    replace the IR transmitter diode with a new one. And also use new batteries

    I wonder if I could power & control this via USB for a small project I have in mind to switch devices on and off via my computers? I guess I could use the laptops CPU to control the sending and received signals? What do you think?

    it's definitely possible, but if you have to ask, then it's WELL beyond your current skill.

    if it's something you think you might be interested in, you should look into microcontrollers. like arduino, propeller, or teensy. it involves learning programming, but MUCH simpler than computer programming involving USB signals. the basic stamp 2 (the same company that makes the more powerful Propeller) even uses a version of BASIC, which is an incredibly easy language to learn.

    How did you simulate this circuit? Was it Proteus that you're using?

    Hi. Firstly, I'm a software man, never done an electronics project but can use a soldering iron. So could I tackle this one with your instructions? So here's the problem: for my son's wedding in May, he's rented an ancient barn with a beautiful timber roof going up to 5 metres. They want to decorate it with coloured paper lanterns, hanging on fishing line. I suggested lighting each lantern with cheap battery operated 10 LED strings. Problem is how to turn them on/off from ground level, say 4 metres away. There's going to be about 30 lanterns so the receivers must be cheap and operate 3v DC or 4.5v depending if we get the 2 or 3 AA battery models. I don't know the current of the LED strings, here's a possible example http://mobile.festive-lights.com/battery-lights/10-warm-white-led-indoor-battery-fairy-lights-clear-cable.html
    I'm thinking I'll need to solder in the receiver switch in parallel with or instead of the built in one. Would be best if the receiver power comes from the batteries but hopefully won't drain these when not in use as we might need to rig the lanterns 4-5 days before the wedding. So, long explanation... can your project be the solution? What would the rough cost of materials be for 30 of them?
    Thanks in advance for your help

    Hey Inducktion! First off, I wanted to congratulate you on this great tutorial. However, can you please make it clear the purpose of the low ohms resistor, as it doesnt seem to be in the end Shematic. Also, what does the 12v sigh mean. Should I add a 12 v battery? Thanks a lot man!

    can u be little clear regarding how you would obtain square wave output form and ir led which is driven by a 9V battery

    Could this work to turn on and off a led remotely?

    I've been looking all around to make a audio signal transmitter and receiver. It would be really nice if you make one and post it so I can make one too. :)

    I'm actually working on that right now!

    Hopefully I'll get it done in a few days, and we'll see how well it works. It's going to be slightly more complicated though.
