Re: remote control

Does your remote have a button called TV. Press this first and then hit the power button and the TV should turn on. Remotes these days control multiple devices like DVD players and VCRs and you need to ensure that you have selected the right mode. Hope this solves your problem.

Remote wont work

If the remote control is a universal one, you should set it up with the TV, with its set-up codes. If you wish to get more codes and other details check:

I was watching T.V. and when I went to change the channel, the remote control wouldn't respond. I changed the batteries (generic) & the new ones didn't make the remote work either. I hit the power...

You won't be able to see the light from remote's LED (Light Emitting Diode) because it is IR (Infra Red) which is invisible to the human eye.

Try re-entering the code for your tv to see if it works.

If that doesn't work, the remote might have just died. It happens.

Get yourself a new UNIVERSAL REMOTE for less than $20 and just program it for your tv.

Good luck and post back to let us know how it works out.

Brand New TV - remote doesnt work

Is it the original remote for this TV?
Testing remote control:
The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera’s Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera’s screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the TV IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals.

If this doesn't solve the problem, connect standard 1/8" headphones into the remote control OR the headphones jack on the TV. Then unplug the TV for a minute. Plug it back in, turn it on, and see what happens. Hope this helps, may not seem relevant, but it works for some reason.
Good luck...

Remote Stopped Working

It is possible the IR sensor is bad. Most of the time if it is a remote issue, the light on the remote will not light up. Does the remote that came with tv still control any functions? I would try the remote that came with the tv, and then go from there, but it sounds like your IR sensor has gone out on you.

What is the remote control code for philips 42pfl3603d lcd tv

Hi - I had the same question and found it here:
Some TV brands have multiple codes associated to it. You must try each one individually until one of them does the job.
This worked for me beautifully on a brand spanking new Philips 42'' LCD.
Good luck!

Looks like a common frequency and coding problem. Try to keep the TV and Cable box far away and try the remote. If it works, then, escalate to Cable operator for providing a new box with remote or ask for a different brand of cable box.
