Remote will not work on tv

We put new batteries in, & no response. All I can see on the tv is total remote control. It is about 10 yrs. old, but the remote has always worked on it, & the tv still works.

1 replace the old batteries use new ones alkalines with the same mark and polarities.
2) clean the contacts batteries with c. cleaner.
3) open the remote control, and clean the keypads from dirty, oxide, corrosion, with c. cleaner.
4 Proceed again, if the problem persist, you must go to the repair shop TV or replace by new ones.
God bless you

We've lost our manual for the TV. The remote control has died and we are unable to set the universal remote control without the code. It is a Sharp LC-325B24U.

I am a old tech and have done this many times. take the old remote apart and use a tooth brush and Clean all of it with dish washing liquid and water.
just enough soap to sud. and then clean with alcohol strait vodka if you don't have denatured.
then put over a air vent for 24 to 48 hrs. put new battery's in it and you should be back up and running
it must be totally Dry before you put battery's in it.

My remote control is not responding. I even put new batteries in it, but there is no response. I even put the remote closer to the tv and still doesn't work. What happen to my remote control.

If the old batteries were dead for a while before you replaced them (or you took too long to switch them), your remote has probably lost the codes for your devices. You will need to program the remote codes again before it works.

If not, your remote is probably faulty - possibly the infra-red (IR) transmitter. You can use a video camera to check transmitters. The flashes are invisible to the naked eye, but can be seen through the view finder on a video camera.

Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks!

Uno.comi have a robolaser level rbo1001 that dosnt work. put in all new batterys. worked great for 10-11 yrs now nothing. light or rotation.b

I have a Porta-Cable,I found that the clicker's battery always had a bad connection so I put packing around it and it has worked so far. I've also found that the first time moisture hit the thing the spread lazor lost it's power. If yours worked for 10 years, then it already paid for itself.

TV does not detect remote control.

Remote control receiving sensor circuit problem in the TV. Mostly due to degradation of the sensor over a period of time.

Go close to the TV and see whether you get a response. If it responds try determining the distance back wards. If the remote works up to certain distance, the problem is weak sensor (TV).

If totally not operative it is sensor circuit problem. It could be sensor or it's associated parts.

Remote not working

Sometimes dust is accumulated in tv remote receiver sensor. This will give you the malfunction. Because your statement says TV is about 8 yrs old. Better solution is make one general service. If you have remote checker check the TV original remote working or not. We say universal remote, sometimes even technical person does not know how to use. Because in each and every brand and model there is a secret code to initiate the version. So better make one general service and check in your original remote it is working.
