    Batteries are good. Infrared is good. Nothing is blocking the path between the remote and the TV. Could there be a code that needs to be entered?

Batteries can be bad or installed improperly. If you know someone with a digital camera that has an lcd display, point the remote at the camera while someone is looking at the camera's image in real time. Infrared will appear as white light to the camera's CCD "eye". Cool trick.
Remember, IR is line of sight. Make sure nothing is blocking the path between the remote and the TV. Also IR remotes and fluorescent lighting doesn't mix.

We have a Mitsubishi remote: 939P434A1. Yes I know it is ancient, but our TV still works well. It just quit working - tried replacing the batteries. Any other suggestions.


If you can't find a replacement for your Mitsubishi remote, contact the TV maufacturer or a dealer who carries your TV, and ask which remote is compatible with it and do codes need to be installed in the remote (some better-quality remotes <e.g. the Harmony 600 by Logitech> automatically install the codes at the point of online programming) ?

It wouldn't be something as simple as worn-out batteries would it? electric_hwy.gif

Same thing! Remote doesn't want to work


Try cleaning the infrared LED on the PC board. I had the same problem (10 year old Toshiba). LED was cloudy with dust- also clean inside the TV where the light comes trhough. Works fine now

Remote control problem: your going to laugh at this but this was an easy fix, after my husband told me that there was something wrong with it, I tried to use the remote and he was right, it wasn't working. I changed the batteries that evening and sure enough it still wasn't working. The next day I had a closer look and thought that it wasn't right that a new t.v. remote wouldn't work, and lo and behold the problem? My housekeeper put a picture right in front of the electric eye of the t.v.! Guess what, it works quite fine again, thank-you for your time, and I am glad that it wasn't anything major. Peggy
