About Onn

Onn is a brand of consumer electronics that is exclusively sold at Walmart. The brand offers a variety of affordable products, including TVs, tablets, headphones, speakers, and other accessories. Onn products are designed to provide customers with reliable performance at an affordable price point. Many of the brand’s products are aimed at budget-conscious consumers who want to purchase electronics without breaking the bank.

  • Do not mix alkaline, standard (carbon-zinc), or rechargeable (nickel-cadmium) batteries.
  • Always remove old, weak, or worn-out batteries promptly and recycle or dispose of them in accordance with local and national regulations.

Low Battery Indicator

If while using the remote, the button’s red indicator light flashes 3 times, this indicates the batteries need to be replaced. Please replace the batteries as soon as possible when this indication occurs.

Code Saver

When changing the batteries of your remote, please do so quickly. You have up to 20 minutes to change the batteries in your remote without losing the programmed codes.

Battery Saver
