How to get my Sony HT-CT60 Sound Bar Home Theater programmed to my GCI Cable remote?


This worked for me, but I have a Comcast Motorola DVD-R:
These are the codes for your SONY SA-CT60 Audio Device. Follow the instructions below to program your remote.
silver_with_red_ok_button-lg.gif Most likely code: 30158
Others to try: 31758, 31759
To program your Comcast remote:
  1. Turn on the TV or other device that you would like to program.
  2. Press the TV button on your remote control.
    NOTE: If you would like to program your remote control to work with a DVD Player, VCR or Audio device press the AUX button.
  3. Press and hold Setup until the red light blinks twice, then release Setup.
  4. Enter the first code for your device listed above. If you perform this procedure correctly, the red light will blink twice.
    NOTE: If you enter an invalid code, the red light will display one long blink and exit the programming mode. Repeat steps 2 to 4 with a valid code.
  5. Aim the remote control at your device and press Power once (press the Play key for devices that don't have a POWER button). If the TV turns off, make sure that the VOL+/- and Mute buttons also work. If so, you're all set!
  6. If not, repeat these steps using the next manufacturer's code (you may need to try several codes to find the one that works).

Model dt 250 A will not turn on. Red on odd jewell light flickers when trying to turn the box on by remote or manually. Also lately when it did work it will not hold when commanded to stop closed caption....


If you're electronics savy, as in replacing capacitors, open it up.. that's your problem.. one or two of the caps on the power board has gone bad.. most likely a 470uf 25v, which can be replaced with a 470uf 35v found at Radio shack for about $1.29. You can tell if it's bad if the top is cracked open & leaking or just domed out instead of being flat.

As far as the cc mode, I'm not sure, but this fix will get your box working

Won't even feed into tv anymore....


If you are using the RF input are you sure the channel on the TV did not change? Make sure the TV is set on Channel 3 (or 4) or use the component (red-white-yellow) outputs if your TV has component inputs available.

CORRECT SETUP CODE FOR RECEIVER


Originally Posted by 3FingeredGlove viewpost.gif We can make this work. You didn't mention which setup code you're using, or explicitly say whether the OK/Select button is red or gray (the manual you're using is for gray), so these are somewhat generic instructions. Should work, though. This will provide a power toggle function to the Power key.

Use red numbers for the red OK/Select button remote, grey numbers for grey button remtoes.
Temporarily assign setup code 30842 or 0842 to AUX
1) Tap AUX
2) Press Setup until 2 blinks
3) Enter 30842 or 0842The remote should blink twice

Assign NEC1 IR protocol device 210, subdevice 108, function number 203 to Power (you don't need to understand these numbers)
1) Press Setup until 2 blinks
2) Enter 994 (2 blinks)
3) Tap Setup
4) Enter 00051
5) Tap Power (not All On)
The remote should blink twice

Assign setup code 30135 or 0135 to AUX (this is NEC1, 210.109)
1) Tap AUX
2) Press Setup until 2 blinks
3) Enter 30135 or 0135
The remote should blink twice
