    How do you get to the system info screen if the remote is not working yet?

    Rj, you can access it three ways. If the front of the receiver has a 'System Information' button, you can use that. You can also press 'Menu' twice on the front of the receiver, or power the receiver into Standby and press the 'Up' button on the front.

Remote paired with other fan in next room. How do i get it off the other reciever?

You should have dip switches on the remote and the receiver in the fan. Usually 4 of them. They are set the same for the communicating pair. Change the dip switches on the fan you do not want operating off the other remote.

I bought a receiver to pair a Centurion D5 motor with thE Digidoor motor.How do i install the Receiver on a Digidoor motor?

Hi there Vusi.
You should have a manual open and close switch on the wall for your Digidoor. You need to find the two wires which control the open and close functions on the Digidoor Trace these back to the Digidoor motor connect these to the Comm and NO terminals. You also need to supply 12V power to the receiver This needs to be connected to the Possitive and Negative terminals on the receiver. These connections originate in the Digidoor motor housing and can be connected right there. Some Digidoor motors have connection terminals for additional remote receivers in the housing. Remember that the minimum connections needed are Positive, Common(Sometimes the common is also the negative supply so you can bridge the common and negative terminals on the receiver) and NO. Then pair the remote with the receiver as per the instructions in the receiver box. If you still cannot come right post pics of the PC boards of your receiver and Digidoor motor and I will identify the connections for you

Says searching but never connects. the yba-10 blinks boes not connect

On RXV3900 using the remote there is a submenu for YBA-10WH (submenu shows Trim, Pair, Connect). Selecting Pair causes the YBA-10WH blue light to flash. Once iPod has Bluetooth set to ON it then displays a box showing "YBA-10WH not connected".

First attempt to connect requires tapping this box which produces the invitation to enter a 4 digit pass code. I had several attempts using pass code for my iPhone - all failed giving message "Make sure yba-10 yamaha is turned on in range and ready to pair". I finally tried keying in a pass code 0 0 0 0 and it paired!

Once turned off subsequent attempts to enable Bluetooth were much easier requiring tapping of the box but not requiring entry of any pass code.

Turn off seems to work easiest by using the remote to select the "Connect" option on the submenu and then selecting Enter on the remote - this caues display of "Disconnected" message on the RXV3900 screen.

Now works fine!

Having problems pairing the remote for Samsung un55D8000. Followed directions but continue to get pairing failure.

Make sure to hold the remote near the bottom right of the tv. There is a red LED and an IR receiver there. The remote needs to be pointed at this area and within 6 inches of the tv to pair the Bluetooth. Samsung doesn't mention this anywhere and I almost returned the tv before the salesman told me about this.

Sounds like problem is with TV. Make sure the remote sensor on the TV is not blocked, it is located at the lower right part of the front of the TV.

Remote key is not working

Hello... not sure were the receiver is but the problem is mostly the remote key lost its pairing to the receiver and the receiver itself is good. Check to make sure the batteries are good in the remote key and change them if need be. Then reprogram the key.

Good Luck....
