Testing remote control:
The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera’s Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera’s screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the TV IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals.

It could be the remote sensor within the TV. Does the remote work with other TVs?

Make sure the remote is set to operate your tv and not a cable box or accesory. It's in the menu

My devices suddenly stopped responding to my remote even though the remote looks to be working normally


Remove batteries, let it sit for a minuit then put in some fresh batteries.

Still not working?

Plug it back into your computer and load Harmony Remote software. Click on "update remote" this will reload the firmware and programming.

I've had a couple harmony remotes go wackey on me but normally re-loading the programming or putting in fresh batteries fixes em right up!

Cheers,

Try cleaning the contacts that connect to the batteries. A pencil eraser will clean the contacts.

Check the micro processor control whether it is in manual mode or not. If not check the sensor whether it is functioning or not. If everything is fine then remote control has to be changed.

Sony RM-Y180 remote control


Did you install the batteries correctly?
Some remotes (Universal) need to be re-programed when you install new batteries.
Go to remotefinder.rca.com/default.aspx?site=rca for proper codes.

Remote has stopped working for Philips LX3000 D


The remote control might be damaged. If it is possible to arrange a new remote for testing, do it. volume control of LX3000D works from the front PCB. check the front PCB is perfectly ok or not. Regarding the DVD player, what it says when you try to load a disk?
