Question about RCA 32V550T 32" TV

1 Answer

Remote Control wont Work

After cleaning fingerprints off the top control panel of the TV, the remote control immediately stopped working on the TV (no on/off, channel changing, nothing). The indicator light on the remote lights up so I know its working. I replaced the batteries and did all the troubleshooting, I even replaced the remote with a universal. I must have hit something on the control panel to stop the remote from working. Help.

Re: Remote Control wont Work

Did you spray the cleaning solution right onto the control panel?? Well if you did you may have shorted out your remote sensor eye. If irt dosent dry out in a few days then your gonna need a new one. Go to and they will assist you finding what you need. Good luck

My telefunken tv is not responding to my remote control even though the remote control is flashing

The indicator lED at the remote control do flash, means it does not work properly. 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.

The Remote Control will not turn on the Television, nor will any of the other remotes that I used to use.

The following is based on the assumption that none of the remote control functions work even after the set is turned on, but the set can be operated normally with its front panel control buttons.

Spray a small amount of window cleaner on a soft cloth or facial tissue and use it to gently clean off the plastic window over the remote control receiver on the TV. It may be obscured by tobacco tar or a child's smeary fingerprint.

If that doesn't work, then the remote control receiver circuit needs repair.

TV Volume goes up by itself and remote wont work


There are 2 reasons that this is happening in respect to the problem commencing after your daughter has cleaned the tv. Either your daughter has sprayed the volume button with cleaner and fluid has got into the the graphite pad under the button and conducting as though the button is being pressed continuously..or she has put too much pressure on the button if it is a metallic plate contact switch.One way to find out is by pressing the down volume button.does it it click ? if it does.try the up volume..If that doesnt click the problem is the metallic plate is dented in making contact hence a new switch. Another cause ive seen is cleaning the remote control with cleaner and fluid has got into the remote and it sends signals to the tv all the time..If the remote control is hidden under a cushion and the problem stops, then the remote control is at fault and needs drying out..Hope this helps :)

Remote control not responding

Perhaps you can try what I do when my KV24FV300 runs through channels and will not stop.  Hard to watch and remote will not work.  Nothing works but on and off from set. 

Sony Says:  Take all batteries out of ALL remotes that you use in any way for that set, VCR, etc.  ALL batteries out.  Turn TV off at set.  Unplug TV.  Wait at least 15 minutes then replace all batteries in ALL remotes.  Plug TV back in and turn TV on from set.

Maybe, just maybe it will work.  If it does not work why not call Sony, they always say that cannot happen but they have a solution for it.

Any Remote Control for my TV does not work!

If you're sure the proper codes have not been lost in both your remotes, then possibly the IR receciver in you TV has gone bad. Stargazer

Controls not working on Philips 28" TV

We had this problem with a 28PW6515. The control would work for 30 seconds after switching on, then nothing. It was diagnosed as the "glue chip" which handles all the control functions. About £200 to fix it as it's a surface mount chip.
