I have a RC28T1-27 Remote that suddenly no longer works. Put in new batteries and it seems like there is no connection. Will not work unless you keep pressing buttons repeatively.

The problem is that the broadcasting antenna at the top of the remote is very a very thin wire wrapped around a heavy cylindrical magnet and its solder points are extremely weak. You most likely dropped it and it came loose. I re-soldered mine and it worked perfectly.... until it broke again. The leads are very small and hard to fix.
Chalk it up to poor design.
It is hard to take apart.... I got mine apart by wedging a screwdriver in and twisting until it popped apart. (nothing broke) I started at a bottom corner and worked my way up the side until it came loose. It is a fairly easy fix if you know how to solder.

My comcast remote was working with my Motorola dct700/us box and now suddenly stopped working


Put in new batteries or check that the battery contact points inside the remote are free of rust or acid build-up from leaking batteries.

The remote control sensor on the TV has stopped working


Hi,

If new batteries did not fix the problem, then it means the problem is either from the remote or the TV.

Remote: Check the remote battery terminal, see if its not rust. Also, disassemble the remote, can check the connection between the terminal and the remote board, see if there is no disconnection of any kind.

If after checking and all seems well, then it means the remote is defective. To confirm, borrow a remote, test it with the TV. If it works, then it means you need to replace your remote. But if the remote you borrowed does not work, then it means the problem is from the TV and not the remote.

TV: There is a sensor in the TV that communicates with the remote. If this sensor is defective, the remote won't communicate with the TV.

The TV sensor might have loosed contact from inside of the TV or it maybe defective and need to be replaced.

So do the above troubleshooting and let me know if the problem is from the TV or remote. If problem is from the remote, you need to do a replacement. But if otherwise, let me knows as well.

Regards.

The remote on my 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix has slowly gotten weaker and now all I can work is the trunk and panic button functions. I have the second remote that has not been used for months and worked fine...


OK, if a new battery has been put into the unit and that rectifies the situation, then you may have to keep on putting fresh batteries into the remote to keep it working optimally.I have never heard of a a wireless remote system having to be 'woken up.' In this digital age, either the remote will work or not depending on how much of a charge or voltage the battery has in it for the remote. Perhaps, using one more than the other remote causes one to have more or less charge compared to the other.

There is nothing that can be done besides changing the battery in the remote. Perhaps try a Lithium battery if you haven't already done so for longer life.

Good luck on this.

I can't get remote to work unless i am right next to dvr. dvr will not pick up commands from remote unless i am within 12 inches of unit most of the time. other times it will work from my bed about 15 feet...


Take you an alcohol wipe and clean the front panel of the sensor on the unit and the little bulb on the remote.  Take out the batteries and spray a little WD-40 on a rag and wipe the copper connections inside the remote.  Put new alkaline batteries in and you should be g to g.

Wii remote will not work new batteries just blink all


Hey Jack, How many remotes are you able to connect at a time? If you have multiple remotes try turning the ones you know that work off, and putting them in another room(so you know they will not try to connect). Then try connecting with the bad one. If that doesn't work you might have to sync the remote: hold down the red sync button on the wii, located next to the sd card slot, while holding down the red button on the remote, located under the battery cover on the back. Now try connecting. If it still doesn't work, the LED lights in the sensor bar might have burned out, this happens a lot when you keep your sensor bar directly on your tv without the stand(the tv gets hot and burns out the lights), a lot of people do this because the stand looks bad. Go buy a new sensor bar, they sell them at wal-mart for $20, plus they're wireless, so you don't have to worry about that thin little wire popping. Test the new wii bar, if it's still not working, then you're remote is just worthy of getting returned.
hope this helps! -cj

30HF85 TV with CT-877 remote, which doesn't work.


I had the same problem with my remote...over time it slowly stopped working. (sorry for poor terminology) I noticed that one of the battery terminals was corroded and that the metal connecting the battery to the board was completely gone. I simply swapped this out with one from another remote and now its working fine. Seems the only issue is that the battery was not connected.

I hope this helps.
