Unplug the TV for 30 minutes. Then plug & unplug 3 or 4 times quickly. After the last plug in the remote should work. We had the same problem and that fixed it.

RC-261 fails to turn on/off Insignia TV. Remote stopped working (batteries good)


Check the battery contacts inside its battery compartment for any rust or dust accumulated. Clean them well. If this too do not help you, check the remote control for its infrared emission. In some cases, cleaning the remote control may be necessary. If you wish to get more details about how to check, repair and clean a remote control, visit this site. Pull up older posts. One among the post has details.

Ah59-02342a doesn't control tv anymore


Hi I had exactly the same problem with mine it worked the DVD player fine but not the TV even though previously it had worked both .......... Manual Guide In the manual guide I managed to dig out it says to do the following to set up the remote to work the TV

Press the TV button on the remote
Then whilst holding down the power button you need to enter in the samsung TV codes until your TV turns off (I only got to the first and it did it)
The numbers are 00, 15, 16, 17, 40, 43, 46, 47, 48, 49, 59, 60, 98

Hope this helps

Batteries are good. However TV isn't on right channel to show any programming what to do?


Hi William,
To confirm if the remote control is working fine, aim the infrared emitter of the remote control to your cellphone camera, press any button key and check if the infrared will flash to your camera. Watch this video on how to do this trick.
Also, does the front panel button key of the TV isn't working?

Samsung TV remote. I noticed today my TV remote wasn't working. I changed the batteries and noticed there had been some leakage from the AAA batteries. Since changing the batteries the 8 buttons on the top...


Giving you some hints. Battery leakage is one enemy of tv control and other remote control. They can corrode your battery spring contact, give contact bridges with neighboring tracks that can cause erratic behavior of your remote.

Some repairs can be done but doesn't guarantee success. First is try to clean the corrosion on battery contact = no power usually. Erratic behavior cause by contact bridging = battery leak residues.

Opening a remote control. Some have screws on its small foot. Covered by a rubber or sticker. Some are notch clip in strategic location you have to fry that one by one, opening first on its weakest side. In some don't want to be open.

Cleaning the board by a soft eraser is one way. After you open the remote. Commonly the button area where contact takes place.

If the first procedure and cleaning doesn't work. Buy new remote or use universal remote controller.

My Polaroid remote control won't work.


First we need to know if the remote is working. Heres the "secret" way to check a remote. Use a cell phone w/camera.

  • Set the cell phone to camera
  • while watching the camera screen and a known good remote, aim the remote at the lens and press a button (volume works well) on the remote (not a device button ie; sat,tv,vcr,etc). You should see lights turn on/flash. Now you know your camera can detect IR light.
  • Do the same again with the remote in question. If there is no IR light output, the remote is the problem. replace the batteries, ensure good battery contact, retest the remote.
If the remote is working then the problem is in the unit.

Let me know what you find.

Neat trick, huh? Please take the time to rate this.

Vizio 50 inch plasma -- remote not working


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.
