Re: cant use any remote

On the front of the chassis is a IR detector it is probably bad. sometimes if you have and old set and the IR looks the same you can use it as a replacement.
Most of the ones I have run into have had windex drip past the edge of the picture tube. the IRD is under the tube so it gets on the IRD. sometimes you get lucky and can clean it off real good and it will work again.

Toshiba 32a14 does not respond to remote control

There is a infrared light sensor inside the TV which detects the infrared rays emitted from the remote control, when we press each button on the remote control. If this sensor has got damaged, the set won't respond to any remote control handset. The sensor can be located just behind the infrared sensor window at the front panel of the TV. To access it, you have to open the TV. It is a three terminal component, will be soldered diretily to front panel circuit board, of with the main baord itslef. Will look somewhat brownish black in colour. There are so many types can be seen . Just look what type if fitted with your TV.

I have a Sylvania 6424FF tv and i cant get it programmed to a univeral RCA remote the codes listed are NOT working

RCA- RCU 500 model universal remote has Sylvania TV coded with. The codes are:

Programming method

[1] Press the button of the device you want to
control (for example TV).

[2] If the device turns on, press another button,
to confirm (for example CHANNEL UP)

[3] If the device you selected (TV) responds,

you will not need to program the remote.

If the device you selected (TV) does

not respond, you will need to program
the remote
There are very rare RCA remotes, with Sylvania TV can be programmed. Just try the above codes with your present RCA remote control. If it does not help, buy the above model RCA universal remote. You will get code list and all other related documents, how to programme it or so, with the device you do purchase. OK.

TV doesn't respond to remote controller suddenly. I changed batteries of the controller and checked it. The controller is not a problem. I tried manual buttons on TV but it didn't work. TV turns on and...

This is caused by radio frequency and what i mean by that isyour tv unit is gettng confused with the crystals that control the connection between the tv and remote.The solution to this is to go to wal mart and buy a new universal remote and in the package should be an instruction manual to set the remote to the tv , First find your tv name in the pamplet,second there will show a code of the remote type it in and enjoy.

Television response.

Try to locate the line of sight sensor on your TV that does not respond to the remote. The lack of response indicates that the sensor on the TV needs to be cleaned. It does not take much (dust, wax, cleaner residue) to block the signal.

My TV won't respond to the remote control

"My TV does respond to several channels from the remote , but not to all of them."

yoopergal , I know you love the little IR component az do I , The little IR may not be the problem.

What you may me experiencing is a remote control that has become defective or dammaged.

What kind of dammage is anybodies guess.

It could be the CPU inside , or it could be that the little contacts inside are not working.

so you may need to find a Universal Remote and you may want to check to see which one is the best before purchasing one.

When you look for a new (UVR) Universal Remote Control make sure you buy one with an small digital display so that you can see the alpha numerical data output of the remote.

Make sure that the UVR you buy contains the codes for the equipment you already own.

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.
