Question about GoVideo DV2150 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Go Video DVD player remote has gone haywire!

I have a Go Video DVP850 DVD player that has been working just fine for years. Now suddenly the remote is not working. I have put in new batteries and I know it is sending a signal. But it does not control anything on the DVD player. When a DVD main screen is showing and the "Play" is highlighted, pressing the select button on the remote results in the words "Main Menu" popping up but nothing happening. I also get the "can't do that hand" in the upper lefthand corner when trying to press other buttons on the remote. Meanwhile, DVDs play just fine using the controls on the front of the unit. Do I need to get a new remote, or is the problem in the unit itself? GoVideo seems to have a nonfunctioning website, and leaving a message on the one phone number provided (for parts and remote replacements) results in no return calls. Help! JAckie E.

It sounds like your remote has got damp or over time the dust builds up behind the buttons you should be able to take the controll apert and remove the buttons check the pads are clean and not greasy then wipe over the board with some clean cotton cloth where the buttons pads press on to activate usually its just a bit of grease but check their is no button jammed it sounds like this could be the case as you get a different response to pressing the play button so try this first then if dont work still clean the buttons and pads be carefull not to dammage the pads they should come out all together and have little black pads stuck to them make sure their xlean and grease free if this still dont work then you can get but make sure its not one of the cheaper ones a all in one remote this should solve your problem hope this helps

Have you tried fresh batteries? try that first , if not successful , get a digital camera and point your remote control at the lens while the camera is on, if you see a white blinking light then the remote is fine , if you see nothing buy a new remote control .. it can be a problem with the infared amp inside the dvd player if all else fails.

Hello

you can test your remote with a mobilephone camera like this:

open camera on the phone an hold the remote front against the camera

(approx 10cm from it) press a button and look in the display on the phone.

if the controller works you should se a blue light in the display coming from the remote front.

if no light: try other batteries again note the battery polarity. no light= controller broken.

if there is light= the remote is working. try to disconnect power from the DVD for a few minutes,

and try again. if it still not works the player is propably broken.

Good Luck

Remote control has stopped working


If you have replaced the batteries with KNOWN GOOD ones, observed the proper polarity when re-installing the batteries AND made sure the remote is in DVD "mode" (if it is a multi-remote) when trying to use it, the remote is bad. Replace the remote.

Onkyo DVD player - remote doesn't function at all


One of the two things might have happened:
- The IR sensor got covered - by some reason
- the IR sensor talks to a small controller back - which is not working at all.

Coby 626 DVD Player Remote Not Working


I have a COBY DVD player TF-DVD7005 that hadn't been used in a while. When I charged the battery and the light went from red to green, nothing happens when I push play and the DVD doesn't spin. Could the battery be dead despite the green light and where would I get a new one?
