    Thanks, but i fixed it.
    According to other forums, the IR reciever on the recievers front panel circuit board has cold breaks in the solder.

    You can tell if this is your problem if light tapping on the front panel of the reciever makes the remote control work again.

    I resoldered the three contact points on the recievers front panel IR and it works like a charm.....

    I have a pic of the cold breaks before i resoldered them.....

I had this problem and clearly saw the three solder joints had the telltail rings as indentified by blade613. Resolder them and so far so good. Thanks a million blade613, I had been trying to solve this problem for a year.

It could be the receiver LED. But I would try cleaning the remote pads first and infrared LED.

APEX K12K-C5 UNABLE TO have remote turned with new batteries. need a manual for the above product.


Here's an interesting trick to test if the remote has functionality - use the camera function on your phone and aim the remote towards the camera while trying out the buttons. The camera is infra red sensitive and it will appear as a white light on your phone screen if the remote is working.

I just opened my dyson AM09 and the remote does not seem to work. Could the remote be bad? Is there something special I need to do to get the remote to work.


A trick to test if the remote is working - get your mobile phone and turn on the camera function. Aim the sender on the fan remote at the camera and push the remote buttons. The phone camera is infra red sensitive and if the remote is working, it will appear as a white light. This trick works on all infra red remote controls.

My original RM-C1502-1C remote [gradually] stopped working. Bought a new one. This worked perfectly for 1 day then stopped working except randomly/intermittently.


Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing each button on it at a time; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician.

My sanyoRC-S071 remote only works some times


This could be batteries that need to be replaced (try again but standing closer to the TV to see if it works all the time), failing to aim the remote at the TV, obstructions (dirt / dust) on the remote IR transmit window or TV IR receive window.

Dstv remote doesnt work..


Take your cell phone and turn the camera on, then aim the remote at the cell phones camera while pressing different buttons.

The infra red light will become visible and be flickering at different intervals depending on what button is pressed.

That is the start to see if it is even "TRANSMITTING".

Any infra red device that transmits will do this on a web or cell phone camera regardless of what it is.

They can see what we cannot with out eye!

Start there first if all coding fails and you still have the red indicator light working.

I hope this helped solve step one!

I have a orion sled 46 in and the remote will turn it off but will not turn i on


Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Although it works for switch OFF, if the intensity of infra-red rays are weak, it should switch it back ON. Check the remote control with fresh batteries. If it behaves like this even with fresh batteries, the infra-red emitter LED at the front of the remote control should be faulty, and need replacement. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up older posts. Details about how to check a remote control is given.

Remote does not respond to any function, tv is on and cannot change chanel or anything, frozen


you need to check the battery contact with the battery terminal make sure that the terminal is clean.

check open the cover of your remote and check the solder of the battery terminal from the pcb board use a soldering iron resolder it.

using your cellphone camera test the infra red emmision of your remote control aim the camera to the infra red of your remote.you must see at the screen of the camera that the infra red is lit when any button is pressed..if not the infra red is busted.

using your cellphone camera again to test the infra red emmision of your TV. Aim the camera to the infra red of your TV.you must see at the screen of the camera that the infra red is illuminating.if not the infra red sensor of the TV is busted.
