You need the original remote. The universals will not get in to the deeper functions. If you have a remote called One-For-All, they have some extended commands, that may do something for you. You have to call their 800 number for the extended commands. This type of remote is a hassle to use, because you have to use the function key and enter 3 digit number codes for the extra functions. If the set is still very good, I would strongly consider to invest in an original remote. If it is not available anymore, then start checking out the used electronics places, and the fleamarkets. I am sure that on the net you should be able to find someone who is selling the model you need.

My Visio E371vl won't power on with remote. I changed batteries & even bought a universal remote & no power on. the new remote works on other Visio TVs. I can turn the tv on with manual controls.

Dear Anonymous,
  • Unplug the TV for 20 Minutes and plug it back.
  • If that does not work, the remote Sensor on your TV is defective.
  • Take it to a repair shop.

Controller won't work

Just a suggestion,but try unplugging both TV and DVD player for ar least 15 minutes, then go back and plug in and try to turn on. IF this works then you may think about buying a univesal remote and adding both the TV and DVD player onto universal remote and should not have peoblem after that. If unplugging doesnt reset it, then I would call manufacter of TV for further instruction, cud be fuse inside of TV itself. Hope this helps and Good Luck!

LCD TV Remote quit working

First thing, turn off the TV and unplug it for about 2-3 minutes. Remove also the batteries on your remote. Re-install the batteries on the remote and plug in your TV. Power on your TV using the remote. No luck?
Norcent may not be supported by a universal remote. If you just bought your unit new (maybe Best Buy who carries this brand) you are still covered by its warranty. Below are ways you can reach Norcent.

No response from remote

Remote problem could arise from either tv or remote. First check your universal remote on some other tv and if it is okay your tv's infrared sensor has stopped working. You can get it from the local component shops, take the existing sensor with you. This problem could be from the micro processor in rare cases. Best of luck.

Remotes not working for tv

You have already diagnosed the problem,the remote receiver on the tv is bad,is rare but it happens but before you call for help try unpluging the tv from the wall for 10 minutes and then plug it back in and try it,sometimes this takes care of the problem,if that does not do it you will need the help of a servicer ,your remotes are working but the receiver is not processing the information.If you are familiar with tv service it should be easy to locate the receiver,sometimes is soldered to the chassis and sometimes is part of the push button assembly and conected to the chassis by wires,if is part of the push button is easier to replace,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and ask for help.
