Air conditioning unit remote control problem

Hi! Our National/Panasonic split type airconditioning unit is over 7 years old. The remote control conked out yesterday and the Panasonic Service Center said they don't carry replacements for our model anymore.

I was wondering if there's a way to salvage the remote control since the AC unit still works perfectly. The remote turns the AC on and off but a) the display/LCD goes blank unless you press a button; b) the temperature gauge is stuck at 25-27C; c) if you try to change the mode and fan level, it keeps resetting. The batteries are new so it can't be that.

Help, please. The Service Center barely stopped short at saying we should just replace the unit.

When something is broke you can never break it worse so dig in and look for a stuck button or broken piece of plastic lodged in between the buttons or
you may want to go to: harmony web site and see if your model of a/c is supported these remotes are rather expensive us$129-$499 but much less than replacing the A/C and can control 225,000 devices made by 5000 different manufacturers just about any device under the sun. on the website under device choose home automation then climate control your brand then model number to see if your A/C is there. If you decide to go this route I would reccomend to check all the other devices you have also.

Hi I have a panasonic split air conditioner. It turns itself off immediately after turning on, the timer button then flashes and that's all.... I have checked for an error code it is H00. I have also made...


Hi Tania,
Have you gone through this checking sequence.? it's from a Panasonic a/c manual. It could be something as simple as a clogged filter. Once you have rectified the fault, you will probably have to clear the fault code as described at bottom below, before it will condescend to work again.

  • Once error occurred during operation, the unit will stop its operation, and Timer LED blinks.
  • Although Timer LED goes off when power supply is turned off, if the unit is operated under a breakdown condition, the LED will ON again.
  • In operation after breakdown repair, the Timer LED will not blink. The last error code (abnormality) will be stored
    in IC memory.
14.2.2 To Make a Diagnosis

  1. 1 Timer LED starts to blink and the unit automatically stops the operation.
  2. 2 Press the CHECK button on the remote control continuously for 5 seconds.
  3. 3 "- -" will be displayed on the remote control display.
    Note: Display only for "- -" (No signal transmission, no receiving sound and no Power LED blinking)
  4. 4 Press the TIMER ? or ? button on the remote control. The code "H00" (no abnormality) will be displayed and signal will be transmit to the main unit.
  5. 5 Each press of the button (? or ?) will increase error code number and transmit error code signal to the main unit.
  6. 6 When the latest abnormality code on the main unit and code
    transmitted from the remote control are matched, Power LED will
    light up for 30 seconds and a "beep" sound (continuously for 4
    seconds) will be heard. If no codes are matched, Power LED will light up for 0.5 seconds and no sound will be heard.
  7. 7 The breakdown diagnosis mode will be canceled unless pressing the CHECK button continuously for 5 seconds or operating the unit for 30 seconds.
  8. 8 The LED will be off if the unit is turned off or the RESET button on the main unit is pressed.
14.2.3 To Display Memorized Error Code (Protective Operation)
  1. 1 Turn power on.
  2. 2 Press the CHECK button on the remote control
  3. 3 "- -" will be displayed on the remote control display. Note: Display only for "- -" (No signal transmission, no receiving sound and no Power LED blinking)
  4. 4 Press the TIMER ? or ? button on the remote control. The code "H00" (no abnormality) will be displayed
    and signal will be transmit to the main unit.
  5. 5 Each press of the button (? or ?) will increase error code number and transmit error code signal to the main
    unit.
  6. 6 When the latest abnormality code on the main unit and code transmitted from the remote control are matched,
    Power LED will light up for 30 seconds and a "beep" sound (continuously for 4 seconds) will be heard. If no
    codes are matched, Power LED will light up for 0.5 seconds and no sound will be heard.
  7. 7 The breakdown diagnosis mode will be canceled unless pressing the CHECK button continuously for 5
    seconds or operating the unit for 30 seconds.
  8. 8 The same diagnosis can be repeated by turning power on again.
14.2.4 To Clear Memorized Error Code after Repair (Protective Operation)

  1. 1 Turn power on (in standby condition).
  2. 2 Press the AUTO button for 5 seconds (a "beep" sound is heard) on the main unit to operate the unit at Forced Cooling Operation Mode.
  3. 3 Press the CHECK button on the remote control for about 1 second with a pointed object to transmit signal to
    main unit. A "beep" sound is heard, and the Error Code is cleared

Kelvinator Split System Air Conditioner not turning on.


On some remotes there is a reset button which is pressed by using the nib of a pen. Or if this does not work you should look under the cover for a manual button, most units have one, and see if the aircon responds. I suspect your remote sensor is faulty, but try the previous suggestions first.
