Re: Remote stopped working after software update

Hi John, 

Thanks for your prompt response.

1. The model and serial numbers have been provided in my post. Kindly check.

2. The procedure you provide require a working remote, my both remotes are not working. The Roku stick only has one power button.  May you please advise how to perform your instruction?

Re: Remote PARTIALLY stopped working after software update: Roku TV remote LC-RCRUS-18

REMOTE # LC-RCRUS-18 It is original to the Roku Tv. This is not a remote with microphone, and it is a step above a simple remote. Roku is in the tv, is not an external device. As of ~ 3 wks ago, the remote will no longer power on/off, it will not mute volume, it will not page up/down in the guide, etc. It now mostly only adjusts volume up/down, pulls up the guide then single line up by line up/down in the guide. I have read all the posts for this thread and the recommended steps to take. Nothing has helped. Roku Tv/Sharp tv model LC-32LB591U Hardware id 5232x s/n 2N008T631106 S/W VER 12.5.0, BUILD 4176-34 DEVICE ID CHP748631106

Re: Remote PARTIALLY stopped working after software update: Roku TV remote LC-RCRUS-18

7484,

Sounds like your Sharp TV problems are similar to mine.

My TCL IR remote magically started working again on 12.5.0 4176-30 but only after I had the TV running for several hours of just using the Android app. It's almost as though some background process gets broken in this firmware and it finally just manages to start working again after a very long time. 

So far it's been working now for almost a week without showing signs of going back to failure. At first it would work for a few button presses and then just stop completely. But I could tell that the IR window board was at least somewhat functional because the activity LED was flashing if I'd switch to the Android app for control.
