So, I’m not sure if my flipper is fully operational and am still figuring out if it suffered physical damage…
And I found out that there’s an issue with IR!
It can learn IR codes. But when I transmit them to the TV, nothing happens.
And I thought: what if the IR transmitter died?
To test if IR is blasting:
I pointed the flipper’s IR in the phone camera → it didn’t shine!
Then I took the original TV remote → its IR bulb shined in the camera!
Seems that the flipper’s IR blaster is dead? But then, how is it able to detect different IR codes?
