Remotes not working for tv

We just recently received brand new Directv receivers. It has a universal remote to control the receiver and the tv. Everything worked great until two days ago. Now the new universal remote won't control the tv and the old remote for the tv won't control it either. The tv can manually be turned on and off, but neither control can run it. We have tried new batteries, and tried to reprogram the codes in for the universal remote.

Re: remotes not working for tv

You have already diagnosed the problem,the remote receiver on the tv is bad,is rare but it happens but before you call for help try unpluging the tv from the wall for 10 minutes and then plug it back in and try it,sometimes this takes care of the problem,if that does not do it you will need the help of a servicer ,your remotes are working but the receiver is not processing the information.If you are familiar with tv service it should be easy to locate the receiver,sometimes is soldered to the chassis and sometimes is part of the push button assembly and conected to the chassis by wires,if is part of the push button is easier to replace,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and ask for help.

Don't have remote, directv can't activate receiver, want to change input to video or av

You should have a remote control to do all this.
If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site Check this site too. Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.

Zenith tv, model #b27a11z. My remote stopped working with my tv. The remote lights up and the controls all work manually. I changed batteries, even got a universal remote with negative results. Its as...

Hi Keith,

First of all, thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.

My first advice is to confirm if the remote control is not the issue here and ensure that the fault came from the TV itself. Point directly your remote control's infrared emitter(Sensor) to your cellphone camera and then press any button key at the remote control, you will be able to see the flash of an infrared through your camera if the remote control is working fine. Watch the video below to have an idea how you gonna do this.

If you've confirmed that the remote control is not faulty, this is an indication that the problem is on the infrared receiver inside the TV. I would advice you to clean the TV's front panel infrared lens using a soft cloth, keep away all obstruction from the IR receiver, turn of the bright light in the room and check if the symptoms still persist. If yes, then the IR receiver inside the TV is already faulty and needs to replaced with a new one.

Problems programming DVR remote to TV

If your DirecTV remote is in SAT mode and the power button isn't turning the receiver on and off, you will likely need a new remote. There isn't suppose to be any trick to getting the power button on a remote to work. However, only DirecTV tech support can confirm this. I would give them a call right away.

Volume is very low

Use the satellite receiver remote control to adjust the volume first. The receiver itself offers volume control and you probably have that turned down. Then you are trying to raise it with the volume control on the TV. This is raising the TV volume, but there isn't much sound there in the first place. Use the receiver remote, and you will probably see a volume bar. At some point it might say something like "best stereo" or a star might appear. If that happens leave the volume set there, otherwise just raise it all the way. Then control the volume with the TV remote, or program the DirecTV remote for your brand of TV, and the volume button should control the TV then.

    NEED HELP !!!!! remote will not work (original nor directv programed)

    If the front panel lock is on, you will need a working original remote (or a universal remote properly programmed for RCA) to turn the set on. The IR receiver is next to the buttons on the fromt but the RCA IR receivers are very reliable, and I have yet to see a bad one in a modern RCA TV. Once you turn the set on by remote, you can enter the menu and turn the FPA off.
