Remote Sensor Problem

I have two of these televisions - we'll call them TV1 and TV2 for sake of clarity. TV1 stopped responding to the remote. I thought the problem was with the remote, but the remote still works on TV2. TV2's remote will not work on TV1 either. I'm wondering if the problem could be with the remote sensor itself since the real problem doesn't seem to lie with the remote.

Given that both remotes work with TV2, more likely the IR sensor on TV1 is defective.
The problem could also be in the microprocessor itself as well.

    If you are just replacing the IR sensor is easy, but if the microprocessor is the one defective; i would say that the part may not even be available anymore. If that is the case, a new TV will be a better option.

Toshiba 32a14 does not respond to remote control


Hello
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. To access it, you have to open the TV. It is a three terminal component, will be soldered diretily to front panel circuit board, of with the main baord itslef. Will look somewhat brownish black in colour. There are so many types can be seen . Just look what type if fitted with your TV.

I have dish network and I just received a new remote I was able to program the remote and can see the channels for dishnetwork but somehow the channel that my tv is set on to receive the signal has been...


Hopefully after 3 months this has been resolved, but if not, here are some simple steps to take. If you are in TV1, where the receiver box is, you want your tv set to channel 3 or 4. Depending on the cables you have, you may need to put your tv on an input. Usually Video 1 or 2. If you are at TV2, the location away from the receiver, you will want your tv on channel 60 or 73. If neither of these work, try to unplug the receiver from the power source for about 10 seconds. Hope this info helps.

The television has stopped responding to its remote and a cable remote.


Hello SKrokau:

Have the IR sensor (Infared Sensor) replaced in this model. It is a common failue for Sylvania televisions. The IR sensor is the device used to receive commands from the remote and relay the commands to the microprocessor for processing. The sensor is very inexpensive and the total to repair should not cost you more then (FYI) $80.00 for parts and labor.

Have a Happy Holiday!

Try channel buttons on TV, if it doesn't work then you'll need a cheap universal remote control.

No response from remote


Remote problem could arise from either tv or remote. First check your universal remote on some other tv and if it is okay your tv's infrared sensor has stopped working. You can get it from the local component shops, take the existing sensor with you. This problem could be from the micro processor in rare cases. Best of luck.

TV does not respond to remote


Sounds like the sensor on the television has gone bad, since it works for the VCR. Try a universal remote that you can program the TV and VCR codes into and try it out. If it works for the VCR and TV then you know it's the remote, if the TV still isn't responding then your TV sensor is toast.

Remote No Longer Works


It appears the remote sensor in the Television itself has stopped working. If the TV is still under warranty I would try to contact the manufacturer to see what they can do for you. Can you still change channels manually? If so, this is most likely the case.
