In my experience, the related remote is better than universal remote, as it's not designed for particular unit, but for multi.

Anyhow, take universal remote, power on your a/c.In front of your a/c, press setting and then < or > continuously. In your remote the number will go up or down as 999.........998.997......... or 1101...102........103...104. like that. Stop, when you get response by beep sounds.That is code for your a/c to operate. Helpful?

    I have the sae problem - again with a Starway AC. The Universal remote went up to 99, but none of the numbers got a response. Could it be incompatible?

I have a different problem subscription but perhaps it could be the same source...In my apartment are two Starway airconditions. I have two remote controls. Both are working at the one in the living room. Before also both were working at the one in the bedroom.Now the bedroom-aircondition suddenly doesn't switches on or even do a beep on any of these remote controls... I've had this problem once before (some weeks ago) and after a while luckily it was able to be switched on again - like magic. Now it's not working since a day. The red power LED was on and the green 'running' LED was flashing. I already switched off the power for a while (with the fuse for the whole room). The red power led was off during this time. It comes up again the moment I switched the power back on, but that's it. Nothing more is working. It cannot be related to the remotes, because both are working normally at the living room.A small clue - the fan outside is a little bended and scratches a very little at the metal case. So the resistance for the motor could be a little higher to turn the fan. But this is since I'm in this apartment (3month) and seemed to be like this a long time ago, too...Does somebody has any ideas to check? I need it urgently back in service, because I use it for heating and it's getting really cold now in the bedroom :-/
I don't know if this could also be the problem from the person that started this thread. Perhaps your old remote control was working (like mine) and just the aircondition doesn't work with any remote any more. So your universal remote could hit the right numbers but nothing will happen ...
Anybody else had a problem like this?

Hi.... My Air conditioning remote control AR-DL1 doesn't seem to be working.It's been working on and off for a while,but now ....Nothing at all ( I changed the batteries also ) .Since I don't know if it's...

Remove batteries and keep for 5 minutes. And also remove DC wire plugged in display sensor in your indoor unit. Now, plug again DC wire in same position and also put batteries in remote. Power on and try now. In many units, this type of resetting would help. If still problem, check remote thr' camera mobile by pressing any button in remote. If ultra light flashes, remote is o.k.You have to repair/replace PCB only. If no ultra light, replace remote.Thanks.

LG remote problem


Most probably if the remote works on the other units then the receiver on your problem unit is busted. You have to call an authorized service repair shopr to replace the board.

I hope it helps.

Kelvinator Split System Air Conditioner not turning on.

On some remotes there is a reset button which is pressed by using the nib of a pen. Or if this does not work you should look under the cover for a manual button, most units have one, and see if the aircon responds. I suspect your remote sensor is faulty, but try the previous suggestions first.

A/c remote working but system wont respond

Heya Allhart?

How did you check the remote? Did you check the remote via viewing it on a LCD screen? If the remote is working than you need a new receiver PCB for your air con and would contact Sanyo to see if it is under warranty or for them to get someone out to veiw.

Hope this helps
