Yeah,it's very easy.

pull out the bottom part(where the speakers are) - they are held with plastic hooks on the inside, they are =on the left and right side and a few at the top. just pull one end and the rest will come off easily.

remove a couple of screws holding the buttons assembly and the bottom of the screen.

slide the screen carefully upwards and when you reach about half way then it will come off.

behold...the sensor is infront of you, it's a small pcb with a light sensor on it. (if you see sensors at the very top or side...they are probably focus sensors)


sure it's not the remote?

Big Blur when i turn the tv on


Hi!

First of all please check the following things:

Press the TV button. Make sure the TV is plugged in. Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is “live” by plugging in something else. Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the remote control solutions. The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Front Panel Block in the Parental Control menu and press OK to uncheck the box. The TV might be performing a periodic diagnostic check. Wait for a few minutes for the TV to turn on.

If still the problem persists then check the following:

Maybe the cable/air function is set to the wrong position. The channel might be blank — change channels. If you’re watching your VCR and it’s connected with coaxial cable to the CABLE/ANTENNA jack, tune the TV to channel 3 or 4 (whichever channel is selected on the 3/4 switch on the back of your VCR). Also check to make sure the TV/VCR button on the VCR is in the correct mode (press the TV/VCR button on your VCR). Check antenna connections. Make sure all of the cables are firmly connected to the jacks. Try adjusting sharpness function to improve weak signals. Closed-captioning might be on. Check Closed Caption in the Setup menu.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Need the remote code for a phillips dvd player


These are the codes printed in the owners manual for your dvd/vcr player.If they do not work you will have to contact Emerson and ask them for help getting the code. The contact number should have come with the instructions for the remote. Just give them the model number of you remote and the units model number and they should be able to help you. I hope this information helps you with your problem. Switch the input selector on your TV to an appropriate external input channel (usually near channel 0).
Press a button on the TV’s original remote control that selects an external input channel until the DVD
recorder’s picture appears. Check your TV owner’s manual for details.

Remote won't communicate with television


The sensor for these Panasonic tvs along with certain Toshiba models tend to have the problem with the sets sensor going out. But if you are using a universal remote because you do not have the original, then most likely you will need to use the vcr control codes to program the tv. but if the original doesnt work either. your insticts are probably right. There is one last trick if you do have the original remote that u can try. I've had this work for me several times on service calls. With the batteries removed. Press every single button on the remote once. make sure you do this nice and slow making sure you are pressing the button down . if its a toggle button or rocker button like most volume or channel up down buttons(meanning that physically the is one button but depending on what part of button you press it does something differemt) well treat these as seperate buttons. Also if the remote has any switches on it. Like vcr/tv switch or vcr 1 vcr 2 etc. Then switch to other position and repeat the process of pressing all buttons once again. (remote does not have too be pointed at tv for obvious reasons) Now replace the batteries and have fingers crossed. Good luck.

Remote control SENSOR not working


This could be a fault with your remote control. It will need checking by a Television Technician.

You can clean the remote control yourself if you are careful. You will need a spray can of Servisol IPA 170.
  • Carefully split the remote control unit along the seal between the top and bottom of the unit.
  • Carefully notice how you then dismantle the inner components. (I lay the components out in the order I take them out of the unit).
  • In a logical order spray, clean and dry each part.
  • When you have cleaned all the components, reassemble in their reverse order of the way you dismantled the unit.
  • Fit new batteries and test the remote control.
If this fails to solve the problem, you will have to take the remote control to a Television Technician for testing.

If the remote is found to be beyond repair, visit www.semenedis.com who may be able to supply you with a replacement remote control. I trust this information will be of help to you.

Changing Remote Control Code

This Remote is capable of transmitting two control codes; one set
to respond to A code control signals and another set to respond to
B code control signals. This Remote control is preset to send A
code signals because your VCR is initially set to respond to A code
signals. You can easily modify your VCR and the Remote to
respond to B code signals. When using two JVC VCRs, set two
VCRs and their Remotes to different codes, so that you can
operate these VCRs separately.

A
Set remote control code for Remote

A
Press and hold A/B.
B
Press the Number key .2..
C
Press OK, and release A/B.


.
The Remote now can transmit B code control signals.
B
Check remote control code for VCR

Press and hold 4
on the VCR for more than 5 seconds while the
VCR is turned off. The code currently set appears on the display
panel.

C
Change code for VCR

Press any key on the Remote. The VCR now responds to B code
control signals.

.
To set the Remote and the VCR back to A code control signals,
repeat the same procedure as shown above except pressing the
Number key .1”

Sylvania tv model # ssc719c


I had the same problem programming my directv remote to recognize the ssc719c. What finally worked was programming AV1 (not 'TV') with the sylvania DVD code 20821. This allowed me to turn the tv on and off and change tv channels, but wouldn't allow me to mute or change the volume. To fix this, (at least in my case) you have to program your remote to recognize the volume and mute buttons in the AV1 slide setting. I assume other (non directv) remotes similarly disable the volume and mute buttons when the remote is not in satellite or tv mode. Anyway, here are the instructions that activated the volume & mute buttons on my remote: "Depending on how you set up your remote, the VOL and
MUTE may control the volume only on your TV, regardless
of the position of the MODE switch. This remote can be set
up so that the VOL and MUTE keys work only with the
component selected by the MODE switch. To enable this
feature, perform the following steps:
1. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the
green light under the DIRECTV position flashes twice,
then release both keys.
2. Using the number keys, enter 9-9-3. (The green light
will flash twice after the 3.)
3. Press and release the VOL+ key. (The green light
flashes 4 times.)
Now the VOL and MUTE keys will work only for the
component selected by the MODE switch position."

To sum up: if you find a code for your remote that will turn your tv on and off, but doesn't seem to do much of anything else, it's probably the right code; your remote is probably set up not to recognize volume or mute inputs in AV1 or AV2. You change that using a remote-specific code that's probably found somewhere on the remote maker's website.
