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.

Is there any way to turn on my RCA flat screen TV without a remote?


There might be a power switch on the front panel.

if the remote does not work, the replacement batteries could be defective or installed incorrectly.

The "light" on the front of the remote emits infra-red signals so you are unlikely to be able to see anything.

Hello
If you are using its original remote control handset with this set, replacing batteries will poise no problem at all. If remote control does not works properly check the following.

Check to see if there is any object between the TV and the remote control
causing obstruction.
Are batteries installed with correct polarity (+ to +, - to -)?
Correct remote operating mode set: TV, VCR etc.?
The light at its side

Illuminates the remote control
buttons of selected mode.
OK.

i had this problem using dish network. my dish remote went bad so i got a new one and as soon as i programmed it volume and channel had mind of its own on both the dish remote and the original tv remote. you would hit it once and volume would go to max and vice versa when going down. ended up being the new remote was set on the uhf setting and i had to reset to the ir setting which is a small switch in remote next to batteries and then reset system info in dish receiver. problem went away instantly. both remotes work fine now. took two days to figure out and spent hours on internet looking for solution but no one had one. hope this helps.

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.

My remote for my akai pdp42z5ta stopped working


Stevenson

Yes, I can help you either fix the original or get you a brand new one. By the way, did you change the batteries. I know you did, but this procedure is the first step. If you change the batteries and the remote doesn't work, the problem can be inside the remote, specially if it happen to be dropped. Or the sensor in front the tv may be bad if does not respond to the remote. The best way to check the remote control is with infrared checker, an special equipment I have at the shop. I can ckeck it with that for you and fix it as well. Please e-mail me at Stevebuy31@hotmail.com

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.
