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.

Sounds like the IR sensor in the TV may be faulty, since you have now tried a couple remotes. Make sure nothing is on the IR sensor like tape, plastic, etc. IR sensor repairs are a fairly cheap and easy repair that can be done at your local tv repair shop. If you are still in warranty you can call Philips and tell them that you tried 2 remotes (1 brand new) on the TV and neither work. They should offer you a repair option. If you have any questions regarding your Philips warranty let me know.

Hello. I've got a Philips DVP520 DVD player which works fine except that the machine's IR sensor will not respond to the remote even though I have renewed the batteries therein. I note that the IR...


IR sensors do not light up on any electronic devices. And they do not fail that easily unless tampered with.
In all probability it still must be a remote problem. Try this test.
If you have an AM / FM portable radio switch it on to AM between 600 and 800Mhz. Turn up the volume and then hod the remote on top of the radio ( very close ) and press any button on the remote, you should hear a series of blips indicating the remote is working. If not the remote is not working. Try cleaning the spring contacts in the remote, they tend to rust if a battery has leaked in them.

The remote control sensor on my new television does not work. I have tried several remote controls and none of them work. Is there a way I can fix this myself or do I need to wait for a technician to come...


Unfortunately, only remote can do.

If you have a philip screw driver, soldering iron and soldering lead at your home and have the guts to make the DiY, then, here is what you need to do.

Turn off the TV
On your tv, locate where the ir sensor (infrared sensor). Open the back cover of your television using the Philip Screw driver. Manage to access the small pc board where the ir sensor was attached. Examine closely the ir sensor board. Using your soldering iron and lead, try to resolder all the terminals in the ir sensor board.

After you resolder, then, return it back. And Turn on your televison.

Hope this helps!

It is very very rare for this to happen. I would try other remote or you can google universal remote codes and look for other codes.

Ok...so the remote works...now what


If the problem is the IR sensor, then the TV will turn on and work using the buttons on TV, but wont react to remote.

If instead the TV does not turn on all all , then the TV is on protection because of an internal fault , and must be tested and fixed by a technician.

Replacing IR sensor is not complicate, but t is not an user level operation.
The IR sensor is usually located on the front bottom side of the TV, therefore to replace it you need to remove the main board completely, and many other parts.
Additionally on many models the sensor is soldered to the digital board.

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

The remote control of my philips model #: 47PFL5403/98 is not working, I changed the batteries and still not working. I think the problem is in the sensor lens. how can I solve this problem. Thanks, Miloud


The IR Reciever is faulty if it is an 08' model, the serial number will indicate the manufacturer's date of production. The digits 5,6,7, and 8 are the keys. 5 and 6 is the week of the 78 year.

Have a technician replace the IR Board to solve the problem.
