Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a 61" projection TV (Model#61HS30) The remote sensor seems to not be working anymore. I had three remotes (one is the OEM)that used to work with the T.V. none of them get a response from the T.V. now. What can I do? I talked to a local repair company. They want about $200 to fix it. Don't have that much. Can you help me?

    No one seems to carry this part (A-1372-934-A) in stock. Does this part have the remote IR sensor on the board. I would like to do this myself as I do not have the money to pay a repairman $80 just to drive to my house. I see the diagram that you provided but it doesn't give details on how to take the front cover (screen) off. Would you please give me some detailed instructions on how to access the H4 board. Also would you be able to tell me where I purchase the board from someone that would have it in stock? Thanks.

    I tried those links already and none of them have the part in stock. That was why I was asking if you know if someone had the part "in stock". The link you sent for the manual does not work. I downloaded Winrar but it keeps coming up with the following error message. "You need to have the following volume to continue extraction."

  • wootang7469 Sep 08, 2009

    I apologize I for telling you that no one had it in stock. I was trying to find a better price than what the parts store had. I found better prices, but no one had it in stock. As far as the 6 part file I did download all 6 files the first time you instructed to do so. I've never used Winrar before and it is not user friendly at all. Are you able to assist remotely (take over my computer)?

  • wootang7469 Sep 08, 2009

    Is there soldering involved in doing this? I appreciate all of your assistance with this. I wish I could just hire someone to fix it but money is tight right now.

  • wootang7469 Sep 08, 2009

    O.K. I will try that route. I just cancelled the order for the board and placed an order for just the sensor. Wish me luck.

    I just checked Part Store page and its ready to accept H4 board order online that means H4 board is in stock. I placed 3 Qty, price is $37.95 and total amount is $113.85

    Click again that service manual link, that page has 6 files for one manual and you need to download all 6 files (parts of big file) then unzip it with winrar to get one big pdf file of manual.

    Thanks.

    You can replace IR sensor only on H4 Board that is also available with Part Store for $20.95 where as H4 Board price is $37.95

    I would feel better if I can help you out.
    Yes, soldering work is involve if you replace remote sensor on H4 board. It is 4 or 5 solder joints and can be done easily or ask help from any friend that knows soldering work.
    Thanks.

Remote sensor location


Remote receiver is located on tiny PC board at the top and just in front of the middle of the three picture tubes---board is about 3/4 inch wide and maybe 2 inches long----pretty standard IR unit.

Look from back with back cover removed and it is in front of the middle lens there.

My remote will not work the tv anymore


Hi,

there are three possible causes for this problem;

1. Batteries may be dead inside the remote.
2. Remote might be defctive.
3. TV remote sensor/infrared might be defective.

Battries; Simply insert new batteries into the remote and try again. If changing batterises doesn't help, problem as to be from the Remote or TV's infrared.

Remote: Check the remote battery terminal, see if its not rust. Also, disassemble the remote, can check the connection between the terminal and the remote board, see if there is no disconnection of any kind.

If after checking and all seems well, then it means the remote is defective. To confirm, borrow a remote, test it with the TV. If it works, then it means you need to replace your remote. But if the remote you borrowed does not work, then it means the problem is from the TV and not the remote.

TV: There is a sensor in the TV that communicates with the remote. If this sensor is defective, the remote won't communicate with the TV.

The TV sensor might have loosed contact from inside of the TV or it maybe defective and need to be replaced.

So do the above troubleshooting and let me know if the problem is from the TV or remote. If problem is from the remote, you need to do a replacement. But if otherwise, let me knows as well.

Yours sincerely

My remote control will not work despite putting in new batteries. If Lkeft for a few hours it will work a couple of times before not working again.


Maybe time for a new remote. But first, try some different batteries and make sure there is clear path from the remote to the unit. If you have a universal remote, program it for the TV first and try it. If it works, your other remote should be replaced or use the Universal remote to control the TV.

No remote control will work the tv anymore. Could


Hi I am Vortash , Its possible the IR detector has gone but unlikely , it is more likely that due to a low battery in a remote the signals have corrupted the remote processor this used to happen a lot with the old EMI and Bush sets and sometimes it is just a fact that the remote has given up the ghost . You can check to see if your remote is working with your Iphone or any phone camera . Put the phone on record and place the remote in front of the lens , if it is working you should be able to see the infrared diode flashing in the phones viewscreen . If it is working you will need to find out the de- corruption proceadure for your model of set hope this helps regards Vortash

The remote does not work. My satelite remote


There is usually a remote module mounted on the inside of the front of the tv that senses the remote signal. This controls all functions of the tv. If you are not comfortable in troubleshooting this, I would recommend a repair center.
