Remote sensor on tv not responding to remotes. pioneer PDP-42A3HD

Have been using universal remote from cable co. to run digital cable box and tv for 2 years. Remote function on tv has been periodically not working last month. Cable guy came out and reprogrammed a different remote 3 weeks ago. Worked for a day-didn't work for 3 days-worked again for a few days and now doesn't. Cable guy came back and couldn't get digital cable remote or original tv remote to work. Says he thinks it's a sensor issue in tv. Have changed batteries in all remotes. Have had 3 different remotes in last month. All operate cable box fine but not tv. Can't get menu window or turn tv on/off or volume. Is this something that can be fixed on site? Anything I can try before calling service?

I also had this same problem. Both the original remote and my universal remote failed to give any response on the TV. Normally the green light flashes when it receives a command from the remote. Called LG Support and they made me an appointment with a local repair company for 3 days later. This seemed pretty quick compared to other companies repair times I'd read about. However next day the repair company called to say it would be 5 more days before they could get a Tech to my location (downtown ATL). 8 days was a long time to wait but once tech arrived he diagnosed it to a bad board and simply went to his truck and swapped it out with mine under factory warranty. Everything has been fine since.

SOURCE: Remote Sensor on TV Doesn't Work and Can't Manually Adjust Menu

I just realized that there is no usb port on this tv. Called tech support at vizio since I'm still under warranty. They're sending a new remote. I know it's not the remote because neither the verizon nor the vizio remote works, although the vizio remote will intermittently work if I'm one foot away from the sensor on the tv and holding the remote on a downward angle. Tech support says they will send a new remote to rule that out before they send a tech over. I'll check the posts to see if you find a solution when I finally get the tech guy out here. If not, I'll let you know what he does.

Good luck.

SOURCE: My Sharp Aquos TV has stopped responding to remote control(s)

Unplugging my TV for 15 seconds (longer actually - at least a minute) made the remote and the satellite TV remote both work again with the TV.  Thanks for the tip!

SOURCE: Cox Cable Remote wont program to my Sylvania LC320ss8 tv.

there are different codes for the devices that you are using. When you want to insert the code for the tv. > Switch tv on and then switch all the other devices off. Insert code. For digi box > switch on and all other devices off. Insert code for digibox. You must then switch between tv and digi box using the buttons on the top of the remote. Toggle between tv/ digi box.

Have a go with the codes below with the tv and the digibox both on, you never know you might get lucky as these are new codes, if not revert back to 1st solution.

Universal Codes (both should work using these, i think!!!!! try 'em)

002,
008,
155,
198,
227,
231

Here are the codes for the 1st solution.


Good Luck,

RCA universal nor cable remote will program RCA L40FHD41 TV


might be able to use the cable co remote and autosearch thru the codes, but its too hard to explain, the cable tech should have ran that procedure. unfortunately, rca has 50 million models. it is common to have a tv and yes rca for sure, to not take the codes. sometimes the tv is too new for the cable company remotes to work. i am leaning toward the tv too new theory. give it six months and i bet there will be a new remote version.

Pioneer 428xd tv remote control code wanted


if you have gone through all of the codes in the manual for pioneer, and they dont work, then your last option with that remote is to use the "code search" feature.

otherwise you're going to have to find a remote that will work for that unit, because its not exactly new :(

Have a new Phillips 42" lcd tv. my cable box remote has been working intermittently. However the white light near the remote sensor on the TV blinks whenever I use the cable remote. after changing bat


your TV and, your cable box both "see" a series of invisible (infared) flashes of light like morse code these flases tell them what to do.one answer is to: buy a universal remote so that you can program a button for each device then when you want to control the cable box just push the "cable" button and, then volume etc. to turn your tv off push "tv" then "off" the service man was right but he should have explained this to you
also your cable remote may be programable to work with your tv like a universal remote check with your cable co.
