Question about Televison & Video
I have the same problem. Sensor doesn't work. Tried new batteries, cleaned the lens and a brand new universal remote. I took the remote to a TV repair shop to find out that the remote works. I'd have to replace the infrared receiver $75-$100. It's a Toshiba 13" with VCR, model MV13M2/W, 2002. I'd rather invest $100 in a new TV, but I'd prefer to get by with a cheaper fix. Is there possible?
Call Andrews Electronics and give the make, model number, and the circuuit board location (label printed in PCB next to IRreceiver). To check if your remote is transnmitting, point it a digital camera (cell phone camera will work just fine) and look at the screen on the camera while you press the buttons on the remote. The infrared light will appear as white on you camera display.

For that size TV we would charge about $115.00, if we did the work. With very little know how, you could do it yourself for way less than that.
