Remote control sensor in tv doesn't work

I have been given a tv that has had the remote control sensor disabled in the tv. How do I resolder the connections on the main board, and are there diodes or capacitors in the connections. If there are, how do I get the right ones, and what directions to they go? I can't seem to find the model number on the site anywhere. It's a Toshiba 32A36C tv made in April 2006. Obviously there is no warranty on this unit due to someone tampering with this set. Also, how do I get a remote or the universal TV remote code?

SOURCE: three-digit code for prima tv for universal control

If you can't find it under prima look under legend
If not read your manual and depending on the remote you have a option for the remote to find the code by itself

Just have to follow the instuction in the remote user's guide in the place that says "Brand not listed"

Good Luck

You neglected to post the Remote's Make and Model. However, most Univ. remotes allow you to "Scan" the TV codes one at a time. You would do this and watch for the TV to turn off. when it does, you have the code and can store it.

The tv sensor doesn't work

the cause it would be a bad infra red sensor or driver circuit for the sensor. but before you come up that the problem is the sensor, you must need to ensure that the remote controller is good.

Remote doesn't work for model ewf2702

Check the infrared emission from the remote control. If it is OK, the infrared sensor inside the TV is faulty. To get more details about how to check a remote control, visit the site named 'Electro-help'. You can search for it either by Google or yahoo.

My original remote is not working. I bought a universal remote and it doesn't work either. Can't get a remote to work on the tv

The remote sensor inside the circuit board of your TV is faulty. It is the component that receives the infrared signals of the remote control. If this component go faulty, no remote control will go with the TV. This component can be located on the front panel board of the TV just behind the infrared sensor window at the front. You have to open your TV to locate this component. It is a three terminal component, look brownish black in colour. The sample picture of it has attached here. It is very cheap to buy, and can be bought from most of the electronic sparepart shops at your town. If you have a concept of soldering and resoldering, you can replace this component yourself at home OK.

I was trying to test a universal remote on my sanyo tv, it didnt work, but now my sanyo remote that came with the tv doesn[t

For your original remote control, try to remove the case of the remote control then check the battery terminals that is connected in the pcb board if loosed, then for the sensor if you have a cellphone with a camera point the sensor in the camera and try to press any button you will see a glowing red light if no your sensor is defective. But be sure to assemble your remote and replace the battery.

Remote not working

You just check whether the remote control has infrared light emission from it or not. It can't be see with our eye, as infrared rays are invisible to us. Put new cells in the remote handset before you proceed. If you have a cellphone with camera option, the things are easy. Put the cellphone on camera mode, and place your remote control just in front of its lens, at about one feet away or so, press each button on your remote handset, The camera will sense the infrared radiation, and you can see its image on its screen. If there is infrared radiation sign, and still your TV doesn't respond to it, your TVs infrared sensor inside it is faulty. It comes just behind the infrared window ath the front panel of your Tv. It is a three terminal component, and can be resoldered out of the board, and can be replaced. Open your TV, locate it and resolder it from the board. go with that as a sample, and buy a new one with same type and number. its number will be printed [laser markling], on its boady, and should insist on it,a s it is a critical part. Replaceing it will solve your problem. Ok

I have a Panasonic CT-30WX54. All of a sudden it stopped responding to the remote. I can only control it by the front panel buttons. My other cable remote that used to control it is also no longer working...

You answer to the fuse thing is NO.

what is the issue here? well its the control board that holds the IR sensor that has failed OR

The lens is so dirty that the infra red is not passing threw it so try to clean off the lens with some rubbing alcahol. If that does not work then your going to need to have the tv repaired a control board is upwards of $70 bucks with your labor.

I hope this does help please do not forget to rate and leave feedback.

The menu button on the tv won't work.

You may have a broken ground on the menu switch. I would say the remote does work. Or you may have a child lock intervention that only a remote can disable. Chances are you do need to resolder the menu button attached to the printed circuit.
