SOURCE: Does not respond to remote control

I have had the T743 for about three years now. The first unit which I got from the local shop was doing exactily like your described after couple of minutes use. Well, I took is back and got a new one covered by the warranty.

Unfortunately I never got any explanation to this problem from my local shop or anywhere else, so I guess the only way is to contact your local shop.

Not responding to remotes

I've owned an Onkyo DS696 receiver for 5+years. Every once in a while (when it was on for a long time?) the receiver would not respond to the remote. At first it could be "fixed" by a simple power cycle. It got worse over the years, and finally the unit would not respond to the remote at all. After reading a post here that made perfect sense, my husband and I opened the unit up, and (even thought the solder at the IR connection LOOKED fine, we resoldered it. (He knows how to do these things expertly). We screwed the unit back together and VOILA! it works perfectly now. Even if you don't know how to solder, if you brought it to a repair shop and told them exactly what the issue was and how to fix it - you can save your sanity and the unit. The solder joint I'm talking about is directly behind the IR on the front daughter board.

Model DR-S2.0. Why doesn't it respond to remotes?

If your receiver does not respond to the original remote, the remote may have failed.

If your receiver does not respond to your Harmony remote, the remote may not have been programmed or may have "forgotten" what to do.

Another possibility is that the infrared receiver has failed

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.

Hi. my original remote for my onkyo tx ds575 all of a sudden is not working anymore. the red light on the remore still lights up when i press a button but the receiver is not picking it up. hopefully you...

The red light on the remote just means the battery is good and the remote is responding when you press a button. It doesn't mean the control is actually sending out a signal. Many retail stores have a tester that will tell you if the remote is transmitting. Another possibility is that the remote sensor in the receiver has gone bad, and that the remote is fine. A universal remote (One-4-All URC6131, for example) that can work home theater receivers can be used to test the receiver. It may not work all the functions, but if it turns the receiver on and off you'll know the remote is at fault and not the receiver. Then you'll be able to replace the remote or have the receiver serviced as needed.

Samsung HW-C560s receiver is not responding to the remote, but remote is working fine

I had the same issue and wasn't able to find a solution on the net.... I got it working again by setting the remote to the receiver setting (amp in orange) then held down the power button and the number 1 button at the same time for a few seconds. It now works perfectly again.

The Onyko TX-DS595 receveiver won't respond to remote.

When unit is on hold down vcr button and press standy power button. display will read 'CLEAR". turn back on and see if remote works. note that this will erase any of your settings. Point the remote at any camera and look at the camera display. If you see a white light when you press buttos remote is working. Remove the top cover, remove front cover and resolder connections on remote receiver. If you intend to do this let me know and I can give you more details.

Yamaha RX-V630 Is not responding to the remote control unit

Replace the remote control with a universal remote (e.g. Logitech). It is more advanced and very user friendly with a help function if anything doesn't work.
Just follow the instructions in the unit's manual.
If you drop it; be sure to replace the batteries correctly.
Keep good batteries in it and enjoy the convenience of only one remote.
If still in trouble; just visit your local Yamaha dealer for help.

The menu button on my remote doesn't work

Try replacing batteries. If that doesnt work try aiming directly at Receiver's sensor. If all the other functions work except the menu see if you can access menu directly from the unit itself. If it works then you might need to replace the remote

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.
