Question about Directv RC32RFK Remote Control

Weird battery size

I recently got a message on my TV saying that my batteries are low and I should replace them.

I took the batteries out and tried to replace them with some other AA batteries I had, only to find that the batteries that the remote came with (http://www.consumer.philips.com/consumer/en/us/consumer/cc/_productid_R6LS2A_27_US_CONSUMER/Battery+R6LS2A-27) are a different size than "normal" AA batteries.

I took the weird-sized batteries to Target, but they didn't have any AA's except standard sized ones.

Where do you all get your batteries from? Should I just jam some regular AA's in there? They'd fit (I think) but it's be extremely tight and I'm worried that I won't be able to get them out when they die and then I'll have to buy a new remote.

This is really frustrating. I don't know why they couldn't manufacture their remotes to use normal AA batteries.

Here's a link on the Directv forums. They suggest putting a small ball of aluminum foil between the positive terminal on the battery and the contact on the remote.

TV remote won't work after changing batteries


When battery is changed, all the previous settings will be lost from the remote control. You should once again set it to your device, using codes.

When I try to change the channel, the "TV" button blinks, yet the channel doesn't change.. What do I do?


Hi,

This is usually due to low batteries, The remote is sending a signal and the TV is receiving it, but the flash pattern from the remote isn't being recognised by the TV. Try replacing the batteries and post back.

Direct tv remote batteries fail constantly


I have same problem with Dish TV.........I was told the 'fix' was to press satellite button, on the remote, after turning off the telly. There is no permanent resolution - Problem occurs as remote is always communicating with the box when it's in TV mode (which happens after you power off the tv).

DISH Remote burning through batteries!!


most likely there is a button on the remote that is stuck on. try moving all the buttons to see if they "feel" stuck. if not then take the remote apart and clean the contact pad bottoms and the surface of the board with rubbing alchohol. good luck!

Bought a fairly used 2003 HDTV 4 months ago, Didnt come with remote but got a Universal I used that worked, my friend took the batteries out for a while for something else, we put the batteries back in...


Hard to say what the code is without knowing the model number of the remote and the brand of TV.

RCA's website has a remote code finder you can use.

Good luck!

Volume and mute buttons suddenly stopped working


Try changing the batteries. Most times the "tivo" buttons will work but the "tv" buttons will stop working when the batteries are low.

If you have done that, go back into settings and program the remote again for your tv, then give it a shot.
