How can I make a TV remote repeatedly send a signal? Answered
Hello everyone. My parents' big CRT tv has a problem with its psu. Its probably the psu's capacitors that have died again. So in order to turn the tv on they have to click the remote's power button again and again and again for at least ten minutes until the tv turns on. It's been repaired 3 times already and because of the repair cost it's not worth repairing it again. Also because it is very big and heavy and it's very hard to move it. Their living room requires a big tv screen but at the moment they cannot afford buying a new tv.
This is how I came up with this temporary solution. Make a circuit that will automate the repetitive clicking of the remote's power button, scratch the remote's pcb paint around the power button and solder this circuit. Unfortunately I'm a beginner in electronics and I don't know how to do it. I can only assume that it is possible with the use of a 555 timer and a relay. This is where I need the community's help.
