Remote Sensor on TV Doesn't Work and Can't Manually Adjust Menu

I bought this TV from Craigslist for cheap. I knew the remote didn't work when I bought it, but figured I could either use the cable box remote or manually adjust the TV using the keys on the front panel. Imagine my surprise when I find out the remote DOES work, but the TV remote sensor does not! Not only that, I cannot scroll thru the menu using the front panel buttons. Not sure why, btu they do not seem to work. I have no idea what to do. The captions to the TV are stuck on, and I do not have a cable box yet, so who knows if I can access the menu with a cable box remote. My dilemma: How do you remove the cover of the TV?? Is there any way to fix the buttons on the front panel so I can get to the menu? And is there any way to fix/replace a remote sensor without paying a technician hundreds in repair fees? Oh and I am sure it isn't the remote. It programmed my DVD player just fine. Thanks!

    By "TV remote sensor" I mean the sensor ON THE TV, not on the remote itself.

    I have a Philips TV and the TV does not pick up the signal from the remote either. The channel is changed by the cable box so that I can do but I can't change the volume or turn the TV on or off, or switch over to the DVD or another item.

    The TV sensor (Philips) won't work. I can't turn TV on or off, adjust the volume or switch from tv to dvd etc. It really stinks. I basically can't use my other equipment.

    The remote sensor on my TV won't work. Does this site offer solutions to these problems or what?

    I have a 27" Toshiba CRT television. I have been using a Sony Universal remote to operate the Dish box and TV. But the started responding less and less to the remote until nothing. I thought the remote was worn out.


    So I switched to the original remote but it doesn't work either. I do know the remote is working since I can see it flashing through my cell phone camera.


    Is the a replaceable item?

Can I attach an HDMI cable to an old Samsung TV to watch from my computer?


You CAN purchase a converter box to convert digital HDMI to basic analog video and audio, but I counsel against this. Leave the analog TV to be hooked up to other analog devices. Save your money and find a used digital TV selling for cheap or someone might be selling a converter box cheap. You will save money...recycle and support others who do the same. Local Craigslist is a good place to start.

My hp w2007 monitor keeps going to sleep mode when turned on with the computer on


I'VE BEEN HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM FOR MONTHS - SOMETIMES THE MONITOR WILL BE FINE FOR A FEW DAYS AND OTHERS IT WILL NOT COME BACK ON NO MATTER WHAT I DO. HOWEVER, I FINALLY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM AND THUS A SOLUTION AND IT ACTUALLY DIDN'T COST ME ANYTHING.

MY CPU DOES NOT HAVE A VGA OUTPUT SO I WAS GOING TO GO BUY A VGA/DVI CABLE ADAPTER BUT INSTEAD I FOUND A VGA/DVI ADAPTER IN THE BOX THAT MY COMPUTER CAME IN. I ATTACHED IT TO THE DVI CABLE THAT I ALREADY HAVE AND PLUGGED THE DVI END INTO MY CPU (SINCE IT ONLY HAS A DVI AND NO VGA OUTPUT) AND THEN THE VGA ADAPTER END INTO MY MONITOR AND WA LA... IT WORKS NOW AND HAVEN'T HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT GOING TO SLEEP.

WHAT I IMAGINE IS HAPPENING IS THAT THE DVI OUTPUT ON THE MONITOR IS FAULTY - EITHER FROM THE FACTORY OR THE PINS HAVE BEEN DAMAGED SO MY CABLE WAS NOT WORKING CORRECTLY. IN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS WRONG, I BOUGHT A BRAND NEW DVI CABLE AND IT STILL DIDN'T WORK SO I KNEW IT WAS NOT THE CABLE. THAT NEW CABLE WAS RETURNED TO THE STORE FOR A REFUND!

The image is too wide


It would be helpful if I knew what else you had in the setup. Mostly I just need to know if you have a cable box, I will assume this is the case.
I had this problem with my Tv, if it running through a Bose system the problem is most likely with the Bose system, you need to go into the options and go to picture and select Full Screen instead of widescreen.
If you are not using a Bose system then the problem is still fairly simple.
  • Look at your remote for the Tv, locate the menu button and press it. A menu should come up.
  • There should be a video or screen option in the menu select it.
  • There should now be a wide variety of options to choose. Choose the normal option.
  • Then close the menu the video should now fit the screen.
If this doesn't work then it be your cable box, to fix that you follow the same steps just using your cable box remote instead of the Tv remote.
If this doesn't work comment and I will see if I can figure out another problem.
Hope this helps.

Cant get program codes to work on AKIA tv with rca converter box


I recently bought a used LCT2060 that had no remote. I figured my comcast cable remote would work without a problem but it didn't. So 3 universal remotes later I found my solution...a radio shack2_bing.gif universal gamer remote. It controls up to 5 components plus your xbox360, playstation and pc. The price on sale was a mere 12.97, not bad if you ask me. Hope this helped. The code that worked for the Akai2_bing.gif was 11676. Take care...

Code for toshiba remote#ct90251 towork motorola hdtv cable box


When you program the unit, have the TV off, it is probably interfering. If possible, have the front of the cable box behind the TV. I was also told by the cable company to take the lens out of a cheap pair of sunglasses and tape it over the reciever on the cable box. This will block the interference from the TV. Haven't tried it. I have a Toshiba LCD and having it off while programming the reomote to the Motorla cabel box worked.

Remote Sensor on TV Doesn't Work and Can't Manually Adjust Menu


I just realized that there is no usb port on this tv. Called tech support at vizio since I'm still under warranty. They're sending a new remote. I know it's not the remote because neither the verizon nor the vizio remote works, although the vizio remote will intermittently work if I'm one foot away from the sensor on the tv and holding the remote on a downward angle. Tech support says they will send a new remote to rule that out before they send a tech over. I'll check the posts to see if you find a solution when I finally get the tech guy out here. If not, I'll let you know what he does.

Good luck.
