Question about TV Receivers & DVRs

1 Answer

Remote not working prorerly and freezing.

The Remote Control buttons would only work sometimes.

Then it just froze, and you could not do anything on the Remote or the Set Box. Could not even turn it off on the Set Box. Had to turn the power off at the wall, waited for a short while and turned it back on.

Turned on OK, but still with the same problem of poor control on Remote.

    Thank You b_stro804 for your prompt reply.



    I have already changed the batteries in the remote to better batteries.



    We received the Set Box for Christmas, and have had nothing but trouble since attaching it to the TV.



    It has also had another problem..........



    When watching the TV, all of a sudden it just stopped working, went to a blue screen.



    We just left it like that, did not press any buttons, and by itself it just went and scanned for stations, so now we have double up of all of the stations.



    But the channel selection is better on the remote now.



    Strange!!!!!



    Cheers

Doesn't receive signal from remote control


if it works intermittenly then the remote dosent need reprogrammed. SOoooo....

line of site comes to mind. your box needs to see what your remote shoots out. sometimes something ends up in front of the reciever spot on the cable box (FYI: a flashlight at the right angle can help find the sweet spot on most devices)

maybe the dvr is going bad watch EVERYTHING you want to see one last time and have it swapped (like death, you can't take anything with you)

good luck (I hope its just a line of sight problem)

My dvr freezes. i have picture and sound but unable to change the channel or anything dealing with the dvr. i have to manually push the system info button on the box then select done with the remote. ...


Believe it or not, this could be a simple battery problem in your remote. When my battery is low in my remote, some buttons will work and some not. I'd try replacing the batteries in the remote first. If that doesn't work, I would guess that you need a new remote. Sounds like your DVR works fine manually, so chances are that's not the problem.
Hope this helps.

I have a Motorola DCT6416 PVR. Dog layed on remote and de-programmed. I can't find the program code to fix my remote control.


are you sure its not something simple like the remote is in the wrong mode. what lights up on the remote when you push buttons?

what isn't working? the cable box not responding? the tv not responding? nothing?

RCN's motorola code is 002 (actually i think the new remotes may be different), TV code could be anything.

FYI: battery cover on remote sometimes has directions for code search

hope something here helped

I have dish network and a new rca tv with dvd the


You can power scan for the code.
Turn ON the electronic device you want to program the remote to control.
Press the Mode button( sat,tv,dvd,aux) on the remote until the appropriate mode light is flashing.

Press the Power button. The mode light will stop flashing and stay lit.
Press the Up or Down arrow button to set the remote to the next code. The Down arrow button scans backward and the Up arrow button scans forward.
When the correct code is reached, the device (whether a TV, VCR, or other) will turn off.

Press the pound key button to store the code in the remote control memory. If the code is valid for your remote, the mode light will blink 3 times.
Turn the device back ON by pressing the Power button.
Press sat mode key once you power back on the tv to be able to operate the receiver box.
Try some other functions to make sure you have the correct code. Occasionally the Power button may work when others do not.
If the other buttons work you are finished.

.
If the other buttons do not work, repeat the previous steps. The scan will resume from the last code stored.
The mode light will flash rapidly when the scan has returned to the starting point and all codes have been tested for that mode. The remote control may not control some device models.

Freezes; sometimes resets by itself?


Most likely, it's your hard drive. It can be replaced, so you don't have to junk the unit.

LG LST-5100P set top box. Several times a day have


cap-grant, my friend has the same problem with set top box. When I phone maker I was told it is due to poor and weak signal. You must have 80% signal strength to maintain good picture. When signal strength dropped picture would freeze and had to be turned off at the power point to restart as nothing would work. So I guess what my experience says is you may need better aerial to boost signal and prevent dropout Leonard210
