If remote designed for tv, and or other units the mode button may have been pressed etc.

Set to dvd etc instead of one for unit being used on.

The remote can be tested by any shop (usually for free) to see if it is sending a signal......

    Thanks for the reply, but that's not the problem with this remote. None of the major buttons I normally push are working; Off, On, Watch, Listen, etc. The LCD screen started to have some fading also in a couple areas.

    "THE ONLY BUTTONS THAT WORK ARE THE NUMBERS" are some buttons on the remote working and others not?

  • Kelly Oct 30, 2012

    Yes, it's the strangest thing. The numbers are at the bottom of the remote (which I never use), everything above the numbers does not work. One minute it was working then the next it quit. They still make a beep like they are working when pushed, but nothing happens.

    either its in the remote or the set which receives signals and translates them to certain actions is at fault--one or the other.

Buttons make numbers appear on screen

The keypad control board must be replaced in order to address the issue, but keep in mind the part alone is expensive.

Keys stopped working 580i down arrow and numbers stopped working

chances are if its the slide part the flex cable connecting the top half of the phone to the bottom part of the phone may be damage. This needs to be changed.
If the problem occurs with the number pad below the board where the buttons sits on is also damaged.of its only a few buttons try putting a very small crumpled piece of paper below the buttons.if is all the buttons the board is shorting .

Just stopped working flashing a p and some numbers but no buttons will work.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour.

If you still need help, to allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a
NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, your symptoms as shown below:

My touch screen doesn't always work. Sometimes I have to touch all around the square and even then, it won't come on. At times, it stops working when I want to change patterns. It seems to work most of the...

Yes, I have a solution for this problem. Your screen needs to be recalibrated and you can do it yourself. Don't you wish they would just tell you this stuff instead of charging you an arm and a leg? Here's what to do: Before turning on the machine, press the start/stop button, the reverse button, and the needle position button all at once with one hand (one finger on each button). Hold them down and turn on the machine. What will come up is a recalibration screen. You will see the numbers 1-5 with a little plus sign beside them. Find a small blunt object (I used the tip of a mechanical pencil with the lead in instead of out) and while holding the start/stop button, touch the plus sign beside 1-5 in numerical order. Then, turn the machine off and on again in the normal way. This should recalibrate the screen. Pass it along, people! This is something no one should have to pay for!
