Instructions are WRONG!
on September 11, 2012
I almost sent this back since it wasn't working using the instructions on the packaging which indicated:
1 - press and hold the mute button for 5 secs, then release
2 - when the tv goes mute, then press the mute button quickly
This is what I did to make it work:
1 - turn tv on (make sure volume is up so you can hear it)
2 - press and hold the mute button while pointing at the tv, DO NOT RELEASE
3 - it will take usually between 5-60secs for the remote to find the right code
4 - as soon as the tv goes MUTE, release and immediately press the MUTE button again
For step 4, you have to be really quick but if you aren't fast enough, just do it again.
I don't know why the instructions on the packaging were wrong but I hope this helps someone else.
MINUS 1 star for wrong directions.
