MVD2050 remote control

I recently purchased a MVD2050 and all of a sudden the remote is not working. I replaced the battery, however, that was not the problem. Any thoughts?

    the MVD2050 BLK remote stopped working. I changed the battery. Still doesn't work. Please help?

    The remote works, or at least sends a signal, and another remote that is trained to mimic this one also is not capable of controlling the dvd player. I think the player itself is the problem.

    battery operated remote does not work even after replacing battery. what is the problem?

  • YoMartin Apr 04, 2009

    My remote went out. I replaced the battery. No joy. I even had the battery thoroughly tested by my electronics friend. Battery good. I did the video camera trick and there is light coming out of the remote. Then I tried it on the player and it works sometimes. When it fails, I think I'll have to remove power from the unit for 30 secs. If that doesn't work, time to get a new player. Dang! and I bought that TV Guardian thing too.

If you point the remote at a video camera and press any button on the remote while the camera is recording you should see the emitter flashing on playback. This will confirm that the remote has indeed failed or working. I did this and found the remote working... Now on to the player.

Memorex blu ray dvd play says no card

I was able to fix the 'NoCard" error on the Memorex 2520. On the remote control, find the "popup menu" button. This is located on the right hand side of the remote, above the pause and below right of the enter button. This button reveals a "change drive" menu. Highlight 'BD', press enter and you will be done. I am assuming that someone mistakenly changed the drive previously to "SD Card".

Remote control has stopped working

If you have replaced the batteries with KNOWN GOOD ones, observed the proper polarity when re-installing the batteries AND made sure the remote is in DVD "mode" (if it is a multi-remote) when trying to use it, the remote is bad. Replace the remote.

Samsung DVD r135 no reaction using remote control but recorder reacts on remote control from Samsung TV, batteries check. Disconnect the recorder from the power over night no change, still own remote...

Try this. Remove the batteries from the recorder's remote control and hold down the POWER button on it for 30 seconds. Then replace the batteries with fresh ones. It should work fine after that.
If not, the remote control may be defective.

My remote does not work

Reset remote. If universal remote, put on dvd mode.
  • If your remote has a Reset button, take out the batteries and press the Reset button for 2 or 3 seconds. Re-inset the batteries and try using the remote again.
  • Note: Many remotes have a small hole marked Reset instead of a raised Reset button. To activate the Reset function, you need to push a thin, rigid wire (for example, a straightened paper clip) into the hole to "press" the Reset button. Also, the Reset button or Reset hole may be located under a sliding cover on the lower section of the remote.
  • Remove the batteries and hold down the POWER button for 1 minute. Insert fresh batteries and try using the remote control again.
  • If this does not solve your problem, remove the batteries again and press and release each button on the remote control once, then repeat. Re-insert the batteries and try operating your remote again.

Otherwise you need a new remote. If under warranty call manufacture to see about getting one free of charge. They can also help you purchase a new one if not under warranty.

Remote control will not work?

Hi Quad, recently I also got same recorder and faced the same problem with the remote controller. today i tried to solve this. i opened it up. it turned out the battery connections are not proper. The battery connection are in the form of a spring coil which touches the outerside of the battery which is not touching properly. I bent and slight lift it with a plier and it started working. The other connection is touching front side of the battery(on backside you see label cr2025 printed) and this is alright. I hope it works for you too. with best regards
