Remote or Reciever?

Hi. My remote appears to stop working randomly, yet even with fresh batteries, and aiming at my computer webcam, i can see the infra-red on the remote is steady white then off every 2 seconds, then back the remote junk or is my reciever bo longer receiving the signal?

Re: Remote or Reciever?

I had this problem and clearly saw the three solder joints had the telltail rings as indentified by blade613. Resolder them and so far so good. Thanks a million blade613, I had been trying to solve this problem for a year.

Re: Remote or Reciever?

It could be the receiver LED. But I would try cleaning the remote pads first and infrared LED.

The problem might not be your remote. It could be your IR sensor in the reciever.

The reciever does no respond when I press the remote control even after changing batteries by new ones. however, the reciever responds well when controlled by pressing the bottons located on the reciever....

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
They also sell replacement remotes.

Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.
or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remotes", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

Remote control stopped working.

Hi forlillis,

1. Make sure there are fresh batteries in the remote, and they are installed correctly.
2. Make sure the area between the remote control and receiver is not blocked by some object,
and the distance is no more than 15 feet at an angle no greater than 30 degrees from the
front of the receiver.
3. Make sure strong lighting is not directed towards the IR sensor of the receiver.
4. Press each button on the remote and verify proper operation.
If these steps are taken and remote control still does not function properly 
5. This step discharges the capacitor and resets the remote control. (You do not need to point
the remote control at the receiver or even have the receiver turned on.)
A: AVR35  Press the TV and the M4 buttons at the same time and hold for 12 seconds.
To Test: Make sure your AVR35 is ON, press each button on the remote and verify
proper operation of your receiver.

Let me know how it went.

All remotes controlling my Onkyo TX-SR304 stopped working

try putting the remote an inch away from the IR receiver on the unit and see if it works then, if so then you definitely know its broken. This can and does happen. From what you have posted it sounds like no remote is working on the receiver, the ir receiver can break. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,

Sherwood rd7103 rec.

no listing for Sherwood receiver. must do the remote "search" function. here is how:
  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. On the remote control, press TV once.
  3. Then press and hold SETUP until the TV key blinks twice, then release the SETUP key.
  4. Using the number pad, enter 9-9-1. The TV key will blink twice.
  5. Aim the remote control at the TV and slowly alternate between pressing Power and TV. Stop when the TV turns off after pressing the POWER key. This means that a working code has been found.
  6. Press the SETUP key once to lock in the code. The TV key will blink twice.
Hope that helps!

I have an Onkyo TX-DS747 and the RC-P101S remote. The functions on the remote worked when we bought it, but when the remote stopped working I was no longer able to use the on screen features and the...

Just a thought, but maybe even the new batteries aren't making good contact (you have replaced the batteries, right?).

Remove the batteries, using a cotton swab and alchohol, clean the contacts in the remote. Then install fresh batteries.

If that does not remedy the problem, you may be able to locate a used remote for your model. Do a google search for remote control resellers, or check a popular auction site.

Remote will not work on my reciever

I am wondering if it a preprogrammed remote controller or not. If not, you have to reprogram it.
