The sendor on the tv that communicates with the remote is not working

    The remote is fine. We even tried the original remote that came with the TV as well as another learning remote that came with the cable box. Nothing. The TV only works with the buttons that are affixed to the TV.

Hello,

How sure are you that it actually the sensor/infrared on the TV that is cause of the problem. To confirm, Test your TV remote with another TV like your and if the remote works, then you are actually right about the sensor.

Now, you will have to replace the remote sensor of your TV.

It might also be that the TV sensor has removed from the TV board. To find out, you will have to open the TV, trace the sensor by looking at its position on the TV. If its well fixed, it means you will have to replace it.

To replace, get a soldering iron, use it to remove the sensor, take it to any electronics repair shop withing your vicinity and get the replacement sensor there.

Note, that TV stores a lot of electric current that can cause electric shock, so wait a while before your open the TV's back cover.

Good luck.

GVA remote has stopped working


Hello,

If new batteries did not fix the problem, then it means the problem is either from the remote or the TV.

Remote: Check the remote battery terminal, see if its not rust. Also, disassemble the remote, can check the connection between the terminal and the remote board, see if there is no disconnection of any kind.

If after checking and all seems well, then it means the remote is defective. To confirm, borrow a remote, test it with the TV. If it works, then it means you need to replace your remote. But if the remote you borrowed does not work, then it means the problem is from the TV and not the remote.

TV: There is a sensor in the TV that communicates with the remote. If this sensor is defective, the remote won't communicate with the TV.

The TV sensor might have loosed contact from inside of the TV or it maybe defective and need to be replaced.

So do the above troubleshooting and let me know if the problem is from the TV or remote. If problem is from the remote, you need to do a replacement. But if otherwise, let me knows as well.

Regards.

Remote control not working


Hello
Check the remote control for its infrared rays emission. If no emission is there, it won't work. If there is infrared emission, and still your TV does not respond it, the infrared sendor inside your tV will be faulty, and should be repalced.

Get ito this blog. There is details about how infrared remote controls can be checked. OK.

I hit my Wii Remote off a bed and then the sensor broke


The sendor is quite delicate. You better buy a new remote.
