Are there batteries in the remote controller? Are they installed correctly?


When pointing at the TV and pressing any key does the remote red light IR indicator turn “on”.


If not, batteries might be done, installed incorrectly or defective. Replace batteries.


If yes but regardless of button pressed nothing happens on TV proceed with following:


Previous years televisions (until 2009) included multi-brand remote to operate other devices.


Have customer press the TV button at the top besides VCR, DVD, CABLE, SAT


Remote might be designed differently having a MODE button and indicator lights for above.


Have customer toggle the MODE button until the indicator light stops at TV


If all these steps fail at produce desired results, either remote or TV IR sensor faulty.


It often happens that the device mode button is pressed unwillingly accidentally.
