    My remote quit working on my ZenithD32D51 tv. We were mostly using the satellite remote to work the tv, but it no longer works on the tv either, though it still works on the satellite receiver. The buttons on the tv work fine.

    Toshiba and/or Comcast remote control no longer turns TV on/off and will not adjust volume. We have been using Comcast Universal Remote with this TV for several years. We have replaced the batteries and exchanged Comcast remotes. The problem seems to be with the sensor on the front of the TV set. Is this a possibility and how can it be repaired? The TV was purchased June 2001.

The buttons on the front of the Tv work means your tv has no problem. but when I use the remote it does not work problem in remote only. even bought a new remote is it same 7 IF YOUR ANSWER IS YES then as you said there is a problem in sensor circuit or loose contact there in system control ckt. good luck.

Tv remote wont work even though new batteries are put in.cannot change channels or volume or even turn the tv off or on

Try opening up the unit and cleaning the contacts and bottom of the buttons with a q-tip and a bit of rubbing alcohol. Over time the oil from your fingers gets inside and creates a film between the contacts and the button so the circuit will not complete and your buttons stop working.

My Mitsubishi projection TV will not produce audio or video

Two things are involved to cause that problem, tv remote control and remote sensor in tv.
Upon verification of remote working, it would be confirm that remote sensor in tv is defective and need to be replaced.
Remote control sends infra red light signal to tv and we can not see that light with naked-eye, so need digital camera or cell phone camera to see it by watching remote front through camera, press any keys on remote, if you see infra red light is blinking in remote front that means remote is working and remote sensor in tv will be replaced.
If no light blinking on pressing remote buttons confirm that this remote is defective and buy new remote.
Let me know if you have additional question.

Remote Sensor on TV Doesn't Work and Can't Manually Adjust Menu

I just realized that there is no usb port on this tv. Called tech support at vizio since I'm still under warranty. They're sending a new remote. I know it's not the remote because neither the verizon nor the vizio remote works, although the vizio remote will intermittently work if I'm one foot away from the sensor on the tv and holding the remote on a downward angle. Tech support says they will send a new remote to rule that out before they send a tech over. I'll check the posts to see if you find a solution when I finally get the tech guy out here. If not, I'll let you know what he does.

Good luck.

Remote will not function with TV

If two remotes do not work. I would say the IR sensor on the front panel of the TV might be defective.
Can you provide an exact TV model number to try to locate an IR sensor part suppier?
