Buttons don't work

My TV's buttons won't work. The only ones that do are the main power button and the power button on the remote. I tried to play a DVD on the built in player but now it wont eject. Sometimes if i turn it on the display is very very dim . I unplugged the the tv from the power socket and some the power indicator light still stayed on. This all happened so suddenly one time it worked the next time it didn't

    I am having the same exact problem...anyone have a solution yet?

  • gmbrayboy Nov 15, 2007

    Same problems with my tv. The only button on the right that works is the power button. The dvd player will not accept a dvd and none of the buttons on that side work. Tried to locate a Mintek web site to find a solution but there is none, nor can I find any support for the tv.

  • mhintze Nov 17, 2007

    I have the exact same problem, and have tried similar if not the same measures to figure it out. At first it was stuck on one channel. Then after attempting to play a DVD it was stuck in DVD mode. I took apart the case and pulled out the DVD but now the TV is stuck in DVD mode.

I purchased my Mintek from Costco and had the same problem. They are aware of the problems with Mintek and lack of support. If your set is from Costco or other stores try them for a solution or refund. It worked for me. I got a full refund. Most retailers have a copy of the reciept if not try anyway.

Good Luck

Buttons on the TV nor the remote control don't work


So the power button is the only one that functions? Double check your main board, IR sensor, and key controller connections. You should not need a code at all. The only programming you should have to do is to do a scan for antenna channels you may use as well as setting up any of your personal preferences. Did you order the exact part # as the old one?

My remote won't change from AUX to Tv and all of the buttons don't work on AUX except for the volume and mute, how do I get it back on tv? Thank you


Try to push the TV button that is lit red at top middle of remote for 5 seconds in stead of hitting input. In other words by holding the tv button down it might trigger it to respond better. Thanks Mike

My tv [vizio vf550m] won't respond to a remote.


Vizio is famous for having main board issues. If you have replaced the IR board the only two other items it could be is a broken wire from the IR to main or the main board has an issue. Nothing else can stop the remote from working provided the remote is working properly.

Power button only one that won't turn power on


Have the remote tested either with a tester that most shops have or in a dark room with a digital camera the display will faintly flash when remote pointed at it and buttons pressed.

Also if button does not work (power) unplug the set for a while to see if it will reset. If the tester shows same problem--no working for power or have to press ******* buttons 99% chance something got spilled onto remote and got inside

My RCA Truflat T.V won't turn on and the FPA lock is turned on, I have the original remote. what should i do?


TV won't turn on • Press the TV button. Make sure the TV is plugged in.• Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is "live" by plugging in something else.• Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the remote control solutions on page 26.• The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Lock Fr. Panel in the PARENTAL CONTROL menu and press OK (box won't have check mark).Buttons don't work
• If you're using the remote control, press the TV button first to make sure the remote is in TV mode.• The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Lock Fr. Panel in the PARENTAL CONTROL menu and press OK (box won't have check mark).• Unplug the TV for two minutes and then plug it back in. Turn the TV on and try again.TV turns off unexpectedly • Sleep timer might have been activated. Go to page 24 for instructions.• KidPass might have been activated. Go to page 21 for instructions.• Wake-Up timer turned on the TV and no remote or front panel buttons were pressed for two hours.• Electronic protection circuit may have been activated because of a power surge. Wait 30 seconds and then
turn on again. If this happens frequently, the voltage in your house may be abnormally high or low.
• Unplug TV. Wait five minutes. Plug it in again.

My volume up on the Harmony 880 won't work. I've heard that one person did take it apart to clean the contacts, but that didn't solve the issue. Any suggestions? I don't even care if I...


If the buttons used to work then yeah it sounds like a hardware issue. You can go ahead and take the remote apart, but I don't think you will be able to fix it, unless you are good at soldering. Cleaning the contacts alone won't help. This same thing happened to the most used buttons on my Harmony One, and I just assigned the commands to the screen, so I could continue using the remote without those buttons.
If you want to try assigning the buttons to the screen, the steps in this article by Logitech will help:

I hope this helps.

Hi, My Samsung DVD player remote would not respond when power button pushed on. When DVD power turned on Manually and DVD loaded the remote would not respond to the play, arrow buttons eirther?? My LG...


If the buttons on the case are working but the buttons on the remote don't then it's clearly a fault with the remote.
Each button in the remote is made out of 2 wires on the electronics board that are joined by a small patch of conductive paint situated on the rear of the rubber button. If something gets in there, like water or dirt or the patch flakes out, the contact is no longer made and the button no longer works. The remote will have to be dismantled by popping the clips on the periphery with a sharp tool, the rubber strip holding the buttons will have to be washed and the board wiped clean. If the buttons still don't work after that then the remote is dead, you will have to get another one.

Need remote code for 22lv505 for dish network


Your code is 750....... Program the remote control in TV mode and then in VCR **repeating the steps** (or AUX - press 1 before entering the DVD code) mode.

How to program your dish network remote for your tv:

1. Use the device’s buttons or its remote control to turn on thedevice.

2. Press and hold the mode button for the device you want the remote to control, for about three seconds. When all the other mode buttons light up, let go of the mode button - that mode button should now be flashing. For example, hold the TV mode button for a TV until all of the other mode buttons light. When you let go, the TV mode light will flash.

3. Only for the AUX mode, Use a number button to enter 1 for a second VCR or DVD player

4. Use the number buttons to enter one of the device codes that I have given you.

5. Only for Limited Mode, Press 1.

Limited Mode- allow you to only use the remote to Power, Mute, and adjust Volume on your tv.
You cannot change the tv channel when the remote is in limited mode. You can only power on your
VCR in limited mode
****Note: Skip this step if you do not want to use Limited Mode.****
________________________________________________________________

6. Press the POUND (#) button. If you entered the code correctly, the mode button flashes three times.

7. Press the blank POWER button to test if the code works for the device. If it does, the device should turn off.

8. Turn the device back on and try some other buttons to make sure they work. Sometimes, the blank POWER button works when other buttons don’t. If the code works for other buttons
** Stop Here**


Let me know if this helps..
