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.
Using Code Search
Power on the LG TV and Phillips Blu-ray player if you have not already done so.
Press the "DVD" button on the LG remote if it has one. Alternatively, press the "Mode" button on the LG remote a few times until the LED lights up below the DVD label at the top of the remote.
Press the "Power" and "Mute" buttons simultaneously to put the remote into programming mode.
Press the "CH+" button repeatedly until the Phillips Blu-ray player turns off. Press the "Exit" button to save and store the programming code for the Phillips Blu-ray player.
Press the "Mode" button again until the DVD LED illuminates. Press the "Power" button on the remote to turn the Phillips Blu-ray player on again. Use the LG remote to control the Phillips Blu-ray player normally.
Manual Code Entry
Turn on the Phillips Blu-ray player and the LG television.
Press the "DVD" or "Mode" button until the LED underneath the DVD label lights up at the top of the remote.
Press the "Mute" and "Power" buttons at the same time to enable programming mode on the LG remote.
Enter "013" using the number keys on the remote. The Phillips Blu-ray player turns off.
Press the "Exit" key to save the programming code for the Phillips Blu-ray player.
- 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.
- 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.
