Question about Sony LF-X1 12.1" LocationFree TV Television
I was trying to find the previous solutions that were unsatisfactory so that I would not repeat any of the solutions you have previously been given. I did not see any of them. I only saw that you felt the information was useless and that you should not have to pay for this. All remote control troubleshooting is pretty much the same. Before completing any of it make sure you have pressed the cbl/sat button on the remote control (I'm sure you already have but I just want to cover everything) and change the batteries (once again I'm sure you already have). You might need a replacement remote control.
The following is standard remote control troubleshooting: Replace batteries in the remote control, gently with a microfiber cleaning cloth, wipe the IR sensor located on the DVR.
Adjust backlight on your television - if low, turn maximum level, if maximum level turn low
Find out what type of environmental interferences there may be, such as alarm system, other items in the room that function with remotes, (remote controlled fans, remote controlled lights, DVD/DVR/Cable Box/Satellite Box, Stereo), fluorescent lighting (includes the energy saving CFL bulbs), sunlight, smart house (sensor controlled lights and heat) or power lines by the house. Move sources (DVD/DVR/Cable Box/Satellite Box, Stereo) to another area of the room, not in the same IR path
Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulbs are known to emit certain amounts of infra red radiation that can potentially interfere with electronic devices that use IR remote controls. Using CFL bulbs in sockets connected to a dimmer can result in occasional "pulsing" of light, even when the light switch is turned off
a. Using normal Incandescent bulbs
b. Move the DVR away from CFL light sources
c. Try different CFL bulb brands. Professional Installers have recommended "Bright Effects" CFL bulbs available at Lowes for low amount of interference.
IR repeaters and some PC controlled IR transmitters can interfere, and should not be placed in or directed at the IR path
Unplug and replug DVR (recycle power) for at least 30 seconds.
