To replace the sensor element, you have to open the TV and take out the circuit board that contains the sensor. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact the nearest service center.

    Can you tell me how to do this. I'm up to the task. The costs are too great to go to a service center. Robert

    The infrared sensor can be located at the front panel printed circuit board itself. You have to open the TV, and take out this printed circuit board to replace it. It is not a costly component, and can be bought from most of the electronic spare part shops at your town. It is a three solder terminal component, will look somewhat brownish black in color. Just visit this site. There is detail about its function.http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.co...

FAILURE OF REMOTE FUNCTION


The Sony remote may be working fine. You may have to test it on another Sony TV such as at Best Buy or at a friend's place. Some of the Sony TV's had a bad or defective infrared(IR) board. If the IR board fails, then the TV will not respond to the remote. The TV will work fine with the manual controls, but will not respond to the remote. If you are handy with taking apart computers, then taking out the IR board is not that hard. It looks like a computer memory or RAM board. One can buy a replacement board on the internet or send your bad IR board in for repair. I did just that last week by sending it to a repair service. I got the board back in less than a week and installed it. The Sony TV works fine with the remote now. I found the repair service on E-Bay. There was one in Indiana and one in California. I used the one in California. It all depends on the Sony model, but there appears to be a bunch of models with a defective IR board. Yes, it was really frustrating.

RM-GA014 remote can't switch Sony Bravia 46" tv on


Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the TV does not respond to the supplied remote control.
  1. Remove the batteries from the remote control.
  2. Press each button on the remote control twice.
  3. Make sure none of the remote control buttons are jammed.
  4. Install fresh batteries into the remote control. IMPORTANT: Make sure the batteries are inserted in the (+ and -) direction shown inside the battery compartment.
  5. Make sure nothing is blocking the Infrared (IR) sensor on the TV. IMPORTANT: Some locations can interfere with the IR signal from the remote control. Glass enclosures, as well as fluorescent or halogen lights, may prevent the IR signal from reaching the TV.
  6. Point the remote control at the IR sensor of the TV.
  7. Press the POWER button and other buttons to test TV operation. IMPORTANT: Do not hold down the POWER button too long. Doing so may prevent the remote control from operating the TV.
    NOTES:
    • If some of the remote control buttons operate the TV but others do not, the remote control may need replaced.
    • If all of the remote control buttons work, no further troubleshooting is required. Otherwise, continue troubleshooting below.
  8. Try using the remote control at varying distances from the TV. IMPORTANT: Using the remote control too close or too far away may prevent the IR signal from reaching the TV.
  9. Turn the Light Sensor setting to OFF.
    1. On the TV itself, press the HOME button on the TV.
    2. Using the up arrow or down arrow select Preferences.
    3. Press the INPUT button.
    4. Press the up arrow or down arrow to select ECO.
    5. Press the INPUT button.
    6. Use the up arrow or down arrow to select Light Sensor.
    7. Press the INPUT button.
    8. Press the up arrow or down arrow to select OFF.
    9. Press the INPUT button.
  10. Power reset the TV.
  11. Make sure the TV has the latest system software (firmware) update installed, if applicable.
The troubleshooting steps above should resolve the issue. If you completed all the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required or the remote control may need replaced. Contact the Customer Experience Center at (239) 768-7547 to speak with a service representative for further assistance.

I need to replace the infrared sensor unit for Vizio L37 HDTV.


Good day!!!

Before I answer your question let me clarify something..

  1. What sensor you need to replace is it on the remote IR (infrared) or the receiver on your TV?
  2. Did you try other remote control?
  3. How did you say that you need to replace the IR sensor or receiver on your TV?
To test the remote please use a digital camera..How? place the shot to infrared of your remote then look at the screen of your camera after that press any button on your remote and look if the IR sensor lights up..

Please answer all my clarifications for me to diagnose the exact problem..Because replacing of IR sensor on TV is difficult..

Thank you for using fixya and choosing my service..

Dish 20.0 IR Remote works for awhile then it


I MAY have a solution!! We too have the VIP722 Dish Network receiver. Ours is the "K" model. I called the place where we purchased the TV and they said that the "brightness" on the TV may need to be turned down. He walked me through this, and it worked. The remote WORKS now!! Our TV is a 40" Sony Bravia that we purchased a couple of months ago. Evidently at night, the TV was so bright in the room, it interfered with the Infared Remote control. By turning down "off" brightness detector on the TV, the IR remote was able to send the signal to the receiver. Our TV is on a cabinet and the receiver is directly underneath on a shelf. I hope this solves your problem and anyone else's that may have this problem with the remote.

Hey Bry,

Judging by the picture of your television on Sony's site: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=KF60WE610&LOC=3

The IR sensor is right below the Sony emblem. If you're really curious you can find a site that offers service manuals and order one. It will get you schematics and tell you exactly where everything is.

Also, if you get everything up and running and decide you need to replace your lamp, check out xl2100u-lamp.com. I haven't ordered from there yet, but it looks promising.
