Thanks for the question. My name is Dan.

44lc7d is not a valid model number. Can you double check and get back to me?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

If you feel I may have saved you a headache or professional labor charges, please also consider leaving a tip and positive feedback. Thanks!

The default PIN is 0000. If that doesn't work, enter 7777 which is the override code. That will erase the previous and allow you to setup a new one.

All that information would've been helpful to me, initially. I will opt out... perhaps someone else would care to help.

Thanks for sticking with us.

As you have seen - the default password XXXXX XXXXX
The override password (backdoor) is 7777

CHILD LOCK disables the TV buttons, and only the REMOTE can unlock it.

Please be sure you have fresh batteries and have pressed the TV button on the remote before entering the 7777 backdoor.

Next - test the remote is actually transmitting. Point it into a digital camera lense and look in the viewfinder (cellphones will work good) then press a few of the buttons to see if the IR transmitter "glows"... or put it near a radio tuned to an un-used AM station in your area - and you should hear some clicking noises from the radio's speaker.

If you need additional - Just Ask.
