Do you mean no power or no cable?If you mean no cable,did you do a channel autosearch?Is it new or used?Even if it is 5 years old,an autosearch should pick up some digital channels.If it does not have the original remote,you will have to use the menu button on the TV to access the channel search.If none of these options work,it is simply a large paperweight.Universal remotes do not give menu access.Let me know how you make out.Just make a comment to this post and I will get a notice that you replied. Good luck! Greg
the problem with the tv systems brought out world wide is no one really knows who made them our company in australia has worked on several and found the closest match is the rowa company in tiwain the problem is even with replaceble universal tv remotes most of them dont have the code for this tv however its just a case of purchase a universal remote based on a guarantee of money back if the code is not compadable with the tv set
good luck need more help let us know sonic boom electronics australia
I don't know of any adjustments for the IR receiver but the receiver itself could have gone bad or something may be blocking the IR lens not letting the IR signal get through.
Maybe (but unusual) there may be a cold solder joint in the IR circuit.
Sometimes dust will collect on the inside of the IR lens causing this problem.
You can verify the operation of your remotes by
holding them close to an AM radio receiver and pushing the buttons. You'll hear a popping sound through the radio speaker whenever a button is pushed. You may have to tune the radio up or down the band to pick up the remote's signal.
