RCA remote control

You can easily manage channels and content on a single device with the help of a remote. But if you have multiple devices at your home and each one has a different remote, it can become difficult to keep track of things. In that case, an RCA remote can be the ideal choice for you. However, it is not always easy to figure out how to program an RCA universal remote. This guide will list all the steps that you’ll need to take to program the remote to all your devices.

How to Program an RCA Universal Remote?

Connecting the remote to your device is an easy process. But first, you need to ensure that your remote has the right batteries. Also, make sure that there are no bad wire connections anywhere and the devices are powered on. Now, follow these instructions to set up your remote successfully:

If You Can Find a Code Search Button…

Setting up the RCA universal remote is quite easy. You can pull it off in two ways:

Method 1:

An easy way to program an RCA universal remote is through the Code Search Button. You just need to enter the device codes to connect the devices together. Here are all the steps that you need to take:

  1. Pick up your remote
  2. Find its device code in the manual
  3. If you can’t find it there, use the ‘code finder’ instead
  4. Turn on the device
  5. Search for the ‘Code Search button’ on your remote
  6. Press and hold it for a few seconds
  7. Press the button that looks like your device
  8. The dim light on your remote will start to blink
  9. Wait for it to get steady
  10. Now enter the remote code details
  11. Wait for the light from the remote to turn off
  12. Perform various remote functions to see if it’s working
  13. You are all set up!

Method 2:

If the above-mentioned process didn’t work for you, this means that you were not able to find the code for your device. You can find the code through the ‘Code Search’ button. Here are all the steps you need to take:

  1. Switch on your device
  2. Search for the ‘Code Search’ button your remote
  3. Press and hold it for a while
  4. Wait for the light to turn on
  5. Press the button that looks like your device
  6. The dim light on your remote will start to blink
  7. Wait for it to get steady
  8. Now look for the ‘power’ button on your remote
  9. Press it to allow it to send another code to your device
  10. Continue with the process for a while
  11. Wait for the device to turn off
  12. Now search for the ‘Enter’ button on your remote
  13. Pressing it will automatically save the code
  14. Perform various remote functions to see if it’s working
  15. You are all set up!

If the device doesn’t turn off and the remote light blinks a few times simultaneously, this means that the remote codes have not matched. So, you won’t be able to operate your device with this remote.

If You Can’t Find the Code Search Button…

If you can’t find a ‘Code Search’ button on your remote, you’ll need to adopt a different method to enjoy services like Spectrum TV packages on your TV or other devices. Here are all the steps that you’ll need to take:

  1. Switch on your device
  2. Press the button on your remote that looks like your device
  3. The dim light on your remote will start to blink
  4. Wait for it to get steady
  5. Now look for the ‘power’ button on your remote
  6. Press and hold it for a while
  7. Wait for the light to turn off
  8. After it turns on, let go of the device and power buttons
  9. Check if the power button light stays on
  10. If not, then repeat the whole process
  11. Press the ‘power button’ to allow it to send another code to your device
  12. Continue with the process for a while
  13. Wait for the device to turn off
  14. Now search for the ‘Stop’ button on your remote
  15. Pressing it will automatically save the code
  16. Perform various remote functions to see if it’s working
  17. You are all set up!

If the device doesn’t turn off on its own, then it implies that the assigned codes haven’t matched. So, the remote won’t work for your device. Now do the same process for other devices at your home to operate all of them with a single remote.

If the Buttons Don’t Work…

While following the steps to program an RCA universal remote to your device, a problem can arise. Your power button might seem to work but the other buttons don’t. There can be two reasons behind this.

If you have used the wrong remote code, then this problem is likely to occur. You can use a new code on the same device to resolve this problem.

Sometimes, the device can turn off and it may seem like your remote has become connected with your device. However, the remote might not support your device fully. If your device is quite technical and can perform a range of functions, then this problem is likely to occur. So, you’ll need to get rid of this remote and buy a new one for your device.

How to Buy the Remote?

There are several places where you can buy it:

  • Grocery shops
  • Medical stores
  • Family stores

No matter where you buy it from, you can get it for a really cheap price. Just by spending $10, you can manage 4 devices at your home with a single remote.
