Question about Panasonic TH-42PX60U Television

Panasonic remote and volume/channel buttons do not work

My remote and the volume/channel buttons on the TV do not work, I can only turn the tv on and off. None of the buttons work on the remote or TV including the TV-Video button. I've tried the power reset (unplugging the tv for up to an hour) but it doesn't seem to make a difference. Any time I press a button the remote control blinks 3 times (under TV). I got the 1.04 firmware from Panasonic but when I put the SD card in the slot nothing happens and pressing the SD card button on the remote does nothing (again, remote control blinks 3 times). Any suggestions? Thank you in advance

My son put a penny in the SD card slot of my Pansonic flat screen tv. I finally got the penny out but now the volume and tv controls do not work. I can change the channels through my cable box but that is it. The volume does not work on my cable remote or the flatscreen. What do you suggest I do to fix this problem?? Thanks, Josh

Try unplugging while the TV is still on and plug it back after 5 mins and check. it should work.
Mine did. I know this may be a crude method, but it worked.

Wow. Thank you so much. My daughter put a penny in our SD slot too....nothing was responding to any remote or buttons on the tv. The only thing we could do was turn it on. We unplugged the tv, fished out the penny...then plugged it back in and turned it on...boom...everything works again!

We promptly put a nice piece of clear tape over the sd flap so this won't happen again.

God bless the internet. :)

    Thanks a lot. After reading your post i searched for a penny and found 1 in the sd slot as well. My 3 year old must have put it there lol. I took it out and all my controls work again. Now my volume isn't stuck on the max.

Unplugging and plugging back in after 5 minutes did the trick! Thanks.

If none of the buttons work except power u should reset your tv. Hold vol- on tv and menu button on remote. Then unplug tv. Everything will be resset. And your remote control will work again.

I had the same problem with my TH-37PX60U. When you put the plug back in the TV will go to the beginning set up screen. Reset the date and time and it works fine.

Samsung 40 hd tv the vol will not come down from 100 percent . I try to turn the vol down and it will not turn down. what can I do. tks mike


I presume that the volume will not turn down from either the remote control or the volume buttons on the side of the tv. If the volume down button works on the side of the tv then the remote control is suspect to be faulty. If neither remote or tv volume buttons work then check whether the channel buttons work on the tv (not remote). If none of these work then check the input connection from the buttons /infra red reciver to the main pcb. This is a push on cable connector. As a point, also check that the volume up button on the tv is not stuck in, and feels the same as the other buttons when pressed.

Sylvania 6313CB 13" TV/VCR replacemnt remote


We have a Sylvania 6313CB TV/VCR combo.  I bought a universal remote and the code would not work when I tried to program it to the "TV" button using all those possible codes listed in the books.  So, on the universal remote, there was a button named "VCR" and when I programmed in the code "0000" all worked.  This was a $6.00 universal remote named "One For All"  we bought at the Big Lots store.  
Specifically, here is what I did:
Turned TV on Pushed the "VCR" button and light blinked once Pushed and held the "set" button until it blinked twice Released the "set" button and entered the numbers "0000" Pushed the on/off button and it worked including volume, channel up/down and channel change by entering the channel number.
Hope this works for you too.
