So it's not really a remote problem if the receiver won't even turn on from the panel. Stop spinning your wheels with the remote.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to TURN ON or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

GT3-R -can


This is a dual frequency transmitter. (315/390) You need to select one button to program the TYPE 1 frequency of 390 MHz. Here's how:

Backwards compatable programming instructions for GT3-R dual-band remote: This is a 3 button remote, which can be used to operate up to 3 garage doors using IntelliCode radio controls. This remote is defaulted to operate the new IntelliCode 2 Genie garage door openers, but you can also program individual buttons to operate other IntelliCode 1 (pre 2011) models of Genie garage door openers made from 1998 to present. To change a button to operate a pre 2011 IntelliCode opener, the default IntelliCode 2 setting must be changed to IntelliCode 1. An LED light on the remote displays which mode the remote button is in: Red = IntelliCode 1 / Green = IntelliCode 2 To set one of the 3 buttons to be IntelliCode 1 (red), follow the instructions below:
  1. Select a button on the remote that has not been programmed.
  2. Press and hold that button for 10 seconds. Both Red and Green LEDs come on and stay on.
  3. Press the same button twice to toggle IntelliCode selection from IntelliCode 2 to IntelliCode 1.
  4. Press the same button again to confirm toggle. the LED should be Red. The IntelliCode selection for this button is set to IntelliCode 1.
You are now ready to program the remote to your garage door. Follow accompanying instructions for "Programming to IntelliCode 1 Genie garage door opener," or see below instructions: Programming Instructions: Gently press the Receiver Learn Code button on the power head receiver of your Genie garage door opener (motor head on ceiling in garage). This small, black, unmarked button is located behind the light lens at the motor head and is nearest the floppy 6 inch antenna wire that protrudes from the motor head. When pressed, a radio signal indicator light will start blinking red for 30 seconds. After pressing the Learn Code Button, press your transmitter button twice for your system to grab the frequency and code it in. (Keep the transmitter you're tuning at least 2 feet away from the power head while tuning.) Press the transmitter button once more to test the system and start your door moving.

HP TSGH-IR02 Remote Control how to install


This document pertains to HP Media Center computers with Windows XP, Media Center Edition.Use this document when the remote control does not work correctly with the Media Center software.Troubleshooting the remote controlUse the following items to troubleshoot when the remote control does not respond or when the remote control does not work properly. For example, when a key is pressed the selection moves all the way to the top or bottom of a list, or moves a selection many different places instead of the item you were trying to select.Before attempting these steps, make sure that PC has been updated with all of the latest Windows updates. Many updates for Media Center, like Update Rollup 1 for eHome Infrared Receiver, can be downloaded easily through the Windows Update software Tool.
Make sure that the batteries for the remote control are installed correctly and charged.Make sure that the front of the remote sensor is unobstructed, within a 45-degree range, and is less than 26 feet (8 meters) away. Disconnect all devices that use a USB connection except to the receiver, keyboard, and mouse. Restart the PC, and then try the remote again.If a pressed button repeats itself (sticks), unplug the IR receiver from its USB connection, wait one minute, and plug in the IR receiver. If the pressed buttons continue to repeat, alter the lighting conditions in the room or move the location of the IR receiver. Other remotes and HP Media Center PCs within range can also cause this issue.Try pressing the Enter key on the remote after changing a channel.If the remote control works when using the media center software, but does not work when changing the television channels, re-configure the Media Center software settings for the cable set-top box or satellite receiver
Point the remote control towards the IR receiver and press a button. A faint red light should appear on the IR receiver. If the light appears, then the problem is probably in the software that is using the remote control (most likely the configuration of the Media Center software). Close the software, restart the computer, and then re-open the software to solve this issue.

Troubleshooting the IR receiverThe IR receiver is the small device that receives the signals sent by the remote control. Use the following steps to test and reset the IR receiver.Disconnect the IR receiver from its USB port on the computer, maximize the Media Center window if it is open, and then reconnect the IR receiver. Test again.Point the remote control towards the IR receiver and press a button. A faint red light should appear on the IR receiver. If the light appears, then the problem is probably in the software that is using the IR receiver (most likely the Media Center software). Close the software, restart the computer, and then re-open the software to solve this issue.Click Start , right-click My Computer , and then select Properties .Click the Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.Click the plus sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers.If the eHome Infrared Receiver is listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers, Windows is properly detecting the IR receiver. If eHome Infrared Receiver is not in the list, or there is an exclamation mark or a question mark on the device, perform the following until eHome Infrared Receiver appears correct in Device manager:Unplug the end of the USB cable on the IR receiver from the computer and plug it into the same USB port.Plug the end of the USB cable on the IR receiver into the front USB port on the computer.Disconnect all other USB devices, leave the IR receiver plugged in, and then restart the computer. Plug in other USB devices after the IR receiver shows up in device manager.Figure 1: IR receiver listing in Device Manager

You didn't specify if you are trying to program the remote to your TV or receiver. Is it a replacement remote or did it just quit working? I have provided instructions on how to program to your TV or receiver.

Address to receiver:
Remote: All Other Remotes
  1. Go to System Info screen (depending on receiver - press System Info button on receiver panel or pull smart card out till System Info screen appears on TV screen).
  2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
  4. Press the pound (#) button.
  5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful, the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.
Remote: Basic Remote (Television Only)
  1. Turn the Television On.
  2. Press and hold the TV Power button for three seconds until the LED flashes.
  3. Press and release the TV Power button.
  4. Press and release the Up or Down Arrow on the remote until the television turns off.
  5. After the television turns off, press and release the OK button.
  6. Test functionality with the TV.

Hi. my original remote for my onkyo tx ds575 all of a sudden is not working anymore. the red light on the remore still lights up when i press a button but the receiver is not picking it up. hopefully you...


The red light on the remote just means the battery is good and the remote is responding when you press a button. It doesn't mean the control is actually sending out a signal. Many retail stores have a tester that will tell you if the remote is transmitting. Another possibility is that the remote sensor in the receiver has gone bad, and that the remote is fine. A universal remote (One-4-All URC6131, for example) that can work home theater receivers can be used to test the receiver. It may not work all the functions, but if it turns the receiver on and off you'll know the remote is at fault and not the receiver. Then you'll be able to replace the remote or have the receiver serviced as needed.

If the VCR button lights up when you press the Power button, you are not in the correct mode to operate the TV. If the remote is programmed correctly, when you are in SAT mode, you can press the large RED button to turn your receiver off/on. The RED TV button will turn your TV off/on. I have provided links to program your remote to your TV again. I have also provided codes for your Sanyo TV.

My tv remote will not allow me to access the satellite


walk_alan,

Are you still having problems with your DISH Network remote? Which light on the remote lights up when you press the select button? If any button besides the SAT button, the remote is not in SAT MODE. Pressing and releasing the SAT button will put the remote in SAT MODE.

If the remote is in SAT MODE and doesn't operate the receive, then the remote may need to be readdressed to the receiver or the remote may need to be replaced. Do you have fresh batteries in the remote? If so, I have provided steps on readdressing the remote to the receiver.

Remote: All Other Remotes
  1. Go to System Info screen(depending on the receiver, you can press the "System Info" button, or pull the smart card out from the receiver till the "System Info" screen appears on the TV)
  2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
  4. Press the pound (#) button
  5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.
I hope this helps.
