Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

My Sony tv model kv27v42 will not recognize the remote control signal. I have ruled out the remote being the problem. I assume it has something to do with the remote sensor on the tv itself. I live in a very remote area where there are no repair shops. Is there a part I can order and install myself?

    At first I thought it was the remote, so I bought a universal remote and programmed in the appropriate numbers. No success. I foolishly assumed I had bought a defective universal remote and bought another. When this also did not work I tried programming it for the other devices (e.g. VCR, DVD) and it works fine. Hence my conclusion that the problem is in the TV, not the remote.

Is there another way to access my Sony Grand Wega 50

I would have the remote itself checked--every TV shop has a tester for this----rule it out first.

Either it is bad (shops do fix them) or the remote receiver in the set is at fault----reason to find out if the remote is good or not first.

Remote control No work

Try another remote control, if it is also not working that means remote sensor in tv got bad and become unable to receive remote signals, replace remote sensor in tv.
If other remote works then replace batteries in bad/ suspected remote and check.
Let me know model and brand of your tv if you have additional question.

Remote sensor in the TV

First Inspect the remote batteries. also make sure TV is not on a LOCK ON option... now, the sensor is a small smoothly part near the TV front buttons, you can clean it carefully FYI, exposing unit remote sensor to direct fluorescent or outdoor light may cause signal interference.
