URC1210, URC1240, URC1280: How do I perform a factory reset on the Contour remote?

Before resetting the Contour, please take the following into account:
If you have ever sent in your remote control to our Upgrade Service for an update, these codes will be erased as well.
In that case, it is highly advised not to perform a factory reset.

To reset your remote to the manufacturer's setting please use the following procedure:

  1. Remove a battery from the remote and press a button with it removed
  2. Reinsert the battery – the LED should blink twice
  3. Press the digits 2 and 8 simultaneously within 6 seconds – the LED should blink twice
  4. Enter the code 9 8 1, the LED will blink 4 times
  5. The remote is now reset to its factory defaults.

You can now setup your remote again.
