TV remote control Jammer Circuit – 555 IR Remote block

Sharing is caring!

Just point this small device at the TV and the remote gets jammed . The circuit is self explanatory . 555 is wired as an astable multivibrator for a frequency of nearly 38 kHz. This is the frequency at which most of the modern TVs receive the IR beam . The transistor acts as a current source supplying roughly 25mA to the infra red LEDs. To increase the range of the circuit simply decrease the value of the 180 ohm resistor to not less than 100 ohm.

It is required to adjust the 4.7K potentiometer while pointing the device at your TV to block the IR rays from the remote. This can be done by trial and error until the remote no longer responds.

  1. I tried but the Infrared led is not Working I checked it with my mobile camerano use.But When i use an LED instead it light tiny.Plz Help

  2. Hello, I’m trying to build this circuit and I’m having a problem understanding how the potentiometer is connected in the circuit. I’ve played around with it but haven’t attained the right frequency as of yet.
