Operating the RCA RCR6473 or RCR6473N Universal Remote
Your universal remote requires two AAA alkaline batteries (batteries may or may not be included, depending on model).
To install the batteries:
Battery Saver: Your universal remote control saves battery power by automatically turning off if any key is pressed for more than 60 seconds. This saves your battery life should your remote get stuck in a place where the keys remain depressed, such as between sofa cushions.
Using the Remote to Control your Components
Because this remote controls more than one component, you must first “tell” the remote which component you wish to operate. That means, if you wish to operate your TV, you must first press the TV key to put the remote in the TV Mode.
The remote stays in the chosen component mode (such as TV Mode) until you change it. If your remote is in TV Mode, you must change the mode in order to operate your DVD, VCR, DVR, audio component, satellite receiver, or cable box. For example, if you are in DVD Mode, and you wish to turn off your TV, you must press the TV key first before pressing the POWER key.
Volume Punch-through: Volume Punch-through allows the VOL and MUTE keys, when pressed in SAT•CBL, DVD, DVR or VCR modes, to “punch through” to either TV or AUDIO, whichever was accessed last. Volume Punch-through occurs automatically and allows you to control the volume without exiting the current mode. (If either AUX key has been programmed with a TV or AUDIO code, that must be considered when determining the last active TV or AUDIO component used.)
Advanced Punch-through: Volume Punch-through, as described above, occurs automatically. However, if you want to specify whether the Volume Punchthrough is directed to the TV or AUDIO while in SAT•CBL, DVD, DVR or VCR modes, follow the steps below.
- If you cannot locate your owners manual you can view the codes online and download a manual below however if the code is not listed for your specific component we will NOT be able to provide additional codes
- If your remote is over four years old, it might not be able to operate some newer components, or it may be able to operate some functions but not others.
