Remote Control Sensor

Remote control appears to function but TV will not respond. I assume the sensor is not functioning based on info from tech. Is the sensor a replaceable module? If so part number, part availability and price? TY

Re: Remote Control Sensor

Had the same problem and had to replace the image board to get remote functions to work. I scoped it all the way to pin 80 on the micro. I now have my remote functions again. Hope it helps.

If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. 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.
If all other functions, except the Volume + / - button on your remote control works properly, the fault is with the remote controls' keypad. If no buttons on the remote control works, it might be due to a non functional remote control, or with a faulty infrared sensor inside your TV.

Key lock function is now ON with your TV, and side panel key won't work any more, till it has been unlocked. But, if you want to unlock the key-lock function, your remote control must be OK.

Today the tv remote just stopped working.No off/on,No reaction of any button.batteries are fine.TV only works from the side panel.Idon't know where the remote sensor is located on the tv to clean it...

To confirm if the remote control has been working fine, point directly the infrared emitter to your cellphone camera, while pressing any button key at the remote control, you will see the flash of an infrared indicating that the remote control has been working. Click this LINK for more info.
Let me know if you see the infrared flashing.

Remote control won't work for any function but when I manually use the TV's volume control and cycle the volume up and down the remote now functions in all capacities?

I would guess there is an issue with the remote sensor. These are normally located on the same board as the manual controls inside the TV.
