  1. Place the remote control on a flat surface.
  2. Place the remote control of the device to be controlled, head-to-head, and approximately 2 inches from the remote control being programmed.
  3. On the television remote control, set the PIP/VIDEO/CABLE selector and the VTR1/2/3/MDP selector to the appropriate position.
  4. Set the USE/LEARN selector to LEARN.
  5. Press and hold the button to be taught until the LEARN indicator lights up.
  6. On the other manufacturer's remote, press and hold the button to be learned until the LEARN indicator on the television remote goes off.
  7. Note: Repeat steps 5 and 6 for any other buttons that you may want to program.

  8. Set the USE/LEARN selector to USE

Notes:

  • If more than one code number is listed for your device brand, enter one code at a time until you find one that works.
  • If none of the codes listed for your device brand worked, try codes listed for other brands or perform a search for the correct code (available only on certain models). Check the manual for information about the search option.
  • The previously entered code number will be erased when you enter a new code on the remote.
  • You may need to reprogram the remote after replacing the batteries.
  • If programming fails, you may need to reset the remote control: Remove the batteries, press each button twice, and then put the batteries back in.
  • The operation of a combination deck of any kind is not guaranteed.
  • Some functions of a device may not be controllable by the remote. Please refer to the device manual for details.
  • You may not be able to operate your non-Sony equipment with this remote control. This occurs when the device uses codes not provided for this remote. In this case, please use the device's original remote control or purchase a universal remote control that has a learning function.
