Make sure that the remote is working by pointing your remote to a IR sensor or use the phone camera to detect -- open the phone camera/digital camera and show the remote with button pressed on to the camera as it will be displayed if IR works.
If so then the IR detector in the TV must be taken out , checked and replaced. You can measure the incident voltage on the IR sensor in the TV if present but not sensing it is faulty but if working without any action then the processor is also a suspect.

My sansuii tv was put on standby with my pantek remote for the night..but when I wanted to turn the tv on again the remote refused to do I cant turn my tv on..please help

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. If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician.

I have the bush urc-3541 and have put in the code for a Sony tv but it only works with the remote virtually touching the tv infrared panel! Any thoughts why this might be?

It sounds like either the infrared panel is broken or the sensor which sends the infrared signal from your remote is damaged. Usually, infrared is very reliable unless there is something blocking the "line of sight" or the view between the devices. Below is a link to clone an infrared signal to create a new remote or you could simply purchase a universal remote. Good luck.

Infrared Toshiba

It sounds that the infrared sensor inside the TV is faulty. This sensor can be located just behind the infrared window at the front panel of the TV. You have to open the TV, and unscrew out the board that has this part; soldered on to; to replace it.
The said part will look somewhat like this. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. Surf the site in "MOSAIC" view. It will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience.

The remote works but the tv does not pick up the signal, what can i do?

Check whether the standby/power LED at the front of the TV light up, when power is switched ON. If not, the 5V standby supply is not there, and the remote sensor also won't get power, and won't work. If this LED lights up, standby/power voltage is there, and the infrared sensor inside the TV is faulty, provided the remote control emits infrared rays for each press of its button. If it is a universal remote control, if you have taken out its battery from its battery compartment, the remote had resetted by itself, and you should set it with the setup code to your TV once again.
If you wish to get more details check:
Both the sites have setup code list, and setup procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy.

Tv doesn't pick up signal from remote

Hi Connie,

First of all, thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.
Please ensure that the battery is in good condition. Check the battery terminal for corrosion, Scratch it with fine sandpaper.
If the battery and its terminal is not the issue, please confirm if the remote control emits an infrared by pointing directly the sensor (infrared emitter) to your cellphone/digital camera. If it is working fine, you will be able to see the flash of the infrared through the screen of your camera. Watch the video below.

If you've confirmed that there's no infrared coming out from the remote control then this is an indication that the remote control itself is already faulty. Replace it with new one (part no. 0980-0305-3300 ).
If you can see the flash of the infrared, the IR board inside the TV is faulty. Please inquire at this link for replacement.

Hope I helped you.
Good luck and have a great day!

Infrared sensor won't work in a Toshiba TV

The remote wouldn't work on my brand new 46" Toshiba TV. Comcast person said the tv gave off an infrared signal that interferred with the Comcast remote.

Solution was to turn on cable box FIRST, then TV ( now I use All On button, which turns on cable first). If I turn on TV first, the remote wouldn't work consistently. Hope this works for you.

Infrared signal connects to tv etc but then dies

If the infared reciever on the reciever is that bad you might consider getting a Infared repeater (look on ebay, they are like $50. they work pretty well

The IR detector is in your TV set. It is the device that picks up or captures the IR signal from your remote control and turns it into an electrical signal that the TV via a processor interprets as a function or command to have the TV perform in a certain way as turning on, channel up or down, volume up or down, etc.

IR means Infrared

I hope this answers your question.

Thank you,

Infrared signal

Inside the tv on the power board there are two ribbon like connectors which stretch across to the main board. I would say that one or both of them have become uncoupled.

I just can't get it to work, new batteries and all.

First check if the remote control is sending an infrared signal. If the LED is flashing, this does not mean the Remote control is sending the IR signal. There is a separet Infrared LEd that sends the signal. To check the IR, point the remote control in a video camera or any camera with real-time monitor (phone cam, webcam, etc.) and press any button. You will see a white flash coming from the Remote control. thjis works best if the camera is black&white, for color camera, the IR is still visible but quite faint. Another way of checking the IR (if you do not have a camera) is to press the RM in front of another device with remote control and while doing so, press the correct remote control . If that other does not function or functions erratically, then the remote control in question is emitting an IR signal. If there is no IR coming out, the solder conection of the IR LED might be the problem. It is rare that the IR LED will be damage because the remote control is only 3 volts. If the remote control does emit an IR signal, then the TV remote reciever is defective. I had this problem with a CD player that I have fixed. The IR reciever looks like an LED (dark colored) with three pins (V+, signal, ground). Cost less than $3
