So this video is going to be for if your TVis not responding to your remote, but it still works with the keypad.
This is a good wayto check that your remote is transmitting.
All you are going to need for this is a remoteand a cell phone.
This is going to work with more cell phones, some are not sensitive toinfrared, and may not function.
If you are not sure grab another one from a friend andjust try using that.
OK, so you are going to want to load up yourcamera app on your phone and once you have done that, you are going to go ahead and youare going to point the remote right at the camera lens.
When you do it, you can justpoint straight at the lens and then you can press any button on the remote and you aregoing to check the screen.
So if the remote is working, you are going to see it blinkingon your phone.
We have dimmed the lights in here, so youcan see it, but when the remote is working you are going to see when you push the button,that the LED in the end of the remote lights up.
That is a sign that your remote is workingand that it is probably an issue with your TV.
