Question about Universal Remote Control Hampton Bay Universal Ceiling Fan/TV/DVD/Satellite Remote Control
Thanks for the reply to my question about the high-pitched noise!!!
Is there a way to "reset" the unit? The lights still come on when I use the on/off button. Just don't work on the auto settings. Or maybe it's the sensor? Sorry, but I'm just looking for an easy solution rather than buying a new one. It also seems the unit is hardwired to the house - no plug.
Sorry for the delays in getting back to you. This sort of gear is the "change out" type that is not generally considered repairable. You may need to get an electrician to look at it for you, and offer a quote to repair or replace the offending module. You are probably correct in thinking it is a sensor failure. Good idea to check that light can actually get to it. You could try to reset the device, this will involve powering it right down to provide a hard reset to the control circuitry. Pulling the fuse, or switching the mains down is the best way to do this. Then power up after about 10 mins, and see if then works correctly.
If it does not, then back to a replacement unfortunately. Although not a fix, hope this has helped you to make a decision about what to do with it. FixYa ratings are the only reward we get for providing free advice. Cheers
