Support Projectors Other Projectors Epson MegaPlex MG-50

The remote control doesn't work. What should I do?

  • Check the following:

    • Make sure you're within about 20 feet (6 m) of the projector, and the remote control is aimed at the projectors front or back sensor within the ranges shown below.
    • You may need to replace the remote control batteries. Press the  illumination button and check if the Playback and Volume buttons glow. If they don't, replace the batteries. See Installing Batteries in the Remote Control.
    • Dim the room lights and turn off any fluorescent lights. Make sure the projector is not in direct sunlight.
    • Turn off nearby equipment that emits infrared energy, such as a radiant room heater.
    • Make sure there are no objects between the remote control and the IR receiver.
