Tip & How-To about Televison & Video
A digital camera can see the IR (Infra-red) light generated by your television or any IR remote!
point the remote (with good batteries) at the digital camera and press a button. If it is working you will be able to see the flashes on the digital camera screen.
In this way you will be able to track down the cause of your remote control problem by eliminating or confirming whether the remote is dead, or if the fault is that the receiving unit (TV, vcr, dvd, etc) is not receiving or the code is wrong.
