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!

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.

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.

No Remote control


A fairly common problem with these sets is that the connections to the IR receiver inside the set degrade. Quite often all that is required is a resoldering of the pins of the receiver. This is a 3 legegd part within a small metal box located near the fron of the TV. If you have no experience with TVs, do not attempt this. I would guess that a TV shop would be willing to resolder the pins on this for not much money. Call and ask. It might be a cheap fix for you. Cleaning the lens of the remote will have no effect.

IR sensor bad. How can it be fixed?


You may be spot on with your analysis. If you have a new IR receiver installed it may cost around $100 plus or minus to do so.

However, first, make sure the eye lens is not covered or dirty. Clean it off with a soft tissue to remove any oily film or other dirt or smoke. Then aim the remote very carefully with the original remote control (with good batteries; make sure) and slowly move away checking its function. If it does not operate from at least 10 feet is is substandard. (Be sure there are nothing obstructing the IR beam to reach through the IR eye). ---------- You can get the new ir sensor from electronics shop dealing in tv parts just get the exact model number of tv.and brand name.

Toshiba CF32H50-no control from remote


Could be the remote does not operate on the correct frequency, but also may be the IR reciever sensor inside the TV, best bet is to bring your remote to a pawn shop and try it on a set there (they sell older model sets look till you find one like yours). once you determine the remote is OK, check the IR sensor for bad solder connection or replace it by soldering a new one in. Also some Toshibas develop micro CPU issue (the computer IC), another thing you can try is cleaning the main board control area with electrical cleaner residue can load down the control circuits but then the buttons would also malfunction.
