  • IR receiver gone bad?

    I was wondering if anybody might know what I can do to fix the IR receiver on my VCR. At first I thought the universal remote control had stopped working, but the remote that came with the VCR doesn't work either.

    I took the VCR apart the other day but nothing jumped out at me, although I do have to admit I wasn't looking for anything more than broken connections or loose pieces. Thanks for anything you can offer.

    Throw it away. It's not worth spending a couple of hours to fix when you can get a decent new one for like $50-$60. If it is fairly new, then it should still be under warranty.
