    OK it's not the remote. They all seem to be functioning fine. Does anyone know the infrared sensor part number and where to fine a board replacement.

Two possible reasons.
Faulty remote control.
Fault infrared sensor inside the TV.
Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.

Hi I was wondering if there was a detailed guide on how to replace a emerson lf391em4a IR sensor.

Here's where you can download the owner's manual, if you'd like to science your way through such a replacement. Walmart Emerson LF391EM4 39 1080p 60Hz Class LED HDTV

And this TV may be similar enough to follow this guy, with necessary adjustments Sharp Elite PRO 60X5FD IR Board Replacement

Unfortunately, cheaper TVs are meant to be sort of disposable, as most would just want to buy a new V than to fix it themselves. It may be glued together and you may have to break some seals and some warranties doing this yourself.

Good luck!

My pioneer pro 1140hd elite remote is not functioning. A spare remote doesnt' work either so it must be the tv itself. How to fix?

If the remotes have both been tested (shops can check with a tester all buttons) you may have a remote receiver in the set that is bad--some the remote will not work or only works with remote very close to set.

Many digital cameras in a very dark room will react the same way when a remote is pointed at them and buttons pressed---a faint flash on the camera display.

Dark horizontal line

likely coming from main board which is involved in all signal---on screen display comes directly from a different area---4 years is about the life span of one of these sets---Google the model number with parts to see which boards it uses and what they sell for.

My Pioneer Elite PRO-111FD just shut off on it's own, and now won't turn back on. No green or red indicator light... nothing. Any suggestions?

Check your power source (electrical outlet) and the power cable. If electrical outlet is ok, try using a different power cable (the cable that you plug on to the electrical outlet going to your TV set). If everything is ok but still no indicator light, call your technician there might be a problem with the TV power supply.

Tv shuts off after about a hour only 4yrs old

We had this same problem for months and the tech told us it wasn't worth fixing so we took the back off our 60inch sony grandwega and cleaned all 3 internal fans and it hasn't shut off since.One of the fans was not working due to dust.

While you have sound, take a flashlight and shine it on the screen, look very close and see if you can see a dark video image.
Let me know what you see.
