REMOTE SEEMS TO HAVE DIED - RED LED VS GREEN

Not sure why my remote won't work any more. Had the tv since May 2008 and my remote and tv worked just fine. Now, we noticed a probles when we played a DVD (which we have done since purchase) and the remote just stopped functioning.

I wanted to try to troubleshoot before buying a new one. I have changed to fresh batteries and the backlight works but not the buttons on the remote.

Would appreciate anyone's help.

Thanks!

    Yip - first thing I tried. Batteries work, but the remote doesn't. I have a Vizio Plasma.



    Do you have any other thoughts?

    Thanks very much. I have tried several things. Will call tech support tomorrow, otherwise, I think you are correct. A new remote might be the solution.



    Thanks.

There is a very strong chance that something foreign has gotten into the touch membrane for your remote control or the link from the touch pad to the circuit board. If it is still under warranty, get it replaced. If it is not under warranty a new universal remote may be on your next shopping list. Repairs to OEM remote controls cost more than a new one.

Hope this helps...

Hi i am trying to change the screen size on av2 and 3 but it wont work the aspect button


Check the remote control for its infrared emission from infrared LED at its front. Do not assume that the remote control is OK, as the indicator LED on it lights up. It is only an indication that the remote control circuit accepts the keystrokes.
Just visit this site [Eectro-help]. You will get all details about how to check a remote control. All details are given there. Pull up older posts there. Search for it either by Yahoo or Google.
Make sure that the remote control is correct in all respect first. I assumes that the remote control you possess now is the original remote control of the set. Not a universal one. If it is a universal one, this type of fault can occur, because all universal remote controls won't respond to some functions.

The remote battery died and after replacing it the remote doesn't work, the red led blinks but the door won't open.


The remote needs to be programmed when the battery get's replaced. You will most likely have to take it to a dealer to have it done.

I was watching T.V. and when I went to change the channel, the remote control wouldn't respond. I changed the batteries (generic) & the new ones didn't make the remote work either. I hit the power...


You won't be able to see the light from remote's LED (Light Emitting Diode) because it is IR (Infra Red) which is invisible to the human eye.

Try re-entering the code for your tv to see if it works.

If that doesn't work, the remote might have just died. It happens.

Get yourself a new UNIVERSAL REMOTE for less than $20 and just program it for your tv.

Good luck and post back to let us know how it works out.

Model ws-55711, remote doesn't work but I don't believe it is the remote control, can only change station up or down manually, cannot adjust volume or others manually...


If you can change channels with remote then TV is OK because it has only one infra red receiver (remote receiver) to catch remote signals.
So TV remote seems bad as it works on channel buttons only.
Here is an easy test for remote, watch remote front through any digital camera or even cellular phone camera will work and press channel button on remote, you will see blinking LED at front of remote while watching it through camera. Now press other buttons of remote and I'm sure that LED wont blink.
