New slimline 2 remote won't sync with TV

I just received a replacement slimline 2 remote. Following the directions to set it up, when I press the optik button the led doesn't flash (it only stays lit in solid green) and doesn't allow me to enter my TV code. Pressing the TV button the led also does not flash red.
When I hit the optik button it's turning the PVR on, but nothing happens with the TV button.

Step "7" on pressing the OK button was my biggest mistake in programming my remotes.

I have this information already- my post states that I did all these steps and it didn't work. The optik button doesn't flash green- only stays solid.. And the tv button doesn't flash red at all.

point remote at tv- hold "options" in bottom right corner- "tv" will flash twice- enter 00 followed by your tv's two digit code- hold power until tv shuts off then press ok. if you dont have a name brand tv, HOLD power down after punching in 0029

Nothing is flashing- I've mentioned that twice now. I have the instructions.!

To clarify, when I press the options button the light stays green and turns on the PVR right away- since I got this replacement remote, neither LED lights will flash, so it won't let me program the remote to turn on the tv.

This post refers to completing a factory reset. IF a factory reset is not possible, you may have a faulty remote which needs to be returned.

 

BTW, when I press the options button (lower right of remote) on my remote, the PVR stays off. Might you be confusing the Optik button & the Options button in your descriptions?

I don't have a mode button- I have the slimline 2 remote.
Yes I'm pressing optik and not options.. the light just stays green and shuts off/on the PVR right away, it doesn't flash.
When I press the tv button there is no red light- ever...
this was a replacement remote for a broken one, surprising it doesn't work..

If you're trying to program the remote for your TV, the instructions for the Slimline 2 remote clearly say to use Options. Neither remote uses the Optik power button to try program it for your TV. The link WestCoasterBC posted below two weeks ago has the instructions.
