Pairing the zTV Remote with Your TV
  1. Ensure your TV is turned on, and the front sensor of the remote faces the TV without obstructions.

  3. As soon as the TV turns off, immediately press the center button to complete the pairing process.

  4. To verify the success of the pairing, press and hold the center button while pointing the front sensor towards the TV for 2 seconds until the green LED blinks, then release. If the TV turns back on, the pairing was successful. If not, repeat the steps above.

Finding the Perfect Spot for Your zTV Remote

To ensure optimal performance, maintain line of sight between one of the sensors and your TV. Your zTV remote features two sensors: one at the front for horizontal mounting and one on top for vertical mounting. Simply place the remote on your chosen surface, press and hold the button for two seconds. If your TV responds, your location works! Secure the remote using the provided Velcro to maintain line of sight and ensure easy access when you're dozing off. If your TV doesn't react, adjust the location until optimal functionality is achieved.

Using the Timer Function

This clever feature can be your best friend when you're drifting off to sleep. Three quick clicks set the timer for forty-five minutes. Need more time? Extend it with a click for every additional fifteen minutes. But remember, if you turn off the TV with another remote while the timer is set, you may be in for a surprise when the TV turns back on.

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.

To power ON your TV when it's in the OFF state, simply press and hold the center button on your zTV remote for 2 seconds. While maintaining the hold for the entire duration, observe the LED on the zTV remote blinking green. Once you release the button after the two-second mark, your TV should power ON.

Powering ON the TV (from the OFF state):

The ON/OFF function requires prior pairing (as detailed above) of the zTV remote with your specific TV model. If you haven't paired the zTV remote yet, refer to the pairing instructions mentioned earlier.

To power OFF your TV, simply follow the same steps as you would for turning it ON. Press and hold the designated center button on your zTV remote for 2 seconds. The LED on the zTV remote will blink green once, indicating that the two-second duration has passed. Once you release the button after the two-second mark, your TV should power OFF.

Powering OFF the TV (from the ON state):

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.

  3. Ensure that when inserting the new battery, the top marking (indicating the positive side) is oriented towards the upper surface of the battery holder. Refer to the accompanying picture for visual guidance.
