If the code is correct, the light on the remote will blink and turn off, indicating that it has been successfully connected to the TV. Otherwise, it will stay on, and you’ll have to repeat the process but enter a different code this time.

How can I program my universal remote without using a code?

It is possible to connect your remote without using TCL TV remote codes. For this, you need to point your universal remote towards your TV, press the device button on the remote, and then press and hold the power and device buttons. After the power light of the device turns off and then back on, let go of the buttons. If the remote is working, the correct code has been found. If not, repeat the process. However, do note that the auto-programming feature does not always work, and you’ll have to manually add the code in most cases.

Conclusion

As you can see for yourself, it is pretty easy to connect a universal remote to a TCL TV. However, the process is only simple when you have the correct TCL universal remote codes. Also, if you enter a code and it does not work, don’t think that there’s something wrong with your remote. Instead, start the process again and enter the next code this time. After a few attempts, you’ll eventually enter the right code.

If you’re unable to connect any universal remote to your TV, you may need to get in touch with TCL customer support team as there may be something wrong with your unit.
