Hi Darryl

Ok I need you to check the operation of the remote control by doing this >>point the remote control at a cellphone or digital camera and press buttons that are working you will see a glow coming from the "eye" in the front of the remote through the viewfinder of the camera now press the volume buttons is their still a glow coming from the "eye"?if not the remote is bad and you will need a new remote I will provide more details on that once you confirm if the remote is bad.

I am sending a rating bar please only rate if problem resolved or a conclusion reached if not please press the "reply to expert" tab without rating and I will provide more help

This is an ongoing session

Many Thanks

Hi Darryl

So I assume you carried out that very important check to eliminate the remote?

Its very very rare to get a situation like this were the remote works OK for other functions but not for one function

Please let me know you carried out the check

Also is this the ORIGINAL remote for the set OR is it a universal?

I HAVE TRY BOTH HOW MANNY TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY IT IS NOT THE REMOTE

Hi

I can see your frustrated with this but what your describing is a situation that I have only seen once in 30 years of working with TVs its VERY LIKELY to be the remote than the set you may have two broken remotes

Have you rebooted the TV by unplugging it from wallpower waiting 5 mins then replugging back in again?

how many times do i have to say is is not it is not the remote. is there any other solution you can come up with. and if so about how much it cost just a ball park figure is fine. it is not the remote

Hi

OK but its very bizzare that the remote does other functions but not the sound or on off it will mean that the mainboard will need to be replaced thats were the processing for the remote control takes place $250 for a tech to fix if you can get the set into a repairers yourself, you can find a tech in your area by using this link www.tvrepairpros.com
