Since you don't know which end is defective, you might take the remote to about any store that sells and services consumer gear; they will have a primitive sensor that can detect if the remote is putting out some infrared but the common type of detector cannot tell you if the coding is correct or not.
If you find though that the remote is putting out anything at all, it is probably working properly.
Unfortunately that will mean that the receiving end is bad and that will be more costly to have repaired.

Why isn't remote working after battery replacement?


As long as the battery produces what the remote needs it should work. However the remote itself could be faulty. Or the remote sensor on your device could be faulty. Check that the old battery has not leaked and messed up the contacts. Plus the new battery is actually touching the contacts!

Tip

Remote not working. Remotes can be saved.


Ok, your remote is not working and you have replaced the batteries and it still does not want to work for the device that you are trying to control. I have listed a few tips below that may be of some help to you; these are all considering you have the original remote that shipped with the unit that you are controlling.
Sometimes the chip inside can become overloaded with commands and lock up the processor.
The remote can be saved.
1. Remove the batteries and press every button on the remote control and then install new, not the batteries you took out, but new batteries and see if that works.
2. If step one does not work, then you can remove the batteries and unfold a small paper clip and bend it into a U shape and use it to touch the contacts on both ends of the battery contacts together and clear the memory.
3. If your remote is still not working then it is time to test the remote control, if you have a camcorder or a digital camera, and a cell phone will work. Point the remote at the device and press any button, you should be able to see the IR (Infrared LED) lighting up on the display.
If after all of these procedures are followed and you still do not have command of the device that you need to control. You still have more options.
Either replace the remote control with a new or compatible one, I use 1-800-remotes, www.remotes.com.
Or have the device that you are trying to control diagnosed by a technician and see if the remote IR receiver in the unit is damaged. Unfortunately there is no simple way to test the remote receiver, and 90% of the time the remote will fix the problem.
I hope that this helps you with your remote issues and as always, Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i fix my remote to work my home theater. i have a htp-071 and my remote stopped working. the battries are brand new. I went away for the weekend and came home, remote didnt work. please help.


Test remote for operation. Problem is with either the remote or the receiver in the home theater.
Clean all battery contacts and install new, tested, working batteries in remote. Turn on am radio and tune AM dial to about 600 - turn up volume. Then bring remote to about one inch from radio and hit button on remote. You should hear a beep as long as you hold the button down. Every button will respond likewise. If nada at all remote is trashed, if works with some buttons then you have a partially operating remote. Try cleaning contacts for buttons that do not work or use some aluminum foil under those non working contacts.

Can't link my new lifestyle 48 remote control to my lifestyle 38 system?


If the remote does not work as you expect
If your system does not respond when you press a button on the remote, it could be time to
change batteries. For information on the type of batteries to use and how to change them,
refer to "Replacing the remote control batteries" on page 51
In some buildings, you may experience "dead spots" where the remote control will not
operate effectively. If this happens, move the remote a foot or two and try again. Also make
sure the cord that connects the power supply to the media center (and contains the remote
antenna) is stretched to its full length and is separated from other power cords. If these
efforts do not work, move the media center a few feet to a location where it provides a better
response.
If the batteries are fine and the suggestions concerning "dead spots," above do not work,
you may need an antenna extender. To contact Bose

customer service to request one, refer
to the address list included with the system.

No response when remote control buttons are pressed.. I put new batteries. but not work..


Does the unit work from its onboard controls or is this only a remote control failure?
If the latter...

Try this advice:

"Dead" Remotes Can Be Saved
How to Re-Start Your "Dead" Remote Control
This only takes about a minute and will restart 1 in 3 "Dead" Original Remote Controls. Good Luck!
-----------------------------
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.
Step 5- Try the remote.
Special Note:
If you have a digital camera, camcorder or camera phone you can test the remote to see if it is emitting a signal. Face the remote towards the lens of the digital unit until you can see the front of the remote. Depress any button on the remote. You should see a light (steady, blink or flashing) being emitted from the remote. If you do then the problem might not be the remote but the sensor on the unit.
If it works, Great!
If not, it's time to call 1-800-Remotes or use this website to order a new remote.
Find new or replacement remotes:
http://remotes.com/store/codes_original.html
or eBay: search for "(model) remotes", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

Remote control touch screen is not working


Flip ipen the front face of the remote control so that you have access to the buttons underneath. Press and hold the "light" button on the outside right of the remote while pressing the "enter" button to the right of the number "1" button.

THIS WON'T WORK IF YOU HIT THE "enter" BUTTON BETWEEN THE ARROW KEYS.

The screen should now flash PRESS and VCR 2 - press the onscreen key marked VCR 3.

The screen should now flash PRESS aqnd OSD - press the onscreen key marked OSD.

Test all of the onscreen keys. If you find them still unaligned, repeat the process.

My remote suddenly does nothing


This may sound stupid but have you replaced the batteries in the remote? In either case if the remote is a universal remote (has different buttons usually across the top to select different devices) then the manual should give codes to reprogram it. If you cannot get it working with new batteries and reprogramming then the remote might have gone bad. If the remote does appear to be bad then I would just buy a new universal remote and program it for your equipment since they are not very expensive.
