Question about Radio Shack (15-2147) Remote Control

1 Answer

I have a Radio Shack 15-135 and everything has been fine until today. Suddenly a black square appeared on the screen hiding most of the picture. The picture appears for a moment and then the black square, that looks like the black behind the menue screen. Everything is working well but I can't get rid of the black screen. Any suggestions?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a RadioShack cat no. 15-135 is a 7-in-1 Universal HD Remote Control.  Although presumably it is used in conjunction with an HD TV, it would be a TV concern together with the remote.

Please potsback with the brand & model number of the TV.

Still, in other instances, similar issues could be attributed to Closed Caption, Text or PIP (picture-in-picture) features of the TV. Disabling / turning these features OFF normally resolves the problem.

Would appreciate an update.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Your unit is in calibration mode. There should be a black dot to press on the calibration screen. Keep pressing the dot as it moves around the screen, you may need to press very firmly and use a stylus until it says calibration complete.
This usually occurs when a unit is dropped or left in extreme temperatures or jammed it a glove box or console with things jammed against the screen. It could also occur if you are touching the screen as you start.

Take the adapter back to the guys at radio shack, they should be able to find what they missed or did wrong the first time.
I suspect the adapter is the power supply and plugs into the wall. That's the item that wouldn't let it turn on, it's either shorted or one of the wires are no longer connected.

You may have a blown internal fuse. You''ll need to unplug the unit, remove the outside cover and follow the line cord and you should find the fuse.

Replace it with the EXACT same value that was labeled on the original fuse. You'll probably be able to find a replacement at any Radio Shack store or hardware store.

Replace the cover and plug the unit back in. Hopefully nothing was damaged and the unit will play again.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
