There are several possible reasons. The light-emitting end of the remote, or the remote sensor window on the TV, may be dirty. The light-emitting diodes in the remote may be misaligned from dropping the remote control, or they aren't putting out as much light as they should. The TV may have another light source shining on it that prevents it from picking up the remote signal until it gets very close. The remote sensor in the TV might be bad. Or there may be an interfering signal. As more people start using compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) in their homes, they sometimes find that remote controls begin acting strangely. It's also possible the replacement batteries you put in are weak, so you might try another set.

Sorry I can't tell you which of these is most likely. I've seen them all many times. Try another set of batteries first, then try a universal remote to see if the problem is in the TV or the remote.

Good luck! Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

My remote control is working near the tv but at a distance its not working,itry changing batterias still not workingnot


If battery in the remote control is weak; this can happen. Repalce the batteries with new ones' and check. Still it behaves so; either the infrared sensor inside your TV; or the infrared lED, that emits infrared rays, is weak. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
There is details about how to check a remote control, using a mobile phone camera.

Remote doesnt control tv


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Clean the contacts inside the battery compartment. If rust or dust obstruct the proper contact, the remote won't work. Clean these contacts before you replace the batteries. Check this link to know about how to check the remote controls. If the infrared sensor inside the TV has damaged, the TV won't accept any remote control signals, even though the remote control is good.

We're having problems with our remote. It will work fine for a while, and then stop working, but when we put it up close to the box, it works again. We don't want to have to get up every time to change...


First how old are the batteries? Old batteries work off and on and often only at closer distances. You might want to try a fresh set of batteries. Also make sure the sensor on the remote and box are clean and free of oils and dust. Spray a bit of Windex on a cloth and clean them both.

TV does not detect remote control.


Remote control receiving sensor circuit problem in the TV. Mostly due to degradation of the sensor over a period of time.

Go close to the TV and see whether you get a response. If it responds try determining the distance back wards. If the remote works up to certain distance, the problem is weak sensor (TV).

If totally not operative it is sensor circuit problem. It could be sensor or it's associated parts.

TV and remote


Some suggestions: 1. Try fresh batteries in the remote. Weak batteries make it hard for the TV to see the signal from the remote. 2. Is there sunlight or ambient light hitting the TV on the infrared receiver (the part which sees the remote)? If so, it could be "blinding" the TV. 3. DO you have a ceiling fan which is casting a "flashing shadow" onto the TV? This can interfere with its ability to see the remote.
