Remote not working

Changed batteries and remote still doesn't work. Had problem about 2 wks ago, unplugged tv, replugged and everything worked. Tried universal remote and it didn't work either. Is is something in the tv? TV is about 8 yrs old. Took remote apart and everything looked ok. TV workd fine but you have to do everything the old fashioned way. You have to actually get up and press the buttons! What is the world coming to?

Sometimes dust is accumulated in tv remote receiver sensor. This will give you the malfunction. Because your statement says TV is about 8 yrs old. Better solution is make one general service. If you have remote checker check the TV original remote working or not. We say universal remote, sometimes even technical person does not know how to use. Because in each and every brand and model there is a secret code to initiate the version. So better make one general service and check in your original remote it is working.

Remotes not working for tv


You have already diagnosed the problem,the remote receiver on the tv is bad,is rare but it happens but before you call for help try unpluging the tv from the wall for 10 minutes and then plug it back in and try it,sometimes this takes care of the problem,if that does not do it you will need the help of a servicer ,your remotes are working but the receiver is not processing the information.If you are familiar with tv service it should be easy to locate the receiver,sometimes is soldered to the chassis and sometimes is part of the push button assembly and conected to the chassis by wires,if is part of the push button is easier to replace,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and ask for help.
