I would just send in to the manufacturer or go buy a universal for the TV. Most remotes that come with TV are not that special. Less hassel to get a new one.

I have a hampton bay ceiling fan/light and the remote came with it. The remote model is: UC7083T. The battery died and when I installed a new battery, the remote willnot connect with the fan/light. Any...


try turning off the switch/circuit breaker at the main lighting panel. Then just turn it back on. Worked for me.
I'm guessing a capacitor in the remote is holding a charge and causing the problem. You'll probably need a new remote soon thiough.

Have about a 30 second window to replace batteries before all codes are lost and when you put in the new batteries it goes into programing mode. Re-enter codes and try it again. Have the same remote and it has happened to me before.

New ML-L3 remote light doesn't shine


It's an infrared light (like on the remote control for your TV) and you shouldn't be able to see it.

Set the camera's shooting mode to one of the two remote modes. Quick-response remote takes a picture as soon as you push the button on the remote. Delayed-response remote waits two seconds so you can hide the remote behind your back.

I have this item and the batteries are brand new and installed the correct way. It just does not work.


You can test to see if your remote is actually putiing out signal, just point the remote at the digital camera, you should see flashing light on your camera screen when you push any buttons on the remote, if you do see the light, then the problem will be in the remote receiver in the TV itself.

Have a new Phillips 42" lcd tv. my cable box remote has been working intermittently. However the white light near the remote sensor on the TV blinks whenever I use the cable remote. after changing bat


your TV and, your cable box both "see" a series of invisible (infared) flashes of light like morse code these flases tell them what to do.one answer is to: buy a universal remote so that you can program a button for each device then when you want to control the cable box just push the "cable" button and, then volume etc. to turn your tv off push "tv" then "off" the service man was right but he should have explained this to you
also your cable remote may be programable to work with your tv like a universal remote check with your cable co.

Remote won't work


Is it a multi-device remote at all?
This set is probably a rebranded Samsung so you might try their codes or check Samsung's website for a code listing for that model.
