Question about DISH Network IR Remote Control

Second remote not working correctly.

Second remote will not respond in many cases unless remote is waved or pressed many times. Volume, on/off work fine. Changing channels and working the guide are the problem. Even pressing the actual channel #'s does not alway work. Batteries are OK. What to do? Need a new remote? First remote works perfect

    My second remote will only work if it is right in front of the receiver. It works for the tv, but not the satellite.

Hisense TV model #40H5 won't respond to remote or buttons on TV.Ive tried changing Input,channel,adjusting volume & turning TV off.

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.

Non responsive buttons

You have to open up the remote. The underside of each button has a black disk. Clean each button with a pencil eraser. Then look at the circuit board. Where each of the black discs would make contact (looks like two "E"s facing each other) clean each of those with the eraser. But the remote back together and all the buttons will be responsive.

Remote not responding

It sounds like the remote may need to be reprogrammed to thetelevision or receiver depending on what specifically is not responding. Thefirst thing to do when having problems with a remote it to replace thebatteries, as that is a common cause. If the remote is not changing your DISHchannels then you would need to address the remote to the receiver. This can bedone by pressing 'System Info' button on the receiver then press the 'SAT'button on the remote once, then press the 'Record' button. If the remote is notturning on the television or working the volume, you would need to address theremote to the television. This can be done by doing a 'power scan'. First holddown the TV button for 6 seconds, press and release the power button, then pressand release the 'channel up' button once per second until the television turnsitself off. Lastly, press the pound button, this will lock in the code for yourTV and the remote should then work.

Why does my RCA TV cycle through channels on its own?

this is the same type of problem happening with other rca models and I know it is the EPROM CHIP but why this is failing is either because of design flaw , dirty enviroment that they were made in , to much voltage or current to the chip or too much of a draw from the chip causing it to fail . Or even a random frequency from the IR sensor or its circut I'm still investigating and testing.
leave the tv unplugged for at least 3 weeks durring this time resolder any solder that don't look good , I did this and it lasted for about 6 months(always plugged in to the wall) before it started doing it again. model # 27v412t

Remote problems and now FPA locked

In the worse case:
It is very possible that the remote recieve on the set has gone defective. It is also possible that there is a fault with the processor in the set, and the remote signals are not being responded to.

As for your universal remote, I don't trust them.

Did you try changing the batteries in the remote? Make sure the new ones are actualy in good condition.

Channels keep changing

Make sure there is no other remote control working simultaneously or with a key pressed constantly by mistake. In my case i found the air conditioning remote control with one key being pressed by my furniture next to my bed, it was causing that erratic behavior. As soon i realized, i stopped that remote control and problem solved. I hope this works.
