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...

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.

Remote control not working


Hi,
It could be either remote is bad or remote sensor located at tv front is not working.
You can test remote with help of any digital camera, watch remote front through camera and press few buttons on remote, you will see infra red led blinking at remote front, that means remote is good and working. Remote sensor in tv is defective and need to be replaced by qualified tech.
If infra red led of remote does not blink pressing any button while watching through digital camera then problem is remote, buy new one to solve the issue.
Thanks.

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.
