Question about Coby DVD-224 Player

1 Answer

I bought this particular unit, years ago. And, though I don't watch dvds very often, the remote control stopped working this week. I thought that the reason was because of the batteries that were in the remote. Yet, I put those same batteries (2 AAA's) in another remote I have that uses that same type and the remote worked. I put brand new batteries in the Coby remote and it still doesn't turn on the dvd player or operate any other feature. I have never dropped the remote on the ground since I've had it. How do I get the remote working again, or how do I obtain a new one? And, for how much $$? Thanks.

Hi,

Apparently, the original remote is no longer available, but it always worth trawling eBay for used remotes. I've found many unavailable remotes for customers there. Remotes.com have a substitute remote available for $19.99 plus $7.95 shipping = £27.94 total.

I will try some other sources and will post back if I can find an original.

Regards,
BElectric

    You can also try this which will cure some "dead" remotes:


    Step 1 - Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.


    Step 2 - Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!


    Step 3 - Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
    New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.


    Step 4 - Try the remote.

    There are five (used) available on eBay - the cheapest is only $8.99 plus $7.99 shipping.

Hello
Just get into the Wharfedale site and upgrade it with latest software available, that suit to your DVD-M3. It will take some time, say about an Hour to complete the donload and installation. Don't stop as download stops, the softwre must be installed, and it will happen only after the full download. After sucessfull download, the set will propt you that has done sucessfully. Till then, never switch off the net connection, or do nothing at set end. If installation is not successful, the fault you describe here will occur. OK.

either the remote is bad or on the tv the circuit board at has the remote receiver on it is bad. If you bought it new and it has a warranty contact them for service. If not you could try programming a universal remote to see if it will work your set.

Keyless remote controls stop working all of the sudden.


you can re program the re motes yourself but it is a long program to type see if your local pepboys or autozone has a copy of autodata key programming and service indicators it lists your remotes and tells you how to reset the codes and programming in the remote. If you cant find it let me know a fax number and i can shoot you a copy out of my book

All remotes controlling my Onkyo TX-SR304 stopped working


try putting the remote an inch away from the IR receiver on the unit and see if it works then, if so then you definitely know its broken. This can and does happen. From what you have posted it sounds like no remote is working on the receiver, the ir receiver can break. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

DVD Regional Error


Im not familiar with yours, but some DVD players, particularly PC drives can change regions a set number of times (for pc its usually 5)

So the last change that it made, it locked there. That is why regionless discs will work, but others wont.

If you have many discs of different regions try a few (particularly of the last that worked) and see if there is a pattern. Also look in your DVDs menu to see if its mentions what region its set to.
