TVonics set top box MDR240 remains in standby mode (red light)

Customer Question

TVonics set top box MDR240 remains in standby mode (red light) & not responding to remote. Changed batteries no change
Submitted: 2 years ago.
Category: Recorders and Players
Expert:  Pete replied 2 years ago.
Hello,

Either the remote is not emitting a signal, or the box is not receiving it correctly.
First, check that the remote is emitting a signal -
you can do this by viewing it on a digital screen (e.g. a mobile phone or a digital camera) as you press any button on the remote. You should be able to see a faint blue or violet glow on the screen as the buttons are pressed. If you do not, then the remote is not working and will need to be replaced.
If the IR signal is being emitted ok, then the fault is with the box itself.
