    I have tried all the codes you suggested but without success.

    However I am not even sure that I am using the correct sequence to enter the codes from the master remote.

    The remote has a "Shift/Setup" and a "tv" key

    I am using the follwoing sequence to enter the codes.



    Enter code



    If you have any suggestions for a different sequence the I would be most grateful for your advice.Thanks again.

    Hi. Thanks very much for your help. You have indeed indentified the exact remote. I have visited the Strand website from the link which you kindly provided. The website was not all that helpful. There were no manuals nor instructions available for download. However I was able to leave an email message and hopefully I will get a meaningful reply soon.

    I have managed through trial and error to get the remote working with the BUSH television. I will outline briefly what I did. However I am still not sure if this is the correct procedure but it does seem to work.

    1. Switch on the Television.

    2. Hold down the "SHIFT" button on the remote for about 6 seconds until the LED glows continuously.

    3. Press the "Chapter/CH+ button on the remote. The LED will begin to blink steadily at approx 1 blink per second.

    4. Press and release slowly the "Power" button until the Television switches off. This may take some time. (I had to press and release the Power button about 20 times)

    5. Press the OK (middle top) button on the remote IMMEDIATELY.

    The remote should now work. Some of the functions have dual keys. For example the "Menu" function is accessed by first pressing the Shift button and then Menu. The OK function is also accessed by first pressing Shift. Pressing OK without Shift would give the mute function.

    Hopefully this information will be useful to someone else in the same situation as myself.

    If I get any information from the Strand website I will post it to you.

    Thanks again.

I have a strand 3 in 1 you just need to press and hold shift/setup until the light stays on. Then press channel up. DO NOT press the on/off button but just let it cycle until the tv turns off. THEN press the ok button immediately.

Hi XX,

My sincerest apologies, I am not familiar with either the Strand Master 3 in 1 remote control or the Bush Television RF2185NTSIL/A.

However, a quick Google disclosed that a great many TV sets use the code 0065, 065 or 584.

Additionally, you can try 0742, 0157, 246, 263, 377, 037, 064, 065, 310, 300, 383, 399, 391, 402, 547, 292, 239, 312, 609, 322, 339, 515, 236, 389, 035, 191, 232, 245, 064, 0377, 0037, 0064, 0310, 0300, 0383, 0391, 0402, 0547, 0292, 0239, 0375, 0312, 0609, 0389 and finally 0339.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Strand 3 in 1 Master Remote Control

You can find the remote control codes for different brands of devices from

If none of the codes work then we have two other solutions:

1. Searching For Your Code

If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment ,or your brand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, try the following procedure to search for your code.
If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when you reach the end of all the codes for this device type.
  1. PRESS the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), then RELEASE.
  2. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
  3. ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
  4. ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
    Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.
  5. When your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in the code for your device.

2. Learn the buttons from the original

Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing the following steps.
  1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
  2. PRESS 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.
  3. PRESS the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function. The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.
  4. PRESS the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash rapidly.
  5. PRESS the button on the original remote to be learned.

Now you can repeat steps 3 through 5 to learn other functions onto other keys or press and hold SETUP until the Cinema's red light flashes twice to lock in your new feature. (If the red light does not blink twice, stop and repeat steps through 6).
To test the new feature, press and release the device key in which the new feature was learned followed by the key on which the feature was learned
