Remote with TV stopped working for vol, AV, and mute. Only power button works. Used new Batt; no change. Used buttons on TV; none work there too. Is there something broken on TV?

If the buttons on the TV -and- the buttons on the remote don't work, then there's definitely something wonky with the TV.

The good news is that the power works and the picture looks good. That rules out a bunch of things. If you don't mind tinkering, replacing circuit boards on TVs is pretty straight-forward -- just take off the back, unscrew the offending board and replace it. You'll have to do a little research to narrow down to the right board to replace -- it might be this key controller board:

I have hisense er-31607A it will not work on tv unless i am pressing the white button next to power button simultaneously.

I suggest you to disassemble your remote to check led connection. If connection is broken; by pressing white button it might connect broken wires temporary.

Remote doesn't work even with new batteries

make sure the remote batteries are in the correct + and - way. It could also be that the remote is broken. If nothing comes on when you press the power button and the tv doesn't respond, then the remote is broken and you should buy another one.

The on / off button on the remote does not work. Will a new remote take care of the problem?

A new remote should. It could either be that the remote is broken or the receiver on the tv. Make sure that the tv works with other buttons such as volume and channel. If everything except the power button on the remote works, just get a new remote.

Check that the batteries are inserted properly and that they are in the right way, if either of the batteries is not in the position its ment to be, it won't work.

you would need a Special IR camera to see any light from the remote so that seems like a silly solution to me.

The remote is not working if you can't turn the device off or change channel. You might want to try another remote to confirm that your device actually receives the signal and works, if it does work with another remote, the remote you have is broken.

The power button on the tv is broken and i lost the remote

You can just try programming the remote with the Sharp codes they list in the instructions until you find the one that works. Follow the procedure for entering a code and try it. When you find the right one it will turn the set on when you hit the power button. The remote's instructions tell you to turn the set on to make finding the code easier (when the set shuts off you know you found the right one), but you can work without it.

Dvd code

Try preforming an automatic code search:

1) Make sure the device is on.
2) Hold down the DVD button and the power button simultaneously until the red light stays on solid.
3) Then press the power button - it will flash one time - keep pressing slowly, letting it flash until the device turns off.
4) As soon as the device turns off, press the stop button

If your the remote does not power the device off after cycling through all the codes - You will know this when the power button blinks and deluminates - then your "universal" remote will not work with the DVD player.

The best of luck to you!

Broken power button

unfortantly the power button on the front panel in most cases are part of the entire front part of the cabinet! In some cases you can take off the back and gently pull and slide out the chassis then you can see if it just slipped down below the switch or is it broken?? The front cabinet for this set is expensive and you probably would not want to replace it but you should be able still to use the remote control. If you dont have the remote a universal should work or you can most likely get an original replacement remote from 1-800-remotes or at Good Luck
