RMC12010 service remote

A service remote control is required for calibration. The RM Series RMC12010 remote is a 3rd party service remote clone available from sites such as Ebay. The RMC12010 remote required is shown in the following picture:

Please note that the RMC12010 remote does not correctly map the MULTI-REV and MULTI-FWD buttons for the LD-V4300D (and these buttons are required for the calibration process). The correct codes for these buttons are given in the Pioneer LD-V4300D Overview page. You can use either a combination of the RMC12010 and the Pioneer CU-V113A remote, or use a programmable remote and the key-codes provided on the linked page from this site.

Pioneer service remote controls produced after the GGF1067 do not seem to produce the correct key-codes for MULTI-REV or MULTI-FWD either.  Again, a combination of the CU-V113A and the service remote can be used.

The mapping of the RMC12010 service remote keys (to the original service remote keys) are shown in the following table (note: the most important one to know is [ESS] followed by [TEST] which switches the player into test mode (there is no need to power on holding DISPLAY or use any DIP switch settings on the LD-V4300D)):
