The Infrared receiver contacts have a problem with bad solder joints. You can re-solder them if you know how.

On mx900 genesis universal remote the up down arrows to change channels will not work - cannot get guide to display -cannot change channels using#key pad - volume up down work fine suggestions?

Incorrect code. Try different programming codes for one that operates your TV correctly. Note not all universal remotes will work all features of a tv. Sometimes all you can get (especially on lower end remotes) is power and volume

I have a U-verse remote and have tried both codes for Philips and Magnavox and none of them work..volume doesn't work and power key doesn't turn TV off..What do I do ?

Get a Logitech Harmony remote. It programs from their website so if ever you change TV's or any other Hi Fi component, you simply connect the remote to a USB port on your PC and reprogram it to operate the new equipment. It never gets obsolete and will operate several hundred different devices. You can use it to replace several remotes so one remote will operate the whole sound system, TV, DVD players,Audio amps and satellite receivers.

I can't get the volume to work on my ge vcr model # vg4061

You might have to try several different codes on your universal remote till you find one that also works the volume. Try all the codes for that model.

My Dish 5.0 IR remote won't program to my new TV, it's an Emerson, the model number on the back is- LC320EMXF. I've tried holding the TV button until all the top lights flashed and then...


You were attempting to perform a power scan initially. The second procedure is manually attempting to address the remote to your TV. I will give you the procedures again so you can try one more time. Emerson TV is one brand we have a low percentage of success getting our remotes to work. If it still doesn't work, we could try replacing the remote.

TV code: 623, 667, 666, 233, 516, 537, 544, 642, 655, 699, 000, 999, 888, and 720.

Remotes: Basic (Television Only)
  1. Turn the Television On.
  2. Press and hold the clear TV button for six seconds until the LED flashes.
  3. Enter the three-digit code using the buttons on the number pad.
  4. Press #. Note: The LED will flash three times.
  5. Test functionality with the TV.
  6. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.
Remote Power Scan: Basic Remote (Television Only)
  1. Turn the Television On.
  2. Press and hold the clear TV button for six seconds until the LED flashes.
  3. Press and release the red TV Power button.
  4. Press and release the Up or Down Arrow on the remote until the television turns off once every second.
  5. After the television turns off, press and release the # button.
  6. Test functionality with the TV.
  7. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.

I have a Sony Bravia TV, only a year old, had several power outages and suddenly RM-YD028 TV remote is not working at all. On the Dish network remote, the satellite controls are working, but not TV...

If neither the DISH Network remote or the TV remote is working for you most likely your remote sensor is going bad. If you'd like to try readdressing the remote follow the steps and procedures below. Codes: 500, 837, 125, 808, 798, 640, 796, 783, 795, 797, 865, 846, 842, 563, 501, 810, 841, 781, 807, 838, 690, 758, 843, 845, 591, 839, 806, 840, 844
To program the remote:
1.) Hold the clear "TV" mode button for four seconds or until all four buttons at the top of the remote are lit.
2.) Press one of the three digit codes listed above followed by pound (#)
3.) Check for functionality by trying the volume power and mute.
Be sure to press the "SAT" button to return to satellite mode if the code works.

My remote stopped working can it be reset


I found the following reference to resetting anything related to the ZN110 remote:

"This remote control works well for all the basic functions on the television: changing channels, adjusting volume, and turning the set on and off. There is not a way to program the TV with the remote control, so if you need to reset the channels after a power outage, for example, you have to do it manually on the TV set itself."

Or it could just be batteries?

The television wont change channels, only power and volume work,

also check remote control if it the rubber contacts are clean. sometimes moisture seeps into remoted. and several times semiconductor rubber contacts loose their properties with friction and pressure.Try to remove batteries of the remote for several minutes and press buttons to discharge any current stred into capacitors. Put the batteries back into remote and try it.Otherwise Try another of the same remote or there may other problems with TV IR sensor. or switching circuit.

Change the volume in WMC doesn´t working...

If the remote control causes a visible change with the volume control display but no audible difference, there are only three possible fixes. 1.)Go to Windows "Start > Control Panel > Sounds > Advanced. Here you will find a set of several volume control slide bars each with a check box at the bottom for muting. Un-check any controls marked as muted and raise the volume to 50%. Exit Control Panel. 2.) Many P.C. speaker systems are self amplified and have their own volume controls which supercede anything you do through Windows. 3.)If the problem persists you most likely have a jack plugged into the wrong feed. Allways power OFF and ground yourself before fiddling with computer jacks.

Powers on will not change channels or video inputs

Is your remote programmed properly? If it is a universal remote, try setting it to one of the different codes for your brand. Sometimes the power and mute buttons and things like that are the same for all different types of a brand, yet all of the channel and volume things are different. If it's the remote that came with the TV, then I would try to get a replacement, as it could be faulty. Hopefully this problem is with the remote, and not the TV. Find if this is the case by using the volume/channel buttons on the TV itself. If they work, then you can be reasurred you don't have to call the TV repairman, and you will probably be able to fix this problem yourself.
