The Ruko remote may not be able to control the volume of your TV because of the wrong configuration or hardware failure. Sometimes we can see the volume bar, but it is ineffective, or the TV does not show any response.
There may be more than one reason for its failure, such as:
- Batteries can be dead or unable to provide enough current.
- Outdated firmware of the Ruko device could be the reason.
- There may be a hardware failure in the remote and TV devices.
- Corrupt firmware of the Ruko device.
If the volume button on your Roku remote is not working, there are a few things you can try to fix the issue.
To resolve these Ruko remote issues, you need to take the following steps:
Check the Ruko device or the TV:
First, you must check, “Either your remote or TV is working fine or not.”
If the TV or remote is broken, you can have the current remote-control issue. The first step is to check that the TV and remote are in good working order. Before continuing, remember that you might need to utilize a universal remote or the Roku device’s mobile app to carry out the techniques below. To access the Roku device settings, you need to click the home button twice on some models.
Step-1: Open the mobile camera and point it to the IR of your remote.
Step-2: Now, push the volume up or down button on the remote to see if the light emanating from the IR unit of the remote (apart from remotes that use Wi-Fi) is visible in the phone’s camera. If not, the remote either has a hardware issue or the batteries are bad. You can also press other buttons on the remote control to see if the beam’s intensity changes. If so, the remote’s batteries are probably dead, and you could need a fresh set to fix the problem. A remote control button may be trapped, pushed, or short-circuited if a steady IR beam is seen in the phone’s camera.
Step-3: If the remote functioned properly in the previous step, see if the TV can be controlled by another remote (such as the one that came with the TV). If not, the problem is most likely with the TV’s IR unit, so you should get it checked for hardware issues.
Change the Batteries
If your Roku remote’s volume isn’t working, like we indicated earlier, you must change the batteries. Check to see whether you have a new pair of AA batteries before trying to use the volume rocker on the Remote.
Clean your Volume Buttons
The volume buttons may be dusty if you’ve owned the remote for a while. Make sure your Roku remote’s volume and other buttons are free of any lint or filth that could prevent them from functioning. To clean the remote and controls, use a gentle cleaner, such as wet wipes. A paperclip can also be required to remove the residue from the confined spaces between the buttons.
After cleaning the remote, check to ensure no buttons are stuck and see if the volume starts to function.
Repair your remote with your Ruko device:
If your Roku remote isn’t working, don’t worry! You can easily fix it with your Roku device.
If neither of those solutions work, you can try connecting your Roku device to a different TV. This will help you determine if the problem is with your remote or with your TV.
