The problem is at the infrared receiver inside the TV. Somewhere on the front of the TV is the lens opening for the receiver. Look around the front of the TV for it. A flashlight might help. Its small probably 1/4 inch or so. Then there are 3 possible causes for the failure:

1) You have something in front of the receiver lens blocking it from seeing the remote control - maybe a plant or something?

2) The TV case has shifted slightly from being bumped perhaps so that the case is blocking the lens. If so the case has to be opened and the lens adjustred to where the opening is.

3) The infrared receiver circuit is fried. This happens. Only way to fix it is swap out the circuit board. If the TV is under warranty not a problem otherwise forget it... too expensive.

Another workaround for this problem - if you have cable or satelite TV - is to change the channels on the cable or sattelite box with its remote instead.

Why has my JMB TV stopped responding to the remote control?


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience.

TV LC32SB24U will not respond to the remote control. I check the remote signal using a camara cell phone by pointing the eye of the remote towards the lens of the cell phone camera. I press each button on...


Are you using a remote from a cable issued cablebox or the orginal remote? I noticed my cable company DVR remote stopped working when the OPC setting on the Picture menu of the TV was set to the 'ON' position. Once turned to the 'OFF' position it stopped the OPC feature from activating which seemed to interfere with the response of the remote for some reason.

All of a sudden my TV remotes do not work properly


Since you said that the remote that originally came with the television does not work either, it's most likely a problem with the IR sensor in your television.

To make sure that something more important with the television did not fail, the next time this occurs, walk up to the television and attempt to manually change the options using its controls.

Remote Control Problem


take the batteries out of the Sharp remote press and hold the POWER button on the top of the remote for 5 seconds. Put batteries back in. Make sure that function is set to TV. Should work - if not call Sharp. If you are inside the original manufacturer warranty they will replace remote
