Question about RCA L32HD31 32 in. LCD HDTV

Suddenly my remote no longer communicated with the tv. I replaced the batteries in the remote. Still no communication. I can operate the tv with it's buttons, but the remote has no effect. Is there any way to tell if it is the remote that is broken, or the tv?

Why doesn't remote control communicate with Fischer heat pump mini split system


It sounds like the batteries leaked and oxidized the terminals. If you cannot get them clean enough then I would suggest getting a new reomote from the manafacturer.

My remote control does not operate my GVA TV, the batteries are good, the pair (remote/TV) just do not respond at all, no matter what buttons are pushed.


Hello,

If new batteries did not fix the problem, then it means the problem is either from the remote or the TV.

Remote: Check the remote battery terminal, see if its not rust. Also, disassemble the remote, can check the connection between the terminal and the remote board, see if there is no disconnection of any kind.

If after checking and all seems well, then it means the remote is defective. To confirm, borrow a remote, test it with the TV. If it works, then it means you need to replace your remote. But if the remote you borrowed does not work, then it means the problem is from the TV and not the remote.

TV: There is a sensor in the TV that communicates with the remote. If this sensor is defective, the remote won't communicate with the TV.

The TV sensor might have loosed contact from inside of the TV or it maybe defective and need to be replaced.

So do the above troubleshooting and let me know if the problem is from the TV or remote. If problem is from the remote, you need to do a replacement. But if otherwise, let me knows as well.

Good luck.

The tv remote for the vizio Vo47L is no longer working. trying to reprogram it so that it works. The battery is fine and it lights up when i push buttons but it does not control the tv anymore?


Try holding down the <P>, <Q> and <SPACE> buttons down together for 5 seconds.

This often restores the communication link between the remote and the tv.

Remote does not communicate with TV. Battery connector is loose.


Hi,if the remote was working perfectly before now with the TV,it means the problem is from the battery of the remote control,you have to replace the battery and ensure they are well inserted in the right positions. However,if you have done this and the problem remains,you have to unscrew the cover behind the remote and check the connection between the sensor and the panel,if the connection is broken you have to solder the sensor back to the panel.
Thanks and take care

RCA remote not communicating with the TV


Stupid question; have you replaced the batteries?

You can probably get a downloaded user guide from here:

www.safemanuals.com

www.retrevo.com

If those fail, try the RCA (Thompson) website.

Not receiving commands from the remote. (Panasonic Panasonic CT-34WX54 HDTV)


Sometimes remotes have a switch to select tv,vcr,or cable,amke sure the remote is in the tv mode,other than that rare but remote receiver go bad and they have to be replaced,but before you call for assistance make sure the remote is communicating with the TV.It could be still good with other devices and not with the set.
