Question about Panasonic TH-42XVS30U 42 in. Plasma HDTV
It seems the remote sensor on the TV has somehow partially failed. I have the Direct TV remote as well as the remote that came with the TV. Both have new batteries and the Direct TV remote works fine with the Direct TV DVR/Satallite box. However, when I go to increase/decrease volume, it stopped working for no reason. I thought it might be the remote itself so I used the actual Panasonic Remote and none of the functions from the remote to the TV worked. Just for kicks, I walked up to the TV and put the remote about 10 inches from the remote sensor on the TV and it worked. The same was true using the Direct TV remote. So my conclusion is the remote sensor on the TV has lost it's ability to sense the remote signal from more than 10 inches away. I turned the TV off and even unplugged it trying to "RESET" everything. It didn't work. Do you have any suggestions?
Take your tv and remote to a technician to check on your emitting diode and a photo senser, both are working but not very sensitive. the components are not gone but about to go. if you remove a senser from tv it can not receive, so that senser is sensing some thing, also check an amplifier just after a senser plse do that.
