You have to make sure the problem isn't with the remote. If you can borrow a remote or try to get a universal remote. If it responds at all then the problem was just your remote. that is a cheap annoying problem. If it still won't respond then it is a problem on the mainboard. It can be the infrared receiver or something else. If you can get a repair estimate that will tel you if it is worth fixing. You need to know what a replacement is worth and then add up all the costs for the repair ie shipping, repair bill, taxes etc. Even though the tv remote doesn't work the tv itself should continue to run just fine. You can put it on a cable box and then use the box to control channel and sound. That gets around buying a new tv and saves a few $$.

My Toshiba TV, Model 57HX81 quit responding to any remote control. How do we repair that or how much will it cost to have it serviced?


Does the rest of the TV work fine? If so, the problem is likely with the remote control. Have you replaced the batteries and made sure they are installed correctly? Did batteries recently leak in the remote to where the new batteries may not be making good contact with the metal springs? Has the remote been dropped a lot? If so, a solder joint may be broken for the IR transmitter.

If you have a universal remote that can be programmed to the TV model, that should make it easy to confirm if the issue is the remote or the TV.

Remote control stopped working on Mitsubishi WS-65615. The front panel controls still work, is there any easy fix for this?


sesontcket,

For the cost of remotes it is not worth trying to fix them. You can get an exact replacement remote at http://remotes.com/ or probably for less a universal remote at any Walmart or Target for less than $10.00. The All-In-One brand seems to have the most features and is the most reliable.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Volume control on remote does not always work. Is there something under the button that wears out? How to get inside remote to repair.


Hi, it's easy to fix. Most time when a remote volume control buttons does not work, it's usually caused by dirt inside or water spilt on the remote control, And when the button inside has moist, it responds slowly and does not respond at all.

What to do is this, Open the remote control, you will see a panel inside that controls the button functions. Use a cloth to wipe the all panel inside and close it back. Your done!!!.

But if it still those the same way,that means the damage is beyond repairs, You willneedto get another remote...

Hope it helps.

Thanks for using fixya....

Samsung LN32B360 32" LCD HDTV (Black) DOES NOT POWER ON


Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. Or, it maybe something simple like a blown fuse inside the TV. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.

3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.


I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Not repond The remote control


Hi, Unfortunatly, Philips had a design flaw from the manufacturer. You will need to have it serviced by a technician,but the replacement part is called an I.R. Board. It should only cost about 2 or 3 dollars,but the labor is the main cost of the repair,which you have a warranty for.

Emprex HD 3202 control panel not operating


My first thought then is that the main board may have capacitor damage that will affect the boards ability to "understand" the control signals, if you can I would have the tv looked at at a service center for damaged boards and components, might be an easy fix but might not be (new boards), The lcd panel is good that can net you several hundred dollars at a min.
peope break them all the time and a simple change out is worth several hundred dollars, vs a new tv

Remote i on tv


From elsewhere... in case it helps


"...and an intermittent problem responding to the
remote. I had a service person check it out and was going to have it
repaired because it still looks and sounds very good. The part was
available at a cost of about $85-90 plus about $40 for the service.
However, the service person didn't want to come back again for
another service call because I was too far and it was not profitable
for him, so the part was never replaced.

The remote control is OK. It is the receiving module in the TV that
has a low voltage problem. If anyone is electronically handy it
probably is an easy fix to install a new module or it can be use
without the remote with the buttons on the TV."

TV won't respond to remote(s)


I don't know of any adjustments for the IR receiver but the receiver itself could have gone bad or something may be blocking the IR lens not letting the IR signal get through. Maybe (but unusual) there may be a cold solder joint in the IR circuit. Sometimes dust will collect on the inside of the IR lens causing this problem. You can verify the operation of your remotes by holding them close to an AM radio receiver and pushing the buttons. You'll hear a popping sound through the radio speaker whenever a button is pushed. You may have to tune the radio up or down the band to pick up the remote's signal. Stargazer
