If the regular television remote is the one that came with the set, try new batteries. If it still doesn't operate the TV, try the cable remote again after making sure you have properly set it for your brand of TV. If after all that the remotes still don't work the set, the remote sensor in the TV has probably gone bad. It's a part that can be replaced, although I can't give you any precise cost. A repair call to replace it would have been between $75 and $100 when I was a road technician, but that's been several years now.

I'm going from cable to an antenna, and the remote will not work, I've put in new batteries, any help would be appreciated. I can turn on the tv without it but cannot do anything else.


If your going to a regular antenna, you have to use the tv remote to operate the tv. unless you have a cable box. Sorry if I did not understand the problem. God-Bless!

Why won't television turn on with remote control?


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience.

TV CODES FOR 32'' RCA HD TV


if you bought a new rca tv, the codes have changed. until the cable companies catch up, you will need to use the remote that came with our tv AND the remote that came with your comcast box. Or, you can buy a LEARNING UNIVERSAL remote. this is different than a regular universal remote.

Need to switch to dtv from reg tv but dont have fac. remote


most universal remotes will only do basic functions on your tv like changing volume or channels only some will do menu functions or change input source. if you have a universal remote with a input or source button you can try it some cable and satelite remotes have this function and are discribed in the user manoal. If all else fails you can order a original remote from the manufacture or your local tv repair shop

Make sure the remote works by pointing the remote to a digital camera or cellphone camera and look on the screen

if it works, it should be a light from the remote

Menu feature on pltv-3750 is not functioning on dtv source.


ATSC is not a cable tuner, it is for antenna only. Qam tuner is for HD cable. If you dont have a QAM tuner you need a cable box.

REMOTE OPERATION


Looks like a common frequency and coding problem. Try to keep the TV and Cable box far away and try the remote. If it works, then, escalate to Cable operator for providing a new box with remote or ask for a different brand of cable box.
