How many times have you had your remote control to your television go bad to end up throwing out the remote and buying one of those pesky universal remotes?
Before you throw that remote out there is the possibility that it can be reset and restored back to life. The process I am going to tell you about, I learned from the video below (from the Remote Barn); AND, it actually worked. A neighbor of mine had a TV remote control quit working to the point that when he pushed any button on the remote the television would go to channel “0”. After researching the problem on the internet, I found the following method that you can try to reset the remote. In my neighbors case it worked and I was made out to look like some type of genius.
STEP 1: Remove the batteries from the remote.
STEP 2 (IMPORTANT): Individually, for 3 seconds, push, hold and release each button , and I mean each and every button on the remote.
STEP 3: Replace the batteries in the remote.
