Whenever the remote batteries start to die, the remote will blink to let you know. This light will not stop blinking until you either replace or recharge the batteries. Luckily, dead batteries are super easy to fix. No matter what, it’s a smart idea to check the batteries first when your remote is blinking.
Why is there a remote light on my camera?
And while our naked eyes can’t pick up on infrared light, the sensors in your phones and digital cameras can — essentially making the invisible visible. The cell phone camera is more sensitive to light than human eyes are, so it “sees” the infrared light that is invisible to us.
How do you check if a remote is working?
Look at the viewfinder or screen of your camera/camcorder or mobile phone. If the remote control sends a signal, you should see a light in the viewfinder or screen of your camera/camcorder or mobile phone when you press a button on the remote control.
Why is my TV not responding to the remote?
A remote control that will not respond or control your TV usually means low batteries. Make sure you are pointing the remote at the TV. There also may be something interfering with the signal such as other electronics, certain types of lighting, or something blocking the TV remote sensor.
How do I reset my one for all remote?

Can the remote sensor on a TV go bad?
A remote sensor that can no longer register the IR signal from the remote control is not necessarily defective, as there are a number of things that can cause it to not see the IR signal. You can fix a remote sensor that is not registering the IR signal using a few common household items.
How do I test a remote with a multimeter?
Set the multimeter so it measures DC voltage and turn it on. Hold the remote control close to the IR diode and push any button. If the remote control is working then the voltage shown on the display will quickly rise. When you release the button the voltage will drop again.
How do I fix an unresponsive remote?
Clean the remote control terminals. The remote control battery terminals may be dirty. Remove the batteries and clean the remote control terminals with a small solution of alcohol, using a cotton bud or soft cloth, then place the batteries back into the remote control. Replace with fresh batteries.
