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 Toshiba SE-R0161 Remote no longer works.

There is most likely nothing wrong with your remote. I just had exactly the same issue with my SE-R0161 remote. (I had just changed my remote batteries too and was getting a DR-2 code on the Toshiba DVR RD-XS52 unit's display.) My DVR and my remote had to be realigned so that they both have the same infared (IR) code. The remote and the DVR can have DR 1, DR 2 or DR 3 as remote codes. Pg 54 of the Toshiba Installation Manual explains how to align both your SE-R0161 and your based unit so that the remote works again. Good luck. Hope this helps.

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.

Channel keeps changing to 'Input 2' even when playing DVD

Have you taken the remote control out of the room? Try changing inputs from the TV.
