TV not detecting remote control signal

I noticed a bunch of ther people have the same problem. Is there a part I can replace? I can't justify the cost of having it professionally repaired. Everything works fine on the TV, except for the remote.

    Yes my MW24FM1 seems to have the same problem. From time to time the 3 remotes (2 cable and 1 OEM) may turn the TV on, but then not work at all for a long time. The 2 cable remotes work fine on the cable receiving box (all functions), but not on the TV. I have reset the code in both cable remotes several times closely following the directions. I've even got the correct code via the remote (0060), but when recoded, the TV does not respond. As I said, the OEM remote does not work either. This sounds like the IR sensor that you suggested; would you agree? If so, is it all that difficult to install? Cost?

    Thank you for your time and expertise!

It's simply a defective IR sensor Toshiba P/N 72796410 and if you know how to remove the main board and have a soldering unit that is a bit more delicate than than the monsters they sell at rat shack, some solder and desoldering braid you just might be able to do it yourself...

Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician.

TV does not detect remote control.


Remote control receiving sensor circuit problem in the TV. Mostly due to degradation of the sensor over a period of time.

Go close to the TV and see whether you get a response. If it responds try determining the distance back wards. If the remote works up to certain distance, the problem is weak sensor (TV).

If totally not operative it is sensor circuit problem. It could be sensor or it's associated parts.

Sylvania 6727fde universal remote code


Hello goyitos,

I would contact the TV manufacture and then see if they can send you a replacement remote. They will usually do this for the cost of the remote with shipping and handling.

I hope this helps
Thank you,

Missing plastic circle: remote doesn't function


If the remote sensor cover is missing on the TV, the remote would still work but you may get other effects like the TV changing channels on it own.
This is due to stray infra red signals.
If it's not working at all I would suspect the remote control handset.
You can test it by pointing it at a digital camera lens and watching the display screen on the camera.
You should see white light comming from the remote when you press any of the buttons if it's working.
Digital cameras can see infrared.

My remote control does not work


You could have a defective IR sensor in the tv set that sends the infared signal to the MIcroprocessor IC. These are something you cant just replace, as it needs to be trouble shot with a scope to see if theres a data signal comming out of the sensor and if there is it could be a bad solder connection somewhere between the sensor plug to the Main IC. Also could be the B+ that supplys voltage to the sensor. Unless you have had electronic repoair experience, You should have a pro assist you with this repair. Sorry I couldnt assist you more with this . Good Luck
