Universal utilities

What are they needed for? The first point is that not all TV manufacturers develop proprietary utilities. The second is how to control the TV through the phone if there are several TV devices from different brands in the house (for example, KIVI and Panasonic)? For each to install a separate program? Not necessary. There are two versatile options available.

TV Side View

How to use the program after installation:

  • Select the country of residence from the list and read the official agreement by ticking the consent box.
  • 4 digits will appear on the TV screen, which must be entered on the smart.
  • Add a device compatible with the program.
  • Enable TV remote start.
  • Install the required channels.

bind, remote, your

After the simple first steps to set up the utility, you can start testing your phone as a Sony TV remote control. Using a mobile device, you can switch between channels, switch to the “My Library” mode, find programs, receive notifications about the start of your favorite talk show, etc.

Apps from manufacturers

The giant companies took care of the development of proprietary utilities for remote control of a Samsung TV, LG or another brand from a phone. It remains to go to the Play Market, App Store and download the program. After installing it, you can use a mobile gadget instead of a remote control.

Smart IR remote

Turns Smart into a universal device for controlling not only TV, but also a projector, set-top box, air conditioner and other equipment.

In the menu that opens, you will:

  • select the desired device (in this case, click on the icon with the TV image);
  • decide on the brand and model of the TV (choose from the list of available options);
  • a remote control will open, with which you can control all the options of the selected TV.

It is worth considering that the interface is in English, but it is so simple that it will not be difficult to figure it out.

The utility is paid and does not work with all brands.

TV Remote

With the help of the program, as well as a phone or tablet on Android OS, you can control television equipment running on this operating system.

  • switch between joystick and touchpad modes;
  • play games on the big screen, controlling the gameplay with a remote control phone;
  • use voice commands to search for information;
  • type text on Android TV.

The only thing is that it is not possible to turn off the TV.

Philips TV Remote

The first steps are to review brief information about the capabilities of the application and provide access to various sections of the gadget. The utility will scan the space and find a Philips TV, sync with it.

After that, users will be able to:

  • switch channels and use all the standard remote control options;
  • enter text to find the information you need;
  • select programs for viewing and program recording;
  • use voice search;
  • watch TV shows from TV on a tablet / mobile device;
  • transfer files from phone to TV and more.

Nuance: The utility works only with TV, starting from the release of 2014. For earlier models, MyRemote is suitable.

This concludes the review of branded progs, it’s time to move on to universal.

Attention! There may be third-party programs with a similar name in the Play Market and App Store. If you need to download a proprietary utility, you should pay attention: under the name of the program there should be a brand name, for example, LG Electronics. Inc, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. etc.

Smart View

Multifunctional program for convenient control of Samsung TV (for example, 43TU7090), playback of content from the phone. After starting the program, users will be prompted to decide on the permissions for the application.

Then the possibilities of the software will open:

How To Use The LG Magic Remote (2021)

  • quick selection and launch of Megogo, YouTube, Netflix and other entertainment applications;
  • browsers for searching information;
  • playback of photos, music and other files from the phone;
  • watching content from TV on the screen of a mobile gadget;
  • TV remote control, for example, on / off it.

You can switch between tabs at the top of the screen, a remote control with a trackpad is at the bottom.


Manual synchronization can be performed when the activation codes are known to you, or when the remote control cannot be configured in automatic mode. The codes for manual tuning are selected in the technical data sheet of the device or in special tables created for your brand of TV. The sequence of actions in this case will be as follows:

  • turn on the TV and point the remote control at its screen;
  • press the POWER button and at the same time dial the previously prepared code;
  • wait until the indicator lights up and pulses twice, while the POWER button is not released;
  • check the operation of the main buttons of the remote control by activating their functions on the TV.

If, after setting up on the TV using a “foreign” remote control device, not all options were activated, then you will need to separately find and activate the codes for them. The algorithm for setting up remote devices of various well-known brands will differ in each specific case.

  • Manual remote control Huayu. turn on the TV and point the remote at it. Press and hold the POWER button and the SET button at the same time. At this time, the indicator will begin to pulsate. Now you need to enter the code that matches your TV. After that, the indicator turns off, then press the SET button.
  • Setting up your Supra. turn on the TV and point the remote at the screen. Press the POWER button and at the same time enter the code that matches your TV. After the light pulsation of the indicator, the POWER button is released. the code has been entered.

The code is entered in the same way into remote devices of other manufacturers. All remotes, even if they look different, have the same technical structure inside.

Sometimes, even on more modern models, you can find the appearance of new buttons, but the essence of the remote control remains unchanged.

In addition, it is worth noting that in the last few years smartphones have begun to be produced, which also have a built-in remote control, with which you can control not only the TV, but also, for example, turn on the air conditioner. This control option is universal, and the synchronization of devices in it occurs via the built-in Bluetooth smartphone or the Wi-Fi module.


To connect and configure a multifunctional Chinese remote control, first of all, you need to charge it. that is, connect the power connector to the desired type of battery. Most often AAA or AA batteries are suitable.

Sometimes such batteries are replaced with batteries of the same size, which is much more profitable, since it implies reusability, because the batteries can be recharged through an electrical outlet.

After recharging the remote control is completed, it can be synchronized with the equipment. The universal version of the remote control without settings will not function, but they can be performed in manual or automatic mode.


The general principle of setting up a universal control panel has approximately the same algorithm of actions, suitable for most devices:

  • turn on the TV to the mains;
  • direct the remote control to the TV screen;
  • find the POWER button on the remote control and keep it pressed for at least 6 seconds;
  • the volume control option appears on the TV screen, at this time the POWER button is pressed again.

After this procedure, the universal remote control is ready for use. You can check the functionality of the remote control after its activation in the following way:

  • turn on the TV and point the remote control at it;
  • on the remote control, dial 4 times the number “9”, while the finger does not remove from this button after pressing, leaving it for 5-6 seconds.

If the manipulation was performed correctly, the TV will turn off. On the sales market, most often there are models of remote controls, the manufacturers of which are Supra, DEXP, Huayu, Gal. The settings algorithm for these models has its own nuances.

  • Supra remote control. point the remote control at the screen of the turned on TV and press the POWER button, holding it for 6 seconds until the option for adjusting the sound level appears on the screen.
  • Gal remote. turn on the TV and point the remote at it, while on the remote you need to press the button with the image of the type of multimedia device that you are currently configuring. When the indicator is on, the button can be released. Next, they press the power button, at this time an automatic code search will start. But as soon as the TV turns off, immediately quickly press the button with the letters OK, which will make it possible to write the code into the memory of the remote control.
  • Huayu remote control. point the remote control at the turned on TV, press the SET button and hold it. At this time, the indicator will light, on the screen you will see the option to adjust the volume. By adjusting this option, you need to set the necessary commands. And to exit this mode, press SET again.
  • DEXP remote control. point the remote control at the turned on TV screen and at this time activate by pressing the button with the brand of your TV receiver. Then press the SET button and hold it until the indicator turns on. Then you need to use the channel search button. When the indicator turns off, immediately press the OK button to save the automatically found code.

Often, for various reasons, it happens that an automatic code search does not bring the desired results. In this case, the settings are made manually.

Difference between original and universal remote

Any remote control device is used to implement the capabilities of a technical device. There are original models. that is, those that come off the assembly line with a multimedia device, as well as universal consoles, which are designed so that they can be programmed to synchronize with many models of equipment produced by different world manufacturers. Sometimes it happens that the original remote control is lost or for some reason out of order.

If the model of the TV or other equipment is already old, then it is simply impossible to find a replacement for the same original remote control.

In such cases, the task of remote control can be taken over by a universal device.

The pulsed emissions of universal consoles are such that they are suitable for controlling many models of both modern technology and devices of the old generation. In addition, the universal device has a peculiarity. it can be adjusted for sensitivity to several devices at once, and then the extra remotes can be removed and only one can be used, which, you see, is very convenient.

Most often, universal remote control devices come to us from factories in China, while the birthplace of the original remote control depends on the manufacturer of the multimedia device to which it is attached, which means that it corresponds to the brand and has a higher degree of quality. Another feature of universal controls is that they are less expensive. If you wish, you can choose them by color, shape, design. Each such remote control contains a software encoding base, due to which it is synchronized with most models of multimedia equipment.

How to find the TV code?

Before proceeding to activate the universal remote control, you will need to know the code for your TV. Some models have a three-digit code, but there are those that work with a four-digit code. You can clarify this information by carefully studying the operating instructions supplied with your TV model. If there are no instructions, special reference tables will help you, which can be found on the Internet by typing in the search engine the phrase “Codes for setting up the remote control”.

For the operation of a remote control device and for linking several devices through it, the program code performs the main function.

It is with the help of the code that the recognition, synchronization and operation of all devices that you plan to control using the remote control take place. A code should be understood as a specific set of numbers that is unique. Search and code entry can be performed both automatically and manually. If you dial a certain order of numbers on the universal remote control, then the automatic search and selection option will be launched. For various TVs, their own unique codes have been developed, but there are also common ones, for example, the following:

  • code 000 is used to turn on the device;
  • channel search by moving forward is carried out through 001;
  • if you want to go back one channel, then use the code 010;
  • you can add the sound level with code 011, and decrease it with code 100.

In fact, there are quite a few codes, and you can see for yourself by studying the tables with them. It should be noted that in original control devices the code system cannot be changed. It has already been entered by the manufacturer and is suitable for the multimedia device to which the remote control is supplied. Universal consoles are arranged differently. they can be customized for any type of equipment, since their built-in code base is much larger and more diverse, which gives this device the opportunity for widespread use.

How to set up a universal TV remote?

Manufacturers of modern multimedia devices produce remote control devices for controlling them from a short distance. Most often, any model of TV or video player is supplied with an original remote control suitable for it.

Remote control is convenient because a person does not need to make unnecessary gestures in order to activate or deactivate certain options of the technique. Sometimes there are several such remotes in one room, and in order not to get confused in their use, you can purchase one universal model that will combine the control of several devices. To activate the remote control and “bind” to the technique, it must first be configured or programmed.

How to program?

A remote control (RC) in a universal design can adapt and replace several original remotes, which are suitable only for one specific device. Of course, this is only possible if you reconfigure the new remote control and enter codes that will be universal for all devices.

In addition, any universal remote has the ability to memorize those devices that have already been connected at least once. This makes it a wide memory base, while the original devices have a mini-memory format. But the same remote device can be installed on another device, you just need to enter the appropriate control codes.

The programming instructions for the universal control device of almost any model informs that you can activate the memorization of the entered codes by pressing the POWER and SET buttons.

After performing this action, the indicator on the remote control will be activated, it will pulsate. At this time, you need to select the button that corresponds to the device with which you synchronize the remote control. You need to finish programming by entering the appropriate code, which we take from the technical passport or tables in the open Internet access.

After entering the code, you will have the opportunity not only to control each device separately, but also to switch from one device to another using the remote control. Software coding methods can sometimes have some peculiarities, which you can clarify by studying the instructions for your remote control device. However, all modern remotes have a clear graphical interface, so device management does not cause great difficulties for a simple user.

How to set up the DEXP universal remote control, see below.

How to set up a universal remote for an LG TV

A universal remote control is a device with which you can remotely control several devices at once, for example, a TV, an audio system, a set-top box, etc. This is very convenient, since one remote control replaces several, saves time and eliminates the blockages of unnecessary equipment.

Universal remotes are produced by many manufacturers, and they all differ not only in price, but also in the set of functions and types of devices that can be connected to them. Therefore, carefully read the datasheet before buying.

Setting up a universal remote: steps and instructions

  • Before you start setting up the universal remote control for your LG TV, turn on the TV (with the original remote control from the device or using the Power button on the case).
  • Point the remote at the TV, press the TV (TV) button. Hold it for a few minutes. The indicator on the front of the device should light up.
  • Press a combination of programming buttons on the remote (they differ depending on the manufacturer, so carefully study the instructions. This can be a combination of Power and Set, Setup and C, etc.
  • The field for entering the code appears on the TV screen. For different models of LG TVs, this can be 025, 164, 161. Enter the code using the remote.
  • Wait for initialization to complete. The process usually takes a few seconds, after which the indicator on the remote control will turn off.

LG’s universal remotes have proven themselves well in the market. They are compatible with any equipment from this manufacturer.

It is important to remember that in many universal remotes, all settings are reset after the batteries are removed from them at the same time. Therefore, they need to be changed strictly one by one, or the adjustment will have to be carried out every time from scratch.

Almost all modern LG TVs running on the webOS operating system can be connected to the Magic Universal Remote Control, which works in the same way as a computer mouse. With its help, it is convenient to select the desired functions directly on the TV screen by moving the cursor over it.

The Magic Remote Control may be included or purchased separately, depending on the TV model. In some cases, you may also need an additional connection of the Wi-Fi / Bluetooth adapter.

Step-by-step instructions for connecting the Magic Remote Control

  • Turn on the TV using the “native” remote control or the button on the case.
  • Approximately 15-20 seconds after turning on the TV, point the Magic Remote Control towards it and press the OK (Wheel) button.
  • The remote control is activated, after which the corresponding inscription will appear on the TV screen.

You can also customize various settings for the Magic Remote, such as the speed at which the cursor moves across the screen and the size of the cursor. Here’s what you need to do for this:

  • Press the Home button (Home icon) on the remote.
  • In the upper right corner, select “Settings” (Icon “Gear”).
  • Click the button with three vertical dots in the right corner of the screen.
  • In the menu that opens, you can change the speed with which the cursor will move across the TV screen, as well as its appearance: size and shape.

If you do not use the cursor, then after a certain time it becomes inactive and its image disappears from the TV screen. To return it, just shake the remote control from side to side.

The Magic Remote Control can also be used like a regular remote control. To do this, press any of the buttons: “up”, “down”, “right” or “left”.

The range of use of the Magic remote control is 10 meters, if you use it from a greater distance, there may be problems with signal transmission.

How to set up a universal remote on a smartphone

A smartphone can become a universal remote control. To do this, he must have the Smart function. To do this, you need to download the application. for example,

Method 3

Hold down two buttons: SET (TV) and POWER. Enter the code at the same time.

Be sure to check: the remote control must regulate the device in accordance with the keys. If the TV mistakenly interprets the device, the remote control does not work correctly and the settings should be reflashed again.

How to set up a universal remote control to a TV and other devices: Samsung, LG, Huayu, IRC, Philips, GAL, principle of operation and purpose, how to find out the device code

Methods on how to set up a universal remote control to a TV are simple to perform and not difficult even for a beginner. Despite the variety of models, there are only 4 ways to program the device. A dozen remotes in the house is an old way to control equipment. It is more convenient to make one universal and teach home to use it.

Instructions on how to connect to the device

Method 1

  • Turn on and point to screen.
  • Hold OK, TV or Set for 5 seconds.
  • If the indicator blinked and went out, the device was able to be tied.
  • Continued blinking: enter the code corresponding to the device on the remote control.
  • Press TV. If, after tuning, the TV does not respond to the remote control signal, the code was entered with an error. Recommended to repeat again.

Method 2

If the remote control still does not see the TV, it is advisable to activate the operation of the equipment in a different way:

  • Hold SET or TV until the lamp on the remote lights up.
  • Click POWER.
  • Enter device code. The indicator light will turn off.
  • Press MULT or OK, if the diode on the remote control does not go out.

How to find out the code

Each device has codes to flash hardware pairing. For example, the BBK code is 0743, 0983, 1313 or 1873. You can find out the password in the instructions for the device. Sometimes such a document is present in the box for a universal device. For example, the rolsen TV remote control, universal for any brand of technology, contains a booklet with company codes in alphabetical order.

Most brands: Gal Lm P001, Dexp, Changer TV remote, Chunghop, Vix, Gal lm P003, Jumbo Universal Remote, Ritmix Rds Remote, Irc, contain tables of codes for equipment and detailed instructions in Russian that will recode the firmware of access to equipment.

Code table for different brands of TV

Setting up without code

Unblock No Connected Devices:

  • Turn on the TV on any channel.
  • Press TV and SET at the same time.
  • The diode next to the POWER lights up.
  • Now you need to quickly press POWER many times. To do before programming the remote and TV.
  • Complete setup. SET or TV. Household appliances are tuned to DPU like TVs.

How to reprogram your TV remote

The original remote control that came with the TV can break, get lost, there are cases of spontaneous settings failure. It can be problematic to find a new identical one, and a completely workable “sloth” could be lying around from the previous TV or even a VCR. Newer models have a special button. auto scan, which allows you to bind the remote control to any TV, but if there is no such button, you will have to reprogram the device. It’s not as difficult as it sounds, and no programming skills are required.

How to reprogram the remote control. algorithm

If the remote control is not new and its serviceability is in doubt, then to check its functionality. look at the infrared diode (light in front of the remote control) through the phone or digital camera camera. it should light up when you press the buttons. The eye does not see the IRDA range, but the camera does. Next, we need a device code (this is usually 4 digits). You can find it out in the instructions for the TV, or by examining the sticker on the back of the device, where the model and serial number are indicated.

If this did not bring success, then on the RCA.com website you can search for the code either by the brand of the TV, or by the brand of the previous remote control, if available. Open the door where the batteries are located and look for an engraving or sticker labeled, for example, RCR321A. We enter this brand in the search field on the RCA website. and we get a code, or even a whole instruction with all the tuning codes.

The direct binding algorithm is as follows.

  • You need to press and hold the TV button on the remote. The LED will light up, if there is one in the design. Do not release the button.
  • Now you need to dial the TV code on the numeric buttons on the remote control. At the start of dialing, the diode will turn off, then turn on again.
  • Release the TV button. A single blinking of the diode indicates that the code is valid, four times is a sign of an input error, you must start all over again.
  • Change channel to make sure linking is successful.

How To Register your LG Magic Remote control

Perhaps not all functions will be available, but the basic ones (switching channels, turning on / off, adjusting the sound, images, entering the menu) should work.

No code

Another universal method is code search. Brief instruction:

  • activate the TV and translate the remote control;
  • hold down the “TV” and “OK” keys;
  • after 2-3 seconds the keys will light up;
  • click on “switch” TV channels and turn off TV;
  • the stake was successfully selected;
  • to save the parameters, click on the “TV” button.

What is a universal remote?

Owners of digital television acquire a universal remote control. To install it, you need a separate receiver. They have the same structure and consist of a plastic case, electrons, soft keys, LEDs and electronic power parts.

The universal spacer has a similar internal structure as the standard one. Not every device is adapted to control. External similarity does not guarantee the versatility of the PU. Read the technical specifications before purchasing a useful accessory.

Smartphones with universal remote function

Most smartphones with a built-in universal remote option. Customize based on personal preference. Control the light in the apartment or the supply of cold air in the air conditioner from the mobile.


Each TV has a specific communication code. With the help of it it is possible to set the parameters of the NC. Select instructions depending on model.

  • start the receiver;
  • on the universal remote, click on the “Start” button, then enter the TV code;
  • now release the key.
  • open the change mode, in parallel press the keys: “Start” and “Set”;
  • waiting for the signal to appear on the gadget;
  • enter the combination;
  • signal goes out.
  • we activate the TV;
  • click on the buttons “C” and “Settings”;
  • after initialization, remove your fingers from the keys;
  • checking the work.

Differences between original and universal remote control

The remote control is useless as a separate device. It connects together with the TV set. Work action:

  • When a key is pressed, the user touches the microcircuit. Because of this, a circuit of electrical impulses is formed.
  • The LED element of the accessory converts the action into infrared radiation. At the same time, the wave indices reach 0.75-1.5 microns. Signal is transmitted to the connected device.
  • The TV has a phototransistor. It displays the IR signal and transmits it as an electrical impulse. The signal goes to the control point. Because of this, the action is reproduced.

The communication method, which is widespread in remote control, is pulse-code modulation. It differs in that each action is given a sequence:

  • digits 000 to deactivate the TV;
  • code 001. switch to the next TV channel in the list;
  • code 002. return the previous TV channel;
  • combination 011 to change the volume indicators;
  • 100. reduce the level of the reproduced sound;
  • 111. deactivate TV.

Thus, when a key is pressed, the electrical circuit converts the signal according to a clear pattern.

  • Original;
  • Counterfeits;
  • Suitable for everyone.

The first and second types are controls designed for a specific type of device. The main difference is that the original creates the factory where the TV is produced. Non-original sell licensed companies.

The universal option is customizable for any technique. It is designed for various TV models. In case of a lost gadget, it is suitable for any device. When buying, the user often pays attention to the external structure and its design. Since the technical characteristics are the same.

How to connect a universal remote to an LG TV: codes, instructions

Technician designers complement the devices with a useful control panel. This makes it easy to use any system. It is now possible to turn off the light, turn on the air conditioner or adjust the set-top box while sitting on the couch. One device is useful to the user.

How to disassemble LG TV remote?

All modern LG TVs are equipped with a remote control. The service life of such a technically sophisticated device as a TV is more than 10 years. And if a high-quality viewing panel easily reaches this milestone and overcomes it, then the control panel often fails much earlier.

The reason for the inoperative remote control can be both serious damage and minor problems that can be easily dealt with on your own at home without resorting to the help of a specialist.

Why disassembly is needed?

If the control panel does not have serious visible damage, but does not respond to commands, the reason for this may be damaged batteries, dirty key contacts, breakage of the connecting loop, detaching the microcircuit. You can try to fix these problems yourself.

If the remote control stops working, you must first try to replace the batteries. To do this, you need to open a special hole on the back panel and replace, observing the polarity.

If the batteries are in good order, but the remote control does not work, you can try to clean the contacts from dirt or check the presence of parts located inside the remote control (are they all in their places).

But before performing these manipulations, the remote control will have to be disassembled.

For more complex injuries, such as a broken microcircuit, a violation of the integrity of the connecting loop, special skills cannot be dispensed with. Therefore, you will need either the help of a specialist or the purchase of a new remote control.

How to disassemble?

Each individual LG TV model is equipped with a special remote control. One and the same remote control will not work on 2 different TV models.

Exceptions are remotes with Smart TV and Magic Remote.

But both conventional and remote controls with a control function for many models are disassembled in almost the same way. In order to open the case, you must perform a certain sequence of actions.

  • Unscrew all visible screws using a Phillips screwdriver. Sometimes the bolts connecting the body halves can be hidden in the battery compartment. Therefore, when parsing, you need to open this compartment and remove the batteries.
  • Then, using a flat screwdriver, unclip the latches by pushing it into the joint located on the side of the remote control.
  • There are models where the 2 halves are not bolted, but closed with special internal latches. In this case, a plastic card will help to disassemble the remote control. It is necessary to try to place it between the side joints on the case of the remote device. By increasing the space between the joints, the latches will open.

Disassembled, the remote control will consist of 2 halves of a plastic case, silicone buttons, microcircuits connected by loops.

Having disassembled the device, you need to make sure that the microcircuits do not have cracks, chips or scratches, and the cables are not torn off on either side. If there is such damage, then you cannot do without purchasing a new remote control.

If all the parts are intact, you need to wipe the silicone buttons and contacts on the microcircuit with an alcohol-containing solution using a cotton pad.

When performing these manipulations, you need to be extremely careful, since all parts are fragile and can be damaged if excessive pressure is applied to them.

After that, the remote device must be assembled by placing the silicone buttons on the sensors and connecting both parts of the case, closing the latches or tightening the bolts.

In some models of remote controls, glue is used to connect the body. In the case of disassembly and subsequent assembly of such specimens, it is necessary to remove the remnants of the old glue with a knife, degrease the surface and apply a thin layer of new glue to the joints, wait a few seconds and press firmly. After gluing, you can use the device no earlier than 2 hours later.

When gluing, do not allow the glue to get on the buttons and internal parts of the device, since the glue, when dried, forms a film that will not allow signal transmission and hinder the operation of the remote control.

The latest TVs are equipped with touch panel controls. The parsing of such remotes is carried out in the same way as devices with buttons. But when parsing, you need to be careful and try not to damage the touch control panel.

If work experience is not enough, it is worth contacting a specialist, since the cost of touch control devices is several times higher than the cost of a conventional remote control.


If you decide to try to cope with the breakdown yourself and disassemble the console case, the following things may be required to carry out all stages of assembly and disassembly:

  • crosshead screwdriver;
  • flat screwdriver with a fine tip;
  • plastic card;
  • knife;
  • quick dry glue.

Having prepared all the necessary tools, as well as a flat surface on which the analysis will be carried out, you can proceed to action.

Operating tips

During the operation of the TV control device, there are different situations. Often the remote is left on the floor, sofa, or coffee table. Therefore, such devices are often damaged due to the negligence of their owners. And if the TV is installed in the kitchen or in the dining area, the risk of damage increases several times.

In order to extend the service life of the remote device, you need to adhere to some recommendations, the observance of which will save it from damage and contamination.

  • Store in a specially designated place: on a shelf of a pedestal or a drawer.
  • When buying a new remote control, try to preserve the protective film that is glued to the front panel of the device as long as possible. It will protect the buttons from being erased and prevent dirt from penetrating into the case.
  • Do not leave the device on the floor. If an adult steps on it, in most cases the case and the microcircuit will be broken.
  • Do not leave on the sofa, as during disassembly, the remote control can get into the moving folding mechanism and get damaged.
  • Do not wash the buttons of the remote control with water or harsh cleaning agents, as water can get inside the case and cause a short circuit. And the cleaner can wipe off the paint on the keys.
  • Keep the switching device away from heat sources, do not leave on the battery. And in case of water ingress, do not dry with a hairdryer.
  • Avoid getting food debris on the surface where the buttons are located. Small particles can get inside the case and cause malfunctions. If this does happen, you cannot try to get them with a needle or knife.
  • Replace batteries in a timely manner. Expired batteries may leak acid and damage the contacts.

Thus, using simple devices, you can quickly disassemble the remote control from any LG TV model. And using the tips for use, you can avoid breakdown and repair of the TV control device.

How to repair the remote control from the LG 42LB561V TV, see below.

The difference between the original remote control and the universal

If the subscriber uses the Tricolor TV tuner or the House of RU, then we can say with complete confidence that they are not equipped with a universal remote control. Therefore, you will have to constantly use two devices. from a TV and a set-top box. The principle of operation of any remote control:

  • When a button is pressed on the remote control, a specific microcircuit is activated. Electric impulse is transmitted to TV.
  • The signal is transmitted thanks to the LED. He receives the command, and then sends it to the TV with which he is connected.
  • TVs are equipped with a phototransistor. This hardware model provides reception of an infrared signal from the remote control. After that, the signal is converted into an electrical impulse, which is transferred to the control unit.

To control the TV from the remote control, the PCM communication scheme is used. This method is also called a walking modulator. The peculiarity of the remote control is that a three-digit code is assigned to each command, for example:

  • turning off the TV. 000;
  • channel switching. 001;
  • return to the previous TV channel. 010;
  • increasing and decreasing the volume. 011, 100;
  • turning on the TV. 111.

This means that when a button on the remote control is pressed, the electronic circuitry inside activates the infrared diode. He, in turn, works in accordance with a certain scheme. The duration of the signal is interrupted by standard steps. this is less than one second. For example, to change the channel, you need to use the “001” command. It will be sent three times, but with a certain delay.

Devices for remote TV switching are presented in a wide range. Let’s list the main types:

  • original;
  • unoriginal;
  • universal.

Branded and non-original are ordinary remote controls that are designed to control exclusively the TV. The difference between them is insignificant. It boils down to the fact that the original is sold together with TV, and the non-original is sold as a separate component.

The universal remote control can be programmed for a specific model, but this must be done in accordance with special instructions. Mostly they are used if the original one is broken or lost.

Universal models have external differences. different shapes, designs, colors and sizes. You can choose the best option for yourself in accordance with personal preferences. There is a special device inside, which consists of several units. They ensure correct signal transmission on different TVs. To correctly configure the remote control, you need to know the codes in advance.


To set up in auto mode, you need to hold down a combination of four nines on the remote control panel for a couple of seconds, without removing your finger from the 9 key. When everything is done correctly, the TV is immediately deactivated. Then the auto selection of TV channels will start. The whole process can take about 15 minutes. This method is used if the TV owner does not have a code for a universal remote control.

How to set up and connect the universal remote to the TV? Let’s go through the settings. For Supra: you need to turn on the TV, then point the remote control and hold the Power button for about six seconds. The diode should just light up. When the TV began to respond to an increase or decrease in sound, then the tuning in auto mode is completed.

Set is clamped on the Huayu remote control, followed by Power instantly. This process must be done, adhering to the rule. the keys are not activated immediately, but with a small time interval. Then the buttons are released and Power is clamped. You need to make sure that there is a volume scale on the TV screen. To exit the program, you need to click on Set a couple of times.

Remember that each TV has its own specific pairing code, which is needed for the most accurate setting of the remote control.

The third setting method, which is often used for universal remote controls. So, turn on the TV, then hold down the TV button and hold it until the LED starts to light up. Please note that some models may have flicker. After we hold down Mute to activate the search. At the end of the process, you need to press any button on the remote control to check if there is a reaction to the commands.

Instructions for setting up universal remotes

The instruction says that the universal TV remote control will start working only after the power source is connected. Therefore, first insert the batteries into the appropriate slot. Some devices do not come with batteries, so you need to purchase them separately.

AAA batteries are cheaper, but it is better to buy rechargeable batteries. In the future, they can be charged, and not sent for recycling. As a result, you can save money. Along with the batteries, buy a special slot through which you can charge them, having previously connected it to a regular outlet.

Setting up a universal TV remote starts with synchronization. Open TV settings to select the appropriate mode. The main options are DVD, audio, TV, etc. To complete the connection process, hold down the TV button for three seconds. Enter your equipment code in the appropriate box. To find out it, you need to study the accompanying documentation in detail. We will consider this moment in more detail further.

Universal TV remote: how to set up, connect and identify codes

To switch channels remotely, adjust the volume, activate additional functions and perform other tasks, TV manufacturers create various devices. Now let’s take a close look at what a universal remote control is, how to set up and connect it to a TV. We will carefully analyze how devices of this type differ from the original remote controls.


Now we will look at the second method, how to set up a universal remote control for a TV. You need to use a special code for your TV, entering it, you will need to follow the established procedure. So, for Supra. you need to direct the remote control to the TV and immediately hold down Power, a window will pop up on the screen, into which you have to enter the code for your device. If the code is correct, the LED will blink a couple of times, you can release Power.

To activate the universal Huayu TV remote control, Set and Power are clamped at once. After that, you need to wait for the LED to start blinking. A four-digit code is entered. When the diode has gone out, you must immediately press Set. For Beeline, you have to activate the “TV” button and at the same moment hold down Setup and C. At the end of the installation, the device blinks a couple of times. This is a signal that you can release the keys. Turn up the volume to check if your device is working properly. In general, the process is quite simple, the main thing is to adhere to the sequence of actions. Remember that if the code has not been entered within 1 minute, the whole process will have to be repeated.
