Question about Panasonic Viera TH-42PZ80U Plasma TV

Remote will not work

Batteries are fine. Has worked before, suddenly stopped working. Neither the remote that came with the set nor the remote from the cable which previously was working for mute/volume/power of the TV are now working.

    Sensor came on again in late January, worked fine but now it's not working again. Frustrating on-and-off problem.

Have the remotes which are infrared tested but seems unlikely both are bad, either the set has a lockout feature for the remote or maybe the receiver in the set is bad---get the remote as close to the receiver as possible to see if it works that way at all.

SOURCE: Can't change volume.

i'm having the same problem. i don't think it is the remote control as the volume/channel buttons on the front of the TV don't work either.

Hi marc_uhrey,
Can you turn off the unit with its power switch in the front panel of the tv or not?

Put in new batteries or check that the battery contact points inside the remote are free of rust or acid build-up from leaking batteries.

My Humax Foxsat is just out of guarantee & the remote has suddenly stopped working. We have changed the remote batteries & it is lighting up but doesn't interact with the foxsat box. The box works...


If you still have the owners manual i would recommend looking for the section on how to program the remote to the receiver. If the remote works with other accessories that would probably be it if not you can find universal remotes pretty cheap.

Remote control doesn't work


The only thing that comes to mind is somehow the remote became unprogrammed. This happens with some factory remotes, if you reset the code for the remote it may start working again.

There are other times (both of these Ive had experience with) when the remote will just stop working due to a defect.

Post back for any further help, thank you for stopping by Fixya!

Remote key fob suddenly stopped work


Check out page 57 of the manual:

If that doesn't work, it sounds like a trip to the dealer.

My Sharp Remote Control Is Suddenly Stop Working


Ok I just dealt with the Sharp customer support for this problem.

1) You need to unplug the TV for 1 full minute and remove the batteries from your remote aswell (this will reset the system)
2) Hold the power button on the remote for 30 seconds with the batteries still out of the remote and the TV still unplugged
3) After the 30 seconds replace batteries then press every button on the remote beginning with the power button in order from left to right and top to bottom (same way you read)
4) Then plug your tv back in and try the remote again.... and the remote and TV should be back in sync.

Remote Control Problem


take the batteries out of the Sharp remote press and hold the POWER button on the top of the remote for 5 seconds. Put batteries back in. Make sure that function is set to TV. Should work - if not call Sharp. If you are inside the original manufacturer warranty they will replace remote

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.
