Even with new batteries, our remote control works only occasionally. There is no pattern as to when it will work. Can you help?

    There is no cover, however. The "bulb" is recessed.

    Hello, does your remote have a plastic cover over the LED (thing that send the signal at the top) or can you see it sticking out of it?

I have read some articles of people putting a reflective material like foil behind that bulb which is supposed increase the range. You would want to make sure that if you were to try that it would not touch the contacts on the LED/Bulb, Also try to extend the bulb out further if possible.

Connecting a remote control


You don't "synchronize" a device with its remote. If the remote is the same brand and is the exact model number intended for use with your DVD player it should work. If not, there may be something wrong with the remote or the DVD player.

My S107 worked fine the fist 5 minute flight. On my second attempt nothing would happen. The green light on the controller just blinks. Occasionally when I turn them both on the chopper just takes off...


Seems like your controller is not working. Try to change its batteries.
With new batteries try the following:
1. Turn the controller ON. Wait until green light stops blinking.
2. Turn the helicopter ON.
3. Give it throttle few times until it starts working.

Sometimes controller can still work even if has a blinking light. But these cases are very rare.

I just received product JB5413. Batteries were just purchased today. The remote is working fine, but it will not weigh. The instruction manual is minimal. I need help getting this to work.


If it's any consolation my Jobar/Ideaworks JB5413 scale has the a similar problem: will not weigh, yet the remote control functions okay. About one attempt out of ten will cause a weight display, though. Can't figure out why scale works occasionally, vs. never works. Batteries are new, and the battery compartments are free of corrosion.

Do you know the sky+ remote code? So I can operate the volume control on the sky+ remote. I've tried loads already hope you can help.


Hi,

It would help to know the model number of your LG TV. However, you can try the generic codes for LG which I've listed here:


Rev 8 remote: 1293, 1206, 0206, 0065, 0904
Rev 6 remote: 0065, 0742, 0502, 0672, 0634, 0136,
Rev 4 remote: Same as Rev 6
RC1600/00 remote: codes not available and unlikely to work with your TV

** Your Sky remote version can be found on a sticker inside the battery compartment. **

Try these codes but if they don't work, please post back with your TV model number. It's possible that your remote does not have a code which will work with your TV, in which case, you will need to use the remote supplied with your TV to control volume and power functions. Unfortunately, when a TV is newer than the remote and uses a new flash pattern not programmed into that remote, the remote wont work. However manufacturers often keep the same flash patterns for common functions, so the generic codes might work for you.

I'm informed that a new Sky remote version is due but I've not been able to confirm this yet.

Hope this helps - please post back if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

I have just purchased an LG32lcd 450 tv, I cannot get the handset on Sky to work as they do not have a code to do this as the tv is new to the market, can you please help with this


Hi,

OK, as you already discovered there is no specific code for your remote. You can try the generic codes for LG which I've listed below. Your TV may use the same flash patterns as some other older LG TVs so these codes might work.

Rev 8 remote: 1293, 1206, 0206, 0065, 0904
Rev 6 remote: 0065, 0742, 0502, 0672, 0634, 0136,
Rev 4 remote: Same as Rev 6
RC1600/00 remote: codes not available and unlikely to work with your TV

** Your Sky remote version can be found on a sticker inside the battery compartment. **

Try these codes but if they don't work it's unlikely your remote will work with your TV - you will need to use the remote supplied with your TV to control volume and power functions. Unfortunately, when a TV is newer than the remote and uses a new flash pattern not programmed into that remote, the remote wont work. However manufacturers often keep the same flash patterns for common functions, so the generic codes might work for you.

I'm informed that a new Sky remote version is due - which will hopefully contain a specific code/flash pattern for your TV - but I've not been able to confirm this yet.

Hope this helps - please post back if you need further assistance.

Did you install the batteries correctly?
Some remotes (Universal) need to be re-programed when you install new batteries.
Go to remotefinder.rca.com/default.aspx?site=rca for proper codes.

URC-9910 remote: The RF part for this remote stopped working.


I have the same remote as yours and occasionally the RF remote is not working due the interference signal from outside or next door at certain hours.
My suggestions:
(1) To relocate the receiver and reposition the anntena for better reception of the RF signal from the remote unit.
(2) Replaced the battery.

Hope these help!

Possibly your new equipment doesn't use IR (infared) as the media for the remote. I have used the pyramid and different versions of it for DirecTV/Dish and most everything else for years with no major problems. occasionally a unit will fail, but that happens. If the red light blinks on the "transmitter" (no antenna) it should indicate that it is receiving IR from the remote. The "receiver" (antenna) has to be oriented correctly in front of the unit to be controlled. I put the receiver no closer than 5' to the unit. The signal coming out is a cone shape and it's easier to aim the further away you are. As a test, you could try using the remote to control a stereo or something else, even a fan. If the remote has a led or a dark red plastic cap on the front end, it should be an IR unit.
