    A friend gave me a Panasonic pt-ae100e projector, but no remote. I tried googleing for universal remote control codes, but no luck yet. Can anybody help me with programing my remote?

    Aren't there supposed to be buttons on this projector which allows you to use it without a remote?

    somewhere
    I couldn't find anything as far as codes go. The only thing i know to try, if you still have the instructions for the remote, is to use the tedious power button method. All universal remotes i know of have their code list, then they also give instructions for if you tv isn't listed or the code doesn't work. This consists (usually) of pressing buttons in a certain pattern and then repeatedly pressing the power button until the tv switches on. This can take a long time as it is essentially going through ever possible code the remote can work with manually. Once the tv turns on, it'll tell you to hit the enter button or whatever button is instructed. MAKE sure to hit that button to lock it in or you'll have to do the whole process again. Good luck.

    Is there a way to look on logitechs website and see what devices their Harmony remotes work with? Maybe that would have the code.

    I'm not sure if there even is a way to get that information out of that. I figured it might be a starting place, especially if anyone here has the remotes and knows more about them than I do.

    If you already have a remote check the manufacturer's page, they may have a tool for finding out the codes. Like this one:

    http://www.oneforall.com/en_UK/support

    Suggests 1310 as a 4-digit code for your projector, or 31331 for 5 digits. But you can get different codes out of it by sticking in different remote control models.
