Question about Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop

WMC PC and TV no longer communcating by remote

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.

Any suggestions?

Bush lcd42f1080p100hz remote will not turn tv 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!!

Westinghouse tv turns off with rmote but cannot be turned on unless button on tv itself is used


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.

This is all I found. If this tuner isn't digital ready chances are there isn't going to be much support for this and you will have to get a new one by next February.

Here is the current software link:
