How to program a Terk universal remote

Before you start the programming, make sure to put in the batteries in the Terk remote. Also, it’d be helpful to have codes by your side.

Step

1

Power on the device

First of all, you need to power on the device that you want to connect the Terk remote to. For instance, if you want to use your remote with a TV, then turn your TV on.

Step

2

Press the device button on Terk remote

Now, on your remote, you have to press and hold the button for your device. For example, if you are programming the remote for your TV, then press and hold the TV button. When the power button lights up, keep holding the button.

Step

3

Enter the code

Next, while you’re holding down the Power button, enter the code for your device. When you press the first number, the power button light will turn off.

Step

4

See if the power button is on or off

Now, keep holding down the device button as you’re entering the code. When you’re done with the code, look at the power button – if it lights up, you have entered the right code. If it blinks four times and turns off, then the code is wrong, or you have missed a step. In this case, you will have to repeat the process again.

Step

1

Turn on the device

First, manually turn on the device that you want to use the remote with.

Step

2

Press and hold the device button

Next, press the device key corresponding to the device you want to use the remote with. For example, for TV, press and hold the ‘TV’ button. Do this until the power button lights up.

Step

3

Press and hold the power button

When the power button lights up, you have to press and hold the power button with your other hand. So now, you’re pressing and holding the power button as well as the device button. Do this until the power button’s light turns off and then turns on and stays on.

Press ‘Play’ button

Next, aim the Terk remote at your TV or the selected device and then press the ‘Play’ button, and wait for five seconds for the codes to be tested. If your TV (or your selected device) turns off, you can move forward with the next step.

However, if your device is still on, you can press ‘Play’ again and send more codes to test. Keep pressing ‘Play’ every five seconds until the device turns off.
