Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

I bought a second hand philips Plasma TV. The remote or so I thought was not working. Using the model no 50PF9967D bought a new remote (RC4312/EU) After following all instructions given my new remote still does not work the TV. The twist is that my brother in law has a very similar model and his remote works my TV. AHHHHHHH. Can anyone offer me any advice? Does my new remote need program codes? PLEASE HELP

    I got some more useful info for you.

    To program a component using the Automatic Code Search method, perform the following steps:

    1. Turn on the component you want the remote control to operate.

    2. Press and release the component button that corresponds to the component you want the remote control to operate.

    3. The illuminated ON-OFF button turns on and remains on.

    4. Press and hold both the component and ON-OFF buttons.

    5. The illuminated ON-OFF button turns off.

    6. After the illuminated ON-OFF button turns back on, release both buttons.

    7. The illuminated ON-OFF button remains on.

    8. If
      you press an invalid button during Auto Code Search, the illuminated
      ON-OFF button blinks four times and turns off. The last programmed code
      under that component button is retained.

    9. Press and release the PLAY button.

    10. If,
      after five seconds, the component does not respond, continue to press
      the PLAY button every five seconds until the component turns off.

    11. Each
      time the Play button is pressed, the illuminated ON-OFF button blinks
      ten times and a block of 10 codes is sent to your component. This
      process continues until all the codes in the Code Lists have been
      searched. If the component has not turned off after all codes have been
      searched, the illuminated ON-OFF button blinks four times, turns off,
      and the Auto Code Search Entry method is exited.

    12. When
      the component turns off, press and release the REVERSE button, then
      wait two seconds to see if the component turns on again.

    13. If
      the component does not respond, continue to press the REVERSE button
      every two seconds until the component turns on again. This will isolate
      the correct code in the last block of codes sent. Each time the REVERSE
      button is pressed, the illuminated ON-OFF button blinks.

    14. If
      the REVERSE button is accidentally pressed after the component
      responds, press and release the FORWARD button. Wait two seconds to see
      if the component turns off again.

    15. To save the new code, press and release the STOP button.

    16. The illuminated ON-OFF button turns off. You must press the STOP button to save the code.

    17. If
      some of the features of your component do not work, different codes in
      the list can be tried until you find the code that allows the remote to
      control the majority of your component’s functions.

    One more thing to program it you will need the manual it is different
    for every model but still try this out too..And please don't forget to
    accept my solution as fixya.

    To program your remote to control your TV, follow these steps:







    TV (BLINK)



    1. Manually turn on the TV.

    2. Locate the enclosed TV Code List. Find

    your brand of TV.

    : If your brand is not listed, use one

    of the Code Search methods to program

    this remote control. (See section on

    Code Search.)

    3. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH key

    until the indicator light illuminates.

    Then release the CODE SEARCH key.

    4. Press and release the TV key. The indicator

    light blinks and then remains lit.

    5. Use the number keys to enter the first

    code listed for your brand. After you

    enter a valid three-digit code, the

    indicator light turns off.

    : If you enter an invalid code, the

    LED flashes rapidly for two seconds.

    Start over at step 3.

    6. Aim the remote at your TV and press

    the ON•OFF key. If your TV turns off,

    you have found the correct code.

    7. Enter the code in the box provided on

    this page for future reference.

    8. If your TV doesn’t turn off, repeat steps

    3-6 above, entering the next code for

    your brand.

    If none of the codes work or your brand

    is not listed, use one of the Code Search

    methods to program this remote.

    (See Code Search section on page 10.)

    Your RCA Universal Remote is compatible with most brands (of infrared remote

    controlled components manufactured after 1990). Below is a list showing some

    of those brands. Check the enclosed Code List for a complete listing along with

    their corresponding popular setup codes for quick and easy reference.

The "EU" appendix indicates this remote is for use with the European or UK models of this television. Your unit may require a different remote spec (USA?)

I'd steal your brother-in-laws! (Or at least check the remote model number on his to compare to yours...)

1 Answer the remote what

If the problem is the IR sensor, then the TV will turn on and work using the buttons on TV, but wont react to remote.

If instead the TV does not turn on all all , then the TV is on protection because of an internal fault , and must be tested and fixed by a technician.

Replacing IR sensor is not complicate, but t is not an user level operation.
The IR sensor is usually located on the front bottom side of the TV, therefore to replace it you need to remove the main board completely, and many other parts.
Additionally on many models the sensor is soldered to the digital board.

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.
