I cant switch to video input and my remote wont

Dear FixYa customer,

You can verify the output of the remote by pointing it at your Camera phone. If you see a bright spot like a flash light then you know the IR beam is transmitting.

You will need the remote control "Input" button in order to get the "L"ine input on the VCR. What source are you trying to record from? There may be an alternative if the other device has RF output.

The original remote is no longer available, however, here is a link to a replacement that has the "Input " button.

Thank you

Looking for remote control code to operate Philips 65PFL4864 TV from Sony BDP-S370's remote (RMT-B107A).

If you're trying to control your Philips 65PFL4864 TV with the remote control of your Sony BDP-S370 Blu-ray player (model RMT-B107A), you will need to find the remote control code that corresponds to your TV. The codes for different brands and models of TVs can vary depending on the remote control, but you can try using one of the following codes:
  • Code 020
  • Code 021
  • Code 022
  • Code 023
  • Code 024
  • Code 025
  • Code 026
  • Code 027
To use the codes, you need to follow these steps:
  1. Turn on your TV and Blu-ray player
  2. Press and hold the "TV" button on the remote control of your Blu-ray player.
  3. While holding the "TV" button, enter one of the codes listed above.
  4. Release the "TV" button and check if the TV responds to the commands from the remote control.
  5. If the TV does not respond, try the next code in the list.
You should be able to find the instructions on how to program your remote control in the manual of your Blu-ray player. If you don't have the manual, you can download it from the Sony website or contact the manufacturer for assistance. Keep in mind that these codes are not guaranteed to work, and it's possible that your remote control may not be able to control your TV. In this case, you may need to consider purchasing a universal remote control that is compatible with your TV and Blu-ray player.

Sony xbr-55x950G main board and usb software update

I'm sorry to hear that you are having issues with your Sony Bravia TV. It sounds like you have already tried a number of troubleshooting steps, including replacing the boards and performing a software update. If you have no picture on the TV and the Sony logo is flashing on the screen before going off, it could be an issue with the software on the TV. Here are a few additional troubleshooting steps you can try:
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the TV, then unplug the TV from the wall outlet. Leave it unplugged for at least 60 seconds, then plug it back in and try turning it on again.
  2. Check the HDMI connections on the back of the TV to make sure they are secure.
  3. If you are using an HDMI cable to connect the TV to a device (such as a cable box or DVD player), try using a different HDMI cable.
  4. If you are using a cable box or satellite receiver, try resetting it by unplugging it from the power outlet for 60 seconds and then plugging it back in.
  5. If the TV is still not turning on or the picture is not coming back, it could be an issue with the software on the TV. In this case, you may need to try a factory reset. To perform a factory reset, follow these steps:
  • Press the Home button on the remote.
  • Select Settings.
  • Select Product Support.
  • Select Customer Support.
  • Select Factory Reset.
  • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the factory reset.
Keep in mind that a factory reset will delete all of the data and settings on the TV, so you will need to set it up again as if it were a new TV. I hope these steps help, and please don't hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
