I have the OEM and an aftermarket remote. When I turn the volume down using either remote the tv will set a timer to turn off. When I turn the volume up, sometimes the tv will show the menu or mute. Changing channels is just as interesting. Also, sometimes the remote works with a flaw. Any ideas what could be causing the random button assignment?

Here are a few suggestions to help you with this problem:
It is possible that the battery contacts are corroded so you might try expecting the contacts and cleaning them. Since you cannot see if the IR signal is being sent, you can use another IR remote that you know works and see if you can Jam the signal of the working remote with your Hql-260wr remote. To do this, push the volume up button on the TV remote and hold it down while at the same time using the known working remote to control its companion product. If the working unit stops responding correctly when the volume button is pressed, it is transmitting an IR signal.
In this case, since you confirmed that the remote is transmitting, you can make sure that you are on the correct device settings for the remote. If you select the TV setting for instance, see if the remote now can control the TV. The main functions to try first are volume and channel buttons.
If this does not work, you will need to find out where the IR receiver is on the TV and make sure that the receiver lens is not blocked by something such as another device like a video console, etc.
How old are the batteries in the remotes? The on/off signal from the remote is the same. There is some lattitude in the IR reciever module for what it accepts. Low battereis may be shifting the signal's frequency or light intensity enough for it to not be recognized.
If sunlight is failing on the sensor or the remote's IR emitter, that can cause interference. Other IR devices can also interfere with the IR signal such as a "Remote Extender" being used for something else.
It may sound odd, but if your remote was working one day and not the next- was the room rearranged? If so, look around for possible sources of interference blocking the beam from the remote, or shining or reflecting light onto the IR reciever module in the set.
check to be sure your remote is sending IR signal, with
a smart phone camera hold remote IR eye in front of camera and click any buttons on remote, you should see
a light coming from IR eye. If no light emitting, remote needs to be replaced.
to set remote to tv
1)hold down tv button next to sat button in top left corner 2) when all buttons illuminate press 500 into remote 3)press pound sign 4)Hello, please help.. 5)hold town tv button again. 6)when all buttons illuminate press big red power button 7)press up arrow once a second until tv shuts off 8)press # pound sign 9)try to turn tv back on w/ big red power button 10)if tv doesnt turn back on try again from step 2 but use down arrow instead
to set remote to receiver you need to access system info, if there is no sys info button on your receiver turn power off and press the up arrow, then press record 2 times on the remote,
Go through the process of setting up the remote again instead of trying the volume first use the power off button. In my experience, Sony receivers can be picky and power cycling "will" insure the code set, then try the volume.
