remote will not operate volume or on/off switch


Hi
Check your remote control for its infrared emission. You can check it with the help of a cellphone with camera option. Put the phone to camera mode, and place the remote at about one feet away from it lens, and press each button on your remote control. If there is any infrared emission from the remote control, the cellphone camera will sense it, and you can see its image at its screen. Before doing this test, put new batterys to your remote control. If ther is no infrated image seen on phone camera screen, check the battery contacts of the remote contro for any rust or dust. If they are also OK, and still there is no image on the camera screen, the remote control is damaged. OK.

Does not work


Hello
Check its battery contacts first. In remote controls, if battery contacts get rusted or dusty, proper battery connection will not occur. If battery contacts are good, check its infrared emission. You can check it with the help of a cellphone with camera option. Put the cellphone to camera mode, and place the remote control just one feet away from its lens, and push each button on the remote control. Eventhough human eye cannot detect infrared rays, electronic cameras can. If there is infrared rays emitting, you can see its image on the cellphone screen. If not, be sure that the remote contro is faulty. If there is infrared image, and still the device you wants to control does not respond; infrared sensor inside your device is faulty, and should be replaced. OK.

Volume control on reciver isn't working. Only using remote control for volume works. So I must need a volume control for the receiver. Is this an easy fix or not worth the time to fix


Hello
You haven't specified if all the other functions are working with the remote control or not. If no functions are working with remote control, either there is no infrared emission from your remote control handset. Check it with the help of a cellphone with camera option. Cellphone digital camera can detect the infrared rays comes out of the remote control. Just put the cellphone to camera mode, and place the remote control just about 1 feet away from its camera lens and push each button on the remote control and see whether there is any image of infrared rays indicates at your cellphone camera screen. If not, be sure that the remote control is not working, and should be replaced or repaired. Replace the cells first, and check. If this does not helps you and still the remote control is not working, replace it.
If the remote control works, and the all the other functions of your device can be set with it, the motor of the volume control or it control circuitary has damaged. To check this, you must have through knoledge in electronics and is a time taking service work. OK.
