Customer Question
My remote is not...

My remote is not working, how can I get the TV from standby to on without using the remote

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

Over 12 years but still good. I think the model is POP-S26-LR

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I try switching on and off and the remote has come back to life previously but takes a while. Is there a button on the set i can press?

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.

Could you recheck the model number for me, what you sent would be the add on speakers, nor the tv itself. It should be printed on a sticker on the back of the tv and likely starts with PDP
