Remote keeps blinking

[ Edited ]

My remote had some worn out buttons, so I went down to the Comcast office for a new one.  A week later now, and the new remote is messing up.  Not all buttons work, and I get a bunch of flashes on the mode button.

 

For example, I press the volume button and it works, but TV mode button flashes five times.

 

Anything I press in Cable mode does nothing, and the Cable button flashes seven times.

Re: Remote keeps blinking

Try the simple remote reset.  If that doesn't work call 1-800-COMCAST.  Multiple flashes usually don't occur unless you're trying to set up some function on the remote.

Re: Remote keeps blinking

When I hold the setup button, I get one long flash and then five short flashes.

Re: Remote keeps blinking

If I were you I'd just swap the remote for a new one.
