Dear Mr.yeye,
There seems to be a problem with the IR LED of your television. solder the connections if any of them is cut. Also there can be loose connections. its better to contact the retailer from whom you purchased this tv

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

NOTE:
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

SOURCE: my remote control for my polaroid tv wont change channels.

You may be able to program your cable box remote to control your TV in addition to your cable box. When they initially set up your cable box they probably left a pamphlet giving you instructions on how to program your remote. I'm not sure why you can't change the TV channels manually but this may give you a work-around.

We have misplaced our remote to vizio smart tv. I ordered new one but it will not be here for another month. Can I change channels without remote. We are stuck on hallmark channel :(


On some of the Vizio Smart TVs, there are volume and channel buttons along the side panel. They are pretty well concealed, but there are there. If you can give me a model number, I can be more specific.

Shorted component/s at its main board. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

Tv works fine for few minutes, then the tv wont respond to remote


There's clearly a heat-stressed component in there, possibly something as simple as a badly soldered joint in which a gap opens up due to heat expansion.

It's not that old a TV so may be covered under warranty. If not it's going to need to go into a repair centre where they can find the fault and repair or replace the affected part.

Re-soldering a bad joint isn't always possible in which case the circuit board which it's located on gets replaced instead.

Remote control not responding


Perhaps you can try what I do when my KV24FV300 runs through channels and will not stop.  Hard to watch and remote will not work.  Nothing works but on and off from set. 

Sony Says:  Take all batteries out of ALL remotes that you use in any way for that set, VCR, etc.  ALL batteries out.  Turn TV off at set.  Unplug TV.  Wait at least 15 minutes then replace all batteries in ALL remotes.  Plug TV back in and turn TV on from set.

Maybe, just maybe it will work.  If it does not work why not call Sony, they always say that cannot happen but they have a solution for it.

Setting tv to channel 3


When the led blinks twice it is telling you that the remote accepts the code, but that does not mean the tv accepts the code. If the tv does not power on after programming the new code then you must try the next code in the sequence, until you find one that powers on or off the tv.

After programming my new universal remote, the tv keeps changing chanels! wont stop!


you need to program your remote control. take the battaries out. and maually turn the tv on. then hit the source you want to view. for example, I want to control the tv set. I push, code search and hold it then push the source button and then release the source button and then release the code search button. now, aim at the tv and then keep pressing power button till it goes off. when the tv is off, hit return or set or something like that.( every remote has different calling for it but still the same function) it should work. try it and let me know.
