Wii wireless sensor bars not lighting up

They aren't supposed to light up. The sensor bar uses infrared light similar to that of a remote control. Infrared is invisible to the human eye. If you've seen videos of it lit up online, it is because some cameras can detect infrared (so they can use night vision).

The remote control does not use wires. It uses infrared (wireless) technology like most remotes in this century.

Does nikon D5000 work with infrared

If you're asking about an infrared remote control then yes. It will work with the ML-L3 remote or equivalent. You will have to set the shooting mode to one of the two remote modes to do so.

If you're asking about taking infrared pictures then not so well. The camera has an infrared filter that masks out most infrared light from reaching the sensor. There are companies such as LifePixel which will remove the infrared filter to convert your camera into an infrared camera.

I have synced my controllers, both wired and wireless, but they are not connecting. I have heard about a gel I can use to make the connection better. Is this true?

Hello carolinemacl,

I'd imagine a gel would not help a controller at all to connect to a console. I've heard of Silica Gel Packs to help soak up moisture from the controller, that is if it got wet, and circuits shortening. Infrared remotes (I don't know if Xbox is an IR remote,) use infrared rays to send and receive messages. Infrared rays will transmit a gel filter. It's a hard question to answer.

If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to contact me.

To confirm if the remote control is working or not, aim the infrared emitter of the remote control directly to your cellphone camera, while pressing any button key you will see the flash of the infrared if the remote is in good condition. Click this LINK for more info.

If there's no flash of an infrared, the remote control is already faulty.
• Replaced the battery to ensure that the symptoms is not caused by low charged.
• Take it apart and check for bad solder joints especially on the battery terminal and on the infrared emitter.
• Ensure that there's no blockage on the infrared receiver in front of the TV.

If you've confirmed that the remote control is already faulty, click this LINK for the replacement.

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

Tv remote not working

Check the remote control for its infrared emission first. You can check it with the help of a cellphone with camera. Eventhough human eye cannot detect infrared rays, electronic cameras can. Put your cellphone to camera mode, place the remote control [ replace its batteries with new ones]; at about one feet away from the camera lens, and press each button on the remote control. If infrared emission is there, you can see its image on the cellphome camera screen. If there is infrared emission for all button press of remote control; the infrared sensor inside your TV is faulty. It should be replaced with same type and number. If there is no infrared images, the remote control is not working, and should be replaced. Check the battery contacts of the remote battery compartment for any rust or dirt. Clean it well before replacing new batteries into it. OK.

Does not work

Check its battery contacts first. In remote controls, if battery contacts get rusted or dusty, proper battery connection will not occur. If battery contacts are good, check its infrared emission. You can check it with the help of a cellphone with camera option. Put the cellphone to camera mode, and place the remote control just one feet away from its lens, and push each button on the remote control. Eventhough human eye cannot detect infrared rays, electronic cameras can. If there is infrared rays emitting, you can see its image on the cellphone screen. If not, be sure that the remote contro is faulty. If there is infrared image, and still the device you wants to control does not respond; infrared sensor inside your device is faulty, and should be replaced. 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...

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.

Does the lutron mir-600 work with homelink?

No, the MIR-600 uses line-of-sight infrared as its communication technology. Homelink works with radio frequency wireless technologies. The two are incompatible.
