The sensor for these Panasonic tvs along with certain Toshiba models tend to have the problem with the sets sensor going out. But if you are using a universal remote because you do not have the original, then most likely you will need to use the vcr control codes to program the tv. but if the original doesnt work either. your insticts are probably right. There is one last trick if you do have the original remote that u can try. I've had this work for me several times on service calls. With the batteries removed. Press every single button on the remote once. make sure you do this nice and slow making sure you are pressing the button down . if its a toggle button or rocker button like most volume or channel up down buttons(meanning that physically the is one button but depending on what part of button you press it does something differemt) well treat these as seperate buttons. Also if the remote has any switches on it. Like vcr/tv switch or vcr 1 vcr 2 etc. Then switch to other position and repeat the process of pressing all buttons once again. (remote does not have too be pointed at tv for obvious reasons) Now replace the batteries and have fingers crossed. Good luck.

Hi, You need a code to match with your TV remote. The codes for the Ge universal remote for Sanyo are 0049 0097 0110 0004 0268 0012 0108 0180. You will have to try each code seperately untill you get one that works. Good luck.

Remote won't work. Tried new batteries, reprogramming, etc. Universal Remote doesn't work either. LG #42PC5DC


Hi,
To confirmed if the remote control is working fine, aim the remote control sensor(IR emitter) directly to your cellphone camera. While pressing any button key on the remote control, you can see the flash of an infrared emitted by the remote control if it is working fine.


If you've confirmed that the remote control emitted an infrared but still the tv won't communicate with it, this is an indication of faulty IR sensor board of the TV. Check if there's an obstruction from the IR receiver in front. Keep away all of it, clean the plastic window of the IR receiver with soft clean cloth.
If the symptoms still persist, you have to replace the IR sensor board. Check the actual part no. of the board before ordering.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

My remote wont work on my grundig gu15wdt/gu15wdpcx, have tried changing the batteries and it still doesnt work, where can i get a new one?


Hello,

If new batteries did not fix the problem, then it means the problem is either from the remote or the TV.

Remote: Check the remote battery terminal, see if its not rust. Also, disassemble the remote, can check the connection between the terminal and the remote board, see if there is no disconnection of any kind.

If after checking and all seems well, then it means the remote is defective. To confirm, borrow a remote, test it with the TV. If it works, then it means you need to replace your remote. But if the remote you borrowed does not work, then it means the problem is from the TV and not the remote.

TV: There is a sensor in the TV that communicates with the remote. If this sensor is defective, the remote won't communicate with the TV.

The TV sensor might have loosed contact from inside of the TV or it maybe defective and need to be replaced.

So do the above troubleshooting and let me know if the problem is from the TV or remote. If problem is from the remote, you need to do a replacement. But if otherwise, let me knows as well.

Lastly, please don't by a remote with confirming it is a remote problem. You have to be sure before thinking of a battery replacement.

Regards.
