What do the button symbols mean on my Dell TV/ monitor remote control?

I have a Dell remote control device controlling Windows Media centre and a TV card in my Inspiron 531. I can't figure out what they are for- it took me 3 days to stop media centre recording one particular TV channel!

Question seems too simple for Dell help.

    Unfortunately I don't know how to add a picture to the question. If some kind person would explain that to me, a picture will follow.

It would help if you could provide pictures of the buttons in question. There should be documentation on Dell's website for you to download for free... unless you can find the user's manual.

How do I find a av channel


There will be a button marked A/V; at it remote control. Pressing it, once the TV will change its input mode. If your TV do not have a 'Menu' button at its front panel controls, you should have a remote control to select its inputs to TV/AV. If you do not have a remote control, and the TV has no 'Menu' button at its front panel control, there is no other way than buying a remote control to select the inputs to TV.
If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.

Sony bravia LCD cx32 automatic remote opreting in my tv please give me solution.


Check the remote control first. Hide it from the vicinity of the TV and check whether the TVs' panel buttons works properly. If yes, the remote control is faulty. Can't be repaired.
If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.

Press the TV /AV button; either at the front panel of the TV, or at the remote control handset. If you're using a universal remote control with this set, it might not possible sometimes.

Remote want work on tv


Hi,

Make sure that you're using the supplied Remote (RMY-906) to control the TV. If so, perform the steps given below to resolve the issue.

  • Make sure that you're using batteries which are having enough charge. Try using fresh alkaline batteries.
  • Do not use rechargeable batteries in the Remote.
  • Ensure that the batteries are inserted correctly with the correct terminals by checking the + and - symbol in the battery compartment.
  • Make sure that the Remote is set to operate with the correct functions. On the remote control, press the TV FUNCTION button to re-check this.
  • Press the POWER button and other buttons to test the operation.
  • Make sure that none of the buttons are jammed in the remote control.
  • Ensure that the remote control is being used no closer than 3 feet and no further than 10 feet away from the unit. Try using the remote control at varying distances from the TV.
  • When using the remote control, be sure to point it directly at the remote sensor on the device.
  • Remove any obstacles that may be in the path between the remote control and the device.
  • Ensure the remote sensor of the device is not exposed to direct sunlight or bright florescent lights, as this can interfere with the sensors ability to receive signals from the remote control.
  • Try resetting the Remote. To reset the Remote. remove the batteries from the remote control, press every button twice, and then reinstall the batteries.
  • Try resetting the TV also to check the operation. To reset the TV, disconnect the power cord for a short period of time (approximately 1 minute), then reconnect the power cord and power on the television.


If the remote control is able to operate other devices (such as cable box, DVD Player or satellite receiver), then the issue may be with the IR sensor on the TV. If this is the case then the TV that will require service. Otherwise, the remote control may need replaced.


Good Luck!
