Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

The Motorola UHF / IR remote control buttons do not react, the ones I use most often. The power button still works, some buttons only work when pressing hard, some not at all. It is for a Shaw Star Choice satellite receiver Took it apart and there is goo in the pc board. How do they work ? Will cleaning work ? or does the PC board need new goo ? Or is it gone ? I am an EE with a 1951 degree and still solder and measure, and am careful. Walter Linde in Canada

It sounds like the circuit board itself has failing components, I doubt it's the "goo" at all actually. When you say goo is it actually a slime of some sort inside, or is it the rubber backing of the buttons that usually is there and depresses on the contact points below? Either way you are going to be better served just replacing the remote with a new unit, they never work quite right after they start having issues like this, you will practically need to replace the entire inner board, and by the time you do that it will cost more than just a new remote....

Let me know if you want me to help you locate a new remote, or if you want further help with the current situation...

Let me know and I can help!

Need Dish remote code (6.4 IR/UHF) for Vizio VSB200 Soundbar...


There are no codes available for a 6.4 remote on a Vizio Soundbar. Below are the steps to Power Scan the remote control. This will search all codes 1 by 1 until it finds a code that works, or exhausts all available codes.


Power Scan:

1.) With the Soundbar on, press and hold the AUX mode button (about six seconds) on top of the remote until all mode button backlights come on, then release.

2.) Press 2 then press STAR (*)

3.) Press the Up arrow button once a second while pointing the remote at the Soundbar. If the code for the Soundbar comes up, it will power off.

4.) Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times. To verify the code works try several different functions for that equipment.

How to program remote to dish? 4.4 IR/UHF PRO


Your question is not clear as to whether you want to program the remote to your TV or the DISH receiver. Here are steps for both if this has not been resolved already!


DISH RECEIVER::
1. Go to the room where the receiver is located. With the remote for THAT room press menu twice. (This will be the remote with the Green 1 on the bottom.)
2. Press and release the SAT button on the top left of the remote
3. Press and release the black and red record button 3 times
4. Look that the number next to remote address (secondary Remote address) has changed.
5. If not, start again.


TV::
1. Hold down the Clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up
2. Press the red TV POWER button
3. Press and release the up arrow on the remote about once a second until the tv turns off.
4. When it turns off, press the # (Pound) button
5. Try powering the tv on/off, and try the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over at step 1 again.

Remote buttons light up, nothing happens , wont run the reciever


Phil with DISH Network here and happy to help! Here are some steps thatshould fix your remote:

Step 1:
Check if the issue is with a specific button. If its just one button that isnot working we need to have the remote replaced.

Step 2:
We want to make sure that the correct remote is being used for the TV in this room. Use remotekey (Green "1" or Blue "2 UHF") to confirm itis being used in the correct room. TV1 is located in the same room as your DISHreceiver.

Step 3:
If UHF, check that your UHF remote antenna is securely connected to the "RemoteAntenna" port on the back of your receiver and that the antenna isupright.

Step 4:
If issue is with the TV2 remote, bring your TV2 remote with you to TV1. Access "SystemInfo" at TV1, using the remote that is NOT functioning, pressand release the "SAT" button then press and release the RECORDbutton on remote control.

Step 5:
If the batteries in the remote have not been replaced in the past 60 days,replace the batteries. If the remote doesn't light up after replacingbatteries, have the remote replaced.

Step 6:
Unplug the receiver for 10 seconds then repeat step 4.

Step 7:
If the remote is still not working the issue may be caused by IR interference.Find interference source (back lighting or power save mode on LCD TV's,fluorescent lighting in room, or direct sunlight). Getting rid of theinterference should fix it.
If you are using a UHF remote, find interference source (component(s)(VCR, DVD Player, etc.) near DISH receiver), adjust UHF antenna, or distance UHF antenna from receiver using coax cable.

After completing all these steps if you're remote is not working give us a callfor additional troubleshooting at 1-800-333-DISH (3474).

Thanks for being a value DISH Network customer!

My dish network remote isnt working with my LG tv


Not all TVs are supported by our remotes. You can do a power scan to see if you can find one that works or you can get the newest remote type that supports a large array of TVs. The new rmote is a model 21 which will work in IR and UHF mode. To perform a power scan do the following: Press and hold the upper left TV button on the remote until all lights on top light up and release.Now press the small red TV button and release - the upper tv button should be lit solid. Now press the arrow up key slowly until set turns off. Once it does presss the arrow down key once and then the arrow up key and the TV should power on. Now press the pound sign and the rrecord button. Now press the upper SAT button and release . You should be able to control the set now. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

My IR remote no longer works in another room


Dawn,
If you want a remote that works via IR to control the satellite receiver you will need a IR only. The IR/UHF type only transmits signals to the receiver by UHF and the IR portion only operates the peripherals in the room such as the TV and VCR. There are some remotes that come with a kit that can change the remote to work as an IR only. I believe you have a TV2 remote and want it to work further away from the receiver particularly the room the TV is in. If this is the case you may have have to change the remote address of the new remote to match that of the old. You can do this by taking the number one remote and pressing menu-menu. Now take the new remote and press and hold the SAT button in the upper left of the remote until all lights across the top light up. Now key in the two digit number on the tv screen at remote address for tv2. Then press the pound sign and the SAT button will flash three times then press the record button and the TV2 icon should flash. Now you can cancell out of the screen on tv one and try the remote at the TV2 location. I believe this will fix your issue if not let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
