Element TV remote codes are simple to use and easy to find. If you have a universal remote, it doesn’t matter if it’s RCA, GE, DirecTV, or another model–it will work with any Element TV if you have the right code for the remote. Start by familiarizing yourself with the programming steps below before pulling your code from the list and attempting to pair your remote. Stick around for a note on auto-code-search and how it can make things easier by removing the need for a code.
Programming: How It Works & What To Expect
Element TV remote codes vary by universal remote manufacturer. But the pairing steps may also vary slightly from brand-to-brand. So, note that these are general programming instructions, and you should look up the pairing steps for your unique universal remote (online or in the manual) if these don’t work:
- Turn on your Element TV and check if your remote has working batteries to execute the whole process seamlessly.
- Enter the SETUP mode by pressing and holding the SETUP button until a red light, flashing red light, or flashing white light appears at the top of your remote. Release the SETUP button, ensuring the red light remains on. This indicates that your remote is now ready for programming (where is the setup button).
- Press and release the device button on your remote control. The red (or white) light should blink once and remain on after that. In this case, you should press “TV” because that’s what you want to control. You can also map the universal remote to a DVD player, or a streaming device like the FireStick or Roku. You’ll see options like VCR, DVD, and CBL/SAT, or even DVR here.
- Enter the code using the numeric keypad of your remote control.
- Test the remote by aiming it towards your television and pressing the power button. If the TV turns off, then hit SETUP again to finish programming. If it doesn’t work, try another code in the same way until it does.
Remember, the programming process might require multiple attempts, so allocate some time for this task. Once you’ve successfully programmed your remote for your Element TV, apply the same steps for other devices if needed. Be sure to skim the auto-code-search option at the end of the article too!

Last tip: point your remote at the TV! It’s trying to communicate with line of sight IR sensors, not Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, so it needs to be pointed at the TV.

Bonus: How To Use Auto-Code-Search
To program your universal remote automatically, many remotes include an Auto-Code-Search method. Your unique universal remote’s manual will explain how to do this, but the general steps for it are below. You can use this to move forward without a code!
- Turn on your TV: Ensure your Toshiba TV is plugged in and turned on.
- Press and hold the setup button: On your universal remote, press and hold the setup button until the indicator light turns on.
- Select Device: Press and release the desired device mode button (e.g., TV) on your universal remote. The indicator light should blink and stay illuminated.
- Press and release the power button: Aim the remote control at your Toshiba TV and press the power button on the remote. If nothing happens, use the channel-change options to step through codes, trying the power button at each step to find the right one.
- Find the correct code: Once your TV turns off, that means the remote has found the correct code.
- Save the code: Immediately press the setup button when the TV turns off to lock the code in place. The indicator light should turn off.
