-Price(2), Open that folder and select all of the files. Then select cut. Paste those files in the original Fisher-Price Folder and that should get you up and going. That is what I had to do to get mine to work again. I don't know how that second folder got created but it did.
Hope this works for you
