XR2 remote oddness

I recently replaced my old silver remote with a new XR2 remote. When attempting to program it to my TV, it will not accept the "10000" code for Sony. I hold "Setup" until the button turns green, but after entering "1 0 0" it flashes briefly red, briefly green, then off. Needless to say, it will not operate the TV. Suggestions?

I should add that the Sony code is 5 digit - "10000".

There is a mistake in the little pamphlet that comes with the remote. Try 10810.

The online Remote Code Lookup tool also lists 10000 as the "Most likely code" for the XR2. This may be a carryover from the instructions for the old silver/red or silver/gray legacy remotes.

Well guys, the "10810" was accepted. I'll make a note of the code for the next time. Thanks!
