Pentax Kx code for universal remotes!!!

Hey everyone... i was searching on here for the code for universal remote controls and i couldn't find it... so I went to it and found the code for the pentax remotes.

her's how I did it.

went to this site to find my remote's manual

Replacement Remotes: New OEM TV VCR DVD Stereo Replacement Remote Controls

then I downloaded the code book for my remote.

i tried a lot of the codes and found that the sony vcr code 038 (for my remote worked)

so... if you have a universal remote, try sony codes and you should be able to shoot with your camera!

Nice find, but our TV might always change channels when I'm taking a photo and that would drive whomever is watching nuts!

I often see the remotes for sale at garage sales. I'll keep looking for some that are reasonably sized.

I bought one of these for $3.94 (including shipping) and it works perfectly.

I don't think you'll find cheaper or smaller at a garage sale.
