Introduction: IR Remote Tester

About: I break things so I can figure out how they're made when I put it back together.

This instructable shows how to build an easy IR Remote Tester.
Parts Required :-
1. TSOP Remote Control Receiver
2. Buzzer
3. 9V Battery
4. Breadboard
5.Breadboard Wires
6. LED
7. TV Remote

The buzzer should start beeping and the LED should start blinking rapidly when different buttons of the TV remote are pressed.
Enjoy. :)

    Good one !

    But I would suggest an another easy way to check it.

    Turn on your mobile cam and place it facing your TV remote, Press any buttons on the remote and you can see the IR light blinking through the mobile cameras.

    IR light does not fall in visible spectrum but thanks to cameras which can read these lights.

    This is the reason why IR lights are used in Night vision of Security Cameras

    If the aim is just to test if the remote is sending any signal at all, then easiest is to just turn on the camera in your hand phone and look at the LED on the remote with the camera while pressing buttons on remote. The camera will show blinking remote LED as it registers IR light besides visible spectrum... Thats way easier... Unless am missing something here.

    how come you didn't have to use a resistor before the LED?
