Re: remote wont work

Remote controls does not use laser diode. the IR diodes in remote control normally do not die as the voltage from the battery is too low (3.= volts) Your remote control is programmable, the code must have been erased what the battery wa replaced. You must again enter the code for the TV model that you are using. If you do not have the manual, its a problem.

On tv 2 the remote controls the volume and power but will not change channels or do anything else. went to system info in tv 1, pressed sat and power. This did not help. Batteries are new.

Hey, Jane!

I can definitely help you with this. Go to the System Info screen like before, but on the TV2 remote press the 'Record button and see if the number in 'Secondary Remote Address' changes. If it doesn't, let me know here, and I will assist you in programming it!
