Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Sony Bravia 32" tv that works from the buttons on the side of tv only. It will not turn on from ANY remote (satellite, factory, universal) please don't ask if I have changed the batteries cause the obvious answer here is yes. I changed them in all the remotes. It used to work with factory & satellite remote but just stopped responding. Is it possible the IR sensor has gone bad? If so is this a separate part or is it part of a board? Have searched internet but found no answers.

Check the remote control for its infra-red emission first. If it is found OK, check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get more details, check this link. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic / Time slide, can be selected by the drop-down list, at the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name/model number/IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window. Details about how to check a remote control is given.

the sensor on the tv needs to be replaced or a component is bad but either way it will need to be tested to determine exactly what happen

SOURCE: The TV stopped receiving IR signals from remotes

make sure that your remote has a line of sight to the tv. often a small antenna is added to enhance reception. also check to be sure your remote batteries are aok.

Hi,
There could be many reasons like IR pins not soldered properly, it is not getting +B supply or IR output signal is blocked, buffer transistor on same board is bad etc etc
Replacement IR Board is available for $6 at Encompass.com so I would suggest to replace complete board instead of IR Sensor.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

SOURCE: I have a Sony Bravia

Welcome to the world of Sony **** Bravia and their **** customer service. You will find this is a HEAVILY reported problem and Sony will gladly ignore it and expect you to cough up $200 to trade out a 2 year old TV. Yes, it is the IR board. Yes, I will never buy another anything Sony.

If remotes have been ruled out the only way to test the remote infrared receiver is with the set apart/ and a schematic measure voltage at the receiver when the remote is used---most of the time since the part is rather small this is just replaced to see if it is or is not the problem; some receivers will fail where if the remote is held very close they work--always the receiver in that case.

Find the serial number on the tv - maybe on the back. Search online for that number. Or just buy a universal remote.

    How to control my cable box with the tv control


    hello!
    refer to your TVs owners manual. You will find codes for common set top boxes there. all the new TV remotes are universal. If you see "cable" or "cbl" button on remote, you will be able to do so. Worst case scenario: you need to buy universal remote or use your cable box's remote to control basic functions on TV. Codes for TVs are included with cable box's remote control. Or, you can call your provider and ask for "Sony Bravia"codes. If you have a satellite box, codes are supplied right inside "setup" menu of the box.
    Good luck,
    Alex.

    Can not change the channels on my Sony Bravia KDL-46V3000. The remote will turn the TV on and off but will not change the channel.


    Is this the original remote or a universal remote? Can you change the channel with the buttons on the right side of the TV?

    Can you type in a channel number and go to that channel? (this applies if the channel will not change with the buttons on the TV.) Try to rescan the channels (it could be that the TV has the other channels hidden (or lost the list).

    If it is a universal remote, you may not have the correct code (just a close one). Try additional codes for Sony TVs. Also when was the remote built? If it was programmed more than 6 months before the TV was released, then it will not have the correct codes. You would need a newer remote. A substitute remote can be obtained from https://servicesales.sel.sony.com/ecom/accessories/web/productSearch.do?sessionId=4q4-Cd8shqFs_c5rcVcD_Lw or http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=KDL-V32XBR1&uuid=12842263276080 .

    I hope this helps.

    How to do a complete factory reset of a Sony Bravia KDL-32P3000


    Just talked with Sony Support today.

    It seems that Sony in Denmark had sent out new software updates (over DVB-T) but also some wrong TV's got updated as well. This caused my DVB-T tuner to not function anymore so I wanted to try a factory reset and it fixed my problem.

    So I was instructed on how to do this. I have a Sony Bravia KDL-32P3000 (which should be similar to the U3000 and S3000 as well).

    This is how to do a factory reset of your Sony Bravia KDL-32 P/U/S-3000 TV.

    PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THE SERVICE MENU, YOU CAN EASILY CAUSE YOUR TV TO MAL-FUNCTION!!!! IF YOU FOLLOW THIS GUIDE IT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

    Set your TV in standy (use the green power butten on your remote), RED standby LED is ON on your TV.

    Now press these buttons in this order on your remote (pointing to the TV).
    i+
    5
    VOL UP (+)
    GREEN POWER button

    NOW BE CAREFUL! Dont press any keys just for the fun of it!!! IT MAY DESTROY YOUR TV.
    You should now be in the service menu. It will show up as some green letter/numbers spread over the screen (mine are a bit hard to see/a bit faded). In the upper right corner you should have 2 letters TT (two t's).

    Now carefully press key 0 and then key 8 on your remote (they should be shown on the screen after the two TT).

    Now wait a little while (more than 10 seconds) and your TV should reset with factory settings, just as if you had just brought it home from the TV store.

    Best wishes,
    Mads
