Question about LG AN-MR300Q Remote Control AKB73597001

1 Answer

Remote doesn't work

We have had this remote for about 2 years. It frequently freezes and we cannot use it at all. Battery changes help initially or taking them out and putting them back in help for a bit. What other information do you need to help? Thank you, Sara McCue

It may be that the battery terminals in the remote are not making good contact with the batteries. Make sure the terminals do not have corrosion on them. If there is any corrosion, especially on the flat terminals ( where the positive side of the battery goes) , clean the terminal(s) with a little rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab. The terminals should be shinny. If they are not, first scrape them with a small flat screw driver or anything that will fit, a small knife tip, etc. Then clean with cotton swab. Also make sure the terminals are making good contact with the batteries. The batteries should fit tight. Again, with anything that will fit, try to gently pry the flat terminals out a bit. Hope this works for you!!!!!!!!!!

Vizio remote xrv1tv doesn' t work. it doesn't do nothing. i replaced batteries.what can i do? used to work perfect almost 2 years. do i need to set up the control? how? thanks

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. If found no infrared emission, check its battery compartment, and clean the battery contacts. If battery contacts have been accumulated with dust or dirt, the remote won't work, as there will be no supply to its internal circuit. Check this link. It has one post, that describes how to check and repair a remote control. Pull up older posts there.

Ceiling fan remote control doesn't work

Sounds like you have an add-on remote. Try changing the frequency in the receiver & transmitter. If that doesn't work you probably need a new receiver.

My spectra hv101 rotates but the line is not visible even 2 inches from unit

First be sure to check the obvious such as batteries and cleaning the battery connection points. If that doesn't do it, try freezing the instrument by placing it in a deep freeze for at least 45 minutes. I had two non functioning laser diodes on my 5 point Stanley Laser and for some unknown (to me) reason it worked like a charm.

My dvr freezes. i have picture and sound but unable to change the channel or anything dealing with the dvr. i have to manually push the system info button on the box then select done with the remote. ...

Believe it or not, this could be a simple battery problem in your remote. When my battery is low in my remote, some buttons will work and some not. I'd try replacing the batteries in the remote first. If that doesn't work, I would guess that you need a new remote. Sounds like your DVR works fine manually, so chances are that's not the problem.
Hope this helps.

My remote keeps freezing and i have to take the battery out to restart. Now when I put the battery in it says safe mode. What can I do now

Hi. If your remote is freezing all the time, the firmware probably needs to be updated. Doing this will also get the remote out of safe mode.

1- Click on 'Downloads' at the top of the screen in the software.
2- Click 'Firmware' and follow the steps to update the firmware on the remote.
3- Update the remote.

Hope that helps

Harmony One USB Connection Problem on Vista PC

HI. So there are a couple of things you will have to ensure for the connectivity to be successful.

1. You are not connected to the internet via a router

2. You are not on a wireless network

3. Any firewalls on your computer are disabled

4. Your USB cable and port are good, and the remote is not connected to a USB hub but right into the compter.

Now, please do the following:

1. Uninstall the software

2. Download it again at
3. Install
4. In your computer's add/remove programs, uninstall the Logitech Desktop Messenger

5. Take out the battery, press and hold the "OFF" button, and re-insert it. The remote will display "Safe Mode"

6. Connect your remote and log in to your account

7. Click "Downloads" at the top and select "Firmware". The firmware on the remote will update.

8. Click "Replace Remote" to conduct a connectivity check.

9. Update the remote.

That should get the remote working. :)
