Ok my Sanyo Dp55441is old but works great. Only problem is the eye that catches the remote IR is going out or something.


I would bet the remote is actually going out. Remote receiving eyes very rarely go out. Point the remote at your phones camera. If it is working you will see the ir led flashing.

Thought remote was broke, so bought a new one, still cannot use remote for tv & it is the remote for this model


What is the make and model number of this TV? LG TV?
Testing remote control:
The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera's Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera's screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the TV IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals.

2) If the remote checked out OK, then look at the back of the TV for the "REMOTE INPUT", use a mini-phone plug and insert the plug into the remote input jack in and out a couple times to clean the switch contacts that select between the front IR receiver of the TV or the rear panel IR input jacks

I believe my ir sensor on my tv is no longer working, I have seen on the internet where several people have replaced their own. Please tell me how this is done, and where I may order/buy one


Did you verify that the remote is putting out the signal?

You can try www.shopjimmy.com to see if he has the IR receiver board in stock if it is bad for sure.

Rca rtd170 shuts off randomly except when IR eye on receiver is covered. When IR eye on receiver is covered, it runs for ever! No other remotes in vicinity (same room) as receiver. What could be...


Something else in the IR band is being interpreted as a turn off signal. If you directionally shield the IR eye you may be able to deduce from which direction it originates (keeping in mind that IR can bounce off of solid objects). Anything that emits might be doing it. Once you identify the direction you may figure out what it is and how to shield from it. I'm sure you'll figure it out.

The remote just seems to have worn out, only switshes on when remote is right up against tv set


There are couple things to look at here. Assuming your batteries are fresh, make sure the mirror behind your screen isnt full of dust and film. The IR has to bounce off the mirror to the IR receiver and a film covered mirror will affect that. While you are checking that, also check the IR receiver itself and dust it off. This usually sits close to the lens.
Next, to actually check the function of your remote, all you need is your cell phone. Look at your IR eye(emitter) of your remote thru your cell phone camera and hit the buttons a few times. You should see a light everytime you press a button. Cannot see this with the naked eye.
Good luck!

Dish IR Remote 20.0 has problems after sunset.


The problem for me was the TV giving off IR signals that interfered with DISH's poorly designed remote. When the TV's room ambient light sensor was turned on and it became dusk outside the DISH remote would stop working. Moving the receiver away from the TV helps but the problem is not eliminated until the light sensor is turned off.
Until DISH corrects this poor design there may be no other viable solution.

Broken timer knob


I had the same problem where the time knob broke. I filled in a claim form on the Oster Website and they answered within 3 days saying the timer knob was discontinued and no longer available. They proposed to replace the whole toaster-oven with another model 6073-33 which I received last week. I've to say that their customer service was amazing.
