One day, the WMC is working fine. The next, not so much. After using it, I used the remote's PC power button to turn the TV display off, and then I turned the TV off, like always.
The next day, I turn on the TV, press the PC power button, which usually causes the WMC to display on the screen, but nothing happens.The remote is apparently not communicating with the PC. However, it still communicates with the TV itself and with the sound receiver, as the volume buttons still work and the TV will turn on and off. So the problem is only with the remote and its connection to the PC.
I restarted. I checked the cord that runs from the PC's USB port to theTV screen, and that is secure. The red light on the IR receiver lightsup when I press any button on the remote.
The only problem is that the remote will not tell the PC to display. The PC will shut down and restart just fine.

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!!
How old are the batteries in the remotes? The on/off signal from the remote is the same. There is some lattitude in the IR reciever module for what it accepts. Low battereis may be shifting the signal's frequency or light intensity enough for it to not be recognized.
If sunlight is failing on the sensor or the remote's IR emitter, that can cause interference. Other IR devices can also interfere with the IR signal such as a "Remote Extender" being used for something else.
It may sound odd, but if your remote was working one day and not the next- was the room rearranged? If so, look around for possible sources of interference blocking the beam from the remote, or shining or reflecting light onto the IR reciever module in the set.
Acer's IR ports works only for Remote control and certain compitable devices only. its not open port for all devices. It cant be used for other pheripherals as far as i know! If its bluetooth then it can work surely.
