Question about Philips 32PFL5403 LCD TV
I have a Philips TV (32PFL5403D/F7) and the remote control is not working anymore but I am sure the remote control is not the problem. I noticed that the LED in the TV's lower right corner does not blink anymore when the buttons on the remote are pressed. The LED used to blink even when using different remote controls from other devices. How do I change or repair the IR sensor? I have not called the Philips customer service because I do not have the receipt as the TV was a gift.

Normally, this happens when the TV detects a bad circuit board and goes into " Protection Mode ". The blinking red light should be a error trouble code. I don't have the Service Manual on hand for your model number to tell you what the code means.
Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.
You have a few choices:
1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you red light blinking codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.
4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

If SAM gave you the Philips universal remote without programming it for your TV, you should request the remote that come with the TV. Does the remote look like this?

There are plenty of places you can look. Shopjimmy.com. Tiger parts direct. Encompass parts are just a few. Just google the part# and some part suppliers will pop up.
