Worry not, we got a manual on how to program universal remote for any device. Here, you will also get universal remote control codes for any device.

First, you need to program universal remote for the device you want to operate. There is a list of universal remote control codes for each device. You need to enter the code and program universal remote for it. We will guide you to your solution and give you all universal remote control codes for each device. There will be one for you in there. So, let’s begin!

 

Universal Remote Codes

Check The Code List Version

First of all, you need to check the code list version of your universal remote control. There are three types of universal remote control codes. They are CL3, CL4, and CL5.

CL3 universal remote control codes start with zero and have three numbers (technically 4 digits) for example, 0275. CL4 has four as 5693, and CL5 has 5 digits as 38297.

To check your code list version, remove the batteries from the back. There you will find a sticker that will tell your remote’s CL version and its model. Take a note of it and put the batteries back.

How To Program Universal Remote Control

Now it’s time to program a universal remote for the desired device. There are two simple methods to program a universal remote.

 

1.    Input Direct Codes

1st Step: Press and hold on to the setup button. Keep it until the red light turns on. Once you see the red light, the controller is in setup mode.

2nd Step: Now press the device button that you want to operate with the universal remote control. If it has its light, it will turn on.

3rd Step: Now, enter the universal remote control code from the universal remote control codes list given below. After pressing the last digit of universal remote code, the red light will turn off.

4th Step: Now check the controller by pointing it in the direction of the device. Try basic functions like power on/off. If the device responds accordingly, then it has been set up.

5th Step: If it does not respond (if there is more than one code for a device), repeat the steps with the next code in the list until you find the correct one.

 

2.    Manual Codes Search

1st Step: Turn on the device that you want to control.

2nd Step: Press and hold the device’s button and the power button, both simultaneously. Hold on to them until the red light turns on. Then release them at the same time.

3rd Step: Point the universal remote control in the direction of the device and press the power button once. Wait for a while and see if the device is turned off.

4th Step: If the device turns off, then you get the correct universal remote code.

5th Step: If it doesn’t turn off, press the power button again until it turns off (you found the correct universal remote code).

6th Step: When you find it, press stop to save the universal remote control code. Also, test for basic functions.
