Remote won,t work all functions for yamaha 70cu sound bar

The remote isn't working


A few things to try:
1) Make sure Batts. are in correctly.
2) check in all around the sides back and under the sound bar for a reset button.
3) Clean the IR emitter on the remote and the receiver on the bar. On the remote it will be a reddish plastic window or a small bulb looking thing on the front. The receiver may be harder to find. I suggest just giving the entire front of the sound bar a good cleaning. I have had remotes stop working because there was to much dust built up on the receiver. I have also found that my kids handled the remote with dirty fingers and had gotten peanut butter on the emitter! Good Luck!

Ambient remote control 5884 won't turn fireplace on and off


  • Make sure your valve is in the "on" position and not "pilot".
  • Install fresh batteries in both remote and receiver (remotes are finicky about good batteries.
  • Ensure the switch on your receiver is in the "remote" position.
  • Follow manual to re-sync handheld to receiver if necessary.
  • A burner not lighting could also be the fault of the appliance (bad thermopile). Check this too, and replace if needed.
  • Replace remote if necessary: Universal Fireplace Remotes

My remote will not cut on my Bose Cinemate system. I have changed the batteries in my remote and the red light on the receiver is illuminated, so I know the system is operational, . I've also unplugged...


It seems to be a common misconception that the remote is necessary to turn a device on. All devices have hard-wired power controls. Does THAT work? It is unclear which device (remote or the Cinemate) is malfunctioning. If the Cinemate won't turn on by its own power switch the remote won't magically bypass whatever the problem is.

The Cinemate Manual offers some steps to take if it won't turn on, as well as other guidance.

Polk Audio DSW Pro 500 remote doesn't"t work. I've tried replacing the battery and was told by another technician to take the sub-woofer out and make sure the cable is plugged up to the amp and the IR...


Is this NEW? Or did it just fail spontaneously after working for awhile?

Is this just a remote control issue or is the sub dead, too?

From the manual...

No sound coming from subwoofer.

If hookup is "SUB OUT" to LFE, check and make sure your receiver is set to Subwoofer=YES. If hookup is via speaker wire, check that the polarity of the wires is correct.

Subwoofer has no power.

Is the AC MAIN switch on? Check outlet; check fuse after unplugging the subwoofer. The fuse is located under the power cord
receptacle. Fuse type and rating is found on the back panel.

Remote control doesn't work.

Remove the plastic tab to activate the remote control's battery or try replacing the battery. Ensure the IR sensor is not blocked.

If it's a new problem with a previously working remote...

It describes a way to possibly fix your remote or at least prove it works or doesn't.



Find new or replacement remotes:

or eBay: search for "(model) remotes", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

Remote will not operate fan or light. Replaced battery. Remote light glows red when pressed


Check dip switches in remote and dip switches on receiver in the canopy of the fan, make sure the settings match exactly. Make sure there is power to the fan. Make sure the fan and light are not manually set to off by pullchains that may be on the fan. If the fan does have pullchains, wire it directly in (bypass the remote in the canopy) and test the functions to make sure the fan and light are working. If it works without the remote, but not with the remote, and the dip switches are set the same and you have new batteries, then the remote and receiver should be replaced.

I Have a 5.3 IR Remote and a vizio VSB200 Sound Bar. The remote will not program to the Sound Bar. The Optical Audio is connected to the TV. What do I need to do.


lojr,

We have code to use with amplifiers, TVs, VCRs, and DVD players. I do not have a code that will work on this sound bar. What is the code you are trying to use? Did Vizio supply a code with your sound bar. They do have codes to use for their TVs to program DISH remotes. Please let me know if you have a code or you can contact Vizio to see if they have a code available.

I have provided the Power Scan instructions on programming the remote to a sound bar. Use the VCR button to attempt to program the sound bar.

If you have further questions, please post it here.

1. While at the sound bar location, point the remote at the sound bar. Press and hold the VCR MODE button on the remote until all four MODE buttons at the top of the remote light up.

Cursor does not appear


exchange it

    Cursor not appearing
    Please note that our experience shows that this troubleshooting is best performed using only one (1) Wii Remote at a time.
  • Some games do not use the cursor feature of the Wii Remote; Make sure the game you are attempting to play uses the cursor by reading the game's instruction manual. You can also exit out of the game to return to the Channel Menu and use the Wii Remote to see the cursor. If the cursor still does not appear, continue with the steps below.

  • Trying to use multiple Wii Remotes in the Mii Channel or Photo Channel? These Channels only allow the Wii Remote designated as "Player 1" to function.

  • Verify that the Wii Remote's pointer lens is free of obstructions and contamination (stickers, heavy smudges, etc.). The pointer lens is the tinted rectangle at the end of the Wii Remote.

  • Check the battery power level by turning off the Wii console, then opening the battery cover of the Wii Remote. Press and release the red "SYNC" button to check battery strength. The number of lights flashing indicates the Wii Remote's battery strength. Four flashing lights indicates full strength. Our experience has shown that as your battery strength decreases to one (1) or less lights flashing, the cursor may not appear. For troubleshooting, if possible, try using fresh batteries so that all four lights illuminate. For guidelines on using batteries, please click here. If after inserting brand new batteries, you are still seeing less than all four LEDs flash, then your Wii Remote will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.

  • Is the Wii Remote properly synced?
    Press the POWER button on the Wii Remote to see if the Wii console powers on.
    • If it does, the Wii Remote is synced with the system. Please skip to the next section.
    • If the power doesn't come on, power on the system manually and try syncing the Wii Remote.
      • If the Wii Remote will not sync, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote. Please click here for repair information.
      • If the Wii Remote will sync and the cursor still does not appear, try another Wii Remote if possible.
        • If at least one Wii Remote is working, there is likely a problem with the first Wii Remote and it will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.
        • If you have only one Wii Remote, or none that are working, please continue troubleshooting.

  • Make sure that the Wii Remote is being used between 3' and 10' directly in front of the TV and that there are no bright light sources affecting the Wii Remote's operation (review Game Play Guidelines for more information), and that the Sensor Bar is placed properly (see Sensor Bar setup).
  • Check the cord on the Sensor Bar for any frayed wires or kinks, and verify that the Sensor Bar is free of obstructions.
  • Check the button functionality, and that the Sensor Bar is operating correctly, by accessing the Wii Main Menu. Use the "+" and "-" buttons to scroll side-to-side through the Wii Channel screens.
    • If you are able to scroll with the "+" and "-" buttons, but the cursor is not appearing, then there is likely a problem with the Sensor Bar. Please click here for additional Sensor Bar information.
    • If there is no response, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote. Please click here for repair information.
