    wow, I didn't even realize the thing got dirty while we were moving, I kinda feel like an idiot! Thanks for your help.

  • oldironfist Feb 22, 2008

    Sorry, but, no. I had the tv unplugged for about an hour, cleaned the IR sensor on it, turned it on and it worked! For about three remote operations. Not it will not respond again. Any other suggestions. The same remote works on another emerson tv I have in the house (neither remotes will work on the messed up tv)

  • oldironfist Feb 22, 2008

    Heheh,

    I like some of the suggestions. Starting with stop watching tv. Truth is I don't watch tv, my family may be one of the last in the nation that doesn't have cable/dish! A few dvd's here and there . .but I am a gamer, and enjoy a good scrape in a hack and trash with my kids!

    I would love to junk the remote idea altogether, and just operate from the TV direct. The problem is the darn thing has no channel control to change to DVD 1/2 (the "extra" input channels).

    Can you tell me more about running these operations via the computer? Sounds interesting.

    From what I gather so far via the web, I'm leaning to the IR sensor problem. I have no idea how to do that, but am investigating.

    Thank you to all who have helped.

Several trivial solutions:
Stop watching television! Sell or scrap that old thing.
Don't control it from remote.
Observe that there is a huge IR source (fireplace, stove...) which swamps out the remote's signal and somehow shade the window (or that bit of the room) from that source.
Leave the TV on one channel and feed it that channel from one of those Tuner/Source-Selector gadgets (...which have remotes.)
Control the television from serial controls etc. via a USB microcontroller attached to your PC, such as a PIC or Rabbit development board; feed it a spare video signal from your PC if its tuner is the old NTSC kind, and you can add an ATSC tuner via PC connections. (Trivial if you like this sort of to-do.)


The photodiodes which detect the Infrared signal are pretty static sensitive, so assuming that no other remote will work on this TV, you could replace that; however of course you should brush up on static electricity safety and CRT safety as relevant (i.e.; not, if it's an LCD.) Also be careful if it's big that things do not fall the wrong way; a spare 2 hands are very handy to trained technicians, they probably will be to you. If you swap the little IR box (1cc in dimension,) you just need a unit that takes the same voltages as before (or; lower, and use a resistor in series.)

There's nothing to say that dust -inside- the television isn't causing the issue, since it did work twice; so perhaps the short path is to clean the inside of that window (and the rest of the TV guts, using some old towels and compressed air) and check for a response then. If that's full of FAIL, you get to go find schematics and do the TV tech's job (or hire the cutest TV tech you can find....)

There is an "eye" on the front of the TV, its behind a red window, make sure it is not blocked or REALLY dirty. Those remotes are pretty powerful and can bounce off walls, Look at the remote LED through a digital camera, you can see the light flash, quick test to see if it is working.

I have AT&T uverse and a 42" Emerson


ATT Uverse remote doesn't work well with Emerson TVs.
Most will turn off with the correct code but NOT ON.
Find the code that will turn OFF the Emerson TV.(volume should work too)
When you want to want to turn ON your Emerson TV Try This (Believe it or not)
Wave ATT Remote slowly and press ON in mid wave. The ATT remote on frequency must be slightly off. This works every time for me now that I know the secret. Remember Doppler Effect from High School Physics.

SEARCHING FOR YOUR CODE
If your device does not respond to the remote control after trying all codes
listed for your brand, or if your brand is not listed at all, try searching for
your code.
NOTE: Before performing a code search for a DVD player or a VCR, turn on the device and
insert the required media.
For example, to search for a code for your TV:
1. On the remote control, press TV once.
2. Press and hold SET until the LED (red light) blinks twice,
then release SET.
3. Enter 9 - 9 - 1.The LED will blink twice.
4. Aim the remote control at the TV and slowly alternate
between pressing POWER and TV. Stop when the TV turns off
(after pressing POWER). If the device does not have a Power
key, you can substitute another function, such as digits 0 ~ 9 ,
CH, or PLAY).
NOTE: In the search mode, the remote control will send IR codes from
its library to the selected device, starting with the most popular code
first.
5. To lock in the code, press and release SET.The LED will
blink twice.
6. To search for the codes of your other devices, repeat steps
1 through 5, but substitute the appropriate device key for
the device you are searching for.
here is the maual for your remote:
