    we have 3 projectors and the remote will only turn one on. The 3 cables come into one box at the sound board in back of the church and you can plug in the remote to each terminal and turn each projector on. 2 of them will not turn on. Only one will turn on, so I know its not the batteries or the remote. The problem has to be something else. sorry

    before, we used the same remote for all three and worked fine. Why, then, now will the same remote only turn on one projector? The cord is fine. This same remote as the other two will work wireless on the one but not the other 2. It's not the cord.

  • jthompson_28 Sep 02, 2010

    The remote and cords are fine. We have 3 projectors and all cords come to the sound booth into a terminal. We have three remotes all are like new - new batteries - cords are like new - we only use one remote to power up and shut down all three. However, only one projector will comply with remote. We have unplugged the wires on the two that will not comply. That means I have tried them wireless and still will not power on. Please give me some help. I have had no help thus far. These projectors are for use at our church.

    Thanks,

    John

It is possible that the remote's infra red L.E.D has failed which basically means that no signal will be transmitted from it. If batteries simply have not worked then it is more likely to be this than anything else.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

The cables that connect the remote to the units are frayed - check them, find the fault and fix it. If the fault is in the connector then you must replace the cables completely.

A common problem with remotes, is that the battery terminals can get slightly oxidized and need a good cleaning, with a qtip and isopropyl alcohol. You can check to see if the remote is working by aiming it at a digital camera or camcorder, and if it's good, it will be flashing a white light in the pictures or video.
Other than that, the sensor in the projector could be bad, in which case the unit will have to be checked out, and repaired.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

Remote stopped working for Sony, ceiling mounted, projector. Batteries changed.


Try calling 1-800-294-3889 or visit their website at: www.ElectronicAdventure.com to buy a new Sony projector remote.

Perhaps they'll even offer a suggestion or two that may help troubleshoot and fix your particular remote problem...I have no personal or financial interest in the aforementioned business- just trying to help and pass on good info.

I also attached a youtube video that offers a coupon code should you need to buy a new one.

Try removing batteries from the remote, pressing all buttons to unstick a stuck buttton, reinstalling batteries, and testing operation. Also, something may have gone wrong when you were setting the remote to control your TV. If no corrective action works, the remote may have failed prematurely.

Our Proxima DP5800 will not turn on with remote


First check the main switch located at the rear of the unit next to the power socket.Make sure it's turned on. Next, if the projector turns on with the power button on top of the unit, then the problem is with the remote. Replace batteries to make sure fresh ALKALINE batteries are installed correctly--the batteries must SAY alkaline on them. Ordinary carbon batteries WILL NOT WORK! Check inside the battery compartment for corrosion from a leaked battery. To actually test to see if a remote is working, you will need use of a camcorder with "night shot" or night vision capability. Turn on the camcorder and set it for night vision. From a distance of at least 8-10 feet, aim the remote at the camcorder and press a button...you will see the front of the remote light up as if it were a flashlight! That is the infrared coded light the remote produces to signal the projector.If you don't see any light, the remote is bad and will have to be replaced. If you see light, the receiver on the projector is not functioning correctly and will have to be repaired.
