Remote won't control the cable box

[ Edited ]

Good evening,

 

We were watching TV tonight and had set a reminder to come on when the Oscars started. Now we cannot do anything with the cable box. We have a standard digital cable box and all the remote will do is power the digital box on and off. The remote does not work for anything else on the cable box. 

 

Thanks for any help you can provide to me.

Is the problem still happening? Have you tried powercycling the box?

All the remotes should work on any box.

If your remote will not work you can take into a store and they will swap it, and it will work on your box

My cable box will no longer turn on. I have only had it for 2 weeks and it worked fine last night. I tried to use it today and the remote is not turning the cable box on anymore. The box does not have an on-off button so I don't know what else to do

Have you pressed the video source button on your remote to make sure the cable button lights up?  On occasion the video source  on our remote has accidently been switched to VCR or DVD.
