The original remote control that comes with the television stopped working. Originally I thought new batteries would be a solution, but that didnt work. I figure the remote was broken, so I purchased a brand new remote (not universal) and new remote still does not work. Is there something wrong with the TV, is it not recieving the signals from the remote? please help...thanks for your time.

Re: my remote control does not work
You could have a defective IR sensor in the tv set that sends the infared signal to the MIcroprocessor IC. These are something you cant just replace, as it needs to be trouble shot with a scope to see if theres a data signal comming out of the sensor and if there is it could be a bad solder connection somewhere between the sensor plug to the Main IC. Also could be the B+ that supplys voltage to the sensor. Unless you have had electronic repoair experience, You should have a pro assist you with this repair. Sorry I couldnt assist you more with this . Good Luck

If you mean the Coby RC-017 remote, it is not a universal remote that can be set to control any TV or other device. This remote will only work with the TV for which it was originally programmed. I believe it should work for a TF-TV1511, if both the remote transmitter and television IR sensor are working. Assuming you have the correct TV, try just pressing the power button.
I hope this helps.
(I suspect you found the directions for the Coby Universal Replacement Remote which controls several devices.)
Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
hi,have an rca remote control model number 244889,it no longer works, I've treid repalcing hte batteries and nothing will work,the light does not come on,not sure where to buy one like the original,as it will be the only one that will work the television.
To ensure that your remote is working correctly (infrared) take your cell phone, switch on the camera mode, now point the remote towards the camera lens and press the remote button, you shall see a red light come up on your cell phone screen, if this means your remote is fine the problem is with the receiver on the television.
I have the same problem with my unit. I use the original remote and my Tivo remote. Both stopped working at the same time. Ocassionally they will work for awhile then stop. They always both work or both don't. Therefore it must be the TV; likely the sensor or something connected to it. Sorry I don't have a solution. Guess I need to take it to the shop.
