Re: remote control

Try the most economical solution first replace remote with a universal one purchased at walgreens or walmart.

Think about it remotes fall after being put down they are handled by llittle ones and overall they are used more than the actual buttons on the dvd player

I have a JWIN VD519 DVD player that has worked fine till this evening. The remote suddenly stopped responding even after changing for new AAA duracell batteries. Nothing has been spilt on the remote...


you can test your remote with a mobilephone camera like this:

open camera on the phone an hold the remote front against the camera

(approx 10cm from it) press a button and look in the display on the phone.

if the controller works you should se a blue light in the display coming from the remote front.

if no light: try other batteries again note the battery polarity. no light= controller broken.

if there is light= the remote is working. try to disconnect power from the DVD for a few minutes,

and try again. if it still not works the player is propably broken.

Good Luck

The remote to my RCA DVD Player, Model DRC220N, has stopped working. I've tried new batteries, hitting the DVD button 1st, etc. Nothing works. The player itself still seems to work as the buttons...

You could try a universal remote (if one is available which will provide most functions to your player, such as STOP/PLAY etc.).

You can try a simple test on your existing RCA remote to see if it provides a 'frequency pulse'. Turn a radio on, select a black section of the AM band (not FM) turn volume up halfway, place remote near it, listen for pips and noises from the speaker(s) - if this occurs, the remote itself is OK. This is the cheapest idea to try first before going out and buying a new remote.

* If the unit does not respond to the universal (regardless of whether a remote code is required or not) then the IRD within the unit itself and its associated controller circuit may have failed (hence why the remote does not work). Repair of this requires a qualified workshop technician (because of the many surface-mounted components in the IRD controller circuit). *

But try the original remote-to-AM-radio test and/or purchase a universal remote or similar if necessary.

My remote control will not work at all help? I went a long time without using my dvd player and the remote use to work just fine however i tried putting in new batteries ive went online to get codes for...

Check the leads of the remote where the batteries are inserted. Sometimes the leads corrode that causes a non-contact. Scratch it using a smooth sandpaper or even a utility knife to erase the corroded part.

Hope it will work.

Even with new batteries, remote does not work

Store manager suggested purchasing a new remote at $70. I requested asking the manufacturer for repair. Feedback, repair more costly than new remote. I opted for buying a new DVD player, not goodmans, for $100. Thanks.

Remote Control not working

Heh, I got exactly the same problem 3 days ago. Question is, is it the remote or the unit itself?

Remote control will not work new battery installed

I had this problem too and fixed it. It wasn't the remote control but the sensor on the actual unit itself. There was a wire blocking the senor. To fix it I moved the wire so it ran underneath the dvd tray instead of running along the front of the unit.
