Infra red light is present all about us. It is generated by most types pf artificial lighting, and also by the sun. If yo have an infra red beam that is misfiring, it probably relates to some reflected light from a fast moving source that is triggering your beam. Hope this helps, not really sure what a beak beam is... guessed it was a typo. Give me a bit more about your problem if i ahve not helped thus far

    No, the beam must be interrupted by a solid object that blocks it from reaching the sensor. In saying that,they are not infallible, and sometimes, particularly high levels of reflected light like the afternoon sun bouncing off a passing car may trigger the sensor also by overloading it temporarily. You can often adjust this out with a sensitivity adjustment on the sensor. Good luck, hope this information has helped. Feel free to ask more questions if you wish.

Why does my garage door close and then go back up?

This will happen if the IR sensor are sensing an obstruction while the door is closing OR if the IR sensors are defective. As a first option, check to see if any object is stuck to the door (possibly low down) that is triggering the IR sensor.

Westinghouse tv turns off with rmote but cannot be turned on unless button on tv itself is used

How old are the batteries in the remotes? The on/off signal from the remote is the same. There is some lattitude in the IR reciever module for what it accepts. Low battereis may be shifting the signal's frequency or light intensity enough for it to not be recognized.

If sunlight is failing on the sensor or the remote's IR emitter, that can cause interference. Other IR devices can also interfere with the IR signal such as a "Remote Extender" being used for something else.

It may sound odd, but if your remote was working one day and not the next- was the room rearranged? If so, look around for possible sources of interference blocking the beam from the remote, or shining or reflecting light onto the IR reciever module in the set.

My Channel Plus 3445 has quit sending IR remote control signals to remote equipment. I have tried a new IR emitter. No luck. How can I troubleshoot the system or emitter?

Presumably you'd open up the remote and test it with a volt/ohm meter, but you'll need the device's schematic for that.
A quick way to ensure the remote is working: Look through the viewfinder of a camcorder while it is aimed at the remote'd emitter. You'll be able to view the IR beam to ensure that all buttons work -- and to an extent you can view the beam's strength.

Installed a new ink cartridge and the display mentions cover open when it is closed.

never let a machine defeat you
there's a sensor in the printer that checks ink levels. the sensor uses a beam of light to check; if the light bounces back, the machine assumes there is ink in the cart and continues to operate. If the light is not bounced back, the machine assumes that the cart is empty and starts beeping or displaying an error message. on a refill the ink is not "packed in" like it is on a new factory one. so take black electrical tape and tape it around the spine and the outline of the cartridge to make it ALL BLACK with no transparencies, which causes the light to beam back (sensor then triggers error message)

tricking the machine into thinking the cartridge is full defeats it.
