Gather up all the remote controls that you think are not working and a digital camera.Turn the digital camera on, all you need to do is look at is the digital screen while performing the process.No need for turning off all the lights (but may be helpful in seeing the IR signal).
Point the remote towards the lens of the camera as you would when pointing the remote towards the TV.Press and hold any button on the remote while viewing the screen on the camera. Note: some buttons may not transmit signals via default. Best button to try first is the power button.While holding the button on the remote and viewing the digital camera screen if you see a blueish light, that means the infrared signal is working properly, there is a problem with the direct connection (if its a universal remote, try setting it up, if its not, you're probably not pointing it correctly).

Sharp tv Model:TL-M5200. switches on but the picture is distorted with striking lines and not stable.


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Either the remote or the receptor on the device is not functioning.
Use an Intraed Sensor to see if the remote is sending a signal.
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.
If the remote is not sending a signal and you have replaced the batteries, you will need to repair or replace the remote, depending on cost.

Tv volumn


Are you using another remote for the guide? Like the cable box remote? If that is the case then the remote could be sending a signal to the cable box that is the same as the signal used to adjust the volume on the television.

Testing remote control:
The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera's Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera's screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the TV IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals.

2) If the remote checked out OK, then look at the back of the TV for the "REMOTE INPUT", use a mini-phone plug and insert the plug into the remote input jack in and out a couple times to clean the switch contacts that select between the front IR receiver of the TV or the rear panel IR input jacks.

The remote on my vizio tv will not operate the tv. The remote has new batteries and the remote lights up when the buttons are pushed. It will work occasionally but not very often. What can I do.


Well, we need to test the remote to see if it is actually sending out the IR signals to the TV IR receiver.

Dish network remote to run RCA DVD player


I had rca remote that did not recieve ir signals but rf signals instead. Check online with rca or in owners manual for what type of signal factory remote sends. The dvd player I had was 5 dvd and that was the case. Dish might have an option like direct tv where you can program rf signals as well. Call dish network support or look online

1 Answer

I just can't get it to work, new batteries and all.


First check if the remote control is sending an infrared signal. If the LED is flashing, this does not mean the Remote control is sending the IR signal. There is a separet Infrared LEd that sends the signal. To check the IR, point the remote control in a video camera or any camera with real-time monitor (phone cam, webcam, etc.) and press any button. You will see a white flash coming from the Remote control. thjis works best if the camera is black&white, for color camera, the IR is still visible but quite faint. Another way of checking the IR (if you do not have a camera) is to press the RM in front of another device with remote control and while doing so, press the correct remote control . If that other does not function or functions erratically, then the remote control in question is emitting an IR signal. If there is no IR coming out, the solder conection of the IR LED might be the problem. It is rare that the IR LED will be damage because the remote control is only 3 volts. If the remote control does emit an IR signal, then the TV remote reciever is defective. I had this problem with a CD player that I have fixed. The IR reciever looks like an LED (dark colored) with three pins (V+, signal, ground). Cost less than $3
