If you do not have a code for your device, then you can: Download and open the One For All Setup App on your smartphone (iOS & Android) and look up for your device. This Setup App gives you the full access to our code database, where you can download the latest codes for your device.
Searching The TV Manual

Your TV`s product manual is the starting point when seeking the 4-digit code for your remote. Manufacturers typically include these codes in a manual section for setting up and using universal remotes.

Hold down MAGIC until the light blinks once and then twice and stays lit. Use the DEVICES key to select the relevant device mode. Enter 992, the light will blink twice. Press the Magic key once, the light blinks once.
Make sure there are no obstructions between the device you wish to control and the remote itself. Most remote controls use infrared (IR) technology, which means they need to be aimed directly at the device you want to control. If something is blocking the remote, your commands will not work.
Remove a battery from the remote and press a button to discharge the remote entirely. Reinsert the battery – the LED should blink twice. Press the digits 2 and 8 simultaneously within 6 seconds – the LED should blink twice. Enter the code 9 8 1, the LED will blink 4 times.
What to Know. It`s not necessary to purchase a device-specific remote as a replacement remote for one that`s been lost. A Universal TV remote will work with any device model for almost all manufacturers and may be compatible with multiple devices.
The universal TV controls from One For All are suited to all brands and most of your home entertainment devices. Brands such as Samsung, Philips, Sony, Panasonic and LG. You can conveniently connect up to eight different devices in your house.
In programming your universal remote without a code, you`ll need to: Hold down the SET and Zero (0) buttons on your universal remote four times at the same time. This step is crucial, and this part is where most people fail. You`ll then notice the LED light indicator (usually red) turns on steadily.
Regardless of which universal remote you choose, the majority use a series of unique code numbers to identify the various commands for whichever device you`re trying to control.
TV remote controls work in a similar way but using a type of light called infrared (or IR for short). The remote control has an LED light in it which flashes really quickly to emit a message which is then picked up by the TV. The remote is called the transmitter, and the TV is called the receiver.
As long as your smart TV has an Infrared sensor (or whatever connection type your remote uses, like Bluetooth or Wi-Fi), your universal remote should work with it. But some universal remotes will control only your TV`s power, volume, and channel up/down buttons.
Check whether you need a fresh pair of batteries. Perform a Power reset: Un-plug the TV power cord for 60 secs (or 2 minutes for Android TVs) and plug back in. Alternatively, for Android TVs perform a reset by holding down the power button on the remote control for 5 seconds.
-In all sections, when you are instructed to press a [DEVICE] button, that means you should press either the CBL, TV, or DVD button, depending on which device you are programming the remote to operate. Turn ON the component you want to program (CBL, TV, or DVD).

I have a Hampton Bay Midili fan which I just installed about a month ago and it was working fine. A few days ago when I flipped the switch on the light flickered on and off consistently until I turned the switch off. The remote also stopped working to control the fan and light. Since this model only can be controlled by the remote I am worried I will have to replace the remote already after only 1 month!
ANSWER : In many of these remote controlled lamps you cant use the new spiral light bulbs .. you can only use standard incandescent lights .. if thats not the trouble then you may indeed have a bad controller (in the fan) .. there is probably at least a 90 day warranty maybe as much as 3 years .. make sure the wire nut power connections are secure inside the fan.. if one of the the wires in the fan are not making contact then you will see a similar problem .. once in a while i have seen strong external RF signals interfere with the controller but thats rare and usually doesnt last long ..
.i would : 1. check all the connections .. 2. replace the light bulb to make sure its not flakey or the wrong type .. 3. try to get the fan replaced in warranty ..

Catherine Fantini e-
ANSWER : This isn’t really a problem that can be fixed here on Fixya rather than advise you as a buyer. You’d have to contact the people/company you have purchased the filters from and take it up with them regarding the postage. Hope you get a decent reply.
