My JVC car sterio with detachable face and remote stopped responding it wont change channels wont respond to remote either what can I do?


First, I'd make sure the contacts of the faceplate were VERY clean. A little rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip or even a pencil eraser rubbed gently along these contacts as well as the unit itself, could be the difference between working and not.

Give it a shot. Hope it solves your problem.

Tv remote doesnt work


Programming a universal remote does not change any settings for the TV. If the original remote is not working you may want to try changing the batteries. If this does not help, the remote itself may be bad.

Universal remote wont operate tv


Remote issues and answers:

If you are using a "universal" remote do not expect it to if it evenprograms to have all the functions you need or had with the"original" remote.

If you are searching for codes for a universal to program it: GOOGLE the modelnumber of the remote for "codes" or if you do not have the ownermanual GOOGLE the model number of the remote for "manual".

Some remotes have a search feature that allows you to try all codes on at atime.

Universal remotes are far from UNIVERSAL.

If you have a remote that does not work at all--have it tested first: a remotetester is used at many electronic repair centers and places like Radio Shack for example.

Point remote at the tester and press any button and a strip or light willflash----some digital cameras will also react on display screen to this.

If dead check the battery/s and the connections where they go and if only somebuttons have to be pressed hard the unit may have had something spilled on it:it can be taken apart and cleaned in a proper way to resolve this.

If it has been dropped it can also be taken apart to see if the infrared LED/sat its sending end have come loose from the circuit board inside the remote.

Lastly is the best argument for an original remote is on many sets even if itprograms it will just not have all the needed functions the original one had.

Many companies especially on units with DVD OR VCR built in change the codewith each model and or year as most of these are not actually made by thecompany whose name is on the unit.

Let me know if you have further questions and I will try to help.

My philips cineos remote control has stopped


The remote can itself be tested and if ruled out the problem can be the remote receiver in the set--a lot of digital cameras when remote pointed at them and button pressed will show a flash on the camera screen in dim light indication if it is working or not.

I have been trying to find remote codes for my parents new Motorola DTA100/2305/000 digital converter box so that I can connect everything for them on a universal remote. Any help would be greatly...


I'm also interested in remote codes for this equipment. My sense is that many (most?) remotes can't operate cable/dish/directv boxes because the boxes are proprietary, and the cable/satellite companies would rather you use their remotes as a "universal" rather than make the technology available in open source. But that's just a guess.

I'm actually looking for the specific remote for my unit, as some of the channels don't seem to be "set up". I have a Comcast remote (for another box, though it's "universal" type) that has some functionality, but I can't access any menus. The reduced channel options may be a result of limitations of Comcast, though, rather than the box.

Can change the sound with my remotes


I recently bought a GE universal remote control, SKU: 24950, that has a control code for the AOC A17W221 TV. I bought mine at Target. You can check online to see if your local store has one before you go there. It's also listed on the GE site under consumer electronics accessories with a price. Don't know if they sell it online, though.
