Remote doesn't work on Panasonic TV

by diane783 / March 4, 2007 11:04 AM PST

Remote suddenly stopped working on panasonic tv (model #CT-27SC14). Bought a new universal remote and went through trying to program the code by letting it find the codes. Either the programming didn't take, or the tv is not accepting signals from a remote. Is there a way I can tell what is broken?

It is possible that little hands helped get us into this situation- if there is a way to lock the set from responding to a remote, perhaps that was done to it????

I've had the same problem with our Panasonic. It's been impossible to find anyone to help us. Any ideas would be appreciated.

The remote stopped working

on our new DirecTV HD receiver setup. I called DirecTV and they said to push the reset button, which started up the whole system again and fixed the problem.
Maybe if you unplug your TV for a minute or so, it will "reset" and maybe fix things.
I hope this is of some help.
