SOURCE: CODE FOR TCL TV UNIVERSAL REMOTE CONTOL-CHUNGHOP RM -133E

If you don't have a code you can do these steps to get your universal remote working with pretty much any tv:

1.) Turn your TV on. Then on your remote press the set button, it's the small gray button above the green button that says TV.

2.) Press the TV button. There should be a red light to the right of the SET button. This means that your remote is ready for the TV code.

3.) To find the TV code, press the + or - on your remote. This is located above the orange buttons. Once the volume on your TV goes up or down, stop pressing the + or - button.

4.) Then press the SET button again to set that code for your TV.

If the above steps do not work, keep trying. It will work! ;)

SOURCE: IR remote 103781- Looking for control code for the INSIGNA TV

If you have tried locating your tv type in the back of the manual that came with the receiver and can not locate it then chances are that the remote does not ssupport your TV. You can try finding the code by doing a power scan as follows to see if one not associated with your tv will work: With the TV on press and hold the TV button on the top left of the remote until all buttons light up across the top. Now preess the small red tv button-the topTV button on the left of the remote should stay lit. Now press the channel up button slowly until the tv shuts off. If it does press the channel down button and then the channel up button. The tv should now turn on. If it has press the pound sign and release. The tv button will flash three times. Now try powering the tv on and off. You should be sucessful. Remember to put the remote back into SATmode. Thanks for using Fix Ya. Let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: Dish IR Remote 20.0 has problems after sunset.

The problem for me was the TV giving off IR signals that interfered with DISH's poorly designed remote. When the TV's room ambient light sensor was turned on and it became dusk outside the DISH remote would stop working. Moving the receiver away from the TV helps but the problem is not eliminated until the light sensor is turned off.
Until DISH corrects this poor design there may be no other viable solution.

SOURCE: Dish Network IR Remote's SAT Mode Not Working ____

Hello, this is Nick Franta with DISH.

If you are trying to get the remote programmed to the receiver you can remove the smartcard from the receiver and that will prompt the system info screen. This will allow you to program the remote to the receiver.

If you need the process for programming the remote, here it is:

  1. Go to System Info screen (in this case -- obtain by removing smartcard from receiver)
  2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
  4. Press the pound (#) button
  5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Problem with remote control or TV sensor? (Sanyo lcd32xr8da)

From your detailed description, I assumes that the infrared sensor inside your TV has the fault. This part can be loacated just behind the infrared sensor window at the front panel of the TV. You have to open the TV, and desolder it out from position, note the type used, and repalce it. There are so many types of these. Pictures of some are attached here.

My remotes won't work. Apparently the remote sensor is not working. This TV does not have a remote in plug on the back. Any ideas?


I have the same TV, but I don't understand what you mean about 'both remotes' or 'remote in plug on the back'. Do you mean a smart remote, the receiver for which connects via the USB?

The original remote uses the IR receiver on the TV. The smart remote only uses IR for the On/Off function; all other controls go via USB.

It is possible that the IR receiver in the TV has failed (I have replaced several on other devices). This is a cheap component, easily replaced by a competent solderer.

Directv remote and LG remote will not control tv, just receiver


Let's start simple first. Your TV is not responding to either remote control, but specifically if your factory original LG remote does not operate the LG TV, then the problem could be with the IR receiver in the TV itself.

Ensure nothing is blocking the IR receiver on the TV. Move anything out of the way.

Test both remotes to ensure that they are sending an infrared IR signal to the TV. Use a digital camera (such as the one on your phone) and point the remote into the camera lense and press the power/volume/channel buttons. You should see a faint flashing light in your camera viewfinder. This indicates that the remote is sending IR signal. If you don't see anything, then there is no signal. Try FRESH batteries.

If your remotes are working, and since this is an LG, look at the back of the TV by the video inputs. Look for a port called "REMOTE CONTROL IN" or similar. It looks like a 3.5mm headphone jack. This port is used for external remote control and may be dirty.

UNPLUG the TV, then use a regular 3.5mm male headphone jack to plug in and out several times. You basically want to push all the way in and all the way out several times to dislodge any dust and remove any oxidation that has built up in the port. 10-15 times should do fine.

Then plug in the TV and try your remote.

Best of luck.

Hi Robert, my name is Cheri Torres and I work on the Social Media Team at DISH. It sounds like your remote is experiencing IR(Infrared) interference from your LG TV. You can resolve this issue by converting your TV1 remote to UHF(Ultra High Frequency) instead of IR. In order to do this you will need a UHF remote, the 20.0 remote is only an IR remote. Please email me directly at Cheri.Torres@Dish.com with your account number or phone number on the account so that I can look into getting a UHF remote sent out. Thank you.

I have a nuwire for my remote controls for mulitiple items and i can't get it to work on my dish network system


romaneastwoo,

What type receiver is your TV connected to? Do you know your remote model number - located on back of the remote at the top (ex. 2 digit number 5.3 ir). The majority of our TV 1 remotes work in IR mode. If this universal remote uses UHF frequency, it will not work for the IR frequency. Please let me know your receiver and remote types and I will see if there is anything we can do for this remote.

I have a 60 inch lg tv. The remote just stopped working Put in new batteries. Tv button lights up on remote but will not turn tv on.


Let me know model number of your 60 inch LG tv to find out possible cause of no remote operation.
I do not think that IR receiver is bad in your tv. Regarding dusty IR receiver lens, you can confirm it by sending remote signal by very close distance to tv.
There are few other possibilities of no remote operation problem instead of bad IR receiver.
