Question about Universal Remote Control GE174Universal Remote Control
I have tried both the code search and the manual method of entering the codes provided with the Universal Remote and neither is working for me, can anyone help me?
If code search method too cannot help you, the remote control won't have a setup code to your TV. If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service center, or authorized dealer to your device brand.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its user manual. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. If you see the site by "MOSAIC" view, will make surf easier.

i have the list of codes for the 40085 HTFB, but no instructions. (I assume this is because it's LIDL - their store security is a joke). Which code do you want? And do you want to swap for instructions on how to set up for a specific TV?

To use this universal remote with your home entertainment
system, first you need to program it to control your devices.
There are four ways you can program the universal remote to
operate your devices:
• The Auto Code Search goes automatically through all the
codes for the device you're trying to control. It's the easiest
method, but it can sometimes take longer than some of the
other programming methods.
• The Brand Code Search searches through the codes for
select brands of devices. It's not as easy as the auto code
search, but it can be faster.
• The Direct Code Entry lets you enter a code from the
accompanying code list for your brand of device. It's not as
easy as the other methods, but it's potentially the fastest
• The Manual Code Search lets you manually go through
all the codes for the device you're trying to control
Auto Code Search
The Auto Code Search goes automatically through all the
codes for the device you're trying to control. When you find
the one that operates your device, you can stop the search and
store that code.
1. Manually turn on the device you
want to control.
2. Press and hold the device key you want to program. While
you're holding down the device key, use your other hand
to press and hold the remote's ON•OFF key at the same

release both keys.
4. Point the remote directly at the
front panel of the device you
want to control. Press PLAY on
the remote and wait 5 seconds.
The remote is testing a batch of
10 codes on your device.
Did your device turn off?
YES: Go to step 5.
NO: Press PLAY again. The remote tests the next batch of
Keep pressing PLAY every 5 seconds until your device
5. When your device turns off, press
the REVERSE key on the remote
and wait at least 2 seconds.
The remote tries the last of the
previous ten codes.
Did your device turn on?
YES: Press the STOP key. You're
done! You've programmed this
NO: Press REVERSE again. The remote tests the next
code in the batch.
Keep pressing REVERSE every 2 seconds until your device
turns back on. When it does, press STOP.
Note: If you accidentally press the REVERSE key after your
device turns on, press the FORWARD key. Then, wait two
seconds to see if your device turns off again.
