Problems with my Apex CHKT2A remote

I can not turn my TV off or on, change stations, or control the sound using my remote. I put in new batteries, and the remote still does not function.
When ever I press a button, the red light comes on but nothing happens.
Since this TV was purchased in 2003, the remore does not have any program codes.
I am now wondering, if the remote needs to be replaced.

I've seen remote sensors that quit but it's rare, usually due to water getting dripped on them from cleaning. Pick up a cheap programmable remote and see if it will work. Long shot, check the menu, in some sets the remote can be programmed off.

The DT250 likely has one or more bad 470uf 25v capacitors. You should replace all four. Look at some of these youtube videos for how do do the replacement.

I do not have the manual for my JVC TV. Having problems setting the proper channel number to get my Directv stations


Use a generic universal remote. Program the remote to your JVC tv. Use the newly programmed remote to put your JVC tv on channel 3 (or 4) or the appropriate channel for Direct TV.

Picture and sound go out and remote isn't working properly


Take the original Mitsubishi remote and remove the batteries. Install new fresh batteries and then try to operate the set. Do not try to use any of the inputs that are active. Just check menu funtions with the mits remote. All kinda irrational stuff happens when multiple and universal remotes get involved. If this a model remote that has a selector switch at the top for choosing tv/sat/vcr, etc make sure it's on tv.

NO SOUND FROM MY APEX GB5108 TV


I had the same problem with mine, it turned out to be a fried audio board. I simply used the audio outputs on the back of the tv to drive a new reciever with surround. Sound a heck of a lot better than the speakers built into the tv.

I have a old rca tv. today when I turned the tv on the stations just keep changing and its a static. What could make that happen?


there are a few possibilities. Only two of which you can correct.

First, blow some pressurized air into the remote control, especially around the channel up and down buttons.

Second, see if the channel changing stops when you remove the remote battery.

third, blow compressed air into the channel up and down buttons on the tv.

If you are still have the problem then you have an internal part to replace and we recommend you use our premium service for that.

Good luck.
