Remote not working?

Post by Admin on Sat Mar 15, 2008 1:42 am

You can test your Remote is working correctly by viewing it through your mobile phone or digital camera, you will be able to see a flashing light if its working.

1. Turn your mobile phone to camera mode, or turn on your digital camera.
2. Point the front of the remote into the lens of the camera and press a few buttons on the remote.
3. You should now see a flashing light on the display screen of your mobile/camera.

If you see a flashing light in the display, the sensor on the TV, HIFI maybe faulty.
If no light, check the batterys and retry. If still no flashing light, the remote maybe faulty.
If you let go of all buttons and the light is still flashing you may have a button stuck down, check all your buttons.

Did you know you can easily test if a remote control is working by using a digital camera or camera-phone?

The 'Infra-Red' light that comes from a remote is usually invisible........ until viewed digitally.

Just look at a Digital camera LCD display whilst getting someone to use the remote aimed at the camera.

You should see little flashes of White light. This works best close-up, in a darkened room.

(You could also use a camcorder, and of course any mobile phone with a camera. Try it!)
Different way of explaining it but same thing,
