My CD player's infrared receiver for its remote control has failed. (The remote still works with a friend's identical player.) I'd like to buy a replacement receiver and solder it in. How do I identify it?
The service manual for GF-650 names its receiver FM-6038TM2-5A, which has the X, but lacks the side legs.
I can't find my unit's service manual.
Digi-Key lists over 500 through-hole receivers, but only two have a photo showing a metal cage, and those cages have quite a different shape.
All I really want is to be able to navigate MP3s on a thumb drive! The front panel lacks the necessary buttons that the remote has.
Should I instead work backwards from the remote's transmitter?
Edit: bottom view.
