I have a five year old wharfedale tv. It is slow to respond to the remote after it has been on for half an hour or so.

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.
Search the site by type in this key phrase "how to test a remote control "in the "search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get the related post quickly. [open and clean] [open and clean]

The TV will not respond to the remote control unless it is very close and in a certain place. How can this be fixed?

The first thing to do is determine if it is a problem with the remote's transmitter or the TV's receiver. To do that, you'll need a different remote capable of controlling the TV. This can be a replacement universal type, one borrowed from someone with the same TV - or bringing your remote into a store that sells these TVs (and has them on display). Try to control the display TV with your remote.

If you can work the store TV with your remote - then the problem is with your TV. If you can't work it - then either the TV will not respond to your remote due to being a different model / year / etc. (this does happen from time to time) or you've got a faulty remote. Before leaving the store - look for a universal remote. RCA and others make them and they can be had for under $20. Check the packaging to see if your TV is compatible and buy it. Save your receipt.

Bring it home to see if it can be programmed for your TV. If your TV is supported but it fails to control the TV - the problem is likely to be with your TV. If it does control the TV, the problem is likely to be with your original remote.

I do not recommend opening the TV to try to "fix" it. Bring it to be serviced or deal with it another way (cable box, etc.). If it is the remote - which I suspect - you *may* be able to open the remote *carefully* and see if the LED behind the red plastic lens is aimed away (from dropping, etc.). If it is - bend it to point straight out of the remote and reassemble. If it works - bring the new universal remote back for a refund. If it doesn't - toss the old remote and use the new one. :-)

Just get into the Wharfedale site and upgrade it with latest software available, that suit to your DVD-M3. It will take some time, say about an Hour to complete the donload and installation. Don't stop as download stops, the softwre must be installed, and it will happen only after the full download. After sucessfull download, the set will propt you that has done sucessfully. Till then, never switch off the net connection, or do nothing at set end. If installation is not successful, the fault you describe here will occur. OK.

Try this. Open up your pc cam then point the remote straight at the cam. You should see pulsating light on the computer screen as you look at the cams video. This tells you ar least that the remote is working fine.

Tv not responding to new remote control

Was the replacement remote identical to the original one; or, does it need to be programmed. Also, if your replaced your old remote because it was not working, it might be that the IR sensor on your TV is bad.

Need new remote

Hey you should try finding an exact replacement for this ilo hdtv. If you have your model number for your ILO hdtv you can go to a website like and look through their catalog for a new replacement remote control, which is the exact same remote you got in the box with your ILO TV and should work right out of the box, unlike most universal remote controls. If they can't help, there are alot of other major replacement remote companies out there! Hope I helped!
