Easy Brightstar Remote Codes and Programming Guide

Entertainment is meant to relax you — an escape from your everyday responsibilities. However, sometimes your tech just doesn’t cooperate. Remote controls can be completely cluttered, confusing us by doing too much.

You can program your remote control to act the way you want it to by using codes to command one remote to control all of your devices. The best part is that you don’t have to be a big tech wiz to accomplish this. Of course, you have to have a Brightstar universal remote to do this, but once you do, it’s easy!

What Is A Brightstar Remote

Brightstar remotes are known for controlling hospital room TVs due to their intelligent range and variety of capabilities. However, you do not need to be in a hospital room to own a Brightstar remote. They work for a variety of major TV brands, like LG and Phillips. Plus, universal models usually work without needing to be programmed

But if your Brightstar remote won’t work with your TV, you still have options.

How To Program A Brightstar Remote With Codes

There are a set of specific codes that are used to program Brightstar remotes. The main goal is to consolidate all of your devices so they operate with a single remote, eliminating confusion when you switch between each device (ie., a TV in the living room, and a TV in your bedroom).

The Brightstar brand has a specific set of codes. The remote plus the device type you own are all standardized, so it’s unlikely to face compatibility issues.

Here’s how you do it:

  • Make sure the device you want to pair with the Brightstar remote is turned on. You should already have two AA batteries in your remote before you turn on the device.
  • Pre-establish a list of codes that you’re interested in using with your remote. You could, of course, do everything manually, but that would take much longer than having everything organized in one place.
  • Point your remote toward the device, and hold the “setup” button down until the LED appears to be on. Your remote is now in its “Learning Mode.”
  • Simply select one of the codes from your list and enter them via the remote’s number buttons. They are designed to be easy to read, so it shouldn’t take more than a few seconds for this step.
  • Press and hold the power button while it’s turned toward the TV. This is a test to ensure programming was successful. If you did it right, the TV will stay turned off.

The small LED light on the Brightstar remote will blink repeatedly if you did something wrong during programming. You can try a different code from your pre-selected list if programming didn’t go according to plan.

Common Issues With Brightstar Remote Control Programming Using Codes

Though it is incredibly easy to program your Brightstar remote with a code, it’s not a foolproof process. You may experience some technical difficulties along the way, including some common issues. 

If it’s spotty and only working intermittently, the batteries may not be fully charged. If it’s not in pairing mode, it may stop responding to commands entirely. You won’t be able to teach it new commands unless it’s in Learning Mode.

Frequently Asked Questions

The code isn't working, what do I do?

You should try more codes if the one you tried is not working. But if none of them are working, the batteries could be low, something could be causing interference, or you could have a defective device.

How do I know which remote codes to use?

The correct remote codes are often listed on the manufacturer’s website. If one does not work, there are usually alternatives listed.

What is a universal remote for?

Universal remotes are perfect if you lost your original TV remote. You can program them to work with a range of brands.

Can I use an app to program my remote?

It depends on the brand and model of TV, but typically you can.

What remote codes do I need?

Look up your brand and model of TV and determine the available codes for that system.
