What To Do When The JVC TV Remote Stops Working?

At times the problem isn’t in the television; instead, it’s the remote that stops working. However, fixing a JVC TV remote is pretty easy unless it’s broken.

Before you do anything else, ensure that you have tried changing batteries; it’s possible that the older batteries died, and that’s why the remote stopped working.

But if you have tried changing batteries but it wasn’t of any help, here are some methods of fixing the remote that you can follow:

Method # 1

  • For this method, you need to remove the batteries from your JVC TV remote completely.
  • Next, unplug the TV’s AC adapter and keep it unplugged for 60 seconds.
  • After 60 seconds, plug the adapter back in and also put the batteries in the remote control.
  • Now, you can turn on the TV and check the remote.

If this first method doesn’t help, move on to the next one.

Method # 2

Sometimes dirt can get stuck under the remote buttons, which stops them from functioning. In order to remove them, follow these steps:

  • Take the batteries out of the remote control.
  • Now, you need to press all the buttons on the remote at least twice.
  • This will loosen any dirt stuck inside, and the remote will probably start working again.

If this method doesn’t help either, the last thing you can do is get a new JVC TV remote control or a universal JVC remote.
