Programming Instructions

Follow these steps to program the remote control.

IMPORTANT: The numeric codes are not provided for this model because the frequencies are built in to the remote control and display during the programming process.

  1. On the remote control, press the HOME button.
  2. At the HOME screen, use the right and left arrow buttons to select Setup.
  3. Use the up and down arrow buttons to select Remote Controller Settings Guide, then press the ENTER button.
  4. Use the up and down arrow buttons to select Preset Mode, then press the ENTER button. Note: At any time, if you do not operate the remote for more than 10 seconds, the remote will automatically exit from Preset Mode.
  5. Use the up and down arrow buttons to select the component type that you want to operate with the remote, then press the ENTER button.
  6. Use the up and down arrow buttons to select the appropriate component manufacturer, then press the ENTER button.
  7. Press and hold the TV button (for a television) or STB button (for a cable box, digital satellite receiver, digital video recorder, etc.), and then press the POP UP/MENU button. Note: The remote will enter Preset mode and the TV or STB button (whichever button you pressed) will start flashing.
  8. Once the TV or STB button starts flashing, enter the code on the TV screen using the number buttons, then press the ENTER button. Note: If you successfully set the code, the TV or STB button will flash twice slowly. If the setting is unsuccessful, the button will flash five times quickly.

  • 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.
