TV remote quit working

My Symphonic WF2703 TV remote began working sporadically, then quit altogether; remote control is working for other components, just won't control TV at all. I isolated circuit RCV101, removed a small IR receiver transistor 342D0017, took it to my local TV repair place, they said they couldn't help. Got any ideas?

    Thanks snakehead, I went to the local appliance repair shop & the TV tech just happened to be there, he robbed the IR from a junk TV and gave it to me no charge! I installed it and the remote works perfectly once again. Thanks for the help!

Here is my blog on the subject how to repair remote controls

To dignose if your remote control is faulty just point your digital camera towards your remote and push the buttons.
If your remote works you should see light flashing on the LCD view finder of your camera.

Repairing the remotes can be succesful about 90% of the time unless the remote has been chewed by the family dog ?

My TV Symphonic model WF2703 needs a new remote control. where can I buy one?

go online and purchase from manufacturer directly

aftermarket remotes do not work for all functions properly

good luck

I have model# WF2703. Remotes do not work, or only sometimes.

An easy way to test for output on the remote controllers is to point them at a camera from a mobile phone. If you watch the camera picture whilst pressing buttons, the LED's will flash and show you the output. If you have dodgey buttons, it will show up as no LED flash.
Hope that helps to decide where your fault is.
