Why won't MX 900 turn on even after putting in new batteries


The obvious question here is: are the batteries installed the correct way? Here is a web page to download the operator manual:

http://www.universalremote.com/pdf/MX-900OwnerManual.pdf

Also; are your batteries good? are they making good contact? Has the remote been damaged by leaking batteries? Inspect and test.

Do you have the original remote controls for the devices you are trying to control? If so... do they work? Remember... they will need batteries too!

Are there manual switches on the device you want to control? Do they work? Can you turn it on and off?

We are moving through a process to identify which items work, which are good and which are faulty.

TV remote won't work after changing batteries


When battery is changed, all the previous settings will be lost from the remote control. You should once again set it to your device, using codes.

When we press any button, all we get is the the red light on top left side of remote light up. channnels will not change, volume not change, won't power on or off. how can we fix this.


Hi there,

Sorry but without knowing the particular model number of the remote control or indeed whether or not it is a philips universal remote control, I can't give you a definative answer to your problem. I recomend however, if you haven't changed the batteries in your remote that you put new one's in as the batteries maybe too weak to operate the remote fully, this will at least eliminate this possibility. If you are using using a Philips universal remote control then try resetting the remote using the correct code for machine, if you don't know the code then try the Philips support website for the code for your tv. After that I would consider that either the remote or the machine has developed a fault where the remote's I/R no longer transmits or the machine's I/R receiver no longer works. Personally I would purchase a cheap / middle of the range universal remote and try that to see if that works as it is a much cheaper option than having the machine looked at by a technician. If you would rather there are online sites where you can by genuine remotes for most tv's etc but obviously this is a more expensive option than a universal replacement.

Hope this helps,

James

Solid red light


Have about a 30 second window to replace batteries before all codes are lost and when you put in the new batteries it goes into programing mode. Re-enter codes and try it again. Have the same remote and it has happened to me before.

Samsung TV remote. I noticed today my TV remote wasn't working. I changed the batteries and noticed there had been some leakage from the AAA batteries. Since changing the batteries the 8 buttons on the top...


Giving you some hints. Battery leakage is one enemy of tv control and other remote control. They can corrode your battery spring contact, give contact bridges with neighboring tracks that can cause erratic behavior of your remote.

Some repairs can be done but doesn't guarantee success. First is try to clean the corrosion on battery contact = no power usually. Erratic behavior cause by contact bridging = battery leak residues.

Opening a remote control. Some have screws on its small foot. Covered by a rubber or sticker. Some are notch clip in strategic location you have to fry that one by one, opening first on its weakest side. In some don't want to be open.

Cleaning the board by a soft eraser is one way. After you open the remote. Commonly the button area where contact takes place.

If the first procedure and cleaning doesn't work. Buy new remote or use universal remote controller.

Sony RM-ASP001 for 400 disk changer stopped working


Try the command code switch. I recently had a similar problem when my remote suddenly stopped working. It worked fine one time but nothing the next time I tried it.

I checked the emitter with a digital camera and found it was not working. I did the remote reset (remove batteries and push all the buttons twice, reinsert batteries) and the emitter was now working. However, the remote would still not control the base unit. I did the remote base code reset (push power, volume and TV/DVD buttons together) but this did not help. I then checked the command code switch. This is a small three position slide switch located in the battery compartment on the remote. I slid the switch back and forth several times returning to the default number one setting where it was before. I did not change anything on the base unit but the remote now worked.

Hope this helps.
