Thursday Thirteen

13 things about Titanium’s universal remote

1. Tonight, the batteries mysteriously fell out of the tv remote.

2. When youngest daughter put them back in, they got put in upside down. Oops!

3. When this was discovered, enough time had passed to make the codes no longer worked to operate the tv, vcr and dvd player.

4. I tried to figure it out with a friend, but I was not able to get it programmed.

5. Then I found this site with directions.

6. Here are the directions (for safekeeping).

7. Instructions for how to use the CODE SEARCH button to set up the television:

8. (A) Manually turn the power to your television set ON.

9. (B) Hold down the Code Search button on the remote for 2-3 seconds until the light on the remote stays on.

10. (C) Push the TV button on the remote.

11. (D) Point the remote at your television and slowly press POWER until the television turns OFF.

12. (E) Press the ENT button on the remote. (It is under the number 7 button).

13. That’s it! Worked like a charm. All three devices are working with no trouble.

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

  1. I have done that. I saved the directions to my computer too…just in case.

    My list is up

  2. LOL! That’s hilarious!

    Have a wonderful thursday! Don’t drop the remote!

  3. My hubby writes the code on a small piece of paper and places it with the batteries. That way if it happens again you always have the code handy!

    My T13 is up! I hope you have a terrific Thursday!

  4. Thank God for the internet, eh?!! πŸ™‚

    We don’t have a universal… but one of these days I might have to get one. These days it is all manual, but all the getting up and down is good for you right? πŸ˜›

    My 13 are up!

  5. Ok, we’re still using 2 remotes in the bedroom ’cause we can’t find a compatible code for both the TV and the cable box.

    But thanks! LOL

    What a hilarious idea for a blog!!

  6. Glad that you got it all figured out. And thanks for stopping by.

    My black eye was initially very painful, but lots of meds & ice later and it just feels puffy.

  7. That’s why I love my TiVo. That remote controls all that I need, and it even “bonks” at me. πŸ™‚

  8. now why do I have the urge to go buy me one of those? LOL

  9. this must be expensive. Usually I just buy the ghetto universal remotes, and if it loses memory or something (like i lose the instructions) then I just buy another one. πŸ˜›

    good thing you got it working!

  10. What a pain that whole procedure must have been. I never really believed that would happen dispite the fact there is a label on the remote about it!

    Thanks for visiting my TT

  11. I can’t believe you found the instructions online…I guess they do really put everything on here!:) I hope it doesn’t happen again.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Good tip.

    Thanks for visiting my TT.

  13. I need to by a universal remote. I have way too many remotes to keep track of.

    Thanks for stopping by my TT. Have a wonderful weekend. Be Well..

  14. See? That is why we have these blogs…so we can learn things. Good idea to have it on the computer.:-)

    Read some other stuff while I was here…this is an interesting place πŸ™‚

    I live near OKC, too.

    Have a great weekend.
