The remote will not work! the remote it self works so it has to be the TV


Check the infrared sensor inside your TV. It can be located just behind the infrared sensor window at the front panel of the TV; will look like this.

Sanyo DS31590 no remotes will work, will not turn on power or volume but changes channels


If you can control the TV by using its front panel controls, and only remote control is not working, the fault may be either to its remote control handset or to the remote sensor inside. The remote sensor is a small component, having only three solder terminals and will look like this. 7_12_2012_12_53_47_pm.jpg7_12_2012_12_54_01_pm.jpg
This is the component inside the TV which senses the infrared rays emitted by the remote control, and convert it to digital signals, and send to the microcomputer section circuit to process. This component can be located just behind the infrared remote window at the front panel of the TV. You have to open the TV to access it, and to replace it. Just check your remote for its infrared emission, before going further. Just get more details about how to check a remote control from this site named 'Electro-help'. Pull up older posts there. Just check this link, and locate the site named above.

Check your remote control for its proper working first. Then think of the remote sensor inside your TV. To get more details about how to check remote control, click this link.
If remote control is Ok, replace the infrared sensor, which can be located just behind the infrared sensor window of your Tv. You have to open your TV, and desolder it out and solder a new one in position. The infrared sensor will look like these. There are sevieral types, and just confirm which type is used in your TV. Picures of some types are attached.

Hi Expert, Both remote control did not work. The original came with TV and the Cable remote control. Thanks


Hello
If both remotes are not working with your tV, the infrared sensor inside your TV is faulty. It should be replaced with same type andnumber. Infrared sensor can be located just behind the infrared window on the front of your TV. It will be soldered direltly to a board, and can be detacted out from it. You have to open your TV, and locate this component. It will be in bronish black in colour and will have three solder terminals. The number will be printed on its body, either by ink or by laser print. Note the number, and it iis very inportant when you repalce it. OK.

I have a sony Bravia KLV-S40A10E 4 years old.Remote controle device is no ore working. Batteries have been changed without solving the problem .. Other Remote device ( DVD-Sony ) is also not working...


Hello
You just check your remote control handset for its infrared emission. There is an infrared light emitting diode [LED], in front of your remote control handset from which infrared light rays are send to your TVs infrared sensor, fitted inside it, behind the infrared window on its front panel. Infrared rays are invisible to human eye. We can check if it is there by using a cellphone with camera option.
Put the cellphone in camera mode, and place your remote control's LED side towards its lens, for about a feet away or so, and when you push its each button, you can see an image in the phones' screen. If it is there, and still your TV don't work with remote control, TVs infrared sensor inside is faulty, and needs replacement.
If there is no infrared image from your remote control, you have to buy one new remote control. OK.

What is a bad remote sensor


Hello
In all remote controlled optioned TVs have an internal circut section and a remotes sensor inside the front panel boad of that TV. The remote control hanset produces infrared rays of differnt frequencies, as we push each of its buttons. The frequency will be entirely different to one an other.
Infrared invisible rays are generated by an LED[ Light Emitting Diode], which fitted on the front side or the remote control hanset, and is directed to the infrared sensor window at the front pannel of the Tv, and will fall onto the infrared sensor inside it, and that sensor will convert these signals to digital format and gives it to the system control Ic to process.
The infrared sensor is a 3 leged element, which can be located inside the front panel of your TV, just back to the infrared window. It may get damaged, or may not get proper volttage. It shuld be replaced, if damaged, or find out the reson for the voltage drop, or no voltage condition.
Normally infrared failure is common. It is not so costly as you think, here in India we can get for about Rs25/= comes about 1/2 US Dollar. Ok.

TV doesn't respond to the remote control...can't change channels


You have to find out if the remote is sending out the infrared signal to the TV remote receiver or not, you can test that by pointing the remote at the digital camera, you should see flashing light on the camera screen when any one of the remote button is pushed (digital camera can detect infrared light). If get the flashing light then the problem is in the TV remote sensor.

Hi Gerald P, just posted we experienced same problem. Few minutes later my husband has finally solved our problem. Don't know whether you can try the same. We had an old FOXTEL remote, got onto FOXTEL site and instructions how to program remote to control TV.

Dowloaded instructions with code for TV (after trying a few tries, the fifth code solved it). FOXTEL control needs to be programmed with the code suitable to TV. By pressing "ON", "AV", Red button and Select (at same time) then put code in. Turn "OFF" then "ON" see if code complies. If not try another one until you get it.

By using the FOXTEL remote on the "AV" you can change the channels on the TV and adjust volume up or down as well.

Hope this can help you in your situation. Glad we are up and running again. Bye
