Re: Remote will not work on my reciever

I am wondering if it a preprogrammed remote controller or not. If not, you have to reprogram it.

Why does My RC745m remote control does not function?

Most likely, the remote is not properly paired with the device. The manual for either the AV receiver or for the remote itself should have instructions for how to program the remote codes. If you do that and still have issues, the remote itself could be faulty.

The reciever does no respond when I press the remote control even after changing batteries by new ones. however, the reciever responds well when controlled by pressing the bottons located on the reciever....

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
They also sell replacement remotes.

Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.
or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remotes", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

The remote won;t work

If it's a "Universal" remote and you've changed the batteries, you'll need to reprogram it according to the make/model of the remote. A remote that came with your receiver....

1. Check batteries, they may be dead or dying.
2. Is something blocking the remote receiving window on the receiver?

Remotes use infrared light to transmit to their matching devices and MUST have a line-of-sight path to work properly.

Remote doesn't operate reciever

Hello Fixya customer,

Thank you for your question.

Please determine if the "Audio" button is actually working.... after pressing the audio button, can you still control the DVD, if not then the remote has switched to the Onkyo. Although, this is not 100% conclusive, unless you have a 2nd remote to test the Onkyo with, it provides a sound basis to proceed.

Assuming the remote is transmitting and the IR receiver on the front of the Onkyo is not otherwise blocked, likely faults include the IR receiver, input to the Micro processor, and the Micro processor.

The most probable fault is the IR receiver.

Thank you for using Fixya, and if I can help you further, please let me know.

Does your reciever use a remote control?

If so, you should be aware that on many recievers and surround amplifiers some of the functions may only be accessible via the remote control (the best way to learn about it is to consult the user manual).

I have a Pioneer VSA-730 surround amplifier and the only way i can change the mix levels for surround/sub/center speakers is by a remote control. My friend had the same problem and, after reading the manual, he discovered that he actually needs to use the remote control to access all functions of the amplifier.

Good luck and best regards

I'm having trouble finding a remote control that works for a durabrand ht-395 home theater system. I found one but it's $40.00 and that is very expensive for a remote control. Is there something else that...

Although any universal remote will work if your reciever isn't really old, it is always impossible to tell how well they will work or what functions will work. Although a home theatre receiver doesn't have any advanced functions.

The safest thing is always to contact the manufacturer and see if you can get a replacement remote. This is very expensive and not always possible, but it guarantees full functionality.
The next step would be to buy a really cheap universal remote and see if it works, which it should for the home theatre. I would guess you only need power, volume, and perhaps function changing right? If so, a cheap one should work. If that doesn't work, then you are pretty much confined to buying a really expensive one with more functional control in the hopes it will work, but you never can tell until you try it unfortunately. I have an RCA home theatre receiver that is quite old and it's a good thing i still have my remote, because none of my many universal remotes that I have work with it....

Just a thought, but maybe even the new batteries aren't making good contact (you have replaced the batteries, right?).

Remove the batteries, using a cotton swab and alchohol, clean the contacts in the remote. Then install fresh batteries.

If that does not remedy the problem, you may be able to locate a used remote for your model. Do a google search for remote control resellers, or check a popular auction site.

Avr 1804 denon 7.1 reciver

Did you check the Audio-Video slider button in the middle of the remote? It needs to be on Audio, else the remote sends video channel number signals when you press the numbers.
