Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a KP-57WV600 television and I think the IR receiver messed up on it because no universal remotes or the factory one will work... also used the camera trick and the original projects a white light..I pulled the front off and looked at the board... wondering if I can replace the module or board or what other fix I need to do... Thanks

You can try to order the front panel board from Sony at 1800-222-SONY. Most likely it will not be available. If you see a metal casing will a little grill on it , that is th IR pick up. On the board, it should have a location number that you can order it from Sony or a Sony Parts Distributor.
Hope this helps,

Vizio vl370m remote control

If remotes have been ruled out the only way to test the remote infrared receiver is with the set apart/ and a schematic measure voltage at the receiver when the remote is used---most of the time since the part is rather small this is just replaced to see if it is or is not the problem; some receivers will fail where if the remote is held very close they work--always the receiver in that case.

The remote IR receiver may have gone out, or the logic board is not processing the IR signal from the IR receiver board. You can check and see if the IR receiver board is getting 5vdc feeding it.

Remote works but TV does not receive

The IR reciever failure rate on LG tv's is fairly high. A few things to try first.
  1. Clean the IR window on the TV.
  2. Fresh batteries in remote(even though it works other devices)
  3. If you have a universal remote, program it to the tv for testing puposes.
Let me know your findings and we can go from there. Lone99star
