    if everything else works fine, you just need to get a new IR sensor. does the tv kick on and work fine? some of these had bad caps - check my bulletin http://www.fixya.com/support/r5000889-re...

    Hi thank you, yes everything seems to work ok except I cannot turn the tv on with the remote unless I stand close by so I have got into the habit of using the manual switch. How difficult is it to replace the sensor or should I get a professional to do this

Check on the back of the TV to see if you have a "remote in" port. It will look the same as a 3.5mm headphone jack. Unplug the TV and plug a pair of headphone into the port and then remove it. Do this several times to breakup any debris that may have gotten into it or corrosion that may have occurred in the port. If something is in the port it will disable the standard remote sensor on the TV.

The remote on my 42LG50 tv does noot work anymore. It worked fine for a year then quit. Also my comcast remote does not work either.
I replaced the remote sensor in the tv and still the rmote does not work.

LG TV plasma 42pc5d-ab Turns on & detects remote input but no sound/picture


I've fixed a lot of those..Its usually a capacitor on the power supply main board..seen it on all brands of lcd tvs and monitors..You can open it up and the damaged capacitor will be crowned on the top or there will be a gel oosing out the bottom of it..very noticable.

Sharp remote quit working. Lights turn on, could it be the tv's problem? Ga724wjsa


Another way to verify if the remote is working is use your phone or camera to look at the IR eye of the remote while pressing a button you will be able to see a red light everytime you push the buttons to make sure the remote isnt just faulty. For any Sharp TV do it yourself TV repair call us in Centennial, Colorado.

Remote sensor quit working


The sensors do tend to go out on these tv's. You can call an electronics repair man to have them come to you.
It requires soldering the old and new sensor board for replacement.
