Dtv converter box installation problem

My fairly new TV has lost the ability to recognize the remote. tried new ones, reprogramming the old one, everything I can think of and I guess the infrared "eye" has gone out. I was told by 2 different "experts" that if I buy the DTV converter box I can then use the remote. We weren't going to need the boxes since we have cable, but if they would solve my problem, it would be better than trying to take the TV in for repair.
We tried hooking one of the boxes up and it goes thro the channel scan and everything, but then says no channels found. We tried the second one and it did the same thing. I am at a loss as to the problem. It wouldn't be the fact that we have cable would it? Or is something else wrong?

Thanks for your help

May be the problem is the how you connect the converter to the tv... it shoud be connected at the video in and audio in of the tv... and the cable wire should be plug in the Rf in of the converter.. you can scan all the channel thru the remote..

My panasonic up/down channel buttons on the side of the tv wont work


Try getting a Harmony remote control. It will operate your tv and anything else you can connect to it. When the TV gets too old to fix, the remote can be reprogrammed for the new TV, so it never gets obsolete. The remote is programmed from their website.

I have a liftmaster 1255km(model) with a clicker remote opener model KlIk2. All devices that were used to open the garage lost the ability to open. I have reprogrammed all devices including hand held...


I think you are saying everything except the Klik2 has quit working. If that is so check to see if the light in the wall button is blinking. Press the 'lock' button for 3 seconds and the light should glow steadily and the remotes will work. If you are saying all remotes plus the Klik2 has quit then your logic board has failed.

I have tried to program my FiOS Verizon remote control to recognize my Proscan HD TV so that I don't have to use two remote devices. I don't like using two remotes and my Proscan remote control is so...


Thank you. I did solve my problem with some diligence. The instructions from Verizon were correct. I realized that there are two buttons on the Verizon universal remote that look alike - the "play" arrow and the "fast forward" double arrow. Once I used both of these buttons in the proper sequence, reprogramming the TV remote with the new code worked.

We need a new remote for our ilo TV in order to hook up a DVD-VCR player!


First off you will need a remote that has the ability to operate your ILO TV. www.remotes.com has a replacement that will work for you. As you will need to access the inputs for your TV to receive the signal from your Philips unit

Olevia Remote Control Codes


I think you are out of luck. None of the universal remotes recognize Olevia tvs. The manufacturer claims its because they are too new.

It sounds like you loaded a wrong code to the TV. Though I don't know how. You should have been loading the TV's code to the remote. but if nether remote will work then something got loaded to the TV. check your TV's owners manual. There should be a way to bring everything back to default. Usually by pressing a series of buttons on the menu and turning on the tv. I wouldn't know the set of buttons as every tv is different. But it should be in the owners manual or on the web site. Reseting the tv to default should cure the issue. Sony will help you but they will charge you for the call. If you cannot find the information in the owners manual go to sony's web site and check the FAQ section to see if someone else has had this problem. Sony is usually fairly good with information on the web. You should be able to find what you need to do to take the TV back to default. BEWARE THOUGH! any information you programmed to the tv will be lost when you do this. You will have to reprogram it. (TV channels etc...)
