Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Yes. I have a Samsung Galaxy S II phone.
I have a Comcast remote. I can control the Comcast Box and change channels and turn on/off the Comcast box.
I found the Philips remote control. But I have not changed the batteries in a long time.
I have not used the original Philips remote in a long time. It did not work even after putting new batteries.
Now I am using the Comcast remote only.
This thing happened after we moved to the a new residence about a year back.
I disconnected the power and held the power button for 10 sec. Still either remote does not work.
I'm sorry to hear that. This does require replacement of the small IR sensor board on the TV itself which is a replaceable component. It is a small board that has a plug in connector to the mainboard. If you want to replace this yourself, the board is typically $25 and I can send you a link. However, I would need you to double check the model number off of the back of the TV once more, as it appears to bne one digit off.
If you're not interested in fixing this yourself, then you're looking at around a $125 repair. In the latter case, you can use the link below to locate a Tech in your area:
