SOURCE: 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.

Do not use the factory default position in either fan. Double check the dip switches, and make sure they are the same for each individual receiver and remote.Different codes for each. Dip switches are the oppsite direction in the remote for some reason?

The receiver more than likely received a software update or reset itself and reset the codes to the receiver and tv. We will need to set the remote address again and run a power scan to control the tv. Using the front panel buttons on the receiver press the menu button twice. This will put you at the system info screen. You will see the remote addresses for tv 1 and 2. They will probably both be set to 1 if the receiver reset. Press and hold the SAT button on the TV1 remote until all lights across the top light up and release. Now key in a two digit number between 1 and 16 (for 1-9 precede that numeric with a zero) now press the pound key at the bottom right of the remote numeric keypad. The SAT button will flash three times and press the record button until the remote address on the screen displays the one you entered. The receiver should now be able to be controlled by the remote. Now we need to do a power scan - press and hold the upper left TV button until all buttons across the top light up and release. Press the red TV button and release, The TV button should be lit constantly. Now press the channel up button slowly until the TV turns off. Once it does press the channel down once and then cannel up to see if the TV turns back on. If it does press the pound sign. Now press the record button and you are back in business. If you have further issues let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Why did it suddenly stop working?


the "pat answer" is the magic smoke leaked out. all electronics work on magic smoke, once it gets out of a device, the device wont work anymore. OK smoke comes from burned out devices. Point the remote at a digital camera and watch through the view finder, does the led in the remote light up? (you cant see it with the human eye) if so next step. plug the dongle into the TV, select the correct input and point the remote directly at the window on the dongle and try to operate the fire stick, if it works, you may need an HDMI EXTENSION cable (male to female) to move the dongle to a position where it isn't blocked from the view of the remote. Also, can you operate it from your computer using Google Chrome and the correct firestick extension? (incase the remote isn't infrared operated)

I am trying to unlock the region code for Sony BDP-S5100 with the URC7740. The hack program refers to "press and hold the &#147 key. Where or what is "&#"?


I would have to guess, that is probably not the correct remote. I feel I must inform you, trying to upgrade your firmware, from an unsavory hacker, can turn your unit into a brick(doorstop). IMO, proceed with caution.

My satellite remote control only work at close distance I have canged the batteries I tried it with the other box from bedroom in bedroom they work fine in the sitting room both dont work


Hello Aykuturer,

There are two things that you can try to resolve this problem.

1) most common interferrance for the sky remotes are WII sensors to close to box. or the TV back light is interfearing with it. If this is the case then turn off the WII (if you have one) and try that. If it is the TV back light then you can turn this down or off.

2) If you are still not getting any joy from these then you could always go to EBAY and purchase a Magic Eye / Remote Eye. They are resonably cheap from there.

Once you have got your Magic eye. Connect it into RF OUT 2 at the back of your sky box.
Then with the remote press SERVICES, 4, 0,1, Select then 4 make sure that you turn then power on and then save.

This will sort out any IR problems you are experiencing.

Hope this helps you out, If this does then please leave a thumbs up.

Cheers Little Dish Fitter.

Cannot get my sky guide to respond on my Loewe Articos 32,i think the kids have scrambled the tv remote! Any ideas?


There are several things that can stop your Sky remote from working.

step one:
get a mobile that has a camera on it. point the remote at the camera and press the TV guide button on the remote you should see a little light by looking through your camera. This is because cameras dont like infrared

if you see the light whilest looking from the camera phone then the remote is working.

Step 2:
There can interfearance from devices like WII's or if your television has a back light you can turn this down and see if this is going to make any difference to the sky box.

If it does you know what is casuing the problem.

Step 3:
There may be another solution to your problem. Go onto Ebay and type in there Magic eye. you can get them from Argos but you will be paying 3 times if not more then you can get them off ebay.

once you've got the magic eye. plug this into the back of your sky box into RF OUT 2 this must be in 2 due to it providing 9v to the eye.
on your sky remote press services, 4, 0 1 select. go to Rf setting and turn this option to ON and then go down to save. you should see a little red light on the magic eye come on this is all done.

Now try your remote as normal.

I fit sky and a lot of the HD sky+ boxes have rubbish IR (infrared) so this sorts out a lot of problems.

Hope this helps

Sky magic eye not working on hd


I work for Sky as an Engineer.

on your Sky HD remote:

service,
4,
0 1 select
4
make sure the power is turned ON

now go to the room you can not change the sky channels over with.
you should notice on the magic eye itself should now have a Red led light on it now. you should now be able to change the channel over just remember to press the blue sky button on the remote at the top otherwise this will not operate the sky box.

If not unplug this magic eye and try this directly into RF out 2 to make sure that its not the magic eye that is at fault. If it is working correctly then the light will appear.

Hope this helps

Stopped receiving sky on second tv - does my samsung need a reset


I install a lot of magic eyes etc.

You have checked that the magic eye lights up when it is connected directly into the sky box. So your eye is working correctly.

the next step I would take is with your sky remote in your main room. press SERVICES, 4, 0,1, SELECT go to RF settings and check the rf channel and make sure the power is on. Take a mental note of the channel number.

Now go into the room where the link is feeding. Turn on the TV and go to channel number 6 press your MENU button and then go down to setup. go across to manual install and then down to the channel number type in what you retrieved from you box ie rf channel and then type it in and STORE.

If you go into your main room and just put the normal tv guide on ie blue screen. then check that your getting the sky into the other room. IF you are then great it just needed tuning in. IF not I would remake the coax connectors. as there may be a bit of copper braid touching the centre core. once this is done your sky should be on all you need to do now is put the eye back on. Once you have done this the red light should appear on your magic eye. if not go to your main box and follow the first instructions I gave you and turn the power off on the RF and then save and then go back in and turn it back on and save.

Hope this sorts out your problem

Cheers
