Re: infrared signal

Inside the tv on the power board there are two ribbon like connectors which stretch across to the main board. I would say that one or both of them have become uncoupled.

The remote works but the tv does not pick up the signal, what can i do?

Check whether the standby/power LED at the front of the TV light up, when power is switched ON. If not, the 5V standby supply is not there, and the remote sensor also won't get power, and won't work. If this LED lights up, standby/power voltage is there, and the infrared sensor inside the TV is faulty, provided the remote control emits infrared rays for each press of its button. If it is a universal remote control, if you have taken out its battery from its battery compartment, the remote had resetted by itself, and you should set it with the setup code to your TV once again.
If you wish to get more details check:
Both the sites have setup code list, and setup procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy.

Vivo LTV42FHD remote no longer working although signal from remote obtainable(?weak). Is it a problem with remote or TV. Can replacements be obtained

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, check the site linked here. If remote control is found OK, the component suspected is the infrared sensor inside the TV. This component will look somewhat like this; can be located just behind the infrared sensor window at the front panel of the TV.
Pull up previous posts, either by type in the Brand name to your set in its search box, or view it in Mosaic / Timeslide / Flipcard option. Select view option by the drop-down view box, at the top left or the display window.

Remote doesnt control tv

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Clean the contacts inside the battery compartment. If rust or dust obstruct the proper contact, the remote won't work. Clean these contacts before you replace the batteries. Check this link to know about how to check the remote controls. If the infrared sensor inside the TV has damaged, the TV won't accept any remote control signals, even though the remote control is good.

Hi Keith,

First of all, thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.

My first advice is to confirm if the remote control is not the issue here and ensure that the fault came from the TV itself. Point directly your remote control's infrared emitter(Sensor) to your cellphone camera and then press any button key at the remote control, you will be able to see the flash of an infrared through your camera if the remote control is working fine. Watch the video below to have an idea how you gonna do this.

If you've confirmed that the remote control is not faulty, this is an indication that the problem is on the infrared receiver inside the TV. I would advice you to clean the TV's front panel infrared lens using a soft cloth, keep away all obstruction from the IR receiver, turn of the bright light in the room and check if the symptoms still persist. If yes, then the IR receiver inside the TV is already faulty and needs to replaced with a new one.

You just check your remote control handset for its infrared emission. There is an infrared light emitting diode [LED], in front of your remote control handset from which infrared light rays are send to your TVs infrared sensor, fitted inside it, behind the infrared window on its front panel. Infrared rays are invisible to human eye. We can check if it is there by using a cellphone with camera option.
Put the cellphone in camera mode, and place your remote control's LED side towards its lens, for about a feet away or so, and when you push its each button, you can see an image in the phones' screen. If it is there, and still your TV don't work with remote control, TVs infrared sensor inside is faulty, and needs replacement.
If there is no infrared image from your remote control, you have to buy one new remote control. OK.

My will not work with the remote any longer. I replaced that. When I manually turn power on, it takes 3 or 4 times before coming on. Then, it will turn off after about 30 seconds. ANy ideas?

There is an infrared sensor inside the tv to receive infrared signals transmitted by the infrared signal generating light emittin diode fixed on your remote control. Either the sensor inside the tv or light emitting diode in the remote controller faulty, remote function will not work. For manual operation troubles, check the wall power socket of plug of the tv is faulty, loose contact etc.

Television is not receiving infrared signal from remote
