I have a Sony home theater system. The model number is HCD-BC150. The\nIR sensor has never worked. I'd lost the reciept so I couldn't take it\nin for warranty work. I have no experience in this type of electronic\nrepair. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'd just like to know\nif it would be worth it to take it somewhere and have it looked at, or\nif there is a more simple option. I have used the remote it came with\non other players, so it is definitely a problem with the reciever.
