Question about ViewSonic N3251w 32 in. LCD HDTV

3 Answers

Remote control (UBRC-120) will not work the unit.

The remote will not work, we've had the problem before and I unplug the TV to reset. This time we were not so lucky and we cannot get it to work.
Changed the batteries a couple of times but nothing.

    All of a sudden the remote control (UBRC-120) stopped working. Did what ever I could think of, still no luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated. The TV set is for my old parents who use TV for their own entertainment.

I had the same problem. resolved it by the following......
1. Press and hold the TV button until the red LED turns on and stays on.
2. enter 00000, the red LED will flash and turn off
3. test remote
This procedure should put the remote settings in default for TV.

if all goes well remote should operate the TV

After short warmup period remote control will not change channels or display TV Programme guide. Unit must be switched off and then back on for remote control to operate properly. Problem repeats after a...

Easiest things to check first:
Are your remote controls working: check batteries; check infrared on remotes by viewing with camera phone/camcorder; make sure your remotes are programmed properly for the device.

Another option: do a hard reset of your TV-unplug it and let it sit as indicated in the manual; then turn it back on.

Another option: unplug the TV and use an air-can and thoroughly dust ALL the component input/output access points on the TV. Turn the TV on and see if this works.

Another option: unplug the TV and connect standard 1/8" headphones in the output of the remote OR headphone jack on the TV [try both]. Turn the TV on and see if this helps.

Finally, if these steps do not work: unplug the TV and let it sit for a good hour. Open up the back panel carefully and air dust the remote control sensor. If this does not work, change the remote control sensor.

Hope this helps.

Panasonic remote and volume/channel buttons do not work

My son put a penny in the SD card slot of my Pansonic flat screen tv. I finally got the penny out but now the volume and tv controls do not work. I can change the channels through my cable box but that is it. The volume does not work on my cable remote or the flatscreen. What do you suggest I do to fix this problem?? Thanks, Josh

Tv won't stop changing channels

You need to isolate the problem.
1) Unplug the set for a few seconds then plug it in.
2) Operate the TV with the control/buttons on the TV. (Channels etc)
If the TV operates correctly then do the following.
3) Try operating with the remote unit. If the problem returns then it's the remote failing.

Sometime remotes can be reset.
Try this;
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.

Try it again. If the problem is still there then the remote is bad.
Since this is a new TV you should use your warranty to replace any bad parts.

My remote is not responding to the tv even i have changed the new baterry

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

hope this may help;

My Sharp Remote Control Is Suddenly Stop Working

Ok I just dealt with the Sharp customer support for this problem.

1) You need to unplug the TV for 1 full minute and remove the batteries from your remote aswell (this will reset the system)
2) Hold the power button on the remote for 30 seconds with the batteries still out of the remote and the TV still unplugged
3) After the 30 seconds replace batteries then press every button on the remote beginning with the power button in order from left to right and top to bottom (same way you read)
4) Then plug your tv back in and try the remote again.... and the remote and TV should be back in sync.
