TV remote not working well

In order to get the remote to work I have to walk the remote right over to the tv and use it at a distance of a few inches. I tried changing the batteries on my remote but it didn't do any good. What can I do?

How can I get my Ferguson F1915 LVD 19" TV remote to work from a distance more than one inch?

Three main reasons.
1> Weak battery
2>weak infrared emission due to less intensity of infrared rays comes out from the infrared LED, at the front end of the remote control.
3> Sensitivity of the infrared sensor inside the TV is less. [Defective]
Contact any service technician to make which one is defective.
Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. 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. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.
Search the site by type in this key phrase "how to test a remote control "in the "search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get the related post quickly. [open and clean] [open and clean]

How do i fix my remote

Check it with fresh batteries. If batteries are weak, this might happen. If batteries are good, and still it does not give you distance range, the infrared emitting LED inside it is faulty. To replace it, you have to open the remote control. Check this link. It has details about how to repair a remote control. Pull up older posts. The fault can also be due to a faulty remote sensor inside the TV too. The sensor can be located just behind the infrared sensor window at the front of the TV. Will look somewhat like this.

Dish network remote only works up close. Dish network remote 20.0IR only works for the reciever at about 1 inch from the reciever. Works fine and from any distance for the tv, stereo reciever, and blu ray...

Hey Brandon Kinsley,

It does sound like there is an interference issue with the remote control. Make sure there are no sources of heat or light near the receiver, and that it has a clear line of sight. Other possibilities for interference could be equipment or some LCD TV's have been known to cause interference.

If you continue experiencing any difficulties let me know here and I would be happy to try other steps with you, or see about getting the right remote out so you can make the TV1 a UHF signal to bypass that interference.

I have a 60 inch lg tv. The remote just stopped working Put in new batteries. Tv button lights up on remote but will not turn tv on.

Let me know model number of your 60 inch LG tv to find out possible cause of no remote operation.
I do not think that IR receiver is bad in your tv. Regarding dusty IR receiver lens, you can confirm it by sending remote signal by very close distance to tv.
There are few other possibilities of no remote operation problem instead of bad IR receiver.

TV does not detect remote control.

Remote control receiving sensor circuit problem in the TV. Mostly due to degradation of the sensor over a period of time.

Go close to the TV and see whether you get a response. If it responds try determining the distance back wards. If the remote works up to certain distance, the problem is weak sensor (TV).

If totally not operative it is sensor circuit problem. It could be sensor or it's associated parts.

Panasonic 42 inch HD Plasma TV (2 years old) remote sensor

take your tv and remote to a technician to check on your emitting diode and a photo senser, both are working but not very sensitive. the components are not gone but about to go. if you remove a senser from tv it can not receive, so that senser is sensing some thing, also check an amplifier just after a senser plse do that.

Toshiba 32hfx71 / 36hfx71 remote control only sensing at one inch distance

Since the problem is common on two remotes, the source of your misery has to be inside your set, not with the remote. The receiver in the set may not be positioned as it should be since it is rare to have either end go 'a little bad.' They generally will fail totally instead. Any shop that services TVs will have a simple pen-like detector that will tell you if the remote is putting out enough signal to work as it should.
If your set has ever been repaired, the main board may not be sitting in the slots that act as supports.
You might try to hold the remote in several different positions; holding it below the IR window and pointing it upward, the same for each side and then above the window. If it seems to respond better from one or the other angle, then the receiver is not sitting square behind the window.

TV and remote

Some suggestions: 1. Try fresh batteries in the remote. Weak batteries make it hard for the TV to see the signal from the remote. 2. Is there sunlight or ambient light hitting the TV on the infrared receiver (the part which sees the remote)? If so, it could be "blinding" the TV. 3. DO you have a ceiling fan which is casting a "flashing shadow" onto the TV? This can interfere with its ability to see the remote.
