    I apologize. the model is Mitsubishi projection tv WS-55813.

    Thank you for your response. I found the above reference in the manual. Unfortunately, as I read it, this reference describes how to find the sensor on other pieces of equipment, rather than the TV. It refers to controlling devices via the NetCommand remote furnished with the tv rather than the sensor on the tv. Someone else suggested that with Mitsubishi projection tvs the whole screen is a sensor. Have you heard this as well? If so, is there an alternative to sticking the IR emitter on the screen??

    Based on the instructions of the owner's manual for a Mitsubishi WS-55813:
    "The remote control sensor is usually behind the plastic window of the front display panel. It is sometimes visible when you look through the display plastic using a flashlight and is normally a round or square cutout behind the plastic. If you cannot see the sensor and the device’s Owner’s Guide does not specify the location, you can find it by using the device’s remote control. Hold the remote about 1/2 inch from the front of the device. Starting from one end of the display window plastic, press the POWER button."

    Receive the additional information. Perhaps unknown to you, the rating you gave me just brought my ranking down. Normally, this would discourage further exchange, but as said, perhaps unknown to you....

    What threw the response off:


    • I want to hook up an ir emiter to the front panel - ir emitter is an add on. All modern TVs including yours have an existing IR receiver not an emitter;

    • to go with my RF based remote - RF based remote would be an add on. Most but not all current TVs uses IR, infrared;

    • Can you tell me exactly where it is? - indicates that
    Reading your 3rd post indicates that:


    • you need to locate the existing IR receiver on the front of the Mitsubishi WS-55813;

    • if yes, then it would be at the back of the front panel controls looking forward and would look something like the image below.

    Good luck.

My bush Tv remote turns hifi even when it is not pointing at the Hi fi which is at the other end of the room


Most likely the remote control uses an RF control signal rather than an IR signal. IR signals are directional; RF signals are not - they are range-based.

I need the exact location of the IR sensor on the front panel of a Motorola DCH6416 cable box.


Do this like mine sweeping. Grab the remote and put it right up to the front of the box. Press the channel up or down keys as you move the remote across the front of the box. You'll get to a point where the box responds well. Then as you go past the point the box will stop reacting so well. Home in to the point where the box responds well. That's your point for the blaster.

Code for rc65x


http://www.ezremote.com/setupcodehelp/DTV2/dtv.html?product=DIRECTTVRC65SW2009

Is the top switch all the way to the left? What type of receiver? Receiver might be rf mode. Is the remote different from your original remote? Press 'menu' go to 'settings & help' or 'parental, favs, & setup' then 'settings' or 'setup', then remote control. Go 'advanced ...' and check ir/rf mode. If it is exactly RC65X then the receiver should be set to IR.

Remote won't work. Tried new batteries, reprogramming, etc. Universal Remote doesn't work either. LG #42PC5DC


Hi,
To confirmed if the remote control is working fine, aim the remote control sensor(IR emitter) directly to your cellphone camera. While pressing any button key on the remote control, you can see the flash of an infrared emitted by the remote control if it is working fine.


If you've confirmed that the remote control emitted an infrared but still the tv won't communicate with it, this is an indication of faulty IR sensor board of the TV. Check if there's an obstruction from the IR receiver in front. Keep away all of it, clean the plastic window of the IR receiver with soft clean cloth.
If the symptoms still persist, you have to replace the IR sensor board. Check the actual part no. of the board before ordering.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

The RC R0509 remote control does not respond to the receiver. I bought a universal remote and tried all the codes but still no responce.


people say that you have to tap on the receiver near the remote sensor. I don't know exactly where that is though since these are RF (radio frequency) not IR remotes, so there isn't a sensor panel in the front. I'd just tap along the front edge with the handle of a screwdriver or something. People say it works a treat.

I have a Direct TV box and just bought a Direct TV remote with RF antenna. I have attempted to program the remote to work in RF mode, but for some reason it's not accepting the programming. The remote...


Connect the supplied anttena on the reciever. Once you have done that, then:

1. dtv symbol device
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks
3. enter 9 6 1
4. press CH UP
5. enter the last 6 digits of the Receiver ID #, found on a sticker in the access card compartment
6. press SELECT

Now the receiver will accept both IR and RF, but the directv device on the RC32RF remote will only emit RF signals. The av1, av2, and tv are all still IR only.

URC-9910 remote: The RF part for this remote stopped working.


I have the same remote as yours and occasionally the RF remote is not working due the interference signal from outside or next door at certain hours.
My suggestions:
(1) To relocate the receiver and reposition the anntena for better reception of the RF signal from the remote unit.
(2) Replaced the battery.

Hope these help!
