Remote partially working


While trying my projector, in dark room, I found out that some buttons on the remote are not working. I’ve tried to change batteries but issue is still here.

When I press these buttons, the upper LED is blinking 5 times and action is performed on projector:

  • LEFT
  • UP
  • OK
  • MENU
  • BACK
  • VOLUME +

In addition, I’ve also checked with my phone camera, the IR LED is on with above buttons.

When I press these buttons, no LED blinking and no action on the projector:

  • DOWN
  • HOME
  • VOLUME -

With my phone camera, IR LED is not lighting

Because of “VOLUME -” button not working, i’m not able to pair the remote.

Is it a know issue on some remotes? How to get a new remote?





Is there anybody from Philips able to help me change the remote?



If you don’t have a ticket already, please open one by sending an email to with your issue, you can copy and paste the first post into your email.

Hi @theoborie additionally, I would like to know if you’ve paired the remote with your projector using Bluetooth? If yes, do the buttons still not function after pairing?

Is there another way to pair the AirMote?

Unfortunately no. In this case please contact Support and ask for a replacement remote control. You won’t need to send back the whole projector.

Hi Philips,

My remote is not working suddenly now. I changed the battery but it still doesnt work. No cursor and no movement. I tried the touchpad on the ppm and it moves so i think its the remote issue.

How do i go about for this situation?

Same pb for me with the remote:

No possible to pair by bluetooth: the remote is not reconized

It only works for focus and off mode. Nothing else.

what can i do ? Change the remote?

Mine doesn’t do anything anymore, three weeks after I received the projector and everthing worked fine.

I wrote to support on September 1st, got no answer, wrote again and again, in October I got a mail to look for help here in the forum! :frowning:

Of course I had done that before and tried all I could find here (take out batteries for longer than 30 seconds, check with smartphone camera, hold certain buttons together for a few seconds, replace batteries).
Nothing helped, it is just plain broken.
If you tried, you know the projector is near to useless without the remote, so I am very disappointed by Philips and their support.


Hi Rabe,
Thank you for sharing your bad experience. I will try to contact the support. Where can i get in touch with them? I agree, it’s nearly impossible to use the device without remote. What a shame. I’m so disapointed.

Thank you!
The address they promote is

I have the same problem, the only thing the remote is good for is to turn the projector on and off. I will write to the customer care. I tried everything else.
