Intermittant remote Can the infared diode in the TV go bad? My tv wont work with the remote sometimes. Ive tried new batteries and a universal remote, still sometimes the remotes wont work. If the tv is unplugged for several hours it will work for a while then quit working with the remote. The front panel buttons work fine.

Yes they do go bad. try cleaning the inside of the remote and check for a bad solder connection with-in the remote. the key pad can get dirty from your handling maybe a good cleaning but do not scrub it just lightly touch the pad with cue tip and alcohol

Samsung Smart TV model UA32J5500AW unresponsive to remote regardless of distance.

1) Make sure nothing is covering the infared receiver spot on the TV. Might be something that simple.
2) Try a "universal" remote -- under $10 many places.
3) If you haven't done this already, unplug TV for a minute or two and when you plug it back in, may reset.
4) Contact manufacturer via their web site for help.

Correct code for universal remote will not turn off tv. On the 50" digital led model ELEFT502. Original remote always had a weak signal worked only when pointed a foot away from infared reciever. Then quit...

No universal remote control will work with any TVs as well as the original ones. If the original remote control do not get range, there are two reasons for it; and can be repaired to.
1. Battery weak [Replace with new batteries]
2. The infra-red light emitting diode at the front of the remote control is weak.[Can be replaced with a new one. It can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops]
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. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician.

Remote dead.

A common problem is that people tend to be rough on remotes. Dropping a remote is the most common cause of failure. This will sometimes crack the circuit board. Depending on how the board is damaged it may not be serviceable.

Sometimes, but on rare occasions, the Infared transmission diode becomes defective, or the frequency crystal fails. A TV service center can fix this if they can have the parts. Normally remotes are not supported by the manufactures for service. They will tell you to order a new remote from their parts distribution.

Have a new Phillips 42" lcd tv. my cable box remote has been working intermittently. However the white light near the remote sensor on the TV blinks whenever I use the cable remote. after changing bat

your TV and, your cable box both "see" a series of invisible (infared) flashes of light like morse code these flases tell them what to do.one answer is to: buy a universal remote so that you can program a button for each device then when you want to control the cable box just push the "cable" button and, then volume etc. to turn your tv off push "tv" then "off" the service man was right but he should have explained this to you
also your cable remote may be programable to work with your tv like a universal remote check with your cable co.

Remote not working

If this TV came with an universal remote, try pressing the TV key. Sometimes it works.
If that did not work any other RCA, GE, Proscan universal should work.

Remotes not working for tv

You have already diagnosed the problem,the remote receiver on the tv is bad,is rare but it happens but before you call for help try unpluging the tv from the wall for 10 minutes and then plug it back in and try it,sometimes this takes care of the problem,if that does not do it you will need the help of a servicer ,your remotes are working but the receiver is not processing the information.If you are familiar with tv service it should be easy to locate the receiver,sometimes is soldered to the chassis and sometimes is part of the push button assembly and conected to the chassis by wires,if is part of the push button is easier to replace,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and ask for help.
