These remotes apparently use a different code list than newer RCA remotes. The list was found in a PDF manual for an old RCA VCR.


Steps

  1. Remove the battery cover on the back of the remote and look for the model number ("RCU300X" for instance).
  2. Consult list of TV codes for your model via: rcaaccessories.com/index.html (or search online).
  3. Press and hold the TV button on the remote. LED will stay "ON".
  4. Enter the code for your brand of TV into the remote while continuing to hold the TV button down. LED will go out during number entry and turn back on when the last digit is entered.
  5. Release the TV button. LED will flash and go out if number is entered sucessfully, or flash 4 times if it detects an error.
  6. Press Channel up or down to see if this has worked.
