I have read some very bad reviews about that product, you may be better off returning it to the store and asking for a replacement, and maybe you could ask the guys at the store if you set it up correctly first.

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.

How can i tell if the remote contol is defective or whether it is the television set


Some electronic suppliers, maybe radio shack, sell little cards that light up when the remote or any infra-red light hits it. If you have another same brand remote or TV you can see if it works that set (maybe a family member or friend as the same brand of TV). Other then those choices the IR pulses can be seen with an oscilloscope.

No instruction manual for a Radio Shack remote


SEARCHING FOR YOUR CODE
If your device does not respond to the remote after
trying all codes listed for your brand, or if your
brand is not listed, try searching for your code. For
example, to search for a code for your TV:
1. Press TV once.
2. Press and hold P until the red LED blinks
twice, then release.
3. Enter 9 9 1. The LED blinks twice.
4. Aim the remote at the TV and press Power.
The remote sends IR codes from its library to
the selected device, starting with the most
popular code first.
5. If the TV responds, go to step 6. If the TV
does not respond, press CH+. The remote will
try the next code. Continue until the TV
responds.
NOTE: Press CH- to try the previous code.
6. To lock in the code, press P once. The LED
blinks twice.
7. To search for other device codes, repeat steps
1 to 6, substituting the appropriate device
key.

Remote control quit working


Batteries can be bad or installed improperly. If you know someone with a digital camera that has an lcd display, point the remote at the camera while someone is looking at the camera's image in real time. Infrared will appear as white light to the camera's CCD "eye". Cool trick.
Remember, IR is line of sight. Make sure nothing is blocking the path between the remote and the TV. Also IR remotes and fluorescent lighting doesn't mix.

Wireless remote control extender


Possibly your new equipment doesn't use IR (infared) as the media for the remote. I have used the pyramid and different versions of it for DirecTV/Dish and most everything else for years with no major problems. occasionally a unit will fail, but that happens. If the red light blinks on the "transmitter" (no antenna) it should indicate that it is receiving IR from the remote. The "receiver" (antenna) has to be oriented correctly in front of the unit to be controlled. I put the receiver no closer than 5' to the unit. The signal coming out is a cone shape and it's easier to aim the further away you are. As a test, you could try using the remote to control a stereo or something else, even a fan. If the remote has a led or a dark red plastic cap on the front end, it should be an IR unit.

I need a code for the TV


Check out the Remotes in Radio shack. 2 models support durabrand. I purchased the "3 in 1 easy to use" universal remote for $5.99 and used the codes for the Durabrand and it worked perfectly.

Remote Control Extender from Radio Shack


Hi,

To determine if your PC will simply not connect or if really your wireless AP/Router, please download NetStumbler, install and run. The software will determine if there is an AP within your immediate area (including yours/high signal strength), if there is & it is yours, then it is configuration problem, it none or some but weak (low signal/not yours) then it is a hardware problem and would most probably require replacement. Most of the time, the cost/time of repair would make the purchase of a new one more reasonable. If your Wireless Ap/Router was detected by NetStumbler, then perhaps what you need is to re-configure your system/set-up again.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional; information.

Good luck and kind regards.
