How to Enter RCA Remote Codes

By Matthew Fortuna

Remote programming on most universal remotes offered by RCA can be done in just minutes, with only a few clicks of your remote's buttons. Programming requires the codes for each device that you would like to control. Once programmed, your devices will work with your remote simply by clicking from one button to another. Because the RCA remote is universal, it can be programmed to nearly any manufacturer brand of television, DVR, VCR or DVD player.

Step 1

Turn on the device that you would like to access with your remote. Press and hold the "Code Search" button on your remote.

Step 2

Continue to hold the "Code Search" button and press and release the button on your remote for the component that you are programming ("DVD," "TV," etc.). "Code Search" should automatically find the three-digit code for the device you want to program.

Step 3

Enter the three-digit code for your component on the remote and release the "Code Search" button.

Step 4

Click the "On/Off" button on your remote until the device responds by turning off.
