Go to TV Parts Universal TV Stands DLP Chips ShopJimmy to see if they have a replacement remote. If not then get a logitek Harmony remote control. It will operate every component you have that needs a remote. It will never go obsolete or not have the right codes either. It gets it's programming from their website.

My remote wont turn on or off

First of all have you replaced the battery in the remote? They do need replacing every so often. Some times remotes do wear out and will not work then you have to get a replacement.Is there any thing covering the front of your unit you are operating. If you cover the electronic eye your remote will not work and also make sure the electronic eye on your remote is clean and clear.

I bought a Denon AVR-2807 used from eBay, I got it hooked up properly to my speakers, JBL E100 front bi-amped, JBL EC35 center and E50 rears, no subwoofer. HDMI from PS3 to Denon and HDMI from Denon to...


This is strictly a remote control failure.

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
They also sell replacement remotes.
Or look on eBay, usually much cheaper if available.

Another thing would be to make sure the receiver's remote eye isn't picking up infrared from anything else in the environment.

Using a magic eye with an onkyo av reciever

Logitech's Harmony 900 is an RF remote that works through doors or walls. I think that it may be what you are looking for.

I have a yamaha receiver that turns on and off with any button for my remote for the direct tv. any advice.

Best bet would be to call the company that installed the direct tv system and ask them if there is any way to run the system with another code from the remote than it had now. You probably won't be the first with this problem so they will probably already have a solution ready. Only problem with that being that if both the receiver and direct tv system work on RF frequencies instead of IR lights like normal TV remotes, then it will require to use a different frequency to operate and will require a technician to come to your home and they might charge for that. If all else fails you can always try to isolate the optical eye of the receiver if it does work with IR lights to blind it from the remote. But doing so will also blind it from its own remote and you might have to resolve to operating the receiver by hand. If it woks in RF, then if your lucky enough taking the antenna for the remote off of the receiver will shorten its range and might just be enough for it not to respond to the direct tv remote. It will still work with it's own remote though, but having no antenna you will need to get closer to the receiver.

Non-functional pioneer remote


I did read through your comments, I am only going to offer advice to your original question. I have a great deal of experience in these matters and am confident you can repair the device, solving all your problems.
Your remote will most probably be repairable. There are only a couple of things that normally stop a remote from working. Most have been mentioned already across the various posts. To summarise then in order of probability:

  1. faulty batteries or battery connections.... Cleaning the terminals with an finger nail emery board,then a spray with contact lube spray such as CRC 2-26
  2. moisture or contaminants on the switch contact PCB(black carbon etchings) forcing more than one button to be "jammed on" See this TIP I have written. Also has details on how to get the remote apart.
  3. dry/cracked solder joints to the infra-red LED. Resolder the connections to the PCB.
  4. Faulty or dry jointed ceramic resonator 37e4657.jpgresolder first, they dry joint alot. If still no luck, replace the device with the exact same type. Contact me with the markings on it and I can provide you with information to source it.
  5. faulty IR LED.
  6. cracked PCB. Not repairable, you may be able to get a replacement PCB from Pioneer.
I have repaired hundreds of remotes over the years, and was a Key Service Agent for Pioneer for 12 years. If you are interested in repairing the remote, check out the TIP I wrote on how to get into the device, then go through the list above, then post back to me your findings. I am sure we can get to the bottom of it.

AVR-1802 config

If you can find old Handspring Visor or Palm III Pda ( usually5-20 dollars
in trift stores/pawn shops/used gear shoppes ) there is/was a program
for it called "omniremote" ( and perhaps others ) that you could draw the
outlay of the particular remote and copy the IR-signals from a working
remote, so if you could get those 2 ( one of the 2 PDAs , the program )
and borrow a working remote from someone, you could then record
and rescue your remoting ability with the PDA. IT is usually good idea
to "capture" any particular remote with this kin of setup before they die or
get lost. DId this with my TV remote, and once the TV remote died, I could
pull the PDA-omniremote recorded out and contiue using the TV like nothing
happened. Just a thought,

Receiver not taking commands from the remote

Point the remote at a digital video camera to see if you can see the small blue infared light comming from the end of the remote when you aim it at the camera and press a button. if you do see the light then your receiver has a system control problem I'm afraid. You see your eyes cannot see the infared light but the camera optics can. Good Luck

Remote control problem (Model VR615 5.1)

Your problem could be as simple as a cold solder connection on or between the remote "eye" sensor and the microprocessor. it also could be an intermittant Eye sensor assy. The real only way to trouble shoot this problem would be with an osilliscope. You would monitor the waveform comming out of the sensor while its working and see whats it looks like when its not working. if its good all the time comming out of the sensor , then its a rare thing but could be an intermittant microprocessor as well/ if your not a tech theres wreally no other way i can assist you in this repair as its a waveform kinda thing. call the manufacturer in your owners manual, Or try this # 1-800-KENWOOD Good Luck
