How to Reprogram an RCA TV Remote

Reprogramming your RCA TV remote may be necessary if you have purchased a new television set, if the remote is not working properly or you programmed the remote incorrectly. Unless the remote came with your RCA TV, you will need to program or reprogram the remote in order to control the television set with the remote. The process for reprogramming an RCA TV remote is the same as you would use for initially programming the remote.
