Remote control certain buttons not working

Joining in

Hi my remote doesn’t work in that certain buttons work but some don’t. The numbers 67890 don’t work and the channel and volume doesn’t work 


the batteries are fine and I’ve tried all factory resets so how do I get hold of a new remote - I e had it around 10 years

Hi @Cubajulie 

You should be able to order a replacement by logging into My Virgin Media at the top of the page, or by using this direct link  Order new remote 

If the links aren't working either clear your cache and cookies or try a different browser

You can also try the TV Faults option when dialling 150 from a VM phone or 0345 454 1111, but best to call at 8am -10am, or afternoon teatime to avoid call queues.  

A member of the forum team may pick this up for you in a day or two.

For now you could download the TV Control app and use that until you receive a replacement remote
