Determining Service

If you have verified that you are using the correct input and have also replaced the batteries but your remote does not respond, the sensor on the remote or on the main unit may be failing. Follow the steps below to determine which is failing and requires service.

 

To test the remote, you will need a digital camera or a cell phone with a built-in camera.

1 Turn on the digital camera or activate the camera feature on your cell phone.
2 Point the HTS remote at the camera and then press and hold the Power or Volume or Channel Buttons on the remote. As you hold the button down look at the camera screen. If the remote is sending an IR signal you will see a colored light coming from the remote control. On some camera phones it may show as a light lavender colored light.

    • If you can see the IR light flickering or flashing on the camera screen, your remote is working properly but the sensor on the main unit is not, the main unit requires service. To arrange service online click the Online Service Request button below this article.

  
    • Universal remotes are not recommended since not all HTS functions may be supported by the universal remote, however, basic functions may work.
