Stupid question.... are the batteries good and installed in the remote correctly? also check if there is a "mode switch" that would let this remote control other devices..if there is, make sure its set to tv, or if there is a "tv" button, press it first, then see if the tv responds. also a quick way to test the remote is as follows: find the end of the remote that you point at the tv.. if you have a camera on your cellphone, activate it and aim it at the tv a button on the remote, look at the screen of your phone as you would if you were going to take the picture should see a little glowing light in the remote end that pulses. if you see that the remote is sending a signal.

The remote control does not workand the tv works manualy but the settings are not in order ie channels have not been set correctly,but they cannot be re set manualy

To reset and arrange channels in the order, you must have its remote control. Check whether the remote control emits infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Clean the battery contacts inside it batter compartment. If these contacts have any rust or dust accumulated, there will be no proper battery connection to remote's internal circuits, and won't work well. If all are found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside your TV. If you wish to get more details about how to check and replace a remote control, check this link.

ML-L3 Remote Control: I've tried to take a photo using the ml-l3, but no...

Set the camera's shooting mode to one of the two remote modes. Quick-response remote takes a picture as soon as you push the button on the remote. Delayed-response remote waits two seconds so you can hide the remote behind your back.
