Westinghouse TV Remote not Working

Westinghouse has manufactured high-quality and reliable TVs for many years. When your Westinghouse TV Remote is not working, it can upset your entire family’s plans for watching their favorite TV programs. There are a number of common potential reasons for your Westinghouse TV Remote not working. Rapid and accurate troubleshooting can determine what is causing your remote to fail to work so that you are then able to remedy the problem quickly so you and your family can resume watching TV.

If your Westinghouse TV Remote is not working, make sure that the batteries are placed properly and that the battery charge level is not too low. Conduct a Power Scan by pressing the Clear TV button. When the remote’s lights turn on, press on the Red TV Power Button on the remote control.

Now press on the Up Arrow on the Westinghouse TV Remote about every second and wait for the Westinghouse TV to shut off. Then press on the # button and turn the TV on again and then check to see if the volume is now working.

You can also check to see if any wireless computers, tablets, or smartphones are possibly interfering with your Westinghouse TV Remote. Make sure they are kept away from your Westinghouse TV and are also not near the remote. Be sure to keep anything in your TV room that could block the remote and is too near the path from the remote to the Westinghouse TV.

You can also try to solve the problem by resetting your Westinghouse TV Remote. Take off the back cover of the Westinghouse TV Remote and take the batteries out of the remote. Then press any button on the remote for 60 seconds in order to drain the power from the remote, which will then reset the remote. Then put the batteries back in and replace the back cover of the Westinghouse TV Remote.

Westinghouse TV Remote Not Responding

If your Westinghouse TV Remote is not responding, you need to resync the remote with your Westinghouse TV. Hopefully, this will resolve the problem. If not, continue on with further troubleshooting steps as described below.

If your Westinghouse TV Remote is not working and not responding, turn on your Westinghouse TV. Press Mute and Select at the same time and wait to see 2 blinks. Enter the code 991 and wait for 2 blinks. Now enter 1 and press the Volume Up key.

 Then, point your Westinghouse TV Remote at the TV and keep pressing Channel Up. Press Select and then set the Mode to TV.

Westinghouse TV Remote Volume Not Working

If you cannot change your TV’s volume with your Westinghouse TV Remote, it is both problematic and upsetting. Luckily, there are several easy solutions to resolve this issue, one of which is re-programming your Westinghouse Remote. Hopefully, one of these solutions will quickly fix your remote’s volume problem. 

If the Westinghouse Remote is not working and is not changing volume, this could be a problem with the Mute function being enabled.  Press the Sound Level Buttons Key on the Westinghouse TV Remote. Then press on the Mute and Unmute Buttons to make sure the Mute function is not enabled. 

Then, use the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons to adjust the sound level.

Westinghouse TV Remote Not Connecting

If your Westinghouse TV Remote is not connecting with and not detecting your Westinghouse TV, you probably need to sync both of them again.  This can be quickly done and should quickly solve the problem.

If the Westinghouse TV Remote is not working and not connecting/won’t pair, take the Westinghouse TV Remote and aim it directly at your TV. Then press down on Rewind and Fast Forward together. Now you should see a message indicating that the Westinghouse TV Remote pairs with your TV.

You can also try pressing the Mode button and the Enter Button at the same time. Hold them both down for about 1 second and then let them both go. At this point, all of the Mode buttons on your Westinghouse TV Remote should be flashing two times, which is an indication that you have activated Programming Mode so that you can then sync the Westinghouse Remote and your Westinghouse TV.

Westinghouse TV Remote Power Button not Working

If you have a Westinghouse Remote that either will not turn on or won’t turn off, it is usually due to a low charge of the batteries in the remote or to a problem with your Westinghouse TV. You can troubleshoot both possible causes to try to determine the reason for the problem and rapidly find a solution.

If your Westinghouse TV Remote is not working and the power button is not working, check to make sure the batteries in the remote are fully charged. Replace them as needed and then unplug and re-plug the TV power cord to reset the TV. 

Then, check to make sure the remote is in TV mode and try using the Remote again to see if it will turn on and off normally.

Westinghouse TV Remote Sensor not Working

Your Westinghouse TV Remote produces an infrared light signal that is received by your Westinghouse TV. If this infrared light is not being produced, your Westinghouse TV Remote will not be able to operate normally in order to control the TV. 

If your Westinghouse TV Remote is not working and neither is the Westinghouse Remote’s Sensor, turn off your Westinghouse TV’s power for about thirty seconds. Then hold the Westinghouse TV Remote’s Power Button for thirty seconds and then release it. Now reconnect the Westinghouse TV’s power source and see if the Westinghouse TV Remote is working again.

You can also test to see if your Westinghouse TV Remote is sending an infrared signal by using either a camera or your smartphone. Turn the camera on and then aim your Westinghouse TV Remote at the camera screen.  Press any button on the remote and hold it for several seconds. Then determine if you can see the infrared light when any button on your Westinghouse TV Remote is pressed on.
