How to Program an LG Remote to a Philips Blu-ray

by Jeff Grundy

Modern LG TVs have inputs for just about any type of player component or source you can imagine. Additionally, most LG TVs include a universal remote that you can use not only to control the television, but the external components as well. Therefore, if you connected a Phillips Blu-ray player to your LG TV, you can use the television remote to operate the device -- and other sources as well -- instead of letting multiple remotes clutter your coffee table or viewing area.

Power on the LG TV and Phillips Blu-ray player if you have not already done so.

Press the "Power" and "Mute" buttons simultaneously to put the remote into programming mode.

Manual Code Entry

1

Turn on the Phillips Blu-ray player and the LG television.

2

Press the "DVD" or "Mode" button until the LED underneath the DVD label lights up at the top of the remote.

3

Press the "Mute" and "Power" buttons at the same time to enable programming mode on the LG remote.

4

Enter "013" using the number keys on the remote. The Phillips Blu-ray player turns off.

5

Tip

  • check For LG remotes, "013" is the primary code for Phillips Blu-ray and DVD players. If "013" does not work with your particular LG remote, though, you can also try the following codes: 031, 033, 034, 054, 067, 071 and 101.

Warning

  • close The LG Magic Remote controls the TV and its SMART functions only, and you cannot use it to control a Phillips Blu-ray player. If your LG television shipped with a Magic Remote, it should have a regular TV remote as well. Use the regular TV remote to control the Phillips Blu-ray player or other components.
