Thank you for choosing this universal remote control. This product has been designed and manufactured to extremely high standards and if used properly will provide many years of reliable service.
Your universal remote control is powered by two 1.5 V AAA batteries. We recommend only new alkaline batteries are used. Never combine new and old batteries together as this will shorten the battery life and affect the performance of the remote. After inserting the batteries, press any key on the remote, if the Red LED flashes this indicates that the batteries have been inserted correctly. Please note: Always insert the batteries as shown at the inside of the battery slot. Immediately remove a battery if it shows any sign of leaking. Dispose of used batteries as recommended by the manufacturer.
1. How to program your universal remote control
The appendix of this manual contains a list of 4-digit codes that allow you to program your universal remote control to operate your television set, video recorder, SAT receiver or DVD player. Putting in the right code for your device Your remote is pre-programmed with many different 4-digit codes. These codes are specific to remote control and have no relationship to the original model number of your device or your original remote control number. In the separate code list booklet there are a number of 4-digit codes listed against each manufacturer. In order to operate your remote you will need to find the correct code for your particular model of your device. This may mean that you will have to try several codes before gaining satisfactory operation of your device. Step 1. Look at your device and find out which brand it is i.e. Mitsubishi, Sony, Panasonic etc. Step 2. Look up the makers brand name in your code list book. Step 3. Input the first of the 4 digit codes listed for that manufacturer, if nothing happens there is no need to contact the Helpdesk, simply move onto the next code in the list and try again. Keep moving through the list until you have tried all of the codes. Tips with Code Numbers Q. I put in a code, which works my TV, but the Teletext or some other function is not working? A. This is fairly normal when programming for the first time. It simply means you have the wrong code number for your TV. Each code number relates to a specific group or type of remote within your brand. If a certain function fails to work try the next code in the list before calling the Helpline. Q. My brand of TV is not listed in the code book? A. Do not worry, simply read the section entitle “Automatic code scan”. You have two options to program your universal remote control • Recommendation: Manually enter codes listed in the appendix of this manual • Alternatively: Run automatic code scan For the programming of your remote control, we recommend to initially use the code list included in the appendix of this manual. These codes are specific to each device manufacturer and are thus specifically geared to fulfil all necessary functions. Alternatively, you can try the automatic code scan to detect the correct code. This function might be useful if your device brand is not listed in the code list or if certain functions appear not to be available with direct code entry. As the code scan searches through a large number of codes, it might take up to 8 minutes until the scan is completed.
universal remote control initially needs your assistance to work properly. All programming is based on the 5-second rule: every step in these instructions must be completed within 5 seconds after the previous step. Otherwise, the remote control returns to standard operating mode. This rule ensures that your remote control is not inadvertently reprogrammed by another user.
Step 1 Insert the batteries (correct position is indicated at the base of the battery slot). Step 2 Select the device that you wish to control with your universal remote control by turning the disk until the arrow points to the desired device, (e.g. TV). (only for M5) Step 3 Switch on your device (to programme the remote control for the TV set, ensure that the television shows a picture). Step 4 Press the key and keep it pressed until the LED flashes twice in quick succession. (after approx. 2 seconds). Step 5 Within 5 seconds of seeing the 2 flashes above, enter the 4 digit code indicated for your device in the separate code list book. Step 6 After you have entered the code the LED will flash twice, indicating that the code has been accepted by your universal remote control. This does not necessarily mean it is the correct code for your model of device. Step 7 Press the key to check whether your universal remote control is working properly. If your device is thereby set to standby mode, check all other functions of the remote control. If certain functions are not available or not working properly, refer to the next code in the list and repeat the programming procedure from step 3. Step 8 Please keep this booklet in a safe place for future use! Tips If your device does not respond to any of the code numbers: Q. None of the code numbers worked? A. This might be because more than 5 seconds lapsed before you entered the code or because you input an invalid code number In this case, check that you have entered the correct 4-digit code or repeat the programming procedure with the next code in the list whilst observing the 5 second programming rule. Q. My brand of TV is not listed in the code book? A. Do not worry, simply read the section entitle “Automatic code scan”.
Programming for AUX devices (only M5)
The AUX option allows you to control an additional device with your universal remote control. By positioning the disk to point to DVD/AUX, you have the option to control a second TV set, video recorder or SAT receiver instead of a DVD player. To program your remote control for a second TV set, please proceed as described in the programming instructions for television sets. However, you must ensure that the rotary pointer is positioned at DVD/AUX. For programming, please following the above instructions for quick setup. PLEASE NOTE! With manual code entry, all codes (TV, VCR, SAT and DVD) are permitted for selection DVD/AUX. However, the automatic code scan for DVD/AUX only searches for DVD codes.
Programming your universal remote control with automatic code scan Important: We recommend manually entering and trying all codes given for your device before running an automatic code scan. If the listed codes are not working for your TV set, etc., or if the manufacturer of your device is not listed, you have the option to let the remote control find a suitable code by means of the automatic code scan. During this procedure, every code is tested on your devise and a signal is sent approximately every 2 seconds. As soon as a suitable code has been found, the device will respond according to the key that has been pressed. You must now test the other functions of your remote control. If some of them appear not to be available, this might be due to the fact that only the first of many matching codes has been detected so far. In this case, continue with the code scan until a more suitable code is found. Please be patient, as a great number of different codes must be tried out during the scanning process. It might therefore take up to 8 minutes until the correct code for your device is found.
How to run an automatic code scan (code 0020)
Step 1 Switch on the respective device. For television sets, ensure that a picture is displayed. If your TV set is in standby mode, switch it on fully.

key to save the found code.
IMPORTANT! After the device has been switched off (step 5), you have the option to test the control functions. If a selected code does not support all required functions, press the key to go to the next code. After all saved codes have been scanned, the LED flashes three times.
How can I run a code scan for one manufacturer only (code 0021)?
To run a code scan that is limited to the codes of one specific manufacturer, proceed as described for "automatic code scan" (see above chapter). However, in this case enter code 0021 followed by the code of your device manufacturer. This code is listed in the appendix of this manual. IMPORTANT! As soon as the red LED flashes three times, the scan through the codes of your manufacturer is completed. If your device has not yet responded, run an automatic code scan.
Identifying the correct 4-digit code (after having run an automatic code scan)
After using the automatic scan mode the remote will have selected a code which is unknown to you. Its important to know which code has been found so that it can be reinstalled should something happen to the remote. Please follow the steps below. Step 1 Select the device that you wish to control with your universal remote control by turning the disk until the arrow points to the desired device. (only for M5) Step 2 Press the key until the LED flashes twice (after approx. 2 seconds). Step 3 Within 5 seconds enter code 0030. The red LED flashes twice, indicating that the remote control is now in "code identify mode". Step 4 To identify the currently saved code, press the following keys: for first digit for second digit for third digit for fourth digit These keys must be pressed in the above sequence. After each digit key has been pressed, count the number of times the red LED flashes. To repeat the reading procedure, press any of the four keys again within 5 seconds. Repeat the reading until you are sure that you have the correct code written down. When reading the code, also include the initial flash of the LED upon the pressing of keys into your count. PLEASE NOTE! If the LED does not flash after you have pressed one of the above selection keys, the respective code digit is 0. Example: Press key for thousands. The LED flashes once. The first digit of your 4-digit code is thus 1. Press key for thousands. The LED flashes three times. The second digit of your 4-digit code is thus 3. Press key for tens. The LED flashes five times. The third digit of your 4-digit code is thus 5. Press key for units. The LED flashes three times. The last digit of your 4-digit code is thus 3. In this example, the code is thus 1353. We recommend that you write down the codes for your device in the respective field in this manual so that they are available in case you need to re-program your universal remote control. Please keep this booklet in a safe place for future use! Write down the 4-digit codes here:
