Hello,

I am having trouble with my Logik TV (it's a HD 1080p Digital LCD with DVD Player). The TV is not recognising the remote control (this is the one which it orginally came with). They have worked fine together up until this point. I have replaced the batteries with new ones and the remote lights up red when I press buttons on it but the TV is just not recognising it. I would appreciate any help with this problem!

Thanks.

Sarah: It could be that the infra-red receiver on the TV set has been damaged.

One thing to check for is that you don't have an energy-saving light shining brightly nearby.

Thank you for your comment back Brian. I don't have an energy saving light shining nearby so it must be something to do with the infra-red receiver on the TV. Do you know whether this is something that can be fixed?

Thanks.

Sarah: It should be fixable, but it isn't something you could do yourself. If you have had the set for less than two years the retailer you got it from should fix it for free for you (or indeed replace it).

Sarah is it during day time or all the time sometimes very brigth sunlight can cause this also does the remote have a button on the top that says tv if it does try pressing it some remotes can do other things by pressing other buttons.

Thanks for both of your comments Brian and Mazbar.

Mazbar: It isn't just during the day-time that it isn't working. I have pressed every single button on the remote and nothing happens, so I think it must be a problem with the infra red receiver, like Brian mentioned.

Brian: I bought my TV last June and it was only under warranty for a year, so I doubt that they will fix it for me free of charge now. I will call into the retailer and see what they say though.

Thanks again.

Sarah: There is one final test you can do to check if the infra red "sender" on the remote control is still working.

The procedure is, if you have a digital camera switch it on and hold the remote control in front of the camera lens so that you can see it clearly on the cameras LCD screen, then whilst watching press any button on the remote and hold it for a few seconds, if the remotes sender is working you will see a flickering white dot showing up on the cameras screen.

This test of course only tests the infra red sender device itself.

jb38: Thanks for that comment. I was wondering how I would know whether it was the infra-red receiver on the TV that was broken or whether it was the infra-red sender on the remote control. I have just tested it using my camera and I did see a flickering white dot so it mustn't be the remote control.

Mazbar: I have just unplugged the TV from the mains and this hasn't worked either.

Thanks to everyone for your help but it looks like I'm going to have to take it back to the retailer and see if they can fix it.
