Re: remote on second t.v. not working
Lawrence, you have probably got a remote that needs the address changed. Go to the TV1 location and press menu-menu pn the TV1 remote. This will take you to the system info screen. Now take the TV2 remote and press and hold the SAT button on the top left of the remote until all buttons across the top light up. Now choose and key in a two digit number that is between 1-16 but is different from the number for the TV1 address and press the pound button. The SATbutton will flash three times. Now press the record button until the remote address for TV2 changes to the number you keyed in. Once this occurs you can cancel out of the menu screen at the TV2 location and go to TV2 and verify functionality. If this still has not resolved the issue try the remote for TV2 at the receiver location. If you have sucess here you will need to move the UHF antenna closer to TV2. If you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

When the SAT button blinks repeatedly, or the buttons do a dance (Sat & DVD, TV & AUX, repeat) it means you need new batteries. Replace all four AAA batteries, ensure they are all four aligned the same way, and then hit SAT. Your remote should return to its normal function. If you leave the batteries out for too long, the remote will forget how to operate the TV and receiver, so be sure to have all four new batteries ready before you remove the old ones.
clean the remote with an alcoholic solvent then try to look for any loose joint mostly near the LED transmeter then use your mobile phone camera to check whether light is visible when you press the remote buttons while directing it to the camera
Should be a button on your remote labeled input or source. If it does not it could have buttons with icons/lettering on them with a tv or spelled out tv, HDMI, input 1...2...etc. If none of these apply it can be done by hitting the Menu button, going to the video section and select input you would like. This can also be done with the menu button on your tv.
You will need the direction manual and or code book for that remote. You may be able to find a copy of it online if you do not have it. Every remote has it's own group of codes for each television manufacturer. So With the instructions it will tell you how to set the remote to accept a code for each device. This is usually a matter of selecting the device by pressing the device button and holding for a few seconds or pressing device button and then the code set buttton or finally holding the device button and another button at the same time for a few seconds. It looks like a Directv remote from the picture so you can find the instructions for them at the Directv websight.
Once you set the remote for accepting a code you then enter a series of numbers usually some set of 3 to 5 numbers and then test whether the power and other functions work. These numbers are of course listed in the instructions code section. You may need to hit the device button again to lock in the correct code. Of course if the first code you try does not work you repeat the preperation for accepting codes and then try with the next code that is listed for your tv manufacturer. If none work you may be able to follow instructions for random code search or if your remote is older than the TV it may not have the code for your TV and in that case it simply will not be able to control the TV.
You have turned on SAP sound. Switch your MTS TV sound back to main or standard or Stereo. OK is used to choose your selection once you 'highlight' it with the arrow keys. If you are having menu issues, unplug the TV for ten seconds, plug it back in and try the menu again. (you may have to reset your channels)
Does it work from wall button? Hit learn button for 10 seconds. Hit again for 1 second and code keypad.Opener lights should blink 2x. Hit learn again for a second and hit button on a remote (Any button you chose). Again, lights should blink. Now should work. Repeat for any other remotes.
I had the same problem and I found out that the philips universal remote works! What you will do is follow the instructions in the book and your channel will change to the same channel. The instructions are: Hold the select button for about three seconds and click the TV button. After this you will hit the channel button until the channel on the TV appears in the upper right hand corner. After this you will hold the mute button for about 3 seconds and the release. This should work! Hope this helps you out!!!
Slide top button on remote to tv. Press and hold mute and select button until the green light on the remote blinks twice. Then press 991. Then press 1. Then press the tv power button once. If the tv doesn't respond hit the channel up button on the remote. If that works press select to store the code and slide the switch back to the left. If it doesn't work keep hitting channel up until it does. It can take up to 30 minutes but it works.
What I did to program. Hit "tv" and then hold down "code search" until it turns the light on. Then hit the on/off button until it turns off the tv......it took at least 20 times for me. Then hold down the "tv" button until it starts blinking. Then hit "ok". Mine then worked!
I'm not sure what type of TV you are using,, but most all Large Screens have a reset button someplace. You should be able to reset the TV and fix the problem. Its not the remote, making the image appear, but a command from it was misinterpeted. Sometimes turning the set off will work, but most often it needs to be reset.
EXCEPTION... if you are using a cable box. Disconnect it from power, wait 1 minute and then see if the problem exists. If the cable box is on even with the DVD you may still have this issue. Please reset the cable, and if that doesn't work, reset the TV.
