Blinking light is a indicator that the batteries are bad.

You should be able to use the 'code search' feature on your remote. Depending on what remote you have the instructions are here:
In general,
1. Press and hold set until the red light blinks twice, then release set. 2. Enter in 9 - 9 - 3 (The red light will blink twice after the 3). 3. Press and release the digit 1 (The red light will blink 4 times after the 1).

Contollers will not work. Lighting will only blink at the bottom of the controllers. Bateries have been replaced.

you need to reset \ resync the remote with the consol. turn off the power to the consol, unpllug it, plug back in, turn on, press the button inside the front flap to resync and press the red sync button on the remote under the battery cover.

Purchased a one for all universal remote urc-7711 (australia). The instructions are clear that when completing a direct code set up, i am to hold the MAGIC button until the red light blinks once then...

It blinks 6 times because the batteries in it are an incorrect type for this remote. Change them for new AA/LR6 and it will start working normal again (it will blink twice per the instructions, rather than 6 times on every button pressed).

Hi, My philips 42'' plasma won't turn ON. I went to turn it on and the ''on'' button flashes red 7 times 4 seconds apart

I just had the same problem. I downloaded a service manual and give this a try . Turn on your TV and with the remote do the following Key in the code “123654” via the standard RC transmitter. This get you into a customer service mode and you can check your error codes.
After I got out this mode my TV worked. I think the TV was stuck in protection mode for some reason and by entering the service menu's it reset it.
I then entered the SAM Mode
How to Activate SAM
Via a standard RC transmitter: key in the code “062596”
directly followed by the “INFO” button. After activating SAM
with this method a service warning will appear on the screen,
you can continue by pressing the red button on the RC.
It will give you more info.
The TV worked fine after I exited these menu's.
I also did a software update as per the user manual and the TV seems to be working fine again.

Hope this helps

Hi I carn't set up my total contol remote for my tv can you help

Hi fishbones675,

Not a problem - here's how to do it:

1) Turn on your TV.
2) On your Total Control Remote, press and release the TV button.
3) Press and *hold* the SET button (the red light will blink once - keep holding it - it will then blink twice - release the button).
4) Enter the four digit code for your TV (the red light will hen blink twice).
5) Press POWER - the TV should turn off. This will mean that the remote has successfully been programmed.

If you don't know the code for your TV, refer to the list of codes in the user manual, available at the following web address:

If your TV brand is not on the list, or if the codes for your brand don't work (which I've only seen happen once), then try the CODE SEARCH feature:

1) Press TV.
2) Press and hold SET (as above)
3) Press 9-9-1.
4) Alternate between pressing the TV and POWER buttons. When your TV turns off, that means the remote has found a code that will operate your TV.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Status light blinking red

If it is a lamp error try this:
When the lamp exceeds 2100 hoursof service, the projector cannot turn on and the manu is not displayed. Do the following:
For VT670/VT470 Press the help button on the remote control for a minimum of ten seconds.

For VT570/VT47 Press and hold the power and the exit buttons on the remote control simultaneously for a minimum of ten seconds. When the lamp time clock is reset to zero, the lamp indicator goes out. Hope this helps! :]
