I have lost the code book to my Living Solutions oversized tv remote. Is there any website I can pull the codes from? I’ve tried looking but can’t seem to find anything, and I would hate to have to buy another one.

I don’t know if your question has been answered but on the same page your question appears there is the word LINK in red letters,click on that and it will bring you to another page.Here you can click on manuals and it will show all the codes.

i love my remote control. I bought it at walgreens as a christmas present to myself because i was sick of my younger cousins coming to my place and misplacing EVERY SINGLE remote control that I own. So i trialed it and I loved it! I went out a bought another one and have since hidden all the smaller remotes so relatives can’t come over and lose them.

Bot of m;y bookds have since been lost too but I haven’t had much trouble finding the codes on the internet.

I even wonder if codes are universal? So maybe google a random ‘universal remote control’ and try the codes you find.

I printed out the last code list that I found on the internet so I’m in good standings when the batteries come out of the remote or something.

if you are asking about the ” innovage” large tv remote… you do not need a code booklet.
maunally turn your tv on
point the remote at the tv
push ” code search”
a red button will blink
push the ” TV” button
then push the upper right botton with a circle and line on it…
the red burron will blink during each push…
at some point the tv will turn off…
push the “enter” button
the tv will then work with the remote.
it it takes too long to catch so to speak…
do not turn the TV off…
during the process… go ahead and push search code again..then TV
then on/off botton sometimes this speeds up the process.
i’ve found every once in a while the large remote stops responding to the on/off button…
just repeat the steps.

Hi:
I programmed my Living Solutions large remote, but the Go Back button will not work. My Tv is RCA brand, and I have tried all the codes. It does control the tv fine, just no Go Back. Please help, this is a feature I use very often.
Thanks!

Hi..I purchased a “Living Solutions” giant remote control and like many have lost the code booklet. If anyone can help out or knows what to do…HELP! Thank you

Martie, it should be the channel and volume buttons.

—————–

Tracy,

1. Turn off your device
2. Hold the button of what you want to program (TV,VCR,DVD) until the red LED light lights up
3. Press the power button
4. Keep pressing Channel up/down until the device turns on
5. Press “OK”
6. Press power and volume/channel buttons to check it

If you go too far and hit channel up/down again after it turns on, you missed the right code, so hit the opposite direction of what you were doing until it turns on again, then, hit “OK” to program the right code.

I recently purchased the Living Solutions Colossal Universal Remote to control my uncles Magnavox TV. I tried each of the codes listed for Magnavox TV’s, but in all the cases where the TV responds, the Channel UP-DOWN button does not cause the TV channels to change. Power, Mute, Volume, and the number buttons all work. But Channel UP-DOWN does not. Has anyone else run into this issue with Magnavox or other brand TVs? Is there a solution? I intend on taking this up with the vendors customer service, but thought I would ask here too. I sure would like to get this working for him.

I purchased a living solutions giant remote from Walgreens at Christmas. I am just getting around to playing with it. I finally got it programed to turn on my TV but when I go to change the channel, it doesn’t change the cable change. Goes from channel 3 (which the cable runs on) to channel 4 (non cable). Will the remote work with Comcast Cable services? If so, how do I program it. There are no codes in the small manual that came with the remote. My Menu button is also not working. I can get the menu to come up but I can not scroll thru the menu list. Any suggestions??

I have a living solutions jumbo remote. My husband programmed it to our jvc television, but now the channels are all messed up. For example, the weather channel is not the weather channel anymore, it is the discovery channel. Further more, the channels do not go up as high as they once did. Has anyone had this happen? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

I don’t know if it is because the TV has 2 inputs or what but I really need some help because Im not good with electronics! PLEASE HELP!!!!!

There is a lot of information listed here, However, Does anyone want to become famous among internet surfers?

Project: Living Solutions Model: A17G0200 back-lit touch panel universal remote. Find the User’s Guide for this, or any code ledger.

This is the “OTHER” Big Remote. This is actually newer than Gigantic Remotet. But finding any information for this item is almost impossible. To the point where the only info you can find on it, are people inquiring for info about it. I’m throwing in the towel.

If anyone can find any info on this model and you will be a god among us mortals.

3 Press Power button.
4 Point remote at device and continue to tap Channel + untill power turns off.

Repeat for other devices. Keep in mind that newer devices may not be supported by this remote as manufactures continue to change codes. Good Luck & Thanks to those who posted. After reading severial of your posts I was able to program my dvd player remembering the remote has a built in code search feature.

What a waste of money. I bought this thing. It controls all sorts of satellite receivers, but NOT DIRECTTV! Are you kidding me? DirectTV is like the biggest brand there is!

Also, there is no set of arrow buttons which are required to control a satellite reciever – how stupid can you be to design a controller without those?

Total waste of time and money. Dont buy it.
