Even new remote won't work

When my old remote stopped working (yes, I changed the batteries) I bought a new remote (not a generic but an actual replacement), and it does not work either. How can I tell if it actually the remote(s) that don't work or if it's the sensor on the TV that isn't picking up the signal?

Re: Even new remote won't work

I can not get the subtitles off remote will not do it. Do I need to buy a new remote ? All the other buttons work

Have you read the manual for the device that is posting the subtitles?
It could be controlled by SAT or Cable boxes or you TV or even VCR if you have one connected. You should be able to control each device without using the remote but this will require you to actually walk over to the device and look at the buttons that are available to you.

Most likely you need to enter the menus of these devices and navigate to the subtitles section to turn it off directly.
Try changing your batteries in your remote also to see if it works better.

My remote won't work at all.

If no remotes work it is likely the remote receiver (ifrared and at front of set) is either dirty (lens) or bad.

A hint here is try original remote right up against the receiver--if works receiver is bad.

Note: original remote can be tested by a shop or even with most digital cameras--in a dark room the remote pointed at the camera and the lcd display will flash faintly when buttons on remote are pressed.

My remote control no longer works, even with new

First, test that the remote is actually working. The easiest way to do this is to point it at a switched on digital camera and look at the camera display. The remote uses infra red light which the human eye cannot see, but digital cameras can. As you press a button on the remote, you should see a glow coming from the remote in the camera display.

If it is working, it is probably a fault in your TV - not a DIY fix so take it to a repair shop.

If it isnt working, you'll need a new remote. A genuine Panasonic replacement will be expensive so you may opt for a universal one. However, universal remotes wont support all the functions the genuine one does.

Your choice !

Remote control stopped working for Samsung DVD/VCR combo.

A quick and simple way to test and check if you have an output from the remote is to point it at your cellphone's camera and then to push any button, you should see a pulsing light on the display of your phones screen. If not then either the batteries you put in is also expired, or if the remote was standing for a long time with the old set of batteries in it you could have some corrosion on the contacts in the remote from leaking acid. Clean the contacts with fine grit sandpaper and try again.
If you get pulsing light then you need to program the remote again, if it is a programmable remote as it resets after approx 3 months once the batteries dies. A remote Make and model number would be helpfull in providing your with the correct sequence of programming.

Need a remote code that actually works!

I have never been a big fan of the universal remotes , but most of the times they do at least turn the tv on . You could possibly have a bad IR as well to . Whats your model # of the tv and what type of universal remote are you trying ?
