(1) try shining up the battery contacts - a little sandpaper/emery cloth/steel wool can clean up
even invisible oxide(s) on the surface of battery springs and contacts
(2) if that doesn't work, buy a universal remote as a replacement - the last 1 I bought was $8 at
a Dollar store - and it worked fine. But make sure that the remote supports your newer TV - alot
of older "Universal" remotes only support the obsolete analog sets along with just a (very) few
HDTV sets.
(3) as a last resort, pop the remote cover, and see if there's anything that got in there that you can
clean out to try to get the remote working. For every 10 remotes I've opened up, I've found
something fixable in about 10%. Usually they just die leaving behind no visible forensic evidence
of their COD (cause of death).

Remote quit working for litex ceiling fan


after changing the batteries make sure you didn't change the remote code. If you didn't there should be a reset button inside the battery compartment, it may just look like a small hole. Just use a toothpick and insert it into the hole and lightly depress the reset switch.Replace the battery cover and try using the remote again.

Skytech model no. sky-3001 changed batteries in remote and the transciever now i get nothing you can manually get fireplace to turn on using the transciever but when you switch it to remote and try to use...


You have to get the remote and transceiver to talk to each other. Remove all the batteries and wait a couple of minutes
before replaceing them. Place the transceiver in the REMOTE
position, press and hold down the LEARN button, and then
press the MODE button on the remote control. A change in the
beep tone will be heard and you have MARRIED the two devices. Should solve the problem.

sometimes if the batter is of expired stock then also it does not work.also try to clean the contacts in the sockets where u insert the battery.if still does not works then its quite possible that the internal circuit of the remote has gone fasulty.so the remote now needs replacement.

Vizio 50 inch plasma -- remote not working


You can also try to take out the batteries and push all of the buttons with the batteries out of the remote. Then put the batteries back in and push the power button on the remote. If this doesnt work press the two TV buttons at the same time and the remote should be fine.
