Remote and buttons on tv do not work

The problem started with getting the favorites popping up on screen and then the channel would change all by itself. This would repeatedly happen. We have the TV hooked up to a VCR DVD player and when watching movies this will happen. Then it started to slowly the remote would not work. We used the buttons on the set and now they do not work.

Re: remote and buttons on tv do not work

There could be a few issues at play here. The first and most common would be a spill in the front of the unit or excessive Windex has dripped off the screen and down on the keypad causing corrosion. If there are shorts on that board they can lock the micro and the remote is useless as well.

The other, and more expensive issue would be a bad micro controller all together.

My Insignia TV has a blue screen with parental cotrol the problem is I don't have a Control to pres display how can I unlock it???? HELP:(

When an Insignia TV is locked, it keeps you from watching all of your channels by only displaying a black screen. Insignia TVs are locked from a single button command on the remote control, so it is easy for you to lock the TV by accident. Since Insignia TVs can be locked so easily, it's important to know how to undo this command and unlock the TV yourself. So, unlock your Insignia TV with the push of a button and once again enjoy watching your favorite programs.
· Find the lock button on the Insignia remote control. The lock button is located on the third column from the left on the second row from the top of the remote.

·Stand within operating range of the Insignia TV, then aim the remote at the TV's receiver and press the "Lock" button on the remote control.
· Aim the remote at the TV and press the channel buttons to make sure the TV is unlocked. When the TV is locked, it shows a black screen and does not allow you to view anything else. If the screen remains black, press the "Lock" button again. If this doesn't work, change the batteries in the remote and start over at step

I lost the remote to my Toshiba cz27t31. I bought an RCA universal remote. The RCA manual says the tv should be set to channel 1. But I can't change the channel without the remote. So I am SOL! How...

  • You have to set the channel you want as a favorite first and you can do this from the TV. This is why the channels skip as you press up and down. Sometime or another those were someones favorite channels.
  1. Press "MENU" on the TV until "SET UP" appears on the screen.
  2. Now press ^ or v until "FAVORITE CH" appears in purple.
  3. Now press < or > to display the favorite channel FAVORITE CH menu.
  4. You will use < or > to got between "SET and "CLEAR."
  5. So now go to "SET" and press ^ or v until you get to channel 1.
  6. If you want to delete a channel first then select "CLEAR" and then add the channel you wish.
  • What your doing when you push the channel up and down on the TV buttons is going through the favorite channels. So make one of the favorite channels channel 1 and program your remote.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Front panel buttons and remote have stopped working.

Is the favorite channel menu a function that is normally accessed by a button on the remote?

If so, that button on the remote might be stuck.
If this is the case, the menu may at times pop up all by itself and other buttons on the remote and on the TV's front panel may not respond at all (it had happened on my remotes more than once).

Try to clean the remote control (the housing, rubber pad with knobs, circuit board) with ethyl alcohol, when you clean the housing, you should also clean the holes through which the buttons protrude, there might be some dirt that keeps the button stuck.

It may also be a stuck button on the TV front panel, so check these too.

Also, it could be something else, i just wrote the description of a problem and the solution which to me seemed most likely.

Hope you get it fixed.

Favorites Keep Coming On

Check to see if the lower buttons are stuck. You should feel a 'click' when you depress them. If one of them is stuck... you found the problem. Now you need to fix it. All you need to do is pull on the plastic button just a little to give some spring back to it. Or try a needle with a bit of a hook on it. Side it in the right side of the button and pull the button forward. Just be careful not to pull it to far. Just enough to correct to position.
Do you spray windex on the face of the tube??

Ghost in the channel selector

the problems due to the microprocessor on the remote reciever present inside the tv .i think the remote is normal working. as the only problem with your iinfra red reciever microprocessor.microcontroler circuit. Replace the IC to solve this. Check electrolytic capacitor coupled to the memory block of the micro processor. Contact service if you are not well verse doing all this rectification works. it is off high risk and caution
thank you !
