Come 1983 Hyundai Corporation became a player in the semiconductor industry through the establishment of Hyundai Electronics which was 2001 renamed Hynix.

Hyundai TVs Remote Control Codes and Set-up Guide

Instruction to set-up the Hyundai TV Remote control

The most basic step you have to take to get your remote and TV to communicate is to pair the devices. This requires a clear path that allows your TV set to receive signals during the programming process. It is also worth remembering that universal remotes use 3, 4, or 5 –digit codes to sync with different TV sets, although not all the listed codes usually work. You, therefore, have to try out the different codes when the code used first fails.

The step-by-step process to sync your remote and TV is provided here-below.

  • Press and hold the program (“PRG”) button on your remote for at least 3 seconds. This action will cause the LED light on the remote to turn on and remain lighting during the entire programming process.
  • Press on the “TV” button on your remote to let it know it needs to sync with your TV. Besides the “TV” button, your universal remote is likely to have buttons to connect it to other devices like VCR and DVD player.
  • Feed the 3, 4 or 5-digit code into your remote then press “Enter”. If the code you entered is accepted, your TV will turn on upon pressing the POWER button. As long as this light remains on, you should continue down the list of provided codes until you reach the correct one!
  • Once you have established the correct code, verify by pressing the VOLUME + button. Your TV volume should rise/increase!
  • Press on your “TV” button to store the 3, 4 or 5-digit code. This action will trigger your TV-set to blink twice to confirm the code is stored!

Troubleshooting Hyundai TV Remote Control Codes:

Due to the fact that electronic appliances are programmed using particular software to work in certain ways when an error occurs in their software programs, they generate and display an error code.

This error code is a specific number to identify what the error is to the system. Any corrective step taken to resolve such a problem is called troubleshooting.

Below are common troubleshooting steps you should take to resolve code errors displayed by electronic appliances like a Hyundai TV.

Step 1

  • Find the list of the manufacturer’s codes/numbers for your brand of TV (Hyundai in this case). These codes are to be found in the booklet that comes with your remote. You can also find them online in the manufacturer’s website just in case they are not provided!
  •  Manually or remotely turn ON your TV with the remote that came with your TV set.
  • On the remote accompanying your TV, press the “TV” button once.
  • Press and hold the “SETUP” button until the “TV” button on your remote blinks twice.
  • Input the 4-digit code retrieved from the Instruction booklet.

Note: You should see the “TV” button on your remote blink twice.

  • Press the “VOLUME” Up (+) button several times.

Note: If your TV volume adjusts, this is to indicate that you used the correct code.  If the volume does not adjust, you should repeat the steps above using the next available code until you find the correct one.

Step 2

  • Turn both your TV and cable box on.
  • Press on your remote’s “CBL” button.
  • Press and hold the “SETUP” button until the “CBL” light blinks twice, then release.
  • Input 9 9 5 and press the “POWER” button.
  • Press both “TV” and “POWER” buttons.
  • Gently press on your “CBL” button, followed by “PWR” button.
  • Press “CBL” separately.
  • Long press on “SETUP” button until your “CBL” button blinks twice. 


  • You can confirm that your remote has been properly programmed by directly aiming the remote at both your TV and cable box and pressing on the “POWER” button once. Both appliances (your TV and cable box) should go off after a few seconds!
  • If both your TV and cable box go off, you have correctly programmed the remote. 
  • If the TV and cable box remains on, you should repeat the steps above until it is correctly done!
