Question about Radio Shack Wireless Remote Extender Remote Control

Main TV Goes On By Itself

We have come home and the main TV is on. In the middle of the night the main TV will go on and the volume will be at the highest level. When I go down to check on it I notice the wireless receiver is displaying a red dot like a remote is being used in the other room but it is not. Any idea on what this could be?

Re: Main TV Goes On By Itself

If this happens often enough, it would be fairly simple to troubleshoot. Remove the batteries from your remote, if the problem persists, the problem is not the remote. Next step would be to unplug power to the transmitter, if the problem persists, the problem is not the transmitter. Next step unplug power to the receiver, this should undoubtedly make the symptoms stop, but try it anyway. If it does, it doesn't necessarily mean that the unit is bad. The remote extenders work on radio frequencies. If you have the paperwork for yours, look to see what frequency range it uses. Many other devices use radio, too. Cordless phones, especially the "frequency jumpers" constantly seek around for unused spectrum space and will jump right in somebody elses' space. If you have neighbors, their equipment can interfere with yours and vice versa. I've had microwave ovens with leaky door gaskets interfere with 2.4ghz signals. The new(relatively) incursion of home wireless broadband is another local spectrum user, I can pick up as many as nine of them at once. And the lot size here is about 1/2 acre. I shudder to think what it's like in an apartment/condo environment.

The volume keeps going up and down by itself and I can't change channels.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

The volume on the TV keeps going down by itself. What should I do?

Dont know what tv you have but. You can remove the batteries from remote and if volume still goes down you ruled out the remote as the problem.. Or just take remote to another room. If the problem still exists then Im guessing either a sticky button on the tv volume down or as I have seen to many times.. People clean their tvs with windex or some cleaner and it drips down into the tv messing up the control buttons. Hopefully its just a sticky button..

TV remote RM-ED002 for main TV works fine except volume control which has no effect. Another Sony remote, RM-ED007 for second TV works fine on main TV including volume control.

I had the same problem with sony remot control RM-ED002, take remot control apart and clean inside with damp cloth and dry with kitchen towel, thats it now use it! ;-)
When i opened mine it was some kind of moisture under volume and channel buttons, cleaning and drying it helped.
