How Do You Program a Pioneer Remote Control?

The steps to programming a remote from Pioneer vary between models. The basic operation includes holding down the remote’s main setup button before entering the specific manufacturer code of the TV or device in question.

Turn on the TV. The first programming scenario begins by entering Set Mode by pressing down both the CATV and the TV button for three seconds until the remote’s LED light flashes repeatedly. Repeat this step if the light stops flashing. Once the light begins to flash, press down on only the CATV button until the light stays on. Press “0, 0, 2, 5” in that order until the LED light blinks twice and turns off. Enter Set Mode again and press CATV. Then, enter the manufacturer codes until the TV turns off. For unknown codes, turn the TV on and enter Set Mode. Press TV before pressing one of the remote’s up arrow buttons slowly and repeatedly until the TV turns off.

For the following programming instructions, Device button refers to the TV, VCR and AUD buttons, while device refers to TVs, VCRs, DVD players and audio equipment. DVD players are programmed to the VCR button, while audio equipment is programmed to the AUD button.

For universal models that are designed to work with complete home theater systems, begin by turning on the device. Press and hold the Setup button until the LED light comes on, then off. Release the Setup button and proceed when the LED light blinks once. Press the Device button before entering the manufacturer codes until the LED light blinks twice. Press the Device button to turn the device off to ensure the operation worked correctly. For unknown codes, repeat the operation, but instead of entering the manufacturer codes, press Select slowly and repeatedly until the device turns off. Then, press the Device button to save the code.
