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.

tried with reset doesn't work, ok it could be the IR sensor at the front panel of the tv doesn't work. but before you replace it you need to ensure if your remote controller is working. have you tried to check the remote with camera trick just to know if the remote controller is sending light to the IR sensor of the tv.
Lets check the modulator set up at the main location TV 1. Press menu - 6-1-5 this will display how the TV 2 IS SET UP. It should say 22 air and if not use the arrow keys on the remote to change that info. Once you are done click done and go to the TV2 and see if it is working. It should be if you are set to view air or antenna channels on the TV2. If not there needs to be a few more things done to isolate the issue. Let me know and we will go from there.

UNBELIEVABLE!!! mattymcmatt has the solution!!! I have had trouble with my Visio 26" remote ever since I got it several years back. Had to mess with the batteries, BUT Finally it quit entirely several months ago. I have tried everything... batteries, unplug TV, press each button on remote, etc... just bought a new remote, and tried all the above 'fixes' AGAIN nothing has worked. read mattymcmatt's fix of unplugging tv held down the on button on the tv for little over a minute, plugged tv back in and and VIOLA my remote is now WORKING!!! thankyou matty!!!!
You can also try to take out the batteries and push all of the buttons with the batteries out of the remote. Then put the batteries back in and push the power button on the remote. If this doesnt work press the two TV buttons at the same time and the remote should be fine.
