Question about Audio Players & Recorders

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.

Our remote was working this evening and just quit working as far as changing channel, turning on or off, volume control, etc.


Hi,
Sometimes, a corruption on the remote can cause it to stop controlling devices. When this happens, usually all that is needed is a firmware update. The following steps will assist you with this.
1. Launch the Harmony software and log in to your account. 2. Connect your remote. 3, Click "Downloads" at the top of the screen. 4. Click "Firmware." 5. Once the firmware is done updating, click "Update Remote."
Hope this helps :)

"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!

If not, it's time to call 1-800-Remotes or use this website to order a new remote.

I tried downloading the software for the Harmony 300i remote but it is not recognizing and connecting the remote through the usb to the computer. What should I do?


What you need to do is make sure the batteries are in correctly, go to http://myharmony.com in Firefox or IE8, and click the button that says "set up my remote" in the middle/left area of the screen. The website will show ask you to log in and then show a load screen. This is when it will ask you to plug in the remote. The whole process from here on out is done from your browser. Its actually quite easy, I just set up one of these remotes yesterday and it works great.

I bought an emerson hdtv and the remote was stolen. Are the codes known for the One for All that would work for the 32 " Emerson hdtv?


The emerson codes are : 0178 , 0179, 0038, 0177, 0280, 0154, 0236, 0463, 0180, 0282. If this doesn't work with your new remote there is always the way that I have done it in the past and that is to use the find the code function on your new remote. It is a pain but can be done and is quite effective. Each remote is slightly different, but for the most part you would hit the set up botton and hold it in until it starts flashing then hit the T.V. Button and then hit the first code it tells you to hit and then hit the power switch if it doesn't turn off your T.V. then you hit the increment button up, (this is different for each remote so it is important to follow the instruction manual on this part) You bassically keep hitting the incriment button until your code comes up and then it will turn off your t.v.! Then your done. Note: It may take up to 400 pushes of the increment button, but it will work.

Programming my universal remote


Hi, It takes just a few steps to program an RCA Universal Remote Control using the Automatic Code Search method. While there may be some trial and error, the pleasure of getting rid of several extra remote controls will far outweigh the hassle in getting it programmed. Instructions Steps 1. Turn on the component you want to program. 2. TwoPress and release the component button on your remote that corresponds to the component (TV, VCR, etc.) you want the remote to operate. The illuminated ON-OFF button will turn on and remain on. 3. ThreePress both the component and the ON-OFF buttons. The illuminated ON-OFF button will turn off, and then will come back on. 4. FourRelease both buttons after the ON-OFF button turns back on. The button should remain illuminated. 5. FivePress and release the PLAY button. If the component does not respond after five seconds, continue to press the PLAY button every five seconds until the component turns off. 6. SixPress and release the REVERSE button when the component turns off, then wait to see if the component turns on again. 7. SevenPress and release the STOP button to save the new code. more help http://157.254.235.130/public/RCR430.pdf all the best sreejith
