Before you get another remote, just check if there is really a fault in yours. Why not take the remote to a TV or VCR dealearship and see if it works on another Hitachi VCR? If it does not, then the Remote is at fault. Ifit works on another machine, then there is a problem with the InfraRed Reciever on the VCR.

How do I replace the IR sensor?

If you took the batteries out of your remotes to change them, they possibly lost their programming and need to be reprogrammed. I drop my controller often and have to reprogram it. All of the lights light up but the TV appears dead. Either find your control programming guide or look it up on the internet how to reprogram your remote.

I bought a keyin remote and it actually worked but the thing is i accidentally pressed the PRESET button and suddenly all the channels stopped working. what should i do?

I think you succeeded in resetting the remote. However, no harm has been done, either you select SET and see if you can configure it to work with your gadget or better still you go back to where u purchased the remote and lodge your problem so to assit you. good luck.

Ok/select doesn't work with magnavox dvd player

Hi, make sure you Comcast remote is in the "DVD" mode before attempting to work the DVD features. If it is still not working. You need to reprogram your Comcast remote to a different Magnavox DVD code because the code it is currently set for not fully compatible. If you need the instructions to reprogram your Comcast remote go here. If you would like to purchase a new Magnavox DVD player remote you can also search on Replacement Remotes for your DVD player's model number located on the back of the unit. If they have it, it will show for purchase.

It sounds like you have a Security + opener and one of your remotes has reverted to the billion code technology. You will need to purchase a new remote with the same model number and then you will find that 2 of the remotes will program just fine. It will take trial and error to eliminate the bad remote. I suggest you remove the battery and discard the bad one.

Garage door will not reprogram its remotes

Did you actually go to the power head and push the program button, then the remote button?

Is there a small wire hanging down from the power head? It's the antenna wire.

Volume and mute buttons suddenly stopped working

Try changing the batteries. Most times the "tivo" buttons will work but the "tv" buttons will stop working when the batteries are low.

If you have done that, go back into settings and program the remote again for your tv, then give it a shot.
