Sony TV problem--not recognizing remote.

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.

Bravura not recognizing an Apple TV signal


You need to connect using an hdmi cable from the appletv to the tv, and notice which hdmi socket on the tv you use (eg 1 or 2 or 3...) Then make sure the light is on green on your apple tv by using the supplied remote control to power it up. And then you need to make sure you have chosen the correct hdmi source on your tv remote control (eg hdmi1 or 2 or 3...).

Remote control not recognizing codes


Codes for many of our TVs can be found at InsigniaProducts.com. For the Blu-ray player, we recommend using your universal remote's scan or learning feature.

Your remote might be using the wrong "infrared code", so the recorder when in service mode cannot understand it. Sony offers a feature that allows their recorders to operate under three different remote control signals, so if you own more than one Sony the remotes will not interfere with each other. The standard remote code the recorder is set to when new is "3". If by some chance you changed that code yourself, or the store changed it, then your remote is not sending signals that "service mode" can recognize.

You will need to change the remote's control code to "3" before the recorder will recognize it while in service mode. To change the remote code, take the remote to another room away from the recorder. Hold down the enter button, then press the 3 button. Hold both buttons down for 7 seconds, then release. Try the remote on the recorder: it should now be recognized and able to operate the service menu. Upon exiting service mode, the recorder may revert back to whatever code was last set, and the "3" codes that worked in service mode may not work in normal recorder mode. If it does not, do the same as before: try changing the remote control from "3" to "2" or "1".

Sylvania tv has stopped recognizing commands from remote.


Use some windex on the pickup on the front of the tv. It's a little dark spot, either round or square that picks up the signal from the remote.
