Panasonic CT34wx54 TV remote SENSOR not working.

The remote sensor in our 3 yr old TV has stopped functioning. It is not the remote control itself, but the sensor in the television. What part would need to be replaced and how easy is this to do myself?

Buy a 21 way scart.This will have an 'AV' enable connection built in. After fitting, turn on the TV, then turn on the DVD player. It will automatically enable the DVD through the scart socket.

Sylvania TV Remote Control System Is In Operative

If your new Sylvania remote is functionally identical to the old one and does not work, make sure nothing is blocking the path between the remote and your TV and try again. If no results, the IR detector in the TV may have failed

I have a Panasonic CT-30WX54. All of a sudden it stopped responding to the remote. I can only control it by the front panel buttons. My other cable remote that used to control it is also no longer working...

You answer to the fuse thing is NO.

what is the issue here? well its the control board that holds the IR sensor that has failed OR

The lens is so dirty that the infra red is not passing threw it so try to clean off the lens with some rubbing alcahol. If that does not work then your going to need to have the tv repaired a control board is upwards of $70 bucks with your labor.

I hope this does help please do not forget to rate and leave feedback.

My 15 yr old panasonic tv turns itself on and off, why?

My thoughts is that after all these years one of the solder joints has cracked and there is enough current that builds up that it will jump accross the crack and work for a short time and then the componenet heats back up and 'well' off it goes.
15 years old. - you got some great use out of this TV.
Maybe time to look to get a new one - These types of TV's were only designed to work for 10 year and then throw them away. Be aware that the new ones are only made to last 3 to 4 years. I know - I don't like it either. They cost a lot more than that Panasonic did when it was new.

Remote Control won't work with TV

Nothing was wrong with the remote in the first place! The problem is in the TV. Some use a sensor that sees the Infra-Red light from your remote, others use an IR phototransistor. The signal then goes to a controller that performs the required function. Check the IR sensor on the front of your TV first. You can confirm operation of your IR remote by pointing it at a camcorder with night-shot and pressing the button.
