Question about Tomtom GO 520/720 Remote Control

Open Question

When I point my remote control at the sat nav display and press a button, the blue signal light at the top of the remote control flashes on and off and won't connect to the system, rendering it useless. I've tried changing the batteries but it's made no difference. Do I need to reset the system?

Hello
Check your TomTom's remote control for its infrared emission. You can check it with a cellphone camera. The blue ligh flashes indicates that the circuit inside it is working, but it does not give you about the infrared emission form it. It is only an indication for its battery power and oscillation takes place inside it. The infrared LED in front of the remote control emits infrared radiation with different frequencies according to each function press. human eye cannot detect these rays, but an electronic camera can. Set your cellphone to camera option, place the remotes' front side towards its lens, at about one feet away or so, press each button on the remote control. if there is any infrared rays comes out of it, the phone camera will sense it and you can see its image at its screen. If there is no image at all, make sure that the remote control is not emitting infrared rays; and is faulty. If there is image on the camera screen and still your TomTom main unit does not respond to it, the infrared sensor inside it is faulty. You can't make it right. The unit has to be disassembled to repalce it.
If this is the condition, the set is new, as you say; must have guarantee. Replace the unit as far as possible I advice. Never make it open, as opening the unit void the guarantee. OK.

Ensure that the batteries are inserted the right way, if they are not the remote will not get power.

Make sure to hit the STB button and then press the POWER button.

Looking for dish network codes for the Philips SRU3003 remote...


You can power scan for the code.
Turn ON the electronic device you want to program the remote to control.
Press the Mode button( sat,tv,dvd,aux) on the remote until the appropriate mode light is flashing.

Press the Power button. The mode light will stop flashing and stay lit.
Press the Up or Down arrow button to set the remote to the next code. The Down arrow button scans backward and the Up arrow button scans forward.
When the correct code is reached, the device (whether a TV, VCR, or other) will turn off.

Press the pound key button to store the code in the remote control memory. If the code is valid for your remote, the mode light will blink 3 times.
Turn the device back ON by pressing the Power button.
Press sat mode key once you power back on the tv to be able to operate the receiver box.
Try some other functions to make sure you have the correct code. Occasionally the Power button may work when others do not.
If the other buttons work you are finished.

.
If the other buttons do not work, repeat the previous steps. The scan will resume from the last code stored.
The mode light will flash rapidly when the scan has returned to the starting point and all codes have been tested for that mode. The remote control may not control some device models.

We will need to set the remote address again. Using the front panel buttons on the receiver press the menu button twice. This will put you at the system info screen. You will see the remote addresses for tv 1 and 2. They will probably both be set to 1 if the receiver reset. Press and hold the SAT button on the TV1 remote until all lights across the top light up and release. Now key in a two digit number between 1 and 16 (for 1-9 precede that numeric with a zero) now press the pound key at the bottom right of the remote numeric keypad. The SAT button will flash three times and press the record button until the remote address on the screen displays the one you entered. The receiver should now be able to be controlled by the remote. If you have further issues let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
