Question about Hitachi 42EDT41 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

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.

Put in new batteries or check that the battery contact points inside the remote are free of rust or acid build-up from leaking batteries.

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).
