Missing plastic circle: remote doesn't function

The remote to my TV/VCR just stopped working. It has been dropped many times in the past so I thought it was just too beat up. Noticed that the little plastic circle was missing from the front of the tv. Is that part called an infrared sensor? Do I need to replace it or is my remote control at fault?

If the remote sensor cover is missing on the TV, the remote would still work but you may get other effects like the TV changing channels on it own.
This is due to stray infra red signals.
If it's not working at all I would suspect the remote control handset.
You can test it by pointing it at a digital camera lens and watching the display screen on the camera.
You should see white light comming from the remote when you press any of the buttons if it's working.
Digital cameras can see infrared.

How do i programe my dish remote to my Sanyo tv and to my dish reciever


The Dish TV remote control allows you to program the TV, VCR and DVD codes so that all you need is one remote. Most TVs can be programmed into the remote using specific codes in the Dish TV remote manual. But if you don't have a manual or list of codes, you can program the remote manually.


Instructions 1. Using Programming Codes

Find the TV code for your TV in the list from the Platinum Remote Control User's Guide (See References). For example, if you have a Kenwood TV, the three possible codes to try are 506, 573 and 712.

Press the "TV" button on the remote. Hold down the button until the "Sat," "VCR" and "Aux" buttons light up. Release the "TV" button and it will be flashing.

Enter the first code using the keypad. If you want the remote to control all functions on the TV, enter the code and press the # key. The "TV" button will flash three times.

Press the power button to turn off the TV and turn it back on again. If the code was correct, the TV will turn off and on. If the TV doesn't power down or back on, follow Step 6.

Try the next code from the list. Follow Steps 2 through 4 using each code until one turns off the TV.
2. Programming Without Codes

Press the "TV" button on the remote. Hold down the button until the "Sat," "VCR" and "Aux" buttons light up. Release the "TV" button and it will be flashing.

Press and release the "Power" button on the remote.
Press the arrow up key and stop. If the TV doesn't turn off, press the arrow up key again. Continue pressing the arrow up key until the TV turns off. Do not go fast when moving through the codes or you could miss the correct code. Press the arrow key and wait at least 20 seconds to see if the code works before pressing the arrow key again.


Press the # button on the remote control when the TV turns off ot lock the code.

VHS won't work


Had the same problem on my JVC vcr/dvd combo unit.
You need to turn off the timer function. I did this by making sure my remote was in the "VHS" mode...turn the swith from TV to the right (found on the remote in the upper left corner...an then hit the "vcr" button. Then point the remote at the VCR unit and hit the No. 4 button (timer turns off). Your unit should not have the red timer displayed and you should be able to play your tapes okay.

Hope this helps.

Television is not responding properly to the remote


You need a brand new one of THESE and they are priced from 10.95 to 39.95 or less than the bench time to "fix" the vcr button on your remote, and since remotes are always coming up missing, you will
have a spare for all functions except the vcr and a basis of comparison for future troubleshooting processes as other functions fail, if any such failure should occur.

Forgot how to set remote up with tv


For the RCA RCR412S you might find that it doesn function like the manual says it should be functioning. In my case the Direct Entry method didn't work with my Sharp TV or my Panasonic VCR. I then had to figure out how the Automatic Search method worked because the manual was incorrect. Here is how to program the RCR412S using the Automatic Search method:

1) Turn on the component you want to control (TV, VCR, DVD)
2) Press and hold BOTH the component button on the remote and the On-Off button
3) The On-Off button remains lit. Now press Play (The On-Off button will blink)
4) If, after five seconds, the component does not respond, continue to press the PLAY button every five seconds until the component turns off.
5) When the component turns off, press and release the REVERSE button, then wait two seconds to see if the component turns on again.
6) To save the new code, when the illuminated ON-OFF button turns off, press and release the STOP button.

Remote stops working


Your remote is going bad and the only solution is to buy another one or buy a universal but it will only let you use the basic functions like play,rew,ff , stop and on time recording, I don think it will let you program for recording it or use the menu,a new remote will cost almost as much as a new VCR.The universal is a very inexpensive option.
