Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television
My TV no longer has a power button that can manually be pressed (button simply fell off, unsure of the cause of that), and I've had to use the remote to power it on and off for the past year.
Three weeks ago the remote became increasingly unresponsive and took upwards of 100 presses to power up the TV. I assumed this was a problem with the IR sensor on the TV and took it in for repairs.
Repairs cost me $170 and I got the TV back two days ago. They didn't replace the power button on the TV, but it seemed like the remote was once again working. That is, until this morning, when it suddenly is again completely unresponsive.
Power supply looks alright, fuses are all intact. I had a convergence issue, where I had to keep readjusting every few times I turned the TV on, but I'm assuming this is unrelated. Really I want to know what the problem could be. As far as I know, the IR sensor has been replaced. As I said before, my TV was working for two days after repairs and now is again unresponsive. I don't believe it's the remote, as I've tried three different ones (one that came with the TV and two universals which were programmed to it) and I keep getting the same results. The light won't power on or anything. It's as if the set is completely dead.
The remote button has change resistance... its a carbon film resistor on board.. cleaning
