Toshiba 50A62 Remote Infrared Sensor

No remotes will work to power on, change channels or volume. All has to be done from the front panel. I tested the various remotes and batteries (used cell phone to view the infrared signal coming from the remotes).
Looks like the internal receiver sensor (part number is 23000852 behind the TV screen ?) is the culprit ?
Never saw a sensor behind the screen before. I checked a supplier (http://www.tritronicsinc.com/storefrontB2BWEB/index.do?action=i) and they have the sensor for $ 1.55

Sanyo DS31590 no remotes will work, will not turn on power or volume but changes channels


If you can control the TV by using its front panel controls, and only remote control is not working, the fault may be either to its remote control handset or to the remote sensor inside. The remote sensor is a small component, having only three solder terminals and will look like this. 7_12_2012_12_53_47_pm.jpg7_12_2012_12_54_01_pm.jpg
This is the component inside the TV which senses the infrared rays emitted by the remote control, and convert it to digital signals, and send to the microcomputer section circuit to process. This component can be located just behind the infrared remote window at the front panel of the TV. You have to open the TV to access it, and to replace it. Just check your remote for its infrared emission, before going further. Just get more details about how to check a remote control from this site named 'Electro-help'. Pull up older posts there. Just check this link, and locate the site named above.

There is a infrared light sensor inside the TV which detects the infrared rays emitted from the remote control, when we press each button on the remote control. If this sensor has got damaged, the set won't respond to any remote control handset. The sensor can be located just behind the infrared sensor window at the front panel of the TV.

TV doesn't respond to the remote control...can't change channels


You have to find out if the remote is sending out the infrared signal to the TV remote receiver or not, you can test that by pointing the remote at the digital camera, you should see flashing light on the camera screen when any one of the remote button is pushed (digital camera can detect infrared light). If get the flashing light then the problem is in the TV remote sensor.

Infrared sensor won't work in a Toshiba TV


The remote wouldn't work on my brand new 46" Toshiba TV. Comcast person said the tv gave off an infrared signal that interferred with the Comcast remote.

Solution was to turn on cable box FIRST, then TV ( now I use All On button, which turns on cable first). If I turn on TV first, the remote wouldn't work consistently. Hope this works for you.
