Face does not come down and remote won't work

Suddenly, the face stopped coming down after pressing the top-left button (when face is closed). Even though, when I started up my car, it would automatically come down... just not come down by pressing the button. The first time it happened, I used the open/close button on the remote and it came down. The second time it happened, my remote did not work. In fact, none of the buttons on the remote worked, so I was stuck listening to the same station and the same volume. I ended up removing the unit to see if any connections had come loose. After making sure all connections were secure, I hooked it back up. Now, the unit will not even power on, much less flip down the face. All connections are secure and it is hooked up properly... I have no idea what could be going wrong or how to fix it, PLEASE HELP ASAP!!!

EXTREMELY common problem for these units. The faceplate ribbon cable has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

Bought Walker tv and remote stopped working even though the red light comes on once i press any button... please help

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. The red light on the remote you see is not the infrared light, but an indication only, that there power comes to its circuit, as you press a button. The infrared LED is placed at the front end of the remote control. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, try this link. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up previous posts, either by type in the Brand name to your set in its search box, or view it in Mosaic / Timeslide / Flipcard option. Select view option by the drop-down view box, at the top left or the display window.

Viewsonic n3251w will no longer display Closed Captions

You can reset your viewsonic remote control by removing the batteries, and holding the power button down for 10 seconds. Just 10 minutes ago I repaired my remote, which was doing absolutely nothing, not even turning the set off and on, Called Viewsonic, they told me this, and it worked ! Yay !

Remote doesn't work

Possibly some of the dry wall dust could have gotten into the buttons on your remote. You can check the remote by holding it close to an AM radio receiver and listening for popping sounds as each button on the remote is pushed. You may have to move the remote around to find a position where the radio will pick up the signals. (usually close to the antenna ) also you may have to tune you radio up and down the dial. With this method you can test each button on your remote! Hope this will help you! Stargazer
