Try resetting the remote. Press 'tv', hold down 'select' and red together ( LED blinks twice ), key 999 ( LED blinks twice ). Then re-input the code for your tv. Please also be aware that screen radiation, backlighting, energy-saving lightbulbs, digiboxes being in glass cabinets, and direct sunlight can affect remote performance.

OK. Try leaving the batteries out overnight. This will reset it anyway. Or if you've had it for less than a year, get onto Sky for a replacement.

Hi JTootill, as suggested it may need replaced depending on how often it happens. Often if an HD remote stops working taking one battery out and holding down select for 60 seconds before replacing the battery will fix it.

I'm not sure how taking one battery out and holding select for 60 secs works, but it did !! Why can't Sky tell us useful info like this...Happy Christmas !!

MALCOLM IS THE MAIN MAIN!
I HAVE NEVER WORTE ANY THING IN A FORUM, BUT FELT THE NEED TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT
GOD SHOULD BLESS MALCOLM.
I WOULD NEVER BELIVE IN A MILLION YEARS THAT TAKING ONE BATTERY OUT AND HOLDING SELECT FOR 60 SECONDS WOULD WORK.
BUT WORKED LIKE A DREAM. I WAS JUST ABOUT TO BUY A REMOTE FROM TESCO FOR £20.
MALCOLM, WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. YOU WILL BE REWARDED SOME HOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
THANKS A MILLION
