Remote won't turn on tv

Our tv won't turn off or on with the remote anymore. It is the remote that came with the direct tv. The remote works with the direct tv box if we go through the dvd player. Also we got another tv and the remote doesn't work either. You can turn both tv's on manually and everything if fine. We replaced the batteries on the remotes. Is there a fuse or something on the t.v that controls the remote?

Re: remote won't turn on tv

No, there is no fuse on the television that control the remote, there is a component that they call IF means infrared.its a circuit that recieved the signal from the remote,amplify them and convert them to signals then decoded by the system control.if the remote is not working with the two tv then the IF circuit needs to be repaired.since you say that the remote works with the direct tv box.then i could assume that the remote is could also be that the remote is not compatible with the tvs.try getting the the right remotes for the tv and see what happens.if it does not turn the tv on then we safely say it is the IF circuit.then you will have to take your set to a repair tech for repairs.good luck.

I had the same problem with my ILO tv, I found a code for Funai- manufactured by the same company. Unfortunatly I don't know the codes anymore, but I hope it helps.

Everything slowly went wrong

Most likely you have a locked up micro on the main board. You would need to have the main board replaced. If the set is not under warranty your cost to repair would exceed your cost to replace.

Remote won't turn set on anymore!

Hi Smittie, I had a similar problem with another type of TV set. All functions work well except power. The solution was to replace the batteries, perhaps they are running low. It will also reset the remote which might help as well. Hope this will work for you too. Cheers.
