Philips RC4318 Remote Issue


All the buttons light up on the remote and do not work/transmit, when we push any buttons (other then "select" and "volume") on our Philips RC4318 TV remote?

Any ideas it?

Much appreciative,
Trish R.

Remote control stopped working changed batteries and still not working

Here are a few suggestions to help you with this problem:
It is possible that the battery contacts are corroded so you might try expecting the contacts and cleaning them. Since you cannot see if the IR signal is being sent, you can use another IR remote that you know works and see if you can Jam the signal of the working remote with your Hql-260wr remote. To do this, push the volume up button on the TV remote and hold it down while at the same time using the known working remote to control its companion product. If the working unit stops responding correctly when the volume button is pressed, it is transmitting an IR signal.

In this case, since you confirmed that the remote is transmitting, you can make sure that you are on the correct device settings for the remote. If you select the TV setting for instance, see if the remote now can control the TV. The main functions to try first are volume and channel buttons.

If this does not work, you will need to find out where the IR receiver is on the TV and make sure that the receiver lens is not blocked by something such as another device like a video console, etc.

My philips srp5107wm/17 only changes the volume on my tv no matter what device i have it set on

The Philips remote is set to "push trough" the volume/mute to the TV for devices that typically don't have a volume function. Older versions of Philips remote used to allow you to select the device to push volume to, but for some reason this is no longer available (or at least I haven't found out how to). So here is the solution I used.

Teach (learning function) the remote to use whatever device you like for volume/mute.

1, Press the button for the device you would like to change
2. Hold down "learn" and the button you want to teach ex. "volume up" until the red light comes on
3. Place the original remote of the device you would like to change the volume on 5-10 cm away from your Philips remote and press "volume up" for this example
4. Repeat these steps for the "volume down" and "mute" buttons
5. Repeat these steps for other devices you would like to "push through" volume/mute to a device other than TV

Hope this helps others. I did find that some devices like SAT may not allow you to change the volume/mute, but otherwise this workaround does the trick.

Need code to use for the tivo remote


Push the TiVo button on the remote. Then push "Messages and Settings," followed by "Settings," and finally press "Remote Control." This will show you the three areas of the remote that are programmable. "TV Power, Volume and Mute," is one section. "AV Volume and Mute," is the second section. The final section is "TV Input."

Pick "TV Power, Volume, and Mute" by pushing right on the direction pad of the remote. This will open up a list of all the brand names of TV that exist. You will find most TV brands will be there.

Find your brand of television and select that option. If your brand is not there, simply go to the TiVo webpage and under "Setup and Support" you will find others who have experience this issue. There you will find a code for your TV. This happens sometimes when the TV is a lesser known brand.

Hold down the button you are programming (i.e. TV Power) for 5 seconds until the red light on top stays on. Then enter one of the codes on the screen.

Push the newly programmable button to test its functionality. If it does not work, repeat the steps with all the possible codes available. One of the codes will work.

Push "Live TV" at this point to watch television.

Use the manual which came with your TiVo in addition to this guide. In the front of the booklet will be a starter guide, which will lead you through the steps necessary to set up your remote for optimum use.

I have no volume on certain channels

The most common problem with no volume only on certain channels is the TV is programmed for 2nd Audio, also referred to as SAP which is a feature activated to transmit a second language such as Spanish. If you push your menu button on your remote control you can toggle over to Audio Menu. Then find the feature that allows you to adjust the sound for Mono, Stereo or 2nd Audio (SAP). Adjust the menu to highlight Stereo and that should cure your problem.
Hope this helps with your particular problem.

Have a Phillips flatscreen tv. I can't turn it on with the remote but can turn it on by pushing power button onthe side of tv. Batteries are new.

Hello, you could still have a worn out power key. Turn on the power manually(power key on the TV) then select channels/adjust volume/press the number keys.If all these work on your TV, then you know another remote is needed.

The tv does not respond to some buttons on the remote but does to others. The ones not working are Power and Channel but Volume and Mute work. New batteries make no difference.It is a Phillips tv with...

There is a way that you can check the remote buttons are working.

Get a mobile phone with a camera on it.

Set the phone to camera mode.
Whilest looking through the mobile. point the the Tv remote at the camera phone and press each button individually. what you will see on your mobile is a light coming from the remote for the buttons that are working. If certain button are not working you will see no light through the camera phone. If this is the case you may need to get a replacement remote.

If you do need to replace the remote this can be quite expensive to buy from the manufactor. So what I would surgest is getting a sky remote off a friend or family member. or even Tesco. argos. It does not matter what the remote is ie Standard, Sky+ or HD remote. (which ever you can get cheaper) The reason behind this is Sky remote have a default code in them to work PHILIPS tv's. When you get this remote if it does not work your telly straight away. What I would then do is remove the battery's from the remote for a minimum of 10 minutes that way it loses the code someone has set it up for and defaults back to Philips Code.

All of the above will sort your Problem out.

Trying to get my directv remote to control this TV but none of the Sylvania codes recommended work any ideas

slide the mode switch to tv, hold down mute and select until the light blinks enter "9-9-1-------1" when the lights finish blinking start pushing push the channel up button. this is a code search. It will transmit every code it knows one at a time. when the tv turns off you've found a code that works. turn it back on, try the volume and see if it works correctly. when finished press select.
most tv/dvd and/or vcr combos won't work with tv codes.
Directv has posted many new codes on their website for combo tv's Go to [ ]to look up the latest codes read the programming section for the remote as there are many customizable features on the remote that most people aren't aware of. good luck
