Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, let's try the simple one. Check if any of the buttons on the front control panel are stuck. You could also flick/snap them with your finger nail.

Should that be not corrective, then the unit wold have to be opened up, perform voltage measurements,determine faulty component and subsequent part(s) replacement. Further, a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron would be required. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings.Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

You can test remote control by seeing it through camera / camcorder.
see remote face through camera and press / hold any button on remote, you will notice Infra Red diode blinks at front of remote. without camera you can not see IR diode blinks.

Now, if you see IR diode blinks it means remote is functional. Now change batteries and try it on TV, still no joy, TV remote sensor is bad and needs to be replace.

TV remote sensor replacement is technical job and qualified TV tech can do it better.

    i mean the object to which we are focusing the front part of the remote to send the signals to the TV.normal checking can be done with another remote of the same model TV,if it also does not work,it may be the problem to the sensor of TV and otherwise it will be to the remote you have.arranging such a thing is a risk ,but i think the local dealer from which you have brought the TV can help you better if you tell him about that.thank you

Try and hold the remote very close to the sensor and see if you can get it to work at all. How long have you owned the television? Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,

LG 32" TV remote function fails to work intermittently. Works by using buttons on side. LG's remote for sound and DirecTV's remote for turning on station tuning. Batteries new in both remotes.


Try looking for the remote sensor. It should look a little like a camera lens or little red tinted window. If you cannot find it just give the entire front of the TV a good cleaning. Finger prints and dust build up can interfere with the signals. Do the same for your direct TV box.

My tv doesn't show picture and there is no sound it only shows blue screen and the remote don't want to operate.what can I do? Panasonic


Most likely an analogue antenna or satellite dish connection, and or set-up problem! Don't you get a "NO Signal" warning? Check physically your antenna or dish, and connection cables, to ensure that all are correctly connected and not detached or loose. Check your TV menu set-up - make sure you have selected TV from the other possible options such as video, HDMI, USB etc. If that is all OK then call your TV specialist to correctly align your aerial or dish. The remote is likely a separate problem. Been dropped or something? Buy a new universal remote.

How do know if remote control is not working after putting in new battiers


The remote can be tested with a tester--the most common kind is a laminated card with a strip that illuminates when the remote is pointed at it and buttons pressed.

Many digital cameras in a dim or dark room will react on the display screen in the same way--the card type tester is not expensive and requires no batteries.

If you get it tested and find NO functions I can provide advice.

If some buttons work but others do not I can help.

If the remote checks good then the set may have an issue with the receiver (tiny) in the front of the set that receives the signal from the remote and processes it.

My Sony Bravia KDL-40D3000 no longer responds to the IR remote. I also have a 46 inch Bravia, and the remote does work with it. The front panel controls work okay. The remote worked for about 2 years, then...


Had the same problem. The infrared receiver quit working. Could not use the factory remote or the cable remote. Simple fix- I just cleaned the infrared receiver. Both remotes now working.

The remote for my 20: LCD TV has stopped working, i have changed out the batteries and even bought a new one but still nothing. What should i do?


there are several things to try.. first, isolate the source of the problem... get a universal remote (borrow one from a friend if you don't have one--get the instructions, too)...then program it for your tv...if the UR doesn't work, then there is a problem with either the tv or its remote sensor...try the troubleshooting guide for the tv or call the customer service line (ask if there are similar probs going around for that model..you might get some special incentive to quit ****, if so..) If it DOES work, then it's your remote...best thing to do is make sure that the batts are good (which you did....but make sure you didn't get a fresh set of batteries from the same bad lot - it happens)...then check to make sure that the connections for the batteries are not missing, broken, or bent.. Look for corrosion, loose wires, solder gone...anything you can see which might cause your problem...Nothing visible? send it back..or try to exchange it at the store you bought it from, if it's a currently selling model Hope that helps you

REMOTER CONTROL QUIT WORKING


Well I have three suggestions for you. First off I wouldn't recommend including personal information including your full name and address on a place such as this. There are alot of crooks out there. Second, try unplugging the television and taking the batteries out of the remote control at the same time. Leave it like this for atleast 5 minutes and then plug it back in and replace the remote with new batteries. If that doesn't correct the problem, my next suggestion is to buy a new replacement ILO Remote Control, a good site is http://www.remotecontrolscenter.com but there are other sites out there that sell the original replacement remote control. Hopefully this helps solve your problem!
