While we appreciate any interest that you may have in submitting product ideas and materials to Mattel, we only develop products that are based upon ideas developed by our large staff of in house designers or are submitted by professional product designers and brokers with whom we have long standing relationships. For these and other reasons, if we receive any product idea or material submissions from someone we do not have pre-existing relationships, we will not review them and will return it without retaining any copies of it or sharing it with any Mattel employees who are involved in research, design, marketing, or licensing. So, please don’t submit any product ideas or materials directly to Mattel. If you’re interested in soliciting interest in any product ideas or materials that you may have, you may want to contact a professional designer or broker that specializes in consumer products. For a list of these professionals, you may contact the Toy Industry Association at 212-675-1141 or at www.Toy-Tia.org.
Please restart the Smart Remote programming process, and retest the controller. If this method is unsuccessful, please check the latest DVD code list to find the proper code for your DVD player. The latest code listing can be found at www.service.fisher-price.com. Also, if you do not have your quick setup sheet, you can download it at www.service.fisher-price.com. Please try setting up your Read With Me™ again using this Smart Remote method and quick setup sheet.
Here are some tips that may help you during the quick setup: Make sure you are using fresh alkaline batteries inside your Read With Me™ controller.
If you have followed the instructions on the quick setup sheet and your Read With Me ™ controller is still not working with your DVD player, try the setup again from the beginning.
It is possible that one of the signals did not register when pressed on your DVD player’s remote.
When pressing the numbers on your DVD remote be sure to wait for the audio prompt to finish and the LED on the Read With Me™ controller turns on.
If your DVD player is not responding to your InteracTV controller please try the following:
Make sure you have set up your InteracTV controller correctly.
Try moving your InteracTV controller closer to the TV.
Replace the batteries on your InteracTV controller.
Make sure your InteracTV controller is pointed directly at your DVD player.
Always be sure your hand and the activity card are not covering the red window on the front of the InteracTV controller when removing and inserting an activity card.
Make sure there are no large objects between your InteracTV controller and your DVD player. Large objects can block the signal between your controller and DVD player.
When changing activity cards, always make sure you remove the activity card from your InteracTV controller slowly, wait a few seconds, and then insert another activity card.
Double check that the 3-position memory switch on the underside of your InteracTV controller is in the proper position. Refer to your InteracTV User's Manual for instructions on how touse the 3-position memory switch.

Insert the test card. If the DVD skips to the test screen, press each letter A-I on the test card and wait for the corresponding letter to light up on the TV screen before pressing the next letter. If each of the letters successfully lights up, press each of the two arrow buttons and wait for the arrow button to light up on the TV screen before pressing the next arrow button.
If all the buttons light up, remove the test card. The footage should now display a screen with 3 activity cards on it (menu screen). If so, you have successfully programmed the controller.
Insert an activity card you are now ready to play. See the "Playing with InteracTV" section of your manual.
If all the buttons do not light up or you return to the menu screen when the card is removed (the controller is only partially functional), it is possible there is a different code which will give the controller full functionality. Try programming a different code using one of the two programming methods. See Programming the remote using Manufacturer’s codes section or Programming the unit using the manual search method section of your manual.
If you have exhausted all the codes and none of them gives you full functionality, (changing a macro may help) see the "Using Macros" section of your manual.
