Re: media centre control panel not working

You may be having the same problem I have. There is a ribbon cable that connects the front panel to the main control board. Mine has pulled loose where it connects to the printed circuit board that the buttons "connect" to. I would not suggest taking it apart. I'm in the process of trying to find someone who can repair mine.

My remote is bad and need to increase the volume manually on Samsung ht-txq120 home theatre system

If your remote won't work at all, then you'll need to get a new remote from Samsung to control all functions. If however, everything works on the remote but the volume, keep the original for all other functions and just use a cheap universal remote programmed to the Samsung code to control the volume. I had the same thing happen on a Sony THIB remote for a HT. I used a Scientific Atlanta to turn it on and off, as well as control the volume, but retained the original remote so I could get at all other functions. If you have to buy a new Samsung remote or if you buy one of those high-dollar universal remotes that program a zillion functions it will cost you big. Fair warning.

Volume turns down by itself until it says VOLMIN

I have a Samsung home theater system model HT-D6730W. I have had some issues with the volume turning itself down till it says volmin. I've seen that I'm not the only one with this issue!!!! I have tried all the suggestions that were posted. Doing a hard reset, changing settings, I bought a cooling pad for laptops Hopi g those would fix it. I called Samsung support Which was a joke!!! I took the putter cover off and cleaned all the dust from the unit, removed batteries from remote, removed all cable connection on the back of the unit other than the HDMI cable going to the tv. Having done all that the unit was still turning its self down. I'm a bit of a tinker and so while the cover was off of the unit, displaying all the delicate stuff inside, I turned on the home theater system and played a movie set the volume to a good listening sound. When it started to turn it self down I remove the wide wire ribbon from the main circuit board going to the touch panel on the front of the unit. Voila!!! Sound quit going down!!!! I unplugged unit and removed front touch panel and cleaned all dust from the inside of it. Put it all back together. Tested. Still doing it. Removed the touch panel again and this time I disconnected the small wire ribbon for the volume touch buttons. Reassembled and tested. NO MORE ISSUES!!! Everything on the front still works other than the volume buttons. You can still change the volume using the remote!!!! I hope this finds everybody that is having this issue with there unit.

Can't link my new lifestyle 48 remote control to my lifestyle 38 system?

If the remote does not work as you expect
If your system does not respond when you press a button on the remote, it could be time to
change batteries. For information on the type of batteries to use and how to change them,
refer to "Replacing the remote control batteries" on page 51
In some buildings, you may experience "dead spots" where the remote control will not
operate effectively. If this happens, move the remote a foot or two and try again. Also make
sure the cord that connects the power supply to the media center (and contains the remote
antenna) is stretched to its full length and is separated from other power cords. If these
efforts do not work, move the media center a few feet to a location where it provides a better
If the batteries are fine and the suggestions concerning "dead spots," above do not work,
you may need an antenna extender. To contact Bose

customer service to request one, refer
to the address list included with the system.

I want to control my Sony DAV-HDX576WF with my Comcast remote control and need the remote control code.

Reposting from multiple sources.
It seems like most (maybe all) Sony HTIB do not work with the Comcast Custom Remote. I've found a work around that fixes the volume control and power button though. Hope it helps you all. I have a DAVHDX275 but I think this will work for most Sony HTIB systems.

What you need to do is steal some codes from a like product and then hardcode in the changes you need to the comcast remote. Set your AUX to 21232 (a sony code for TVicon1.png/VCRs).

Then do the following:

1. While still on AUX, press and hold SETUP again until the remote blinks twice
2. Type 994
3. Press and release SETUP
4. Type 32975
5. Press and release VOL+
The remote should blink twice. That should reprogram the VOL+ to work with your Sony HT device. For each of the following function codes, follow the same steps and use the codes listed below:
Vol+ = 32975
Vol- = 31951Power = 32719Mute = 33743
Good luck. Let me know if it works.

Also, to program your remote to function volume controls while in CBL or TV mode without switching between modes to change the volume, see below. Source Volume Control To TV or AUX Mode:
1. Press and hold SETUP until the Red light flashes twice, then release SETUP.
2. Enter 9 - 9 - 3 (Red light will flash twice).
3. Press and release either TV or AUX (Red light for selected device will flash twice).

I have an older RCA home theater proformer amp has a model # of PA4500 I cannot get any remote to program to use it, it has no volume dials and you cannot control the volume without a remote and we have...

The PA-4500-M does not have a wireless remote control. The amp turns on when there is an audio signal present at one of the inputs. The power button on the front is the master power, when the amp is ready the front LED will continuously glow RED, when the audio signal is sensed, the LED will glow GREEN. The audio signals must be variable otherwise you cannot control the volume.

Bose link AL8 connection problems

I had a similar problem, though intermittent, using my 48 with the AL8 and room-mate speakers. I kept getting a "no signal received from media centre" message on the remote in the second room.

Assuming that the batteries are ok and you don't have a hardware problem, the problem might be that the 48 is not picking up the signal from your remote control in your second room. The signal from your remote control is a radio signal that goes directly to the 48 - it doesn't communicate via the AL8 receiver. I think the orange light will only turn green once a signal is being transmitted from the transmitter unit plugged into your 48 media centre, and this won't start transmitting until the media centre gets a signal from the remote telling it to switch on.

The aerial for all the remote controls is contained in the power cable that links the 48 lifestyle unit to your VS-2 unit. Make sure that this is uncoiled and oriented vertically, as far away from other cables as possible.

If this doesn't work, you can get an antenna extender that plugs into the RC socket on the back of the lifestyle system. Again, orient this vertically. You can get these from Bose.

Is there anything in the wall that might be blocking the radio signal? Lots of metalwork for example?

If orienting the power cable from the VS-2 doesn't do the trick, I suggest that you go to a local Bose shop. (An actual Bose shop, not just an electrical or hifi store stocking Bose products). I explained my problem and the tech guy gave me an extender gratis (its basically just an FM aerial wire by the look of it). I installed it this morning and, so far, its seems to be working ok. As my unit is fairly new, he also offered to have the kit back in the shop to check it all out and, if that didn't work gave me Bose technical support number. He even offered, if all else failed, to send a guy out to my home to get it working - and I didn't even buy it from there!

Hope this helps.

I have ATT U-Verse and the LG LFD790 Home Theater System. I can program the U-Verse remote to turn the LG on/off, but can not control volume from U-Verse remote. Do you have any codes I can try?

well you have the right code, but you have to get the volume options so you can control it. Hold down at&t and the ok button, then let them go. put in code 955 then press enter(bottom right) now you should be able to select whatever device and control that volume source

Remote has stopped working for Philips LX3000 D

The remote control might be damaged. If it is possible to arrange a new remote for testing, do it. volume control of LX3000D works from the front PCB. check the front PCB is perfectly ok or not. Regarding the DVD player, what it says when you try to load a disk?
