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.

Toshiba tv 20 yrs. old will not come on when remote control is pushed


It will be very difficult to get the spare parts to this TV as it is over 20 years of age. It will be best to buy a new one, and it will be a wise decision.

in a rare case the problem is at the 5v voltage that goes to the receptor. more rare is the possibility

Not anymore. go to a tv repair shop and look for an older universal or maybe an original. the new ones won't work on this old stuff. however it might be your I.R. receiver failed. but i have seen this quite a bit lately. if it is more than 10 yrs, old there is a problem with some mfg. codes. and nec doesn't make tv's anymore.

Sylvania tv has stopped recognizing commands from remote.


Use some windex on the pickup on the front of the tv. It's a little dark spot, either round or square that picks up the signal from the remote.

Television response.


Try to locate the line of sight sensor on your TV that does not respond to the remote. The lack of response indicates that the sensor on the TV needs to be cleaned. It does not take much (dust, wax, cleaner residue) to block the signal.

Grundig Super Colour TV Serie F 3016 - lack of responce from remote control.


Tell me if there is a battery within this TV set which will require replacement to solve this problem

no there is no battary in tv.

The set works OK otherwise using its own control panel to change channels and its on/off switch to turn it on and off. 

your statements itself says that there is no problem in tv.

in my opinion problem is in  remote only.

please try

No response from remote


Check whether the remote control is working properly or not by using remote checker. Even if it is the universal remote control you have to set the code for the particular model. Otherwise it will not work.

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.

Remotes not working for tv


You have already diagnosed the problem,the remote receiver on the tv is bad,is rare but it happens but before you call for help try unpluging the tv from the wall for 10 minutes and then plug it back in and try it,sometimes this takes care of the problem,if that does not do it you will need the help of a servicer ,your remotes are working but the receiver is not processing the information.If you are familiar with tv service it should be easy to locate the receiver,sometimes is soldered to the chassis and sometimes is part of the push button assembly and conected to the chassis by wires,if is part of the push button is easier to replace,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and ask for help.
