Remote is all wonky

I can use the remote fine for a while, turn around, and the darn thing doesn't work for anything but the TV. It's wierd. I'm certain it does this just to aggravate me.

Have you changed the batteries in the remote with new batteries? If so, you will need to readdress the remote to your receiver. I have provided a link with instructions on how to readdress the remote. If this doesn't resolve the issue, you may need a new remote. I hope this helps.

The remote for my 20: LCD TV has stopped working, i have changed out the batteries and even bought a new one but still nothing. What should i do?

there are several things to try.. first, isolate the source of the problem... get a universal remote (borrow one from a friend if you don't have one--get the instructions, too)...then program it for your tv...if the UR doesn't work, then there is a problem with either the tv or its remote sensor...try the troubleshooting guide for the tv or call the customer service line (ask if there are similar probs going around for that might get some special incentive to quit ****, if so..) If it DOES work, then it's your thing to do is make sure that the batts are good (which you did....but make sure you didn't get a fresh set of batteries from the same bad lot - it happens)...then check to make sure that the connections for the batteries are not missing, broken, or bent.. Look for corrosion, loose wires, solder gone...anything you can see which might cause your problem...Nothing visible? send it back..or try to exchange it at the store you bought it from, if it's a currently selling model Hope that helps you

I have an DVI to HDMI cable running to my Playstation 3. The playstation reconizies the connection. When I search the tv for the connection I connot find it.. The back of the tv says the DVI input is...

Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I have the same model TV and I cannot get anything to display from a DVI video source. Anything "pure" HDMI like a DVD player, XBOX 360, or media streamer, work fine. I now have a PC connected to the TV. The PC has an HDMI port and works fine on 2 LCD TVs I have at home but not this one. I'm starting to think it's a wierd HDCP thing.

Unable to control channels or volume

Is the remote a universal? Make sure you select TV as the the device you are trying to control. You can also fix a wonky remote by popping out the batteries and mashing down all the buttons. This rids the remote of any built up electricity that could be hampering functionality. Also, the remote sensor on the TV is controlled internally of course so a power drain of the TV wouldn't hurt:

1. Unplug the product's power cable so that the device is not grounded to the house. Do not simply turn off the power-bar if one is in use.
2. Press and hold in the products power button for 1 minute to release the retained electricity from the capacitors and circuit board. 3. Plug the product back into the wall outlet rather than a power-bar to rule it out of contributing to the problem and turn the device back on.
What do the buttons on the TV itself do? Do they work properly? If not, the problem is going hand-in-hand with the remote and again, the problem is internal and service or a firmware update, if available, may resolve this.

TV goes off on its own

It could be one of three things: 1. Your remote is doing wonky things and sending commands to the TV on its own. 2. Something else in the room is sending commands to the TV. 3. Your TV is doing wonky things on its own. To eliminate #1 and #2, try covering the IR (infrared) receiver on the TV. This should be a small red plastic window somewhere on the front, most likely near the bottom somewhere. You can put a book in front of it, cover it with a post-it note, or whatever. After it is covered, try using the remote to confirm that it is blocked. Now leave the TV on for a while -- does it stay on? If so, then it is either your remote or something else in the room. If not, then it is the TV itself. To determine whether it is the remote, simply take out the batteries. Does the TV still turn off? If so, then something else in the room is causing it. It can be something you don't expect -- a crystal ornament hanging in the window moving around that is sending just the right frequency of light, sometimes it is sunlight reflecting off of the blades of a ceiling fan. Sleuthing by moving the thing blocking the receiver can help identify the problem. If the problem is the TV, it is likely going to be too expensive to fix it. If it is the remote, you might be able to replace it with a universal remote, or find a model-specific one on eBay.

Video adapter port on the tv quit working

The only thing I can suggest is to clean out the adapter hole with some compressed air, short of that of I would have guess it's got to be some kind of short and it would cost just too much to fix and too much of a job to do it yourself.

Hope this helps.
