    I have the same problem, but it isn't just the remote, the channel up/down buttons on the TV itself don't work either. The sound on the channel I'm on drops whenever I try to change channels this way.

On mx900 genesis universal remote the up down arrows to change channels will not work - cannot get guide to display -cannot change channels using#key pad - volume up down work fine suggestions?


Incorrect code. Try different programming codes for one that operates your TV correctly. Note not all universal remotes will work all features of a tv. Sometimes all you can get (especially on lower end remotes) is power and volume

Won't channel up and down, stuck in input mode


Good morning Cheri
try restarting the tv, just disconnect all electricity for 30-60 sec.
connect again. If that does not work, Try set- up on the menu, if you get the apparatus to obey you and leave the input mode.
If that does not work I always restart the router and "exchange"box,
enjoy your day

My television set is stuck on one channel....the audio changes with the channel but the picture stays blurred on one channel...whats wrong with it?


Lots of possibilities. If you are using the remote, try also using buttons on the TV to change channels. If TV buttons work, the remote is broken or perhaps try changing batteries and cleaning battery contacts on the remote. If neither work, lots of other things to try. You may need to set preselect channels, so your TV thinks there is only one channel out there until you do. If you are on a cable box you just need channel 3 and change channels on the cable box. I can't tell what you mean by "audio changes with the channel" ... if you mean that when you try to advance channels, it increases volume and moving down in channels lowers volume that would be strange -- if you are using a programable remote it might not be set correctly (try another programming code). The "blurred" picture is probably symptomatic of having the set on the wrong channel, and if you could set channel it might clear up ... I'd start with getting channels to change. If you need more help, give the brand and model of TV, say if you are using a remote (original or programable), and what the 'audio changes' comment means in more detail. Probably worst case is that your tuner circuit is fried, but don't assume that without more diagnostic.

I can change channels by entering the actual channel number on the keypad, but the channel up and down buttons don't work


The up/down button is worn out (guys do this, since we love to channel surf). Keep the original
remote that came with the TV (they're invaluable), but buy a cheap universal replacement remote
(I got my last one at Dollar General for $8), program it for your TV, and surf with that - you'll
get power ON/OFF, channel up/down, and volume control from any universal remote.

My samsung le32r74bdx remote control wont change channels and cant turn volume on tv up or down


You can verify that the remote is working. Get a digital camera with a LCD display.
Aim the remote at the camera lens and press the volume and channel buttons. If you do not see
a flash through the camera the remote is bad or the batteries are dead.
If you know someone with any samsung hdtv remote, you can borrow it and try the volume/channel
to see if the tv remote receiver is good.

Puppy completely destroyed our remote,we have dish network also, in the process of eating remote she changed setting to cable and it needs to be on analog,so therefore all that is on screen is fuzz. Is...


With the other Mintek remote that is still intact first try to change the channel on the smaller Mintek television. Usually the remotes have a . or - in order to accommodate analog or digital channels. So directv is usually channel 3.0/3-0 or channel 60.0/60-0 or sometimes another channel as advised by direct tv. Try pressing 03 first or 60/61/whatever channel you are supposed to be on. If that doesn't work try 3.0/3-1 and then the enter/ok key. Try the channel up and down button as well.
