Why does the remote unable to turn tv off and on?

Same thing happened to me... Was ready to purchase a new remote and decided to take remote apart first and see if it could be fixed: In battery compartment, remove small screw. With small flat precision screw driver separate the black from grey part of remote starting with the larger side of remote (do not force open anything!). Then do the same from the other side of the remote, moving slowly (without forcing) towards the middle of the remote, prying open both sides of the remote delicately. Finally, from battery side, push down on battery springs which should allow you to take remote apart completely. Remove small black rubber washer holding motherboard, allowing removal of motherboard completely.
With a dry cloth gently wipe motherboard down. Clean the rest of the remote (NOT motherboard) with warm water and soap. (After a few years, inside remote accumulates sweat and dirt ! Use paper towel to dry inside part of remote first as best as possible. Finish by blow drying thoroughly every part that was washed with soap and water. Wipe down again the motherboard removing all type of humidity and possible greasy layer that may have accumulated through the years. Put remote back together by snapping every part back in place (much easier than taking apart). Don't forget to insert black square part, black rubber washer and little screw in battery compartment. Once this is done, make sure bottom black switch of remote is pushed to desired position (TV for me). Your remote should work properly, on/off button should also work properly. Don't forget TV has 2 setting for On/off switch, one normal the other something like "power saving" which requires user to press on/off button for a few seconds. This definitely worked for me, hope this works for you :)

Phone in washing machine

If you remove the battery and allow the phone to dry thoroughly, then reinstall the battery there is a remote chance the phone might work again although not as well. More likely, you will need to replace it. I've washed a phone too and had to replace it

Cant get the remote to work for menu options just started setting it up already programed to my direct tv remote now nothing is working or either remote t.v or direct tv remote

To diagnose a remote control problem follow these steps.

1) unplug the TV power cord, count to five and plug it back in. (reboot)
2) try to power on with ORIGINAL MANUFACTURER remote.

if that works- your TV and original remote are fine.

if that does not work:
4) try to power on with buttons on the TV itself- if it works- check your remote batteries and try remote again.

Direct TV and Dish Network remotes will ONLY operate SIMPLE function of your TV such as power, volume, input.
They will NOT access your TV menu.

TV does not respond to remote commands,

I'm sure you've tried this, remote batteries is most common cause.
Make sure sensors on TV and remote are unobstructed(remote only works if line of sight to sensor is clear) and clean. Windex and Qtip. Damaged/dirty/defective remote, try different if possible (universal). If none of above works(99% chance), extreme longshot is TV circuitry.

My ipod shuffle just came out of the dryer after being washed and won't turn on. Is there anything I can do to get it to work again? Thanx!

Chances are your unit may still work, like cell phones do after being dropped into toilet bowls. However, before this happens, its innards need to be fully dried up. A session in the dryer after being washed may not be enough. Since this is a well sealed unit, it may need several days of drying up. I would try leaving it under direct sun light for several days, and then try to charge it and see if it still works.
Good luck!

I changed the batteries in my phillips universal remote and when I did it would not work. I have a magnavox tv but I do not have the code or know the steps to fix it

You shouldn't have to do anything after changing the batteries. Philips and Magnavox are the same brand, so the Philips univeral control should work your TV without programming it. Check the batteries and make sure your new ones are in facing the right direction. Also be sure the new batteries are actually good. I've fixed remotes for people by just changing the batteries again, even though the replacements were fresh out of the package. Also, did the old batteries leak in the remote? The battery contacts may have corrosion on them. There's also the chance the TV's remote sensor is at fault. If you can, try the remote with another Magnavox TV or program it for another device and see if it's working, or try another remote with your TV. If you need programming instructions for your remote, you can usually find them on the manufacturer's website.

Tv does nit respond to remote

The problem is inside the TV, caused by a cold soldering on the circuit board where the infrared receiver cables are connected. Needs to be resoldered.
