The Correct Learning Procedure

From JP1 Remotes
Jump to: navigation, search

People often experience problems learning signals from their OEM remotes because they are not familiar with the correct procedure for learning.

Non-LCD remotes (ie, 15-1994, URC-8811, etc)

  1. [optional] Press a device button (see note)
  2. Press and hold SETUP, 2 flashes
  3. Type 975, 2 flashes
  4. [optional] Press a device button (see note)
  5. Press the button to be programmed
    At this point the red LED will flash rapidly, this is your cue to start pressing the teaching remote button. It's a good idea to wait 1/2 a second or so before starting to press the teaching remote button, just to make sure that the learning process captures the beginning of the signal.
    As soon as you start pressing the teaching remote button, the red LED will stop flashing, but you should KEEP PRESSING the teaching remote button until the red LED either flashes twice (to indicate the learn was successful) or once (to indicate it wasn't).
  6. If you want to learn more buttons, go back to step 4 and repeat.
  7. When you're finished, press and hold SETUP (2 flashes) to lock in the learns.

Note: Pressing a device button in step 1 sets the default device mode to be used for all the learned buttons, thus eliminating the need for pressing a device button in step 4. You should do this if you want to learn all the buttons under the same device mode.

If you omit step 1 and step 4, the buttons will be learned under the last device mode used, so if you can't remember what that is, press a device button.

If you want to learn the buttons under several different device modes, omit step 1 and press the relevant device buttons in step 4. Once a device button has been selected in step 4, it will remain in effect until a different device mode is selected in step 4, so you can omit this step until you need the buttons to be learned under a different mode.

LCD remotes (RS 15-2116/2117, URC-8910/9910/HT Pro, etc.)

Ensure good batteries in both remotes. Place the remotes on a flat surface facing properly at a distance of 1-3 inches.

On the UEIC Learning remote:

  1. [optional] Press a device button (see note)
  2. Press and hold SETUP, "CODE SET" displays on LCD
  3. Press "UP" or "DOWN" ARROW repeatedly until the LCD displays "IR LEARN"
  4. [optional] Press a device button (see note)
  5. Press and release the button to be programmed
    At this point the LCD will display "LEARNING", this is your cue to start pressing the teaching (OEM) remote button (try to do within about 2-3 seconds of step 5) - but NOT BEFORE. As soon as you start pressing the teaching remote button, the LCD display will go blank, but you should KEEP PRESSING the teaching remote button until the LCD display displays either "SUCCESS" (to indicate the learn was successful) or "FAILED" (to indicate it wasn't).
  6. If you want to learn more buttons, go back to step 4 and repeat.
  7. When you're finished, press exit to lock in the learns.
