Re: remote stopped working....

The buttons on most remotes are in fact a silicone rubber sheet with a conductive blob in the centre of the buttons that makes with the printed circuit board. Dismantle the remote with care - a small screw near the battery compartment and the 2 halves of the shell snapped together.A thin blade to prize it apart starting near the battery end. Lift the rubber sheet of buttons and gently wipe the underside with a piece cotton wool soaked in detergent water and squeezed dry- or if you have them a 'Moist Wipe Tissue' Do the same with the circuit board. Make sure they are absolutely dry before re assembly. Before you re assemble you will see the underside of the circuit board- plain plastic no circuits probably rests on pillars in the bottom shell. A thin piece of card may improve the contact between board and button sheet.

My GE Universal Remote stopped working. I tried new batteries and reprogramming but cannot get the indicator light to stay on after I hit "TV"; therefore, I cannot input the code.

Try removing the new batteries and pressing all the buttons then reinstall the batteries and try again. Sometimes remotes get hung up due to a stuck button

Goog day. I have a Samsung LE40A559 LCD TV and about a week ago it stopped responding to the remote. Remote itself is working as when the TV is off and I push buttons on the remote the blue light on TV...

The flashing blue light shows that the TV is receiving I.R. from the remote but doesn't mean that the signal being received is recognized by the Samsung. If you have a "universal" remote then your TV code may need to be re-entered/reprogrammed...changing batteries in a "universal" will usually require it to be reprogrammed.

Also...because of the remotes construction (rubber membranes with carbon dots that short across PC traces) I've seen certain buttons stop working altogether.

My remote control simply stopped working altogether. I changed batteries 3 times(and verified the batteries were good). The dvd/vcr controls on the player itself function properly. I cleaned the remote...

If it is a universal remote not branded to the tv and the batteries went dead or are out for too long then the remote lost the codes and needs to be reprogramed!

Volume and mute buttons suddenly stopped working

Try changing the batteries. Most times the "tivo" buttons will work but the "tv" buttons will stop working when the batteries are low.

If you have done that, go back into settings and program the remote again for your tv, then give it a shot.
