SOURCE: LCD TV Remote quit working

Hi,
First thing, turn off the TV and unplug it for about 2-3 minutes. Remove also the batteries on your remote. Re-install the batteries on the remote and plug in your TV. Power on your TV using the remote. No luck?

SOURCE: 2003 Impala - mystery problem???

you have something thats staying on with power when you shut the car off,first check all lights glove apartment,underhood,in trunk ,just because ther closed doesnt mean the light is off,check your car at night it might help to see the lights,if not another way is to take a multi meter to the battery and while some holds the meter pull out fuses in your fus box one at a time to see when the meter makes a change,this will help you to narrow down whats staying on and draining the power from the battery,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote

SOURCE: remote quit working for litex ceiling fan

after changing the batteries make sure you didn't change the remote code. If you didn't there should be a reset button inside the battery compartment, it may just look like a small hole. Just use a toothpick and insert it into the hole and lightly depress the reset switch.Replace the battery cover and try using the remote again.

My fire stick remote won’t respond to Alexa commands from remote


hi Douglas298.
this is all i could find.
Fire TV Remote NOT Responding / Syncing / Connecting: SOLVED I've changed the Fire TV Voice Remote control batteries 5 times already but it still keeps disconnecting and now it's gone completely dead! Update 08/02/17: The most probable cause for your Fire TV remote not working is going to be the batteries. I know, you're thinking I've already changed the batteries twice already. The Fire TV remote is a fickle beast and only likes brand new fully charged batteries before it will re-connect to your Fire TV box. I've tried switching in batteries from other devices that are all working fine, but without any success. Brand new batteries are the key for this power hungry remote.
Has your Amazon Fire TV Box or Fire TV Stick become slow? See my Fire TV Slowdown Solution here.
This need for new batteries seems to be especially true when your Fire TV box is next to a complicated TV setup with AV, Speakers, WiFi Router all next to each other.

AMAZON FIRE TV STICK
If you've tried brand new out of the packet batteries and it's still not working then you might have the same issue I had below. Don't forget to ask any questions you might have in the comments beneath this article.
Update: You can now control you Fire TV Device with the Amazon Echo & Amazon Echo Dot
If you've felt the annoyance of your Fire TV Voice Remote suddenly not connecting then I know how you feel. I've owned a Fire TV since October 2014 and up to now it's handled everything I've thrown at it. This is until one day last week when the remote suddenly kept disconnecting then died completely showing no signs of life.
I went through an array of different fixes to try and get it to work again but then finally I had a brainwave and managed to bring the remote back to life. It wasn't through trawling internet blogs and YouTube videos that I found this solution, it was actually from inspecting the remote more carefully. No, it wasn't Amazon's fault for building inferior products it was actually my own fault and partly the fault of cheap pound stores that litter the UK.
When I took the battery compartment off the Fire TV remote it looked completely normal. It wasn't until I raised the remote up to eye level that I noticed that there was a slight chalky residue on the connectors of the battery compartment. It then dawned on me as I looked across the room at a packet cheap pound shop batteries. One of the cheap batteries had leaked battery acid on to the Fire TV remote connectors blocking the current from getting through.

How to use your Fire TV when the remote won't turn on?

Luckily, Amazon have an App for that called Amazon Fire TV Remote that is available in the Android App Store and the Apple App Store. You can then control the Fire TV using the app and proceed to the next step below.

How to check if your Fire TV remote is connected to your Fire TV?

To see if your Fire TV remote is connecting to your Fire TV box or dongle you need to head to the settings menu.
  1. Settings > Controllers and Bluetooth Devices.
  2. Amazon Fire TV Remotes
This will show you what devices are currently paired and from here you can see if your remote is connecting. In my case when fiddling with the batteries my remote would appear here for a few minutes then disappear.
If all else fails, you can get an official Amazon FireTV Remote replacement.

The Solution

I took a flat head screwdriver and gently scraped the connectors of the Remote at each end. Wiping the residue off with a dry cloth as I scraped. The connector should look shiny and new again at the end of this process. I placed the batteries back in and the remote connected again straight away.
I've had no problems with the remote since and I guess the moral of the story is sometimes you get what you pay for... utter leaky batteries this time.

Fire TV Quick Tips

  1. Hold down the Select button for 5 seconds to put the remote into pair mode.
  2. Hold down the Select + Play buttons together for 5 seconds to Restart the device.
  3. Restart the device: Settings > System > Restart, then once restarted unplug the power cable for 5 seconds then plug back in.

Vizio sound bar 2.0 remote control not working


After only three days I would take it back, or at least take the remote back and try it on a different sound bar.

For your remote problem, mine has stopped working a couple of times and here is what Sharp had me do: Take the batteries out of the compartment. Next press and hold down the power button on the remote for a count of 30 seconds. Return batteries and the RC should be reset. As for the other problem, I had a similar thing happen tonight, hence I am on this site looking for help. My remote quite working, so I did the above, to no avail. I noticed the channel number box was frozen on the screen. I could not turn the TV off manually and had to unplug from AC. I plugged it back in and got sound but no picture, just that bluish dark screen. TV would not turn off. Then I got nothing, no sound, no pic. I left the TV unplugged for several minutes, 5 or so, plugged it in and it did work and is working now, RC too. You might try unplugging it for an extended time.

Samsung remote control


Remote control problem: your going to laugh at this but this was an easy fix, after my husband told me that there was something wrong with it, I tried to use the remote and he was right, it wasn't working. I changed the batteries that evening and sure enough it still wasn't working. The next day I had a closer look and thought that it wasn't right that a new t.v. remote wouldn't work, and lo and behold the problem? My housekeeper put a picture right in front of the electric eye of the t.v.! Guess what, it works quite fine again, thank-you for your time, and I am glad that it wasn't anything major. Peggy
