This sounds like a very common issue.

If set is hard to turn on (have to try several times) but will eventually turn on here is what my guess would be.

Every set has a standby power supply that is running 7/24 if the set is plugged and it supplies voltages to the remote circuit that turn the main power supply and the set hence ON.

This is an area where companies cut corners by using lower rated caps. By this I mean standby usually supplies under ten volts to to trigger the set on----what they do is use a filter capacitor/s rated at say ten volts max in a circuit with 9 volts----With the standby on all the time the filter caps (electrolytic caps) dry out inside and fail.

The problem usually begins where you have to turn set on one or two times and gradually gets worse---takes longer and more tries to get it to come up.

Once its on it will stay on until turned off for a period of time.

The caps will begin to work better (regain some of the capacitance) as they get hot===hence once on it will seem ok.

The beauty of this problem is most of them happen when the set is a year or two old and all you have to do is look at them.

They are generally black and round and vary in size---they have two connections on each: a plus and a minus---easy to replace.

The tops are silver and metal looking with creases in them and if bad in this way they will be puffed up on top----the tops must be flat and perfectly so.

If this is your problem once you id them by location(make a drawing of them) you will find the plus and minus marked on the board as well as a location number for each.

Here is the critical part--on side of each cap the value is also marked like 220 uf 10vdc= 220 microfarad at 10 volts DC (maximum working voltage) if you find for example 6 puffed up and all are 10 vdc replace with same value but go up to at least 16 volt or higher rated caps.

The only issue is when you go up in voltage rated value the cap is larger so sometimes a issue of space to fit them in the board.

The reason they cheapen these sets this way is if 10 caps and you make 25,000 sets the difference in part cost for those is enough to be important to the maker.

They do not care as long as it lasts the usual 1 year parts warranty.

I have taken the time to be long winded because this really sounds like what your problem may be.

see attached photo of typical cap and if you have questions or need advise let me know---I also have a blog just started for experts here and people with questions sd-tech.blogspot.com

I need remote control code for Dawin TV


If you do not know the code, you can use the code search function to program the remote control.

Using Code Search:

1. Turn on the device you want to program into the remote.

2. Point your remote control at the device

3. Press and hold the "Code Search" button for about 3 seconds until the light on the remote stays on.

4. Press the button on the remote for the device you want to program. Push the "TV" button to program the TV, press the "DVD" button to program the DVD player, etc. The light on the remote control will blink and stay on.

5. Slowly press and release the power button repeatedly until the device turns off. Each time you push the power button the light should blink once.

6. Press "Enter" to save the code into the remote and the light will turn off.

How do i program my remote


Hello;

Without knowing the codes for the specific brand names and models of your devices, this is how you program the Zenith MBR3447 for your TV, VCR, DVD Player, CD Player or Audio Receiver:

TV

1. Push the "Power" button on the TV to turn it on.
2. Press and hold the "PRG" button in the upper left corner of the remote. Release when the indicator light, located in the top center of the remote control, comes on.
3. Push the "TV" mode key located at the top of the remote.
4. Enter 0 -- 0 -- 0 on the remote's number pad, then press the "Enter" button.
5. Aim the remote control in the direction of the TV's IR sensor and push the "Power" button. Pause a second. If the TV fails to shut off, push the "Power" button again. Repeat until the TV does shut off. Each time the "Power" button is pressed the Zenith MBR3447 tries using a different TV device code from its code library to turn the TV off. Therefore, when the TV finally does shut off it's an indication that the remote is temporarily programmed with the correct device code to control the brand of TV you're using.
6. Press "Enter" to save the current code.

VCR

1. Push the "Power" button on the VCR to turn it on.
2. Press and hold the "PRG" button in the upper left corner of the remote. Release when the indicator light, located in the top center of the remote control, comes on.
3. Push the "VCR" mode key located at the top of the remote.
4. Enter 0 -- 0 -- 0 on the remote's number pad, then press the "Enter" button.
5. Aim the remote control in the direction of the VCR's IR sensor and push the "Power" button. Pause a second. If the VCR fails to shut off, push the "Power" button again. Repeat until the VCR does shut off. Then press "Enter."

DVD Player, CD Player or Audio Receiver

1. Push the "Power" button on the device your programming the remote to control to manually turn it on.
2. Press and hold the "PRG" button in the upper left corner of the remote. Release when the indicator light, located in the top center of the remote control, comes on.
3. Push the "AUX" mode key located at the top of the remote.
4. Enter 0 -- 0 -- 0 on the remote's number pad, then press the "Enter" button.
5. Aim the remote control in the direction of the device's IR sensor and push the "Power" button. Pause a second. If the device fails to shut off, push the "Power" button again. Repeat until the device does shut off. Then press "Enter."

I have a Daenyx TV- model DN402, bought it in April of 2008. All of a sudden the TV Is having issues with powering up. The green button responds to the remote and TV button only flashes green which is...


If you are pressing the power on button on the remote, you might want to try replacing the batteries, and make sure the contacts in the remote are clean and not corroded. With some remote controls a clear line of site is needed from remote to TV sensor. You might try moving closer to the TV to eliminate the possibility of an obstructed line of site. If the remote sensor is optical there may be dust covering the sensor and diminishing the signal. clean it with a soft cloth and maybe dampen with windex.

Programming problem


a universal remote control is programmable without codes using this general process:
  • push and hold 3 sec the button set up
  • select the device to control (TV DVD etc)
The tv has to be ON at this step (use the power button in the tv front panel
  • use the remote control power button and try to get your tv pushing the button again and again and again
  • Caution! Go slow because when finally the tv turns on you have to push enter in the remote control to save this code that actually is the one the tv needs,
