Sounds like the IR pickup has gone bad or the supply voltages feeding it are opened. Sometimes cleaning the screen with windex it tends to drip inside as it follows the picture tube down into the set . Most of the time replacing the IR cures your problem. Good luck

My remote control will not work despite putting in new batteries. If Lkeft for a few hours it will work a couple of times before not working again.


Maybe time for a new remote. But first, try some different batteries and make sure there is clear path from the remote to the unit. If you have a universal remote, program it for the TV first and try it. If it works, your other remote should be replaced or use the Universal remote to control the TV.

Was given a loewe tv aconda no remote where can i buy and can i use a universal remote.


I worked in a shop that fixed these sets and tried many universal remotes and not one worked. The remotes from the parts depot in the new york area are very expensive----about 80 dollars wholesale.

You will find some on EBAY from time to time. When we stopped fixing these sets I got two brand new ones which I have in my collection. I would if you search EBAY you may find one.

typical part numbers are like: 87000-066 etc.

I have attached a photo of what they look like. There are minor differences but any of them should work your set fine.

It is very very rare for this to happen. I would try other remote or you can google universal remote codes and look for other codes.

Universal Remote not working


With nearly all brands of universal remote control, there is usually more than one code for Philips. Keep going through the codes until you find one that works correctly.

So if you know that the 1st code doesn't work, then don't save it, and move to the next.

You may find that several codes will actually put the TV into standby, but other functions will be different.

Comcst remote control code not working


look on the label on the back of your Emerson TV. Read the small print and see if there is a possible different manufacturer that actually made the Emerson TV. Just because it says emerson doesn't mean emerson made it. Also if no luck there try the UL listing code and search that code to the UL listing website. That may help also.

Remote does not work for TV


I assume you had new batteries in the original remote and that the Universal remote was programmed correctly for your TV.

Are there any lights on the old remote that flash when you press a button? If so, does it light?

If the TV doesn't respond to a remote, and the remote is verified to be in working order, then the infrared sensor in the TV is defective amd needs replaced.

Good Luck,

Remote No Longer Works


It appears the remote sensor in the Television itself has stopped working. If the TV is still under warranty I would try to contact the manufacturer to see what they can do for you. Can you still change channels manually? If so, this is most likely the case.

Remote randomly works. 27" Symphonic TV... but remote works on other Symphonics in the house


I would get a new remote control first. Just because it is the same brand doesn't mean the same reote codes are used.
