Remote Control Sensor

Remote control appears to function but TV will not respond. I assume the sensor is not functioning based on info from tech. Is the sensor a replaceable module? If so part number, part availability and price? TY

Had the same problem and had to replace the image board to get remote functions to work. I scoped it all the way to pin 80 on the micro. I now have my remote functions again. Hope it helps.

I have an audiosonic km2120. This has recently been starting to not respond with both remote or buttons on TV. So is currently unusable. Any answers to this please?

In case of front panel buttons not working:
Check whether the Panel Lock function is activated. If this function is activated [ON]' panel buttons won't work. Check it. Refer its user manual for details.
In case of non-working remote control:
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. If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician

Today the tv remote just stopped working.No off/on,No reaction of any button.batteries are fine.TV only works from the side panel.Idon't know where the remote sensor is located on the tv to clean it...

To confirm if the remote control has been working fine, point directly the infrared emitter to your cellphone camera, while pressing any button key at the remote control, you will see the flash of an infrared indicating that the remote control has been working. Click this LINK for more info.
Let me know if you see the infrared flashing.

Remote control-function stopped working. After...

Yes the VCR remote sensor is faulty. It will most likely be the IC, which can be found by tracing the wiring from the detector on the front of the vcr.

Non-functional remote control for Baseline DVD recorder

No do not try soldering the led. This is a led (Light Emitting Diode) It is supposed to look like that. You might have a bad IR sensor in the Recorder itself. The Ir sensor (Infared Sensor) receives commands from the remote and relays the command to the microprocessor in the recorder for processing. To make sure its the remote try a universal remote and program it for your dvd recorder and see if it takes commands of any sort. IR sensor are very cheap the only issue is installing it on the main board of the recorder.

Unit does not respond to remote control

I had this same problem with the Onkyo TX-SR706 this evening, and finally found the solution in the "Controlling Other Components" section of the manual: Resetting the remote control did the trick. (P.S. This problem started after I spent many hours today trying to get my new Acer laptop equipped with a Hauppauge TV tuner stick to correctly display its image on my Samsung HDTV, with sound. I tried connecting the laptop via HDMI first to the Onkyo receiver and then directly to the TV, neither of which worked as it should. I assume that somehow, in all those hours of much plugging and unplugging and fiddling around, I screwed up the remote sensor -- thank goodness I eventually found the "Resetting the Remote Controller" solution a little while ago -- I was approaching the point of ripping everything apart and throwing it out the window!)
