TV won't respond to ANY remote control

I have two universal remote controls that have, up till now, allowed me to control this tv just fine. Suddenly the other day, neither of these remotes will cause any kind of response from the we replaced the batteries in both and even tried reprogramming both remotes to no avail. It's as though my tv has gone blind and can't see anything coming from my remotes. Any idea's? Thanks!

SOURCE: TV won't respond to ANY remote control

Eagle 57 had the answer, your TV's are blind. The remote control sensing circuit in the TV is faulty. No remote will control it anymore.

Toshiba 32a14 does not respond to remote control

There is a infrared light sensor inside the TV which detects the infrared rays emitted from the remote control, when we press each button on the remote control. If this sensor has got damaged, the set won't respond to any remote control handset. The sensor can be located just behind the infrared sensor window at the front panel of the TV. To access it, you have to open the TV. It is a three terminal component, will be soldered diretily to front panel circuit board, of with the main baord itslef. Will look somewhat brownish black in colour. There are so many types can be seen . Just look what type if fitted with your TV.

TV doesn't respond to remote controller suddenly. I changed batteries of the controller and checked it. The controller is not a problem. I tried manual buttons on TV but it didn't work. TV turns on and...

This is caused by radio frequency and what i mean by that isyour tv unit is gettng confused with the crystals that control the connection between the tv and remote.The solution to this is to go to wal mart and buy a new universal remote and in the package should be an instruction manual to set the remote to the tv , First find your tv name in the pamplet,second there will show a code of the remote type it in and enjoy.

The Emerson TV won't respond to the remote

If the Duraband doesn't work the Philips remote below worked on mine. If it doesn't then it probably is the sensor. I just purchased one of these televisions and it didn't come with a remote. However, a Philips Universal Remote (SRU2103/27)
with a code 0520 works fine. I haven't explored all the codes but I can easily change from tv stations to Video 1 and Video 2 merely by pressing the "Input" button on the remote.

Remote does not work for TV

I assume you had new batteries in the original remote and that the Universal remote was programmed correctly for your TV.

Are there any lights on the old remote that flash when you press a button? If so, does it light?

If the TV doesn't respond to a remote, and the remote is verified to be in working order, then the infrared sensor in the TV is defective amd needs replaced.

Good Luck,

If you can use the universal remote to turn the set on and off then your TV is fine. Universal remotes won't control all aspects of the TV.
