Question about Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Pro V7010 Notebook

Windows XP Media Center Remote control wont work anymore

**** I PICKED THE GM5084 BECAUSE YOU DID NOT HAVE THE GM5094E ON YOUR LIST****

The remote control that came with my Gateway GM5094E will no longer work (yes the remote works, has new batteries and the green light is lit, showing that its transmitting a signal) I used it so rarely, Im not sure if it was the wireless internet router, or some windows update that did it. But it no longer works, so I looked in Device Manager, and I found something called 1394 Net Adapter, it has red X through it, and even if I enable it, the remote still doesnt work. There is also a Yellow ? that says Other Devices, still havent figured out what that is either, but it wasnt always in there.

I have a Fujitsu Amilo Xi 1526 and the infrared remote contol that came with the laptop won't work in windows media center either. It used to work but seems to have stopped. As well, the remote is fine, batteries and all. In the device contol panel there are no errors shown.

HP TSGH-IR02 Remote Control how to install


This document pertains to HP Media Center computers with Windows XP, Media Center Edition.Use this document when the remote control does not work correctly with the Media Center software.Troubleshooting the remote controlUse the following items to troubleshoot when the remote control does not respond or when the remote control does not work properly. For example, when a key is pressed the selection moves all the way to the top or bottom of a list, or moves a selection many different places instead of the item you were trying to select.Before attempting these steps, make sure that PC has been updated with all of the latest Windows updates. Many updates for Media Center, like Update Rollup 1 for eHome Infrared Receiver, can be downloaded easily through the Windows Update software Tool.
Make sure that the batteries for the remote control are installed correctly and charged.Make sure that the front of the remote sensor is unobstructed, within a 45-degree range, and is less than 26 feet (8 meters) away. Disconnect all devices that use a USB connection except to the receiver, keyboard, and mouse. Restart the PC, and then try the remote again.If a pressed button repeats itself (sticks), unplug the IR receiver from its USB connection, wait one minute, and plug in the IR receiver. If the pressed buttons continue to repeat, alter the lighting conditions in the room or move the location of the IR receiver. Other remotes and HP Media Center PCs within range can also cause this issue.Try pressing the Enter key on the remote after changing a channel.If the remote control works when using the media center software, but does not work when changing the television channels, re-configure the Media Center software settings for the cable set-top box or satellite receiver
Point the remote control towards the IR receiver and press a button. A faint red light should appear on the IR receiver. If the light appears, then the problem is probably in the software that is using the remote control (most likely the configuration of the Media Center software). Close the software, restart the computer, and then re-open the software to solve this issue.

Troubleshooting the IR receiverThe IR receiver is the small device that receives the signals sent by the remote control. Use the following steps to test and reset the IR receiver.Disconnect the IR receiver from its USB port on the computer, maximize the Media Center window if it is open, and then reconnect the IR receiver. Test again.Point the remote control towards the IR receiver and press a button. A faint red light should appear on the IR receiver. If the light appears, then the problem is probably in the software that is using the IR receiver (most likely the Media Center software). Close the software, restart the computer, and then re-open the software to solve this issue.Click Start , right-click My Computer , and then select Properties .Click the Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.Click the plus sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers.If the eHome Infrared Receiver is listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers, Windows is properly detecting the IR receiver. If eHome Infrared Receiver is not in the list, or there is an exclamation mark or a question mark on the device, perform the following until eHome Infrared Receiver appears correct in Device manager:Unplug the end of the USB cable on the IR receiver from the computer and plug it into the same USB port.Plug the end of the USB cable on the IR receiver into the front USB port on the computer.Disconnect all other USB devices, leave the IR receiver plugged in, and then restart the computer. Plug in other USB devices after the IR receiver shows up in device manager.Figure 1: IR receiver listing in Device Manager

Remote control for windows media center doesn't work. batteries are fresh, both the computer and remote show blinking lights when buttons pressed but no other reaction. computer is an HP running mce 2005...


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.

Sky + Remote wont change volume or mute after buying a new tv.


I have since found the code. 206 worked straight away which I hear is good as some people have to try numerous codes before it works. You press tv, press select and red button simultaneously for a couple of secs until the red remote light blinks, then press 206 and finally, select to save. This worked for me so hope it helps anyone else.
