Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the TV.
More importantly, would the TV operated normally using the front/side panel buttons?
Please re-check the model number. It would be something like X405BV-FHDR.
There is a partial test to confirm if the original remote is working or not. Click HERE. With fresh batteries correctly installed, point the remote towards the lens of an active digital camera. For every press of any/all button(s) on the remote, there should be a bright light that would register on the LCD screen of the camera.
No light, no infrared transmission from the remote; remote most likely faulty.
On the otherhand, if the remote is good, then consider a possible IR sensor hardware concern in the unit itself or a compatibility issue.
Please post back results of camera test.
Sorry Michael but it is a bad remote. The no pulsing light from the remote as may be seen from the camera's display would confirm the original remote's failure.
I am hesitant to propose a universal remote as in some instances, the universal remote may not have the correct code to interface with the TV or in some instances, not all the functions/features are duplicated.
It may be more to your advantage to consider an original replacement remote control. Please click HERE to consider.
Hi again Michael,
