    Our telly occasionally will not turn on with it's remote ( new batteries fitted )

    If we use the DVD recorder remote it will turn on telly select channels OK,
    but TV remote will still not work.

    Switching off & on at the mains the remote returns to normal function,

    No problem with Television and sound as normal.

    Anybody with any idea what’s happening , thanks

    Do you have trouble Turning it off with the remote too?
    Can you turn the tv on with one of the channel buttons?

    if so it’s probably the power button on the remote. Just buy a replacement remote.

    I'd go for a new remote as a first stab just to rule it out, remote control's these days are rubbish. I'm on my 3rd genuine Sony remote control, though it's usually my clumsy kids who are forever dropping them on wooden floors to blame but they only cost about £8 - gives you an idea of the quality they must be! ebay or amazon will usually serve you OK.

    Yes, I know. That is what you said!!!
    I asked if sometimes you also couldn’t turn it OFF.
