You can run a wire from the fuse box to the remote wire at the amp. Find a ignition switched power lead out of the fuse box inside the car that way the ingnition switch will turn the amp on and off .

My dish remote does not work all the time on Guide ..etc... after i turn tv and dishbox off it works sometimes?please help


It sounds like a interference issue. Sometimes a TV (Usually LCD) or other equipment can generate enough heat to interfere with the IR sensor.

If function returns when you go right up next to the receiver then there is most likely something causing that interference. If that's the case remove possibly sources or turn equipment off and power on 1 by 1 until you isolate the problem.

Another solution if you have a spare remote, or order one, is change it from IR to UHF and bypass the possible. This can be done with remote model's that say IR/UHF Pro on the back at the top.

If you can provide more information about your setup, or if those steps didn't work let me know here or at and I would be happy to check it out further with you.

Remote won't work. Tried new batteries, reprogramming, etc. Universal Remote doesn't work either. LG #42PC5DC

To confirmed if the remote control is working fine, aim the remote control sensor(IR emitter) directly to your cellphone camera. While pressing any button key on the remote control, you can see the flash of an infrared emitted by the remote control if it is working fine.

If you've confirmed that the remote control emitted an infrared but still the tv won't communicate with it, this is an indication of faulty IR sensor board of the TV. Check if there's an obstruction from the IR receiver in front. Keep away all of it, clean the plastic window of the IR receiver with soft clean cloth.
If the symptoms still persist, you have to replace the IR sensor board. Check the actual part no. of the board before ordering.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

My tv control doesn't work and i put new battery's in and that didn't work either

There's a quick test you can do to test the functionality of the remote to make sure it isn't the TV's IR sensor that's broken. To perform the test all you need is the remote and a digital camera (cell phone cam works too). Take the remote and look at the IR "eye" through the camera's screen. Don't actually take a picture simply use the camera as you would a magnifying glass. While looking at the IR eye press a few buttons on the remote. If the remote is working you should see light coming out of the remote. Our eyes cant see the IR light but the camera can. If the remote doesn't light up then the remote is at fault. You can replace your remote on many websites for somewhere in the 20 - 50 dollar range.

Here for example, you need to input your TV model number and it will tell you what remote you need with pictures. Then, once you are sure that is the remote you want, you can order right from the same website.

Hope that helps!

There is a quick test you can do to figure out if the IR transmitter on the remote is broken or if the TV's IR sensor is at fault. Using a digital camera (cell phone works too) set up a picture of your remote's IR transmitter. DO NOT TAKE A PICTURE. Simply look at the sensor through the camera's screen. Now while looking at the screen press a few buttons on the remote. If you (through the camera's screen) see a red light coming from the remote, then the remote is fine. As far as getting it repaired, you can look for a TV repair shop in your local yellow pages. Call a few and ask for a quote.

Jello, you meam that IR isn't emitting red light? If the IR isn't working then it has a bad IR luminator, broken wire, bad switch. Now the on/off switch get it power from battery to IR, it just one simple circuit. Also don't look at the IR light if it's on. Also don't point or look at bright lights with this NV devices, it will destroy the image intensifier tube. stewbison

Does not power up. Put new battery in but nothing happens.

Hello, There could be a number things that go wrong with Famous Trails NV. Little history here.These binoculars, monoculars and some scopes are manufactured in Russia. There could be a malfunctioning switch or switch's, broken wire, faulty controller. Between what can really go wrong with it would be broken wire or image intensifier tube. I think on this model you'll need to remove the front lens, it screw on or off. Once you give it off, there will be ring with three screw.

Remove the screws. Now gently remove the but first remove the eye viewing lens. Be careful here there will be some white wire attached to the switches, IR light, LED will all have wires and the two wire from the battery compartment. Mark the wires and there location on the printed circuit board...all wire location on their boards. Label it very well. Check for broken wires and check the switches. If not broken wires or bad switch then problem would be the green painted tube with a thick black collar around it. To check that you will need 15KV switch DC/AC at 20Khz and about 12ua of current. stewbison

I am having trouble with my pvs 7 night vision. I can see clearly for about 60 yards. The IR illuminator is not working. What do I need to do?

OK, is the IR luminator working with a red glow. Don't look at it. Some these IR luminator have a adjustable lens that one can screw out or screw it in. If the IR isn't igniting then the LED could be bad , broken wire, or bad switch. stewbison

Missing IR diode on RM-U800 remote

They should be all generic so find an old remote and scounce that for parts. Make sure you you get the polarity right or do it again with another IR LED as you might blow it is you place it wrong way.
