You should first make sure if remote is really working or not or it is tv that isnt 'seeing' remote

if you point the remote at a video camera and look at the picture from the video camera you should see the light coming out of remote when a button is pushed

if you see the light but tv is not responding the sensor on tv has the issue. make sure sensor is not blocked by anything in front of the tv ( you can find the sensor on tv - if not easily seen - by using a flashlight and looking behind any red colored plastic or glass) once you find this sensor besides making sure it is not being blocked you should try cleaning the area where it is. Also try to make sure that the sensor is not being hit by any direct light especially sunlight or a light that resembles sunlight as this will affect performance.

if you dont see light try gently prying open remote control and clean the battery contacts with either rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser. also try to gently bend the battery contacts in a way that they would hold tighter on the battery

the last thing to try when remote is opened up is to clean the back of the piece of rubber that are the buttons and also clean the contacts on the circuit board that the buttons would make contact with if they were pushed

if none of this works to fix remote you might need to get replacement

hope this helps

write back if you have more questions or if i could help you more

good luck!

Tv remote wont work even though new batteries are put in.cannot change channels or volume or even turn the tv off or on


Try opening up the unit and cleaning the contacts and bottom of the buttons with a q-tip and a bit of rubbing alcohol. Over time the oil from your fingers gets inside and creates a film between the contacts and the button so the circuit will not complete and your buttons stop working.

If the TV still works fine and it's just the remote malfunctioning, try removing the batteries from the original remote and leave them out for 10-15 minutes. Put the batteries back in and try the remote.

No remote for Swisstec T.V.


Hi rhami,

The only brand of universal remote I know of that has a code for Swisstec brand TVs is the Integra - the code is 0880.

The other option is to order a replacement remote for your model TV. http://www.amazon.co.uk carries remotes for a wide variety of Swisstec TVs (note that www.amazon.com does *not* offer these since Swisstec is British).

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
