Question about Home Theater Systems

1 Answer

The Remote control just up and quit working.

The remote just quit working in the middle of the evening, it was working great until, bam, done. I have changed the batteries twice and it still does not work. The system still works fine I just have to turn it on and off manually, control the volume manually. It not that I can't do everything manually, it's justa a hassle when that volume changes between the television shows and the commericals.
I have a "Durabrand" Motel HT-3915 Home Theater System, serial number - 4140216764.
I would like to know if I can get a replacement.
I tried calling your toll free number on the back page of the operators manual and I got some marketing service. I actually called that number twice. Not sure what is happening with that telephone number.

Thank You

Sounds like the circuit board inside the casing has a solder break. this solder connection was probably connected to the battery post inside the remote. it only takes a solid drop on a hard surface to cause this breakage or, it could be poor manufacturing as well.

"Dead" Remotes Can Be Saved
How to Re-Start Your "Dead" Remote Control
This only takes about a minute and will restart 1 in 3 "Dead" Original Remote Controls. Good Luck!
-----------------------------
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.
Step 5- Try the remote.
Special Note:
If you have a digital camera, camcorder or camera phone you can test the remote to see if it is emitting a signal. Face the remote towards the lens of the digital unit until you can see the front of the remote. Depress any button on the remote. You should see a light (steady, blink or flashing) being emitted from the remote. If you do then the problem might not be the remote but the sensor on the unit.
If it works, Great!

Cannot find code for universal remotes to make Sony DAV-C450 work


To repair your original remote, open the remote and remove the buttons sectio.(normally a solid piece of rubber with the buttons) On the PC board of the remote, clean with a scotchbrite scourer to revive the circuits and make it shiny. Next, clean the rubber button section on the inside with surgical spirits. Replace cover and fit new batteries.

If your remote worked everything for a few weeks and then quit, and you are sure the codes are correct, take the remote back under the 1 year replacement warranty and exchange it. It is defective.

Remote Control


From GUEST: I found this solution in the manual and will perform this task again to see if I can get the tv will be re-recognized again. Give this a try, too.


Remote will not turn on or shut off the TV.
• You must program the converter box remote in order to control your TV power button.
• To program the remote control:
    1. Determine if the TV is a model that can be controlled by the remote control. See "Controllable TV brands" on page 17 in the manual.
    2. Turn on the TV.
    3. While you press and hold TV POWER on the remote control, press CH ^ or CH v one or more times until the TV turns off. Each time you press one of these buttons, the remote control sends a manufacturer code (between 1 and 45) to the TV.

No remote controll


A universal remote will work the simple commands like volume and channels, but it will not work the menu and settings for the set. You can get a original from LG for about 80 bucks or so, or you can go to http://www.remotes.com and enter your model and order online at a cost of 52.00 + shipping or call 1-800-remotes. These are exact replacement remotes. Just as good as the original.. Good Luck
