Maybe the batteries were inserted wrong way ?
Sorry to tell you this but once you have taken the smoke out of the electronic device it is hard to put it back in.

Cheapest way is to purchase a universal remote control in this case.

You could open the remote and try to repair it but as it smoked it probably needs some parts.

Media button not working on my remote control so not coming up on my tv screen?


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.

My remote control has broken. I am getting no response although I have changed the batteries


There are two possibilities for failure; the remote itself and the receiver in the recorder.
Many service shops have a simple device that will reveal if the remote is putting out any signal at all. If it does, the output is probably correct; they don't often fail by screwing up the coded infra-red signal.
If the remote seems to be working, then your problem lies with the receiving end inside the recorder.

Digilogic free view box will not switch on just get red light on


HELLO
Before writing off the freeview box, have you changed the batteries in the remote control? The batteries you get with these units are questionable and they are usually rubbish quality anyway. If you have then it may be a remote problem - check the battery contacts - have the batteries leaked or corroded the contacts in any way?
If all is well, try putting the remote next to a radio with medium wave or long wave on (any AM radio will do). Press the power button on the remote and tune through the radio while doing it - you should hear a pulsing noise.
If the remote is OK then it is certain that your freeview box has gone down and a new one will be needed. I know this reply is long-winded but you would be surprised the amount of times things point back to the remote and not the box. Always try the obvious first!
Hope this helps!

Code for wharfedale dv823b


The codes come from your all-in-one remote control manufacturer. Check the manual or download a code from your remote manufacturer's site.

There may not be a code. Some remotes have a "guess" mode where you simply press "code", point the remote at the device, then scroll up or down using the "channel" button until the unit powers on or off. The remote will memorize the code after you select which device on the remote itself you wish to marry that code to.
