First off, put in brand new batteries. Not just batteries that are kind of new, i mean BRAND SPANKING NEW batteries right out of the packet.

If you still have a problem:

~hold down the DVD-VCR button-> the red led will stay lit.

~holding down the DVD-VCR button press the number 2 --> the red led will turn off

~Release the DVD-VCR button--> the red led blinks 4 times and turns off.
Hope that helps!

The L.E.D light is staying on the receiver, and I have had tried new batteries in both transmitter and receiver???


It could be that a button is stuck "down" on the remote control.

Push every button on the remote, one at a time, and see if they all bounce back. If you find one that is stuck down, use a tooth pick to help it back to a normal position. 'Hope this helps.

Tip

How to see if your remote control is actually working


For remotes which use an IR connection you can see if they are transmitting using this trick. An IR type of remote will have one or two LED's on the front end. If it doesn't, than it may be an RF type of remote - this tip will not work for those.

Get some electronic device which can view a live image on a screen. A cell phone camera, digital camera, digital video camera, and (I think) even a web-cam will work. If you're using a digital (still) camera, you don't need to take a picture as long as you see a live image on the screen of whatever the camera is pointing at. Take your remote and find the LED on the front end. There may be one or two. (If there's two, one actually isn't an LED, but that's not too important.) Point the front of the remote at the camera (LED's facing the camera), and press buttons. You should see the LED's light up in the live image. While these LED's normally produce light which the human eye can't see, digital image sensors can, and they change this invisible light to light we can see on the screen. (Cool right?) So, if your remote is working then you'll see the LED light up on the display. (To make sure your camera is actually working as I am suggesting here, find a remote which you know does work and try it.)

The LED should light up for every button pressed. If one button doesn't make the LED glow, you may have a bad button - try pressing it firmly. Buttons can wear out. The image of the LED may appear steady or it may pulse or blink on the viewscreen - this is normal.

If the LED doesn't light up, and you know your camera works like this (you've checked a good remote), try new batteries - that solves most problems. Check the battery contacts in the remote - if they're corroded, (white flaky stuff caked on, looks like dried up salt) - you can clean the contacts with a solution of water and baking soda and a Q-Tip. Use a knife to remove any large chunks. Also, some fine sand paper works too. Both the flat contacts and the springs need to be cleaned. Wash any tools (and hands) with soap and water afterwards. Handle corroded batteries as little as possible - or better yet, use gloves.

If you have good batteries and the contacts are clean, and the LED is not lighting up - it's pooched. Try getting a replacement from the manufacturer (call or email/write them), or use a universal remote.

It will not turn on red led light stays on any ideas


Usually if a device is turned off with the remote, you need to turn it back on with the remote. Have you checked the batteries in it?

2.Hold down the "Code Search" or "Setup" button until the LED indicator light turns on.


3.Hit the button for the component that you are programming (TV,DVD VCR, etc.). The LED light should flicker and stay on.

4.Enter the 3-digit or 4-digit code that corresponds to the TV or device that you're operating.The LED light should go off if the code is valid, but will flash if it is not. Try other codes you have.

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.

This and other details can find in the troubleshooting-the-rca-rcr350-universal-remote-control

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