Do you have access to the manual?

On some DVD players you can turn off the remote either on the settings menu screen or by directly pressing a series of buttons on the remote itself.

I hope this solution is helpful. Please remember to rate this solution.

First we need to know if the remote is working. Heres the "secret" way to check a remote. Use a cell phone w/camera.

  • Set the cell phone to camera
  • while watching the camera screen and a known good remote, aim the remote at the lens and press a button (volume works well) on the remote (not a device button ie; sat,tv,vcr,etc). You should see lights turn on/flash. Now you know your camera can detect IR light.
  • Do the same again with the remote in question. If there is no IR light output, the remote is the problem. replace the batteries, ensure good battery contact, retest the remote.
If the remote is working then the problem is in the unit.

Let me know what you find.

Neat trick, huh? Please take the time to rate this.

I changed the batteries in my rca remote and now the indicator light will not turn off and the remote does not work


The new batteries may have been installed incorrectly. Check the polarity marking inside the battery compartment.

Remote control for vmb070 does not work


There should be a clear indication on your remote where the battery compartment is. Usually there is a slideoff cover that has to be removed. Some remotes have covers that are difficult to remove. Once you have the compartment open, you can remove the batteries. Check for signs of corrosion inside the compartment and clean it before installing new batteries. Be sure to observe proper polarity when installing new batteries

Remote doesn't work even with new batteries


make sure the remote batteries are in the correct + and - way. It could also be that the remote is broken. If nothing comes on when you press the power button and the tv doesn't respond, then the remote is broken and you should buy another one.

Remote does not work unless I am in the garage. Outside the door it will not work.


hello emar... check to be sure that the little wire antenna is hanging down from the back of the garage door opener motor. Then check it. If it still won't work from outside, install new batteries.

If that doesn't do it, remove the new batteries and use the eraser end of a common pencil to clean the battery contacts inside the remote. then reinstall the new batteries and try it again.

Remote control rmt b101a stopped working, changed batteries, same thing; did reset by pressing power, TV i/o and vol- simultaneously, still not working. Help!


Hi,

Make sure that the Remote is operating in a range of 3 to 10 feet away from the unit.
Point the Remote directly towards the Remote Sensor of the Device.
Remove any obstacles that may be in the path of Remote and the Sensor.
Make sure that no interference is blocking the Remote to operate normally. Do not expose directly to Sunlight, bright florescent lights etc.
Try resetting the Remote by removing the batteries from the Remote control, press every button twice, and then re-install the batteries after 1 minute.
Make sure that none of the buttons on the Remote control is jammed.
Install fresh alkaline batteries in the Remote, do not use rechargeable batteries.
Make sure that the batteries are inserted by matching the polarity (+ & -).
Try resetting the Blu-ray Disc Player with which you're using the Remote.
If the issue persists, after all the possible troubleshooting steps, service may be required.

Thanks for using FixYa

Won't change channels. Batteries are fine.


The remote does not operate your component?
  • You must put the remote in the correct mode by pressing the corresponding component key (TV, VCR•DVD, SAT·CBL) so the remote knows which
    component you want to operate.
  • Remove any obstacles between the remote and the component. Make sure to aim the remote at the IR sensor on the component.
  • Make sure the batteries are fresh and are properly installed. (See Battery Installation on page 3 of the User Manual). Replace the batteries with two new AAA batteries, if necessary. Reprogramming may be required.
  • Reset the remote. Remove the batteries, then press and hold the number 1 key on the remote for several seconds to reset the microprocessor inside the remote. Release the number 1 key, reinstall the batteries, and press the ON·OFF key. If the LED indicator light turns on, reprogram the remote and try again. If it doesn't light up, replace the batteries with new ones.

I hope this help to solve it (remember to rate this answer) Good luck,
