Hi there is a long thread in http://www.avsforum.com about other folks having problems with remote not working on all kinds of Kenwood VR receivers. go there and search on Kenwood receiver remote . I had the intermittent problem with my VR405 also, remote worked 1 day a week only sometimes after a smack to receiver sometimes not. Problem is the solder joints at the back of the infrared on the circuit board - they have a slight crack around them, as the unit heats up they occasionally start working. I resoldered them according to instructions in avsforum thread and it now works great

I'm not sure of the exact fix, but when these components were assembled a few of the connections involving the remote sensor were not saudered. An easy fix if you know where to look.

Buttons stopped working

If there is a tv button on the remote, try pressing that..

Chances are its damaged and you might need to order a new one from Hitachi or possibly use a universal.. With remotes there really isnt much you can do when they stop functioning.

Casablanca fan stopped working suddenly, both fan & light

You must 'reset' the remote. I've had it happen quite a few times.
1. Turn off power to fan. Then back on.
2. Using remote cycle the following fan buttons from high to med to low, then from low to med to high again. That 'should' fix the problem.

Remote control doesn't work

The only thing that comes to mind is somehow the remote became unprogrammed. This happens with some factory remotes, if you reset the code for the remote it may start working again.

There are other times (both of these Ive had experience with) when the remote will just stop working due to a defect.

Post back for any further help, thank you for stopping by Fixya!

My Sharp Remote Control Is Suddenly Stop Working

Ok I just dealt with the Sharp customer support for this problem.

1) You need to unplug the TV for 1 full minute and remove the batteries from your remote aswell (this will reset the system)
2) Hold the power button on the remote for 30 seconds with the batteries still out of the remote and the TV still unplugged
3) After the 30 seconds replace batteries then press every button on the remote beginning with the power button in order from left to right and top to bottom (same way you read)
4) Then plug your tv back in and try the remote again.... and the remote and TV should be back in sync.

Hay

You can take out the batteries for 20 seconds, then put them back in. Generally if that doesnt work, try to replace the batteries. If that still doesnt work you might have to reset your remote in order to get it functioning again. Let me know if you have done those steps or were you are at after you do this.
