    The TV will work manaully but will not respond to the TV remote or the Satilite remote. I have changed batteries in both remotes just to make sure, no luck, below is the info you asked for. Is there any special tools or experience needed to do this repair or is it just as simple as pull one part out and plug another one in, any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

It is most likely that the InfraRed receiver in the TV is no longer working, it is a common problem. Not sure of the part number or board it is on. You best bet is to open up the tv to try to find the part number of the board the receiver sits on. Then we could find a source for the part for you.

If you provide model and chassis number, we will provide you with more detail info.
The IR sensor could be defective if It does not respond to any remote control.

My remote has bad reception what should i do? i have a model dtv - 323


nnealrs1998, The remote control may need new batteries. The remote will not receive any information from the tv. The tv needs to receive commands from the remote control. Find where the Receiving "EYE" on the front of tv is and make sure it is dust free so it can see the Infared light signal being sent by the remote. Always point the remote directly at the front of the tv set. Hope this helps. 12fixlouie

We have 2 Sylvania TV's. The remotes work on one TV but the other TV no longer recognizes the remotes. It gradually seemed to lose reception of the signal from the remote. Any ideas?


The tv has a infared remote eye located at the front panel. It is possible that the remote eye sensor has gone bad. You could try cleaning the remote eye lens. There might be debris that got inside the remote eye housing and is blocking the sensor. You could also try installing fresh batteries in the remote.

Need to replace infared eye on 36AF41 Toshiba TV


Yes, the back needs to be removed and the main board slides out to gain access to the IR sensor. Usually, the sensor itself is fine, the connections can get broken. Try resoldering the 3 pins for the sensor first. That alone may resolve the problem.

Keep us posted.
