How Do I Program My Sony DVD Remote Control?

You may have been forced to purchase a new or used remote control for a Sony DVD player if the original remote for that device is malfunctioning or has been misplaced. Even if the remote that you want to use is a Sony remote, it may still need to be programmed to your particular Sony DVD player. A Sony DVD remote can be programmed by inputting a code or by cycling through different codes until you stumble upon the right code.
