Malfunction

If the device cannot be used after repeated attempts at programming, please check whether the hand-held transmitter is equipped with an alternating code system.

To do so:

▷ Read the instructions of the hand-held transmitter.
▷ Hold down the memory button of the integrated universal remote control longer.

If the LED of the integrated universal remote control flashes rapidly for a brief period and then lights up continuously, the hand-held transmitter is equipped with an alternating code system.

In this case, program the memory buttons as described under Alternating-code hand-held transmitters.

Please obtain information on synchronizing the device in the operating manual of the device being set up.

Programming will be easier with the aid of a second person.

2. Program the integrated universal remote control as described above under Fixedcode hand-held transmitters.
3. Locate the button on the receiver of the device to be set, e.g., on the drive.
4. Press the button on the receiver of the device to be set. You have approx. 30 seconds for the next step.
5. Hold down the programmed memory button of the integrated universal remote for approx.

3 seconds. Repeat this work step, if necessary, up to three times.
