01 Introduction to the ELITE Series Flat Panel TVs

1.2.2 Operating the Remote Control

The remote control for the ELITE Series panels is a powerful tool. This section provides a brief introduction to your remote control while later sections explore more advanced operations.

Insert the Batteries into the Remote Control

To open push and slide the battery cover in the direction of the arrows.

Load the supplied two AA size batteries by the negative polarity (–)ends first.

The batteries supplied with this product may have a shorter life expectancy due to storage conditions. If the remote control seems to be failing or is weak, replace the provided batteries with new alkaline batteries. Never mix old and new batteries. Mixing old and new batteries can shorten the life of new batteries or cause

chemical leaks in old batteries. Also, mixing different types or brands of batteries can cause issues as batteries brands have slightly different characteristics.

Note: If the flat panel TV’s remote control is not needed for an extended length of time, remove the batteries.

When disposing of used batteries, please comply with governmental regulations or environmental public institution’s rules that apply in your country/area.

Remote Control Issues

There are several issues that can affect your remote control but the most common problem is weak batteries. Weak batteries in the remote control can cause communication to fail or only operate sporadically. In this situation, try moving closer to the panel and attempt to control the panel with the remote. If the panel responds then change the batteries. If moving closer has no effect on the panel, check the surroundings for objects that might be blocking the signal. Also consider other equipment with remote controls that are in the area around the panel. Objects and other IR signals can disrupt the remote.
