Re: polaroid remote channel button does not work

This looks to be a good hint. After reading the solution "I had the same problem. The fix is actually very easy. Just re-tune your channels in and your remote/channel buttons should work again.", I checked my remote and saw that there was a sliding button "TV/Cable" and it was on "Cable"

I moved it to TV and it started working.

This could be a dumb solution but just wanted to suggest...

I just got a brand new Polaroid TV and the remote won't respond to it, we got new batteries, made sure the lnese isn't covered and I have no idea what to do.

If the remote control you got along with the TV is its original one, there is no need for further setup; and it should work properly; otherwise, . If the remote control is a universal remote control; you should set it up with your TV; with its set-up codes recommended to Poloroid brand TVs. If you wish to get more, try the following links. Both the sites linked have set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls.

I have a new 32" flat screen Samsung TV. I want

This is very trick to answer some manufactures make all there remotes to work all their different brands, I suggest you take the remote to the 32" with you before purchasing the 19" to make sure they work. This is not always the case that your remote will on the other set.

Have direct tv service, bought a new 37 inch visio flat screen hd tv, need the code number to program my direct remote

could not find your brand at but this may work: " You may still find a setup code that works for your device by stepping through the library codes in your remote. The following instructions will help you do this.
Set the "Mode Switch" to the desired mode such as TV for a Television.
Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button until the visible LED blinks twice.
Enter the code "991" followed by the "device number"
for Televisions
for "AUX 1" devices - VCRs or DVDs
for "AUX 2" devices - Audio
You can step through the setup codes for this mode by pressing the "Channel Up" key to go forward through the codes or pressing the "Channel Down" key to go back to the previous codes.
You can try out each code by pressing one or more function keys such as power, volume or digit keys.
When you've found the setup code that works for your device, press the "Select" key. "

Can only select channel 13 no other numbers respond. Channel selector only goes down, won't go up, volume control will only get lowers, will not always go down. Power switch does not respong. Have already...

Did you use your remote a lot?
Do some buttons work sometimes if you press them really hard?

If it's a double yes and you've already cleaned the remote (the rubber pad with buttons and the circuit board with contact tabs), then the buttons are most probably worn out, which means they no longer make a good contact on the circuit board tabs.

There's a repair liquid kit for remotes, i'm not sure what the brand name is or where to get it, in europe, conrad electronic was selling it some time ago, however, i make my own from benzene, rubber glue and grapphite powder.

The other solution is either to find a new rubber button pad or to get a brand new remote...

My Polaroid remote control won't work.

First we need to know if the remote is working. Heres the "secret" way to check a remote. Use a cell phone w/camera.

  • Set the cell phone to camera
  • while watching the camera screen and a known good remote, aim the remote at the lens and press a button (volume works well) on the remote (not a device button ie; sat,tv,vcr,etc). You should see lights turn on/flash. Now you know your camera can detect IR light.
  • Do the same again with the remote in question. If there is no IR light output, the remote is the problem. replace the batteries, ensure good battery contact, retest the remote.
If the remote is working then the problem is in the unit.

Let me know what you find.

Neat trick, huh? Please take the time to rate this.

Directv remote code for polaroid tv

Slide top button on remote to tv. Press and hold mute and select button until the green light on the remote blinks twice. Then press 991. Then press 1. Then press the tv power button once. If the tv doesn't respond hit the channel up button on the remote. If that works press select to store the code and slide the switch back to the left. If it doesn't work keep hitting channel up until it does. It can take up to 30 minutes but it works.
