    If that link does not work try this:

    To program a component using the Automatic Code Search method, perform the following steps:

    1. Turn on the component you want the remote control to operate.

    2. Press and release the component button that corresponds to the component you want the remote control to operate.

    3. The illuminated ON-OFF button turns on and remains on.

    4. Press and hold both the component and ON-OFF buttons.

    5. The illuminated ON-OFF button turns off.

    6. After the illuminated ON-OFF button turns back on, release both buttons.

    7. The illuminated ON-OFF button remains on.

    8. If you press an invalid button during Auto Code Search, the illuminated ON-OFF button blinks four times and turns off. The last programmed code under that component button is retained.

    9. Press and release the PLAY button.

    10. If, after five seconds, the component does not respond, continue to press the PLAY button every five seconds until the component turns off.

    11. Each time the Play button is pressed, the illuminated ON-OFF button blinks ten times and a block of 10 codes is sent to your component. This process continues until all the codes in the Code Lists have been searched. If the component has not turned off after all codes have been searched, the illuminated ON-OFF button blinks four times, turns off, and the Auto Code Search Entry method is exited.

    12. When the component turns off, press and release the REVERSE button, then wait two seconds to see if the component turns on again.

    13. If the component does not respond, continue to press the REVERSE button every two seconds until the component turns on again. This will isolate the correct code in the last block of codes sent. Each time the REVERSE button is pressed, the illuminated ON-OFF button blinks.

    14. If the REVERSE button is accidentally pressed after the component responds, press and release the FORWARD button. Wait two seconds to see if the component turns off again.

    15. To save the new code, press and release the STOP button.

    16. The illuminated ON-OFF button turns off. You must press the STOP button to save the code.

    17. If some of the features of your component do not work, different codes in the list can be tried until you find the code that allows the remote to control the majority of your component’s functions.
