SOURCE: Marantz SR5200 receiver works only with remote not manually

Check for a stuck/jammed switch, press each switch if one doesn't make a normal click sound or it doesn't move at all that's your problem.
If that's not it check the owners manual for how to reset the receiver (not all manuals will tell you how to reset it) Another way to reset it is to short the memory cap, but that is better left to a tech.

My pioneer pro 1140hd elite remote is not functioning. A spare remote doesnt' work either so it must be the tv itself. How to fix?

If the remotes have both been tested (shops can check with a tester all buttons) you may have a remote receiver in the set that is bad--some the remote will not work or only works with remote very close to set.

Many digital cameras in a very dark room will react the same way when a remote is pointed at them and buttons pressed---a faint flash on the camera display.

My remote is fine, but i don't know which button to push or sequence once I've changed batteries to for it to work the receiver. Each time I change the batteries it doesn't interact with the receiver, but...

Hi there,

It's likely that you've pressed one of the input mode buttons accidentally while changing the batteries. You've probably switched the remote for operation of a TV or DVD player or some other device.

To correct this problem, simply press the RECEIVER (TAPE/AMP) button once, then try the remote again. Pressing this button informs the remote that you wish to operate the receiver with it again. The RECEIVER button is about halfway down the left-hand side, above the TV button and below MACRO 1.

Please try this first. If the receiver still does not respond, switch the receiver off and back on again. It may have lost the communication with the remote. Resetting the receiver will usually correct this problem.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Remote control stopped working.

Hi forlillis,

1. Make sure there are fresh batteries in the remote, and they are installed correctly.
2. Make sure the area between the remote control and receiver is not blocked by some object,
and the distance is no more than 15 feet at an angle no greater than 30 degrees from the
front of the receiver.
3. Make sure strong lighting is not directed towards the IR sensor of the receiver.
4. Press each button on the remote and verify proper operation.
If these steps are taken and remote control still does not function properly 
5. This step discharges the capacitor and resets the remote control. (You do not need to point
the remote control at the receiver or even have the receiver turned on.)
A: AVR35  Press the TV and the M4 buttons at the same time and hold for 12 seconds.
To Test: Make sure your AVR35 is ON, press each button on the remote and verify
proper operation of your receiver.

Let me know how it went.

Since our neighbors got DishNetwork our second TV randomly changes channels. Can I program to a different frequency?

this is due to a " remote war" you will need to cahnge your tv remote adress to a differnt number: Dual-Tuner receivers can have the same remote address for both, but ONLY if one remote is IR and the other is UHF.
Note: If you start this procedure and at any time do not press a button within 20 seconds, the remote will end the procedure automatically. Simply start over again. Other UHF and UHF Pro receivers should be powered off before beginning.
  1. Verify the remote is a DISH Network remote. Look for the DISH Network logo on the bottom of the remote and Mode buttons or lights at the top. Why?

      We have the codes for all DISH Network remotes and would be happy to help you with your DISH Network manufactured remote. Please contact the manufacturer of your remote for further assistance. Detailed instructions may be included in the owners' manual that came with your equipment. If not, there may be a toll-free technical support number listed.

  2. If using a remote with Indicator Tab (3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 5.2, 5.3, 6.0, 6.2, 6.3) verify the Tab is configured for the correct receiver operation. How to?

    Green Indicator Tab with a green 1 Green Indicator Tab with a black 1 Green Indicator Tab with a green 1 UHF Blue Indicator Tab Black Indicator Tab Silver Indicator Tab IR UHF Pro Only UHF Pro Only UHF Pro Only UHF & IR UHF Pro Only 522, 625, 942
    TV1 942 only
    TV 522, 625 only
    TV1 522, 625, 942
    TV2 501, 508, 510, 721 381, 811, 921
      Reconfigure Remote
      1. Remove battery cover.
      2. Confirm remote is configurable. Note: if remote label says "IR", it can NOT be reconfigured.
      3. Place thumb nail between the colored piece, above the number, and the body of the remote. Pull down towards the bottom of the remote.
      4. Turn colored piece over to desired format and reinsert until a "snap" is heard.
      5. Replace battery cover.

  3. With the receiver on, press the Info or System Info button on the front panel,
    if not present remove the Smart Card and wait 5-10 sec,
    if no Smart Card power the receiver off from the front panel and press the up or down arrow button.
    System info will appear on screen. (This procedure is not applicable for the DISHPlayer or the DishDVR 721)
  4. Press and hold the SAT button (about six seconds) until all mode button backlights come on, then release.
  5. Use the number buttons to enter a number from 1 to 15. The light will blink off after each digit is entered and then return to a steady light.
  6. Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the SAT mode light flashes three times.
  7. Press the Record button. The number in the Remote Address field should match the one you input.
  8. To verify the code, press and hold the SAT mode button until the mode lights come on. Then press the POUND (#) button twice. The light will flash the address.
  9. Reinsert Smart Card
