If remote control is working, just do a hard reset to your TV; and check. Hopes it will help you.
There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight; will be better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

SOURCE: weak or no signal message

  1. Since my problem (Samsung/Comcast) began with a channel selection button pushed on the TV remote when it should have been pushed on the cable remote, I figured the problem lay with the TV.  Although I was getting the "weak or no signal" msg., the actual signal strength bar graphic showed it to be strong. Disconnecting did no good. I surmised that the TV was simply not recognizing the box.
  2. I looked at the manual for my Samsung 750 model. 
  3. Page 20 discussed "Selecting the source". I accessed the TV menu and selected "Input", then chose the "HD..." item from the highlighted list. Voila! My tv works again.

SOURCE: Stopped receiving sky on second tv - does my samsung need a reset

I install a lot of magic eyes etc.

You have checked that the magic eye lights up when it is connected directly into the sky box. So your eye is working correctly.

the next step I would take is with your sky remote in your main room. press SERVICES, 4, 0,1, SELECT go to RF settings and check the rf channel and make sure the power is on. Take a mental note of the channel number.

Now go into the room where the link is feeding. Turn on the TV and go to channel number 6 press your MENU button and then go down to setup. go across to manual install and then down to the channel number type in what you retrieved from you box ie rf channel and then type it in and STORE.

If you go into your main room and just put the normal tv guide on ie blue screen. then check that your getting the sky into the other room. IF you are then great it just needed tuning in. IF not I would remake the coax connectors. as there may be a bit of copper braid touching the centre core. once this is done your sky should be on all you need to do now is put the eye back on. Once you have done this the red light should appear on your magic eye. if not go to your main box and follow the first instructions I gave you and turn the power off on the RF and then save and then go back in and turn it back on and save.

Hope this sorts out your problem

Cheers

Turn your Sony Bravia on by pushing either the power button on the front of the TV or the power button on the remote control, which is located in the upper right corner of the remote.


  • 2 Press and hold the "up arrow" button on the remote control. The up arrow button is located in the middle of the remote, to the left of the "Input" button and below the "Picture" button.
  • 3 Press the power button on the TV while still holding down the up arrow button. The TV will turn off and then turn itself back on.
  • 4 Release the up arrow button. Once the TV turns itself back on, it will restore your Sony Bravia to its factory settings.

    • Reset component settings. Usually, the problems you encounter with a projection TV may be resolved through the resetting to its factory settings. If you experience inaccuracies in the color, reset the television's PerfectTint/PerfectColor capabilities. Simply press the Menu tab and then highlight "Perfect Color" using your right key arrow. After this, press "Enter" and then "Reset" in order to reset to factory settings. If you have audio / video problems (VCR or DVD player), simply press "Menu" and highlight the "Reset" option.
    • Reset television controls. In case you cannot fix your TV via its component settings, there are other ways of resetting. Just select "Menu", key in "1, 2, 3", and then press "Enter." In doing this, the TV's manufacturer's specifications will all be restored. If your TV's power system does not function, you should perform a complete system reset. You can do this by clicking on Reset System button located at the TV's control panel. Your television will be turned off and then a green light (LED) will quickly flash for approximately one minute. Once the light has stopped flashing, your TV should immediately turn on.
    Use your remote control. The first step is to inspect the batteries of the remote control and see if they are functioning. If its power button starts to blink several times once you turned it on, then the batteries need to be replaced. See to it that your remote control is used within about 20 feet from the television. Make sure also that nothing blocks the space between the remote control and the receiver.

Make sure also that nothing blocks the space between the remote control and the receiver.
    • Check the fan. Once the television is turned off, it is just normal for its fan to become louder. A projection TV actually depends on its lamp, which requires cooling so that it will not prematurely burn out. If the room where your TV is placed is very hot, the fan would also continue to run.
    • Replace projection lamp. To properly do this, make sure that the lamp's bulb has cooled down and the TV is unplugged. Carefully remove the cover of the lamp's compartment using your screwdriver (Phillips-head). Unscrew the sealed part of the lamp that can be found at the television's rear part. Take away the old lamp cartridge and then insert a new one. Seal the lamp with screws, replace its cover and then screw tightly.
      • Reset component settings. Usually, the problems you encounter with a projection TV may be resolved through the resetting to its factory settings.

    I received an LG 32LX4DC Flat Panel Television from a hotel. It came with a control box LG LST-4100A. I saw on fixya.com the method to access the installer menu. However, I could not get the hidden menu...


    Just an FYI if anyone is having this same problem a factory reset will solve the issue.Follow the above directions... "1. Press MENU repeatedly till it seems to not respond. 2. Enter 2-6-6-3 on the remote then Enter 3. At the top, it says ENTER PASSWORD 0000 4. Enter 9-8-7-6 then Enter 5. Installer Menu comes up scroll through the options until you see "factory reset" change the value from a 0 to a 1 with the arrow keys and then power the TV off. When you turn it back on it should be reset to factory defaults.

    Can't seem to switch to input with the remote or go to any channel to use my DVD player


    Hello

    Check first if the Remote Control hanset emits infrared rays or not. Infrared rays are invisioblw to us. There is an easy way to check it. if you have a cellphone with camera option, set it to camera mode, and place the remote hanset against its lens about 1 feet away or so, and press each button on the remote control. You can see the infrared indication on the screen of your cellphone.
    If it is Ok, just reset the remote control.

    You might need to reset the remote: remove batteries and press the number 1 button for at least 60
    seconds. Release the 1 button, replace the batteries, and (if necessary) program the remote again.

    Check also for

    Something might be between the remote and the remote sensor on the component. Make sure there is a

    clear path.

    • Maybe the remote isn't aimed directly at the component (DVD, TV, VCR) that you're trying to operate.

    • Maybe remote is not in TV Mode. Press the TV button so remote will control TV.

    • Maybe batteries in remote are weak, dead, or installed incorrectly. Put new batteries in the remote. (Note,
    if you remove the batteries, you may have to reprogram the remote to operate other components.)

    How to Use the Remote Control to Complete

    the Initial Setup


    The technical term is "Navigation"- how you move through the

    on-screen menus. The method is the same throughout the menu

    screens: highlight your choice and select it.

    To highlight a menu item, press the arrow buttons on the remote

    to highlight one of the items listed on the screen. Use the up or

    down arrow button to move up or down. Use the right or left

    arrow button to move right or left.

    To select the item that you've highlighted, press OK.

    Note: Highlighted means that the menu item stands out from other
    menu items on the list (appears darker, brighter, or a different color).

    Turn on the TV

    Press TV on the remote, or press POWER on the TV's front panel.

    Note: Pressing the TV button not only turns on the TV, but puts the remote

    into TV mode. "TV mode" means that the buttons on the remote control

    operate the TV's functions.


    Complete the Initial Setup


    The menu system in your TV allows the TV's features to work

    properly. The first time you turn on your TV, the SETUP screen

    appears with Language highlighted. The default language is

    English. To choose another language, press the right arrow
    button on the remote.

    If these doesn't work, the infrared sensor inside your Tv has got damaged and should be replaced. OK.

    My Sharp Remote Control Is Suddenly Stop Working


    Ok I just dealt with the Sharp customer support for this problem.

    1) You need to unplug the TV for 1 full minute and remove the batteries from your remote aswell (this will reset the system)
    2) Hold the power button on the remote for 30 seconds with the batteries still out of the remote and the TV still unplugged
    3) After the 30 seconds replace batteries then press every button on the remote beginning with the power button in order from left to right and top to bottom (same way you read)
    4) Then plug your tv back in and try the remote again.... and the remote and TV should be back in sync.
