Hi hanksfamily-

I have had success (about 1/2 the time) splitting the remote covers and cleaning the keypad and mating keypad contacts area with rubbing alcohol (or if it got a soda/syrup bath, Windex first and then alcohol) and then carefully reassembling. Also check for broken wires from the battery holder to the circuit board, and make sure there is no corrosion build up on the battery holder contacts.

If this doesn't work, the remote is probably toast and you need to go get you a universal replacement remote, and follow the directions to program it for your make and model.

Hope this helps, and good luck!

What to do when your remote quits working that cranks your truck


The batteries in your remote are probably dead. Put in new batteries. Just use the key until you get new batteries.

I have a Daewoo DWC-0520rle air conditioner and the remote does not work. Put in new batteries and still nothing happens. I live in Hawaii is there any place here that I can get a new remote?


Before you shop for a new remote, check the installation of the batteries. It's quite easy to make a mistake with the placement while replacing batteries.

Remove batteries and clean all battery terminals in the remote using rubbing alcohol, put fresh new batteries in hopes it will work, if no! have somebody look at it for board repair.

The remote just magically stopped working, even after new battery


Hi,
Have you tried pressing the 'input' button again this time to switch from video to tv? This happens in quite a few cases where 1 remote is used for many products. Please try and let me know.

Fan won't shut off w/remote.


Does the remote have a dedicated button for off/on lights, and then off/on fan?

I assume it used to work,,???

First, regardless, replace the batteries in the remote, even if they are new.

This will do two things, reset the remote and double check the remote is powerful enough to send a strong signal.

Do you have the original set up manual for the fan?

If this is not a new install, and it simply quit, get out the manual and perform the original setup.

Sometimes there are "modes" setup on the fan by how long the wall power switch is on or off, say on for 30 seconds puts it in test mode, or on/off in less than 30 seconds puts it in operational mode.

Not knowing what you have, I cannot say that you need either a new fan or new remote, I need more information about the entire situation.

write me at service @emrrepair.com

Samsung remote control


Remote control problem: your going to laugh at this but this was an easy fix, after my husband told me that there was something wrong with it, I tried to use the remote and he was right, it wasn't working. I changed the batteries that evening and sure enough it still wasn't working. The next day I had a closer look and thought that it wasn't right that a new t.v. remote wouldn't work, and lo and behold the problem? My housekeeper put a picture right in front of the electric eye of the t.v.! Guess what, it works quite fine again, thank-you for your time, and I am glad that it wasn't anything major. Peggy

REMOTER CONTROL QUIT WORKING


Well I have three suggestions for you. First off I wouldn't recommend including personal information including your full name and address on a place such as this. There are alot of crooks out there. Second, try unplugging the television and taking the batteries out of the remote control at the same time. Leave it like this for atleast 5 minutes and then plug it back in and replace the remote with new batteries. If that doesn't correct the problem, my next suggestion is to buy a new replacement ILO Remote Control, a good site is http://www.remotecontrolscenter.com but there are other sites out there that sell the original replacement remote control. Hopefully this helps solve your problem!
