All of a sudden my TV remotes do not work properly

All of a sudden one day, my TV remotes stopped working properly for my Hitachi TV and HD receiver. The universal remote only works from close range now, and can not control the TV volume or other TV options. However, the remote that came with my TV also does not work. Oddly enough, the remotes will work sometimes for a few minutes, then they are back to their old ways.

I tried changing the batteries, but that didn't work.

I've had this TV and HD box for over a year and have never had this problem before.

I don't know if this is related, but my TV will not go into low power mode now when my HD receiver is turned off.

    thanks for the answer, however, the HD receiver is also having issues. The remote only works from close distance as well. Obviously the HD receiver has its own sensor, and the odds that both the tv sensor, and the hd receiver sensor are having problems is very low.

    my remote just will not work, it will work on other hitachi tv's but not mine and their remotes will not work on mine either.

Since you said that the remote that originally came with the television does not work either, it's most likely a problem with the IR sensor in your television.

To make sure that something more important with the television did not fail, the next time this occurs, walk up to the television and attempt to manually change the options using its controls.

My Phillips SLC4 flat screen TV has suddenly


The problem has cleared itself a day later after being switched on/off a few times.I suspect the 'computer part' of the TV (channel processor, instruction decoder etc) received maybe a power glitch or an illegal infrared instruction (2 remotes used at once for example) and 'locked up' leaving just the analogue side operating.
I was going to continue happily using it with just the analogue side slaved to my Hd recorder for digital signals but it seems to have got over whatever it was that upset it.

LE26R74BDX TV Not responding to Remote


there is a easier way to check your remote.
Open your radio on AM frequencies, you don't need to be tuned just noise is perfect, then bring your remote near the antenna and press some button. You will ear the frequency in your radio. If it works this way but not on the TV make sure to press the TV button before using it (if the remote is universal).

No controls


this should be easy to fix. The first thing is to check the buttons. Make sure that the buttons ar not pushed in and they work. What I meen is that when you push a button make sure it makes a cliking noise when you push it and releas it. If it dose not that is your problem. If they all work, Unplug the tv for 30 min. then plug it back in. It should work after that. If the remote dose not work after unplugging the set, you may have internal problems
