Single buttons not working is rare but not unheard of .

Get the remote tested so you know, most shops have a tester==point remote at it and press any button and if good tester reacts.

Many digital cameras in a very dark room will react in same way when remote pointed and push buttons with a tiny flash of light on the camera display screen.

This tells you if any are not sending.

Someone else just had a similar question and I dug out a old tip of mine, here is the link and its on this site with how to correct if those buttons are not working.

I HAVE THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM.

Confirmed with Samsung tech support. Problem is with remote. to fix, simple take the batteries out of the remote. Press and hold the UP Volume button for 2 Mintues (no cheating, it has to be at least 2 minutes), this Reset's the Remote Control. Put the batteries back in. Bob's your uncle. all fixed.

I have a Proscan pledv2488a. There is a disk in the DVD player, but I cannot find a way to eject it. There appears to be no eject button on the remote. What can be done?


Do you have the original remote or a universal remote? On the original remote, the Eject button is also the Favorites (FAV) button. It's just below the Volume - section of the Volume toggle on the left side of the remote. The button has an upwards arrow above a line on it. You probably need to set the source to DVD for the Eject button to work properly. (If the source is TV, the button will add or delete the current channel to the Favorites list.) You can cycle through the input source options by pressing the Source button on the TV or the remote. On the TV, the Source button is between the Power and Menu buttons. On the remote, the Source button is on the right hand side above the Up arrow key.

The manual for the PLEDV2488A is available from Proscan at the manufacturer's site: http://www.proscanvideo.com/product/PLEDV2488A . Click on the Downloads tab. The direct link is http://legacy.curtisint.com/html/CustService/Manuals/PRO_PLEDV2488A_EN.pdf . Page 8 describes the remote buttons.

I hope this helps.

Buttons stopped working


If there is a tv button on the remote, try pressing that..

Chances are its damaged and you might need to order a new one from Hitachi or possibly use a universal.. With remotes there really isnt much you can do when they stop functioning.

No sound


  • 1 Make sure that your audio cables are plugged in properly to the correct ports if your audio is distorted or noisy. Every cable should be inserted completely. If you still encounter bad audio, replace the cable and then attempt to use a different device with the old cable. This will help you pinpoint the source of the bad audio problem.
  • 2 Use the "Volume up" button on the remote or TV buttons panel to turn up the TV audio volume if the volume is quiet. If the volume is still quiet, check to see if your audio source device has volume settings. If it does, turn the up the volume on your device (see your device documentation if you need help with this).
  • 3 Press the "Mute" button on your remote control to disable the mute function if you can't hear any audio. Once disabled, press and hold the "Volume up" button on your remote control to turn up the volume. If there is still no audio, press the "Menu" button on your remote control, select the "Audio" menu, and ensure that the "TV Speakers" are set to "On." If you are still not having any luck and are using the built-in TV tuner, open "MTS Audio" inside the "Tuner" menu and make sure it is set to "Stereo/English." If there is still no audio, verify that all your audio cables (including the antenna cable if you are using one) are plugged securely into the proper ports on your TV and audio source device (if applicable). If you are using an antenna, reposition it to a clear, open area; preferably near a window. If your audio source device has audio settings, check to make sure they are set the way they should be (see device documentation).

    What are u using for a signal source? Cable, Satellite, Over the air? My best guess is that you hit a wrong button such as the "source" button and the remote doesn't know what device you are wanting to opperate. Press volume up then down and see what light lights up?
    If it is other than "TV" then you probably have the wrong device selected... Hope this helps... Sincerely HDTV GURU JAY

    ILO'26HD got stuck, its freezed


    Yes, Walmart sells ILO, I would not buy that brand. Anyway I am not familiar with the model of the tv, but it should have buttons on the front bottom or right side of the tv so you can change the source and change the volume. So my questions, does anything on the remote work? Do the buttons on the tv work? The DirectTV should not be interfering. It was working fine, correct?

    Mintex 37 inch wide screen. remote is working however cannot change channel, input source or volum. only turns tv off. The buttone on tv doesnot work connot change input source or volume


    Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.
