    Can't believe this works, but it does! Thanks for this advice.

  • Claudia Puri Sep 26, 2010

    Goggin, you are a genius.
    You should have experienced the atmosphere in our living room one hour ago! Kids were pointing their finger at each other, husband accused me of dropping fluid on it; eldest son went out in a huff to get new batteries (it's Sunday evening). He got even more annoyed when he discovered that it wasn't a battery problem. We've only had the bloody thing three weeks! Turns out that granny had sat on it for a couple of hours after nodding off.
    So, I decided to come on here and see if there's a solution...and GOGGIN saves the day!
    Many thanks!
    (We're all talking again now...)

Thought i would have a look to see where i could purchase a new one from and just happened to come across best solution and guess what? it only worked, so i am absolutely over the moon. Thank u thank u thank u for taking some of the pressure off.

  • tina griffin Jan 21, 2012

    Most of a day was taken up with trying to re program the remote control, very fiddly looking at sky instructions. We then were going to buy a new one, and I found your link. I laughed and said lets try it, we have nothing to lose. And like all the other people on here you have saved the day, it works. Thanks a million from a very happy Norfolk Family

There is a way that you can Check to see if its broken completely.

Take a normal Mobile (with a camera on it)
Switch the mobile to the camera mode.
What I would like you to do now is, Point the Sky remote at the Camera phone while looking at the phone Press some the buttons on the Sky remote what you will then see is a little light Flash when you pressing it. This will indicate If the buttons on the remote are working or not.

This works as Camera phones do not like Infra-red so you will be able to see this Through your phone.

Once This is done you should know whether or not you need to Purchase a new remote.

If you are Still under your Warranty you could always Call Sky call centre and see if they can send you another remote through the post. This is Hit and miss as It all depends on which call centre staff member you Talk to as some are very helpful and others....... are not so helpful.

Another option you can go down is ARGOS they sell them.
Or if you lived in Newcastle I could have given you a Remote.

Hope this Helps you out. If it does Please Leave a thumbs up.

Cheers

Can't find a code for my ver 6 sky remote for LG50PS3000 TV


on your remote:

TV,
red + select (blinks twice)
TV,
0056,

press VOLUME button if this does not work press TV then repeat

once the VOLUME button works your telly press the SELECT button (stores the code).

If this does not work its because you have a rev 6 remote. take the cover off the battery case and it will tell you the rev number.
I install sky day in day out and ive only had one LG telly that did not accept this 0056 LG manufactor code.

The HD rev 8 remote will work no problem if you follow my steps..

Sky magic eye not working on hd


I work for Sky as an Engineer.

on your Sky HD remote:

service,
4,
0 1 select
4
make sure the power is turned ON

now go to the room you can not change the sky channels over with.
you should notice on the magic eye itself should now have a Red led light on it now. you should now be able to change the channel over just remember to press the blue sky button on the remote at the top otherwise this will not operate the sky box.

If not unplug this magic eye and try this directly into RF out 2 to make sure that its not the magic eye that is at fault. If it is working correctly then the light will appear.

Hope this helps
