Re: IR pickup on the bottom of the screen cabinet

Yes the infrared sensor is located inside the set usually up front. You can tell its the IR because it will have a wire harness plugged into it. And a small sensor board maybe a small canister also. You may have to go in throu back, if you cant get in behind speaker cover.

My remote no longer works with my tv. I think its the ir sensor but I don't know what it looks like to replace it. I have another tv of the same model for parts and need to know what the ir sensor...

You can confirm your remote's IR output by pointing to the phone camera and if the remote works it will be seen as a flash on the camera. Now after confirming the remote then the the IR detector on teh TV can be checked. It is always mounted on the FRONT panel and is a small DIODE mounted to face the IR panel ****. It is easily seen and can be checked using a multimeter . In the Ohmn's range in one direction a flash of light will increase the flow and continuity when the probes are held across the diode. If teh IR is good then it is a fault on the processor controller.

Pioneer SD-582HD5 - screen went black, no sound, Poor remote feed

The blue tube might be leaking coolant in the high voltage area, that is the cause of the POP. This repair might not be a DIY because of the lethal high voltage surrounding the CRTs tubes.
The slow response from the remote could be because the coolant has affected the main board where the IR signal are going to the remote sensor.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Cabinet removal

Unfortunatly no there isnt. The tv bottom contains all the circuits, color guns, speakers. From where the bottom of the screen starts to the top is all part of the entire cabinet which is molded plastic. The top part contains a mirror and the screen you see as well as possibly a remote sensor. Short of sawing it in half and tossing it away you could take it apart but this would have to be done completely to gain you the most space and could be dangerous considering the high voltage transformer that the unit uses to power the color guns.

Remotes not working 2 orginal 2 universal

Sounds likes the IR pickup in your set has failed . Should not be that expensive to fix . Depending on who you take it to . If you have a model # and brand name you should be able to locate one . Soldering iron - solder - solder wick will be the required tools to replace . Good luck

65wp94 / broke glass

It's the display screen. The 65v glass mirror is inside the cabinet that reflects the image onto the screen. I think what you want is the front display screen....... and a leather belt.

There is an IR pickup on the bottom of the screen cabinet. It's most likely broken.
