I have a Hitachi Ultravision TV Model #50ux53k v7h002332. The remote is working and also changed the Batteries. The Tv is not reacting to the remote like it should. It randomly will not turn on or off and sometimes the volume and channel control does the same. I will have to get very close to the tv for it to work, and then it still sometimes will not work. what migh be the Problem?


If you have to hold the remote very close it is likely a bad remote receiver in the front control panel; the only other reason would be a dirty lens there or at the top of the remote.Let me know if all manual front buttons work normal. ... Hitachi Projection Televisions

I own a 50PL9126D/37 50 in DLP TV I bought used and the picture is dark so I took it apart because I was told it could be dusty or could be the lamp. After I cleaned the inside screen VERY carefully with a microfiber cloth I reassembled the set and now the power button or blue doesn't come on nor does the remote work anymore. Plus the TV is still dark, which I figure must be the lamp. I can turn the TV on by plugging it in and hitting one of the side buttons (different one every time) and then u

I am presently working on a Samsung HLN437W. The unit will turn on and all controls on the set or remote work, after a short while all the controls freeze up and do not work. The only way to turn off the unit is to pull the plug. Sometimes it seems to work properly but if you shut it off with the controls and leave it plug in after awhile you cannot turn it back on, you have to unplug it for awhile before plugging it back in.

The controls on the TV and from the remote will not work if they are not used for 20 - 30 minutes. It is not simply a remote issue because the controls on the front TV panel will also not respond. So, we have to turn the TV off and back on again to be able to use it. However, after you press the power button on the remote or on the TV to turn the TV off it takes about 20 seconds for the TV to finally respond and turn off. This issue is not limited to a single source. It occurs when we are wat

I was watching T.V. and when I went to change the channel, the remote control wouldn't respond. I changed the batteries (generic) & the new ones didn't make the remote work either. I hit the power button on the T.V. and it did turn the T.V. on & off & changed the channels. I think the bulb or the eye on the remote is the problem. I can't remember ever seeing the bulb actually lit up. It is dark, so it seems it would be red. It's an old T>V> & remote, but has always worked. HELP PLEASE.
