You may have gunk built up in the remote if it is old. i pulled my remote apart, and cleaned under the rubber number pad. i used alcohol to clean the contacts on the pad and on the circuit board. it worked after that. the only other thing i can think of is that one of your batteries is not making contact.

Vcr remote control not working.


Hi! Bella , more research needed .... do you match each remote to its own VCR model?...did they ever work ?...have you put batteries in wrong polarity ?...are the VCR's at fault or blinded by ambient light ?.....are you pointing remotes correctly ?.....try your remotes on dealer's VCR's @ his shop & get dealer to try his remotes on your VCR's , or find a friend with same gear & do the tests there.......that should identify the problem[s] .... take careful notes of the results... & go from there.......jimbanjo

Vizio remote xrv1tv doesn' t work. it doesn't do nothing. i replaced batteries.what can i do? used to work perfect almost 2 years. do i need to set up the control? how? thanks


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. If found no infrared emission, check its battery compartment, and clean the battery contacts. If battery contacts have been accumulated with dust or dirt, the remote won't work, as there will be no supply to its internal circuit. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/. Check this link. It has one post, that describes how to check and repair a remote control. Pull up older posts there.

My remote won't set to the tv I tried pressing the set button and it didn't work then I replaced the batteries to see if that would work but it didn't and now I don't know what to do please...


Hello
You might have a cellphone with camera option. Set the cellphone co cemera mode, and place the remote control at about 1 feet away from its camera lens, and press each button on your remote control. Remote control emits infrared rys as we press each button, but can't be detected by human eye. Electronic cameras can detect it. If there is any infrared ray emission from your remote control you will see its image on the camera screen for each button press to your remote control. If there is image and still the Tv doesn't respond to it, The TVs' infrared snsor inside has damaged and should be replaced. If there isn't any image; check the battery contacts of the remote battery compartment first. Clean these contacts by using a piece of corborandum paper or with the tip of a razor blade. Improper battery contacts, due to rust and dust to these contacts will prevent the battery supply voltage to enter into the remote contro.
Still it doesn't work at all, the remote control is damged and should be replaced. Contact the nearest Vizio Authorised Service Cente fro original remote control. OK.

My remote wont work it says set 1


You can try this simple idea; to re-code the remote to your unit, press and hold 1 and ENTER/OK buttons together for 5 - 10 seconds, then release. This should restore the remote command to match the unit, and thus the remote should work. Failing that, replace the batteries in the remote with new ones, and repeat the above suggested procedure.

If the remote is triggering 'SET 1' on the unit's display, this simply means the remote code is different to the unit, and hence the remote requires a reset to restore control to it whenever the batteries are replaced. Easy enough to fix, doesn't take very long, and should not cost anything except some new batteries if required.

I have changed the batteries in my Bose remote an d it sill does not work. What should I do? Thank You!


you have to put a camera ( cellphone camera is OK ) in front of the remote control and then press any button on the remote control . if there was a light coming from the lens ( lens of the remote control) ( you have to see the light only from the camera screen) then the remote is ok , else the remote is broken
