I have a Phillips net tv. My grandson spilled milk down the front of it now the remote control will not work with it. I have a feeling that it broke the sensor in the front of the tv. Is there a way I can...

The liquid might have entered into the front panel control board; and micro-switches. Milk won't evaporate like water. The front panel of the TV should be taken out to clean it. Contact any service technician, as this work can only be done by opening the TV.

How to format the picture to fit the screen with a universal remote (the one we have is not a philips remote)

Hi there. It is a common problem with replacement remotes. Some features like the one you describe will not be available in this one.
A Philips replacement remote is the solution. Best of luck.

Take it apart and wipe everything clean....I spilled soda on my remote and the same thing happened sometimes I'd push one button and I'd turn off the TV or go to the meny when I wanted to chabge the channel... A couple of screws and it will come right apart

On / off switch not working on remote

If the manual button on the set works the problem is almost certain to be with the remote---These sets do have a keyboard lockout for the controls on the front of the set but it will not affect the remote---it is there so children can be prevented from playing with front buttons.

I have fixed a lot of remotes---usually what you will find is if a single or a few buttons either do not work at all OR you have to press very hard to get them to work----something got spilled on the front of the remote--it does not take very much.

The way this works is ALL the little buttons on the front of the remote are really on mat made of latex etc---on the bottom of the mat are round black coated tabs----the mat lays flat on a circuit board and the coated tabs touch matching black points on the board.

Liquid (soda, coffee etc) gets in between the mat and the circuit board and no contact occurs.

Most of these remotes wholesale for about 40 dollars but you may find one on EBAY for less.

I have taken a lot of them apart; remove and wash the mat with soapy water and dry completely. Clean the contact points on the board with denatured alcohol and dry.

put it back together and bingo--everything works.

The remote pictured is typical of Mitsubishi sets and almost any Mitsubishi remote will confirm if this is your problem or not.

If this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

My remote control stopped working ,new batteries did not help...even tried a new one, still didn't work....any thoughts...

Get auniversal remote or a new original. If your handy you could take apart the bad one and look for bad solder contacts (or something spilled in it)

JVC I'art flatscreen TV remote doesn't work

This maybe a sticky one.

#1. Original remote may have something spilled in it or may have dirty battery contacts.

First check battery contacts and make sure it's not corroded. Clean with small brush and baking soda. Let dry thouroughly and replace with fresh batteries.

If this isn't the problem or you tried this, then move on.

Next, Get these materials. A cloth, 50% amonia and 50% water sulution two small blad pocket knife and a philips head screwdriver.

Some remotes will have screws holding remote covers and internal board and others do not. If your remote have screws, remove them all. If not, then start prying your remote apart with your pocket knives. Do so very carefully as not to damage anything inside.

Next, lay down remote button facing down, and remove circuit board. Now, take note of rubber button pad(s) position(s) and remove them. Place these pads in your water - amonia solution.

Clean all cntacts and rubber pads, and remote housing. Now before reassembling remote, look at the IR lamp at end of board. Look underside and notice solder joints. Wriggle lamp and see if solder joints move. If so, have this resoldered. Now reassemble remote and give this a try.

#2) Codes may have not been entered right with your new universal remote. Go through all codes again just to be sure.

#3) IR receiver in set maybe damaged or not receiving power to it or the microproccessor has quit responding to the remote commands. Have a good technician check into it if problem is evident that your set has simply stopped responding to remotes.

Good luck,

Remote Control

Most likely the soda gummed up the contacts inside the remote. You can disassemble the remote and clean the contacts on the pc board and, if it has one, the rubber membrane, which is conductive. Use a pencil eraser for the metal contacts on the pc board after cleaning it.

Tv won't turn on manually or with remote.

The water shorted out something in the power supply. If it got into the high voltage section, then probably this circuit has shorted.

The most likely problem is worn contacts in the remote itself unless the batteries are weak or not making good contact in the remote. You could try a inexpensive programmable remote or order another original Toshiba remote part number 23306263 (I found one listed on for $28.96 plus shipping). Sometimes remotes get liquid spilled on them and some of it will seep inside and cause problems later like the one you are experiencing.
