    I'm having the same problem. I have verified my remote works as I took the remote to my neighbor's house and it worked on his Onkyo, but the remote will not operate my unit. His remote does not operate my Receiver, either. Could my remote reader have gone bad? I've tried unplugging the unit, that doesn't work. Is there a way to 're-boot' a machine. It's not worth sending in for repair since it's so heavy and postage would be very high. The receiver hasn't been used much, so I'm very disappointed given the cost of this unit. Any help is appreciated.

  • pclausen Dec 08, 2007

    I am having the exact same problem. It's as if the IR remote sensor on the receiver has just stopped working. Has anyone found a way to fix this without sending in for repairs? Based on equivalent replacement cost vs. repair cost, getting it fixed doesn't make sense.



    Thanks!

    I have the same problem. The remote only works intermittently, usually when the unit is first powered on. I bought a new remote from replacementremotes.com (it is cheesy, but only $20 vs. $100 for an exact replacement). The behavior with that remote is exactly the same as with the original. I was hoping to find a solution on the web, but no luck so far.

    The next steps I may try are:

    1. Look in the manual for the location of the sensor (note, it is most likely not where the blinking light is) and clean the plastic in front of it.

    2. Open the case and see if there is dust in front of the sensor. If so, blow it out with canned air.

    3. Try to find and install a replacement sensor, IF it looks easy, and IF I can determine the component number.

    Well, let me join the club: exactly the same here! I´m 100% it´s not the remote. I also doubt very much this is a dust matter, as sometimes it starts working again suddenly after 15 min. or so. However when doing fine, it might suddenly drop out! Sometimes it helps to pull the plug from the wall outlet for a while: it might work as a sort of reset. One day this helps (temporarely!!), the other it doesn´t at all. This situation is lasting for about a year now. Not considering having it repaired (if possible at all!?), rather buying something else. For the rest this set is (almost) perfect fot my needs. Really hope someone turns up with help!

    I looked at the service manual suggested by the guest poster (thanks). It doesn't have anything specifically about testing the IR sensor, but it does have circuit diagrams and shows how to take the unit apart. The IR sensor appears to be directly connected to a microprocessor chip, although there are two capacitors also connected to it. It seems that the problem could only arise from one of three things: bad sensor, bad capacitors, bad microprocessor chip. I am going to take the unit apart and see if I can figure out which one it is.

  • imoveritru Mar 03, 2008

    I have the same problem. My remote worked fine until last night. I hope someone figures this out.



    I did find instructions to reset the remote to the base settings. It didn't help.

Hi! Just found out you can download a service manual for the 575X (which may be almost equivalent?) here: http://fileshare.eshop.bg/downloadsm/26069/ONKYO_TXDS575X.html
Haven´t had time to search yet, but maybe one of us can find a hint there.......?

Have you pressed the Mode Audio button on the left above the circle? This tells the remote you want to control the reciever.

Onkyo tx ds777 remote does not working


If battery replacement does not work, your remote control probably has failed.

I have a videocon vitaair AC . The remote control function is not functioning. The AC is not receiving any signals from the remote. Remote control has new batteries and display working.kindly help.


you can check if the remote is transmitting by looking at the end of the remote where the little bulb is that you point at the air con unit through a smartphone camera and press each button, if the light flashes the remote infra red transmitter is sending. your mobole camera can pick up light in the part of the spectrum your eyes cannot and displays as a flash. it will at least let you know if the problem is the remote transmitter or the units receiver

Remote does not work. I have changed batteries twice - yet remote has red light with no response from the TV. Thanks


You can test the remote control using a camera to see if the remote is transmitting the IR signal. Place the remote control in front of camera and press any button, once you press the buttons you should see the LED on the remote emitting a light but that is only visible on the camera. If no light is visible, then the remote control is defective.. If light is light is present, then is IR receiver on the TV is defective.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Hi. my original remote for my onkyo tx ds575 all of a sudden is not working anymore. the red light on the remore still lights up when i press a button but the receiver is not picking it up. hopefully you...


The red light on the remote just means the battery is good and the remote is responding when you press a button. It doesn't mean the control is actually sending out a signal. Many retail stores have a tester that will tell you if the remote is transmitting. Another possibility is that the remote sensor in the receiver has gone bad, and that the remote is fine. A universal remote (One-4-All URC6131, for example) that can work home theater receivers can be used to test the receiver. It may not work all the functions, but if it turns the receiver on and off you'll know the remote is at fault and not the receiver. Then you'll be able to replace the remote or have the receiver serviced as needed.

How do i key in code for digibox


TO PROGRAM THE remote USING THE 3 DIGIT CODE:
1. Turn on the TV receiver
2. Press TV on the Sky Remote Control
3. Hold down SELECT and the RED buttons together for approximately two seconds, until the RED LED on the Sky remote blinks twice.
4. Enter three digit code from list for the receiver (early versions now flash twice).
5. Press select to enter code structure (the LED will flash twice if a valid code has been entered).
6. Now press the STDBY button and test other functions.
Repeat if necessary until a code is found that works most common functions.
TO PROGRAM THE remote USING THE 4 DIGIT CODE:
1. Turn your TV on.
2. Press tv on your Sky remote control.
3. Hold down select and the red button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.
4. Press tv on your Sky remote control again.
5. Key in the four digit code for your brand of TV. The light on the Sky remote control blinks twice. If the light blinks once only, recheck the code for your brand of TV and start again at Step 1.
6. Press the standby button on your Sky remote control. If your TV switches off, press select. The light on the Sky remote control blinks twice (code stored). If your TV does not switch off, press tv, then press the standby button. Repeat this (press tv, then standby) until your TV turns off, then press select (stores code).
If at this point the LED on the Sky remote control blinks three times then all possible codes for that make of receiver have been checked. Repeat from step one, ensuring that you enter the correct manufacturer code.
At the end of the sequence, if you see the TV Guide screen, the remote control setup process is complete. If you did not see the TV Guide screen, you must now complete the following steps.
8. Press tv on your Sky remote control.
9. Hold down select and the green button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.
10. Key in the number of the channel on your TV that you use for watching satellite TV.
11. Press select on your Sky remote control. The red light blinks twice. The remote control setup process is complete.
If after trying this, you still have problems, call your broadcaster's help desk. For your broadcaster's help desk number, select the Telephone Numbers option from the Services screen.

  3. ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
  4. ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
    Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.
  5. When your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in the code for your device.

2. Learn the buttons from the original

Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing thefollowing steps.
  1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
