How do you prove a remote control is transmitting?

I have a remote control car that is not working. Both batteries are fully charged and visually does'nt appear to be any damage so I would like to find out if the transmitter is sending a signal.

Take a digital camera (has to have a screen on it) and zoom in on the end of the antennae. if you look REALLY close, you can see tiny radio waves coming from the end. If you dont see any then you will have to go to a store like WAL-MART and get a new remote.

One walkie not transmitting

Swap batteries between the radios and see if the problem moves to the other radio.

If your charger does not light up, it is not working. So your battery may not be getting fully charged. The first sign of a poorly charged, or bad battery is no transmit.

If these do not solve the problem, and your settings are identical, you may have a faulty radio. Double check your settings, and take them back to their simpliest form, shut off any special features and make your PL code be off or zero. Then try the radios, if they still don't work, you have one radio which is bad.

best regards.

How do you charge your wii console

The Nintendo Wii is an innovative video game system and much like other video game systems within the Wii's generation, the controllers are all wireless. Because of the wireless technology, the controls must function on batteries in order to operate. Instead of having the game pause in the middle of the action, there are plenty of methods you can test to make sure your Wii remotes are fully charged.

  • Charge you're the batteries to your Wii remote by opening the back clip and pulling out both AA batteries. If the batteries are the standard set that came with the Wii, you should upgrade them to rechargeable batteries to save time, money, and garbage waste.

  • 2

    Let the batteries charge for as long as the charger says. In most cases a full charge could take 6 to 12 hours, but fast chargers can fully charge batteries for an hour. Check the charger's manual detailed times.

  • 3

    Use a Wii Charging station for easier charging access. These stations avoid the process of opening and closing the Wii remote every time you need to charge the batteries and they work as a Wii remote stand as well.

  • 4

    Place the batteries back into the Wii remote once the charging has completed. With both the charging stations and rechargeable batteries, lights should indicate when the charging has completed.

  • 5

    Power up the Wii and press any button on the Wii Remote in order to turn it on and connect with the Wii.

  • 6

    Press the "Home" button the Wii Remote control. This button is in the center of the controller and features a small picture of a house on it. A pop-up menu will appear over the screen.

  • 7

    Look at the menu and find your controller number. Right next to the assigned number is a remote battery meter. It will feature 1 through 3 bars to indicate battery level. If it has 3 bars, then the Wii remote is fully charged and ready for use. If it has any less bars then the remote can be used, but is not fully charged. If the battery meter is in red, the remote will shut off soon because there is not enough battery power.

    Tv not taking remote signal

    First check if the remote works. This can be done by using a digital camera or cell phone camera. Point the remote at the camera lens and start pressing buttons on the remote. If you see a blinking light on the LCD preview screen of the camera, then you know the remote is transmitting.

    If the remote is not transmitting, replace the batteries. If this still does not work, you should get a new remote.

    If the remote is properly transmitting, then the issue is going to be with the TV. It depends on the type of TV you have but usually is either the IR sensor board or the main board which are in charge of receiving and decoding the signal from the remote.

    Harmony 880 will not turn any components on

    First, check your battery indicator (make sure it's fully charged).  Second, dock your remote with the USB cable and reprogram the remote.  It's possible you disconnected before the programming was properly transmitted to your remote.  Finally, if things don't work, use the HELP button on the remote.  It should talk you through a procedure to fix your problem.
