Question about Sony KP-61V90 61" Rear Projection Television

The TV does not pick up the sensor from the remote control. The remote control works fine with the other Sony TV. I try to replace the remote sensor on the TV, but I don't know how and where to buy.

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:

Sony bravia remote not working, and tech says not remote need to replace the sensor in tv. Can a noon geek do that.


Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
If the remote control is OK, the tech might be right. The infrared sensor inside the TV should be replaced.

Tv doesn't pick up signal from remote


Hi Connie,

First of all, thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.
Please ensure that the battery is in good condition. Check the battery terminal for corrosion, Scratch it with fine sandpaper.
If the battery and its terminal is not the issue, please confirm if the remote control emits an infrared by pointing directly the sensor (infrared emitter) to your cellphone/digital camera. If it is working fine, you will be able to see the flash of the infrared through the screen of your camera. Watch the video below.




If you've confirmed that there's no infrared coming out from the remote control then this is an indication that the remote control itself is already faulty. Replace it with new one (part no. 0980-0305-3300 ).
If you can see the flash of the infrared, the IR board inside the TV is faulty. Please inquire at this link for replacement.

Hope I helped you.
Good luck and have a great day!

My original remote with this model stopped working several months ago.I bought a phillips universal remote and that worked fine for several months and that stopped working.I bought a new Phillips...


The first possibility is that the new remote control is a dud out of the box. It can happen. Another possibility is that the remote sensor in the TV has failed. Then the remote is transmitting, but it's not being picked up by the TV. (The lights are on but there's nobody home.) If you can, return the new remote to the store and exchange it. Then, if the set still doesn't respond, you'll need to replace the remote sensor.

Replacement Sony RM ED009 remote not working


Remote sensor on the tv may not be working. Try using a camera by aiming the remote IR sensor of the remote control at the camera lens then press and hole any button and check if you see a flicker of light. If you do, the remote control is transmitting, if not, the remote control is not working. This will tell you if the remote sensor on the tv is not getting the signal from the remote control
