Re: air conditioner remote

- check if the battery is still good
- check if the receiver of the unit is clean and no obstruction.
- Some of remote control have a reset switch, every time you change it with battery you have to reset it.
- Some of remote control have A and B selector at board and remote control, check this if they set at the same frequency.
- To check if the remote control still working you have to test your remote control to other unit with same model as yours. If its not working then replace your remote control. But if its working then you have to replace your receiver board.
- Some remote control have to be reconfigure so you have to read your manual.

SOURCE: Hi I have a starway

I have a different problem subscription but perhaps it could be the same source...In my apartment are two Starway airconditions. I have two remote controls. Both are working at the one in the living room. Before also both were working at the one in the bedroom.Now the bedroom-aircondition suddenly doesn't switches on or even do a beep on any of these remote controls... I've had this problem once before (some weeks ago) and after a while luckily it was able to be switched on again - like magic. Now it's not working since a day. The red power LED was on and the green 'running' LED was flashing. I already switched off the power for a while (with the fuse for the whole room). The red power led was off during this time. It comes up again the moment I switched the power back on, but that's it. Nothing more is working. It cannot be related to the remotes, because both are working normally at the living room.A small clue - the fan outside is a little bended and scratches a very little at the metal case. So the resistance for the motor could be a little higher to turn the fan. But this is since I'm in this apartment (3month) and seemed to be like this a long time ago, too...Does somebody has any ideas to check? I need it urgently back in service, because I use it for heating and it's getting really cold now in the bedroom :-/
I don't know if this could also be the problem from the person that started this thread. Perhaps your old remote control was working (like mine) and just the aircondition doesn't work with any remote any more. So your universal remote could hit the right numbers but nothing will happen ...
Anybody else had a problem like this?

SOURCE: Hi, the air conditioner is

Make sure the batteries are good. DO NOT trust the batteries that came with the remote, they are often old. Be sure if there is a switch on the A/C that needs to be on for the remote to work.
Some LG's have modes they can be set in that do not allow the remote to work.
Make sure that you can point the remote directly at the A/C as they are notorius for not working well from a distance, or when not pointed at with the remote!

How do I program a universal remote to my haier air condioner I lost my original remote

Most universal remotes won't have a code for an air conditioner. You'll need one that is made to work with A/C systems. See: or for remotes that will work with the HWR10XC6 and some other Haier air conditioners.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model and manufacturer of the universal remote you have. I'll try to confirm the available codes and how to program the unit.

Cant feel heat using remote 6711A10010D

You need to ensure that the LCD displays a sun symbol. If this is not the case this can be corrected by using the button which has triangle, snowflake, sun and raindrop symbol, press until sun is on screen. Then set temperature.

Can not switch on home air condition with remote and no have manual switch

If you open the front panel of the indoor unit (it opens upwards) near the receiver there is a samll on/off push button (switch). If the indoor does run but still cannot be controlled by the remote, there is a reciever board problem. you need to call their servicemen.

Kelvinator Split System Air Conditioner not turning on.

On some remotes there is a reset button which is pressed by using the nib of a pen. Or if this does not work you should look under the cover for a manual button, most units have one, and see if the aircon responds. I suspect your remote sensor is faulty, but try the previous suggestions first.

I have a Panasonic split air conditioner with remote but the remote doesn't seem to communicate with the air conditioner, how can i operate the temperature manually?


If you open the flap where the filters are on the right there is a emergency button. If you push it once it will put it on cooling at 20degs and push it twice 22degs heating.

Now fault finding,
Get yourself a camera with a LCD screen. Point the LCD screen at the pointer of the remote (it will look like a glass buble). Push a button on the romte and you should be able to see a infa red light on the lcd screen. If you cant the remote is faulty. But if you can you need a new receiver board on your panasonic, contact your panasonic warrrenty department to get someone out to look at it.

Hope this helps, anything else please let me know

A/c remote working but system wont respond

Heya Allhart?

How did you check the remote? Did you check the remote via viewing it on a LCD screen? If the remote is working than you need a new receiver PCB for your air con and would contact Sanyo to see if it is under warranty or for them to get someone out to veiw.

Hope this helps

LG Spilt A/C


there is a lot of reason why your LG split unit would not work by remote control.
first likely trouble is the remote itself. it could have drop from a height and broke the remote, or corrosion has set inside the remote if you left an old battery for a long time and it could have broken it.

secondly which is not more likely to happen is the remote receiver in your unit got broke that is why it can not communicate with your remote controller. it could happen if someone has serviced your evaporator and could have disconnected wires to the receiver , or wires were just left not connected.

you can test the remote if you have an identical unit which is working with a working remote. use the working remote to your unit then you can decide.
i hope i was able to help.
