Receiver does not respond to the remote control (AVR 65S). Seems either product is defective. How to tell which one is defective?

The obvious answer is to change the batteries in the remote control! If this doesn't work, you can check if your remote control is outputting anything by pointing it at a digital camera, and while viewing the camera's screen, press one of the buttons on the remote. You should see a white light appear on the camera's screen if the remote is working. This doesn't work with ALL camera's but it does with 4 of my video and still digital cameras. This should at least let you know that the remote is functional, it doesn't mean that it is programmed correctly.

Why is my remote control not working despite changing the batteries.

Not sure if this will help but, I recently put an antenna on the roof of my house. I don't watch TV much but wanted to enjoy some TV, but my remote locked up and the side buttons on the TV wouldn't work either. I tried changing the battery, but no luck. There's a broadcast station 64.2 that is locking up TV's & remotes. Here's the fix that a TV repair co. gave me which did break the lock of the station 64.2.

1) unplug antenna (not roof but connection from TV to wall)
2) unplug and plug back in TV
3) find a way via remote or side buttons to scan channels
4) Go to Menu
5) EZ Setup
6) Channel Set Up-Scan Channels
7) Channel Memory
8) Digital Set Up
9) Turn Skip On for 64.2 (Delete this Channel)
10) Turn off TB
11) Hook Antenna back

You may have to play with the order to acheive the end result or figure out a way to delete 64.2, but during the process you will at least unlock from being stuck on 64.2.

Good Luck if this was the same issue!

Remote works intermittently


Unfortuntately, you and many others have this problem. I will point you in the direction of two "fixes" I have found.

Fix 1 is from Kenwood themselves, per the following quote:first try replacing the batteries if you haven't already. If that doesn't help, try resetting the receiver. Simply unplug the receiver, then press and hold the power button on the receiver while you plug it back in. Turn the unit on, and the display should say 87.50 to confirm the reset. If the remote still does not work, use a digital camera as an eye, face it towards the IR of the remote control. Depress any of the remotes buttons; you should see IR flash each time a button is pressed. If not then the problem is with the remote. If the remote works fine, then the problem is with the receiver. In order to determine the cause of the problem, I suggest you take the defective unit to a Kenwood authorized service center for evaluation. You can find information for authorized service centers in your area by visiting our website at

The second fix involves some very simple soldering, and has been endorsed by many as the solution:

I hope this helps. Good luck and please let me know if this solves your problem!

Sony STR-VX550 receiver does not respond correctly to commands from optional Sony RM-S750 remote commander. Remote is working properly and activats all functions on my other STR-VX550. Only on/off command...

If this is a recent occurrence, unplug receiver for 20 minutes. This will reset the receiver. If the remote is programmable, reprogram it for the receiver. If you do these steps and it does not work, you need a different remote.

Did you check the Audio-Video slider button in the middle of the remote? It needs to be on Audio, else the remote sends video channel number signals when you press the numbers.

Receiver not taking commands from the remote

Point the remote at a digital video camera to see if you can see the small blue infared light comming from the end of the remote when you aim it at the camera and press a button. if you do see the light then your receiver has a system control problem I'm afraid. You see your eyes cannot see the infared light but the camera optics can. Good Luck
