Here are the steps to program my onn remote model number 39900:
First, you need to locate the remote code list. Find the device category you desire to program (for example TV, DVD, SAT, AUX) and then find the brand of that device. After finding the brand, check all the codes under that brand.
You need to manually turn on the device you wish to control (TV, DVD, SAT, AUX). Afterwards, press and hold the SETUP button for 2 seconds until the red indicator light stays on and then release the SETUP button. Press and release the desired device button on the remote (TV, DVD, SAT, AUX). The red indicator will blink once and then remain on.
Enter the first 4-digit code previously found in the code list using the number buttons on the remote. If the code entered is valid, the red indicator light will turn off. However, if the code entered is not valid, the red indicator light will flash and remain on allowing you to re-enter the code. If no buttons are pressed for 35 seconds, the remote will exit the SETUP mode and you need to start over.
To check if the remote is working, point the remote at the device and then press the POWER button. If the device turns off, no further programming is necessary for that device. But if the device does not turn off, return to step 3 and use the next code found in the code list. Continue this process until a code for your device is found.
Programming Notes: If your device does not respond to the remote after using all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote. Additionally, sometimes the first code that “works” with your device may operate only a limited functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that work more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
Also, you can use any device button to control other devices in your home entertainment system. For instance, you can use the AUX device button to control an audio receiver or a DVD, VCR, satellite, etc. Lastly, for combination devices, you may have to enter a code for each device. For example, for a VCR/DVD device, you may have to enter a code for the DVD under the DVD button and enter a code for the VCR using a different device button on the remote.
