How to Program a Sylvania Remote

By Matthew Fortuna

Sylvania remotes are popular throughout the United States and the world for their compatibility with a number of television brands. These brands include RCA, Toshiba, Sanyo, Panasonic, Magnavox, Fisher and Hitachi, among others. Like similar remotes, the Sylvania offers a wide range of controlling options and can be synced to work with a cable setup and VCR or DVD player as well. Programming a Sylvania remote can be done in just minutes at home, with no prior experience, and you will be able to use your remote immediately.

Step 1

Turn on your television and aim the Sylvania remote at the TV and press the volume up or down button.

Step 2

Press the "TV" button on the remote after releasing the volume button.

Step 3

Use the remote's keypad to enter the two-digit code for your television brand. This can be found in your remote's instruction manual or on the link in the "References" section below.

Step 4

Press the "Enter" button on the remote after entering your code.

Step 5

Press the channel up or down button on your remote to finish the program and make sure the set-up was successful.

Step 6

Repeat the same steps, pressing a different component button instead of "TV," to program the other devices in your entertainment center.
