Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2000 40 in. LCD HDTV
I have a Sony Bravia KDL40W2000. Suddenly, the remote control doesn't work and the manual control buttons do not work properly e.g channel up button turns volume down, volume down button turns volume up. I've reset the TV, turned it of, changed batteries on remote, nut problem persists. Has anyone any ideas how to fix this? Regards, Steve
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.

First, change the batteries on the remote with e new set of batteries. Check to see if you can bring up the menu using the buttons on the TV itself. Let me know what happens

You can repair some of these remotes. Usually the hard part is getting the cover off. they are not really made to be serviced. The problem with most all remotes that start doing what you describe is either wear or something spilled on it. You can fix it. Sony remotes may have 1 screw in the battery compartment. remove it and try sliding the front and back. If that dosen't work try prying from one side with a sharp edege. If you do manage to get it open take the PC board out. You will see a rubber like membrane that lays against the board. Try cleaning that with a qtip and rubbing alcahol. Then clean the PC board the same way especially where the pads of rubber contact the board. Make sure it's completely dry and snap it back together. If it works better good, if not the pads are to worn and you just have to replace. Good Luck.

This is caused by radio frequency and what i mean by that isyour tv unit is gettng confused with the crystals that control the connection between the tv and remote.The solution to this is to go to wal mart and buy a new universal remote and in the package should be an instruction manual to set the remote to the tv , First find your tv name in the pamplet,second there will show a code of the remote type it in and enjoy.
