Everything is pretty straightforward and once you have found the right code, then you should be in business in no time.
The codes below have been listed by DIRECTV themselves to work with your LG TV. If you have tried all of them and you are still having problems, then it would be a good idea to try and programing the remote control manually.
5-Digit Remote Codes for LG Televisions
How to Setup the Remote to Work with LG televisions
- On the DIRECTV remote, look for the “mode switch” and shift it over until it is on AV1
- You are now going to hold down the MUTE button and then hold SELECT button at the same time. The LED on the remote should blink twice
- Here you will enter one of the 5 digit codes from above.
- Try and see if you can turn the TV off or turn the volume up and down.
- If the code does not work, then you can try a different one until you are able to control the TV.
How to Manually Setup the Remote
The codes above should work and you should be on your way to using your DIRECTV remote on your LG TV. If for some reason none of the codes worked, then you could manually try and get the remote to recognize the television.
- On the remote, move the “mode switch” until it is on AV1
- Hold down the MUTE button and also press the SELECT button. When you do this, the LED on the remote should start to blink twice.
- Enter 991 and then the code # for your device. 1 for TV’s, 2 for “AUX 1” devices such as DVDs or VCrs, 3 for “AUX 2” devices such as Audio.
- Once the code is in, you can manually scan for the right code to control the LG TV.
- You will keep pressing the Channel Up button until the TV turns off.
- If the TV turns off, try and control it with the remote, either by changing the channel or turning the volume up.
- If the TV works properly with the remote code, you can press the “Select” key to lock it in.
