Battery Installation

Your universal remote requires two (2) AAA Alkaline batteries (not included).

To Install the Batteries:

  1. Remove the battery compartment cover by sliding the cover down.
  2. Match the (+) and (-) marks on the batteries to the (+) and (-) marks inside the battery compartment, then insert two (2) AAA Alkaline batteries. Be sure to use fresh batteries.
  3. Slide the battery compartment cover back into place.

Note: If your remote stops operating properly, replace the batteries with new ones. The remote will retain the codes you have programmed for up to 10 minutes after the batteries are removed.

Battery Precautions:

  • Do not mix old and new batteries.
  • Do not mix alkaline, standard (carbon-zinc), or rechargeable (Ni-Cd, Ni-MH, etc.) batteries.
  • Always remove old, weak or worn-out batteries promptly and recycle or dispose of them in accordance with local and national regulations.

Care and Maintenance

  • Keep the remote away from moisture. If it gets wet, dry it immediately.
  • Use and store the remote at normal household temperatures.
  • Use a soft, damp cloth to clean the remote.
  • If the remote is not going to be used for a long period of time, remove the batteries
    from the remote.
  • Handle the remote with care.

Button Functions

Programming Your Remote

Your ONN universal remote control is designed to control up to 4 different audio/video devices such as TV, DVD, VCR, satellite, cable and audio using only one remote. To use this remote, you will need to program it to control the devices of your choice. There are two ways to program the remote – direct code entry or auto code search.

Direct Code Entry (Recommended)

1. Locate the Remote Code List provided in this manual. Find the DEVICE CATEGORY you wish to program (for example TV, DVD, SAT, AUX) and then find the BRAND of that device. Circle all the codes under that brand. Example: For a GE TV, locate the TV code section then circle all of the GE TV codes.

2. Manually turn on the device you wish to control.

3. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator light stays on (approximately 2 seconds) and then release the SETUP button.

4. Press and release the desired device button on the remote (TV, DVD, SAT, AUX). The red indicator will blink once and then remain on.

5. Enter the first 4-digit code previously found in the code list using the number buttons on the remote. If the code entered is a valid code, the red indicator light will turn off. If the code entered is not a valid code, the red indicator light will flash and remain on allowing you to re-enter the code.

Note: If no buttons are pressed for 35 seconds, the remote will exit the SETUP mode and you will have to start over.

6. Point the remote at the device. Press the POWER button—if the device turns off, no further programming is required for that device. If the device does not turn off, return to step 3 and use the next code found in the code list. Continue this process until a code for your device is found.

Programming Notes

  • If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
  • Sometimes the first code that “works” with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
  • You can use any device button to control other devices in your home entertainment system. For example, you can use the AUX device button to control an audio receiver or a DVD, VCR, satellite, etc.
  • For combination devices, you may have to enter a code for each device. For example, for a VCR/DVD device, you may have to enter a code for the DVD under the DVD button and enter a code for the VCR using a different device button on the remote.
  • Write down the code found to operate your device for future reference.

Auto Code Search
The Auto Code Search searches automatically through all of the codes stored in this remote. Read all the following steps prior to starting the auto search as you will need to be prepared to lock-in the proper code when found.

1. Manually turn on the device you wish to control.

2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator light stays on (approximately 4 seconds) and then release the button.

3. Press and release the desired device button on the remote (TV, DVD, SAT, AUX). The red indicator will blink once and then remain on.

4. Point the remote at the device and press and release the POWER button (for TV) or PLAY button (for DVD, VCR, etc.) to start the search. The red indicator will flash (approximately every 2 seconds) as the remote searches. Note: The remote must be pointed at the device for the duration of this search.

5. Place your finger on the #1 button so you are prepared to lock-in the code.

6. When the device shuts off or begins playing, press the #1 button to lock-in the code. The red indicator light will turn off. Note: You have approximately two seconds after the device shuts off or begins playing to lock-in the code.

7. Point the remote at the device and check to see if the remote operates the device as desired. If it does, no further programming is required for that device. If it does not, return to step 2 and start the auto search.

Programming Notes

  • This process may take several minutes as the remote contains many codes.
  • The SETUP button can be used during the search process to reverse the direction of the search of the remote codes. For example, if you miss the code for your device and the remote is continuing to search (as indicated by the blinking red light), press the SETUP button and the code search will reverse direction and return to the code.
  • When using the Auto Code Search programming method, the device button corresponding to the type of device you want to control must be selected (for example, the TV device button must be selected in step 3 if you want to control a TV, the DVD/VCR device button for a DVD player, etc.)
  • Sometimes the first code that “works” with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Continue the code search as directed above until the best code is found.

Controlling Combo Devices
Some Combo devices (e.g. TV/VCR, TV/DVD, DVD/VCR, etc.) will require you to setup up two different Mode buttons to control both parts of the Combo device. For example, if you have a TV/DVD Combo, you might need to set up one code under the TV button to control the TV part AND a separate code (under any other Mode button) to control the DVD part.

Master Volume Feature

Master Volume Feature
The Master Volume Feature allows you to select a single device (TV or audio receiver) that the volume control always controls. For example, the remote can be in TV mode while the volume buttons control the volume on your audio receiver instead of your TV.

Enabling the Master Volume Feature

1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on (approximately 4 seconds) and then release the button.

2. Press and release desired device button (TV, DVD, SAT, AUX) for the device you wish to setup to control the volume.

3. Press and release the MUTE button.

4. Press and release the VOL + button. The red indicator will blink twice and then go off.

To test the feature put the remote in another mode such as the TV mode if you programmed the audio receiver to be the Master Volume Device. Point the remote at the audio receiver, press and hold either the VOL + or the VOL – button. If the audio receiver volume changes then the remote is programmed correctly. If the TV volume changes and not the audio receiver, you will have to repeat the steps above and test again.

Disabling the Master Volume Feature

1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on (approximately 4 seconds) and then release the button.

2. Press and release the device button (TV, DVD, SAT, AUX) which is programmed to control the Master Volume Feature.

3. Press and release the MUTE button.

4. Press and release the VOL – button. The red indicator light will blink twice and go off.

To make sure the Master Volume Feature is disabled, put the remote in TV mode if you programmed the audio receiver to be the Master Volume Device. Point the remote at the TV and press a volume button. If the volume changes on the TV, the feature is disabled. If the volume on the audio receiver changes, and not the TV, you will have to repeat the steps above and test again.

Reset to Factory Settings

1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on (approximately 4 seconds) and then release the button.

2. Press and release the OK button.

3. Press and release the number #0 button. The red indicator light will flash twice.
