Question about Funai F413TA 13" TV
My original remote control got broken, and cracked and finally just quit working. I purchased a new factory replacement model, but it does not work at all. It won't turn on set or change channels or anything. So neither the old remote or the new one work. Is it possible that the remote feature on my set is broken? Where is it located? How can I check it to see if the problem is in the remote or in the TV itself?
You can check the remote by holding it very near an AM radio. Have the radio turned on and tuned about the middle of the AM broadcast band and push the button on your remote. You should hear a popping sound come through your radio speaker. If you can't hear anything, try moving the remote around and tuning the radio. If all fails then the remote is not working. If you DO hear the popping sounds then you have a problem with the IR receiver in you TV. There's a little plastic "window" in the front of your set where the IR signal enters. If dust has collected on the inside this could block the IR signals from entering. Also the IR receiver itself may have gone bad. The remote for this TV has to be an exact replacement. I've had this problem too by trying a substitute. Stargazer
