Remote sensor not working

Thought the remote was broken, bought a new universal, works now and then. Discovered no remotes work with our tv. Looking for a solution to operate the tv channels without remote. We can change the channels but cannot get to "Game" to watch a dvd or play video games.

I had a similar problem ... As a last ditch effort I decided to open the back of the remote: 1. I removed the two top screws only (I have a torque screw set) and cleaned the sensor w/ a soft cloth ... 2: I then sprayed a can of air through the opening as I could ... re-aligned case and secured screws. It is now operational again. If this doesn't work check for capatible remotes.

Problem with remote control or TV sensor? (Sanyo lcd32xr8da)

From your detailed description, I assumes that the infrared sensor inside your TV has the fault. This part can be loacated just behind the infrared sensor window at the front panel of the TV. You have to open the TV, and desolder it out from position, note the type used, and repalce it. There are so many types of these. Pictures of some are attached here.

My Scott Remote Control #KC01-B1 one night just would not connect to the sensor in my tv. I thought my batteries were low and changed them. The remote would still not work. I went to a Radio Shack...

Before you throw any more money at this problem, have you considered that the problem might be with the Infra-red (IR) receiver in the TV?

Also, did you programme the correct codes for your Scott TV into the universal remote/s? If you can let me know the model number/s of the universal remote/s - and you still have them - I can probably verify the codes and the programming instructions.

Hope this helps.

Remote Stopped Working

It is possible the IR sensor is bad. Most of the time if it is a remote issue, the light on the remote will not light up. Does the remote that came with tv still control any functions? I would try the remote that came with the tv, and then go from there, but it sounds like your IR sensor has gone out on you.

Tv sensor not working ????

Press and hold down the up volume button on the original remote, look at the light (led) on the remote, the light should be lit and slightly pulsing. If no pulse your remote is bad, if you are seeing the pulse try cleaning the ir window on front of tv. Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star

Tv won't recognize remote codes

If the manufacturer of the universal remote cannot give you codes for the Symphonic you are out of luck. U will either have to get an original replacement or get a Harmony universal remote.

Cant find the code to program the RCR311W to run my Philips 19ps45s.

If you can return the remote, I'd pick up a harmony remote from Logitech (they all work fine). It doesn't use codes, just the model numbers of the device. They support 55,000 devices and I have never found a device that they won't control (sorry, I know this isn't the advice you were looking for, but this will make your life easier).

Remote randomly works. 27" Symphonic TV... but remote works on other Symphonics in the house

I would get a new remote control first. Just because it is the same brand doesn't mean the same reote codes are used.

My remote control does not work

You could have a defective IR sensor in the tv set that sends the infared signal to the MIcroprocessor IC. These are something you cant just replace, as it needs to be trouble shot with a scope to see if theres a data signal comming out of the sensor and if there is it could be a bad solder connection somewhere between the sensor plug to the Main IC. Also could be the B+ that supplys voltage to the sensor. Unless you have had electronic repoair experience, You should have a pro assist you with this repair. Sorry I couldnt assist you more with this . Good Luck
