    My remote problem is only with the Trutech PLV31199S1. It is not a universal remote.It came with the TV. Worked for a little while. Changed batteries. Does not work at all now.

    Last response was regarding loose crystal??? Where is this? and possible IR diode burned out??? DOn't know where/how to get to these. Is there any easier solution like maybe a new remote!!

from looking at the remote, it seems to be a universal type. If you go to the above website and find the code for your TV, it may work once you put the code back in. This is quite common for this type of remote. I had to input my code a couple times a year fom the wife pushing the wrong button. Just look on the site for the code for your set and try it. Then you will know if it needs to be repaired or replaced, good luck

Hi, this is a problem with a solder break. Im sure the break is isolated around the actual sensor located on the front side of this remote. you will need to disassemble this device and remove the board gently. after the removal of the board, kindly inspect the whole board. check for looseness in the sensor assemble. it will look like a small led light(very small). this will be your trouble spot. also, check the contact point area on the battery side of this board as well. you may have a lose fit here rendering the batteries inoperable.

Hi there! thanks for using fixya.com!

If you have changed the batteries already. Please try to use any universal remote control if its working on that tv.

I suggest, get a new universal remote control and use it to your 2nd tv. and the original remote control that works on your 1st tv, let it be the remote.

but, if you can have your technician to check on it just to make sure that you don't have a problem with your tv.

Regards! Cheers!

Hello,

It is a remote problem, repairing remote cost you buck (sometime is pretty to repair but you loss some $) try to compare replace it with new remote or repair the remote.

So it is recommended that new remote is possible solution.

Hi!

I think there is some obstruction on the IR Signal catching sensor of your tv and needs to be checked out. Its on the front lower panel of the tv. It catches the signal from the remote.

Check for any thing kept in front of the lower panel.

If no obstruction is there then you need to get that sensor replaced by a tech.

Thanks

The remote is a no serviceable part, that means that must not be repaired, and that schematics are not provided.

All you can do is spotting at a glance if you see a bad component or a bad solder joint.

The best solution is buying a replacement.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Three possible repairs:

  • it may be necessary to clean/scrape the battery terminals of the remote. The idea is to expose fresh metals. In some instances, it may even be necessary to bend/stretch these terminals so that they offer more pressure in contact with the batteries;
  • a common fault in remotes is a loose/detached crystal. This requires opening the remote and locating the crystal and soldering it back into position. In the example remote board image, it would be the blue component normally marked as X1;The remote control will no longer work even when I - 50667c6.jpg
  • the IR diode has burned out. This would be the part that transmit the remote signals to the TV. A continuity tester (DVM/VOM) would be needed to check for forward/reverse. If replacing, pls be reminded that it has a polarity.c6cd380.jpg
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Is this a universal remote? Make sure the remote has the universal capability. It might be just a dedicated remote to your other TV that's why is only works on one TV. Better give it a try again to another TV to check if it's universal or not.

Bought LCD Emerson 19'' Flat screen, Manufactured May of 2008. I have tried all of the available codes to get the direct remote tocontrol the volume & turn TV on & off. Can you advise me.


if you have a universal remote control that you are trying to program . the newer ones have a 4 digit code .. the older ones have only a 3 digit code .. the ones with 3 digit codes often wont work with newer equipment ... the new type universal remotes cover a lot more types .. ... if you are trying to get the remote that came with the TV working .. then you can remove the batteries for 10 min .. when you put them back in it should default to original factory settings ..

The remote control will no longer work even when I put new batter


Sometimes the IR receiver bug in the tv goes out.

To clarify. The remote RM1 for TV 1 will not work on TV1, but the remote RM1 works on TV2.

If this is the case, answer is above.

Astar LTV-19BS 19" TV -


I contacted the retailer from whom I purchased the TV and he was able to advise me on the fix. He told me that the problem is the remote control, which has to be reset.

To do that hold the Enter button down for 10-seconds, the remote and the TV should reset. It worked just fine for me.
