SleepTimer Function:

  • After programming (see below) the zTV remote, a single click on the "push button" (1) will initiate a timer to turn off your TV after 15 minutes.

  • Two quick clicks on the "push button" will set the timer to turn off your TV after 30 minutes.

  • Three quick clicks on the "push button" will set the timer to turn off your TV after 45 minutes.

  • You can continue to quickly click the "push button" in multiples of one, two, or three to set the timer for corresponding intervals of 15, 30, or 45 minutes and so on.

  • After the sequence of clicking the "push button" to set a timer delay, the LED on the zTV remote will blink green the number of times, indicating a 15-minute increment.

For example:

  • One click: 15 minutes

  • Two quick clicks: 30 minutes

  • Three quick clicks: 45 minutes

  • Four quick clicks: 60 minutes

  • Five quick clicks: 75 minutes

  • And so on.

You can restart the delay at any time by clicking the "push button" according to your preferences mentioned above.

Remember that this feature mimics the sleep timer functionality found on many TVs, allowing you to set a time for the TV to automatically turn off, which can be helpful if you like to fall asleep with the TV on without it staying on all night.

TV Power ON and OFF:

  1. TV Power ON (when the TV is OFF):

  • To turn your TV ON, push and hold the "push button" (1) on the zTV remote for 2 seconds.

  • As you continue holding the button for the full 2 seconds, the LED on the zTV remote will blink green.

  • After the two-second period has expired, the TV should turn ON.

  1. TV Power OFF (when the TV is ON):

  • To turn your TV OFF, follow the same procedure as for turning it ON.

  • Push and hold the "push button" (1) on the zTV remote for 2 seconds.

  • The LED on the zTV remote will blink green once to indicate the two-second period has elapsed.

  • After this, the TV should turn OFF.

In summary, pushing and holding the button for 2 - 5 seconds will toggle the TV's power state between ON and OFF after you let go of the button.

Please note that this ON/OFF function requires prior programming (see below) of the zTV remote to work with your specific TV model. If you haven't programmed the zTV remote yet, refer to the programming instructions mentioned earlier.


Please note the remote comes preprogrammed for most Samsung TVs.

Here's a step-by-step summary of the programming process:

Press and Hold the "Push Button" (1):

  • To initiate programming mode, press and hold the "push button" on the zTV remote for 15 seconds or until the LED flashes green five times rapidly.

  • The rapid green flashes indicate that the zTV remote is ready for programming.

Aim Your TV Remote:

  • Within 10 seconds of entering programming mode, aim your TV remote about 6 inches away from the "Programming Receiver" (5) on the zTV remote.

Press Your TV Remote's Power Button

  • Press your TV remote's power button once quickly without holding it down.

  • If the programming is successful, the LED on the zTV remote will flash green, indicating that the programming is complete and successful.

  • If the programming fails or times out, the LED will flash red, indicating an unsuccessful attempt.

Repeat the Steps (If Needed):

  • If the programming fails, you can repeat the above steps to try again.

  • If you have attempted a few times and still not programmed the zTV remote successfully, it's advised to replace the battery in the TV remote and try again.

Test programming was successful:

Use the set described above to turn the TV "ON" or "OFF" using the section above "TV Power ON and OFF"

Contact Support (If Still Unsuccessful):

  • If all the steps have been followed correctly, but you are still unable to program the zTV remote successfully, you can reach out to below or at support@zTVremote.com for further assistance.

It's essential to ensure that you follow the steps accurately and aim your TV remote towards the "Programming Receiver" on the zTV remote during the programming process.

Once the zTV remote is successfully programmed to work with your TV, it will serve as a universal remote and offer the timer and power control functions as previously described.

Battery Replacement Procedure:

To replace the battery:

  1. Utilize a small flat screwdriver to gently pry open the plastic cover located at the bottom of the zTV remote.

  2. Locate the CR2032 coin cell battery within the remote.

Ensure that the "Top Emitter" (2) or "Front Emitter" (4) is directed towards the television with an unobstructed line of sight. You can utilize the double-sided tape to affix the device onto any surface. Frequently chosen spots include the top or side of a nightstand or the headboard of your bed. [For instance, if you're placing the remote vertically on the bedpost, ensure the top sensor is oriented towards the TV.]
