Program your remote control to operate your VCR or DVD player

NOTE: Before you start, locate the remote codes for the VCR or DVD player and write them down.

Follow these steps to program your remote control to work with your VCR or DVD player:

  1. Press and hold the VCR button on the remote until the SAT, TV and AUX buttons light up.
  2. Let go of the VCR button. It should start to flash.
  3. While the VCR button is flashing, enter one of the 3-digit codes for the VCR or DVD player that you wrote down earlier.
  4. After entering the 3-digit code, press the # button on the remote. If the code was entered successfully, the VCR button will flash 3 times.
  5. Next, try to control the VCR or DVD player by playing or rewinding a tape or DVD.
  6. If the remote did not control the VCR or DVD player, repeat steps 1 to 5 with another code from the list.

If you tried all the codes provided for the manufacturer, try the following to find another code.

  1. Make sure the VCR or DVD player is on.
  2. Press the Power button on the remote control. The VCR button will stay lit.
  3. Press the up arrow on the remote every second until the VCR or DVD player turns off.
  4. When the VCR or DVD player turns off, press the # button on the remote to lock in the code. If the scan was successful, the VCR light should flash 3 times.

Your remote should now be programmed to work with your VCR or DVD player.

Unfortunately, while we try to accommodate every type of VCR or DVD player, some may not be supported.

Program your remote control to operate another device

Program your remote control to operate another device

NOTE: Before you start, locate the remote codes for the device and write them down.

When programming a device to work with the AUX mode, you'll need to add a fourth digit in front of the 3-digit code you just wrote down. For example, if you want to use the AUX mode to control a second TV, and its 3-digit code is 500, you would need to enter 0500.

Here is a list of digits to add to the codes:

  • Add 0 to program a second TV
  • Add 1 to program a second VCR or DVD player
  • Add 2 to program a tuner or amplifier

Follow these steps to program your remote control to work with your other device:

  1. Press and hold the AUX button on the remote until the SAT, TV and VCR buttons light up.
  2. Let go of the AUX button. It should start to flash.
  3. While the AUX button is flashing, enter one of the 4-digit codes that you wrote down earlier.
  4. After entering the 4-digit code, press the # button on the remote. If the code was entered successfully, the AUX light should flash 3 times.
  5. Next, try to control the device.
  6. If the remote did not control the device, repeat steps 1 to 5 with another code from the list.
