Remote turns off tv, but won't turn it on.

This is such a strange problem to have. Everything works on the remote (volume, input,channels, voice, guide, etc) except for turning on the TV. It turns off the TV just fine. When I press power to turn it on, the red "off" light on my TV blinks like 10 times and then never turns the TV on. Any suggestions?

Try a different code?
Check if it does the same thing with the actual tv remote

Re: Remote turns off tv, but won't turn it on.

The regular remote turns on the TV just fine. I just tried the xfinity remote again just to see and it turned on the TV. I'm not sure how that's possible when it hasn't worked for weeks, since the xfinity tech was here. Oh well, I'm not complaining.
