Tv won't recieve a remote

The remote doesn't work at all. I have also tried programing universal remotes and the Tv doesn't pick them up. When I try and change the channels on the buttons on the tv it changes the inputs and not the channels. What can I do to fix it? Thanks

Greetings!

Chances are that the infra-red receiver in the set has gone bad, since you have tried two different remotes. Having said that, it is always possible that the universal remote doesn't have the correct code in it to operate the set. You can always take the original remote to a shop and have them see if it is puting out infra-red. Your local Radio Shack might even have an I.R. sensor to try it on.

If the I.R. receiver is bad I can't give you an easy fix. Though not difficult to replace, the original part (932215244687) has been discontinued. Your local repair shop probably has one laying around that would work, but may not be eager to sell it to a do-it-yourselfer.

Hope this helps,
Rob

    Sorry, I got interupted and forgot this part. Since the channel buttons on the set are changing the inputs there is a very good chance that there are no channels programed into the sets memory. The front panel of that set has menu controls. Get into the auto-program section of the set up menu and auto-program the set. This should take care of that problem and allow you to change channels on the set itself.



    Good luck!

You have to program the remote control to synchronize with TV. If you wish to get moredetails; codes, three digits, four digits or five digit ones, check this link. Pull up older posts there. Setup code list and setup instructions to some popular model remote controls are given. Select the 'Timeslide' option from the drop-down list by the 'Sidebar' at the display window. It will make search easy.

Remote doesn't work


did you ask the company where you bought it ,why it was refurbished and what the problem was, try a universal remote, you might have to program in the code from the book you recieve when buying it, try all the codes for your make and model or look on the internet for a service depot and ask if they can get you a remote for your model t.v.

My onn universal remote codes doesn't not work on


Common problem with universal remotes, you can try programming the remote with a slightly different model or brand and see if it does better. Mostly, just learn how it works and deal with it; or try out a different remote. My TV remote and DVD player remotes could both act as universal remotes, but the DVD was much better at it, so we used that one.

Universal Remote


are you programming the remotes with the codes for the TV manufacturer, as most Universals have to be programmed to the manufacturers remote codes to function, or Most if not all universals have a scan for the code function, refer to the manuals did theTV originally come with a remote, I am assuming so, if it didn't the TV may not have an IR reciever for the remote to work.
