If it is a direct tv remote they will replace it for a minimal charge. If it is a remote from the tv, the manafacturer will replace it within a year and if you bought an extended warrantyfrom a store most will replace it free of charge. Except circuit city. They wont help you not one bit

Can't turn on TV not on standby

Hi Dave,
You have not mentioned anything about the brand and model of your tv. Anyway, If your remote control is working and your tv is not turning on means either the main board is not supplying "power on" command to the power supply section or the power supply is receiving this command but not responding to it. Please consult some local TV tech to solve your problem.
Good luck.

My vizio remote works but the tv doesn't respond. I replaced the remote anyway but it still doe not work. resetting tv doen't work what is next?

It is possible the remotes are either bad or not compatible to the tv. Recheck the remote type and the batteries to see it that helps.

Dstv remote not working on any blue dials? Two tv's in separate rooms, one pvr decoder. Only the red dial works on both tv's & both remotes are working & both tvs responding properly.

Is this a newly installed system? If both tv's are responding to the same remote setting (red in case), it means both tv's are set to the same channel. The tv that is connected to the decoder directly (via AV cables, I presume) is supposed to respond to if the remote is set to red. In order for the second tv to respond when the remote is set to blue, you need to tune the second tv until you find the picture of tv2 (the decoder transmits both tv1 and tv2 on the RF/coaxial output and it seems that your remote tv is tuned to tv1 instead of tv2).

T. V. stuck on one channel showing the device option.

I had same problem and discovered one of the little buttons on the front of the TV was stuck down. Don't know why, unless the maid bumped it hard as we never use them. Anyway, I poked/wiggled a few times at each button and the problem stopped.

Hi Jasmine - Let me know if it says RC32 in the top left of your remote. If so, just to the right of that, there is a switch that slides left and right. This chooses which device you are currently controlling with your remote. To control your Directv, just slide the switch all the way to the left. You probably have the switch slid all the way to the right. This for the TV. The two in the middle are for other devices. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks and have a good day.

SHARP T.V. not responding to remote, but remote isn't broken

Same thing happened to my Sharp 29 inch. Stopped responding to original remote the first time, but a universal worked fine. Eventually it stopped responding too all universal remotes. The remotes are good, they work with my VCR, DVD player, and Receiver. It's a nice TV, but having to get up and adjust the volume every commercial break got old a few decades ago! If anyone has any other possible solutions aside from getting the sensor replaced...would be great to hear it.

Set top box and remote control

I have the same problem. When I move the 8300HDC away from the TV, or power off the TV, the remote responds. There seems to be some kind of RF interference, which makes no sense since the TV shouldn't emit RF, and the the box should be using IR only for remote input. My TV is a 46" LCD Samsung. Try turning off the TV and see if the 8300HDC responds to powering on and off with the remote.

My TV won't respond to the remote control

If the remote is working but the TV will not respond, it means that the little IR receiver in the TV has stopped working. This is most likely because the receiver has burned out, but it could also have come loose. This is a very easy thing to correct, but the set should be serviced by a qualified tech.

Hortizontal line

From your description of the problem, there seems to be a Cold solder in the Vertical Oscillator or Deflection Coil circuits. If you know Solid State electronics, and are good with a soldering Iron, sure u can do this yourself. U gotta trace the Vertical section components and locate the cold solder. In most cases it will be a loose connector from the Deflection coil to the main PCB.Also check for the soldering of the Vertical output IC.
