There could be an IR interference from another source, perhaps florescent lights, DVD player, TV, etc. To locate the source, leave everything off except the receiver and TV. Turn one component on at a time and try the remote to see if the remote still works or not. If it still works, turn on next component. Try the remote until it stops working. Once you find the source,try moving it to a new location. If you don't find the source, then we may need to replace the receiver. I hope this helps.

M420mv vizio led television ir infrared doesnt work


that can be caused by either the IR sensor board or the main board. The IR sensor board would be suspected first. You can get the IR board or the main board from www.tvrepairworld.com

Vizio m470sv remote stopped working, bought a vizio replacement remote...still no good????


What you are dealing with is not a bad remote controller, the problem is from your IR Sensor. You will need to replace this IR Sensor. You Vizio TV has a common defect with the IR Sensor. Make sure you order the revised version so you don't encounter this problem again. You can find the IR Sensor here: 3637 0022 0189 0171 1671 0892 Vizio IR Sensor

I need to replace the infrared sensor unit for Vizio L37 HDTV.


Good day!!!

Before I answer your question let me clarify something..

  1. What sensor you need to replace is it on the remote IR (infrared) or the receiver on your TV?
  2. Did you try other remote control?
  3. How did you say that you need to replace the IR sensor or receiver on your TV?
To test the remote please use a digital camera..How? place the shot to infrared of your remote then look at the screen of your camera after that press any button on your remote and look if the IR sensor lights up..

Please answer all my clarifications for me to diagnose the exact problem..Because replacing of IR sensor on TV is difficult..

Thank you for using fixya and choosing my service..

Remote won't work. Tried new batteries, reprogramming, etc. Universal Remote doesn't work either. LG #42PC5DC


Hi,
To confirmed if the remote control is working fine, aim the remote control sensor(IR emitter) directly to your cellphone camera. While pressing any button key on the remote control, you can see the flash of an infrared emitted by the remote control if it is working fine.


If you've confirmed that the remote control emitted an infrared but still the tv won't communicate with it, this is an indication of faulty IR sensor board of the TV. Check if there's an obstruction from the IR receiver in front. Keep away all of it, clean the plastic window of the IR receiver with soft clean cloth.
If the symptoms still persist, you have to replace the IR sensor board. Check the actual part no. of the board before ordering.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi, I bought a lg plasma tv model 55LD520, and now my dish network remote won't work unless I'm literally 2 inches from the reciever. What can I do? Please help


I had the same issue with the 55LD520 and my Dish 722 receiver.
Check out this link for some suggestions:

Putting black tape over the receiver IR sensor seems to be working for me.

Remote Controll works inconsistently


Have you replaced the batteries in the remote with newones? If you have, you may have IR interference from some source in yourroom. It could be from a florescent lamp, another player, or even the TV. Isthe receiver in an open space or in an enclosed area? The IR sensor needs adirect line of sight to work properly. You may also check the receiver ifanything is obstructing the sensors, maybe dust. I hope this helps.

IR sensor bad. How can it be fixed?


You may be spot on with your analysis. If you have a new IR receiver installed it may cost around $100 plus or minus to do so.

However, first, make sure the eye lens is not covered or dirty. Clean it off with a soft tissue to remove any oily film or other dirt or smoke. Then aim the remote very carefully with the original remote control (with good batteries; make sure) and slowly move away checking its function. If it does not operate from at least 10 feet is is substandard. (Be sure there are nothing obstructing the IR beam to reach through the IR eye). ---------- You can get the new ir sensor from electronics shop dealing in tv parts just get the exact model number of tv.and brand name.

Dish IR Remote 20.0 has problems after sunset.


The problem for me was the TV giving off IR signals that interfered with DISH's poorly designed remote. When the TV's room ambient light sensor was turned on and it became dusk outside the DISH remote would stop working. Moving the receiver away from the TV helps but the problem is not eliminated until the light sensor is turned off.
Until DISH corrects this poor design there may be no other viable solution.

Dish 20.0 IR Remote works for awhile then it


I MAY have a solution!! We too have the VIP722 Dish Network receiver. Ours is the "K" model. I called the place where we purchased the TV and they said that the "brightness" on the TV may need to be turned down. He walked me through this, and it worked. The remote WORKS now!! Our TV is a 40" Sony Bravia that we purchased a couple of months ago. Evidently at night, the TV was so bright in the room, it interfered with the Infared Remote control. By turning down "off" brightness detector on the TV, the IR remote was able to send the signal to the receiver. Our TV is on a cabinet and the receiver is directly underneath on a shelf. I hope this solves your problem and anyone else's that may have this problem with the remote.
