You may have an issue in the IR section or there is something in the room that is causing interference with the IR signals. Most likely you're looking at a repair of RMA. Call Logitech customer service and see what they can do about an exchange if the item is under warranty.

Hi, You need a code to match with your TV remote. The codes for the Ge universal remote for Sanyo are 0049 0097 0110 0004 0268 0012 0108 0180. You will have to try each code seperately untill you get one that works. Good luck.

Sorry, no there isn't much you can do at a consumer level with this player, except, if you still have a manufacturer's warranty, taking advantage of it and sending the unit back for warranty repair/replacement (whichever they suggest to you). It is clearly malfunctioning, beyond user control - send it back as a warranty claim (if you still have one on this model). It won't cost you in repairs that way.

Don't put up with a defective product, send it back - get it fixed under warranty free of charge (if applicable), or the unit replaced (again, if under warranty, free).

It won't cost hundreds of dollars and shouldn't take forever to resolve this simple case. Good luck. This is something the manufacturer should worry about; not you.

It sounds like this is TV 1 that you are having this problem with the remote, is that correct? What has changed from when the remote was working till now? Was anything moved like the TV/receiver? You may have some type of interference with the UHF signal. Without getting more specific information, I'm generalizing the trouble shooting steps. Would you clarify if it's TV 1 or TV2. Please post to this site and I will respond back to you.

Remote control range

It could be due to a few reasons, but we'll start with the easiest and the obvious. First I would check your batteries. Change them with some new ones. If that's not the problem, I would clean the IR transmitter on the remote and the IR receiver on the tv. Anything past that may require purchasing a replacement remote.
