First, let's check to see if the remote is giving out signals. With a phone camera or similar device look at the end of the remote, where the signal comes out. Press a bunch of buttons on the remote while looking at the signal output with your camera. If it's working, you should see flashes ever time a button is pressed. This is because cameras, like on most phones or digital cameras, can see infared light. If you don't see any flashes, that means there is no power. It might be bad batteries or a bad remote. This should help you narrow down the problem. Hope it helps!

I've had my Sony Bravia 52EX701 for over 3 years. We have two remote controls. The main one we use is through our older Bose Home Theater System to control the TV, etc. The Bravia remote is also activ


Maybe there has been a disconnect with the TV recognizing the code of the remotes? Or, maybe you pressed a button on the remote that will not allow it to change the channels. I've done this in the past where I accidentally pressed, say the TV or DVD button, and when I turned the TV on and tried to tune in channels, the TV would not respond. Pressing the cable button (but that is on my remote) returned the remote to its ability to change the channels. You will just have to do trial n' error.

Why is my remote control not working despite changing the batteries.


Not sure if this will help but, I recently put an antenna on the roof of my house. I don't watch TV much but wanted to enjoy some TV, but my remote locked up and the side buttons on the TV wouldn't work either. I tried changing the battery, but no luck. There's a broadcast station 64.2 that is locking up TV's & remotes. Here's the fix that a TV repair co. gave me which did break the lock of the station 64.2.

1) unplug antenna (not roof but connection from TV to wall)
2) unplug and plug back in TV
3) find a way via remote or side buttons to scan channels
4) Go to Menu
5) EZ Setup
6) Channel Set Up-Scan Channels
7) Channel Memory
8) Digital Set Up
9) Turn Skip On for 64.2 (Delete this Channel)
10) Turn off TB
11) Hook Antenna back

You may have to play with the order to acheive the end result or figure out a way to delete 64.2, but during the process you will at least unlock from being stuck on 64.2.

Good Luck if this was the same issue!

Remote will not change channels


If you are using the original remote, it has failed.

My television set is stuck on one channel....the audio changes with the channel but the picture stays blurred on one channel...whats wrong with it?


Lots of possibilities. If you are using the remote, try also using buttons on the TV to change channels. If TV buttons work, the remote is broken or perhaps try changing batteries and cleaning battery contacts on the remote. If neither work, lots of other things to try. You may need to set preselect channels, so your TV thinks there is only one channel out there until you do. If you are on a cable box you just need channel 3 and change channels on the cable box. I can't tell what you mean by "audio changes with the channel" ... if you mean that when you try to advance channels, it increases volume and moving down in channels lowers volume that would be strange -- if you are using a programable remote it might not be set correctly (try another programming code). The "blurred" picture is probably symptomatic of having the set on the wrong channel, and if you could set channel it might clear up ... I'd start with getting channels to change. If you need more help, give the brand and model of TV, say if you are using a remote (original or programable), and what the 'audio changes' comment means in more detail. Probably worst case is that your tuner circuit is fried, but don't assume that without more diagnostic.

Are you using the supplied remote with the TV.
Try Resetting the Remote.

First, remove the batteries from the remote.
Then, wipe the contact surface of the batteries.
Then, press each button on the Remote twice repeatedly.
Then, reinsert the batteries and check whether the issue is resolved.

Remote stuck--can't change channel or turn off TV


Pull out the power plug of your TV and don't use it for few minutes. Remove batteries from your remote and keep it without batteries for few minutes. After about 15 minutes your TV and remove both will work fine.
