Remote inop

Step 1:

Have thee remote tested--most shops will do this for free--point remote at the tester and it will react when buttons are pressed on the remote.

Step 2:

A digital camera in many cases can also be used for this---in a very dark room point remote at the camera with the camera on---press buttons and look for a tiny flash of light on the camera display screen.

Step 3:

If remote tests bad it can usually be taken apart and fixed OR you can opt for a new remote---I would avoid universal remotes as they often if program will be missing key and needed button/features.

In our shop we fix remotes with a 10 dollar max price--lots we fix for free.

Step 4:

Last but not least if the remote tests good the remote receiver inside the front of the set may be bad and a shop would have to replace that unless you are able.

Here is a photo of the typical receiver (less than 1/2 inch tall part).

Tv Remote stop working already tried new batteries, also tried programing univers remote can't find electron so I tried curtis mathis codes and still can't program remote one work but would not turn of or...

This only takes about a minute and will restart 1 in 3 "Dead" Original Remote Controls.

Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.

Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!

Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to
each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)

Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.

Step 5- Try the remote.

Special Note:

If you have a digital camera, camcorder or camera phone you can test the remote to see if it is emitting a signal. Face the remote towards the lens of the digital unit until you can see the front of the remote. Depress any button on the remote. You should see a light (steady, blink or flashing) being emitted from the remote.
If you do then the problem might not be the remote but the sensor on the set.

Setting the code:

Battery died and need to set up codes for Fisher TV

Hello, follow this link to download the manual and the codes for your remotes:
just right click and save as on the download links.

if this does not work you can try the search method,
you do this by either holding down the device button eg: TV or if you have one the "magic" button for three seconds, a light should then flash twice to say you have done this correctly.
then press the keys 991 then the power button.
you must now press the channel up key (ch+) possibly upto 150 times while the remote cycles through every code.
Once your tv or device switches off stop pressing the ch+ key and press the power button to make sure it switches back on,
(if you press ch+ too many times you can go back by pressing ch-)
When complete press the magic or device key again to save the settings (light should flash twice to confirm)

Many thanks
