Question about JVC HR-XVC1U DVD Player/VCR
Hello-- I believe the remote sensor in my unit is not working. What is the best way to solve the problem---try to repair or replace? Where to purchase?
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.
