Remote Problems The remote works fine at first about 1/2 hour or so it stops working. Sometimes I have to press harder on the remote keys to get it to work but now it seems that dont work anymore. After I shut off the tv for awhile then the remote will work again. Do I have a remote problem or is it the tv?

Put new batteries in and try again. Sometimes the IR sender may also not be working properly due to a loose connection.
I would also suggest to open the remote and clean the contacts using alcohol. Rub the contacts on the key pad and remote gently.
Hope this works.

bp22911,

It sounds like it may be an interference issue with the IR. Some LCD TV's can cause interference with an IR signal which will cause problems with the remote. Something you can try to fix is disabling the Auto Back-Lighting feature on the TV itself and see if that helps. If not, the easiest way to fix would be to make the TV1 remote UHF.

This would require a 21.0 remote as a 20.0 is IR only. Look on the back of the remote at the top to see what model you have.

With a 21.0 go to System Information. On the back of the remote inside the battery cover is a switch that says IR And UHF and make sure the green 1 is showing. Flip it to UHF and press Record 3 times. The Primary Address should now have UHF in it. Try the remote and see if it works.

If it doesn't or you continue to have problems you can post here or email me at thomas.faust@dishnetwork.com

My remote for my LT55164 just stopped,,,working. Have reset tv (unplug for 20 min) Driving me f'ing crazy


To troubleshoot the remote control problem, follow this step. 1. Check the battery (new if possible) 2. Get a ordinary radio then scan the radio to no signal frequency...just a buzz song will be okay. 3. Try to point your remote control in front of your radio, then press any keys (numbers or anything) 4. If you heard some sound to the radio while pressing the keys 4.a Your remote control is working fine. 5. If you did not heard anything while pressing the keys 5.a Your remote control is not working. You need to replace it or just buy a universal remote control (cheapest way to do).
Thanks. Hope this helps.

Replaced batteries in remote dosent work might need program


Also try these simple trick to find out your remote control working or not....
Point the remote control towards the Camera of a Mobile Camera phone,with the camera on. While pressing remote, we can see a light (Infra Red) coming from its IR LED through the Mobile Camera if the Remote is working.
ifremote is working fine....lets go for programming

1. Manually turn on the TV
2. Press and hold the TV button The illuminated ON•OFF key turns on and remains on.
3. While holding the component key down, press and hold the ON•OFF key. The illuminated ON•OFF key turns off.
4. After holding down both keys for three seconds, the illuminated ON•OFF key turns back on.
5. Release both keys. The illuminated ON•OFF key remains on. TIP: Throughout the programming of each key, be sure to keep the remote pointed at the IR sensor of the component you are currently programming the remote to control.
6. Press and release the ON•OFF key repeatedly until your component turns off. Each time you press the ON•OFF key, the illuminated ON•OFF key blinks, and the next
code in the list is sent. This process continues until all of the codes in the Code Lists have been searched. If your component turns off, you have found the correct code.
TIP: Because there are so many codes, you may have to press the ON•OFF key many times-possibly up to 200 times.
7. Once you have found the correct code, you must save the new code by pressing and releasing the STOP key. The illuminated ON•OFF key turns off. You must press the STOP key to save the code or the correct code will not be stored!
8. To confirm that the component key is programmed with the correct code for maximum functionality, test the component. Attempt to control a variety of the component's functions with the remote. If some of the features of your components do not work, try programming the remote with a different code in the list until you find the code that allows the remote to control the majority of your component's functions. Different codes can provide different levels of functionality.

It's the gear drive. There are kits online for about $40, if you're semi-handy you can replace it yourself. Search for liftmaster replacement parts.

My Sharp Remote Control Is Suddenly Stop Working


Ok I just dealt with the Sharp customer support for this problem.

1) You need to unplug the TV for 1 full minute and remove the batteries from your remote aswell (this will reset the system)
2) Hold the power button on the remote for 30 seconds with the batteries still out of the remote and the TV still unplugged
3) After the 30 seconds replace batteries then press every button on the remote beginning with the power button in order from left to right and top to bottom (same way you read)
4) Then plug your tv back in and try the remote again.... and the remote and TV should be back in sync.

Remote trouble


Did you clean the contacts between the rubber remote buttons and the wafer board below it? Rubbing alcohol works best. Sometimes when enough dirt gets in, it gets harder to work. If you HAVE cleaned that, I got nothing for you... Get a video camera and see if it is sending a signal at all, and determine that the problem is with the remote and not the IR receiver.
