Remote doesn't work

I recently got a second hand SONY Trinitron TV. I bought a universal remote control for it, which worked fine for a couple of months. Suddenly, one day the remote stopped working. I don't know if it had something to do with the drywall dust I was kicking up at the time or if my grandmother pressed something wrong on the remote, but it suddenly just stopped working. I tried reprogramming it, and the funny thing is that after following the necessary steps (pressing "code search", "TV" and entering the specific RCA code), the remote will work for a few seconds and then stop working again. Any ideas?"

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

My remote was working fine until i moved. I have Direct Tv and the remote from Direct Tv works on guide. I bought a new remote from Magnavox but it doesn't work my tv. what should I try? '

You have to program the remote control to synchronize with TV. If you wish to get moredetails; codes, three digits, four digits or five digit ones, check this link. Pull up older posts there. Setup code list and setup instructions to some popular model remote controls are given. Select the 'Timeslide' option from the drop-down list by the 'Sidebar' at the display window. It will make search easy.

Sony trinitron number is kv20fv12 what is the number for a remote controller for this tv

The original remote control number to this set is {RM - Y198}. If you buy its original one, contact the nearest authorized service center for Sony. The universal remote control codes for Sony Brand Tvs are: 0128 0013 0002 0071 0380
If you wish to buy a universal remote control, check whether there is these codes with its code list. The code list will be attached with every universal remote control pack. Make sure there are these codes with it.
In my opinion, it will be best to buy its original one. Original is Original, and Universal is Universal!!

Need code for my vizio tv i bought a ihip remote control for my tv

The instructions on letting the Hipi remote to seach for the code that came with my remote are not correct. I used the instructions from HOWTO.COM and printed below. There are two changes from the printed instructions. The first is to push the <TV> button after the <Code Search> button. The second is that the <Enter> button saved the code not the <MUTE> button.

Instructions
1
Turn on the Vizio TV.
2
Aim the Jumbo Universal Remote at the Vizio TV and hold down the "Code Search" button on the remove for roughly 3 to 5 seconds. The LED lights on the Jumbo Universal Remote will come on.
3
Press the "TV" button at the top of the Jumbo Universal Remote.
4
Start pressing the "ON/OFF" button repeatedly until the Vizio TV turns off. (This took only a few tries for my Vizio TV)
5
Press "Enter" on the remote immediately after the Vizio TV turns off to save the code.
6
Test the Jumbo Universal Remote by trying to control the Vizio TV with the remote. If the control doesn't work with the remote, repeat the entire process.

Sony Trinitron Tv

Dear sammy5,
Stop by any TV repair shop in your area, and ask to borrow a used original Sony remote, they may require a small deposit; access the menu, perform your set up, then return it. Or you could buy a universal Sony remote from Walmart that should work just fine, for about. $7.00.

Hope this helps.

Sony Trinitron 30" no remote seems to work

If you want to test the voltage you can do so at connector CN002 on the main board. You should have 5 volts DC at pin 4 and at pin 5 marked SIRCS (sony infared remote control system)should be 5 volts as well but, will drop to about 2.5 volts when any button is pressed on the remote. If it doesn't change then you should change the HR board wich houses the IR rec. and associated components.
