If the codes do not work then the only other option is to do the following steps to PowerScan through the remotes codes to see which one will work. If none work then the remote does not accept your tv.

Step 1: Manually turn off the device you wish to program (TV, VCR, DVD)

Step 2: Press and hold the appropriate device key (TV, VCR, DVD) until the red LED illuminates. This indicates that the remote is in programming mode.

Step 3: Press and release the power button. The LED flashes once and stays ON. Indicating that the remote is in PowerScan mode.

Step 4: Press either CH+ or CH- button repeatedly until the device switches on. The CH+ button searches upward in the code list while the CH- button searches downward.

Step 5: When the device turns on, press and release the OK button to store the new code and exit.
NOTE: If you press the CH+ or CH- again after the device turns on, the device will not be programmed and you will need to repeat steps 1 - 5.

Step 6: Press any other operable button (VOL+ or VOL-). If the device responds,

Programing jumbo remote brookstone to my vizio tv.


Use CODE SEARCH to find something that can handle all (or most) Vizio functions. If searching through all codes stored in the remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not store all possible codes.

I have a RCA television model # L40FHD41YX9. I lost the original remote and have bought four different universal remotes but none of them will program to my television. How can I fix this problem.


You can order a remote directly from RCA but they are really expensive. The largest database of online remote codes I know of is Logitech Harmony. I would buy a Harmony Universal Remote.

Cheers,

Kevin

I am trying to program a universal remote for my curtis mathis tv/vcr combo. None of the codes that came with the remote work. Any ideas what else to try?


Look further in the instruction book and you can find a place where you can search the codes. If that doesn't work you may need a different type remote. You can also at last resort buy the exact one you need online from http://www.remotes.com/

I need instructions and codes to program jumbo remote control


Try this, just be patient when programing it might take a couple of minutes to program.
Here you go. This will work with most all universal remote controls. If you don't have the code do the following:
Automatic Programming
With automatic programming, the remote control tests all the codes available on the Code List and assigns the correct code for the selected device. Although this method can be more time-consuming, it eliminates the need to look up codes and enter them manually.

1. Turn off the device with which you want to use the remote control.

2. Press and hold the corresponding button on the remote control
(TV, VCR, SAT, DVD, CAB or AUD) until POWER INDICATOR illuminates. It should take a couple of seconds for the light to remain solid. The remote control is in programming mode.

3. Press and release power button. The POWER INDICATOR flashes once and stays on indicating the unit is in Power Scan mode.

4. Press CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down repeatedly until the device turns on.

5. When the device turns on, press OK to store the code.

Note:
• To exit without storing the code, press BACK.
• T he unit will search for the next code or the previous code if you press
CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down after the device turns on. (go slow you need to press OK when the TV turns on) if you mess up turn TV off and start over.
6. Press any other button. If the device responds, the remote control has been programmed. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 2-5.

My remote broke and I can't find a replacement that will work.


I crushed my AKAI remote a week after I got it and I purchased a Logitech Harmony remote. It's kind of expensive (100.00) but you install the software in your computer and connect the remote to your computer. A screen comes up and you can type in an unlimited number of devices. All you do is put in the brand and model number and the computer will program the remote for that device. I have at least 10 different devices programmed into mine and works perfectly. Actually the price isn't bad because they wanted 85.00 to replace the remote just for the TV.

Learning eye


The remote can be programmed with any other remote control. You place the remote control you want the universal remote to learn from in front of the learning eye and hit the correct key combination to teach it the codes for your particular remote. There are no remote codes because none are needed. It learns straight from the original remote. No compatibility problems. Hope that helps.
