OWNER’S MANUAL
Pocket Remote Control
Please read before using this equipment.
15-1915b.fm Page 2 Monday, July 19, 1999 12:06 PM
INTRODUCTION
Your RadioShack Pocket Remote Control can replace up to three standard infrared remote controls.
Unlike some universal remote controls, the Pocket Remote is preprogrammed and does not have
to learn its commands from the original remote
controls. All you have to do is tell the Pocket Remote which remote controls you want it to replace
(by entering 4-digit codes), and the Pocket Remote does the rest. It’s as simple as A-B-C.
This manual includes a list of 4-digit manufacturers’ codes for TVs, VCRs, and cable converters.
After you’ve entered the 4-digit manufacturers’
codes for your original remotes, the Pocket Remote is automatically ready to operate most of the
same functions as the original remotes.
Your Pocket Remote’s features include:
Replaces Other Remotes — lets you replace up
to three remote controls with one easy-to-use remote control.
Powerful Infrared Beam — in many cases, lets
you operate your remote-controlled devices from
a greater distance than with the original remote
controls.
Convenient Keypad Design — places each
control key in the best position for easy operation.
Handy Reference Label — provides a convenient place for you to write down the manufacturers’ codes for your devices.
Toll Free Support — you can get expert help for
your Pocket Remote by calling 1-800-950-7557.

HOW THE REMOTE WORKS
After you set up the Pocket Remote, its command
keys work like the keys on your original remote
controls, though the labeling might differ slightly.
For example, a key on your original remote control labeled PWR ON/OFF is equivalent to the
Pocket Remote’s PWR key.
Notes:
• Use P to set up the Pocket Remote. (See
“Setting Up Your Device Codes” on Page 7.)
• TV, VCR, and CBL are device keys. You use
them when you set up the Pocket Remote to
replace your original remote controls. You
also use the device keys during normal operation to tell the Pocket Remote which device
you want to control.
• Whenever you use the Pocket Remote’s
RECORD key, you must press it twice. This
safety feature helps prevent you from accidentally erasing video tapes.

SETTING UP THE REMOTE
INSTALLING BATTERIES
Cautions:
• Be sure to have fresh batteries ready to
install before you remove the old batteries.
The Pocket Remote’s memory only lasts
about a minute without the batteries. If the
memory is lost, simply re-enter the 4-digit
manufacturers’ codes for your remote-controlled devices.
• Do not mix old and new batteries, different
types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or
rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of
different capacities.
1. Press the battery compartment cover’s tab and lift off
the cover.
2. Install two AAA alkaline batteries (RadioShack Cat. No.
23-555) as indicated by the
polarity symbols (+ and –) in
the battery compartment.
3. Replace the cover.
If the Pocket Remote’s range decreases or the
Pocket Remote operates erratically, replace its
batteries.
Note: Do not place objects on top of the remote
control after you install the batteries. This can
press down keys and reduce battery life.

SETTING UP YOUR DEVICE
CODES
1. Refer to “Manufacturers’ Codes” on Page 11
and write down the codes for your original
remote controls on the provided label.
2. Press the device key for the type of remote
you are replacing (TV, VCR, or CBL). The red
light blinks.
3. Hold down P until the red light blinks twice,
then enter your 4-digit code.
Press

For example, to replace a Panasonic TV’s
remote control (manufacturer code 1433),
press TV, hold P for two blinks, release, then
enter the 4-digit code.
VOLs CHANt CHANs CHAN s
The red light blinks twice.
4. Point the Pocket Remote at your device and
press PWR. The device should turn on (or off,
if it was on).
Repeat Steps 2–4 for additional devices.
Notes:
• The red light at the top of the Pocket Remote
blinks twice when you enter a code that it
recognizes. (This does not mean that it is the
right code for your device.)

15-1915b.fm Page 8 Monday, July 19, 1999 12:06 PM
• If the remote does not operate your device,
try other codes listed in “Manufacturers’
Codes” on Page 11 for your brand of TV,
VCR, or cable box. If your device still does
not respond, follow the steps outlined in “If
You Have Problems” on Page 31.
• The punch-through feature is automatically
turned on for the TV’s volume and mute controls. This means that when you select CBL
or VCR and press one of the volume buttons
or M, the remote sends the codes to the television, not the cable converter. If you want to
use your cable converter’s VOLUME and
MUTE controls, disable the punch-through
feature for these buttons. See “Punch
Through” on Page 9.

OPERATION
1. Press the device key for the device you want
to control.
2. Point the Pocket Remote at the device and
press PWR to turn it on.
3. Point the Pocket Remote at the device and
press the desired command keys.
The command keys on the Pocket Remote
work the same as the keys on the device’s
original remote control; however, the labeling
might differ slightly.
4. Repeat Steps 1–3 for other devices.
5. To turn off the last device you selected, press
PWR. To turn off other devices, press the
device key for the device you want to turn off,
then press PWR.
PUNCH-THROUGH
The punch-through feature lets you control two
different devices without pressing the device keys
for each one first. Here’s how it works.
No device uses all of the Pocket Remote’s keys.
For example, a TV is often the only device that
uses the VOL keys, and a VCR is usually the only
device that uses keys such as REWIND, FAST F,
and so on.
When you press TV then press VCR, any keys not
used by the VCR can still control the TV.

15-1915b.fm Page 10 Monday, July 19, 1999 12:06 PM
If your cable box or VCR has a volume control,
you can turn off the punch-through feature so you
can use the cable box’s or VCR’s volume control
to control the sound. Hold down P until the red
light blinks twice, then enter 4 4 2 .
P CHANt CHANt VOLt
If you want to control the volume through your cable box, press CBL before using the volume control. If you want to control the volume through your
VCR, press VCR before using the volume control.
To turn the punch-through feature back on, hold
down P until the red light blinks twice, enter 4 4 2,
then press TV.
The punch-through feature does not work if the
last two devices you select have the same (or
similar) features. For example, most TVs and
VCRs have CHANNEL keys on their remote controls. In this case, you would have to press the desired device key before you use the Pocket
Remote’s CHAN t or s keys.

IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS
SCANNING THE CODES
If the Pocket Remote does not control your remote-controlled devices when you first set it up,
you probably haven’t entered the correct 4-digit
codes for your devices.
You can try all the codes for the brand of your device, or you can follow these steps to search the
Pocket Remote’s entire library.
1. Manually turn on the device you are trying to
set up.
2. Aim the Pocket Remote at the device.
3. Press the device key, then hold down P until
the red light blinks twice. Then press the
CHANt key three times. The red light blinks
twice again.
4. Repeatedly press PWR then the device key
for the type of device (TV, VCR, or CBL) until
the device responds.
Each time you press the device key, the
Pocket Remote advances to the next manufacturer’s code in the list.
5. When the device responds, press P to lock in
the manufacturer’s code. If necessary,
repeat these steps for each device key.
CHECKING THE CURRENT
CODES
To determine which 4-digit code the Pocket Remote is set to for a particular device:
1. Press the appropriate device key, then hold
down P until the red light blinks twice.
2. Press the key equivalents to enter 4 4 3. The
red light blinks twice again.

code.

TROUBLESHOOTING
If the Pocket Remote stops working after you successfully test the control of each device, or if you
are unable to get the Pocket Remote to work at
all:
• Be sure you press the device key for the
device you want to control.
• Check and replace the batteries, if necessary.
• Confirm that your remote-controlled devices
are working properly using their manual controls or the original remotes.
• If some buttons do not work for your device,
you might be able to scan to a better device
code.
If you are still unable to determine the problem,
call our nationwide Universal Remote Control
Hotline at 1-800-950-7557.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack Pocket Remote Control is an
example of superior design and craftsmanship.
The following suggestions will help you care for
your remote control so you can enjoy it for years.
• Keep the remote control dry. If it gets wet,
wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic
circuits.
• Use and store the remote control only in normal temperature environments. Temperature
extremes can shorten the life of electronic
devices, damage batteries, and distort or
melt plastic parts.
• Keep the remote control away from dust and
dirt, which can cause premature wear of
parts.
• Handle the remote control gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards
and cases and can cause the remote control
to work improperly.
• Use only fresh batteries of the required size
and type. Batteries can leak chemicals that
damage your remote control’s electronic
parts.
• Wipe the remote control with a damp cloth
occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not
use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or
strong detergents to clean the remote control.
Modifying or tampering with the remote control’s
internal components can cause a malfunction and
might invalidate your remote control’s warranty. If
your remote control is not performing as it should,
take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance.

the expiration of the warranty period.
