TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM:

LED does not blink when you press a key.

SOLUTION: Replace the batteries with two (2) new AA


alkaline batteries (see page 7).
PROBLEM:

LED blinks when you press a key, but home


entertainment component does not respond.

SOLUTION: Make sure you are aiming the Millennium 4 at


your home entertainment component and that
you are within 15 feet of the component you are
trying to control.
PROBLEM:

The Millennium 4 does not control home


entertainment components or commands are
not performing properly.

SOLUTION: Try all listed codes for the component brand


being set up. Make sure all components can be
operated with an infrared remote control.
PROBLEM:

TV/VCR combo does not respond properly.

SOLUTION: Use the VCR codes for your brand. Some combo
units may require both a TV code and a VCR
code for full operation (see page 16).
PROBLEM:

No volume on a second TV.

SOLUTION: Follow instructions in Changing Volume Lock


(see page 27).
PROBLEM:

CH+ , CH - , and LAST do not work for your


RCA TV.

SOLUTION: Due to RCA design (1983-1987), only the original


remote control will operate these functions.
PROBLEM:

Changing channels does not work properly.

SOLUTION: If original remote control required pressing


ENTER to change channels, press ENTER on the
Millennium 4 after entering a channel number.
PROBLEM:

Tried Search Method and still could not find a


working code.

SOLUTION: Try the Search Method again after clearing out


the device key as follows: Press and hold SETUP
until the LED (red light) blinks twice, then
release. Next enter 9 - 9 - 2. Then press and
release the device key to be cleared twice.
PROBLEM:

Remote control does not turn on Sony or Sharp


TV/VCR Combo.

SOLUTION: For power on, these products require programming TV codes on the Millennium 4. For Sony,
use TV code 0000 and VCR code 0032. For Sharp,
use TV code 0093 and VCR code 0048.
