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 moved my drop down TV to another floor and had FIOS add a line so I could hook it up. I can only get channel 3, no picture. I've tried the polaroid remote that came with the TV and also the remote that came with the box I needed to hook in to the FIOS system. Which remote should I be using? Is there a code or something I need to program in. The TV was working fine until I moved it. Thanks for your help! I definitely can't afford to buy a new TV, and FIOS is charging me $140 for installation of the line.

One for all universal remote i am trying to program my seiki television. I lost the original remote and the power button on the television is broken so I cant turn the television on


Always better to buy a genuine replacement. The problem is that if I remember correctly, Seiki don't actually make the television, which is why it never features in the Remote Code Lists. I have just checked three sites.

Sound is pinned at 100% output. Remote nor physical buttons on device are working.


If any of the buttons on the remote or tv work, then try going into the menu and turning the sound down manually.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; to which you want set-up codes; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts. ..
