There are no words to describe just how frustrating it is to sit down, all ready to watch your favorite TV show, and find that your remote control isn't working properly -- maybe it's just not working at all. Sure, you could exercise those leg muscles and get up every time you want to change the channel, but if you've bought a new TV within the past few years, you'll already know that many newer models don't come with buttons on the TV itself. If you don't have a working remote control, you're out of luck.
But before you start looking for a new Insignia remote control replacement, in order to watch your new Insignia TV, there are a few things to keep in mind regarding broken remotes. A company trying to make as much profit as possible will tell you to run out and buy an Insignia remote control replacement right away, but at Remotes.com, we want to make sure that your TV watching experience is as enjoyable as possible -- which is why we not only sell replacement remote controls but also feel you deserve to know a few other reasons why your TV remote may not be working properly:
The battery is dead. It's an oldie, but a goodie. These days, we're so accustomed to charging our electronic devices by plugging them in, that it's pretty common to forget that some devices still need AA or AAA batteries to work. Before looking for a replacement remote, make sure that there are fresh batteries in your old one.
The remote is too far away from the device, or there's interference. If there's interference from the remote signal -- which often happens when you're using a lot of electronic devices or if the device is placed too far away from the remote -- you won't be able to operate your TV properly. Make sure there's a clear path between your remote and the TV before thinking that the worst has happened!
You're using a universal remote control, and it isn't programmed properly. There's one major problem with universal remotes: there's no guarantee that they'll actually be universal and be programmable with your device. Quite simply, if you've purchased an Insignia TV and your remote breaks, you want to get an Insignia replacement remote control to ensure the best results.
So is your remote control actually dead? It's always best to make sure before you splurge on a new one!
