redd, is the model no of your AC, Sharp AH-XP13LV?I too face the same problem with my ac remote[sharp].Cant see what the lcd screen in the remote indicates in the dark.
I am in look out for that AC too for my friend, how much did you get it for? Here the AH-XP13NRV is available but the AH-XP13LV model is superior. I believe installation unit came free, care to post some pictures?
Thanks in advance.
Every time you press any button of the remote, the IDU should responds with a beep. If the IDU have responded to your remote control command with a beep, this means it has received your command and will execute the same.Sometimes the indoor unit fails to recognise the remote signals when i press the remote to change the temp
In auto mode you will not be able to set temperature, the micro computer will decide the optimum levels. The best one can do is +/- 2 degrees. Hope it helps.This is where i get confused as to at what temparature the unit is running.
