Light at the remote control flashes; does not mean it works properly. You have to check whether it emits infrared rays out from its front; which activates the TV. The indicator light blinks; means the remote control is working, and the the batteries are good. That's all. The infrared light that emits from its front side [infrared LED] is not visible to human eye. It can be detected by an electronic camera. If infrared ray emitting LED is faulty, the TV won't respond to remote control.
Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.

My telefunken tv is not responding to my remote control even though the remote control is flashing

LCD2710HDAF television will not respond to remote control


Hi Alan,
Here are a few steps to troubleshoot.

1) Make sure that the new batteries are correctly installed.
2) Make sure that there is a line-of-sight between the remote and the TV while operating.
3)Not recommended- but might work. Give your remote a little shake. If there is a small circuit loose connection it will be adjusted. :P I do this all the time.
4) Buy a new remote. You can buy a universal remote which are available on the market. They are cheap. It will NOT be harmful to your TV.
OR
you can buy a genuine one.

The TV stopped responding to the remote control


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.

Remote control slow to respond to Bush tv (LT42M1CFA)


Even though your TV s remote control emits infrared light, it might have not sufficiant frequency as it supposed to be. The fault with its resonator crystal inside the circuit board need replacement. It will look like this. Replace it with exact frequency marked on it.8_16_2012_4_53_50_pm.jpg

Rca 24" tv remote won't operate tv


If set turns on with the power button on set the remote is : not set to TV, not programmed for the set, has bad batteries or is bad.

If it even works one function it may need to be reprogrammed or taken apart to see if works---you can test the remote by pointing it at a digital camera with a LCD screen and pressing buttons to see if it makes the screen flash on the camera.

Test the remote first

My remote control is not responding. I even put new batteries in it, but there is no response. I even put the remote closer to the tv and still doesn't work. What happen to my remote control.


If the old batteries were dead for a while before you replaced them (or you took too long to switch them), your remote has probably lost the codes for your devices. You will need to program the remote codes again before it works.

If not, your remote is probably faulty - possibly the infra-red (IR) transmitter. You can use a video camera to check transmitters. The flashes are invisible to the naked eye, but can be seen through the view finder on a video camera.


Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks!

My tv doesnt respond to the remote any more. I fitted new batteries but nothing - not even to stich it off> TV works fine from the on set controls


Testing remote control:
The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera's Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera's screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the TV IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals.

I have a logitech Harmony 890 remote. The battery


To check to see if your device is controlled by a RF (radio frequency) or IR (infrared) remote:

Power the device on manually

Cover the front of the original remote that came with the device with your hand

Press any button on the remote that you know the device would respond to normally

If the device responds even when your hand is covering the front of the remote, the remote is RF and the device cannot be controlled by the Harmony remote


Another test that can be performed is using digital camera:

Using any digital camera, even one on a cell phone, camcorder or webcam, look through the screen of the camera at the front of the remote

Press a few buttons on the original remote

If you see flashes of light as illustrated, the remote is IR and the Harmony can control it. If the remote does not flash, this original remote is an RF remote and the device cannot be controlled by the Harmony remote

For comparison, try the same steps with a remote control that you know is working correctly, such as the original remote for the TV, or DVD player. You should see the IR emitters flashing when performing this test.

Remotes no longer work


I had this exact same problem. After a week or so it started responding to the remote control again. Then after a couple of days it stopped responding. This problem came and went for about a month, then one day the entire TV went dead. When I powered it on, the green light appeared for 2 seconds followed by a sequence of 6 flashing red lights that repeated. I brought my set in to a repair shop and they replaced the power supply board. That fixed the problem and now the TV powers up and responds to the remote control again. Total charge was $250. That was very disappointing for a $1,500 TV that was only 18 months old. I'm going to let Philips know how disappointed I am in their product!
