Philips Universal Remote Control

I bought a new Philips Universal Remote Control at Wal-Mart this afternoon to replace the old RCA TV control.
The old one is still working except the volume up button. It is need 4 AAA batteries.
I tried my best to fix this button including open the controler and cleaning. All failed.
I saw the Universal Remote Control is about $9 with 3 devices, such as TV, VCR/DVD, Cable/Sat. This 3 devices controler has lowerst price. Some 4 or 5 devices may double the price.
philips-remote-control

When I install the batteries and try to search the code, firstly I did not success with the direct code entry.
It has a list of codes for different brand devices.


I have to try the second way by programming with code search. It is much easy.
1) Manually turn on the device (TV, DVD) to be controlled.
2) Press and hold code search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the code search button.
3) Press and release the desired mode button (TV, DVD,etc)
4) Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel.
5) Press and release the Mute button to install the code.
This is a log for future use.

As agreed I post a menu of code in the post

  26. Thank you David, I had an old Sony TV that I decided to sell but couldn’t find the remote. I went to Wal Mart and purchased this one. After about 2 hours using the instructions provided I couldn’t get it to work, so I just threw it in the closet. I decided to try again after finding your blog, within a minute it was working.
    Very Grateful, Ron.

  27. Do you have the code for a zenith t.v

  33. Hello!
    I was able to control my TV/VCR with this same remote control. Even though the 1st code did not function, I tried the 2nd code in line and it worked.
    Now, the problem I have is that with this control I cannot access the MENU from the Remote Control and neither can I from the TV.
    Any suggestions or help, please email me:
    support@studiochristian.com
    Thanks!

  34. thanks for the info! i lost my manual some time ago.

  35. OH MY GOSH!! Thanks so much for the special trick!!

  36. i have a philips usa 4 device universal remote and i need the codes to connect to my tv

  37. It seems the direct method won’t work no matter what I input. After I enter a three digit code, the red indicator keeps on.
    The “try” method can be also used for DVD. Just turn on DVD, and press power button repeatedly until the DVD is off. You have to be patient to use the method. Do not press the button too fast. Otherwise, you will miss the found code and you have to try again. One thing I figured out is that the code search is not always started from a fixed beginning. So if you missed once, you have press button for about 300 times for your next chance.

  38. i tried with this instructions it is working but some keys does not work like i cannot play/Pause next Prev. Etc. also i cannot able to go to Setup.
    Is there any suggetions?
    thnx

  39. Pressing enter worked, glad I didn’t give up and kept reading =) Thanks!

  40. This worked great for me. I did exactly what you said and it worked perfectly. The internet is always a valuable source of information.

  41. Hey! Really Appreciate it! I used your second way of programming and it worked great. I missed it the first time and had to click chan up another like 200 times,but we got it.
    Thanks,
    Chad

  42. Hey man, I had your same problem, being that my TV was stuck on video, but i figured it out. Hold the code search button until it stays solid, then hit the TV button, and press the channel up button repeatedly until the word VIDEO pops up on your screen, then press the mute button, and you are good. Hope it helps.

  43. Just to let everyone know.. The model for the above pictured remote is US2-PM435S

  50. i have a sharp tv and have recently bought this philips universal remote control. it works pretty well but the only problem is that i cannot do channel search!!! dont have cable yet and i just want to watch what i can until cable arrives. any ideas? how can i scan channels with this remote?

  51. Thanks, was just what I needed to find the code, 2nd website I checked.

  52. David,
    First off … I’ve scanned the comments section of this post. (You’re a saint).
    I think we can help each other. The following link will lead everyone to the Philips support site, which has all of the universal remote manuals. So instead of answering everyone individually, they can just print out the codes for future reference.
    http://www.urc.philips.com/
    The picture of your remote (and the year you bought it, at Wal-Mart) matches my remote, exactly. It;s the only time I’ve seen the 3-device referenced on the net.
    Anyway, if you’d be so kind as to give me the model (as it relates to the above link – starts with GVU, MRU, etc.) and the number (e.g. GVU 1100, 1242, etc.), I’d be supremely happy.
    (My DVD player will work again!)
    Again, David – thank you so much for responding to everyone, and helping us all out.

  84. Oh man…you are a genious!!! I have been tearing my house apart and scrounged the internet trying to find the code for an old set of mine. Your sight was the only one I found helpful!! I definately owe you that cup of coffee!!
    Thanks a million
    Tammy

  85. DOES ANYONE HAVE THE CODES FOR A SANYO TELEVISION, THANKS

  86. tanx alot bro i realize the remote needs a 4 figure number and it waz impossible to program it!!

  87. How do you change the code with this listed (above) method if its for a DVD player–there are no “Channels” to change on a DVD player… ??? Help!

  88. Worked great! We found if you hit the channel button too many times after the channel changes, it won’t work. so be careful and u might have to try a couple times. We have a panasonic TV.. worked great 🙂

  89. EEEE NI99A!!!!!!!
    I GOT IT USING THE SECOND METHOD, THANXZ

  90. can you please e mail me the codes for a symphonic tv? i seem to have lost the code page to my remote. i’d really appreciate it!!

  91. Thanks so much for this post. All those other codes didn’t work at all. I’m never programming this remote again any other way than this 🙂

  92. Thanks so much! This worked great for our new Sony TV whereas the codes on the remote pamphlet did NOT work.

  93. Dude, do you know to set up a Toshiba Tv. I lost my manual. I tried the code search, 300 times but it didn’t work at all. please help me out.

  94. YOU ROCK!!! I don’t know what I would have done with out this… I couldn’t find anything helpful anywhere else online.

  95. Your suggestion worked. It will pay to count to yourself the clicks of the channel button if you want to go fast. If you do that, when you go past your spot when clicking…you can at least fly up to the pt on your next try and then slow down to keep from missing it. Thank you. This might work for other people. My tv was very old, that is probably why none of the codes worked from the site i have posted…it may work for others. good luck and thanks again.

    guys after you keep pushing the channel up button, press it slowley, then hit mute like he/she says, up top, and it will work…if you keep pushing the channel button to fast, after it changes a channel, then stops working, you have to start all over again, push it kinda slwoely
