Question about Televison & Video
It sounds that the remote control emits incorrect coded infrared signal. If so, it will be best to buy a new one.

SOURCE: RCA TV Remote Malfunction
From your post I understand that the tv is not turning on even if you use the button on tv, if that is the case there is nothing wrong with the remote control, and from the blinking light shows that there is something wrong with the tv. Get it checked by a qualified service guy.

1 Turn on the component you want to program.
2 Press and hold both the TV/DVD/ect button and the power button untill the light comes on and stays on
3 Press the play button every 5 seconds until the device turns off. A bank of ten codes is being sent each time.
4 Press the rewind/reverse button to see if it turns off/on again. Wait 2 seconds and press again until it turns back on.You may have to do this up to 10 times until it searches through the bank of ten codes sent.
5 Press and hold the stop button until the light goes off. This saves the code.

I had the same problem. The problem is strange and seems to be with the receiver in the TV and not the remote control. The reason I say this is that when this first happened my Samsung brand DVD could actually control the TV. This then also failed, but still works fine with the DVD player.
Anyway there is an even more bizarre fix to all this......
- Remove the batteries from your TV remote. - Press and hold the red (ON/OFF) button for at least 1 min. - Replace the batteries and hey presto!!
I know seems far fetched but I found it on the Samsung website and it does work.

You must first find out why the remote control is not working properly. These remote controls have been having problems with new batteries. The battery holder on the positive side need to be adjusted out to make sure its making contact with the batteries. This may be the reason the remote control is not working. After you find the problem with the functioning of the remote control you can go to the RCA customer support website http://voxrightnow.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/voxrightnow.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1769&p_created=1209688350&p_sid=6-sdxLAj&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9ODE4LDgxOCZwX3Byb2RzPTE1OCZwX2NhdHM9MCZwX3B2PTEuMTU4JnBfY3Y9JnBfc2VhcmNoX3R5cGU9YW5zd2Vycy5zZWFyY2hfbmwmcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1yY2Egc3lzdGVtIDUgcmVtb3RlIGNvbnRyb2w*&p_li=&p_topview=1 find the codes for the components you want to use with the remote control. Use the codes to make the remote operational . This should be all you have to, if the remote control is working properly. If you cannot get the remote control to work properly, you can call the RCA customer support at this telephone number 1-800-645-4994. Give them the model number of the remote control and ask them for assistance with the problem. I hope this information help you with the problem you are having with your remote control. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day!
