TV remote quit working

My Symphonic WF2703 TV remote began working sporadically, then quit altogether; remote control is working for other components, just won't control TV at all. I isolated circuit RCV101, removed a small IR receiver transistor 342D0017, took it to my local TV repair place, they said they couldn't help. Got any ideas?

Here is my blog how to repair remote controls:

Here is my blog on the subject how to repair remote controls

To dignose if your remote control is faulty just point your digital camera towards your remote and push the buttons.
If your remote works you should see light flashing on the LCD view finder of your camera.

Repairing the remotes can be succesful about 90% of the time unless the remote has been chewed by the family dog ?

My original remote is not working. I bought a universal remote and it doesn't work either. Can't get a remote to work on the tv

The remote sensor inside the circuit board of your TV is faulty. It is the component that receives the infrared signals of the remote control. If this component go faulty, no remote control will go with the TV. This component can be located on the front panel board of the TV just behind the infrared sensor window at the front. You have to open your TV to locate this component. It is a three terminal component, look brownish black in colour. The sample picture of it has attached here. It is very cheap to buy, and can be bought from most of the electronic sparepart shops at your town. If you have a concept of soldering and resoldering, you can replace this component yourself at home OK.

I have model# WF2703. Remotes do not work, or only sometimes.

An easy way to test for output on the remote controllers is to point them at a camera from a mobile phone. If you watch the camera picture whilst pressing buttons, the LED's will flash and show you the output. If you have dodgey buttons, it will show up as no LED flash.
Hope that helps to decide where your fault is.

I have a Symphonic ST413B

I thought this was a free website. It sounded like it. I didn't pay much for the TV, so if I have to pay to know where to get a remote control, I can just go out and get a new one and it won't be Symphonic. Thanks,...
