Point the remote control at the camera in your cell phone. Press a button and see if you can see the LED flashing. If it doesn't the remote is history. If it does, then the sensor on the main board of the TV isn't working. You canbget parts here : TV Parts Universal TV Stands DLP Chips ShopJimmy

Your symptom sounds like a damaged convergence IC.

There are two and large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. They will have a part number stamped on them that will start with an STKXXX-XXX, like STK392-110, and they are located on the signal board (on the left as you look into the back of the set).

I would recommend a low wattage soldering iron (45 watt) available at Radio Shack.

Along with the convergence IC’s there will also be some associated components that will need to be replaced as well. There are some resistors that are part of the convergence circuit that will be open and need to be replaced. Most likely these will appear charred in the center. If you have an Ohm Meter or a DVM, check all the resistors that are close to the IC’s and you should be looking for either ones that have opened or have changed values.
There are also two resistors on the front of the board located in the middle that are fusible link resistors, these should be checked for opens and replaced if they are found so.

I would suggest that you contact a service center in your area for a complete diagnosis and repair, as this type of repair can get a little tricky. But if you want to repair the set yourself, just remember to be careful. The capacitors and CRT’s can hold a charge and may shock you.

If one of the convergence IC’s are found to be bad, I would replace them both, if one has gone bad the other may go soon. I usually order my parts from Andrews Electronics in California, they will have the OEM components that you will need.
Their site is
And their phone number is a 24-Hour Order Desk: (800) 274-4666
I recommend the phone order so you can talk to the person about the different types of IC’s that are available.

I would also advise that the convergence IC’s be OEM or better, just because they are cheap does not mean that they are a good deal. I have seen the cheap IC’s fail after a short time, even though they look exactly like the OEM IC’s. I think that the bottom line is that you will get what you pay for when it comes to the parts.

You can also try , I have not tried them yet, but they do carry OEM or better parts.
Here is the part number for the kit, TV-KIT-2014 Price: $76.95 + $6.95 Shipping

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Hardware solution: The easiest way to play different regions DVD on Mac is to buy a region-free player, however, if you've already got a nice DVD player, you can use hacks to turn off the region code in your DVD player. Note that hacking your DVD player region code is a violation of the DMCA and this is ******* in the United States. Software solution: If you live in the United States and you want a solution that will work on any DVD player but not to hack your DVD player, another best solution for you is to make a copy of the movie, although backing up copies of DVD is currently ******* in the United States, it will become available in the future. Then what you need to do is to using one of the popular ripping programs on the market, here, I would like to suggest you Free DVDAid, which enables you to make a 1:1 copy of the original DVD disc without quality loss with all audio streams and subtitle tracks well preserved. You will get a DVD that works that can work in any DVD player. Pavtube Free DVDAid
