Re: Remote control will not work new battery installed

I had this problem too and fixed it. It wasn't the remote control but the sensor on the actual unit itself. There was a wire blocking the senor. To fix it I moved the wire so it ran underneath the dvd tray instead of running along the front of the unit.

How do i fix a Sinotec DVD Hi-fi where the remote wont connect with the Hi-Fi?

troubleshooting a remote control device to see whether it is working or functional is easy to carry out.
1. get hold of your mobile handset and switch the camera mode on.
2. with the batteries installed in your remote control device, point the small lens at the top to the camera and view through your mobile handset.
note: remember to press any button on your remote control device at the same time.

1. you ought to be able to see or sight a bright light at the top of your remote control device. this is an indication the remote control device is okay.
2. where no bright light is sighted, you need to replace the remote controller.

DO NOT point the remote control device to your eyes or stare at the lens on top. Infra red is invisible and can cause damage to your eyes please

Hyundai dvd model hy-03s remote not functioning

first thing is the obvious, make sure you have brand new batteries installed. If you have a camcorder or digital camera, point it at the remote control and push record, while recording, press some of the buttons on the remote. the camera will record the red light if the remote is working (camcorders and digital cameras can see this light even though people can't) to do this with your digital camera, have somene push and hold one of the remote control buttons while you take a photo, the red ligth should show up in the photo. If you see no red light then you have a bad remote control and will need to send for one or get one ordered through the store, one other option is to buy a universal remote control and try getting that to work, good luck

Remote control has stopped working

If you have replaced the batteries with KNOWN GOOD ones, observed the proper polarity when re-installing the batteries AND made sure the remote is in DVD "mode" (if it is a multi-remote) when trying to use it, the remote is bad. Replace the remote.

Samsung DVD r135 no reaction using remote control but recorder reacts on remote control from Samsung TV, batteries check. Disconnect the recorder from the power over night no change, still own remote...

Try this. Remove the batteries from the recorder's remote control and hold down the POWER button on it for 30 seconds. Then replace the batteries with fresh ones. It should work fine after that.
If not, the remote control may be defective.
You can purchase a new remote control at

Remote control will not work new battery installed I have a GPX and the remote control does not work. I have changed batteries and made sure the wires are not running in front of the DVD player

First we need to know if the remote is working. Heres the "secret" way to check a remote. Use a cell phone w/camera.

  • Set the cell phone to camera
  • while watching the camera screen and a known good remote, aim the remote at the lens and press a button (volume works well) on the remote (not a device button ie; sat,tv,vcr,etc). You should see lights turn on/flash. Now you know your camera can detect IR light.
  • Do the same again with the remote in question. If there is no IR light output, the remote is the problem. replace the batteries, ensure good battery contact, retest the remote.
If the remote is working then the problem is in the unit.

Let me know what you find.

Neat trick, huh? Please take the time to rate this.
