I believe it is called the magic hand set. If it was the TV i would be down the shops buying a new one!!!!!
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.

Hi LOL

Ok, you may need a new remote for this one. but please try this first.

Unplug your TV, and remove the batteries from the magic hand set for 30 full minutes. then replace the batteries, and then plug in the TV, you will need to go through all the programming again Initial programming that is.

If that works great!

If not please let me knwo and we will go further into this set;-)

Tried as you suggested for 45mins and then 2hours. Still not working.
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.

Hi thank you for trying that as a rest for me.

This TV requires service by a professional TV repair tech. There is a bad transistor on the main board responsible for this problem. It is a an easy cheap repair but it needs to be isolated as there are a few in this area of the main board. The other option, is to replace main board .

If you are electronically handy, I can help you do that.

I wish I had better news for you, I really do.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
