This is a generic answer that applies to many multi unit remotes

Many remotes have to be trained. the user manual contains a list of code series that identify to the remote what equipment the remote is intended to control. changing batteries may erase the prom that this information is recorded in.
From either the printed manual or by looking up the manufacturers web site from descriptive labels on or in the remote, you can determine the (usually) 3 digit code for your tv dvd video audio units and the button that begins programming mode sop that you can press the unit button, enter the code, press the button to confirm. and be done

My specific remote requires

Hold [menu] untill the red lamp flashes 3 times
press [dvd]
enter the code on the number pad
press [dvd]
press [tv]
enter the code on the number pad
press [tv]
press [vcr]
enter the code on the number pad
press [vcr]
press [audio]
enter the code on the number pad
press [audio]
press [aux]
enter the code on the number pad
press [aux]
press [menu]

thankfully the remote recharges on the dvd player, and I only did that once

Panasonic DMR-EX88 recorder was working fine but remote has stopped working so cant get to the hard drive (can still play a disk by pressing play on the unit). Remote started working intermittently, now...


Either the remote itself is exhibiting strange behaviour, or the unit's IRD controller circuit (and/or the IRD itself) is faulty. Perhaps when you changed the batteries, the remote needs to be 're-commanded' (that means entering a remote code by pressing and holding 2 buttons together for 10 seconds - example - 1 + ENTER/OK) - this should be done whenever the batteries are replaced. If this does not restore the remote to full control, then the IRD (and/or its controller circuit) is the most likely suspect; or, worst case scenario; your remote is defective. I hope it isn't the latter.

I suggest you submit the unit to an authorised service centre for a quote (since this is not a disc drive replacement/alignment it shouldn't be too expensive) then you can decide for yourself afterwards as to what further action to take. Up to you, it is not unfixable. You can always ask Panasonic directly for straight answers and get a second opinion at the same time.

I hope you do not need a new remote at this stage.

I've changed my batteries but my remote still doesn't work properly. It will turn the player on and off but will do nothing else. I can't get into the menu or anything. What's the problem? I also have...


it means your remote is not defective in batterynya only. you must open the remote case and you will see a small part of yellow color is called Crystal Filter oscilator, this part should be replaced. if the result is the same as before you should also replace the remote sensor LED

Samsung DVD r135 no reaction using remote control but recorder reacts on remote control from Samsung TV, batteries check. Disconnect the recorder from the power over night no change, still own remote...


Try this. Remove the batteries from the recorder's remote control and hold down the POWER button on it for 30 seconds. Then replace the batteries with fresh ones. It should work fine after that.
If not, the remote control may be defective.
You can purchase a new remote control at www.samsungparts.com

Remote control will not work new battery installed I have a GPX and the remote control does not work. I have changed batteries and made sure the wires are not running in front of the DVD player


First we need to know if the remote is working. Heres the "secret" way to check a remote. Use a cell phone w/camera.

  • Set the cell phone to camera
  • while watching the camera screen and a known good remote, aim the remote at the lens and press a button (volume works well) on the remote (not a device button ie; sat,tv,vcr,etc). You should see lights turn on/flash. Now you know your camera can detect IR light.
  • Do the same again with the remote in question. If there is no IR light output, the remote is the problem. replace the batteries, ensure good battery contact, retest the remote.
If the remote is working then the problem is in the unit.

Let me know what you find.

Neat trick, huh? Please take the time to rate this.

Hi,

You said that you have changed the batteries.
While you're checking the batteries, make sure that the contacts for the batteries aren't corroded or bent. You can clean them with a pencil eraser followed by a nail file. If necessary, gently bend them back to their correct position.

Try these too,
  • Go up to the receiver and try changing the channels without using the Remote Control.
  • Refer to the Remote Control setup instructions, and make sure you have the correct codes programmed for your equipment.
  • Make sure nothing is blocking the front of the receiver (e.g., furniture).
  • Make sure you are operating the Remote Control within 20 feet of the receiver.
If all the above doesnt work,
Then

Either the remote or the receptor on the device is not functioning.

1. Use an Infrared Sensor Card to see if the remote is sending a signal.

2. If the remote is sending a signal, it used to control that device, and no other solution works, you should have a service center look at the device and remote to determine the problem and if it can be fixed.

Thanx for using fixya....
