Do anyone know how to replace the remote sensor on the 36A41? I am not sure if I can pop off the cover on the front of the TV to install. I don't want to break it if that is not how to get to it.
I tried everything from replacing the batteries, cleaning the cover to the sensor. The cable repair man told me that it was more than likely the sensor on the TV.

Re: Remote Sensor Repair
Before condemming the infared remote receiver, make sure that you have tried and original toshiba
remote control. Sometimes universals do not always
work. If you do have to replace the (IRR), the main circuit board or the button assembly must be removed. The part is soldered in and has only three wires. The approximate cost of the part is around $20. You local service center would probably charge you $80 to $100 for the repair.
If you have already tried a number of universals,
the chances are that the(IRR is defective). Also try the code search on the universal remote sometimes this will work. Scrivitron

Check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. It's faulty. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Hello If you are sure that the fault is with the remote sensor of your TV, replace it with a new one. The remote sensor can be located just behind the remote sensor window at the front panel of the TV. You nave to open the TV to access it. It is a three solder terminal component. It will look somewhat like this, having brownish black in colour. This component can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shopw at your town; very cheap to buy too. OK
The symptoms you describe is the main processor controller is about to fail, when that happens the tv will eventually become unuseable. if the set is more than 5 to 10 years old you will be further ahead to replace the set.
Take the TV to a TV repair person.Don't try to repair it yourself if you have no idea how to.I know it's probably not the answer you want to hear but sometimes it's best to let a qualified electronics person fix things.You know it's fixed right and you don't have to risk your life.
Get yourself a very thin and small screwdriver. The type that comes in the eyeglass repair kits. Remove the cloth/plastic grill from the front of the sound bar. Locate the IR sensor in the center of the bar. Pry the dark red filter off the IR sensor and leave it off.
Problem solved, greatly increases range. I have read that there is a clear replacement cover you can buy but whats the point?
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.
First Inspect the remote batteries. also make sure TV is not on a LOCK ON option...
now, the sensor is a small smoothly part near the TV front buttons, you can clean it carefully
FYI, exposing unit remote sensor to direct fluorescent or outdoor light may cause signal interference.
