Do I need to remove the large cover from the back of the TV to access the infared eye, or does the thin silver cover,( housing), for the infared eye, channel, and volume controls snap or pop off? That would seem to be the easiest access point. Thank you
I F sensor went out on mine. Apparently the unit is about ten bucks, but labor is $60 and house call is $65. Can this be done by an ordinary guy with a bit of skills and if so where can the part and instructions be found? JD

Re: need to replace infared eye on 36AF41 Toshiba TV
Yes, the back needs to be removed and the main board slides out to gain access to the IR sensor. Usually, the sensor itself is fine, the connections can get broken. Try resoldering the 3 pins for the sensor first. That alone may resolve the problem.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If you can get the part, you will need to strip the printer top housing cover (possibly remove the shell totally) to access the print head control strip. To be honest, I think you will find that the cost of the part will outweigh the cost of simply replacing the printer though
Have you tried removing the internal battery, from the mother board?
It should be located under one of the access panels, on the bottom.
Probably near the memory slots.
Power off your computer, unplug it and remove the battery.
Then remove the access panel. Usually, a couple of screws.
You'll find what appears to be a large diameter 'watch-battery' in a housing.
Remove the battery. There may be some tape across the back, and a thin non-metallic tool may be used to gently pry it out.
Leave it out for a minute or two, then place it back in.
Reassemble everything - Reverse of dis-assembly.
Power it up, and see if that works.
It's always worked for me!
First of all, you should check and ensure the infared beam is emiting from the remote control. Though we cant see this infared beam with bare eyes, i found a trick to do so in http://www.unique-stuff.co.cc/fixing_remote_control_check_infrared.html
The tv has a infared remote eye located at the front panel. It is possible that the remote eye sensor has gone bad. You could try cleaning the remote eye lens. There might be debris that got inside the remote eye housing and is blocking the sensor. You could also try installing fresh batteries in the remote.
First take the speaker cover off the front by working it from the top of the cover on both sides with your fingers. It should snap out top first. Then unplug the cable that connects from the main board to the cover. After that take out the 2 screws from the bottom of the front silver cover. them you take off the silver housing on the front by pushing it towards the top from the bottom. do not pull out on it. It seemed easy if i applied the pressure using my thumbs while holding on to the black parts with my fingers.
Again. the silver front slides up about 1/2 inch and falls off. don't pull out on it.
After that take out the 4 screws that hold the screen into place.
The screen then needs to be pulled gently from its housing. Around the screen there is a metal house that holds it in. The metal houseing does nt come out. The screen needs to be gently worked out of it. I started with one corner and the rest came easily.
Pull it out slowly to make sure you don't put strain on any wires.
Hope that helps.
You can order from Fellowes or a dealer like myself. Maybe the unit is all jammed up with shreds in the housing. Try taking the top off and cleaning it throughly. Be careful with the short ribbon cabl.
These unit are notorious for bad solder joints in the tuner unit. If you unplug the tv and remove the large PC board, flip ot over and you will see a large silver oblong with 3 solder points. de-solder theses and removed the cover from the tuner. Re-solder the connections along each of the sides of the oblong shaped case.and you will also see some ground pins which also need re-soldering. put the cover back on and you should be good to go.
As always, exercise caution , Televisions can hold a charge on some of the capacitors for quite a time and can shock you even after it has been unplugged for a few mins
The eye on the laptops are soldered into place. You would need to take the cover off to have access to it and of course find a replacement part. I am sure you can locate one on the internet if you do not live in a city with a large electronic supply house that caters to computer parts. Good luck.
Sounds like you have a blockage to the main jet. If you have a
compressor just blow the jet out from the top and with a bit of luck it
will clear it. If not you may need to remove the outer covering and
find the pipe to the main jet and again using compressed air just blow
it out. Usually not much goes wrong with these apart from blockages
every now and then and most of the servicing places just blow them out
with compressed air. Just make sure if you remove a pipe you tighten
the pipe up properly when re-fitting it. Hope this helps
I found the location to get at the lamp. If you are loking at the front of the TV there is a small panel at the bottom of the right end. Two screws, remove panel, two screws inside and a small handle that lifts so you can slide the unit out. 4 screws on top of the cage that the lamp sits in, carefully slide up the silver bracket holding the bulb, be careful the edges are sharp. Remove the bulb from bracket and remove the 2 cables attached to the bulb. Now just do the same but in reverse. Make sure you wear plastic gloves that should be provided because if your fingers touch the lense you could be out the price of the lamp.
