The IR sensor is in fact a "plug in device" .
The TV will have to be disassembled to replace the sensor.

You should make sure the remote is functioning before you do anything as drastic as taking your tv apart.

I am sure you have tried fresh batteries so the next step would be to hold down any button on the remote, the led light should have a faint pulse, it may be hard to see and you may have to go in a dark room but the led will pulse if the remote is good.

If you have a universal remote, program it for your tv and test functionality.

An RCA universal remote will work with your tv, if the codes don't work do a search with the remote.

If you decide to replace the sensor you should be able to find one at http://www.shopjimmy.com or http://partstore.com.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Please rate this solution, the only compensation I receive is a good rating from you.

SOURCE: LG TV 32LB9D VOLUME STUCK AT 100, NO RESPONSE TO REMOTES

The fault may be on the control board. Sometimes the button switches can be stuck, or there may be something causing some conduction on the control circuit board. It is also possible to have a component failure that is causing a continuous command to keep the volume to the high position.

Something that causes failures of controls in TV sets is when people clean the screen, they spray liquid cleaner on the screen. Some of it drips down in to the controls and on to the circuit board. This will usually cause damage, and thus the set will require shop service.

IR senor may not be bad. Try using a different remote (universal) and program to TV. If universal remote works and your doesn't, you may need to purchase a remote instead of IR board. If you confirmed that the IR board is bad then replacing the IR board will fix the remote issue. IR board is an easy fix. Just open the back cover out and it's located right in the middle toward the bottom of the TV.

SOURCE: I have an LG 37 inch LCD. The remote control

Most of the time it is the Main Board in the TV that the sensor plugs into. They have had many issues with this Board causing this problem. To be sure, you will need to call a professional.
Hope this helps,

I've got an LG 42LD450-za television that the IR sensor doesn't work on. It brings the set from sleep mode, but no further. Obviously I tried a new remote with the same results... any suggestions?


If the TV responds to the remote, then the sensor is working. Likely you have another issue related to the TV function internally. Check that you have a picture or sound and report back.

that can be caused by either the IR sensor board or the main board. The IR sensor board would be suspected first. You can get the IR board or the main board from www.tvrepairworld.com

Hello I'm finally back again I got a customers LG tv Model #37lg30 it does not respond to the remote the buttons on then side alow us to operate the tv I tried the remote on another


Check on the back of the TV to see if you have a "remote in" port. It will look the same as a 3.5mm headphone jack. Unplug the TV and plug a pair of headphone into the port and then remove it. Do this several times to breakup any debris that may have gotten into it or corrosion that may have occurred in the port. If something is in the port it will disable the standard remote sensor on the TV.

My LG 32LD320 won't turn on. I have no standby light and have even tried changing the fuse. Help please!


If total dead best way is to follow the AC voltage from power cord inside the set to see where voltage is lost.

Also , were you having any problems having to turn set on several times to get it on?

How do I replace the IR remote sensor on my LG TV?


My LG TV stopped responding to the remote. A very helpful repair technician told me to stick a head phone jack in the sensor jack on the back of the TV a few times to clean out the contacts. Now the remote control works fine.

LG LCD TV won't respond to remote controllers


sparrow00, your fix worked for me, and I think I know why. The 1/8" remote input jack on the back of the TV has electrical contacts inside that are probably there to sense the presence of a plug-in remote. When they detect the insertion of this plug they disable the front panel IR (infrared) receiver and the TV only responds to this plugged-in remote and the buttons on the TV itself. After some period of time these contacts get corroded and the circuit is no longer completed between them. The TV now thinks an external remote is plugged in, and it ignores its own front panel IR receiver.

When you plug a 1/8" plug into this remote socket on the back of the TV it wipes away the corrosion. When you remove the plug the internal contacts conduct properly again and the TV responds to its front panel IR receiver. For best results you should plug a 1/8" headphone plug into this remote jack and twist it a few times, then pull it out and repeat several times. Repeat every frew months or whenever the TV acts up.
Thanks for your solution!

My TV won't respond to the remote control


If the remote is working but the TV will not respond, it means that the little IR receiver in the TV has stopped working. This is most likely because the receiver has burned out, but it could also have come loose. This is a very easy thing to correct, but the set should be serviced by a qualified tech.
