Home Theater Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.
This is an independent site and members of this online community provide information, repair tips, technical assistance as a form of paid Q & A service.
Initially, there is a partial test to confirm if the old remote is working or not. 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 (least likely).Perhaps the video HERE may shed insight.Please post back results of the camera test.
