Programming a Panasonic universal remote is a quick process that should take only a few minutes. You do not need any tools or technical know-how to complete this task. Programming a Panasonic remote is a do-it-yourself project that is completed entirely using the remote control.
Hold down both the "Power" and "Action" buttons for five complete seconds. All the component lights of your Panasonic universal remote control will light up if you have a lighted version of the remote and if you press the buttons correctly.
Press the button corresponding the component to which you are programming the remote. If you are programming the remote to a TV, press the "TV" button, for a VCR, press the "VCR" button, or for a DVD player, press the "DVD" button.
Use the TV Codes website to find the codes for your component. These codes are usually brand-specific. Press each digit of the code into the remote's number pad. Aim the remote at the component and press the "Power" button to turn it on. f the component doesn't turn on, start over using another code on the list until the remote works.
