Notes on Using the Remote Commander
Basically, use this Commander in the same way as the Commanders supplied with your components. â€¢ Using this Commander will not increase the functions of your components. The functions of the Commander are limited to the functions of the components themselves. For example, if your TV does not have a MUTING function, the MUTING button on this Commander will not function with your TV. â€¢ Some functions of the component may not work with this Commander. â€¢ If your cable box can control volume, be sure to set its volume switch to a medium position. If the volume on the cable box is turned down completely, you will not be able to adjust your TVâ€™s volume with the Commander.
Notes on Batteries
You can write down the code number on the label inside the battery compartment lid.

Setting Up the Remote Commander
About Presetting the Commander
The Commander is preset at the factory to operate Sony brand components. If youâ€™re using the Commander with a Sony component, you wonâ€™t need to preset the Commander before you start using it. To set up the Commander to use with other (non-Sony) manufacturersâ€™ components, or to use with a component that is not preset at the factory, youâ€™ll need to follow the instructions in this manual to preset the Commander with the correct code number for your components. (See the supplied â€śComponent Code Numbersâ€ť also.)
â€¢ Do not mix old batteries with new ones or mix different types of batteries together. â€¢ If the electrolyte inside the battery should leak, wipe the contaminated area of the battery compartment with a cloth and replace the old batteries with new ones. To prevent the electrolyte from leaking, remove the batteries when you plan not to use the Commander for a long period of time.
Searching for the Correct Code
If youâ€™ve tried all the code numbers listed for your component and you still cannot get the Commander to work (or if your component is not listed in the â€śComponent Code Numbersâ€ť tables), try these steps. 1 Power on the component you want to set up. Insert a tape or disc if necessary. 2 Press and release the S (set) button. 3 Press the button of the component on the Commander that you want to set up. 4 Press and release the CH+ button. Then press and release the POWER button. 5 Repeat step 4 until the correct code number is found. Each time you press the CH+ button and then the POWER button, a new code number will be transmitted. Keep trying until your component operates by receiving the transmitted signal from the Commander (e.g., the power turns off, the CH+ function works, playback starts, etc.) Be patient as you do this; it may take about 70 tries until the correct code number is located. 6 When the correct code is found, press the ENT button to store the code number in the Commanderâ€™s memory.

Design and specifications are subject to change without notice.
Setting the Code
Follow the steps 1 and 2 below for each component you plan to use with the Commander.
If you have problems setting up or using the Commander: â€¢ When setting up the Commander, carefully go through the procedures described in â€śSetting the Code.â€ť If the code thatâ€™s listed first for your component doesnâ€™t work, try all the codes for your component - in the order in which theyâ€™re listed. If all the codes fail to work (or if your component is not listed in this manual), try using the procedures in â€śSearching for the Correct Code.â€ť â€¢ Check that youâ€™re aiming the Commander directly at the component, and that there are no obstructions between the Commander and the component. â€¢ Make sure the batteries youâ€™re using are not worn out, and that theyâ€™re inserted correctly. â€¢ Check that the button of the TV, VCR, CBL/SAT, or DVD is pressed to choose your desired component. â€¢ Check that the component has infrared remote capability. For example, if your component didnâ€™t come with a remote commander, it probably isnâ€™t capable of being controlled by a remote commander. â€¢ Should any problem persist, reset the Commander to the factory setting by pressing the POWER, TV/VIDEO and VOLâ€“ buttons simultaneously.
Step 1: Entering the Code Number
Component that can be preset TV VCR Button TV VCR Factory setting Sony TV Sony VHS VCR â€” Sony DVD player
1 See the supplied â€śComponent Code numbersâ€ť, and find the threedigit code number for the desired component. If more than one code number is listed, use the number thatâ€™s listed first to complete the steps below. For example, if youâ€™re setting up a Philipsâ€™ VCR, you would use the code number 035. If your component isnâ€™t listed, see â€śSearching for the Correct Code.â€ť 2 Press and release the S (set) button.

Press PIP GUIDE m or M z x N X To Turn on/off the â€świndowâ€ť picture. Turn off the â€świndowâ€ť picture. Change the TV channel in the â€świndowâ€ť picture. Change the input mode of the â€świndowâ€ť picture. Move the location of the â€świndowâ€ť picture. Swap the â€śmainâ€ť picture and the â€świndowâ€ť picture. Freeze the â€świndowâ€ť picture.
â€¢ The Commander can be set up to operate only one component per button â€“ unless their code numbers happen to be the same. For example, you cannot set up the Commander to operate a Sony TV and a Panasonic TV simultaneously (because they use different code numbers). â€¢ You may not be able to operate even a Sony brand component with the factory presetting. In such a case, follow the procedure in â€śSetting the Code.â€ť
3 Press the button of the component that you want to set up.

7 Check that the Commander is operating the other functions of your component by pressing the corresponding buttons on the Commander. If they seem to be working properly, youâ€™re done setting up the Commander. If the component does not operate properly, repeat steps 1 to 6 and search for another code. If you still cannot get the Commander to work properly, see â€śTroubleshooting.â€ť
