the philips remote does not respond properly to pressing "tv" and "ok". that should cause it to enter programming mode and flash lights to prove it. these two different remotes refuse to do that despite installing new batteries. help! cant program it to new tv
this may sound goofy but it has worked for me. When you go to bed tonight, take the batteries out of the remote and let it set overnight. Tomorrow put the batteries back in and try programming.
I dont know why this works, but each time I need to change batteries, this is what I have to do, otherwise the remote refuses to enter programming mode. On one of my remotes anyway. The others work fine but that one wont do it unless I leave the batteries out overnight. And it works. lol
