How to program a universal remote to an Emerson TV

Here’s how you can use the Emerson universal remote codes to program your universal TV remote. It is important to remember that the first code you enter may not work, and you’ll have to keep trying a new code until you find the right one.



Turn on your Emerson TV

First, turn on your Emerson TV using your TV remote or the manual power button.



Press the setup button

The next thing you need to do is point your universal TV remote towards your Emerson TV and press and hold the Setup button. Don’t let go of the button until the red light on the remote turns on.

Check if the code worked

If you do everything correctly, you’ll see a blinking light on the remote. But if you don’t, you’ll need to try using another code.

After the code finally works, test your remote by turning your TV on and off, changing the channels, turning the volume up and down, and so on.

Why is my Emerson TV remote not working?

In some cases, even when you enter the correct Emerson TV remote code, the programmed remote may not work. This could be because of low batteries, defects in the remote, or signals being interrupted. If replacing the batteries hasn’t fixed the issue and you’ve ensured that the signals are not interrupted, you’ll need to replace your remote.

Do you need an old remote to program a universal remote?

Usually, you just need the old remote to turn the TV on. However, if you don’t have it, you can always turn the TV on using the manual power button. Then, you can program your universal remote using a remote code.


In a nutshell, programming and using a universal TV remote is a pretty straightforward process if you know about the correct Emerson TV remote codes. Whether you’ve lost your remote or are planning to control all your devices with a single remote, our step-by-step guide can help you set it up easily within a few minutes.
