Re: remote signal not received?

If u can get to the INSIDE front, clean the window of the receiver eye.(of cause the outside also!) If the wires going to the board can be unpluged, unplug, the push it back in. Possable that the receiver eye circuit is too heated up.Put a small (square boxed computer type fan) in the back of the tv to cool it down some.If u know how to "glue" a HEATSINK to the chip to get rid of the heat, may help.
note: it is possable that BOTH regulor and universal r/c are intermittance (sometimes works, sometimes don't work)

Why does a TV remote control quit working?

Assuming you have changed the batteries, you might try blowing around the edges of the keys with "canned air" spray.
Most likely you can go to a drug store and buy a "universal" remote that will serve as a cheap replacement.
NOTE WELL: check out the "universal" remote's labeling and online to make sure it is compatible with your set BEFORE buying.

How can I fix the SLEEP function? My remote control doesn't work, the set shuts itself off after 15 minutes. TBX-2000AF the remote control is KDTR3

Unplug the TV from the wall, leave unplugged for a day or two, the TV may reset itself. You will lose all the programmed channels and may be other stored settings. The best is to get a universal remote for $10 or less.

Good luck

Remote Control Won't Work

Could be the IR detector or something in the support circuit for that sensor - it's a bit like sayin my car goes thump, thump, thump what's wrong.. :) Ahh better not go for laughs here...Let me ask, Do all the rest of the functions of the TV work okay? (ie volume, channel, power on/off)? Did you purchase the original remote, as a replacement, for that TV or some universal? When the remote quit working - was it working one-day and then just not working the next? Have you recently moved the TV, one-room to another, out of the way to clean underneath or moved it in any way? Let me know. Bill my private email is
