    The model # is cuvsx045 and the remote use to work but now none of the buttons work and its seems to be not accepting power from the batteries.

  • rtcheatham Aug 16, 2008

    The model # is cuvsx045 and i can't seem to get any of the buttons to work even though there is batteries in it. Its a Pioneer

  • rtcheatham Aug 16, 2008

    I believe it is getting power from the batteries but their seems to be some function or reset button that needs to be implemented in order to free up the remote. But thanks I'd hate to take up peoples time with a broken remote.

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    Now I have taken out the batteries and cleaned the board but I still can't get any function from remote is it locked somehow?

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    I cleaned the battery posts but they still seem just a little brown could their be anyway around this to check for functionality.

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    I'm not sure what you mean fixya on the profile page just brings me back to the homepage and there is no troubleshooting guide or manual for my model.

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    I checked that process and no light comes out at all even though there is fresh batteries and there in right.

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    I guess I should just accept I have a broken remote but there is no warranty and the product is out of date so I can't return it . Just give up huh.

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    No universal power adapter but i'm still hoping i just locked it up somehow with an advanced button feature.

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    I looked into it but all they really do is clean the buttons no board work but it is an option for this poor old girl any other suggestions?

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    its not highlighted so all I get is a typing prompt. am i doing something wrong.

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    The crystal bulb doesn't seem to light up or go off at all.

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    I went to the remote doctor but he seems to stress cleaning the buttons I cleaned them to no avail.

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    Replacement seems an option but pioneer is out of stock ebay has one maybe i'll look into it but it just seems like there is an easy fix.

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    thanks for your help no fixing what aint fixable later

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    I just bought a navilight8 and now I can't seem to get the code to work my pioneer 511S receiver any thoughts?

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    Please read the last comment thread I junked the old remote and now need codes for a new navilight8 for Pionner 511s receiver.

  • rtcheatham Aug 17, 2008

    I found out I could get a replacement remote for the system but at 149 is was just too much now I am working on getting a navilight8 to function.

  • rtcheatham Aug 18, 2008

    I have a universal remote now I just need the codes for a Pioneer 511S

  • rtcheatham Aug 18, 2008

    I guess i am having a problem it seems like i getting info on past problems does anyone know any expanded codes list for audio to include pioneer to its lists of navilight8 codes.

  • rtcheatham Aug 18, 2008

    Thanks everybody but I trashed the remote and the universal just wasn't the answer for my tech needs so I'm going to save up for the original remote. No need to respond any further to my question. Again thanks.

  • rtcheatham Aug 19, 2008

    I have a new question imagine that!!! Please respond in kind if you know how to change topics and start a new thread or if you know if you only get to ask one question for your premium membership. but i need the owners manual/guide for a mitsubishi cs-35503 television.

  • rtcheatham Aug 19, 2008

    I guess the manual for mitsubishi television that are vintage doesn't exist.

  • rtcheatham Aug 19, 2008

    Thanks again but I'm going to sign off for now as I don't believe I have the tech experience to follow some of the more complex techniques. Thanks again for your help and as a suggestion you might add a few key capabilities to the sight such as comment delete from the original questioner and the ability to understand billing better. Again thanks for your time and patience.

Manually cleaning the lens
To locate the laser lens, look around the door or drawer of the DVD player and you will see a small circular disc, which is often called the turntable or disc platter. Right off the edge of the platter you should see a small clear lens. There are some manufacturers that have had problems with the lens, depending on the age of the unit. In these problem players, moving the unit to a different location, turning the unit upside down, or sometimes even without moving the unit, the lens can become detached from the laser assembly and floats around inside the unit. You can re-glue it back with a little crazy glue, BUT it must be perfectly centered, and without getting any glue on it. So, if you don’t see the plastic lens, but instead see the laser pick-up assembly, look around for the lens inside the unit and glue it back on.
To clean the lens you must use very little pressure. Take a cotton swab and barely moisten it with plain, non-scented, or oily type alcohol. In a swirling motion, very gently rub the lens until you’ve covered it entirely. Then repeat using the dry end.
If the cleaning didn’t help, don’t despair just yet. You can see if there’s a problem elsewhere in the unit by using a few simple tricks and tips.
First thing you want to see if the unit’s laser is in good working order. This method isn’t foolproof, but most of the time works admirably. When you insert a disc, see if you can look up underneath where the disc sits on the turntable. Observe the laser lens going up and down. If the lens is trying to focus, that’s good! After a few seconds of the lens trying to focus, the platter should start to spin. On almost every CD/DVD unit I've encountered, the unit won't spin unless the laser has properly focused on the surface of the disc. If the unit spins up and and then shuts down, you should check and make sure the laser pick-up assembly slider mechanism is working without any obstructions and that the small chrome rail that it slides on is slightly greased. Don’t go overboard with the grease though, as too much can cause all sorts of problems.
The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn’t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There’s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also.
If the disc starts to spin slowly and doesn’t come up to speed, the spindle motor that’s attached to the turntable platter is a common problem. There could also be a problem with the spindle motor driver controller IC or the power supply regulator that supplies voltage to the driver IC. If the disc starts to spin and then spins really fast, or stops and starts to spin backwards, your problem is the laser pick-up assembly or the servo control circuit. If you continue to have problems after cleaning and checking the other things listed above, you may have a problem with the player's alignment. Of course, one of the problems you'll face checking alignments on a DVD/CD player is that you’re going to need to use an oscilloscope on most of them. If you have the proper tools and equipment, the first thing to look at is the RF pattern of the unit while its playing. It should be a sharp and clear pattern. If it's dull and smeared, then the laser could be weak.
Also, in these units are very critical alignments called the focus/tracking gains and offsets. When these alignments are off, it can often cause intermittent troubles. As the unit ages and parts change value, so do these alignments, and will need to be checked. In my time as service technician repairing DVD/CD players, 65% of the laser pick-up assembles I have tested were good and only needed a small adjustment. Today's technology makes it unfeasible for a shop to hook up a DVD/CD player, and even some recorders, to their equipment and make these adjustments because of the cost involved.

Hope this may help;

Regards,
VOTIT

Get under a strong light and take a look at the remote carefully-are any little buttons stuck 1/3 or 1/2 way in? This happens sometimes and will completely stop the remote from working.

You have done everything you can do without having the schematic and troubleshooting it to find the exact problem.

With the model number of your receiver I could send you the service manual in PDF format and it has the schematic for the remote most of the time.

If you have an infrared detector you can see if it is sending out the light from the remote. You can not see the light coming out of the remote with your eyes, it is infrared and the human eye cannot see that range of light.

Sometimes the problem with remotes is in the receiver. They have a remote sensor that sometimes gets broken solder joints on the leads that connect to the display circuit board. It is a common problem with receivers that the remote does not work.

If your remote is not fixable or if the problem is not in the receiver, you may be able to get a replacement. I know you said they are no longer available, but sometimes there are still replacements that will work that are a different model number. In fact, many different Pioneer remotes will work on your receiver and a few will operate all the functions which means you will not lose any operations.

Please list your receivers model number and I will check to see if Pioneer has an adequate replacement for you. I work at an authorized Pioneer service center and have access to everything from Pioneer.

Let me know if you would like to continue to try and solve this problem, and knowing the model number of the receiver would help, that way I could find the schematic of the remote and also figure out if there is a replacement for it.

Good luck,

Dave

If it is not getting any power from the battery, inspect thoroughly contacts to be clean and batteries well fitted. You may need to dismantle it to (usually using a knife) to inspect inside terminal wires. If you are not familiar with electrical repairs, better take it to repair shop to figure out problem's cause.

    You at last can try to gently clean key pad bottom surface and corresponding board surface using a cloth wetted in volatile liquid cleaner and see if thereis response if keys are pressed. It must be carefully dismantled to do this work.

Dear,
the easiest way to check all remote buttons is here
just open the camera of ur mobile phone or any other digital display camera.
place your sensor (IRLED) of remote infront of the camera so that u can see the sensor from ur camera.
just press each button one by one and u will see light emitting from that sensor in your camera.
if all button emitt light then it is confirmed that remote is ok, the problem is in tv reciever (Photodiode or phototransistor).
but see the light intensity. is it glowing high or low.
if low then u have to change the battery.

regards,

    ok, its not functioning, it is confirmed what u have done with my method of checking it..

    so dear, what about crystal oscillator, a yellowish or whitish color two leg component, is there.

    ask for a technician to change it or check it with some tester. eg crystal tester...

    moreover, it is possible that u have locked it..

    because it locked condition, u cant see light emitting from it..

    remove the battery by the way and let it without battery for some minutes and then again check it.. hope it work

Double check batteries if they are aligned properly and positioned at their correct poles (+ and -). Also, you can open the casing of the remote and clean the keypads and keypad board using an alcohol. You can also use an eraser and thoroughly scrub the keypad board.

    have you checked on the contacts of the battery, there is a way you can open the remote up and you wll be able to see the battery contacts, check if it is rusted or corroded, and look for a balooned capacitor or a leaking one, if you do, than it will be best if you have this repaired or replaced.

  • marlon john madrid
    marlon john madrid Aug 16, 2008

    thats no problem, if in case you will have other issues, just let us know.

  • marlon john madrid
    marlon john madrid Aug 17, 2008

    you may try using a universal power adapter, set it to 2.5 - 2.9 volts, open the unit, find a way to link the positive and negative of the power adapter to the remote, a little risky if you have more that 3 volts.

  • marlon john madrid
    marlon john madrid Aug 17, 2008

    well if that is the case then you may have a swollen or leaking capacitor on the remote, have you seen one by the way? if so, you may either get that part replaced or a new remote will do too

Hi

I did read through your comments, I am only going to offer advice to your original question. I have a great deal of experience in these matters and am confident you can repair the device, solving all your problems.
Your remote will most probably be repairable. There are only a couple of things that normally stop a remote from working. Most have been mentioned already across the various posts. To summarise then in order of probability:

  1. faulty batteries or battery connections.... Cleaning the terminals with an finger nail emery board,then a spray with contact lube spray such as CRC 2-26
  2. moisture or contaminants on the switch contact PCB(black carbon etchings) forcing more than one button to be "jammed on" See this TIP I have written. Also has details on how to get the remote apart.
  3. dry/cracked solder joints to the infra-red LED. Resolder the connections to the PCB.
  4. Faulty or dry jointed ceramic resonator non-functional pioneer remote - 37e4657.jpgresolder first, they dry joint alot. If still no luck, replace the device with the exact same type. Contact me with the markings on it and I can provide you with information to source it.
  5. faulty IR LED.
  6. cracked PCB. Not repairable, you may be able to get a replacement PCB from Pioneer.
I have repaired hundreds of remotes over the years, and was a Key Service Agent for Pioneer for 12 years. If you are interested in repairing the remote, check out the TIP I wrote on how to get into the device, then go through the list above, then post back to me your findings. I am sure we can get to the bottom of it.

Just seems by your non acceptance of a plethora of advice given here, that there has been some confusion regarding what it was that you were expecting to get.

Pioneer receiver -no volume or volume display on screen. As if the function has disappeared. Knob still turns; just NO effect


Did the volume control get an impact? Could be internal damage to the digital control. Did it act up prior to this non-function, like volume went up on a down command or jump up or down when a slight turn was made? Thnose would reinforce a damaged volume control.

I bought a used Pioneer VSX 50 receiver and it did not come with the remote My old remote is not pairing with it. How do I get them to work together?


Hi Pamela,
if the old remote is not for the same make and is not one of those multi remotes that can now be bought then it will not work with the pioneer VSX or if it is from another Pioneer VSX then it may need to have the code re entered by Pioneer.

I would suggest to go to a shop that sels equipment of the same kind and ask for their advice and also whether they do multi controllers that would work, a shop such as Maplin (if you have a Maplin store where you live as they can be very helpful with such problems).

GOOD LUCK.

Pioneer VSX-D412 directv remote code


I also have the VSX D412 and DirectTV. My DirectTV remote controls the D412 fine, but I did have the same problem you're experiecing with a Sylvania flat screen that the remote wouldn't operate. I corrected my problem by turning the TV off, then back on using the TV's remote, then telling the DirectTV system that I didn't know the model number and let the system search for the code. Hope this helps.

I lost the remote to my Pioneer VSX D607S. I am trying to turn on the Sub-woofer, but the manual only shows how to do that using the remote. Is there a way to turn on the sub-woofer manually?


I dont think so as most of the sub functions are placed now on the remote control with no parallel modes on the customer panel.
The other way around is to trigger the circuit manually in the circuit but this needs care to allow the sub to switch on..

Does pioneer model vsx 403 come with a remote control? If so how can you relace it?


I have the same unit. It does come with a remote. The original remote is pretty much impossible to find. But also there are some companies that sell remotes for it. Google Pioneer VSX403 remote replacement. I have yet to get a remote :D
Good Luck.

No sound for the cable HDTV.


I woud examine the front panel indicators very carefully. Think about what your other inputs are that don't work. Besides all being from external components, are they non-stereo, or non analog, or ? What's common to them? The Multi-Channel function (button 5 alternate function on the Remote) would be a wild guess since on my Pioneer it overrides every other input. Not sure how the onbiard tuner is affected since I don't use it andI'm out of town for a few days or I'd try it.
