Re: Remote stop working

Hi does the controll have a button that says tv or vcr if so press the vcr button and try that if that dont solve the problem then make sure batterys are in right way and check the terminals are free from corrosion if this still dont work then the best thing to do is take the case off the remote and usually the problem is a build up of dust or grease on the board or on the back off buttons clean the board with dry cloth and clean the back of buttons remove any dust or grease from the board and buttons then put back together if this still dont work then you probably need new remote.
It will cost more than the remote to get repaired you can buy an all in one remote that will operate this for you let meknow how you get on ok

Remote control does not work

A few things may help before you invest in a new remote. One, open remote and make sure no dust is inside and the batteries are good. Use compressed air to blow out the remote. Next, try cleaning the little electric eye at the top of the remote with rubbing alcohol. Just a little hit to clean the eye. Also find the spot on the player that receives the signal from the remote and make sure it is clean and not blocking any signal. If all of that fails, you may need a new remote.

Remote control has stopped working

If you have replaced the batteries with KNOWN GOOD ones, observed the proper polarity when re-installing the batteries AND made sure the remote is in DVD "mode" (if it is a multi-remote) when trying to use it, the remote is bad. Replace the remote.

You said that you have changed the batteries.
While you're checking the batteries, make sure that the contacts for the batteries aren't corroded or bent. You can clean them with a pencil eraser followed by a nail file. If necessary, gently bend them back to their correct position.

Try these too,
  • Go up to the receiver and try changing the channels without using the Remote Control.
  • Refer to the Remote Control setup instructions, and make sure you have the correct codes programmed for your equipment.
  • Make sure nothing is blocking the front of the receiver (e.g., furniture).
  • Make sure you are operating the Remote Control within 20 feet of the receiver.
If all the above doesnt work,

Either the remote or the receptor on the device is not functioning.

1. Use an Infrared Sensor Card to see if the remote is sending a signal.

2. If the remote is sending a signal, it used to control that device, and no other solution works, you should have a service center look at the device and remote to determine the problem and if it can be fixed.

Hope my info solves your problem,
Thanx for using fixya....

Remote not working

there is a way to test the remote contorl. get a radio and put it on the am section. aim the remote control towards the radio and push the buttons on the remote. if it is working, you should be able to hear some statics from the radio speakers. try it and let me know. if you do not hear statics, they you need to open it and clean it with rubbing alcohol. use q tips to do clean the button on the board but be careful not to put any alcohol on the rubber buttons from the inside, it will ruin the finish on that. it will destroy your remote. good luck.

MY DMR-EH55 has problems repsonding to the supplied remote control

Firstly, check you do not have bright light shining across the IR sensor.This can degrade the signal to noise ratio of the IR receiver.

Second, check you do not have a noisy mains electricity supply, arcing plug block or running from square wave inverter supply. Either of these can cause problems with IR receiver in the DVD player.

Remote control will not work?

Hi Quad, recently I also got same recorder and faced the same problem with the remote controller. today i tried to solve this. i opened it up. it turned out the battery connections are not proper. The battery connection are in the form of a spring coil which touches the outerside of the battery which is not touching properly. I bent and slight lift it with a plier and it started working. The other connection is touching front side of the battery(on backside you see label cr2025 printed) and this is alright. I hope it works for you too. with best regards
