    My remote control developed the same problem today. Cannot get action from down channels or down volume. Also, no action on the power, 1,2,3 buttons. Please let me know of any solutions other than purchasing a replacement RC from Viewsonic. Universal controls do not work with their infrared signals.



    Thanks,

    mine stopped working today.....searched viewsonic's web site for a new one couldent find one.... you'd think they would offer replacement remotes.

    Same problems just happened to me...all of a sudden: vol. can only turn up, not down; mute button doesn't work; on/off button doesn't work.

    HELP!!!

    Thanks to Solution 3. My remote now works! I held the v chip down and power at the same time. Everything works well. It's unfortunate that when you call Viewsonic, they have no troubleshooting help and only suggest buying a new one.

    Viewsonic remote model RC00070P will not respond at all. I have attempted the battery rest reset and the hold down power and v-chip.... How long are we supposed to hold down the two buttons before anything happens?

Okay here's the fix.
Remove batteries. Re-install them wrong side in! Don't panic.
Reverse the direction of both the battery cells and install. Press "Power" button a couple of times and a few other buttons a few times. Then remove batteries and re-install the right side in.
Voila.

    amazing...after trying all other "fixes", the reversing of the battery worked!

  • drpatti Sep 03, 2011

    Yay! I have tried so many things, including trying about 40 different codes to program my DirecTV remote to my ViewSonic TV. The reversing of the batteries really does work! Thank you!

ViewSonic remote control RC00070P

I have had the same problem for several months. I have a few problems and a few fixes.

Problems: Volume won't go down, Mute button doesn't work, Power button doesn't work.

Fixes: Hold the volume up "+" button then press the down "-" button at the same time while releasing the up "+" button. Volume should decrease.

Power: Hold the "V-Chip" button down and press the "Power" button at the same time. Then release both.

After I did both of these things, my remote now works fine. I have no idea what the real problem is, but if all else fails, I'll just get off the couch.

I solved it...After weeks of suffering,(you know how it feels without the RC).
Solution:
On/Off switch
Press Power button & Info button the same time to toggle on/off
Volume(reduction):
Press Vol"-" & the "down"(inverted triangle button) the same time

Good Luck. Fellow Viewsonic owners!!!

Many times on old remotes, dirt accumulates on the inside or just some particles get into the inside of the remote and the buttons will not make contact. I have repaired this remote as well as others by cleaning. First the remote has to be opened, and this is the hard part. It is snap fit together and you have to work a screwdriver or other sharp object into the side between the halves. There are no screws used in this remote. I put a screwdriver into the only opening I could find - the LED at the end and accidentally pushed one of the LED (the clear bulb) leads off the circuit board that I then needed to resolder. After the remote is apart, just pop off the circuit board and clean the side of the board that makes contact with the buttons and then the backsides of all the buttons with rubbing alcohol (clean the button fronts if you like to look at clean buttons). Make sure both leads to the LED are soldered. On my remote, a small piece of dirt came out. Reverse the process to reassemble.

We installed a new adapter on a Comcast service for my 2nd TV in our bedroom.. Their remote is not in sync with our Viewsonic so I've to use the VS-remote. At first, power button was working, then it died out. Changed the batteries, the power still didn't work. I read the instructions here to install batteries in reverse and tried the buttons, of course it won't operate. I put them back again in proper sequence "voila great idea Amigo" . It worked and I can operate the power button again.

We tried it (removing the batteries) it didn't help.

One day, my report stopped working.  I couldn't turn on the tv, change channels, or change the volume.  I changed the batteries twice.  I then pulled out the batteries for 5 minutes and put them back in.  It worked!  Thanks for the solution.

    A solution to one mode of failure of a Viewsonic remote RC00070P

    The numeric pad for channel change failed. The above procedures did not work.

    Took the remote apart starting with a knife and then a flat blade screw driver.

    Cleaned the interior and then cleaned – what appeared to be a very small amount of black residue – from some of the contacts with Q-tip dipped in 99% isopropanol. This was worse on the contact corresponding to numeral 3 which was the first contact to fail. Then cleaned all the contacts thoroughly in the same way.

    The remote now works.

Pull the batteries out and let it sit for 5 min. Replace batteries. Worked for me

Bush lcd42f1080p100hz remote will not turn tv on


I had come home about a week ago and pushed the power button from my remote but my tv did not respond. So I just went to the front panel and pushed power but once the tv turned on, the volume was on full blast! I used the front panel volume decrease to get the volume down, but when I stopped pushing the button, the tv increased its volume to full blast again by itself! Naturally I just turned the tv off for a few moments. I tried the remote again, no response again, so I used the panel power button. The tv volume was still full blast when it turned on but after I decreased the volume it stayed this time. The picture is and has been perfectly fine and the tv was working fine. The next day the problem started all over and now once we turned it off from frustration of having to manually use the panel to change channels, it now will not turn on at all. I have changed batteries from my remote, reprogrammed my remote, pushed system reset several times, unplugged it for a while, bought a new surge charge, and even held the menu and device panel buttons for 10 sec and tried to turn the t.v. on again! What other options do I have or what may be the issue at hand and possible parts that may need to be replaced?? Thanks!!

For some reason, the remote just stopped working. I would press the buttons to try and get a certain channel or increase the volume and the light would blink but there was no response. My first thought...


SOUNDS LIKE A REMOTE ISSUE,IF ITS NEW I'D TAKE IT BACK,IF NOT I'D BUY A NEW ONE LIKE RCA OR ONE FOR ALL,THEY ARE BOTH RELIABLE REMOTES,STAY AWAY FROM RADIOSHACK AND SONY REMOTES"JUNK".

Sanyo remote will not chang to a lower channel


If the channel down works on the Tv, the problem is a worn or fluid damaged channel down button on your remote control. Also check the batteries life in the remote control and change if drained.

Remotes working sporatically


Your description suggests bad/dirty contacts inside the remotes and jammed volume buttons on one of them. Cleaning the rubber pads and the circuit boards on all of the remotes might solve the problem.
Use some ethyl or isopropyl alcohol and cottonwool to clean them.

By the way, here's a nice way to test a remote using your mobile phone's camera:

Turn the camera on, point the remote towards the camera lens so you can see it on the mobile's display.

Look at the display on your mobile phone and press buttons on your remote - you should see bluish/greenish flashes from your remote's emmiter each time you press a button on the remote (the camera on your mobile shows infrared light from the remote as visible light on the display - if it doesn't do so in the normal mode, try the night mode for the camera instead).

If you press a button and there are no flashes, that button probably has a bad/dirty contact.

if the remote is making flashes even when the buttons are released, this means that a button is jammed (you need to clean the rubber pads and the housing, especially the holes where the buttons come through as there's probably some dirt that keeps the button pressed in, which causes the volume to go up/down all by itself).

hope this helps...

Remote not working on TV


Try programming with Code Search:

1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.

2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.

3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.

4. Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.

Hope this helps :)

Remote will not work


if the light is staying on this means that a button is stuck down on your remote. It might be defective I would contact the company about warranty.
