Tv not responding to remote and now will not turn back on!

I had come home about a week ago and pushed the power button from my remote but my tv did not respond. So I just went to the front panel and pushed power but once the tv turned on, the volume was on full blast! I used the front panel volume decrease to get the volume down, but when I stopped pushing the button, the tv increased its volume to full blast again by itself! Naturally I just turned the tv off for a few moments. I tried the remote again, no response again, so I used the panel power button. The tv volume was still full blast when it turned on but after I decreased the volume it stayed this time. The picture is and has been perfectly fine and the tv was working fine. The next day the problem started all over and now once we turned it off from frustration of having to manually use the panel to change channels, it now will not turn on at all. I have changed batteries from my remote, reprogrammed my remote, pushed system reset several times, unplugged it for a while, bought a new surge charge, and even held the menu and device panel buttons for 10 sec and tried to turn the t.v. on again! What other options do I have or what may be the issue at hand and possible parts that may need to be replaced?? Thanks!!

    Exact repair info would be greatly appreciated. How sure would you say you are on a scale from 1-10, 10 being 100% sure? Just curious and I just wanted to stress that my picture has no and has not had any issues, just what I stated about the volume and the tv not coming on at all now. Thanks!!!

    Top of the remote control shows "audio" when the power button is pushed. Usually it shows "TV "

Front panel buttons (switches) are the usual suspect. Disconnect the wires going to the front panel, plug Tv in, wait a minute, use remote to turn on. This has solved many equivalent problems.

Here is how to do so for similar model WS-65611:
1. Remove the Speaker Grilles and Unit Front by pulling forward.
2. Remove 2 screws (a) to remove the Control Panel.
3. Remove the Board Front by removing 4 screws (b).
4. Remove the 4 screws (c) holding the Screen Assembly.
5. Lift the Screen Assembly up and away from the cabinet.

Dell TV not responding to remote


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.

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

Goog day. I have a Samsung LE40A559 LCD TV and about a week ago it stopped responding to the remote. Remote itself is working as when the TV is off and I push buttons on the remote the blue light on TV...


The flashing blue light shows that the TV is receiving I.R. from the remote but doesn't mean that the signal being received is recognized by the Samsung. If you have a "universal" remote then your TV code may need to be re-entered/reprogrammed...changing batteries in a "universal" will usually require it to be reprogrammed.

Also...because of the remotes construction (rubber membranes with carbon dots that short across PC traces) I've seen certain buttons stop working altogether.

My remote Stopped working with my TV but still works with DVD player. I have a new universal remote and it will not work as well, what part Do I need to replace?


You may want to try a “Hard Rest” by unplugging the power from the TV.
While the TV is without power, one at a time, push on each of the buttons on the TV & listen to hear them click (there may be a button stuck down).
After at least a few minutes have passed, plug the TV back in. Sometimes the TV may power on by itself and other times it will may not. If the TV did not power on by itself, push the button on the TV to power on the unit.
After the unit has power on wait about 30 seconds. Now point a known working remote at the TV and see if it is working correctly. You could test your LG remote on another LG TV at home, a neighbor’s house, and or at a store.
If the TV does respond by using the buttons on the TV but not with remote control, the problem could be with the following.
Remote Eye board and or the Main board.
I hope my information has helped you.
Good Luck.

Trying installing a new power supply. This is the main problem with tv's with the issue. But if you just bought it I would try to get my money back from where I bought it from. Installing a power supply for a tv is not that hard at all.

My remote is not responding to the tv even i have changed the new baterry


Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

NOTE:
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

clip_image001.jpg
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

hope this may help;

Regards,

TV remote will not work properly


I have a Mitsubishi WD-52725 TV, too, and have experienced the same problems with it. My solution to the remote not responding is to push the reset button on the front of the TV (to the left of the Power button) with a paper clip and wait for the green light to stop blinking (about 1 minute). Then, turn it back on and try the remote again. Recently, my remote stopped responding when pushing certain buttons on it. I removed the batteries, and all of the little screws including the one inside the battery compartment and gently cleaned the contacts inside the remote and the circuit board with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. After putting it back together, it works fine now.
