    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.

How can I repair/replace the remote "receiver" on tv for my 2004 Mitsubishi ws-48315 projection hdtv

This is a V24 chassis circa 2003/2004

First check the connections at your IR-receiver pcb. I was not able to ascertain a part# for this pcb, as the unit is over 10years old. There is,however, a part# printed on that pcb & you may be able to google that & locate the IR-pcb (that is your infra-red receiver printed circuit board)

try unplugging the connector on the IR pcb & plug back in both on the IR pcb (connector AN) & on the signal PCB(connector RF). you could have faulty wiring on either pcb or on the connect contacts.

My remote no longer works with my tv. I think its the ir sensor but I don't know what it looks like to replace it. I have another tv of the same model for parts and need to know what the ir sensor...

You can confirm your remote's IR output by pointing to the phone camera and if the remote works it will be seen as a flash on the camera. Now after confirming the remote then the the IR detector on teh TV can be checked. It is always mounted on the FRONT panel and is a small DIODE mounted to face the IR panel ****. It is easily seen and can be checked using a multimeter . In the Ohmn's range in one direction a flash of light will increase the flow and continuity when the probes are held across the diode. If teh IR is good then it is a fault on the processor controller.

What is the AV Net code for a PS3? Will it connect with my Hitachi 60V500A to Input 2 if I have the proper code?

AV Net is for controlling devices with your Hitachi remote. Your PS3 does not use standard IR or RF technologies for it's control, and uses Bluetooth instead.There is a Logitech Harmony adapter that will allow Harmony remotes to control the PS3 however it won't work with AV Net.

Your PS3 should hook up to your TV via Input 2 with no codes needed.

My verizon fios remote control stop to control the 65" cinema series toshiba tv.the remote seems to be ok.The oryginal tv remote doesnt control it also.I think that there is something wron with the tv...

Yes, most likely the sensor is at fault - more precisely it's connections to the motherboard are iffy. You must take the back cover off the tv and reseat them. While you are there check their soldering points - with age they tend to melt and get loose.

My TV is behaving as if it's somehow emitting some interference which stops my panasonic DVD recorder's remote control fo operating.

Hi, Try to move your DVD player in a angle so that the IR reception shows away from your tv. Try to funnel a peace of paper over the IR recepter to avoid the TV ir. This is the frist time I here of something like this. Hope it works

I have Toshiba, model #50HDX82, remote will not work

Since it is done with infrared transmitters and receivers, one can't tell by looking if the remote or its mate is at fault,
If you are fortunate enough to have a surviving service shop in your area, call them and ask if they have a tester for these. The tester is primitive and cannot tell if the output pulses are correct but can at least determine if any signal is being sent to your set. If the test proves OK. then the receiver end has failed and, unless the IR receive is on a separate board (some are), you will have to call in a service tech and pay the freight for a repair.
On some sets, peering in the rear with the back panel removed, one can see if there is a small board behind the IR window of the set. If you see this, you should be able to order a new assembly from the factory service people.
If the remote proves bad, you can get most original remotes from:

Uverse standard remote control stops working at night

The remote stops working the Uverse box or the TV or both?
Try putting the Uverse box behind the plane of the TV screen so the I.R. that the TV emits doesn't get to the front of the Uverse box.

Set top box and remote control

I have the same problem. When I move the 8300HDC away from the TV, or power off the TV, the remote responds. There seems to be some kind of RF interference, which makes no sense since the TV shouldn't emit RF, and the the box should be using IR only for remote input. My TV is a 46" LCD Samsung. Try turning off the TV and see if the 8300HDC responds to powering on and off with the remote.
