    Yes, I just found the same thing tonight!!
    I had the steering wheel control wire connected, I cut the wire and the remote started to work.
    Thanks for the reply.

The problem I had was with the remote control unit for the steering wheel controls. It shorted out. The head unit was fine. But, when the sterring control unit is shorted it also prevents the hand held remote from working.

I want to know that how mini split system automatic work? there is any thermostate or any other device?

Generally, they are operated by a remote control (similar to a television), although some units do have a wired wall control option as well. The indoor and outdoor unit has sensors that measure temperature (to control the operation of the mini-split) and (once the remote is set) the sensors control the system until it reaches the set point set on the remote.

My samsung remote BN59-00852A just stopped working, it wont control the tv. i changed the batteries but still nothing. please help

Try the instructions below. If you need to replace the remote, you can order one from:

Before replacing the remote, try the following:
How to Re-Start Your "Dead" Remote Control This only takes about a minute and will restart 1 in 3 "Dead" Original Remote Controls. Good Luck!
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.
Step 5- Try the remote.

Special Note:
If you have a digital camera, camcorder or camera phone you can test the remote to see if it is emitting a signal. Face the remote towards the lens of the digital unit until you can see the front of the remote. Depress any button on the remote. You should see a light (steady, blink or flashing) being emitted from the remote. If you do then the problem might not be the remote but the sensor on the TV unit.

Let me know if you have further questions. Please make sure to rate this solution. Thanks.

Remote control rmt b101a stopped working, changed batteries, same thing; did reset by pressing power, TV i/o and vol- simultaneously, still not working. Help!


Make sure that the Remote is operating in a range of 3 to 10 feet away from the unit.
Point the Remote directly towards the Remote Sensor of the Device.
Remove any obstacles that may be in the path of Remote and the Sensor.
Make sure that no interference is blocking the Remote to operate normally. Do not expose directly to Sunlight, bright florescent lights etc.
Try resetting the Remote by removing the batteries from the Remote control, press every button twice, and then re-install the batteries after 1 minute.
Make sure that none of the buttons on the Remote control is jammed.
Install fresh alkaline batteries in the Remote, do not use rechargeable batteries.
Make sure that the batteries are inserted by matching the polarity (+ & -).
Try resetting the Blu-ray Disc Player with which you're using the Remote.
If the issue persists, after all the possible troubleshooting steps, service may be required.

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!

Got me too... If the buttons on the main unit work normally, then possibly main unit and remote control are using different codes. Main unit shows SET 1; change remote control code to match it: Press and hold [ENTER] and code number [1] keys for more than two seconds.

When at the password screen, use the remote and spell out KCAR like you would on your mobile phone (55 222 2 777). That should unlock it.

GE Digital Wireless Thermometer

Wireless Digital Thermometer GE5805WS4
Instruction Manual

Buttons and Functions
Button Function
Front of unit:
Min/Max...........displays Min or Max temps recorded
CH(Channel)......changes displayed channel
(hold 3 sec to erase)
Clear................clears memory in Min/max display
Back of unit:
C/F....................Toggle between Celsius
or Fahrenheit temperature display
Scroll.................Remote Channel Scrolling ON/OFF

IMPORTANT:Read the section SETTING UP THE THERMOMETER before installing the batteries for the first time.

1.Remove the rear cover of thermometer. Install 2 new AA batteries. Replace battery cover.
2.Loosen 4 screws on rear battery cover of the Remote Sensor and slide battery cover off.
3.Install 2 new AA batteries .
4.After batteries are installed, the remote sensor will begin transmitting and automatically register to the Thermometer
(within range) after several minutes. However, you can also press the small button in the battery compartment (labeled Tx) to register the Remote Sensor to the Thermometer immediately
5.Replace battery cover and tighten 4 battery screws. Make ure that the battery cover is fully on and tightened to assure a watertight seal.

The thermometer can monitor up to two different Remote Sensors on two separate channels. Add-on remote sensors can be purchased separately and are compatible with the GE Wireless Thermometer/Clock (model GE5805WS4) as well as this unit. When first installing, always insert batteries into the Thermometer first, then into the Remote Sensor.
The thermometer uses random security code technology-it will learn the random code of the first Remote Sensor it detects and log in as channel 1. Channel 2 will register in the same way. NOTE: Registered channels will be erased when the batteries of the Thermometer or Remote Sensor are removed. When replacing batteries for a Remote Sensor, remember to clear the corresponding channel of the Thermometer in this way:

1.Remove batteries from the remote sensor (step 2 of installing batterie)
2.Select the channel that you would like to clear by pressing the CH button on the Thermometer until this channel number is displayed.
3.Hold the CH button for 3 seconds to clear the channel
4.Follow steps 3-5

Remote Sensor is suitable for outdoor mounting (watertight) at a range up to 100 feet from the Thermometer. HOWEVER, HE UNIT SHOULD NOT BE MOUNTED IN A POSITiON WHERE IT WILL BE SUBMERSED IN WATER, OR EXPOSED TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT, OR NEAR OTHER SOURCES OF HEAT OR COLD (I won't bother typing the rest) except for:

LOW Battery icon for the sensor will show up on either the
ch 1 or ch 2 display depending on which sensor is losing battery power.

Battery life 6 months
Temp Range Therm 32 to 122 deg F
Remote Sensor -58 to 158 deg F *
*Alkaline batteries can freeze temporarily at temps below -4 deg F. In this condition, the Remote Sensor cannot accurately transmit temp info to the Thermometer. This limits the effective minimum temp fo the Remote Sensor to -4 deg F

Operational Range....>50ft(and up to 100ft)(less interferances)

RF Channel ....refresh to "---" if no signal received in 60 minutes
