Hello, How do you know it's the IR sensor on the TV that's not working and not the remote?

Expert:  Aric replied 10 months ago.

Did you somehow test the remote? Let me know.

Not sure why you're not able to reply, but if you have a cell phone camera or digital camera, turn it on and view the tip of the remote. Press any of the buttons on the remote and check for a flash of light. Let me know what you find if you'd like to proceed.
