My telefunken tv works and I can watch tv by using the buttons on the side of the tv, but when I try to use the remote it only registers that i'm pressing 1... no matter what button i press. any

AH! I have fixed a lot of remote controls in my career. I would suspect something may have got spilled onto the top of the remote and got inside under the front rubber like buttons you press.

You have a few clear choices here: find a tech or a shop who can take the remote apart(they can also test the remote) and clean it properly and put it back together.

I would do that before looking to buy another remote---if the side buttons work the set is ok--issue is with the remote.

Remote want work on tv


Make sure that you're using the supplied Remote (RMY-906) to control the TV. If so, perform the steps given below to resolve the issue.

  • Make sure that you're using batteries which are having enough charge. Try using fresh alkaline batteries.
  • Do not use rechargeable batteries in the Remote.
  • Ensure that the batteries are inserted correctly with the correct terminals by checking the + and - symbol in the battery compartment.
  • Make sure that the Remote is set to operate with the correct functions. On the remote control, press the TV FUNCTION button to re-check this.
  • Press the POWER button and other buttons to test the operation.
  • Make sure that none of the buttons are jammed in the remote control.
  • Ensure that the remote control is being used no closer than 3 feet and no further than 10 feet away from the unit. Try using the remote control at varying distances from the TV.
  • When using the remote control, be sure to point it directly at the remote sensor on the device.
  • Remove any obstacles that may be in the path between the remote control and the device.
  • Ensure the remote sensor of the device is not exposed to direct sunlight or bright florescent lights, as this can interfere with the sensors ability to receive signals from the remote control.
  • Try resetting the Remote. To reset the Remote. remove the batteries from the remote control, press every button twice, and then reinstall the batteries.
  • Try resetting the TV also to check the operation. To reset the TV, disconnect the power cord for a short period of time (approximately 1 minute), then reconnect the power cord and power on the television.

If the remote control is able to operate other devices (such as cable box, DVD Player or satellite receiver), then the issue may be with the IR sensor on the TV. If this is the case then the TV that will require service. Otherwise, the remote control may need replaced.

Good Luck!

My television no longer accepts commands from the remote control. I have verified that the remote control works properly. Please advise.

Since remote control is verified so next thing involved in remote operation is remote sensor located on front of tv that receives remote signals.
Remote sensor seems defective in your tv and need to be replaced to solve remote issue.
Call local tv repairman if you have no experience of soldering parts in circuit board.

I have a Toshiba TV (27A42) but do not have the remote. My daughter somehow turned on closed captioning this morning & I can't figure out how to shut it off. Any ideas how to shut it off without the...

The easiest solution is to purchase a universal remote control. I just purchased one from Walmart for $4.94. The setup is easy as there is an "auto-search" that identifies the code for your TV. Once it's setup, life gets a lot better.

My remote control on my 37 lcd tv will not work

I also had this problem.. Try this
Turn your tv off at the wall without putting it on standby.
Leave 30 seconds then switch back on.
At the side of the tv is a menu button, press and hold it for 15 seconds.
Now press the menu button on your remote control.
You should now be able to use the remote.

I called Philips Magnavox to be sure because i have the same issue. Yes you do have to have the original remote and they do not sell it directly from the manufacturer. I was given a website from the rep that I spoke with so that I could buy the original remote. It is and the part number is 996500015582 and the price listed is 47.37.

Remote will not control TV (but will control other devices)

Your remote control could still be the problem. Try another Toshiba remote on your TV or try your remote on another Toshiba and see what happens. Don't ever look past the easy repairs.
