All of a sudden my universal remote for my TV stopped working. I figured that my remote was broke so I bought another universal remote. This fails to turn on my set. BUT it does work on my cable box and VCR.
I got another universal remote and this one (made by Magnavox which is my TV brand) fails to turn on my TV set. Again my cable box and VCR work with the universal remote.
Question is now it appears it is my TV at fault NOT the remote. Is the only solution to buy an new TV. The TV is about 5 years old but works beautifully. The only thing I hate is I can’t turn it off and on or control the volume.
Does anyone have any ideas what may be wrong. Nothing is in front of the TV. I don’t see where the eye for the remote is but it must be in front.
