Do you have fresh batteries in the remote? You did not provide your TV brand so I can't provide you the codes for your specific TV. Below I have provided instructions on how to perform a power scan. If this doesn't work, you may need a new remote.
Remote: Basic Remote (Television Only)
Turn the Television On.
Press and hold the clear TV button for three seconds until the LED flashes.
Press and release the redTV Power button.
Press and release the Up or Down Arrow on the remote until the television
After the television turns off, press and release the # button.
Test functionality with the TV.
Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the
volume and mute the television.
the "TV" button and then press the "Power" button on the remote. If the
TV turns on, your remote was just switched off of TV mode.
your remote to your TV. Universal remote controls can be accidentally
unprogrammed by sitting on the wrong combination of buttons or having
the batteries disconnect from the inner connections.
the TV from the electrical outlet for a few minutes and plug it back
in. This will reset the TV in case a power surge caused the TV to
the batteries with new ones. Do not use old batteries from a different
device in your house because if the batteries do not work, you won't be
able to determine anything because those batteries may not have enough
juice to power the remote. Keep in mind that different devices have
different needs, so the batteries may have had enough power for
something else to work but not enough for your remote.
the batteries to see if they are inserted in the right direction. It's
possible that someone dropped the remote, the batteries fell out and
then were inserted incorrectly.
Press the "Power" button on the TV set to determine that the TV is not dead. A dead TV will not turn on from a remote.
Program the remote to another TV. If the second TV works from the remote, the problem is with your TV's remote signal receiver
If the VCR button lights up when you press the Power button, you are not in the correct mode to operate the TV. If the remote is programmed correctly, when you are in SAT mode, you can press the large RED button to turn your receiver off/on. The RED TV button will turn your TV off/on. I have provided links to program your remote to your TV again. I have also provided codes for your Sanyo TV.
Instructions to program your remote to your TV (begin with step 6):
First try changing the batteries. Next make sure when you press function on the remote control the red light on the remote displays under tv
Next try a remote reset:
have to unplug the television after turning it off. Take the batteries
out of the remote control. Point the remote toward the remote sensor
(bottom right hand corner of the television set). Press the power
button on the remote control and hold it down for 30 full seconds. Next
press and release every button on the remote control. Next plug the tv
back in and power it on from the power button on the television itself.
Replace the batteries. Adjust the volume using the remote control. If
that works the problem is solved. If it doesn't work you may need a software update, a new remote control, or repair to the sensor on your television.
To see if your remote control is working look at it through the viewscreen of a digital camera.
The digital camera must be turned on and ready to take a picture. Next
press a channel button on the remote control. Do you see a bluish white
light? If so the remote control is ok.
Ok I just dealt with the Sharp customer support for this problem.
1) You need to unplug the TV for 1 full minute and remove the batteries from your remote aswell (this will reset the system) 2) Hold the power button on the remote for 30 seconds with the batteries still out of the remote and the TV still unplugged 3) After the 30 seconds replace batteries then press every button on the remote beginning with the power button in order from left to right and top to bottom (same way you read) 4) Then plug your tv back in and try the remote again.... and the remote and TV should be back in sync.
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.
