Steps to follow:
1

Manually switch on the device you want to program. In this article you'll find step-by-step instructions, using the TV as an example. But don't forget that you can also program your DVD or Blu-Ray.

2

Press the TV button (DVD or Blu-Ray) on your RCA universal control and hold it down for 5 seconds. Without releasing it, press the POWER button with your free hand for about 15 seconds. A light on the ON-Off button will turn on and remain lit. When that happens, you can stop pressing both buttons.

3

Press and release the PLAY button until your TV turns off. If it does not turn off after five seconds by pressing PLAY, continue to do so every five seconds until it turns off.

4

Press and release the REVERSE button for two or three seconds until your TV turns on. If it doesn't work the first time, you can try several times. Always wait a few seconds between each try.

5

Once you get past this last step, press and release the STOP button to save the new code. All set! You've now programmed your RCA universal control successfully.

Tips
  • Each time you press the PLAY button in Step 5, the ON-OFF button will blink ten times and a list of 10 codes will be sent to your device. This process continues until all code lists have been searched for. If your device does not turn off after all codes have been searched for, the ON-OFF button will flash four times and end the Automatic Code Search.
  • If you do not press the STOP button at the end, the new code will not be stored.
