Re: Tv remote programming killed my tv

its not possible for an IR signal to kill your TV. the IR is just light that a light sensor sees.

If your TV has died its just bad timing it would of died anyway with the TV remove as well

1. Check batteries in handset

2. If it's a plasma TV you might have to switch it on via the button on the TV before it accepts the handset

3. Try it with the TV handset.

4. Reprogram the handset if it's not the handset that comes with the TV

5. Clean the area on the TV where the IR sensor is located.
