When doing the code search for this remote, and you get to the point where the tv shuts off, you press the reverse button BUT the directions should say KEEP on pressing the REVERSE button EVERY 2 SECONDS until the tv turns back on.  THEN PRESS STOP.  The directions I kept on getting were sayng to press it but they did not specify how many times.  YOU NEED TO KEEP PRESSING REVERSE UNTIL IT TURNS ON, THEN PRESS STOP.  
I got these directions (after about an hour of searching sites I found) from

  1. f, after five seconds, the component does not respond, continue to press the PLAY button every five seconds until the component turns off.
  2. 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. 
  3. When the component turns off, press and release the REVERSE button, then wait two seconds to see if the component turns on again.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. To save the new code, press and release the STOP button.
  7. The illuminated ON-OFF button turns off. You must press the STOP button to save the code.
