Hi,

When your all other buttons work only the mute button doesnt work.The problem lies with the mute button only.Not with programming.

    99% of the problems which present like the above are due to "slime" developing on the printed
    circuit board as well as the rubberized buttons developing the same condition. Find some good
    old hard plastic knives like they used to have at McDonalds and start prying the case apart.
    When apart, clean the rubberized touch pad with common dish soap and dry completely. Do the same with the hard plastic cover. Wash with the hottest water you can stand. Then clean the circuit board of the "slime" with an electronic cleaner made for such use. Lacking that, common rubbing alcohol, or the like. will remove the "slime" that is clinging to the surface.
    Carefully snap together and enjoy another 6-12 months of good service until the next cleaning.
    Note: When apart, snap some pictures so you know where the tabs are for easier removal next time ! ! !

The mute button does not mute the tv


Follow the instructions on the back of the Shaw remote control to program the remote to be compatible with your TV.
Once you have done that, the volume up/down/mute controls on the remote will work.

Hi- My name is Shannon and I am with Suddenlink. The SL-TiVo remote can be programmed to control the TV and one other A/V device using these steps:

1)
From TiVo Central, select Settings & Messages > Settings > Remote, CableCARD, & Devices > Remote Control.

2) Highlight Part 1: TV power, volume, and mute and press SELECT.

3) The DVR displays a list of television brands. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW buttons and the CHAN DOWN and CHAN UP buttons on the TiVo remote to highlight your TV brand and then press SELECT.

4) The TV Remote Codes screen appears. Follow the instructions on this screen to enter a code into your remote control. If the first code does not work, repeat the instructions to enter the second remote control code, and so forth, until you find a code that works. The remote is now programmed to operate the TV.

5) If also programming to control volume & mute on an A/V receiver for surround sound; Highlight Part 2: A/V volume and mute and press SELECT.

6) The DVR displays a list of audio/video receiver brands. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW buttons and the CHAN DOWN and CHAN UP buttons on the TiVo remote to highlight your receiver brand and then press SELECT.

The TiVo remote will now turn the TV on/off and switch inputs and adjust the volume and mute the audio on the receiver.

NEED SONY CODES FOR PHILLIPS REMOTE


Universal Remote Control Simple Setup

* Point it at a TV set and press the Mute/Power button. (Mute button if TV is already on, or Power button if the TV hasnt already been turned on)

* Keep pointing it at the TV until the TV turns on or muted, most TVs respond in about 5 seconds, the most is up to 20 seconds. (Other universal television remote you find in stores take minutes to program and enter long confusing codes)

* Once the TV is muted or turns on, simply let go of button and you have total control. You can use the remote as if you had the original remote, and responds instantly. ENJOY YOUR FREEDOM of choices with our remote!
Most remote controls require minutes of programming a universal remote code into each television while you read the confusing instruction manual.

If your tv is HD mute wont work.

This is for programming the uverse remote to the vizo tv. From my understanding the uverse box doesn't have a code.

The sharper image jumbo touch panel remote control, can program every appliance (tv, dvd,etc.) except my directv hd receiver. no codes listed in booklet for the hd receiver, tried the codes for regular...


The instructions that came with my remote were COMPLETELY incorrect. I made note in pen in my jumbo remote manual. After hours of searching the web and piecing together various blogs, I wrote these easy-to-use instructions:
  1. Place the jumbo remote and your old remote on a flat surface, head to head, with a 1" to 2" space in between (the remotes should be aiming at eachother).
  2. Press and HOLD the device button on the jumbo remote (eg. TV) until the jumbo remote's small indicator light turns solid red.
  3. Press the LEARN button once on the jumbo remote. The light will blink rapidly.
  4. On the jumbo remote, press the button that you want to perform the learned action (eg. If you want the jumbo remote to turn your TV on and off, press the POWER button on the jumbo remote).
  5. Press the same button on your old remote (eg. POWER button on my old tv remote control). When the jumbo remote's light changes from rapid flashing to slower flashing, press ENTER on the jumbo remote.
  6. You're done! Try the jumbo remote out (eg. Aim the jumbo remote at your TV, press the jumbo remote's TV button, then press the jumbo remote's POWER button). Your television should turn on or off with your jumbo remote.
You can program any jumbo remote button this way (eg. MENU, EXIT, MUTE). Just make sure you press the same button on each remote in steps 4 and 5 (eg. MENU on jumbo remote, MENU or LIST on old remote).

Remote control not working


have you program first the remote control, to work on your TV..??

Heres a few instructions how to programmed your remote..

  1. Test your remote control. To find out whether your remote control can operate the component without programming, turn on the component such as a VCR and press the corresponding MODE button (VCR) on the remote control, while illuminating on the selected component. Test the POWER button to see if the component responds properly. If not, the remote requires programming to operate the device.
  2. Turn on the component to be programmed, then press the corresponding MODE button on the remote control.
  3. Press the MENU and MUTE buttons simultaneously for 2 seconds, the button selected component lights on the remote control. If you don't press any button for 20 seconds, the button selected component will turn off on the remote control. At a moment, you have to repeat from step 2.
  4. Enter a code number using the number buttons on the remote. When pressing the button, the light is blinked at a time. Programming code numbers for the corresponding component can be found on the following pages. Again, if the code is correct, the device will turn off.
  5. Press the MENU button to store the code. After blinking twice, this code is stored.
  6. Test the remote control functions to see if the component responds properly. If not, repeat from step 2.
Try 001 as the PCode.

Thanks..
