Re: it is not responding

This is one of the best solution to do, look for unit who have same model as your unit( to your friends or neighbors) and test your remote control. If it wont work in another unit with same model then the remote control is defective, but if it works then its the receiver.
But try this solution first, if there is a reset button in your remote try to reset it then try the remote to your unit.

Note: sample only(reset button can be found either infront or at back of the remote control inside the battery compartment.)

Remote control functions Ok (ie display appears and settings can be changed), but the air conditioner unit does not respond. Can operate using ther manual switch on the inside unit, but does not get past...

Use your cellphone or any digital camera as your eyes by pointing the camera to the remote control transmitter. Light should emits on the remote control receiver. If no lights means defective remote control. But if lights emits means that either the receiver board or the main board is defective.

Try also the rst or reset button if present. Reset and try the remote.

Control seems to be working but unit not responding.

Check your remote control by using a camera or cellphone camera as your eyes to confirm if the remote control is ok. Point the remote control transmitter to your camera and check if a light emits in your remote control transmitter. If no light then the remote control is defective, but if the light is present then the remote is ok and the unit receiver board itself is defective.

Check also if there is a reset or rst button on the remote control, press the button and test the remote.

No Display on controller

Try replacing the battery but if it wont work you need to replace the remote control itself, but for the main time you can operate the unit by pressing the emergency switch button to operate the unit manually.

Air Conditioner will not turn off with remotes

Remote control has a reset button found in front or at back inside battery compartment. If you replace your remote control with battery or your remote control is malfunctioning you to reset it.

You don't have to go outside to turn off the unit, you can "on" or "off" the unit using the emergency operation switch.

- Check if the battery is ok.
- Some remote control have reset button, you can find it at the front or back at the compartment of the battery push the rst button with pin or ballpen to reset it and try.
- Some remote control have selector switch in both remote control and at the board inside the unit. Try to transfer the switch button from A to B and also at the board inside the unit and reset the remote control and try.Or need to reconfigure the remote control to select the frequency.
- Try your remote control to other unit with same brand as yours to confirm if your remote control is really need a replacement. If it works then your receiver board in the unit is need a replacement. Or if wont work then you have to buy a new remote control. But if you have no budget then try to switch on the unit using emergency button to operate the unit.
