Question about Jensen JR300 Remote Control
1) Try resetting the code search / programming
2) Try quickly tapping the OFF command key (opposed to holding it down for 2+ seconds)
3) Be sure there are fresh batteries in remote
The remote could possibly transmit a lower frequency setting for the 'OFF' state than it does for the 'ON' state. See if there's a setting for ON/OFF commands on the remotes 'Settings Menu'. You can also check the owners manua for your universal remote,l under 'POWER options ON/OFF. Make sure nothings blocking the IR sensor on the TV. Also bare in mind it may not be the remote but rather the TV's IR sensor.
If still no results then send it back and obtain the original remote for the TV, which is always the best option.

Hello henrylee. In a perfect world infrared remote controls have a range of about 10 meters. That said, the batteries must be fresh and new, their must be a clear path to insure direct line of sight for the signal to travel straight to the infrared receiver eye on the front of the tv.
For instance, if the tv is in a cabinet and the cabinet door is partially blocking the line of sight you will have a problem.
Do this. First of all locate the infrared receiver on the front of your television set. Clean it with a wee bit of window cleaner and a tissue in case it is dusty. Next Sit where you normally do and insure that there is nothing in the way of the traveling signal such as the cabinet door, a knickknack, a plant leaf, etc.
IF you have fresh, new batteries in your remote it should work fine. If it still doesn't respond as it should, you may have to replace the infrared receiver unit in the television, but that is a rare event. Joe
4 thumbs up please. ty.

Since the control is recognized at a distance for one function but NOT the other, we can believe that the sensors are capable of the longer range. This is a guess, but something is de-sensitizing the receiver at a pulse rate near the code used for the shutoff. Look for ANY infared source that MIGHT be hitting the sensor, especially those that might have a pulse code being emitted. Such things MIGHT be a wireless headphone or speaker system. Try turning off ALL electronics and any non-incandescent lamps or dimmers in the room and retest the situation. The new LED lamps for instance might generate strong pulses that are confuse the decoder in your receiver.
