Question about Sony KP-61V90 61" Rear Projection Television
FYI All, I finally got around to actually fixing the remote sensor on the TV. The sensor is located behind the O in the Sony logo on the front of the TV on the HC board. It is easily removed by removing the back panel of the TV and unscrewing the lower front-screen brace (there's an S sensor attached w/ one screw which needs to be removed first). Once the brace is removed, you can pull out the board which has a 3 pin connector w/ 2 grey wires and one white wire. simply disconnect this connection to remove. On my board, I found the 2 zener diodes were bad, I simply replaced w/ Radio Shack 12V zener diodes and all was good-to-go. I happened to run across Radio Shack part 270-640, which is a compatible IR sensor, didn't need it, but it will work if your sensor has gone.

Hi , i had the same problem and i was buying several universal remote control trying any possible solution till i figured out a solution. I opened the tv and reached the sensor itself on the mainboar, it is like a small glass bulb with 3 legs soldered to the bord, i tapped on it for several times with a screwdriver and tried to short the legs thinking that it will discharge any possible stored static electricity and everything went ok and my tv is working again with any universal remote control.

Yeah! ... After extensive digging around, I found the service manual at the
following location. You have to create an account to get the DL (9.3 Mb) and the
site is in Spanish, but the manual is in in English. The remote sensor
is on board HC and should be a simple fix:
