Dynex Remote Control Not Working: Causes & Fixes

The Dynex remote control was built to provide maximum ease of operation with the Dynex TV, but it may not work as intended. Here are some of the problems that a user could face with the remote and how to fix them:

1. Body Damage

Remotes are built with plastics and they can break. So, when a user continually allows their remotes to fall on hard surfaces, the casing might break and this can affect the functions of the device. The best way to avoid damage to the remote is to carefully place it on a table or settee after each use.

2. Dust

Leaving the Dynex remote control at a spot for several days could make it gather dust which will ultimately affect its usability. You must open up the cover of the remote and then use isopropyl alcohol placed on a cotton bud to clean the internal components before coupling them together again. This will clean the device of dust and dirt and get it to work properly again.

3. Batteries

A remote control cannot work without batteries and most importantly, it won’t work with expired batteries. The remote’s batteries should be replaced once they expire or they may begin to leak and cause corrosion. To fix the battery issue:

  • Put off the TV and unplug it from the wall
  • Remove old batteries from the remote and replace them with new ones
  • Plug the TV back in and switch it on. Try the remote again to see if the issue has been fixed.

4. Faulty Buttons

Some keys on the remote may hang and fail to work no matter how hard you press them. To fix this:

  • Switch off the TV and unplug from the socket
  • Remove batteries from the remote
  • Hold down the power button for a few seconds to a minute, then press all other buttons for about 30 seconds
  • Then let the remote rest for about a minute
  • Plug the TV back and switch it on, then try the remote out now, it should work

The remote control, though small, is a very important part of the Dynex TV experience; it must be fully functional for the user to enjoy a home entertainment experience.  But in a case where the remote stops working, applying the tips provided in this piece will remedy the situation.
