Remote sensors are fickle beasts; and they can develop weird characteristics in any appliance, but they seldom fail completely. It is usually the circuit behind it which can fail, in particular, the function control IC (this IC is easy to locate on the board as the sensor is directly connected within close proximity to it).

When this circuit fails or it becomes weak, the unit no longer receives the correct pulses from the remote. It can be a fiddly repair job, add the cost of parts to that list, and it becomes expensive and time-consuming. You may be able to locate a replacement IRD from an electronics store, which will fit/work like the original did - note its pin orientation and voltage rating (IRDs are voltage rated, typically around 5V), as for the function control IC, unless you note the original's part number, this could prove impossible to obtain.

My guess is that for you it is simply a faulty IRD (or IR receiver) - if you can obtain the right one for your model, it should be an easy repair. It may or may not be soldered directly to the board. Hopefully you do not need a new function control IC as well.

Fingers crossed for you on this one.

Cannot turn unit on with remote


Hello,

the problem lies between the remote sensor of the unit or the remote control itself.

You need to test the remote with another unit or test another remote with the unit to actually confirm where the fault is coming from.

Regards.

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.

Good luck.

The problem I had was with the remote control unit for the steering wheel controls. It shorted out. The head unit was fine. But, when the sterring control unit is shorted it also prevents the hand held remote from working.
